HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [profile] paddies! Looking at your work always gives me a smile, which explains why you dominate my user pics. I hope your birthday has been an excellent one.

As a Stargate fan, I've learned that homage is the sincerest form of flattery, thus the rest of this post. I've been teaching myself more about Photoshop via tutorials and making icons. Here are some of the results.

The usual thing is to ask for comments and credit. I don't much care about credit so long as nobody claims them as their own work. Use as you see fit otherwise. Constructive criticism is welcome since that's the only way I'll improve.

43 Icons Total
- 26 Stargate SG-1
- 4 Stargate SG-1 Actors (Teryl Rothery, Amanda Tapping)
- 4 Stargate Atlantis
- 4 Battlestar Galactica (2003 version)
- 3 Pride & Prejudice (1995 BBC Version)
- 2 Colin Firth

I have a lot more icons but posting this table was a pain because I kept changing my mind and added to the table after it was generated. I doubt I'll be posting this way again. If you're bored, I stashed my icons in my LJ Scrapbook. I had a lot of fun with Teal'c's Tally of Dead, False Gods. He strikes me as a guy who would keep count.

Not everything in my Scrapbook is snag-able as I made many for [personal profile] jalabert only. Those galleries/icons are labeled as, "not shareable," so please respect that. Otherwise, they're fair game.

Comments are treasured. Credit is nice but I don't really care; just don't be a dork and claim you made them, please. I keep my icons in my LJ Scrapbook if you want to browse by character/show.

One final icon, though it is not shareable:
Made for [personal profile] jalabert's brilliant SGA AU slash story, My Fair Liar.
It has a movie poster, too, which was original artwork done by [profile] deani_bean.

There's a joke, "The last thing I learned in college was bridge," and I'm thinking that bridge:college :: selective color:Photoshop. It's just so much damned fun to play with, though getting too wild with it degrades image clarity, making the pic go grainy. I'm fully aware of the frequent abuse of this nifty keen feature; hopefully I've limited the radioactive abominations to just a few. Perhaps some day soon my honeymoon with selective color will be over but until then, consider yourself warned.

My well of icon-fu was dry for the longest time. I'd open Photoshop, crop a pic, and mutilate it into the ugliest damned square possible before throwing my hands up in disgust, closing everything, and wandering off to do something less annoying. Like listen to talk radio. *grin*

I have no idea why a bunch of Jessica Alba promo pics got me back in the groove...but they did. *shrug* They were fun to play around with and a couple even placed in the stillness community where I got the pics. Go me. Anyhow, my need to jump start my lagging icon-fu led me to looking far and wide for inspirational caps -- thus the smörgåsbord of fandoms here.

I loved the penultimate episode of Torchwood. *sigh* It's Captain Jack Harkness who keeps me watching even when the show fails to live up to its potential; John Barrowman has magnetism to spare. This wasn't meant as a, "I ♥ John Barrowman," post, but I now realize that's what it has become.

The loss of my Photoshop hard drive slowed me down but since I had backups of my most often used stuff and a detailed list of resources, I was able to get back the stuff I most needed. I'm still missing my screen cap collection like mad. My older collection of SG-1 caps were stored on a separate HD that didn't fail. Thus? Lots of SG-1 icons and icons made from caps provided by various challenges.

Some of the SG-1 icons have been inspired by conversations with my LJ friends. The Daniel icons probably won't be overly popular this time around but after a discussion over at [personal profile] riverfox's LJ about the way that his glasses frame our perception, pardon the pun, of the character, I wanted to celebrate his glasses. Or lack thereof. Also likely to lack an audience are the Daniel/Sam icons but after [personal profile] moonshayde wrote about getting flames for writing incest because she posted a Daniel/Sam story...well, I started seeing it again in some of my caps so I went with it.

I have some icons I was hoping would be released from challenges by now but I'm not willing to hold these any longer. I want them off my back.

I was hoping to have more new icons in celebration of International Blog Against Racism Week but I've run out of time. I started with pics snagged from the PicSpam in Sage-Theory's LJ, augmented it with a few pics from Eureka and Babylon 5, sprinkled in a tiny bit of CSI: NY at the request of [personal profile] jalabert, and couldn't resist pulling up some of my older icons to finish it off.

Fandoms represented: Andromeda, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Criminal Minds, CSI, CSI: NY, Dark Angel, Doctor Who, Dresden Files, Eureka, Firefly, Heroes, Lost, SG-1, SGA, Torchwood, Witchblade, Sin City, and Will Smith. Yes, Will Smith is a fandom unto himself.

Overall, not my favorite set. I haven't had much icon fu for the past month and I can see it in my lack of textures on a lot of these. However, these Janet Fraiser (SG-1) and Susan Ivanova (Babylon 5) icons have been burning a metaphorical hole in my pocket since right before I hit my slump so I'm posting regardless. EDIT: I didn't mean to imply people should bolster my ego. There are icons within this batch that I like. As a set, though, I'm less pleased than I'd like to be. Too many of these seem like something I could have made 8 months ago; I prefer to feel as if I'm improving.

Small-ish and unvaried batch this time. It has been an uphill struggle to get back into the groove after having gone months without opening Photoshop. Some of these icons have been sitting on my hard drive for 6 months and I want them gone.

One word of caution: Teal'c has some new bling in one of the promo photos. I found it intriguing but I suppose some sensitive souls might consider it to be a spoiler.

There's a new icon contest and it's just for Stargate SG-1: [profile] sg1_lims! Please go and join here:



If you're an icon maker, this is the best way to get honest feedback about what does - and doesn't - work about a specific icon you've made. Haven't heard of LIMS contests before? Read up about it here.

But it isn't just for icon makers! We need voters. LIMS needs people willing to vote -- and willing to say *why* they've voted as they have. The more voters we have, the more icon makers will want to participate. And there's no such thing as too many great SG-1 icons. :)

In order to pimp this in [profile] stargate_icons, I needed to include some graphics so this is lterally an icon dump.

A lot of these icons I made for [profile] sg1_lims. I've pared them down from the endless variations I make as part of a LIMS but this batch has several repeats. Normally I would only choose one to post but part of LIMS is sharing process and the way an icon maker works/chooses. A few of the icons were made for [profile] oneill_icontest. :)

A long, long time ago I raided the interest lists of the tiny number of people following this comm in hopes of finding inspiration for new icons. I'm nothing if not slow so two years later, here is my first foray into stock icons (and a couple random people). If you've been watching this comm since sometime in early 2008, you might see an interest or three of yours in this group. :)
