Icon Contest for Phantom of the Opera fans

Hello, all!

First I'd like to apologize that I've rather abandoned this community, basically because I haven't felt icon-making inspiration for ages now. It may be partly because I got into photography, so that's where my creative energies have been flowing! (You can see my photostream on Flickr, though it too is a bit neglected of late.)

This post goes out to all the Phantom of the Opera fans reading.

Phantom of the Opera .com is holding an icon contest for new Phantom icons, as new avatars on the forums there. The winners will also be posted here, if they have icon journals or pages to be linked to.

So if you're a Phantom fan and an icon maker, please consider entering!

You have to register for the forums to post your entry there, but there's no requirement to participate in discussion or anything. Though you're very welcome if you want to!

I'd love to get some good entries, so I thought I'd post here and let you know about it. Feel free to post this to any relevant communities, should you want to, too.

Well, those were some exciting products, am I right? Let's all think about buying some of those.Collapse )

59 random and somewhat bizarre icons
by the adventures of Christine (cdaae)
at August 27th, 2007 (10:34 pm)
current song: Thom Yorke

A rather random set of 59 icons, mostly of somewhat strange and peculiar images, some of them filling requests. It's kind of my version of the type of icon posts you find at the wonderful and unique iconomicon.

Includes some with swear words. Also, signs, bugs, 1984, lego, cartoons, book covers, funnies, and random oddness.

Samples:

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams - Eleanor RooseveltCollapse )

Thanks also to everyone who answered the requests and suggestions thread. I'll be going through making some for as many of the suggestions as I can - next set is going to include a bunch of classic horror icons, amongst other things.

Suggestions, requests, favourites...
by the adventures of Christine (cdaae)

Tags:

As there are more than 400 people watching this community, I thought I'd ask what your favourite kind of icons are, and what you'd like to see me make more of.

I'm not going to promise to fill all requests, but please throw out any suggestions you'd like - movies, tv shows, colours, words, themes, lyrics, objects, political issues, whatever. As random as you like, whether it's something I've ever iconed before or not.

Also if you want to request an icon from a specific picture, go ahead, but please give me a link to the pic. Say if you want any particular text, or want it dark or light, or whatever.

Thank you all! :)

Tutorial: Casino Royale icon

at August 17th, 2007 (07:45 pm)
current song: Pulp

queenpeladon asked me if I'd do a tutorial some time, so I guess it's time to reveal the secrets of one or two of the Bond icons...

16 Bond - Casino Royale
by the adventures of Christine (cdaae)
at August 16th, 2007 (10:01 pm)
current song: Dido, Life for Rent

Just 16 Casino Royale icons, mostly because I wanted to make myself something with a poker theme.

181 Wesley Wydam-Pryce (Angel)
by the adventures of Christine (cdaae)
at August 7th, 2007 (10:14 pm)
current song: Annie Lennox, Love Song for a Vampire

[181] Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, from Angel (and BtVS).

These are weighted in favour of seasons 3 and 4, but they go from Buffy to a handful from season 5 - quite a few Wes/Fred and Wes/Lilah. There are a bunch of scenes I still intend to do, but I think I need to shut Photoshop for a few days/weeks/months because it's doing weird things to my dream life.

So, more from the early seasons, plus later season 4 and more season 5, coming some time in the future. If you have any specific requests, make 'em and I'll let you know whenever I post the next lot. I will also at some point post the absolutely massive collection of bases I've built up.

Samples:

Scourge of the demon worldCollapse )

36 movie icons - dark classics
by the adventures of Christine (cdaae)

36 movie icons from a few of my favourite films there probably aren't that many icons of.

[9] The Abominable Dr Phibes
[9] Les Yeux Sans Visage
[11] Soylent Green
[7] Shadow of a Doubt

The Shadow of a Doubt ones are the same ones I posted the other day, but I thought it made sense to put them in with these.

Soylent Green is WHAT, you say??Collapse )

54 icons - women, men, Shadow of a Doubt
by the adventures of Christine (cdaae)
at July 26th, 2007 (06:29 pm)

54 icons - mostly the usual moody faces, but for once this set includes a selection of guys as well as the women. Plus a couple of guitars, some umbrellas, and a Marilyn Manson.

Also includes 7 icons of Joseph Cotten as Uncle Charlie in Hitchcock's Shadow of a Doubt, because he's one of my favourite evil but sexy types.

Samples:

What's the use of looking backward? What's the use of looking ahead?Collapse )
