I just wanted to let everyone know that this icon journal is not dead! I of course, suck at updating, but I also have another valid reason... my powerbook finally died. so all of the icons i did have on there -- which, admittedly, weren't a whole lot for five months -- are now gone.

Luckily (?), I do have two (kinda mediocre) icons to share, since they were uploaded into my userpics before my computer crashed.



(the first from is from dollhouse, the second is from mad men -- just in case that was not obvious)

The good news is that I bought a new laptop recently, and just installed Photoshop, so I'll be able to make icons again. I've missed that.

For now, if anyone wants to SPAM ME WITH CAPS I'd be super grateful. :D

Feel free to spam with just about anything. I just ask that if it's not something I've iconned before, please be careful of spoilers?

I recently added this add-on to Firefox that enables color management because of issues I've had with Photoshop CS4 and my browser, and since that affects what icons look like, I got curious and decided to take a poll.

Internet Explorer
4(12.1%)
Safari
2(6.1%)
Opera

These have been piling up for several months, and I figured the time is past due for me to post them, so here they are. Some of these I kind of hate, and some I like. All I know is next time I don't want to wait to post so long, because it takes forever to upload and I still managed to screw up the numbering.

I was planning on picspamming the whole episode, but I got lazy. In the meantime I decided to picspam one scene from the episode, just because. No preview because of spoilers (and because it's kinda short).

I've been thinking about people who leave feedback in icon journals (whether it's just 'taking #5, thanks!' or 'these are pretty!' or 'ew, these suck') when responding to comments, and was curious about how they prefer to be responded to, so I thought I would do a poll.

if you leave feedback on an icon journal, would you prefer the icon maker to:

respond by saying, 'thanks' or something similar
2(9.1%)
respond by saying something other than just 'thanks'
4(18.2%)
not respond at all
1(4.5%)
you don't care whether or not you get a response
13(59.1%)
something else (explain in comments)
0(0.0%)


Personally, I like getting feedback because I like to know what people like or don't like as much. Even though I primarily make icons because it's fun (and sometimes challenging if the cap is difficult to work with), I also make them to share with other people as well (otherwise, what would be the point of having an icon journal?). If people respond with longer comments than just 'taking, thanks!' it seems appropriate to say something in response. If people do just say, 'taking, thanks'- which is fine too, of course- on one hand it seems rude not to respond, but on the other hand it might get annoying seeing 'you're welcome' (or something to that effect) if the person leaving feedback is just being polite. So basically I just wanted to know what you all thought.

Finally- an update. I'm hoping these don't look too weird. I finally got used to using my Mac and it broke, so I made these on (someone else's) PC while it was being fixed. Not a whole lot of different fandoms this time. I made Grey's Anatomy icons, which I never thought I'd do again. I am thinking of doing requests soon, just because. Also, I've decided I'm actually going to respond to people who comment. I didn't before because I thought it would seem insincere, but I'm kind of over that. I do appreciate when people comment, so I might as well show it.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I was on hiatus from icon-making because my computer is being fixed. I'm using someone else's right now and recently got Photoshop. Unfortunately the icons I was going to post won't be posted for awhile, but I'll be able to make new ones in the meantime. :)

I am not really inspired right now, so I wanted to take a poll.

Which episode of Angel should I icon?

Which episode of Buffy should I icon?

Which episode of The X-Files should I icon (none in season 9, please)?

Which episode of Veronica Mars should I icon?

Which episode of Firefly should I icon?

Anything else you would like to see (whether or not I have iconned it before)?

This is basically a miscellaneous batch of leftover icons from my last post and a manipulation of Maya Herrera and River Tam-- it's my first manip ever, so it's not that great, but I liked it enough to share with everyone anyway.

So. These were supposed to be for i_episode back in September but they were never finished, and then I was busy starting school and a new job, so I just never posted them. But here they are! All 29 episodes of Dead Like Me, one icon per episode. I was trying out a few things, some of which worked whereas others didn't. Also, some were made more recently than others so again there is a varying degree in quality...

Wow, three months! Some of these have been sitting on my harddrive for awhile, so that is why there is such a varying degree in quality. I'm not sure how I feel about all of these, as I was trying out different things, but some of these I'm quite proud of. Also, a few of these are partly inspired by blindbeats, echoism and ofthesea (keyword being inspired- I'm hoping they don't look like copies or anything!). Next batch I plan on iconning some new and/or different fandoms, and I will hopefully be updating much sooner than three months.
