Super-Über-Massive Icon Post

I got really excited yesterday about doing those Hindu icons, so today (so I don't have to clean my room) I'll post all of my icons. Old and new.

And yes I am aware that some of them are pretty crappy. But there are also a few gems in there that I'd like to share with the world.

I'm sorry these aren't behind an lj cut. I've tried but LJ hates me and I suck at html :(

158 icons

107 X-Men (Movies and comic)
7 Harry Potter
21 Various other movies (Narnia, Troy, King Arthur, Wizard of Oz, A Walk to Remember)
11 Various actors (James Franco, James Marsden, Rupert Grint, Jude Law, Adam Brody, Cast of X-Men)
3 Disney
5 Other comics (Spider-man, Batman, Captain America, Iron Man)
4 Misc (Flowers, Michael Knudsen, One Tree Hill, Sam Winchester)

Thanks, I'm glad you like them :)

Some of them are several years old and from the time I only had Paint Shop Pro 7 (a demo at that).
Since I got photoshop and started 'competing' in iconchallenges I have gotten better at iconing :)

Great icons! I'd like to use 105 and will credit. Are my eyes going or are some icons showing up over some of the other icons? I'm having trouble seeing some of them when there's another icon partially over it.

Yes?

Well then... YOU'RE ICONS ARE UN-FRICKIN' BELIEVABLE!

I want to make them into wallpaper and paste it on my ceiling!

You are a wizard!

I especially love #'s 50, 80 and 98 (X-Men) and # 7 (Harry Potter) and I don't even like Harry Potter, that's how good you are!

Fantastic!

Hey.

I was looking for a good Scott/Jean icon, and all I could think of was to come here to your 'Super-Über-Massive Icon Post' and find one. Maybe, erm, you could pimp a Jott icon to me? Please?

I'm snagging #053, #055, #058. Thanks, will credit you if I use them.

I would love to make you some icons!

Any special requests? Any pictures or text you would like to have on it?
uranus_ge
May. 15th, 2008 03:49 am (UTC)
Hey.

Thanks for the speedy reply hun.

Aww I feel so honored *blushes*

You should, because I have NEVER seen anyone post up so many icons for multifandoms...And I've seen my share of icons posts, so believe you me *winks*

I would love to make you some icons!

*sniffs* No one's made me icons before...I know, isn't that sad?

Yes, yes, of course I would love you to make some!! =D

Any special requests? Any pictures or text you would like to have on it?

I want a small black-and-white picture of Jean, when she was alive and happy. A teeny-weeny one, in one corner of the icon(s).

Erm, you could freely choose from any of the three movies. A bit of angst, but not too much. Scott can be too emo at times. I'm gonna go with classic poems because we don't need to go contemporary.

I'll give you a few options:

-- "Why Is The Rose So Pale" by Heinrich Heine
-- "Who Ever Felt as I" by Walter Savage Landor

And this is a line from "Proud of my Broken Heart" by Emily Dickinson:
-- I did not feel till thee

I hope that wasn't too angsty...! *chews lips*

I also want one icon to be all sunshine and rainbows, because, well the two of them had joyful times, too. Make the colouring lively, but not too colourful or gaudy. I don't like too much contrast, and I LOVE it when their faces are more 'real'.

I'm open to suggestions from you, of course. I'm sure you have ideas of your own about Scott/Jean...*nudges gently, smiles* Show me some of your bases!

I hope to hear from you! ♥

Thanks *hugs*

~Eva

I was hoping that my ideas weren't too angsty. I'm relieved to hear that you approve of them =)

Can you show me bases, too? Please?

I've created a very special Photobucket album for you where I have put my bases.

Here: http://s151.photobucket.com/albums/s122/LittleSarahLost/Icons/for%20uranus_ge/

The image is not from any movies, but I had some trouble finding a good image of her smiling that I could use...

Let me know what you think :)

Hey Sarah!

Terribly sorry for the late reply, but college classes just don't quit.

I looked the icons over, and here’s what I think of them:

1) I LOVE this icon, and that the text is by you! I like how the black-and-white stands out against the tender love scene placed in between. And the graceful, flowing floral motif! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE *squishes you* I’m yoinkin’ this one, and I will credit you if I use it. Share this with everyone else...! It would be selfish of us to keep this purdy to ourselves *winks* Don’t use green next time, though, it doesn’t flatter the skin tone of both of them. I prefer red. Yeah, like number 35.

2) Well, this one. What can I say but that I am a slut for bases, particularly Scott bases. He’s all sharp, sharp cheekbones and ruby-quartz eyeglasses. And those full lips…*blows strawberry, fans herself, giggles like a schoolgirl*

Thanks for including this one!

