that's good right? that looks like a good oh, right? *grin*

Indeed. I just went through your icons again, actually, and snagged one I've never seen before of Oz.
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on March 3rd, 2008 04:09 am (UTC)
ah Oz. there need to be more pictures of him out there in the world. Which one was it, btw (not a big deal if it's not to hand, i'm just curious)
beraht: Oz (2)beraht on March 3rd, 2008 04:14 am (UTC)
There are a surprising dearth of them. Only Riley has fewer amongst the main cast. I guess it's cause he was only around for two years? There should be more, regardless.

I heart Oz.
my monkied brain: oz - puppieskatekat1010 on March 3rd, 2008 04:19 am (UTC)
ooo! that's one of my favorites in terms of how the coloring came out!

and yeah, both of them didn't get enough play, in different respects. Poor boys! *pets them*

Heh. I don't know if you meant the subtext there but the closest I come to shipping any characters from any universe are Xander and Riley, and Xander and Oz. It's obvious that he had big ol' gay crushes on both of them and Anya was just his beard.

Also, this is my new default, for what it's worth. I was getting tired of Thor, anyway.

Amazing. I love the Dru one. Such seamless work and again, the mood you show is spot on perfect.

Thank you again! These were so much fun. I had originally added flames to the Dru one to make it qualify for the whendon challenge, and then thought they were just too much, so decided not to post them there :D

These are so pretty! I love the colors and effects you did w/ them. Just gorgeous! Really like the Buffy one. :)

Thanks darlingest girl!!! The buffy one was such a fun laugh - there's a bigger mandible in the original that I should've left in so it's more obvious she just killed a dragon. I can't believe I finally got a manga-like manip to work halfway decently.....

those are absolutely lovely
my monkied brain: spike - light in the darkness [ntm]katekat1010 on March 3rd, 2008 04:12 am (UTC)
thank you so much!

hey there, i just noticed you have about a half a dozen of my icons in your profile credited to "found online". I'm so glad you liked so many of the icons I made! it would be fantastic if you could credit me with the creation of them :D to do that you can actually add a < lj user = "katekat1010" > to the content line (removing spaces).

it's the ones labeled:
Love Spander Style
BtVS -- Buffy/Giles
BtVS -- Buffy/Faith
BtVS -- Giles Hott
BtVS -- Giles/Faith
BtVS -- Angel/Xander
Buffyverse Threesome X/W/G
BtVS -- Buffy/Xander

also, if you didn't get 'em from my archive (http://home.earthlink.net/~buzz007/extra-crap.html) and perhaps remember where you did find them, I'd love to know!

my friends and I share a computer and I'm not exactly 100% sure all thime where they find icons,

you're a sweetheart - thank you!

though i think maybe you put the code in the top line instead of the second line? it wont' make an error if you do it like the following post shows:

i remember where I found them!! It was on the site lol, silly me

All of them are particularly unique and lovely, but my favorite has to be Dru. That base couldn't be more perfect for what Dru is in my mind. Lovely work.
my monkied brain: a/f - adorationkatekat1010 on March 3rd, 2008 05:07 am (UTC)
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you like the Dru manip! especially since, when i found the base, I couldn't think of anyone but else for it but her!

Gothic Dru one is amazing - very fitting.
my monkied brain: faith - puppylv [ntm]katekat1010 on March 4th, 2008 05:12 am (UTC)
*grin* i thought it was just too appropriate a base myself. thank you!
Zoe: Drusilla colorzoesmith on March 3rd, 2008 02:18 pm (UTC)
They are all absolutely fabulous!! You did an excellent job. Bravo!
The Dru one is my favorite!! Just stunning!!

Thank you so much for the lovely feedback - you're too sweet!
of_too_mindsof_too_minds on March 5th, 2008 04:16 am (UTC)
Those are gorgeous. I really like them all but I think the Dru one is my favorite. She looks so ethereal.
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on March 23rd, 2008 11:04 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! they were lots of fun to do - and yeah, i think the Dru one works so well because the moment I saw the source pic i knew it had to be of her!

WOW, these are gorgeous! I love them!
