Made more icons
Just animating together ones I'd made already.
I like this one - buried in bunnies!
Zatanna comics had many bunnies in.
I also put together some unrelated panels to make a catch the bunny in the hat icon.
I like it cause she's got grrr face and is all serious and then - bunny!


... see, this is the kind of productive time use I should really do more of
;-)

animated icon! For when I can't decide which fandom to show today.

I like the clock wipe to make a Time Lord symbol.

animation shop has a bazillion effects I've never played with.
It would be easier to play with if it didn't keep getting stuck. I'm sure it used to work. Meh.

Next: Drowning in bunnies icons.
I must rediscover the source of the bunny tsunami I has pictures of.
I know the Zatanna cover with the bunnies, that's a good one, but the big wave I lost there where.


I also rationalised my icons a bit, so now I has 35/39. When I'd made two versions I decided on one of them and gave their keywords to the other. I think that'll mean everything still shows up a more or less relevant icon.

... in my head, this is a much quicker way of saying all that stuff that got metafandomed the other day. specific + structure = different thingies depending on where you're standing.

... I decided I needed an icon for this.

Only I'm not sure I got the right image or, er, the right quote.

Also I'd feel weird wearing Xander. Or an eye-patch-con. Don't know why.
Is like I can't wear a Willow even when I'm feeling all studious. Just isn't me.

... not that Jack or Methos or Richie or Giles or Ethan or Andrew or Oz = me, just... er, I don't know, I'll go away again.

Icons under the cut play with the BIG OMG WOAH SURPRISE moment in the first episode of Torchwood
also there are manips, and references to other fandoms (Highlander, Buffy, X-men)

I actually made and even uploaded a ton more of these - some are only in the LJ scrapbook thingy now.
I decided that either the differences were too small to notice or they just didn't look good.
Not that I'm ever sure any of these look good, but.

I'm not entirely happy with the one I made just for me. I'll probably tweak that later.

What I did notice is the Watcher symbol looks a bit like the Torchwood T when you change the scale
and you can make the watcher W from the hex patterns in the T
so I may fiddle with mixing them together later.

First I need to eat.

And post the fic I nearly forgot about.

So, I went to bed early.

Neighbour people decided that was the perfect time to start something with hammers.

I unwent to bed.


Made icons instead.

Turns out Oz only ever turned up for class in the first episode of season 4, and there he's really fuzzy in the background next to Willow. He is in the dream in Restless, but not looking particularly studious, because whispering to Tara. They look snuggly. I get interesting bunnies. But it doesn't look much like college.

So, I found Oz+paper.
This is somewhat flawed as a college study picture because I think he's actually reading that note the vampires left saying Buffy quit college. But he looks all concerned and serious. So I figured this would do.

It needs a caption of some sort. He's obviously saying something. It could even be funny.

I can't think of anything right now.

Caption competition?
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Do you ever sit down to check your email and end up only remembering to eat 37 icons later?

No?

Just me then.

Lots and lots more icons, once again from Buffyverse comics. I've not made a note of which issues I grabbed from.


1.
Spike vs Dracula
this is ghost Spike. It might not make sense without knowing that.

2. 3. 4.
Spike and cigarette, as seen from above. They zoom in just a teensy.

5. 6. 7.
8. 9. 10. 11.
Giles in a blankey, just woke up
plus amusing captions.
The hand sign looked to me like the I Love You Symbol, or the metal horns.

Next, though it should be first, sleepy Giles.

15. 16. 17.
18. 19. 20. 21.
22. 23. 24. 25.
26. This one went a bit wide in the resize. Think it still works... mostly.
27. 28.

Now lots of Willow and Tara :-)
29. 30. 31. 32. 33.
34. 35. 36. 37.


See I really need to stop doing these now. Just because there's hundreds of comics and all could make icons does not mean I personally need to icon hundreds of comics.
*sigh*

Icons shareable with credit.


1. 2.
A couple of icons of a book from the front of... one of the Tales comics.

3. 4.
Buffy leaping into the shiny.
Yes, I know they're almost identical.

5.
Edward, born Elizabeth, the Slayer
I spent ages trying to get it readable and pretty. I'm not sure I managed either.
It says "One Girl".

6.
magic hands, or, a bad thing casting a spell. pretty shiny.

7. 8. 9. 10.
Giles :-)
The comics draw him rather strange. These were the best I could find.
I like the sleepy Watcher. I think I might use that.

