So I got my computer back temporarily [the power supply I'm using could cut out at any time] and I'm so happy! I've missed so many great icons this past month and being able to make some! I'm dumping the few I had gotten done last month and getting back into the groove of making stuff. I won't be able to do as much because of work but I'll do what I can!

20 icons

Doctor Who (3)

Game of Thrones (4)

Preacher (1)
Angel (2)
Lost (3)
Stranger Things (2)

I got a sudden hankering to make some textures. I've been meaning to get around to trying my hand at it, but I just never did. I ended up saving a ton of great stock pictures so expect more sets soon! (ish..I did save a lot D: lmao)

I tried to keep some variance to these so there's hopefully something for everybody! :D

Also, I'm off hiatus now, I got things done quicker than expected. whew! :P

I finished Lost around the middle of last month. I finished season 6 minus the final episode in only a few days, then had about three days in between, which I'm glad happened because blazing through it all in such a short time would have been way too much of an emotional roller coaster. lol

[rambling here]

[spoiler I guess?]I'M STILL MAD THEY KILLED OFF SUN & JIN I knew someone had to die but like, NOT THEM, ANYONE ELSE! ;______;

Adding in Vincent made Jack's last scene even sadder. THE tEARS dammit. I think that's what got me, [spoiler?]he didn't die alone ;__;

So I honestly don't know how to describe how I felt/feel now after the end. Which is weird, after I've had time to process something I usually have something to say about it, I surprisingly don't for this. It's not a negative feeling though! lol

I want more Lost. I want to know what happened to everyone after of those that survived and I want something going way back with the temple and everything I think you could do a whole show just on that alone. But it'll never happen ;___;

I'm thinking about doing a rewatch on my own so I can go slower and can immerse myself into it better and have more time to process it.
I think with this show, you need to slowly watch it over a large chunk of time otherwise I feel like it'd be the beginning and ending too close together and everything in between gets blended together and lost or forgotten. Or I'm just weird about how I watch tv, idk. Anyways, I'll probably start it again in the fall. :P


I was really challenged doing this one agh I was so drained by the final 3. x__x lol I went into detail of my inspirations of each icon below if anyone's interested in reading it!

I have some RL stuff I need to work on and get sorted out so I'm going on a semi hiatus for a while, I don't know when I'll be back here full time.

I'm going to be posting my 20muses set and doing turbo rumble but that's it for challenges and activities. Then I'll do my monthly icon round up post like I've been doing this year.

Also, I will continue modding at 10in30 and paintedpixels so I'm not totally gone! :]

See you around! ♥

This is for monstersinyou


Here's the cap you'll be working with (from 2x9).

First crop your cap like below or whatever you want, I was able to eek out 3 results which you can see here, so have fun with it! :P
Then to prep the base, sharpen to your liking and go to Image > Auto Contrast annd you have this,

Next add this gradient map, set to Subtract at 43%

Create a color fill layer and using this color #a94800 mask over her hair and set to Multiply at 51%

Download these two gradient maps; one & two

Set the first one to Hard Light at 23%

Set the second one to Exclusion at 67%

Next create a new layer and paint with black on the far right and blur it so it has a wide and soft fade out like so,

Leave on Normal and change the opacity to 46%

Create a Levels layer and change the settings to 6, 1.00, 209

Make a Brightness/Contrast layer and with Legacy selected, change the contrast to 6

Create a new layer and paint over her hair with this color #f18933 set to Overlay at 40%

Create a Vibrance layer and set to Color and then +33 and +19

Next take this color #e0ab99 and paint over her face. Set to Multiply at 42%

Then paint over the bright side of her face with a soft brush to bring out some highlights with this color #fbeeee like so,

Set to Overlay at 38%

Next with a medium grey #232323 paint in some more shadows. Set to Soft Light at 55%

Then take this color #fee8d6 and paint on the far left and blur so it has a wide fade out like below,

Set to Overlay at 58%

Finally make a new Brightness/Contrast layer and mask only her face and with Legacy selected set the Contrast to 9.

Flatten, save and you're done!
