I decided as my big foray back into iconning I'd try out some of these 20 in 20 challenges. So this is my entry over at doctorwho20in20! My subject for this one is Sally Sparrow, as played by Carey Mulligan, from the Doctor Who episode Blink. Blink is one of my favorite DW eps of all time, and Sally is one of the main reasons! So I thought her a spectacular subject to choose for a first time back out. Wish me luck!

I do have lots more icons from other icontests and just plain playing around that I'll post sometime soon ... but for now, have these!

+ Comments are love <3 (if only to let me know how many people like them!)
+ Credit is nice.
+ NO hotlinking!! Spare my photobucket, I beg you! ;__;
+ Please enjoy! ^_^

Could I be the only? Though I am a lost cause ... Collapse )

Alright, I know, my last actual icon post was all Obama icons too, but I promise I will have another post in the next couple days that is entirely made of other things. ^_^ For now, I bring you icons of the Illinois senator and our soon-to-be Democratic Nominee, Barack Obama. The first 30 icons have my version of the Obama 'O' and most of them are sayings and slogans collected from my fellows at obama_2008. Nice work, guys! The rest are largely made from new graphics posted at the official Obama Website as well as this Obama Media site here, and then a few interpretations of pictures of the man himself and some of my favorite of his magazine covers. To finish it all off, I made myself a background from all the magazine covers of him I could find, with a few fun little graphic things here and there, and I thought I'd share it. So, share and enjoy! <3

Edit: I've added 9 icons per requests of several people. Hope you enjoy them, too!!

Go from THIS to this:

My winning icon over at severalplums! Which means I had to do a tutorial for it! :D

I use Photoshop CS3, and although there's no Selective Coloring in this tutorial, I'm not sure what is and isn't translatable, so you'll have to be the judge of that! Really, this is more of a texture tutorial, so hopefully you like or want to learn to use textures! Oh, and I'm very wordy, and there's lots of steps. But I hope I do Rodney and John justice. ;)

As some of you may know, I've been a Barack Obama supporter for a while - slowly on my way to becoming 'fervent' about it. XD So I felt like making some icons! A bunch of these are twiddled versions of the 'buddy icons' that are downloadable from the Media section on the Obama website - they're all kinds of different designs of the campaign logo for different 'groups', like Latino, Women, Veterans, Faith-based, or the youth-oriented 'Obama Generation'. There's a few other versions of the logo in there as well, the white in particular has some of the Obama rally chants and my favorite Obama quote. Also, if you think of something you'd like on one of these in the way of text, let me know. And most of all, enjoy them. And remember ...

Yes, We Can.

From this: to this:

This is a PS CS tutorial (I use CS3) using levels and selective coloring, so it's not translatable, sorry. As requested by marcal_92.

I also made a few random S2 Torchwood icons on top of the Ianto icons for the tw_icons100 challenge, so for accessability purposes, I thought I'd put them all together here, and that way more people might come and look and be interested and take and so forth. Also, I put in some icons I made for a friend of the immortal Diana Rigg. So yeah. Enjoy them.

[45] Multi-Subject Icons
[01 - 10] General Torchwood S2 (through Reset)
[11 - 29] S2 Ianto Jones for tw_icons100
[30 - 45] Diana Rigg

What good's a team if you don't get a last minute rescue?!?Collapse )

So, the humiliation of not fulfilling my last 100 challenge has made me feel I need to redeem myself here. Therefore, I have dedicated myself to making 100 icons of Ianto Jones from Torchwood Season 2 (the current airing season) for tw_icons100! I love them all, and I am seriously enjoying this season, but Ianto is one of the biggest surprises for me - his character has really blossomed, and he makes me smile. So I hope to do him justice here, and I hope you enjoy the effort! Oh, and if it hasn't sunk in yet, this is no place for an unspoiled Season 2 person to be. XD

This will be updated more and more as I fill the table, so definitely check back now and again to hopefully see more! So, please look at the rules, credit, and above all, ENJOY. Oh, and Ianto loves comments almost as much as he loves coffee.

Subject: Ianto Jones, S2
Screencaps: From marishna and The Institute.
Resources: See my resources page, my tutorials post and my rules page.

x-posted all over the place. Sorry if you were caught in the rubble!

Oh, muse. How you come and go. Well, she's back, and in force. I've done a little bit of icon fiddling and entered some icontests in between now and December, and I just claimed a new 100 challenge, which I shall start posting soon. But before that, I need to post all these icons I've made in the past month or so! So, world, here we go!

Please make sure you credit Threadless as well as me if you take the Threadless designs!
