Iconage

I've thrown together a webpage for all the LJ icons I've created over the past few months: URL is here. When I say 'thrown together' I do mean it's really, really basic... my ISP sent round a circular email reminding customers that it was against their terms of service to use webspace as a filedump, for storage of files that aren't actually needed for your websites. Hence the rapid creation of a webpage to display the icons. :) 

One thing I was struck by is how out of proportion the quantities of icons I've done really are. There are plenty of Buffy and Willow, which is to be expected. But despite the fact that Faith is one of my favourite characters, I only had one single solitary icon of her - and to make matters worse, it was a picture of her from 'Who Are You' when she's being played by Smidge! (Although to compensate, one of my Buffy icons is Buffy as played by Eliza, so she's not entirely unrepresented). There's also a lot of Buffy/Willow icons, but they were done as a fun way to make a point rather than because I'm a rabid B/W 'shipper...

Anyway, I decided I should rectify my lack of Faith:


1  2  3  4  5  6

For those interested in technicalities, for #1 I played with the contrast and used the sharpening tool on the heart Faith's drawn so it would stand out more clearly. 2-4 are obviously from the S8 comic preview cover, giving a choice of a close-up of her face, a long view showing the graffitti, or the middle view which was purely gratuitous lechery on my part. :)  #5 is from 'Bad Girls', and used Photoshop's Autolevels to brighten it up and make it clearer. And both the image and the quote in #5 are from Revelations.


Also, as a charter member of the People Who Don't Hate Kennedy Club, I was miffed to discover I had no icons of her either, until now. There's also now one of Vi.

7  8  9  10

#7 and #8 are both from 'Showtime'. #9 and #10 are actually publicity shots of Iyari Limon and Felicia Day, rather than caps from the shows - some of you may recognise the pictures from the Buffy 10th Anniversary wallpaper I did a while ago.

As usual, feel free to use or distribute, with credit. Comments and feedback gratefully accepted. Commissions and requests considered.
I've also added the icons page to my links list.  *points* ->

See my most recent post!

Also, would you like to be Treasurer?

Only if there are very large sums of money involved and the books are going to be audited very infrequently.

Nice Vi one. Still not sure on the Faith S8 ones. And good to see some Kennedy appreciation.

Thanks - I'm impressed by that cover myself (still waiting to see what the internal artwork will look like, though).

Nice ones. I really like the two Faith icons from "Bad Girls"... Eliza's got that "about to eat the cookie dough canary" grin down pat.

Weird seeing Kennedy in short hair and Vi in long, but they don't exactly hurt to look at either... :-)

about to eat the cookie dough
I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, by such an implication! :)

Thanks!