3) . . . . . *grins*

4) Mmm, *cocks head* his body seems a bit…skew-whiff. But I like the brightness + contrast of this icon, notwithstanding. And the X – ScottistheoneandonlyX-Menleader!

5 – 10) I really, really like these icons, especially number 5, which has text taken from "Who Ever Felt as I" by Walter Savage Landor, but I can’t bring myself to warm up to the colouring, patterns, etc. Bit too cheerful. When I pictured that scene as an icon, I imagined that it would be black and white, to represent how Scott’s life is now that Jean is gone. No light left in it to reflect any kind of colour.

I apologise if I’m being too forthright, but I just wanted to tell you what I thought of the icons you lovingly made for me.

11) A base! A base! *jumps up and down* I’m snaggin’ this one =D

–- Number 13 comes quite close to how I conceived of this heartbreaking scene in my head. A bit leeched of colour. –-

15) Oooh, I like this one. Seems a bit…macabre, because when I first saw that scene in “X1”, I thought that Jean was ‘killing’ herself, taking one for the team. If she had held out any longer, she might have suicided. It’s the black, it gives me that kind of impression.

16) The colouring of this icon is unique out of the whole lot, not my type, but distinctive nonetheless. Is that a book bind? Another near-disastrous event marking a page of their lives…The first near-disastrous event was how Prof. X was injured in Cerebro in X1.

17, 18, 20 & 23) I get this gothic, dark feeling from these icons, although they remain mostly unadorned. It’s definitely the black.

–- Number 19 is sweet, him showing his strong concern for her. There are no cliché texts on this icon, and that’s how I like them. Action speaks louder than words. -–

(Lj hates me, so this is continued below...*points*)

21) This icon is like a combination of a film negative and a sepia-tinted old photograph. Interesting colouring, although I’m not a big fan of such colouring. Funnily enough, it reminds me of my favourite hot drink: tea!

– Number 22 is WON. DER. FUL! I can imagine those words flashing through Scott’s mind, when Jean takes some time to recover her voice. I mean, obviously not in the literal sense, but these words would have been the ‘English Literature’ version of Scott’s panicked thoughts. After all, Jean did look a bit pasty… –

25) This icon would have been perfect had it not been for the book bind. Can you please, please, please show me a version without the book bind?

26) The colouring’s reminiscent of number 21.

27) Looks a bit like a base, except for the contrast + brightness. Looks like they’re joined at the hip soul.

28) Oh I like this one! I like its fuzziness, reminds me of the hustling they had to do towards the end of X2, like they’re actually in motion. I like to make screencaps like that sometimes, where the characters are moving. It catches the urgency of the moment.

–- I don’t like number 29 and 30 because of the tone. I don’t like that green. It reminds me of how ugly the Phoenix is. I don’t mind number 31, although it looks a bit lifeless. Heh, I like the little black hearts! Reminds me of how star-crossed these lovers are. –-

33) You win with this icon!! I like the colouring, the text, the tone, the X3 scene, the eye contact…Did I mention the text? *LOVES* And the artistic effect, the red and yellow sparks(?) slipping past Scott’s fingers, absolutely breathtaking! The text completes the icon.

34) I prefer number 33.

36 – 41) Thank you for remembering this request *squeals* I like number 38, as simple and unfussy as it is. Oh please don’t put black over Famke’s head, it looks like a death pall hanging over her.

41, 41, 41! I like the combination of colour and black-and-white. Not too cheerful, just the right amount of vibrancy. Perfect, perfect! The rose is my favourite flower, how ever did you guess? *laughs* =) Uh-oh, is that a camellia? No matter *waves hand* It's still absolutely beautiful...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for making these icons. And so many! *hugs, kisses* More, please? I’m madly in love with the cuteness that is Rogue (Marie d’Ancanto), so, ahem…*coughs, nudges, pokes*

I’ll try to repay you with a fic, but it’s not a Scott/Jean fic, so you’ve been forewarned…

Thank you, again!! *squishes you into tiny pieces*

Hi! Thanks for the lovely and useful critique and praise :)

I don't see the green that you sometimes mention, but it could just be a difference in screen settings.

And that bookbind you mention in the Cerebro scene is not a bookbind, but one of those Cerebro cable thingies that are connecting the 'hat' to the rest of Cerebro. I tried to 'crop' it away with those black areas, but you wanted bases, so...

I am working on a b/w icon of Scott in the bedroom :)

I really enjoyed doing these, and I will look into doing some Rogue icons. And I will post the icons here soon :)

Hey.

