sorry. not in this batch. but definitely for the next one, sure! =]
i've planned two separate holiday batches, just because i had too many icons to fit into one post for my liking. plus, i have a ton of different fandoms i'm iconing for.

so yesh. i'll definitely do that for part 2.
12|14|06 - 02:38 (UTC)
cute. saving 40 & 41.
12|14|06 - 03:34 (UTC)

who says it can't be christmas all-year-round? =D well, i suppose that would be kinda dorky and unrealistic, but psh. the point is that christmas is happy and cute and insanely fun to icon. i swear i'm going to use a christmas icon in the middle of july. cuz i'm cool like that, yup. haha, what a weirdo.

Awesome, awesome XF icons! Love!
12|14|06 - 04:27 (UTC)
Becca...Becca? Is that you?
Did you get a new screen name??!

*eye twitches*

Or am I imagining silly things?
12|14|06 - 04:49 (UTC)
Snagging 9, 20, and 21.

(so totally supposed to be studying right now, but your icons were too much to resist. lol)
12|14|06 - 04:56 (UTC)
tsk tsk. procrastinating is no way to ace those exams coming up. ;)
like i should be talking, lol!

glad you like them! thinking of my icons being a temptation kind of gets me giddy inside. makes me feel a bit rebelious almost. haha.

12|14|06 - 04:50 (UTC)
Beautiful icons! :D I'm gonna save this post to memories so I can snag some later.

Idina = the epitome of beauty, for sure. I love her hair like that!
12|14|06 - 04:58 (UTC)
She most definitely is! I know, her hair is very flattering like that. I wish she'd go back to the swing bang though, but I guess that's not European enough for her. ;) The swing bang is such an emo teenager thing in America nowadays. =]

Thanks, btw. I'm all warm and fuzzy now. *grins*
12|14|06 - 05:22 (UTC)
awww these are so cute! I love the ones of MS with the santa hats. and the icons from Emily!
12|14|06 - 05:26 (UTC)
Thank you. =] Santa hats on any of my fandoms makes me happy, lol. Btw, I believe I used one or two caps from LadyLondon, so just to let you know, I should be updating my resources soon.
12|14|06 - 05:23 (UTC)

12|14|06 - 12:00 (UTC)
FINALLY new icons from you, Justine :) That makes me very happy :]

Your Christmas icons are so cute! :) The most I love #03 and #06, because those santa hats are fitted perfectly. Seriously, if I hadn't knew, #06 is a manip, I would have thought, that GA&DD were in those hats for real :P I also adore #05 - though they don't have santa hats, it's still very christmas-icon ;) Probably because of this wonderful and intensive redness.

From non-santa-hats icons...
I love #11. I really like this kind of design - someone's profile and a big text on it ;) Colors on #14 are awesome - I can almost feel warmth of this icon :) Next one is #17 - I don't know, what you did in here, but the play of light on this one is just beautiful. Also I really like #20 - it's such a touching capture, them together and Emily's reflection.
And the last, but definitely not the least, #27 :) As I've told you earlier, I'm taking this one with me :) I like this photo, though sometimes I think it's just too sentimental, but, then again - that was convention of this session, right? ;) Anyway, it looks like you really love this particular texture :> It's good, because you're using it with great feeling :)

Oh, and one thing more - you called this post "part 1". Does it mean, there's gonna be "part 2" also? :>
12|17|06 - 04:22 (UTC)
Thanks bunches! Sorry it took me so long to reply. I've been down in the dumps with a nasty cold lately, so I haven't totally been up to staring at a computer screen. ;)

You actually like #03? Ahhh. I HATE that one. It almost didn't make it to the batch, but I decided to add it anyways so I would come out with an even number of icons. :p I'm special like that, lol. And I'm glad that you're satisfied with my manipulation. That's probably one of my favorite icons from this batch. :]

I love the design technique for #11! I saw it somewhere on good_fanicons and just drooling. I think I'll be using it often, just because there are quite a few profile shots of Mulder and Scully out there. For #17 I used a black and white gradient map set on overlay. It's a nice trick to bring out light or to shadow it.

About my overused texture, you're right - I'M IN LOVE WITH IT. You have to tell me to stop using it, otherwise I'm probably going to be using it for the rest of my life. Lol. And then people would stop even looking at my icons, because they'd become so predictable. :p I personally just ADORE that photo. It's so...different, so un-MS, that I just fell in love with it right away. The photo in it's entirety is amazing actually, and I never feel like something as small as an icon can capture quite well enough. I'm honored you snagged it. :]

You're exactly right - there will definitely be a "part 2." That post is probably going to feature more larger artworks for Christmas, and I'll publish it closer to Christmas. I'm also hoping to include a Christmas music video and hopefully part of my Christmas WIP [that no one really knows about yet]. I'm very excited for that post!

Thanks for dropping a line. Now, Sylly ;], when am I going to be *blessed* with some icons from YOU? :D
12|14|06 - 12:04 (UTC)
wow, cool icons, christmas and otherwise =)

oh, and could you please tell me what pics you used for #24?
12|17|06 - 04:23 (UTC)
Thanks so much! I actually capped those myself, but ladylondon.com has some nice images from that episode - they just weren't quite clear enough for myself. ;] I'm a very picky person.
