57. 114 Icons: Teen Wolf, SPN, Scientists  
65 Teen Wolf
34 Supernatural
15 Scientists
114, total

Not going to lie, I'm a little embarrassed to be watching something called, "Teen Wolf." I'm not MTV's target demographic and the main characters are far too young for me but some of the ancillary characters are HOT and the show spends a lot of energy figuring out how to get the men out of their shirts. I am shallow. Very, very shallow. Some of the writing is good (the long-term story lines) and some of it's very not good. They're employing gorgeous women (Including Buffy's Kendra! I loved Bianca on Buffy and I love her here, too!) who are lots of fun to icon; I'm struggling to find a cap of Deacon that I like for iconning so sadly no Deacon yet.

Did I mention the men spend a lot of time without shirts?

It was kind of a relief to return to the mature men of SPN, where I don't feel vaguely uneasy about the actors' ages. I love show but I'm Supernaturaled out this week. I'm having some issues with the way the boys have changed over the years (went from saving people, hunting things! to just hunting things) and haven't changed (still lying to protect the other) that I find disturbing and frustrating. I was very sad to see Abaddon go; Alaina Huffman is so drop dead gorgeous and she owns every scene. I've seen rumbling about Dean's new colorful wardrobe, which I get from a characterization PoV. From an iconning PoV, I'm all for something not drab and same old-same old so it's a wash for me.

If we'd get fewer layers of shirts, of any color, and more Supernatural shirtlessness I would be in Heaven. \o/

The scientist icons were something I started back in 2011 but I lost my source caps in a HD failure. It took a surprising amount of time to gather them in the first place so I think I'll call this done though I had lots more planned.

Watson and Crick but no Rosalind Franklin? ngl I'm a little disappointed ;D
I'm soooo excited to see scientist icons on LJ! You've done well with this whole post!

OMG, I love you so hard. I started the scientist icon project years ago and one of the reasons it took me forever and a day was because of exactly this sort of thing: should I icon Watson and Crick, the jerks, but not Franklin? Nobody is going to know who she is (grrrr) but it's WRONG to icon the guys who got all the glory and not the woman whose pioneering work made theirs possible. I eventually planned to include her for completeist/right reasons but after I made some icons, I stalled (publicity photos are *hard* -- they're so visually boring), and then a HD crash took all those lovely caps. All of which is no good excuse for having the boys and not Ms. Franklin.

I am just so thrilled that anyone else knows who she is!!!

Oh, lovely stuff. I especially like the one with Dean throwing salt. And the Crowley with the crown!
Mish: Dean -- Denialhsapiens on May 20th, 2014 08:45 pm (UTC)
Oooooh! That one with Dean throwing the salt was a complete experiment, me throwing spaghetti at the wall, not certain if it stuck or not. I'm so glad that one appealed to you. Crowley SO needs a crown!

Took number 6, thank you :).

PS I'm 39 and totally not ashamed of watching Teen Wolf. There are (many) worse shows out there ;).
Mish: TW -- Stiles Skinny Defenselesshsapiens on May 20th, 2014 08:41 pm (UTC)
My pleasure. :)

You're quite right: there are far worse things to watch on television. I enjoy the season-long story structure quite a lot. I had the same knee-jerk to Buffy: "Why would I want to watch a show set in high school??"

I'm more sensitive about the actors' ages because I work at a university and I'm around students of roughly that age all the time. It's a little hard to go from thinking of them as "kiddos" to one of ogling their age-peers. Or, at least, it's squirm-inducing in a less than pleasant way.

Beautiful Supernatural and Teen Wolf icons. I especially like your TW black & white set.
Mish: TW -- Melissa's Silhouettehsapiens on May 20th, 2014 08:48 pm (UTC)
Yay!!! I took a couple of years off from Photoshop and I've found on my return that I really love working with black and white. I love the shadows and drama and how removing color leads the eye to notice details that are normally not as obvious..anyhow, they're my precious babies. I know there isn't as much appeal to general users so just knowing somebody else found them appealing makes me happy! :)