Thanks for the lovely and useful critique and praise :)

You’re most welcome *g* I’ve always believed that it’s important for an icon-maker/fanfic writer/vidder to get feedback/response from those who evaluate their lovingly-made work.

It’s something like, compensation for their endeavours. And there’s no better pick-me-up than feedback, hee =)

I don't see the green that you sometimes mention, but it could just be a difference in screen settings.

Oh, I don’t think it’s my screen settings.

Maybe I used the wrong term to describe it. I think what I meant to say is that the icons had this yellowish tinge to it, while others had a reddish one. A tint, you might say. The colouring isn’t strong, but it’s noticeable.

What I was trying to say is that I prefer the reddish tone/tinge/tint, if you’re going to use it for your icons. Personally, I like their (Scott and Jean’s) natural skin-tone better…but for an icon-maker such as yourself, you’d be wondering where’s the trick in that, right? Hehe, yeah… *nods to herself*

And that bookbind you mention in the Cerebro scene is not a bookbind, but one of those Cerebro cable thingies that are connecting the 'hat' to the rest of Cerebro.

OMG, I’m so asinine.

$%^&**(((*(&^%$!!

*sighs explosively, slaps forehead* Damn, I must have sounded so comical when I said that that was a book bind. Jezuz…*hides under a rock*

I tried to 'crop' it away with those black areas, but you wanted bases, so...

Yeah, I did, and thank you for sticking to my requests, in the end. Jott 6,6 cop is so pretty. You managed to crop the ‘cable thingy’ out completely, and the Scott/Jean moment is made more perfect =)

Okay, okay, I admit, I must be more specific about what I want, and be more careful about what I request, too. When I asked for bases, I thought they were the same as asking for textless icons. Is it—Does it mean the same thing?

Yeah, I’m still kinda new to icons. I’ve been an Lj-user for a good while now, but it’s only recently that I’ve begun to join in in the ‘icon frenzy’. I never cared much for icons before.

I am working on a b/w icon of Scott in the bedroom :)

I saw them on your new icon post, and I LOVED them! So simple…yet heart breaking. He looked so alone in the vastness of their bedroom. Almost lost, like he’s lost he’s grasp on the .

Oh, and thank you for not beating me over the head with the angst by going in for a close-up of Scott weeping, those icons you recently posted were angsty enough for me *sighs happily*

You could have easily given Scott 1,61 c – Scott 1 copy a greyscale or b/w makeover, but you didn’t. You made new icons for this special purpose. Thank you!

I really enjoyed doing these

And I enjoy giving you my feedback about them, critiquing and appraising them. Giving my comments about icons is new to me, but I think I’m warming up to it =)

I will look into doing some Rogue icons. I will post the icons here soon :)

*squees* Yes, I’m 3 years old, don’t you know?

Whee! *punches the air*

I can’t wait for them!

I don’t know when I began to like Rogue, but I do know that I didn’t like what Brett Ratner did to Rogue in “X3”. He turned her into the jealous, possessive, PMS-ing girlfriend, and I couldn’t stomach her all of a sudden.

In the two previous movies, she seemed to be growing stronger emotionally and psychologically, but “X3” degenerates her. A plus point for X3!Rogue is that she makes her own move and creates her own fate: She decides what’s best for herself, and ‘cures’ herself.

Oh, and even though we see Rogue having a deep bond with Logan and Bobby, I would prefer if you didn’t make an icon of her with either one of them. I’ve always seen her as a loner. Just because she’s absorbed a myriad of people, doesn’t mean she’s got company.

I was wondering if you could make this icon: “Rogue, alone with the voices in her head.” Do you think you could design an icon like that for me? Please? I would love you fohevah. Oh, and as usual, I’d like it to be textless.

But if you have time, you could insert this text into the icon: “Beauty in the breakdown”. It’s a line from “Let Go” by Frou Frou. That which doesn't destroy her makes her stronger. I don’t now if my interpretation of that line means any sense, but…there you have it *shrugs*

THANK YOU, in advance *cuddles*

I hope to hear from you soon ♥

Hey hun.

I'm terribly sorry for the double post, but it just suddenly occured to me that I forgot to ask you something. It was that 'iCedric' icon that jogged my fuzzy, unreliable memory.

I've been hunting for 'iCyclops' icons the whole length of Lj, and I still haven't found one that I can go bonkers over. The ones that Lj-users have come forward with have not tickled my fancy. I know...*sulks* I'm so hard to please.

I was wondering if you know of one, of if you could help me find one, or if--Could you help me, please?

It would be Christmas if you did.

Thanks!! *huggles*
