For the icons200 challenge I've been gradually working my way through. I started these last summer and then stopped before I'd made the last handful for some reason. I have now made the last handful, and, lo, icons for the BBC's 1970s period drama The Duchess of Duke Street, featuring the ever-amazing Gemma Jones.

Deciding on what to icon next takes far longer than making icon sets... Anyway, I remembered that I wanted to cap and icon some of the Margaret Lockwood films and as this set was clearly meant for The Wicked Lady (1945), that's what I did. (Featuring Margaret Lockwood, Patricia Roc, James Mason, Griffith Jones & Michael Rennie.)

While I was ill I also rewatched most of Mr Palfrey of Westminster (starring Alec McCowen, Caroline Blakiston, and Clive Wood) and remembered how good it was once it got going (and how little of it there is, sadly) so it was my next choice for an icon set.

28 Poldark (1975) set of icons. It was meant to be mostly other characters, as I'd already done a Ross/Demelza set a while back, but I couldn't quite keep them out, really.

Despite my radio silence, I have continued to progress quite nicely over the last week & even survived an out-patient trip back to the hospital without being too exhausted afterwards. However, I've still been not so able to comment and interact here yet, but that should start to return to normal this week, too, I hope. In the meantime, I slowly made an icon or two each day, so now I have another set to post! (I don't know what to do next, though. I am working my way through this list and am not having any immediate thoughts for Set 8 and onwards. Feel free to give me suggestions, which I may take up or ignore as I feel led. ;-p)

Anyway, when you run out of AAL! eps because of cruel burnination, what else do you do to keep cheerful but icon it?

I am a little better than last week now (thankfully!) but still v low; also it's hard to comment due to people in my house (looking after me but also eating up my energy too, unfortunately! I'm a ungrateful so-and-so). However, I'd finished this set before being hospitalised, so here are some pretty icons in the meantime. (Your interesting comments last post were all GREAT and MUCH appreciated even if I haven't managed a reply yet!! Thank you!! <3)

So [livejournal.com profile] ravenskyewalker suggested I do some Twelve next, and as it turned out the next icons200 batch of themes suddenly made sense if I considered them in the light of the S8 two-part finale. It was really weird doing new tv, though; I need to get back to the old tv! (What is this shiny stuff, how does it work?)

There are more extras/alternates than usual, because it took me a while to settle on the second Artist's Choice set.

Enough of the moaning; I pulled myself together enough to make some icons over the last few days. The themes come from the icons200* thing I was doing ages ago. (I went to find it and realised I'd stopped because obviously this set had to be Seven & Ace and I needed more screencaps. And, lo, I was unwell enough not to grudge time spent screencapping last week.)

Now, what on earth to icon next...?


*I wanted a reason to icon (I fall so easily into thinking it just pointless & it's not) and picked the theme list from the now-defunct icons200 comm and was doing each installment of 10 themes + 10 artists' choice (like a 20by20), with option to swap out prompts if I didn't like them. I might continue again now sometimes.

Made back in August or September, but I kept forgetting to post them. Anyway, a set for the BBC 1990s costume drama The House of Eliott, also posted for Fandom Snowflake Day 7 (create a fanwork).

I am going to Post All The Things! (Well, ish.) Here is the second set for my [profile] icons200 thingy I am sort of doing, which I actually made in June.

Also, I am only posting icons to LJ now and linking from Dreamwidth, because this month (if only for a few hours at the end), I went over my Photobucket bandwidth, which means that some people must be hotlinking to my pics (it happened overnight, I did nothing), but it also occurred to me that these days I had everything duplicated on Dreamwidth, which couldn't be good for it, either. So I deleted all the back-up icon posts, and I'll try to remember not to crosspost images any more.

I made icons! I got a bit carried away and have made the first set in my Grand Plan already, so here we are - 20 Ross & Demelza icons, from Poldark (S1, 1975). It's lovely to have made some again.

I've come up with a make-icons plan! (Why do I always need a plan/excuse for things I like doing?) Anyway, one of the joys of LJ is there's a comm for everything, even if it's been defunct for five or more years, so... I have themes stolen from [livejournal.com profile] icons200, which are alphabetical and in sets of 10, so I just decide on a show/character/pairing for that set, make the 10 icons, and am allowed up to 10 artist's choice on the same subject, and once I get a set, make a post! Simple. (Those are my rules that I made up, btw.)

Not simple - getting used to a new graphics programme. Why is this one superior to the other in nearly all the ways, but it won't do a simple thing like rotate a layer rather than the whole image? (I had to do text on a new image, rotate that and copy it in. Well, I moved the image over actually, it doesn't seem to want to copy, or not to paste it anyway. But I have brushes, so you know... Software being software, basically. Especially, as ever, with me, free/outdated/cheap software being software.)

Anyway, first set will be Poldark, as threatened, but Ross & Demelza only this time. (But I have 19 more sets to go, and I'll definitely do the other characters. I need to screencap some more yet, too.)
