Icon-making resources post

I've been working on an icon post or two over the last few days, but I still don't trust LJ enough to try to post them. The last four times I've tried I ended up uploading 45 icons by hand (i.e. writing down all the html codes one by one to add each picture), only to have it freeze and crash just when I was done. All four times...

So instead I decided to get something else done. I've found a few websites with cool screencaps and I've been using them to make some of the new icons. I figure before I forget where I got them, I should make a sort of "Resources post", so everyone can know where I got the pics.

From now on, every time I get pictures from specific websites (rather than just random websites from Google images) I'll write them down here. For organization purposes, TV shows/movies will be listed alphabetically, as will individual websites within each category.

Today's quote is...

"We live in a country where 46 million uninsured people cannot get basic medical care, while the rest of us spend a billion dollars a year on baldness remedies. It is not just the inequity here that is so impressive. It is the fact that we have gotten so accustomed to the inequity that we do not see it as obscene." Arthur Caplan.

It doesn't exactly apply to my country or to our health system, but it's a good example of unfair situations that happen all around the world. People starve and die of malaria in Africa, while pharmaceutical companies spend millions researching new medications for diabetes and obesity. Some children have to leave school and get jobs to help support their families, while other people walk around with diamond-encrusted watches.

This is not a post to rant about the unfairness of the world! This is just me sharing a quote that I found inspirational.


And now I'm off to bed, because tomorrow there is more stuff to be studied!

ICON POST

It's sooo late here, but I really wanted to get these up today.

98 icons from 4 different shows: Body of Proof (for mcgarrygirl78 ), The Mentalist, Stargate SG-1 and Fringe. I don't think they're the best I've ever made, but they're not horrible, either...
Possible spoiler alert! Some of the icons from Fringe were made using screencaps of recent episodes, namely 3x20 (6:02 AM EST) and 3x21 (The Last Sam Weiss). If you haven't watched either of these episodes and don't want to be spoiled, avoid the bottom of this post. They're right after the SG-1 icons, but I'll leave some space between them anyway.

ICON POST

And here is yet another icon post!


This time it's 48 icons from 8 different shows (two of which you won't recognize unless you're from Portugal), plus a random icon of Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds because I saw the picture and thought it was pretty... :)

ICON POST (1/2)

OK, here's a new icon post. I'm making the most of these days because it will not be long at all before my school work becomes overwhelming again. I'm going to have so many assignments this semester, it's not even funny... But that's beside the point right now!

Again, this post is multi-fandom. Again, some of these icons were made by request for mcgarrygirl78 . That means that everything pertaining to "Antonia's Line" and "Criminal Minds" will require her authorization to be snagged. "Hawaii 5-0" icons are 100% free for grabs.
Comments and credit would be much appreciated, but I'm not hunting anyone down for not giving either.

I hope you enjoy!

ICON POST (2/2)

Ok, so  here's the second part of my icon post. It's a few days late, but everyone knows RL takes precedence over everything else.

This is a multi-fandom post (Criminal Minds, Twilight, Stargate SG-1 and a few miscellaneous icons). Most of the pictures I used (if not all) were Googled; I don't think I got any of them from any screencap website/database. However, if you think any of the pics here belong to you, let me know and I'll be more than happy to give proper credit!

All the icons are free for grabs. The differences between some of them may be subtle, but no two icons are exactly the same! Comments and credit would be much appreciated, but it's not like I'm going to hunt anyone down for not giving either...

I hope you enjoy!

ICON POST (1/2)

Here it is, my very first icon post! This should have been up hours ago...

Just so everyone knows, my icons are fairly simple; I don't use textures, brushes, etc. Also, a few of them look very similar. That's because I like to let people choose what they like for themselves.

All of the icons in this batch were made especially for the awesome mcgarrygirl78 , so permission for anyone else to use them will have to come from her! I will be posting another batch of icons that we will be 100% free for grabs later.
