Icon meme  
from secondalto & antennapedia

Reply to this post, and I will tell you my favorite icon of yours. Then post this to your own journal using your own favorite icon.

And I love this particular icon that I'm using because ... it's pretty, and it's understated, and it's Giles.  BUT DAMN that was hard.

Ok. I'll play.

ok, well, the one of yours that i've loved for a really long time is this one:

because it's so understated, and i love the color tones.

but one of my all time favorite icons ever is this:

... literati really defined Giles icons for me, and i think this is the most ultimate of ultimates.

and this one, because it's such classic faith:

Ok, there are MANY of your icons I adore, but my two favorites have to be these:

AND because they are so sweet, and so delicate, and so perfectly Buffy/Willow goodness!

Do me, please?

ok, totally has to be this one:

(not that you don't have some incredible icons, because this one is SO damn hot... and so are the HLaurie ones, and ... gah! too many choices)

BUT, I chose the one above as my number one because it's sooo pretty, and I don't even know the show. It's eyecatching every time you use it, and the colors are great, and I can see the hotness kind of leaping from the icon!

GAH. TOO many choices. Seriously. too many. i think my brain almost exploded. In a good way.

Although, to be honest, this one:

is totally the one that gets me. I really like the clarity of the whites in his face, the lovely texture of his clothes AND the way the text is very soft yet totally readable.

OTOH, these are also my favorites:

I know you love Ruuger's icons, and I do too, and this one has many of the same qualities as the one above that makes me love it.

Because it's a perfect Giles "i'm smarter than you" kind of pose! and it always makes me want to grin when i see it.

OK, once again, way too many choices. But you know, every time you use this icon I totally end up lusting after it a little bit, so I think it has to be this one:

It's one of those perfect moment kinds of things. It totally makes me smile, and it's really lovely coloring and text, and ... it's just a happy icon.

BUT, a very close runner up is this one:

It's really a lovely laugh, and the white balance is so cool. I actually am in envy. Hee.

Can I play?
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on January 17th, 2007 10:32 pm (UTC)
always! and hey, have you heard anything from Aida sensei about class and stuff? I got a note from one of my other profs, but not from the japanese classes...

OK, so, I have to pick this one:

Beautiful cropping, beautiful look, love the text and the textures and brushes. And even though it's totally layered, it's still pretty understated.

Now, are you gonna do the meme too so i can ask you which of mine are your fav?

I'm not surprised you had a hard time picking a favourite, with so many great icons to choose from.
my monkied brain: b/g - look of lovekatekat1010 on January 18th, 2007 12:07 am (UTC)
hee! likewise - you have some really beautiful icons ... and if you hadn't picked that giles/jenny one as your favorite i probably would have...

although, seriously,

this one totally caught my eye - i love the text on it, and the cropping is simply beauty... and the lighting is yummy.

*cannot resist the meme*
my monkied brain: faith - Lustkatekat1010 on January 18th, 2007 12:02 am (UTC)
man, this is HARD. Ok, these are the two that I adore the most, out of so many choices...

I love the way the white is so subtle that it looks like broken glass to me.. and the coloring is delicate and not heavy handed. Also, with most icons that are full face like this you generally feel like the face is pushing at the boundaries, but this icon doesn't feel shoved at all - just delicate.

but then there's this one:

which I adore - the text, the cap, and the whole tone is just ... SEXY. that look gets me every time...

Hello. I wanna play. And I wanna say that my fave icon of yours is the xander-chagrin one. I just like the colours a lot, the soft blue-grey. And Nick Brendan looks cute. :)
my monkied brainkatekat1010 on January 17th, 2007 11:57 pm (UTC)
*waves* hi!

Ok, out of yours (which I love - so much B/G goodness!), I think my favorite is this one:

partially because I love the way they're framed - it's such a quite and sweet moment. The colors are great and the text looks lovely with it. Quite yummy all together!

Although, the icon you just commented with has to be a runner up - brilliant way to cap that scene and bring subtle color into it.

(and you've totally picked one of my current favoritest of my icons - Xander is totally cute in that pic, and i love how sharp it came out!)

I'm curious, as a good portion of them are yours. :p

actually, for people who have my icons, i've chosen icons other than my own - i'm still in the process of trying to make the perfect icon, but IMO i haven't done it yet and am still a long way off.

that being said, this is SO my favorite of all of your icons, including the ones you have from me:

It's beautiful. I love the composition. I love the colors. I love the moment. And it says so much without words.

Speaking of which, you know how i started moving away from text on icons? well you were definitely part of that motivation... and now i'm liking textless icons more and more.

oooo - sooo much goodness. But I have to say, this one:

totally gets me. The cropping is beautiful, i really love the way the colors are soft, but still vibrant, and i just love Buffy's profile...
