new years post  
1. Okay so wow, talk about the longest death scene of all time. Good lord RTD, that went on for a good fifteen minutes! Honestly, it was just another one of his episodes full of complete gibberish to add to the pile but I'm so glad we're one step closer to 11/Moffat because after rewatching Coupling recently (and this) I'm more convinced than ever that it's going to be amazing.

2. So New Years was a bit interesting, I got very drunk. Not being able to stand up without assistance, vomit all over the place, grabbing people inappropraitely drunk to be specific. (Not loud though, mind you. And I was aware at the time that I was being obnoxious so I was also unusually curteous :P)

I haven't ever really been like that before and for a while I've wanted to have a not-remembering-anything-going-completely-out-of-control experience and my New Years resolution was to get out more and I'm a believer in the fact that what you're doing at the turn of the new year is what you're going to be doing for the rest of the year so it seemed rather appropriate.

Although I'm somewhat concerned by my inability to remember anything for most of the night. I mean, the lack of memory loss by itself is fine, but I have a few clues that some not-so-awesome stuff happened and it I don't like not knowing what exactly they were. Also unfortunately for me the memory of vomiting is proving very difficult to shake

3. why not check out my favourite icons this year at iconwhoa? There were some amazing ones!

4. I'm about 70% finished on a post with a rundown of all the best things from the noughties that's got a few gifs in it (representing amazing scenes of tv this past decade) so look out for that! But until then, here are a few other ones I've made recently:


This is the last photo I took in 2009 and I'll tell ya what, I couldn't be happier. Lord knows it could be better but I think it's my strongest so far and it's pretty much exactly the kind of photo I want to take. Actually lately I've been putting photos I wish I'd taken into a folder and browsing it in my spare time and I think the brilliance of those photos is rubbing off on me! Check out these three LotS caps (all in that magical folder) and look at how weirdly similar style-wise they are to what I took - completely unintentional!

Anyway, I'm really glad to have ended the year on a high. And it has been a fantastic year (well, for me at least. And from the sounds of things I'm the only one who liked it :P) I've been focusing a lot more on graphics and I feel like I've reached a whole other level because of that. Speaking of which, another resolution of mine is to continue doing the a graphic per day thing because I think that's really helped me, I can't recommend doing it enough!

Hahaha I've always made a point of not getting drunk enough to not remember - someday i'd like to though. But your New Years sounds extremely fun (and a tad unpleasant with the vomiting *hugs*)

Eeeeep! I'm on your list! a;sldfj You have no idea how happy/shocked that makes me! What a great idea for a comm as well, I had to join.

Your gifs are gorgeous and Oh Wesley, Oh Willow! Their faces are breaking my heart. And your final picture is amazing. The mood and atmosphere is just stunning.

ps. I for one am especially glad I met you in 2009 ;)

haha, yeah it was. I think next time I'm going to aim for somewhere between minor memory loss and no vomiting, but we'll see how that goes ;)

oh, absolutely! I love the shapes that icon makes and purples are most definitely your strong point :D

:D thankyou! I'm glad I met you, too

now, just wondering but was it obvious that you could click on the photo to get the larger size? I'm thinking of presenting my photos like this from now on but I need to know whether I should warn people they can get a larger version if they want.

Yeah, well you can kinda see the slight border around the picture letting you know it's clickable. But I suppose the first couple times you post new pictures it couldn't hurt to give people a heads up, just until they get used to it.

As much as I love coupling, I really hope DW won't become "Coupling in space"! ;) I've rewatched all of it recently as well (and bought the DVDs with the plan to cap them...someday) and fell completely in love with Sally/Patrick again ♥ Also: A Sally laughing gif!

Speaking of the gifs, I think some of these represent the best of your style of coloring: the 3rd one (with Will), the Adelle one, the Willow one and the Master one. Looking forward to the gifs of "amazing scenes of tv"!

I think I pretty much say this everytime you post photographs, but AH GORGEOUS.

haha, yeah, that would be a bit weird, but I think the comedy:drama ratio has slipped WAR too far towards drama since season 1, and we know Moffat knows his way around a joke so I'm predicting that'll work itself out ;)
I know, I know! Too amazing! I keep on trying to pick a favourite character, but they're all so much fun!

thankyou! The more I make them the more I pick up little tricks to make the colouring work for the whole sequence of frames. My intent is to have something icon-worthy for every single frame :D

:D thankyou!

5. oh, I just ADORE that picture! The colours are so different, and yet she still looks natural and has that rose tint over her cheeks eyes and lips which make her look so delicate :) You've managed to capture her best angle/expression without any pose too clichéd. I love the texture to her skin - slightly grainy but still perfectly smooth. Well done!

thank you so much! And it's good to hear specifics about what you like about the picture, so thankyou :D

This is what happens when I'm a bad internet-er. I miss THIS.

2. So you had a good night then? :P I have absolutely no idea what happened on NYE. I remember going to the beach with the guys we're staying next door to, and I remember waking up the next morning.

I have a few clues that some not-so-awesome stuff happened and it I don't like not knowing what exactly they were.
That's the worst. ugh.

4. GIFS GIFS GIFS. That Rachel/Mercedes/Finn one is killing me. And the Liz/Jenna one LOL!

5. That photo is great. I'm definitely seeing the LoTS influence that you've been talking about - that's by no means a bad thing though! My favorite bit - the slight highlights around her cheek. Fan-tas-tic.

Happy new year!

2. I think so. However the night actually went down it was a mission achieved; I did the drunk thing properly for once.

4. :D trust me, these won't be the last gifs you see from me

5. thankyou! :D And on her eyelids! did you notice her eyelids? I keep on discovering more and more things to love about this photo