11.
Illyria, from... Old Friends, I think.
I like the words, and the goo on her hand. The combinations amuse me.

12. 13. 14. 15.
Spike, at least some of them from Old Friends again.
Some of these are probably Spike's evil twin.

16. 17. 18. 19. 20.
21. 22. 23. 24.
Wesley, I think all from the Angel Spotlight.

25.
Willow, sort of. Did I mention the art is frequently weird?

26. 27.
Willow & Tara
cute!

I've a bit lost track of individual issues, but all these are from assorted Buffyverse comics.

1.
Spike: Old Times

2. 3.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Tales of the Slayers 01
Buffy and crossbow (and goggles, from chem lab)

4.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Tales of the Slayers Graphic Novel
First Slayer

5.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Tales of the Slayers Graphic Novel
I think this is meant to be Nikki Wood, 70s Slayer, mother of Robin Wood

6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
Spike & Dru
from the Spike & Dru comics

11. 12.
These are from the Oz comics, when he is about to teleport.
The one that is just writing really needs a border or something.
I haven't any icons of Oz, because I didn't think he looked right.

13. 14. 15. 16. 17.
Angel Spotlight: Illyria
nice art, icons quite well.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)


Made an icon from Spike: Old Times

The art in that didn't suck, but it is a bit bizarre. The hair has so much more detail than everything else the characters basically look like cartoons wearing wigs.

Didn't 100% like the story, but didn't hate it much either.



I looked through the Buffy: Origins comic for icons, but there weren't any Buffy pics that I would look at and think 'yup, that is Buffy, and only Buffy, for certain'
And yes I know comics aren't like photos, just...
*shrugs*
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Seven Soldiers issue 0, which I was not previously aware existed until I looked the series up on wiki to find out when the last one will exist, has a lot of art work in a style I don't quite like. But I got some icons out of it.

1. 2.
Wig belonging to Gimmix. I don't know why I like the image, I just do.

3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
I think this one is called The Whip. She spends the issue wondering what the line is between Superhero and fetishist. Then she dies. Pity really.
That first hand probably needs some text on it.
All I can think of is 'talk to the hand'.

8. 9.
Vigilante talks to The Whip, I think.
To be honest, I'd have to go back and double check all the names. They're deliberately obscure.

Now for something completely different:
Justice League Unlimited.
They had some Doctor Fate in this week, and I liked a few of the images.


10. 11. 12. 13. 14.


Text is as in the original panels, just resized and moved a bit.
Also it lost the S on the end of superheroes. I should probably have fixed that.


I might make more comics icons, but there don't seem to be much call for them.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Manymany icons under the cuts
66 in fact.
Mostly from the Seven Soldiers minis.

Speech balloons have been erased or resized seperately or rearranged, but not made to say something different. Speech not in a balloon I put there, but I took it out of a speech bubble.

Bulleteer Read more... )

Bunnies, Zatanna related Read more... )

Zatanna, and sometimes Misty the fairy princess too, who has a magic die Read more... )

These are from Frankenstein, but I like the Bride much better.
There is also an undead bunny getting blown away.
Read more... )

Last three, somewhat random, from the Guardian, Bulleteer, and Shining Knight: Read more... )

And two icons that were not from Seven Soldiers.

Read more... )


All done.
Hope someone likes them.

Shareable with credit, just don't use any icon that has my Be on it (these don't, unless I uploaded the wrong ones).



There has to be a comics icon community, yes? Yet find it I cannot. I found a Dawson's Creek icon community, but not DC comics.
I need sleep. I'll go look again later.

I'm also getting guilt attacks again. Stolen art! Woe!
... Stolen comics ought to be woe as well, yet I quite happily torrent them. I'll be buying Seven Soldiers later, when it all comes out in booklikes.
This is advertising, okays? Go buy the cool comics if you like the art. *nods*

Finished another icon
involved much fiddling to relocate the speech bubble and get rid of the random neck bolt that ended up in frame when I kept all her collar.

Is it readable?

It says "Excuse me. I need to access the net."

She's plugging her little computer into her forehead. I'm pretty sure that isn't so obvious at this size. But it was funny.

She's kind of generally cool. Extra arms, huge great red coat, corset, generally a look that made me immediately start trying to figure where I could buy the parts for a costume. Even though she is tall and thin and I am... not.


