[49] frodo lives!

I am alive, I promise. It's just that getting ready for university & other summer activities rather get in the way of things. Anyway, my friend and I watched through all three Lord of the Rings movies in three consecutive days -- a cinematically amazing experience, if an exhausting one -- and my obsession with the films and books has recommenced. I didn't feel like Doing Things I Should Be Doing this morning, so I pulled out the extended edition DVD of The Two Towers and made some icons.

These are organised by character, and further LotR icon sets (which are likely) will be similarly structured. This set features Faramir, Frodo & Sam, and Merry & Pippin.

[48] god may be dead, but i am not

Wow. So it's been over five months since I last posted here. I could offer up the usual excuses (high school, graduation, college things -- i.e., life, in general), or I could just shut up and show you the icons? :D

This is a very miscellaneous set of stock icons: random pretty things I found on Veer while I try to rediscover my icon muse.

[47] it's a wild stretch of land

So maybe I'm a little obsessed with Patrick Wolf. That's quite all right, I think.

The first twenty icons are from assorted images drawn from all over the internets, and the last eight are from Patrick's music video for Wind in the Wires. It's something like a dark and swoony striptease and is pretty much the hottest thing I've ever seen. Just go and watch it. ♥

[44] let it snow! let it snow! let it snow!

eep, I haven't posted icons since, um, September. I suppose, when matters like college applications, school, and NaNoWriMo pop up, fiddling around with Photoshop tends to fall on the list of priorities.

So here is a seasonal set of holiday/Christmas icons - I do believe the contrast is a bit weak on some of them because I'm working with a new laptop and the screen rather different in quality from what I'm used to. Just ignore those. :P

[42] how the hand is held

Ooh, finally, a return to Photoshop! And thank you, college applications, for giving me an opportunity to procrastinate.

I am working away on the interest icons, but in the meantime, here is some Kurt Halsey. His work is very beautiful, very moving, and you should all take a look! It speaks to my Teenage Angst™ intimately.

100 watchers!

See subject! :D :D :D

I apologise for my absence - I just got back from China a few days ago, and with school starting very shortly and jetlag being something of a bitch, I haven't had time to return to Photoshop.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, however, I invite you to leave a comment to this entry and I will pick two of your interests to icon. In this comment, feel free to request a specific kind of border - i.e., no border, thin white border, etc. - but this is only optional.

You are all amazing. Truly. ♥♥♥
