Yes! You did it! Finally! *jumps around with joy*

And dudette... these are awesome... and and and ... you've used grunge textures! Pretty! See how great the Icons turn out with them? *g* No.s 6, 7 and 30... mmmm.... yummy!
(I'm still working on my Icons... and you've already posted most of them. LOL But yours are so much prettier...)

Your colouring is the best I've seen so far, so bright and I love how you can achieve this sharpness and blurriness at the same time, that is really very pretty... (how do you do this? ;-)

And I love you for not using so much text. These Icons stand out for themselves and don't need text. The skillfull cropping does it all for himself.
What more can I say? Oh... I forgot... Bobby! :D

Heartbreaking ones: 38, 62 and 70. *sob*

Thank you for sharing! ♥

*falls off chair gripped by a humangous fit of laughter by your icon* That's made of awesome! And you sure know how to torture us here in showing it off...I want to see your icon post so bad right now!!

you've used grunge textures!
Yes, I so wanted to use your textures for a few weeks now and finally put them to use. Love these by the way, and I especially liked these kinda striped faded newspaper textures and abrasions!

I love how you can achieve this sharpness and blurriness at the same time
Aww, thanks. I actually always have to struggle a lot with the coloring because every icon is different and some stuff comes out totally not as I want. I saw this one icon post the other day. It was from 2x01 and all icons were done in a uniform coloring and it worked just great on all of them, still trying to figure out how they do this, huh.
As for blur and sharpness, I usually just crop the cap and leave it alone until after I'm done with the coloring and all other layers. Then I get back to the base and use the unsharp mask on it (which needs adjusting with every icon). Usually it pretty much rather adds contrast than making the pic look too pixelated. I like to think of it as the light version of simply sharpening the image once. Then I use the blur tool and go over the parts I want softened. Yeah, that's about all.

Oh... I forgot... Bobby! :D
LOL, we have to give him some tribute for saving what's left of the Impala and my favorite TV laptop *whimper* But seriously, that car is beyond repair *RIP, Metallicar*

Thanks for this detailed feedback, always very much appreciated. Looking forward to seeing your 2x01 icons soon!

Wow awesome job!! you totally captured the best parts of the episode and 70# is the saddest scene ever *wipes tear from eye* beautifully done =)
ヴェレーナ: Dean ligh blue - Hook Manongiara on October 3rd, 2006 07:03 pm (UTC)
Thanks! That scene still sends shiver down my spine, so tragic. The coffee cup staying upright contributed a lot to that feeling. And the weirdest part is that I could swear I hear Sam screaming for help so loud every time I watch that scene even though they muted it, of course. They totally nailed that shot.

Oh I love these. #10 is one awesome cropping and #30 looks like it's...raining, if you know what I mean. And I love how you put the Supernatural heading thingie at the top :D This episode was just pure genius, two more days...two more days :)

Thank so much ♥ that lovely 'rainy effect' is achieved with very neat black&white textures by justfreefallin

This episode was just pure genius, two more days
It was totally amazing and if they keep that level up it's going to be one hell of a great season... 3 more days over here LOL. The next episode looks quite scary too.
