[queen's thief] attolia irene
So I think Channel Mixer has become my new favorite adjustment layer. It can be very touchy, but there is also some neat stuff you can do with it. I just learned about saturating the colors with it (super easy) and so most of the DW icons have at least one of those layers on it and usually several more Color Mixers as well. I still miss my PS "Selective Color," but since I don't have it to rely on anymore, I'm learning new techniques. Yay!

Now that the boring stuff is behind us, are you ready for some icons? Doctor Who from the fifth series (from ep "Vincent and the Doctor" and various ep outtakes) and some Queen's Thief. Been a while since I made anything for that amazing book series, but head on over to this post at sounis for an incredible "comic" by rushstarfire. She graciously granted me permission to use her art to make some icons. :D If you like the original pieces, be sure to head over there or to Deviantart and let her know!

Doctor Who: 31
---"Vincent and the Doctor": 22
---Series 5 Outtakes: 9
Queen's Thief: 31 (art by rushstarfire)
Total: 62

You had the same idea I had. XD

These Thief icons are aweosme. I'm snagging #43 and promise to give proper credit. ^_^

:D I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Great! Thanks.
24th-May-2011 03:19 pm (UTC)
Dude! These are amazing. Really great work. As soon as I get to a computer I'm taking some.
25th-May-2011 07:15 pm (UTC)
They were so much fun to color. Glad you like. :)

At first, I was like "Who is the genius who just iconed my favorite episode with such pretty colors?!" ::FLAIL::

Then I was like: "Let me click on the post."

Then I was like this: "OMG! IT'S MY SISTER!!!!!"

fail me. go you.

Seriously, these are GORGEOUS. SNagging basically the entire set. Also, how YOUNG do Matt and Karen look in #2?
25th-May-2011 07:17 pm (UTC)
They're like babies!

25 and 26 of the DW icons are the most beautiful things in the world. Taking and running. Thanks dear~

You're welcome! ♥

Oww... Pretty colors. Is taking one of Irene. Artistic people (of which one I am not) are awesome!
25th-May-2011 07:21 pm (UTC)
:D

Hey, you're artistic in a writerly way. I saw that you posted your MoW/Gen's Mom fic to your journal so I think I'm gonna have to go reread that later. ♥
25th-May-2011 08:37 pm (UTC)
Yes, I do have the ability to write artistically! And I love art! Just...don't ask me to draw anything. Then again... I did get an A in my art class, though I mostly painted a canvas and stuck stuff on it to make wall hanging arrangements. My teacher said I was very creative, and I was just thinking, "More like compensating for an artistic deficit." XD

Oh, yes. It's been edited, so I finally got it in my journal, with Mira's pretty banner. There is a sequel (Stolen Words: what remains of a lovestory) that has been written, just gotta get it betaed, and two more written fics for the Stolen-verse series that still need editing. I wrote so much over winter break and in between assignments this semester. So I am now faced with a bulk of editing jobs.

This makes me super happy!
25th-May-2011 09:30 pm (UTC)
Makes me happy too. :D Look at all those high-word count fics saved on my hard drive!

I've managed to characterize Gen's Mum in a way that people seem to enjoy, and I've discovered that she's super fun to write; so yes, I've created a series for her and elements of the series that surround her. The best part? Not all of them will be angsty death fics! I'll try to write as much romance and adventure as possible.

Though while writing, I can't seem to get Lauren Graham out of my head. She has an appropriate "up to something" smile.

Hey look! I made it come back. I was looking at the "read comments" buttons/links, and there was one I've never seen before: "1 Suspicious Comment." I kind of laughed and then clicked it, knowing it'd be yours.

I guess I'd rather have LJ marking ~suspicious things than getting spammed all the time and having those attacks, but I just hadn't had any experience with any of the new features yet. XD
26th-May-2011 11:05 pm (UTC)
Yay, you fixed it!

Yup, just call me the "Suspicious Commenter". Mild mannered college student by day, evil cyber-space villain by night. LJ-users beware! XD

Maybe... I shouldn't find that so funny. It's just the name, suspicious comment is suspicious. But, yeah... I will say the non-whitelisted domain screen is cutting back on comment spam. I'm not getting comment spam on my journal or comms these days. Especially the Russia ones, which made more sense after the server attacks. I was starting to wonder why all spammers seemed to speak Russian!
25th-May-2011 09:32 pm (UTC)
Hmm... LJ seems to have screened my reply to this. If you don't get it, just check your comm's privacy settings.
26th-May-2011 03:41 am (UTC)
I don't even see it at all. I saw it in my email, but it's like it doesn't exist. I should be able to see it as the maintainer, right? I'll go check things out.

And Gen's momma would definitely be snarky and all-knowing and just generally awesome. I approve!
26th-May-2011 04:32 am (UTC)
Snarky she would be indeed! Watching Lauren Graham's character in Gilmore Girls really gave my head-cannon the push it needed, as she's always reminded me of Gen's mum. Therefor I can not get her out of my head as I write!

Glad you approve! And have you seen my new fic about Ion?
26th-May-2011 05:58 am (UTC)
I have seen it. It's open in a tab, but I haven't read it yet. Not gonna lie, it may take me a few days. Sometimes I get distracted from fic way easily, but I am looking forward to reading for sure! :D
26th-May-2011 09:12 am (UTC)
Kehee... My little fic sitting and waiting to be read in a tab makes me happy indeed! Enjoy!
26th-May-2011 03:43 am (UTC)
Comment screening was set to anonymous comments only. I switched it to none.

Maybe LJ just ate it?
26th-May-2011 04:25 am (UTC)
No... I can see it, which is an improvement. :D *has had this problem before*

It's because I linked to a non-whitelisted domain. It's a new LJ spamming protection feature.

More info: http://news.livejournal.com/137436.html

You can turn the feature off from privacy settings (if you want). There should be a place for you to manuel unscreen my comment. At least, that's what I was told after "suspicious commenter" almost became my secret code name!
25th-May-2011 05:24 am (UTC)
Pretty! Snagging some of the Doctor Who's; will credit.
25th-May-2011 07:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!
25th-May-2011 09:01 am (UTC)
Great job with the KoA icons! The animated one is the best! My other favorites are 40, 59, 61.
25th-May-2011 07:24 pm (UTC)
Thank you!
25th-May-2011 04:52 pm (UTC)
Your icons are totally awesome. I snagged some DW ones and will credit.
25th-May-2011 07:25 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! :)
25th-May-2011 05:00 pm (UTC)
I seriously freaked out when I saw the lovely Queen's Thief icons. Snagged #43 and #45, will credit.
25th-May-2011 07:26 pm (UTC)
Great! Those were two of my favorite panels (obviously, since I iconned the mess out of them XD).
26th-May-2011 07:19 pm (UTC)
ahhhh! so cool :) 37 is my favorite but I also like how you did 40, 48, 49

The 'judging you so hard'' in 48 made me crack up. haha these are great :)
26th-May-2011 09:11 pm (UTC)
:D

Attolia's expression is just so fierce, it had to be done. Thanks for stopping by! And thanks again for sharing with us. :)
