6 Outlander icons @ 09:05 pm


I've made some Outlander icons of various characters from the series. I've been experimenting with different people other than Gerry Butler as Jamie. And I've made an icon with Diana Gabaldon's ideal Claire as well! Credit is wonderful, but not necessary. However, I would appreciate it if you would comment if you're going to take any, since I like to know how well they're received, and it helps me when I'm deciding what to make in future posts if I know what went over well. Let me know who like or don't like as Jamie. I like this Claire, and I intend to make many more icons of her with this actress.

Stay tuned, I expect to post some more icons next week too!

Who is the actress for Claire? I haven't read the books yet but I've finally bought the first one and am just about to start it.

It's Madeline Stowe from Last of the Mohicans. Have fun reading the books! I hope you love them as much as I do! *sigh* You can't just read them once either. I've read them many times, and constantly listen to them on audiotape commuting to work in a neverending loop. Enjoy!

Yay for non-Butler Jamie! But who are the Jamies in your icons?

BTW re: your reading list - you MUST add Elizabeth Hoyt! And Gods Behaving Badly was very surprising, more Shaun of the Dead than chick lit, and absolutely the sweetest love story :)

Edit: And I definitely like #1 for Jamie. He's got that rustic look to him.

Thanks, I'll look into Elizabeth Hoyt. What book do you recommend I start with of hers? My TBR pile is huge! But, I have a lot of books to look forward to! Anything to tide me over until An Echo in the Bone comes out in Fall 2009 (hopefully.)

Glad you like number 1. My Jamies come from all over, #1 is this cute guy from a Danish film, The Lost Treasure of the Knights Templar that I haven't seen it, but koalathebear posted his picture in her journal talking about the movie and I thought he'd make a good Jamie. I have no idea what his real name is. #2 is Henry Cavill who is currently playing Brandon in the Tudors. He's gorgeous! (though I much prefer him with his natural dark hair *swoon*) #3 is from Rob Roy, the actor is Eric Stolz, and #4 is that gorgeous model that is Halle Barre's boyfriend and father of her baby, Gabriel Aubry.

I noticed your No Country icons. Then I saw you are a fan of Outlander (I met Diana a couple of years ago at a book signing). We have a lot in common. Friends?

Yeah sure! This is my icon journal here, my personal one is julielu I also run the community outlandishicons.

I tried to meet her and have her sign my copy of ABOSAA at the National Book Fair in Washington, but I couldn't get there. All the trains were diverted from Washington that day (some evil curse on the city!) and I waited and waited for my train (I live in NJ) to take me there, I was meeting friends, blah, blah, blah, and I couldn't get there! I was absolutely crushed! I had been so looking forward to meeting her - one of these days, when the next book comes out!

Perfect timing for me to see these beautiful icons since I just finished my reread of Dragonfly.

I'd never thought of Henry Cavill for Jamie but HOLY does he look the part in that icon. I'll be back to snag it later. Thanks!

Gorgeous as always!

I have missed your Outlander icons, it seems so long ago.

But the waiting certainly was worth it!

Thanks for these! Snagged them all, off course. :)

Thanks, I know it's been a while, I have to be in the right mood to make them, and I don't have as much time as I used to to make icons, since I'm working now and reading alot, but have no fear, more will be coming!

Madeline Stowe is DG's ideal Claire? I could definitely get used to the thought. And the Jamie in the 2nd icon is very Very handsome, although while reading I'd picture him more like in the 4th in my mind.
Beautiful work!

Well, she said that Madeline Stowe's hair in Last of the Mohicans is what Claire's hair looks like, and well... I just took it from there. She has a real Claire look to her - that British bloody hell no nonsense-ness about her, doesn't she? I can just see her... I keep thinking of what Joe Abernathy calls her too "Lady Jane." LOL

Oh how lovely! Thanks for those. I wish DG would give us a glimpse of "Jamie" from the comic as I'm just dying to see what he looks like.

I wish too - but then again, I don't wish it. I'm afraid I won't like it! But, something tells me it will look great! But, then how to justify it with whoever winds up playing him in the movie - whenever that is!
