This journal is now on hiatus. I will be posting all the icons I make from now on flax. The icons in this journal will stay posted for sharing, but I won't update here anymore. Thanks for everything! :)

Which would you rather see next in this journal?

Hellsing OVA 2 icons, or Spirited Away icons?

This post contains 140 icons from the first episode of the new Hellsing OVA series. There are spoilers, but if you've read the manga or seen the tv series, there's nothing too shocking and no really new content. Enjoy!

'Sup guys.

I've been thinking about subjects for making icons of again. What kinds of things have you always wanted icons of but had a hard time finding? I'm not talking big huge uber fandoms that have (more than one of) their own icon communities, but things that are a little more "rare," like, I don't know, Gilligan's Island, or something. Not that I'm ever going to make Gilligan's Island icons.

... I make no promises, of course, but I think the reason I'm usually reluctant to icon things that have been suggested when I've asked in the past is that either I've never seen/read them, or else umpty-jillion other people have already make much nicer icons of the same subject. :)

iowagirl11 suggested I make a set of "Norrington retrospective" icons, and since I feel pretty strongly that Norrington is, in fact, the best PotC character, I was, how you say, down with it. A few other be-wigged characters also made it in, but this set is pretty much all Norrington.

Some of these may be a little spoilery for Dead Man's Chest, but not in a very significant way. Many of the caps and images I used are from http://jack-davenport.net/. A few icons are old, but reworked, or I haven't posted them before. Enjoy!

58 Norrington icons.Collapse )

Comment if you take any and credit undergroundicon or flax in your icon keywords, please.

These icons are from the awesome and hilarious webcomic Thinkin' Lincoln, which I was recently introduced to by megu. In light of that, you don't need to credit me for the icons (although it's appreciated), but you MUST MUST MUST credit http://www.thinkin-lincoln.com/ because if I catch you not crediting the comic, I WILL COME AND BITE OFF YOUR NOSE. THROUGH THE INTERNET.

I never seem to make icons of what I say I will, although I do have a set of Master & Commander icons I am working on.

forty three icons.Collapse )

Hallo! I haven't been posting icons because I feel like most of the icons I've been making for myself aren't really up to the quality I'd want for icons I post publicly, and I usually don't make enough to put into a post, anyway. But it's summer, I still haven't got a job, and consequently I have lots of free time for making icons.

What would you like to see icons of here? I'm pretty well back into Star Wars right now, but I don't know if I feel like making many more icons from it, and of course it's not exactly in vogue right now. So I'm thinking something else. Do any of you have suggestions? No dam' video games, please. :)

Also, I'd like to do some themed stock photography sets, but I'm not sure what theme.

And would anyone be interested in a "the first fifteen people to comment to this post get two random interest icons!" sort of meme? I'm not sure even how active most of the people watching this journal are anymore.

I have no idea how many of you have seen this show (I'm guessing, like, two), but I've been getting the series DVDs from Netflix and wanted to make some icons. Don't worry, the Good Night, And Good Luck. icons will happen eventually ... it's just that I've been having trouble picking which shots I want to icon, which ones work, what style to use, that kind of thing. :)

12 moderately silly Ronin Warriors/Yoroiden Samurai Troopers iconsCollapse )

-Please comment if you take any.
-Give credit to undergroundicon or flax in keywords.
-I like suggestions for things to icon, because I am lazy and uncreative!
-Go rent this show! If you like hilarious/bad/awesome 80s action anime, you won't be disappointed.

Have any of you seen the film Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ... and Spring? If so (or if not, I suppose), would you be interested in icons from it?

What about Good Night, and Good Luck., or the television show Avatar: The Last Airbender?

You know how usually, if you sort of squint at it and twist the right way, your horoscope for the day could kind of almost sort of be right? Mine today was exactly opposite of my life right now! Awesome.

This post contains one hundred twenty matching icons from the film Howl's Moving Castle. I really wanted to make an icon of the toilet "blooming" out of the floor when they move the Castle, but it just wasn't effective without motion and sound. :(

120 icons, so please be patient with the load time!Collapse )

Rules for use:
-Please comment specifying which ones you're taking, if you do.
-Credit either undergroundicon or flax in your icon keywords.
-Hotlinking makes me sad, so please don't do it. :(
-Read the book version of Howl's Moving Castle, by Diana Wynne Jones! :)
