Icons! (Saiyuki. Gravitation, misc.)

I've had a couple of requests for icons lately, so I decided the easiest was just to do another icon post. (And that's why some of these may look familiar from my posts about the place ... .) Samples:

Saiyuki
1 2 3
4 5 6
 
7 8 9
10 11 12
13 14 15
16 17 18
19 20 21
Gravitation
22 23 24
 
25 26  
Misc. Requests
 
27 28  

All the usual warnings: download 'em onto your own system, don't link directly to my poor account, please credit.

Some of the resources used: fonts from www.dafont.com, textures from colorfilter, borders from spiritsighs and endlessdeep; snarky slogans from www.nancybuttons.com. All manga-related artwork is from the respective mangaka; Code Monkey from singer Jonathan Coulton's site (and of course, in honor of his song of that name); STFU logo from ThinkGeek.

Artists for song lyrics referenced: (8) Paul Simon; (17) U2; (19) Carrie Newcomer; (21) Billy Joel.

Text on (14): James Thurber, The 13 Clocks.

Notes: The Gravitation icons were a project for a friend - she picked one (not here) to be hers specially. Most of the Saiyuki ones were made for my own use originally, but the Yaone icon and several of the Gaiden ones are new for this post. The two misc. were made in response to ideas from The Young Lady. Don't say I never do anything for you!   XD

Previous icon post here had more Saiyuki; also Samurai Deeper Kyo, Bleach, Fruits Basket, and Blade of the Immortal.

Okay, so I pretty much ganked all the Saiyuki icons that you put up here. These are fantastic!

I will definitely credit if I use some. <3

I'm glad you like them! I enjoy the challenge of fitting meaningful text and pix in the 100 x 100 format - it's like doing crossword puzzles with art ... .

#15 is pure awesome. # 18 is right behind it. ^_^

Hee, the text on both of those was from www.nancybuttons.com. I often go there for a quick laugh, and when I saw the "Humanity" one, I thought "Hmm, that sounds like Sanzo" and started making icons from her stuff.

Nii's so not my character but I can't pass up a Thirteen Clocks reference. Ganked and will credit, with thanks.

I can't stand Nii, but he gets discussed enough that I decided I needed an icon for him. And I loveThe 13 Clocks - the poetry of its prose is amazing. "It moves about the room like monkeys and like shadows ... ."

Grabbed #21.. will credit.. thank you!! Nice Yaone ones are very hard to find. Beautiful

I've noticed the same thing! I tried to do one of her with her first-aid box, but it's going to require more photomanipulation than I had time at that point - I'll have to do something with the box and her hands and arms so she's holding it nearer her face. I'm glad you like this one, in the meantime.

Will be sure to credit.
Thank you!

i LOVE all the Saiyuki ones, but i have to admit: pet peeve is my favorite. :D

Gravitation is such bizarre brain candy ... the friend for whom I made the icons sees a resemblance between Eiri and Sanzo (especially when they both have their specs on). I can't say she's wrong, but that's a pretty cracky connection!

Hehehe,*rubs hands* I'm so glad you put these up! :D You already know my faves. I already had 3,5,6,12 and 13 on my computer just waiting for you to post 'em. Now I think I must add 7 & 18 to my collection! Yes, Yes I am an icon whore! :)


Have you ever made any Hakuryuu icons?
chomiji
Mar. 31st, 2008 09:31 pm (UTC)

Just find me some Hakuryuu art you like, and I'll make you an icon or two - I like making them. I could probably pull him out of one of the group shots on Aerthereality Gallery or MiniTokyo ... hmmm. I'll see what I can do, but sing out if you spot a scan that has a particularly good shot of him.

These are great!

Love #3, 5, 7, 10 & 15.

#28 is ace as well. :)

I'm glad you like them! (Yes, #28 very sneaky ... like ninja!   XD  )

Yes, that's about where I am with my own icons! Part of the reason I make them for other people is I quickly realized I was using up all my slots.

But please, come back as often as you like ... .

These are all beautiful! And I adored the tongue-in-cheek humor that came through with some of the sayings... they just fit the characters too well. I've snagged all the gravi ones and most of the Saiyuki ones. I especially loved the Goku kitten, Hakkai-intel and The Sanzou Idiot ones... oh and the Kenren party... LoL. Very original! Thank-you for sharing your work and I will be sure to credit when used!

Oh, so glad glad you liked them! Those you specified feature the wit and wisdom of 20+ years of science fiction and fantasy fans, captured by the nancybuttons lady (she does custom buttons as well, and saves the best slogans to become part of her catalog). Once I'd found one for Sanzo, I had to go find sayings for the others too, of course.

Also, I stole two of your Hakkai icons.

I'm glad that you liked them! Please, take any that appeal to you.

I know this is an old post, but I've just discovered your icons, and omg, so much win. <3<3<3
I really love these, especially the Saiyuki ones. Also many others from other icon posts. And from your userpics.
5, 6, 14, 15, 16, 18...awesome. XD
*cough* I'll try to pull out of fangirl mode now :P

Aww, I'm so happy you like them!

I just put up a new icon post today, mostly fall-themed icons, including some more Saiyuki.

Please feel free to adopt any that you want to use ... if you want to use some of my private ones, just ask. I feel careful about only a couple of them.

Snagged #6, #12, & #13. Naturally, I'll credit you. the Sanzo ones are brilliant, and Hakkai is delicious.
chomiji
Sep. 23rd, 2008 09:02 pm (UTC)

It's a strange thing about Sanzo ... he's not my favorite character, or even the #2 (those are Gojyo and Hakkai), but sometimes it's all too easy to identify with his viewpoint, especially when other people are being a pain!

I'm glad you're enjoying the icons!
