1. Come on, somebody! Having no takers on an icon battle is incredibly embarassing :(

I should probably stop picking such random pictures, because this isn't the first time this has happened... however, you've got to admit they're smokin' even if you don't know who they are

2. I assume you've all heard 'Womanizer' by now. I think it's ridiculous, but simultaneously I'm addicted to it. I can't stop watching the video clip on youtube. :P

3. I've been meaning to mention this for a while now, but there is a petrol station along my bus route called 'Steward Patterson Automotives' or something of that nature. I'm hoping all of the Twilight fans on my flist understand why I posted this seemingly random piece of information. :P


a) Photobucket I made this for topicon's mini challenge this week and I LOVE it! I really shouldn't be showing this to you, because theres a possibility I will be disqualified because of that, but I can't hold in my Bemberg lovin'! I'm crazy about my texture use and balance of light and dark here, which is good because it's pretty much all you can do in a black and white icon :P

b) Photobucket I don't like this and I don't know why. Technically everything is good, it's an amazing picture, the colouring is vibrant and varied, but it's just not working for some reason.

c) Photobucket another icon I'm somewhat disappointed with. The original picture is so striking and this just lacks the punch. And I think there's something weird about the way I've used light splodges to illuminate his face...

5. it was my mums birthday yesterday

6. I have had a disturbingly eventful day today. I don't care to go into details, but I'll give you some random phrases for my benefit that should trigger memories in the future.

-the automated kristine response
-unplanned employee flood
-rye pana di casa
-there is no way you can mop the floor in 6 minutes
-tears for jeers
-those crazy alcoholics again
-an incidental foot massage

7. comment and tell me one thing about your day. Interesting or non-interesting, I want to hear it.

2, I'm actually rather proud of myself for not having heard this song.

4. I love a :) It's very pretty.

5. Do anything interesting for it?

7. We painted my room :) And now I have to spend the night on the couch.

4. thanks :D as mentioned in the post, I'm very proud of it

5. we had dinner with her parents which was really really really ridiculously boring. And when I say that I mean it, I don't think I added enough 'really's.

6. ah yes, the good ol' bedroom makeover. :D what colour did you pick and how comfortable is your couch?

We've just done the undercoat so far. I'm painting my room light grey. I'm still not sure if I'm going to put in a feature wall or not.

My brother was out last night so I slept in his room. Mum had just changed the sheets so it wasn't too bad :P

The icon discussions are back \o/ (I pretty much ignored the rest of this post, apologies lol)

My favourite is actually b, I think it works even better than a) but maybe that's because I like colour. Green and blue are difficult colours to work together (as an art student, I learnt that over a lot of time and it was drummed in by my art teacher to never use it - "blue and green should never be seen"), but I think you combined them perfectly. Arty textures as always are cool. Glowing men are even better ;).

Something about my day? I miss eating dim sum and the weather in the UK sucks.

hmm... that's interesting. I'll keep that in mind, because maybe that's why I'm not crazy about it?

But I don't actually agree with the teaching myself. Just to prove it, I may well do something in blue and green.
It's your opinion obviously, but I do think its a good icon.
