About me and my icons - taking requests - rabecka
About me and my icons - taking requests
So... I've been lurking and reading for a while now, mostly Torchwood and Doctor Who fics. Figure it's time to give something back. And, well, I'm no writer, but I AM good with images. Ergo, an icon site. Please credit...

So far, I'm getting most of my screencaps from:
marishna (lots of fandoms, zipped collections)
Season 1,2 dvds, using VideoLAN

I take requests, especially from writers. See details under the cut.

If you want some custom icons for your fic, let me know. Turn around depends on how easy or hard the request is. Of course, if it interests me, your odds improve...  FTR, I rather like icons that are instantly recognizable as opposed to generic. They're probably of less general use, but fun for targeting fics of an episode.

1. You can give me a link to a good quality screencap.

1.  I have to find the screencap, but the quality is good when I find it.
2. You provide the screencap, but it needs some work. I can do a lot with dim and/or off color images. Shots that are out of focus are impossible.

1. Really dark images. Sometimes I can recover them, but it takes work. You can ask...
2. Manips - moving people around, adding stuff, etc. Text is not a problem.

Ooo, I've been looking for someone to do icons for me (from my fics and otherwise) for a while. I know nothing about their construction or what you would need. I'll have to go through my stuff and see what I want, then I'll post a proper request. Thank you for the generous offer!

Well, hey, you've given me plenty of pleasure with your fics. Took me a few minutes to link you with ladyharkness on Teaspoon, but I knew I'd read your stuff when I peeked at your LJ site. So request away, and I'll see what I can do.

If you join dj_capslock you will not be disappointed. I use both the sites you listed above for my screencaps too but the cappers at dj_capslock have much bigger caps which is sometimes helpful.
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 2nd, 2008 07:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I think I'll be using it a lot. It's much quicker for me to download the collections and then go thru them on my own system, then to step thru thousands of screencaps online.

This is the un!happy!face I was talking about. Though I never know about captions. Hmmm.

I also (can't believe I) don't have a Ten icon. I would like something where he's smiling with self-satisfaction, like he usually does when commenting on his own - or other people's - brilliance. But I can't find a picture that I like. :/

rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 3rd, 2008 08:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah. Having all the screencaps online is fantastic, but it takes an incredible amount of time to go thru them. I figure I'm going to work on one episode at a time, as the mood (and available time) takes me, except for specific requests. I'll keep an eye out for a Ten icon, but by all means, let me know if you find one.

Oh dear. I fear I have found my new icon supplier! I love the colouring on your Something Borrowed samples and am looking forward to using as many of your icons as I can!

*Rushes off to start saving*
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 5th, 2008 10:06 am (UTC) (Link)
Great. I'm really looking forward to seeing them show up in posts.

May I please make an icon request?

It's really hard to find decent Tosh icons. I don't need any particular episode, just a decent variety.
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 7th, 2008 01:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sure. I like Tosh also, so I try to keep an eye out for good ones as I work thru an episode. I expect that Greeks Bearing Gifts, Last Man Standing and Adam should yield a lot. I'm going to be working on Journey's End next, but I can do one of the Tosh heavy ones after that.

Right now, you can find some good ones in the Something Borrowed collection, and a battered Tosh in Fragments.

I would love to see some Icons of Ianto from the episode SLEEPER - I love him in RED in that episode. I am trying to collect icons that represent an emotion like; guilty, happy, contemplating, embarrassed, worried, scared, sad, etc. kinda of mood related...so anything like that would be great. Not gonna use them for a mood theme - just want them for responding to fics.

Your stuff is great so anything you do I am going to be looking at.
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 12th, 2008 05:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. I posted a few Ianto icons from Sleeper - there'll be more when I eventually do that episode. It's in the topmost entry, under the cut "Requested icons...".

Oh, that's brilliant. Sorry not to reply sooner but I have a house guest right now - the wonderful DW fan writer aibhinn!

I'd love to friend you if I may and keep you on file.
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 20th, 2008 10:19 am (UTC) (Link)
Thanks. For some reason, the second icon (everything B&W except the suits) didn't show up - it's fixed now. And sure, go ahead and friend me.

Oh to have some decent PC Andy pics! I am writing him over on insane journal in an RPG, and am limited with the horrid pics I've made myself. pc_andy on insane journal.

Have you any of this adorable guy who just wants to play, too?

rabecka From: rabecka Date: August 1st, 2008 01:19 am (UTC) (Link)
You're in luck. I made screencaps from End of Days and Everything Changes earlier this week. Both episodes have several screencaps of Andy. I'll make some for you in the next few days.

I'm not familiar with the requirements for insane journal. Are the icons I post here OK, or do you need a different format?
grlindirtyshirt From: grlindirtyshirt Date: August 1st, 2008 05:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
Excellent icons. I really like the sad face Master.

And hooray for PC Andy! I've been doing loads of Andy graphics.
Question though, do you still have the caps for the 2nd and 3rd Andy icons? And if you do, might you be willing to share them? It's just they don't look like any I've got from TW, so I was curious what they're from.
rabecka From: rabecka Date: August 1st, 2008 07:40 pm (UTC) (Link)
The first 3 icons are from episode 1, Everything Changes. I have the orig cap for icon 3, but only an already manipulated image for icon 2. I don't mind sharing them, but they're bmp files, and for some reason they don't seem to upload to my scrapbook (LJ newbie here...). Is there somewhere I can send them to you?

BTW, I do my own screencaps, using fraps, cause I can get better quality without the jpg compression. Am eagerly awaiting season 2 dvds in the US.

snaggled pc Andy icons cause they rock

thanks, took a Myfanwy, PC Andy and Ianto on his own - these are great

rabecka From: rabecka Date: January 30th, 2009 09:16 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're welcome. I know you got to this message from a reply I left on your LJ. Don't know if you checked out the rest of the site, but it's almost all icon posts, by episode. If there's anything else you're looking for, poke around, and feel free to ask if you don't find something you want.

The "he is very handsome" one is fantastic!! XD I have a request... one of those Andy icons w/ "Captain Andy" written on it. It's from S1's blooper reel, and every time I see him I think that in my head. Whadda think?
rabecka From: rabecka Date: July 21st, 2009 02:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Sure, sounds like fun. It might be a few days, though. RL is busy... Do you happen to remember where that "Captain Andy" is on the DVDs - I'd like to take a look, cause I don't remember it.

Lovely! I'm snagging several and will credit when used. Love Myfanwy!

Um... I think this may have been meant for someone else?
hitchin From: hitchin Date: September 18th, 2010 03:39 am (UTC) (Link)
I've taken a few icons from around your journal. They're fab!
hitchin From: hitchin Date: September 18th, 2010 03:43 am (UTC) (Link)
Also, if I could make a request for some icons from "Cyberwoman" (1x04 iirc?) that would be awesome! I don't have any particular scene(s) in mind. I just love that episode and the journey/conflict Ianto goes through.
