I did actually make some icons for NaArMaMo that weren't from Enemy at the Door. Here are the rest (barring a few from Ripper Street that I hope to make a full set out of sometime) - mini sets on a theme for each day, in most cases.

1. I decided to do [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo again this year. We'll see how it goes, but it's very laid back (indeed, it's practically horizontal in the nicest possible way) and I can always stop, or go down to every other day if I find it a bit much still. Naarmamo, is National Art Making Month, but it's just fun - you make and share one thing that counts as art each day and you can join in whenever. (It started yesterday, but I know people wouldn't mind if someone turned up on the last day if that was when they found it, or all they can manage.) At the moment, I'm planning to do icons each day. (I will share them here, too, at some point.)

2. I finally posted my Eighth Doctor Recs List to [livejournal.com profile] who_at_50, just in case there is anyone who would be interested but doesn't follow the comm. It was meant to be part of last year's big fanworkathon, but, er, it was delayed. I was at the time thinking of doing posts for the other two generally under-represented Doctors (along with Two and One), those being Six and Seven, but it's way past the deadline now and maybe it seems a little big-headed, I don't know. I probably will. I like recs lists and masterlists and things. I can't help it.

3. I've been starting to do some odd little bits of Heroes of the Revolution (my gloomy 1970s fake TV show) for [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales, though I don't know if I'll eventually pluck up courage to do any posting. (Hopefully!) Anyway, I was trying to write a timeline for my alternate post-war history. (It's mostly vague). But it was interesting. I had previously settled on 1991 as the date of the series, but I think I should probably pull it back a bit to the mid 1980s. But I was thinking about various things off the back of this, and also the fact that the moment I start speculating about what happened to rl important people, it doesn't work, even though it's a perfectly sensible question. (If there's anyone you'd like me to kill off in this alternate reality, I could do it quite easily, though... ;-p In the meantime, I shall be contemplating foreign agents in Britain and what they might be up to.)

And these are the remaining odd few things I did for [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo that weren't part of a forthcoming icon set.

A handful from The Strange Report (mainly because it was pretty and I was tired of BBC Shakespeare every day) and a few in tribute to the lovely Mary Tamm (as Romana) for today's entry.

Icons under the cut )
Mostly I made Shakespeare icons, which I should hopefully post here tomorrow in honour of the final day of 'naarting' for 2012. I also made a texture set, which is in my previous post. (Textures being various things, but mainly patterns, colours, gradients, pictures etc. that can be used as layers when making icons and other graphics. These are icon-sized, and I made them by scanning in two old cards and some material together and then playing around with the result.)
lost_spook: (S&S - Silver looks up)
It suddenly struck me, after my screen capping yesterday that James Maxwell was really not far off the idea of Copper I had in my head for a fic I wrote a while back. And I felt the need to draw Copper then, so I did, and scanned it in for today's 'naart' for [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo.

53 Big Finish icons, text and images. As I did many of these for [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo, some may be a little random, but bear with me - I'll definitely do some more when I can.

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] kitnkabootle! Hope you have a great day, whatever you're up to.

I've been making icons (and things) daily for [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo this month, so made today's entry all Stella Gonet/Bea in your honour. I hope you like one or two of these.

Four more, same as before. Well, nearly. Of the male variety this time, and possibly less pretty, although I suppose that depends on your point of view...

Today's entry - four very close crops (plus four medium crops for comparison). They are probably even more obscure than usual, barring one.

The last lot of request icons, for [livejournal.com profile] paranoidangel42 who actually wanted as many Doctors as I could get on an icon (I have an idea, and I'd like to make it one day, but I had to admit it wasn't sensible at the moment) but did also say 'or bunnies!' and [livejournal.com profile] belantana who really asked for a West Wing picspam, but she did say 'anything to do with the West Wing', so I made yet more icons.

Bunnies and US Politics? )
lost_spook: (b7 - Avon)
For [livejournal.com profile] cersia5 who asked for Snape and for Avon + snark. (Sorry, I didn't manage any Lefroy/Jane.) I also did Rimmer, just because there is apparently some logic in my brain that moves from Snape and Avon to Arnold Rimmer.

Snarkage of sorts )
lost_spook: (spooks - good days bad days)
Some more requests for Day 24!

