Icon Dump and some Romance and Austen icons @ 11:43 am


I've accumulated a lot of icons from various contests and just what crossed my mind. I have the usual Austen icons, (couldn't make up my mind of the one of Elizabeth Bennet, so I just posted all 4, with subtle differences), some Romance book cover icons, Richard Armitage and assorted misc. Enjoy!

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. No hotlinking please.

A variety today, I've made icons from the theatrical trailers of Atonement and 3:10 to Yuma (I made my own caps) I will make more of them. I also have 24 accumulated icons of POTC, mostly all of them from a LIMS I was in and other icontests. Hope you like them!

Please do not alter or add text to my textless icons, they are not bases.

Crediting is wonderful but not necessary. If crediting, use crymeariver_ I do request you comment if you are taking one, since it helps me to know what went over well for other posts.

16 POTC icons, DMC and World's End promos @ 10:56 am


I'm snowed in today - drat this snow! :'( So, thought I'd post some Pirate icons! All caps by me, or some from contests and promos, many of the Commodore this time, it's been a while. I'm still experimenting with coloring, if you don't like it, don't worry, it's nothing permanant. :D I've been in kind of an icon funk these days, not too motivated to make any, so if anyone has any suggestions as to what they'd like to see me make, please let me know! I've been struggling for the past few weeks, experimenting with color and hopefully I'll get out of it soon, thanks for putting up with me!

Credit is wonderful, but not necessary - hope you enjoy them!

Lots and lots of icons! @ 07:46 pm

Current Music: Desert Skies - Marshall Tucker Band

I have an assortment of icons from various icon challenges and assorted things, Pride & Prejudice, LOTR, Jane Eyre (I've just seen the first part :H). Thanks to bijoux's picspam, I've made some icons, will have to hold me over until I get the DVD, but I'll definitely be making more! Also, 1 from Dragonfly in Amber, and 1 from Anne of Green Gables, and some Narnia and Pirates too! Also some icons from the icon challenges at history_stills. Hope you like this batch of icons and help yourself!

40 Bridget Jones's Diary icons and more! @ 08:46 pm


I just watched Bridget Jones's Diary over again recently and felt inspired with the holiday season coming upon us. Predominantly of Firth and Bridget, my favorite scenes, really. An interesting bit of trivia that I noticed in the credits: Honor Blackman, who played Pussy Galore in "Goldfinger" (one of Sean Connery's best as Bond) played Penny Husbands-Bosworth, whose only "just had her ovaries done!" The handsome blondish-white haired woman that Pam mistakes for dressing like a "tart" at her outdoor party - oh what a good one! Here she is as Miss Galore, and here she is as Penny Husbands-Bosworth! Still quite striking, really. I have 3 more icons that I'll be adding to this post soon in the next few days, as well.

In addition, I've got some Christmasy themed ones from "A Christmas Story," my favorite Christmas time movie. Just a few that I made last year. I've also got some Pirate challenge entries and some more British actors, including what I consider, the real James Bond. ;) Also, one Outlander of Jamie (that was a remake of a gerrychallenge entry) and some challenge icons of Stonehenge that is kind of Outlander related in a way. Let's just say, because of the books, they hold a fond place in my heart. :H

A polyglot of icons @ 05:22 pm


I know it's been a while since I've posted, I've been busy with my new job and don't have as much time to make icons anymore, but at least I haven't stopped completely - nevah!

I've got a cornucopia of icons this time, I've been saving them up. Mostly Austen based, because I recently saw Sense & Sensibility again and loved Alan Rickman in it. Also some of Emma, (both versions) and some P&P3. 10 Pirates, 6 Master & Commander, mostly of Pullings (I know a few people who are crazy about Mr. D'Arcy), I couldn't make up my mind, so some have borders, some don't, some have text, some don't. Also, I have 3 Outlander icons, from the books by Diana Gabaldon. I finally made a David Wenham icon of Jamie, he's another favorite for casting, and I chose Tom Hollander as Tom Christie, who is the actor I picture in A Breath of Snow and Ashes. I have them headed as all from that book, but the ones of Roger and Jamie can be from any of them. I've also got some Narnia icons as well, all from various challenges. I also have a challenge entry from The Libertine 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. No hotlinking please. All caps are made by me, unless it was from a challenge.

ETA: Oh boy - thank you I now have over 100 friends subscribing on my friends list! You're the best and so supportive and generous with your comments! Thank you!!! :H

6 Master & Commander, 10 Pirates and more of your favorites! @ 10:49 pm

Current Mood: nervous nervous
Current Music: Is She Really Going Out With Him? - Joe Jackson

A little bit of this, a little bit of that. I'm reading Master & Commander by Patrick O'Brian, at the moment (love it!) and there was a certain part in the book that inspired me, just as Jack is announcing that he intends to land with the party of men for a raid on Spain, which involves a lot of running.

'Me sir?' cried James.

'Yes, you, sir; I am going ashore.' There was no answering the decision of this statement, and after a pause he went on to the detailed arrangements. 'Let us say ten minutes to run from the cove to the tower, and..."

'Allow twenty, if you please,' said Stephen. 'You portly men of a sanguine complexion often die suddenly, from unconsidered exertion in the heat. Apoplexy - congestion.'

'I wish, I wish you would not say things like that, Doctor.' said Jack, in a low tone: they all looked at Stephen with some reproach and Jack added, 'Besides, I am not portly.'


So, I give you some rather silly 'portly' icons of Jack Aubrey, trying to come to terms with his, er... his 'genteel figger.'

I also have some Pirates, some Autumn-like icons from the book, Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon and Anne of Green Gables, and Sharpe with Sean Bean, all from the 1st DVD and some Jane Austen icons! Enjoy!

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. No hotlinking please. All Sharpe and Anne caps made by me, Pirates caps from challenges and thephotobox, and M&C by makeitstopjamie.

16 Pirates Icons and some P&P2 (BBC) @ 09:22 pm


I have some free time and a good internet connection tonight while on vacation in Maine, so I thought I'd make an icon post, since I feel like it's been ages! Some various Pirates of the Caribbean, and POTC, Dead Man's Chest icons, some from icontests. (Scroll over the icon and it says what it's from.) Also, a few icons from various Austen icontests from P&P2, and other icontests and challenges as well. Comment, credit and enjoy. No hotlinking please. Please do not alter or add text to my textless icons, they are not bases. Some caps from the Pirates, DMC icons are from yorda_ and a tutorial by ohfreckle. Also, I've begun to put my lj name in the name's of my icons to better help you remember who made it. :D I would appreciate it if you would credit me if you are going to post them or highlight them in your journals. Nominations are welcome! :H

Current Music: Breakaway - Art Garfunkel

Multi-fandom post, including some from Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man's Chest (yes, I'm joining the many ranks, since I just saw the movie), Narnia icons from various challenges I’ve entered and some photos of royalty in movies, like Elizabeth and A Man for All Seasons (since I just read The Other Boleyn Girl and loved it!) Only 1 Outlander icon of Fergus as depicted by Orlando Bloom for Voyager, (credit to tempest_icons for the tutorial and this style) some icons of Ioan Gruffudd from some challenges, Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson from the upcoming Woody Allen movie, Scoop, and some various Austen and Pride and Prejudice (2005) icons, some from challenges intermixed with them.
