Icons; Amanda, Rose, Caroline, Lizzie for [livejournal.com profile] inspired20in20  
I'm really late with my batch for the 5th round at [livejournal.com profile] inspired20in20, as usual. But here it is! The theme was "Take Five" and I decided to make five icons each of four incredible ladies. I tried to take one lady per "medium" (book, film, tv-show, real life) and came up with Elizabeth Bennet (took Keira Knightley's movie version for illustration), Rose DeWitt Bukater, Caroline Forbes and, of course, my bb Amanda. :D (Yep, no "Atonement" icons today. I had to restrain myself from not making some this time around. ;))

So, 20 icons:
01-05 Elizabeth Bennet ("Pride and Prejudice" (2005))
06-10 Rose DeWitt Bukater ("Titanic")
11-15 Caroline Forbes ("The Vampire Diaries", all seasons)
16-20 Amanda Seyfried



Pretty ladies under the cut... )

Icons; Amanda, The Vampire Diaries (+ a few thoughts)...  
Hi my lovelies, I'm back with another batch for [livejournal.com profile] celebs20in20 (of Amanda Seyfried, because I'm that predictable) and another 20 icons of Amanda and "The Vampire Diaries". I'm pretty okay with most of the 20in20 icons, although the Category set doesn't please me that much. I really wanted to work with this new photoshoot of Amanda, because the pics were lovely; but in the end, they were hell to work with - lots of contrast, very little colour. I tried, failed and re-did all of them with textures. Yeah, still not pretty, but not as ugly as before. :S

As for "The Vampire Diaries": My love for Caroline knows no bounds, so it's mostly her. A few from Season 1, a few of her and Tyler from the latest episode (nothing really spoiler-y, though). I don't really know what to think of the last episode, so I'm not writing much. Loved it overall for the thrill of it, loved Caroline, hated really not liked Matt (although they tried so hard in the last ep; sorry show, it's not working), the Tyler twist makes me really, really nervous, everything else (Elena, Stefan, Damon, the Triangle of Doom) was blah. ;)

Okay, let's move on to the icons:
Amanda Seyfried for [livejournal.com profile] celebs20in20
01-06 - Amanda Seyfried (alternates and icons from the last challenge at [livejournal.com profile] amandastills)
07-21 - The Vampire Diaries (S1 Caroline, "The Reckoning" Caroline/Tyler)



I kind of fell for her. I don't know how anyone wouldn't because she's pretty incredible. )

Icon and rambling overload; I'm sorry.  
Okay, so this post has been in the queue for what feels like an eternity... Because of that, I'll take the liberty to tick off some topics from my to-do list. So excuse me if this post seems to be all over the place, it's just a random collection of thoughts. ;)

First of all, I watched "Never Let Me Go", which is a truly depressing movie. On a scale from 1 to "Atonement" (because let's be honest, "Atonement" is the most depressing movie. of. all. time.) I'd give it an 8, solely for Carey Mulligan's amazing performance. It was fantastic how she conveyed every single emotion through her eyes. She was beautiful to watch, as was Andrew Garfield if I may say so - they had perfect chemistry (the kids, too - and the kids' performances were great in their own right). But holy f*cking Batman, what a sad and beautiful movie. Has anyone of you guys read the book?

Secondly, I'm in the process of finding a topic for my thesis - I actually found a topic I'm quite interested in, the only thing is I have to e-mail my professor and ask him if the topic is as okay as I hope it is. I'm a bit scared he rejects it and I have to settle for something I have no real understanding of. *sigh* :S

Also, just a few quick notes on "The Vampire Diaries", because they were on my mind since the premiere: Am I the only one who doesn't know what to think of Elena? She condemns one brother for the things he's done (which is the right thing to do, of course) and totally ignores the bad things the other brother has done and does right now. Why? Your hypocrisy, I see it. Bring back Katherine and get rid of Elena, please. Also, am I getting this right: Caroline's gay dad tries to "fix" her and change her very nature, a thing she has no control over whatsoever? Shouldn't he, I don't know, know better than this? As much as I love Papa Bennet Jack Coleman, there is something not quite right here. Nevertheless, I loved HRG as Caroline's dad and I hope he will be back.
Besides that, I kind of lose interest in all the main characters. Elena is just plain stupid by now; I never really cared for Damon to begin with (although I always liked Ian Somerhalder, this is difficult for me, okay!); I don't know what the show's doing with Stefan - I never really liked him either, but that his killing innocents gets whitewashed constantly enrages me to no end; I hate Matt with a fiery passion; and where the heck is Bonnie? I adore Caroline and I'd love to see more of her and her mom and Tyler. The rest of the storylines... are rather boring right now. :S

Last but not least, a quick question that bugs me everytime I post an icon batch: Has anyone else got the problem of not knowing when exactly to post icons? (And with "when", I clearly don't mean the time of day or month.) I'm always like: "Oh well, I'm still making icons for Topic A, so the post has to wait." Which results in me never making a post, because they're too old or I don't like them anymore or I never stop iconing a certain topic/celeb. (I'm looking at you, Ms. Seyfried!)
That's why I've grown to like 20in20 challenges so much. I have to post the icons someday. I'm loving deadlines anyway and really can't live without them anymore. (Try writing a paper due "sometime". Duh, it took me nearly 3 years to finish it.)

But oh well, this time I'm posting a batch - no challenge, no deadline, still iconning these people/movies and nevertheless, a post here is! It's mainly a collection of my entries at [livejournal.com profile] amandastills with some "Titanic" and "Atonement" (of course!) icons thrown in.

Sorry for the long prologue, I will shut up now and tell you what's in the post:
01-23 - Amanda Seyfried
24-30 - Titanic (I wanted to icon a lot of Rose, but the caps were a pain (for me at least) - and I was just incapable of producing anything I liked really; so there are fewer than I wanted and they turned out worse than I imagined. Oh well...)
31-44 - Atonement (I can't get over how beautiful this movie is, so excuse the overload of posts about it! It breaks my heart everytime I watch/read it, but it's so tremendously perfect, I just can't stop...)



I am covered in skin, no one gets to come in )

Icons; Amanda, Gretchen und Caroline (und ein paar andere...)  
Oh mein Gott, ich hab Icons gemacht... oO Und tatsächlich die Muse gefunden, sie hochzuladen, in eine Tabelle zu stecken und hier zu posten... oO (Bin ich originell oder bin ich originell? ;))

Nun gut, wie gesagt: Icons. Einige davon sind schon etwas älter (die von "Doctor's Diary", ein paar von Amanda) und einige ganz frisch von meiner frischen Obsession "The Vampire Diaries" (namentlich Caroline... und Caroline/Tyler). Ja, verurteilt mich nur, ich liebe diese Serie. ;)

Das ist drin:
[10] Amanda Seyfried
[29] Doctor's Diary; Marc, Gretchen, Gretchen/Marc (das Übliche also :D)
[12] The Vampire Diaries; Caroline, Tyler/Caroline

Vorschau:


Es ist eindeutig, ich stehe auf Blondinen... )
