2. Hello to whenitsquiet who just friended me. Go check out her icons, because they're AWESOME. The way she uses light splodges makes everything so smooth and silky :D
I can't believe between the time that it takes me to post, somebody new has friended me. It's so awesome and confusing. :D
a) for my battle with mouthfullofdust. I like it. I loved it when I was making it, but I've lost the love. Something seems a bit off with the colouring and I can't pinpoint it.
b) As stated previously, I love Elina and I need an icon of her. The background is just WAY too crazy, though.
c) nice textures, but too boring.
d) my attempt to un-boring 'c'. Still didn't work :(
e) "maybe an orange background will look good?" NO!
f) "maybe I need to think outside of the box and do something crazier" no... to crazy, get back inside that box.
g) okay, now that's too inside the box.
h) close, but no cigar.
i) I saw the most recent challenge at icon_crack and knew immediately what to do. I love this icon a lot, both Elina and her background look incredible.
j) I saw the most recent challenge at iconplay and suddenly got inspired to have another crack at this. So now I have two Elina icons I love, but I can't decide which I prefer.
k) Adrienne looks amazing in this shot, so it was very easy to icon. I like my balance of colours.
l) Joanie <3 I could've sworn this looks better on the other computer. My colouring looks boring on this one.
m) see comment for 'l'
n) oh nose, Tyra looks terrible here! Too much blue! I was trying to go for something subtler.
o) I think this icon is a bit of fun, but I don't like what I did to it (which was practically nothing)
p) I wanted a new Angel icon, but this didn't turn out well at all. It gives me a whole new respect for drankmywar's icon using the same cap.
q) this was supposed to be moodier and more fun, but it doesn't bother me that it isn't. I wasn't too desperate to have another Doctor Who icon.
r) CHUCK IS FANTASTIC! Go off and watch it right now! I keep on forgetting how good it is. I think I'd put it almost on par with Buffy and Angel. Also, I love this icon. my colouring is awesome, I love the framing and Matthew Bomer looks hot :D
s) I didn't like this at all until I added the orange background and now I love it. It reminds me of one of meivocis's old icons. The colouring is just so crazy :D
t) I love this photo of her, but... ouch, poor Smellrose. My colouring stinks to high heaven.
u) "maybe I should use exclusion layers like I did with the Elina icon?" no...
v) "maybe I should try doing something moodier>" no...
w) Here I'm trying to work with the exclusion layers again and I think it kind of works, but the reds are way too much.
x) and this is the point where I give up on making a good icon with this photo. It can't be done, I tell you!
y) WEIR! <3 I love her and this turned out exactly as I hoped it would :D
z) I'm not sure why I made this, because I was prefectly content with 'y', but I really like it. I'm not sure which I like more, though so now I have a predicament on my hands... :(
4. This weird thing has been happening lately, like everything that's going on now has happened before. It's like somebody has been scripting my life, for my whole life and they've finally run out of new story ideas, so they're just stealing ideas from previous seasons.
Like, for example, I had this medical thing a while back. It's a bit complex, incredibly embarassing and also very boring so I won't tell you anything about it, but I had to go into hospital about a year ago because of it. And... it's popped up again. Another example is that I used to talk to somebody a while back and now they've popped back into my life again. Another is that I'm watching old episodes of Gossip Girl and Chuck, but that's much less coincidental, because I'm psyching myself up for their new seasons.
There are other things, but anyway, I just figured I'd explain why I was 'nostalgic' last post.
5. I want someone to have a try at imitating my style for the challenge at icon_crack, but I don't think I'm popular enough for that yet :( I'm shocked more people haven't done prettybutt
6. Comment and tell me one non-interesting thing about your day today.
harbourlight did this in her most recent post, and I'm stealing this from her. I intend to ask you all to tell me tedious things about your days every post from now on :D