I've done so much fiddling with graphics today. Tomorrow I hope to be back to being creative with words. Writing would be rather more useful.

I've been looking through Seven Soldiers comics looking for things to icon.
First thing I made is this hand.
I cut away the background and erased the letter G from her arm.
There was some coolness with typewriter parts that I want to put back in, but it did not resize pretty, so I'll have to play with it.
And the letters Y and G are not what I want on a me icon anyways.

I also grabbed some of the ones with bunnies. So there will be plot bunny icons. If I fiddle with them enough.

From Bulleteer and the Guardian one I got maybe one scan each. Shining Knight didn't resize well, too detailed, and I've only got one left that I might try to icon. But Zatanna? Every other page.

Yes the heavily goth chick in the fishnet body suit is apparently someone I want to have as a me picture. Surprise.

Actually, I find me thinking of the apprentice kid as more me like. Also goth, but younger, and with red and black striped tights instead of the nets. She turns out to be a fairy princess.

Cool.

I'm reading Batman: Chalice
which has some pretty pictures

I don't know why, but this one particularly grabbed me and said it had to be an icon.

Its Batman being pulled underwater to be drowned, in grey dark waters under a full moon.

Or, Batman wavey! Wave at Batman!

... Nope, not really cheerful...

I just like it. So I made it be the right size.

Its kind of creepy.

:-)


... Now I'm getting Guilt because somebody drew this and it has copyright and stuff. Hmmm.




I think some of the pages in the download are in the wrong order :-/
Hard to complain though. Due to the whole 'stealing' thing.



... Talia gets to be all kinds of cool when she arrives. Lovely pose with gun moment.
"Father. My Love." (talking to Batman) "I will not hesitate to kill you both to stop this childishness."
:-)


The End??? Huh? So, what, 100 pages of fight scene and he gives it to Superman?
How does that make sense? Superman is hugely vulnerable to magic. Giving him a magical artefact is stupid. Captain Marvel, maybe, he could stash it in the rock or something, but Superman? Dumb.

Mind you, none of the dudes fighting about it in this were magic.


That was a big waste of time as a comic. Its like someone thought "Wouldn't it be cool if the Dark Knight was a grail knight" and then ran out of bunny.

But the art is kind of distinctive pretty.

These didn't come out quite the way I wanted yet
and saving them as jpgs completely messed up the colors, so I had to go back and redo them as gifs
and now I'm sort of looking at them sideways and thinking someones probably done it better already.

Anyways. Icons.

I have a t-shirt has this on the front as 4 lines of text, order descending to chaos, but I took the jpg and cut the lines up and animated them. Now it dances. :-D

Shareable, especially since I nicked the original graphic and can't remember where from. I mean I know is from my t-shirt, but I bought it... somewhere...

Okay, I was digging through some old folders, looking at art I did years back, and I found these. I made them for a funny for Chronicles 99. I'm sure they had context, if only in my head. But now they're just kind of sitting here. So I just spent the last bit of a while turning them into icons.

So, I present to you

The 4 1/2 HorseHugs!

... (sorry) ...

Read more... )

That's 5 bits of animated semi cuteness in the cut.
I have the frames as seperate icons, if anyone wants them.
... yeah, not so likely ...



Hugs are these cute little model thingies that you can buy and send to people. There are angel hugs and regular hugs. The dead Horsemen obviously get to be angel hugs. Richie is pinned back together, so he isn't an angel. Methos doesn't need pins.

See, it was funny in my head...
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)


started with the pic from [livejournal.com profile] ripping_icons Challenge 15

but I don't know as it would be useful to put them in, because Giles hand is unlikely to get votes, yesno?

Anyways, I like the last one. I go put it in my userpics now.


also anything in sufficiently context free closeup starts to look Very Strange.


had a bright idea:



book = watcher weapon

I modified the cover image for the In Nomine RPG





those up there shareable

so far I can decide on neither the word or the font, and my attempts at setting the word on fire need more fiddling to make them work.

I might well just put another 'Be' on it. That works too.
... 'Be inspiration' works a different way, also interesting... hmmm...
... and 'Be MUSE' is very me...

I mean I have like electrify and lightning effects that I paid money for, and what do I use them for? nada.
Just about anything with lightning on it becomes more Highlander-y.

Anyone with a picture they want bzapped, that would be kind of fun.
Like, you show me an icon, I electrocute it...
