My apologies to those who kindly commented on my posts but whom I never answered; I haven't been up to even the thinnest veneer of social niceties for quite a while. Real life sucked and then sucked in new and creative ways for a long time. Either life isn't so bad now or I've adapted. I like to think it's the former. I'm watching SPN Season 9 after having missed most of 8 and the Photoshop bug has bitten me hard. Not sure that I'm up to extended commenting yet so should you want to save/use any of these, don't feel obligated to comment.

Turns out when you don't open Photoshop for more than a year, you forget a lot. Thank you to the people who choose caps for challenges; I leaned heavily on your work as I limped through breaking back into iconning. As is my wont, these are simple composition icons -- mostly very pretty faces.

Wow, haven't seen you around in a VERY long time. Welcome back! (Don't worry about replying -- just letting you know you were missed.)
Mish: Castiel -- Weak & Weary & Bloodyhsapiens on April 26th, 2014 02:55 am (UTC)
Years! It has been years. I hope that all is well with you. There are probably 20 people whom I miss and 10 whom it hurts to lose touch with; you're definitely one of those 10. *hugs*

Thank you for commenting! I'm glad you liked them.

I've missed your style so much ! I'm glad to see you back, hoping life will be nice to you from now on.

And Dean under the shower, show loves us all :)
Mish: Dean -- Shower of Painhsapiens on April 26th, 2014 03:00 am (UTC)
Thank you for your warm wishes and lovely compliment. *hugs*

When the episode started, I felt like fan fic and Show had somehow merged. Don't know when they noticed their actors were pretty without clothes but in my time away, there was nekkid Sam, Castiel, and now Dean. I am grateful. *happy sigh*
casett: SG1-O'Neill wheecasett on April 25th, 2014 11:50 pm (UTC)
Gorgeous as always! I haven't been around much either but just stopped by and saw that you are still making icons and still have the touch. Love always - Cas
Mish: Jack -- Noblehsapiens on April 26th, 2014 03:03 am (UTC)
*clings* I've missed you sooooo much. *clings* You are very kind. The Photoshop-fu is rusty at best but really, starting with such pretty faces -- it's hard to go wrong, you know?

Snagged all the Psych ones! Lovely!
Mish: Psych -- Teamworkhsapiens on April 26th, 2014 03:03 am (UTC)
Oh yay! I figured with its ending there wouldn't be a lot of love for them so I'm glad they pleased you.
angelus2hot: Star Trek Captain Kirk twinsangelus2hot on April 26th, 2014 03:04 am (UTC)
Stunning icons!

I've snagged Dean, John and the Star Trek icons. I will credit as they're uploaded.
Mish: Dean -- Coffee Addict (anim)hsapiens on April 27th, 2014 09:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I recently realized that I hadn't iconned JDM-John nearly enough so I'm glad they worked.

I want to use them because they're beautiful and precious but I have no icon room. ;; nooooooooonnnnnneeeeee. *cries and clings to your fantastic works*
Mish: Castiel -- You Make the Angels Weephsapiens on April 27th, 2014 09:59 pm (UTC)
I feel your pain. I love to go icon shopping but my eyes are always bigger than my space available. Thank you for commenting!
goldenusagigoldenusagi on April 26th, 2014 04:23 am (UTC)
I always need more P&P icons!
Mish: P&P -- Darcy Writing THE Letterhsapiens on April 27th, 2014 10:03 pm (UTC)
Oh man, those P&P icons were made years ago. Maybe 2011? They even have the old Scrapbook URLs. In the intervening time, I lost my caps, my Photoshop, all my PSDs...everything. (Seems like a hard drive death should be more...spectacular given the destruction they leave in their wake.) I have no memory of how I used to do outdoor colorings for P&P so it'll probably be a long while before I make more. That bites since I haven't yet gotten to the happy part.

Aaaaaand...that wasn't what you signed up for when commenting. :) Sorry for that side track. Thank you for the comment.

Please don't feel obligated to comment, I hope things continue to get smoother for you from now on.

I love your icons. Thank you!
Mish: Misha -- Can't Touch Thishsapiens on April 27th, 2014 10:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! <3

I don't feel obligated (as far too many unanswered comments for the last several years make too clear) but I really do appreciate every comment and I like to let people know how happy they make me. Thank you for you compliment!

These are lovely! Great compositions, bright colors and amazing use of text! Happy to see you back! :)
Mish: SPN -- Ruby hsapiens on April 27th, 2014 10:11 pm (UTC)
Oh, you've made my month! Thank you for your compliments; the text note is especially surprising (but all the more happy-making) as you're so very, very, very good at it and I am always and forever struggling with it. <3

Thank you for the lovely welcome back; I hope to continue playing in fandom/icon waters. I've missed talking to makers and being floored by the beautiful work all around me.
raloria - Screencapping Goddess: pic#123148997raloria on April 26th, 2014 07:25 am (UTC)
These are absolutely stunning! Like small works of art.

Would you consider posting the SPN ones over at positively_spn? I'm always looking for great icon-makers to share their works over there and yours are so very, very good! :D

Oh, and I just spent the past several hours plundering your past icon posts. *g*
Gorgeous, gorgeous work! Will credit you when I use them. I hope you'll continue making icons (I see you've been away from LJ for a few years).

Mish: Ackles -- Squee!hsapiens on April 27th, 2014 10:13 pm (UTC)
Aw, thank you! I hope that you know your journal inspires me and reminds me of everything I love about SPN. :)

Of course I would! Do you want me to just link here or actually post the icons there?

I have been away for several years and it's nice to be back.

So many great SPN icons! :D
I took some Charlie ones. Thank you! :)
Mish: SPN -- Charlie Special Swordhsapiens on April 27th, 2014 10:17 pm (UTC)
CHARLIE! I adore her! When I heard the rumors of an SPN spin-off, I had great hopes it would be the Charlie Show. She could hunt demons with her angel pals (Charlie's Angels!) and be fabulous and geeky and all around amazing. Alas, I was way off base.

I live in hope that they'll work out something to get Felicia Day on a more frequent basis. She breathes new life and story possibilities into Show.

I especially like the Mary ones. NONONO indeed.
Mish: SPN -- Young Mary/John Kissinghsapiens on April 30th, 2014 02:15 am (UTC)
Ever since they (re?)wrote Mary as hunter, a twist that I love, I've wondered what Mary thought when she realized that was probably yellow eyes upstairs with Sam. Knowing not only that something very bad was near her baby but that her own choices led to that...I feel for Mary.

Love so many of these. Don't know which ones I'm taking yet but a few SPN & Star Trek for sure. Will credit when used. Thanks for sharing. Gorgeous! =)

*tackle hugs*

These are fantastic, you certainly haven't lost your touch while you've been away.
Mish: Ackles -- Squee!hsapiens on April 30th, 2014 02:25 am (UTC)

For sufficient broad definitions of "back," yes. :) I still have 2000 messages in my inbox (only because LJ deletes any more than 2000), I owe so many people comments it's well beyond embarrassing, and I'm working insane hours still -- but I want to be back, which is a good feeling.

You have always been very generous and kind in your estimation of my skill and I appreciate it very much. I have a lovely rut niche where I play and I am extremely fortunate that so many people like that same groove. :)

Wow, I love how sharp your colours are! The icons look absolutely stunning.
Mish: Dean/Impala -- OTPhsapiens on April 30th, 2014 02:28 am (UTC)
Thank you! <3 I am a huge fan of color.
There's a scientific explanation for that: Dean - smiley facehugemind on April 28th, 2014 10:32 pm (UTC)
So many pretty icons! Love the colors. I snagged a bunch of SPN pretties and will credit. Thank you! :D

Mish: CA -- Auggie & Anniehsapiens on May 8th, 2014 02:43 pm (UTC)
Thank you for the compliment! I love that USA is developing an entire suite of quality programming. I am not so fond of the stop/start/hiatus/not hiatus scheduling but they have good actors and good writers. Plus? Piper Perabo is smoking hot.
