61. 105 Icons: SPN and Teen Wolf  
35 Supernatural
70 Teen Wolf
105, total

The Deanmon icon may be the creepiest icon I've ever made; I had to balance it with some silly, happy, and sexy Deans and a peek of Sam dimples and Castiel tongue. It was necessary. *nods*

I hate the makeup job they do on wereKate; she looks like a wereBlueberry. Why did they make her a streaky blue?!? Jaguars are not blue. Also, I despair of Season 4's love of dark tunnels. Wonderful atmosphere but they make for blurry, fuzzy graphics. When the screencap starts pixelated, it's hard (for me, at least) to pull a decent image out of it.

On a personal note, I've spent much of the past week with a bone infection (über-painful) and my vision wonky as the optometrist tries to figure out the best compromise for my non-standard vision issues. I'm a walking raw nerve and I'm totally using that as an excuse for some of my less successful experiments below, even though that's probably a lie as most of these were made well before I became decrepit. It is a good excuse for why I put them here for the world to see.






















steal + DO NOT POST TO FANPOP + watch this comm
brush and floss daily + screencap credits + resources

All of these are cool, they look like comic book clips.

Even through your health issues (that I hope will get better very soon), I still love your style and colours better than anyone else's. I'm pretty sure I'm going to add some of those Dean and/or Sam icons to the ones I'm using already. Thanks once again :)
Mish: Dean -- Young and Cockyhsapiens on September 28th, 2014 06:49 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you! ♥ I'm playing around a little with color and textures so I'm glad to see that you still like them. :)

Loving the bright colors and the smoothness effect on the faces, very cool!

Hey girl! It's been awhile! I snagged the Deanmon icon-will credit you when using it-thanks! I hope you feel better soon!
Mish: Dean -- Shower of Painhsapiens on September 28th, 2014 06:56 pm (UTC)
It HAS been awhile! Howdy to you! I am trying not to get my hopes up for how they'll write Dean as Demon this season because I think there is so much potential there. I sooooo badly want Sam to straight up save Dean; he hasn't gotten to do that yet, really, and I want it for his character.

I'm sure that I will! I have meds and weekly changes to my eye prescription to see what I can best live with so I know I'll be better soon-ish. I am, alas, impatient and a week of unhappiness has been more. than. enough. A Winchester I am not.

Hi! Rushed to the end so I could send you some love and good wishes for your health issues. I'm sure there's something I'll love here, so will steal and credit when I use them.

Take care!
Mish: Dean -- Young and Cockyhsapiens on September 28th, 2014 07:04 pm (UTC)
*smooches* ♥ ♥ I have the good fortune of living in a city overrun with excellent doctors so I have good people taking care of me. I'm just impatient for answers and solutions and no more pain, please. I may watch shows about people with a tolerance for misery but I am most certainly not one of them!

So in love with the PSAT one and the Fierce Lydia one :D They're all beautiful.
Mish: TW -- Lydia Should Scream Nowhsapiens on September 28th, 2014 07:08 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Although several of the characters in Teen Wolf appeal to me, I think that Lydia became my favorite when, in Season 2, she squared her shoulders and faced the staring crowds of kids. She is fierce and I love her for it.

omg, these icons are flawless! my lj icons folder is slowly being filled with your amazing icons. ;) i snagged a bunch of these, but as always, i will credit you! thank you for your hard work!
Mish: TW -- Stiles PSAT Pressurehsapiens on September 28th, 2014 09:26 pm (UTC)
Flawless might be stronger than I'd term them but I appreciate your very kind words! I'm honored to be filling a folder on your hard drive. I do the same with makers' whose work inspired me and makes me happy to look at so it's a real pleasure to offer the same happiness to others! ♥ *smooches*
Joss: (spn bro hug)aravishermione on September 28th, 2014 08:23 pm (UTC)
I'm sorry to hear about your medical issues *hugs*. Hope you're feeling 100% better soon. ♥

And knowing that just makes me in complete AWE of your iconing SKILLZ!!! I love the glowy colorful awesomeness of all of them!!!! Love the "painted" effects too. Saving all of them, then have to narrow down which ones I can use. Full credit of course; you totally deserve it!!
Mish: Dean -- Young and Cockyhsapiens on September 28th, 2014 09:36 pm (UTC)
Aww, thank you! I'm sure that I will be. I have good doctors and they have impressive machines that go ping. I'm impatient to be 100% because, well, patience is my least practiced virtue. :)

I'm glad the colors + painted effect works for you! I've been having fun playing around with it. I hadn't ever used the paint textures before and I'm sure I'm not using them to their full potential but I'm learning and having fun, which is all that I ask from my hobby. That I get to meet nice people in my corner of fandom is an awesome benefit!

Thank you for your kind words. ♥

It's really very creepy. I had to keep scrolling my window up so that I couldn't see it while I was assembling the page. Malia is a cutie-pie. I hope that they develop her a little more. Heck, I want them to develop all the characters more! I hear that next season is supposed to be a real-length-season so perhaps it won't be so rushed. *hopes*

Lovely! Snagged a couple of the TW icons. Will credit. :)

Okay, I was going through your old posts and in one you said you were looking for icontests? Are you already a member of tvshowsic, character20n20, comics_ic, or 20inspirations? Those are some I watch. There's going to be a new icontest based on Arrow/Flash (I think the first round is starting). The link is on one of those comms. You may already know about them but I figured I'd give a shout :)
Mish: Avengers -- IronMan Needs A Hobbyhsapiens on September 29th, 2014 08:47 pm (UTC)
Oooooooo! I hadn't seen a couple of those! I've joined tvshowsic and comics_ic. That first one looks right up my alley and once I have some caps for the latter, perhaps I can play there, too! THANK YOU! ♥ ♥

I would love to be good enough for 20inspirations but that's an elite maker group and I don't think my skills are up to that level yet. I took a 3 year hiatus from icon-making and perhaps I might have been that level (maybe) when I left but I'm still feeling my way around at the moment. Icon making moved beyond where it was 3 years ago, not that I was at its pinnacle, and I'm missing some important compositional chops.

I've been tempted by character20n20. It seems to be a very well-run community with timely posting and good participation but...20in20s were always more fun to look at than do. I found myself churning out icons just to fill a square within a proscribed time rather than doing my best on it. I do really like the comm, though, so I've been watching it. I suspect I'll give in and sign up for it eventually because it looks like so much fun!

Thank you so much for the leads on contest comms! I have been feeling like I needed to stretch myself more. *smooches*

Wow. So beautiful! You'd swear these were made from illustrations they're so "arty".

Grabbed some of the SPN ones and thank you so much for continuing to share these over at positively_spn. :)
Mish: Dean/Sam/Bobby -- Family Don't End w/ Blhsapiens on October 1st, 2014 11:59 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you! (I think...'arty' can be good or bad. ;) ) I hope you know that it is no imposition for me to post at positively_spn. I get to contribute in a small way to the continuation of a lovely community AND I get to pimp my wares. Seems like I should be thank you *you* for the time and energy you put into making fandom a fun place to be. Thank you, bb!

YOU LIKE TEEN WOLF NOW? SO DO I. Do you have a tumblr? I am also jehnt on tumblr. I am trying to check livejournal more but that means like... once a month. I am going to go look at all your other icon updates since I see I missed a few. The last time I checked your regular journal you hadn't updated in years and I worried you had disappeared from my corner of the internets FOREVVVVERRRRRR and I would never talk to you about graphics again. Am I seeing some use of Topaz plugins on some of these?

My favorite out of these is #44. So beautiful.

So sorry to hear about your health issues - I hope you get better quickly!