[livejournal.com profile] dweomeroflight asked for Danny/Zoe, or anything from S1-3 of Spooks. I hope these will answer (and now that my icons are getting respectable, I'll really have to make some more Spooks screencaps - these are from the beginning of 2.6, which along with the whole of 2.5 are my only caps, so I was a bit limited). Anyway, some Danny and Zoe and early Spooksiness, if nothing else:

Spooks icons, non-sparkly )
lost_spook: (dw - Martha)
These were made for Day 23 from caps sent by [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1. She requested that I keep them plain - no frilly textures and certainly no sparkles! So I tried to still stretch myself a bit for [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo within that (mainly with cropping, subtle textures/textures as colouring etc.) but - and this is how to get extra selection of icons, LOL - a plain base/alternate just in case that still counted as frilly. To pay for it, there will be slight commentary. Sorry about that.

Icons here )

Anyone wanting to use will need to ask [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 for permission.
lost_spook: (HoE - french and saunders)
I had nothing particular lined up for today's 'naart', so took up the (probably not-at-all-serious) requests/suggestions my flisters helpfully made for things that should have sparkly icons. (And don't worry; I do realise that none of the suggestions was made in an 'I want to use that icon' sense!)

For [livejournal.com profile] pitry, who thought Spike should be sparkly (under a cut for mild language - it is Spike we're talking about here:
Ironic Sparkly Spike )

For [livejournal.com profile] belantana, who wanted Sparkly Spooks. (And I'm sorry; I was tired when I made these and it shows, but they were a joke really!) I only have caps from 2.05 (and some somewhere from 2.06), but sparkly action! spooks, happy sparkly spooks, and sparkly Ruth:

And [livejournal.com profile] justice_turtle's suggestion (not particularly sparkle-related, but I put some in anyway) that I do a Silver icon with a Star Trek quote about Q. (And I am just sorry that as it turned out, I had no suitable cap of him with that tambourine to make it funnier!):


And, actually, barring maybe doing some more textures, I'm not sure what to do for the remaining 9 or so days - does anyone have any more suggestions/requests? (I know I'm hardly the world's best icon-maker, but even so, any ideas/requests, or provide me with a cap and I'll see if I can fit it into the remainder of [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo. Or just give me a fandom/character and a prompt/quote to challenge me.

It has taken me 22 days to run out of ideas, but I think I just about have, so I'd actually be grateful. Shoot - no guarantees I'll make the icon, or that you'll like it, but I'll try my best!

My NaArMaMo progress:

As you might have noticed from some previous posts, any gaps are where I did non-icon entries (and also my Big Finish icons, which I am saving for a proper post), and that's why it's a two-week update. Anyway, in these two weeks, I learnt how to use my scanner a bit more, made two texture sets and found out what some of the brushes on my image program actually do. (Yes, they can add sparkles!) Plus, I have admired some far more impressive art at [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo daily.

Icons and sparkles )

It's [livejournal.com profile] fic_rush! (And all right, I realise that it's been going on for 20 hours already, but I was distracted.)

So, just a reminder for those not already over there writing/cheerleading/procrastinating/fighting ninja penguins/drinking coffee, that you should be heading in that direction now.

In other news, I broke my glasses/my glasses broke (am waiting for new pair and not liking being reduced back to my c.2004 pair I never liked much anyway. Because I broke the previous pair as well, yes).

But I did not let this stop me making another fanvid from the Carry On clips you will be dismayed to hear. It is this: Even the Bad Times Are Good. A general tribute/montage, but I like to think of it as my entry for the Most Cheerful Fanvid Ever competition. (If there were such a thing.) Feel free to see what you think; I hope it makes people smile.

[livejournal.com profile] naarmamo continues to be interesting and fun, and I am all admiration at other people's art. In the course of trying to experiment, I have been learning about brushes on my image programme and can now make icons that have sparkly bits on. The next step will be restraining myself from putting sparkly bits on every icon... (I'll hopefully do an update post tomorrow).
lost_spook: (cute kittens)
I'm doing quite well on the 'making something other than icons' front this week! (Yes, sorry about that meaning these random posts, flist; never mind). If making icon texture bases count as not-icons. Which they do to me.

Download here

Feel free to snaffle if you like. Credit and comments are always nice of course, but as long as no one claims to have made the set themselves (and, LOL, why would they?), not necessary for textures. Again, the image was a scanned in birthday card.

Because I said I would post here if I did anything that wasn't an icon:

Day eight )

Also I said I would post any icons made together at the end of the month, but I realised that there may be quite a few. Here is the week one collection:
