[49] Unposted icons of 2013

Hi, everyone. I've been mostly not here for majority of the year [yadda yadda yadda.]as I got quite busy, and moved from my old apartment, and had a few trips to do, and trying to make some sense of a few things, etc.--basically stuff that left me without much downtime. I've missed iconning and maybe someday I will come back and do something--there are some really interesting challenges going on!--but before these get too dated, let me leave you with some unposted icons that I was sitting on before I "left".

A number of them were posted on some challenges (and an unfinished battle with wikidwitch), but the majority were for an unfinished batch of icons for theiconquest's Chapter Four, which was to make ten icons for every class. Sadly, I didn't finish the quest--but since I'm not sure when I'll ever get back to making these things, here they are anyway. (And lots lots lots of sadness at theiconquest being gone.)

[04] Pride and Prejudice
[12+2] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
[5] Jane Eyre
[10] Don Jon
[6+3] Joseph Gordon-Levitt
[7] Miscellaneous [full list]Downton Abbey (2), Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Escaflowne, Becoming Jane, Sense and Sensibility, Back to the Future

[46] Austen and Bronte

Hmm. I promise I will icon other things at some point.

But for now, have some more Austen! ;) (And Bronte, of course.) And you should also check out the battles these were for: a BBC costume miniseries battle and an LBD battle.

[8] Pride and Prejudice
[8] Emma
[8] Jane Eyre

Also a quick promo:

[44] Wheel of Time, various anime/animation

Yay more graphic novels and animation icons ♥ I recently caved and bought a hard copy of New Spring, and then digital copies of some of the first issues of Eye of the World--both from The Wheel of Time. Both are pretty okay, if sometimes a bit inconsistent, and a few parts where the wrong speakers are attributed to a line. And notably some clothing shifts at some point, i.e. Moiraine and Siuan suddenly wearing Accepted robes when they were already raised.

BUT I DIGRESS. The result of all that is a few Wheel of Time icons, from Eye of the World. I liked the New Spring art better, but I don't have digital copies of that, so...yeah. (Hopefully this batch is a LOT better than my first WoT batch...shudder.) This one is for the Bard path in theiconquest Chapter Four. Nobody else has made any entries for that particular path, it's so sad :(

(I realized how stupidly crazy I was making YET ANOTHER TEXT BATCH once I got to like the middle of this. Hence I am so sorry, these have such lazy text styling choices.)

IN ADDITION! A couple wonderful amazing folks have held an Animation icon battle, so go check out all our icons here. I have mine on this post but you should check out the pretties there as well ♥

[25+4] Wheel of Time (Eye of the World graphic novel)
[15] Miscellaneous anime and animation [full list]Shin Sekai Yori, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Dumbo, Princess Tutu, Legend of Korra, Code:Breaker, Disney's Aladdin, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Tangled (2010), Psycho-Pass, Adventure Time, Paradise Kiss, Durarara!, How to Train Your Dragon, My Little Pony

Anime/Manga rumble time!

Quick pimp!


(Let's forget the fact that um I don't exactly have a lot of time. Lol.)

[25] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (+text)

So last year when 20inspirations opened again, I applied and got accepted. Only, real life got in the way and though there were a bunch of challenges I wanted to enter, I just didn't have time (for a lot of things, really). But this round is a text round and I felt that if there was anything I needed to do icon-wise this month, this needed to be it.

Yum LBD. So many quotable quotes. I totally meant this to be a bright, sunny, vibrant set but...well obviously my muse wanted something else. LOL

[20+5] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

[23] Austen, McGuire, etc.

Oh wow. It's been such a long time since my last icon post :O I have been very very busy, so this is a bit of a mix of things I've iconned for various challenges. We held a heroic people icon battle, among other things!

That said, a bunch of the icons I've made over the past few months are waiting for battle posts to go up and so forth, so hopefully when they go up I can post them :) There are a bunch of Austen and a bunch of LBD icons in there, and I'm also working on another set...

[4] Seanan McGuire (Discount Armageddon/October Daye)
[3] Jane Eyre
[3] The Sound of Music
[6] Emma (five from this graphic novel)
[1] Mansfield Park
[2] Sense and Sensibility
[2] Clueless
[2] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

Coloring Ramble

halesmoon requested a coloring guide, but as I don't particularly think coloring is a strength of mine, I don't know if I should be giving guides on it to anyone! However I have developed a series of steps, somewhat, that I usually do when I make icons, so I thought I'd just go through those usual steps/techniques I do whenever I want to heighten the colors in my icons.

In particular she also highlighted these three icons, so I'll be focusing on the stuff I did on these three :)

Program used: Photoshop CS4, on MacOS
Translatable: Some sections are.
Complexity: Easy
Note that wherever I say ⌘, it's usually the equivalent of Control on Windows.

My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky.Collapse )


An Austenverse icon challenge


An icon contest/challenge community for all things Jane Austen -- books, period or modern-day adaptations, and any media about Austen herself. It's open to everyone and rounds run for two weeks. More about the community here, and the first round is up. :)

Do let me know if there are any issues--first time running an icontest comm!

[31] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

It is a truth not very universally acknowledged that Angela can be cuh-RAZY obsessed with things when she discovers them. So here, have some more Lizzie Bennet Diaries icons. (Also, done for my first attempt at theiconquest's chapter five.)

[25+6] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries

How difficult is it to get back to making icons after a break? Ugh. There are also some older icons in this batch, along with some remakes. Over the break I've also gotten obsessed with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, so here you see some proof of that :P

[17+1] The Lizzie Bennet Diaries
[4+3] Tolkienverse
[4+3] Howl's Moving Castle

...plus Star Trek, Elementary, Harry Potter, Pitch Perfect, Paradise Kiss and Jane Eyre.
