"and there ain't nothin' I can do about it!"  
1. I can't believe it Joss is going to direct an episode of Glee and he said he's been watching every episode multiple times. I kind of feel like he's blessing Glee for me :P I've obsessed with the Jossverse for so long and now it's time for the reign of Glee.

2. Post a picture in my comments that you think describes me when you think about what/who I am. No matter how surreal or plain. Give no written explanation. Just an image.

3.

a)
oh lord this is dull. I think I just added some contrast to the original picture, so... not my best.

b)
I love that this looks like an ink blot painting thing. I love the colours and patterns in the background. I love that I've made a very common cap (it was from the hottub scene) into something that's me. My main problem with it is the lack of emotion in the original cap :/

c)
I think this is an amazingly dull icon, but I love the way this colouring makes black and white images look.

d)
I think the textures are overpowering the brilliance of the original image

e)
I like it but I don't feel like there is enough depth to it. Everything is feeling rather flat to me. I'm definitely going to try and have another crack at this.

f)
another variation on colouring a black and white image. As a whole it seems a bit generic, but I'm crazy about the light texture in the top right hand corner.

g)
a combination of the two icons I'd made last time I'd posted icons. I definitely think this is better than both of them separately.

h)
made for the gradient challenge at theskilltester, oh my god that challenge was hard. But it was a good kind of hard, the kind that makes me want to attempt using gradients a lot more. I really like the red on the right and I think the cyan is WAY too overpowering.

i)
I'm in love with this. It's the perfect photo of Natalia and the colouring is something that I wouldn't do normally but was forced into by the opacity theskilltester challenge. I love the multiply texture and the depth that it gives to the icon. And I really like the blues on the back of Natalia's head. The crop is spot on for me and my style and it's definitely one that would go into 'my top 25 ever' list if I were to do that again.

4.

take me and my opinions out of the question,do you think it would be a good idea for me to make a graphics community? would it make your life any easier? do you think it might make my life easier? do you think it would provide anything useful to the world at all?

nah, it'd be a waste of time. If anybody really wanted to look at your graphics they can come to your personal journal like the rest of us
3(27.3%)
yeah! Everybody else has one for a reason, you know. They're so much easier
8(72.7%)



5. I haven't posted any pictures of myself in a while and the old ones don't even look like me anymore

I like the first one; you are right about the colouring though. I like the crop and you know me and my black neg space icons . . .

I also like f, esp after I read that it was originally a b&w image. I've always been rubbish at recolouring b&w images -- I think I managed to do it and do it well one time ever. So mad props to anyone who can accomplish it. I wouldn't have known at first glance if you'd not said anything. G isn't really my thing, but I love that you used two previous icons to make a new icon -- I do that all the time and you're so right that you're often more pleased w/the new outcome. I've thought about make a whole post w/icons that I've done that way -- another art form, I suppose. And you're right about i, it is fabulous.

I voted no on the poll -- I created an icon comm for my stuff and then never used it. So it was really just a waste of time for me. I've always been just as happy to use my personal journal for icons. Saves me time. On the other hand, I'm sure there are people that have my journal friended for icons that don't give a damn about my personal posts (even though I flock a lot of those). So IDK.

I can't believe C and F came from B&W images, they're so beautiful!

I luv your coat.

Ok I'm pretty sure if Finn and Kurt had babies they would be you :P Seriously.

i) turned out really great. I definitely agree with you there :)
Joshblueymcphluey on October 24th, 2009 08:09 am (UTC)
lol, that's such a weird combination :P why?

haha, I hate making good icons because then I have to do better next time XD
Stephharbourlight on October 24th, 2009 08:45 am (UTC)
I dunno, you just kind of remind me of both of them. :P In a good way though.

Hi!

Since you're a fan of Sean O'pry, I thought it was nice to invite you joining seanopry_fans.

Thanks.
Have a nice day! :)

I'll do the meme in a sec. But first - ICONS!
I love g, h and i. They're fab. G is probably the best version of that icon you've done - good job!

I think the thing that's getting me with d and e is that the texture on both of those is sharp, whereas the picture in the background is really soft. I think it could work... just not sure how.

RE: icon comm. I didn't answer the poll, because really, the only difference between having one and posting them here is that you'll get more publicity. Doesn't make life any harder or easier. So yeah, it's just a case of whether you want them publicized or not.

Joshblueymcphluey on October 26th, 2009 01:36 am (UTC)
:D yay!

oh, that's a very good point. The original picture is a bit blurry so maybe I need to use that to my advantage.

good call, I think I need to learn to publicize myself more so I think I will.

I love "f" I don't know who it is but the light and the coloring are perfect. I like how you balanced the contrast and the blue texture on the left fits very well!

:P thanks! It's Cesar Casier (model) btw :D

Such a prettyboy you are, really photogenic. I'm liking the 'strike-a-pose' shots! So it should be good seeing some more photos of you, I'm interested in how/what you're gonna model because obviously, you pose real collected. I'd like to suggest that you pick a theme every week (or hey, I could pick one for you :P) and you do photos around that - but that's just a suggestion! Might make it more challenging :D
Joshblueymcphluey on December 16th, 2009 02:00 am (UTC)
lol, thankyou :P the next shot is going to be hair-themed but then we'll see ;)
nargynargynargynargy on December 15th, 2009 09:50 pm (UTC)
Oh and hey, quiff! I like it, I kinda imagined it differently from your recent photograph though.
