Trawling through all the Sherlock icons posts I had bookmarked over the past goodness knows how many months, and slowly adding to my collection *points to current icon*. What I'm still looking for is a good animated version of this, from A Scandal in Belgravia:



Sadly the ones I have found so far are either too small (#009 and 010), or too short/jerky (#52)! *sigh* If any of my fellow Sherlock/Benedict Cumberbatch fans happen to come across a good version, please point it out to me? Thanks a lot!
ourdramaqueen: (sherlock lust definition)
I made some Sherlock icons and thought I'd share, in case some of my flist are interested. Not that you can't find much nicer ones on the various Sherlock communities that seem to be spreading like wildfire here on LJ, but anyway - feel free to snag. :)

17 icons behind the cut )

I believe several people on the my flist would love to get more icons, independent of their account level - well now you can: LJ finally offers A la carte icons/userpics that anyone can buy, no matter if you have a Basic, Plus, Paid or Permanent account!

Of course I first need to use up my existing icon spaces... the big question is just when will I find the time and inspiration to actually create some new ones! Don't hold your breath, dear flist...
ourdramaqueen: (naughty girl)
I now (since getting a Permanent account) have the maximum of available icon spaces (197) and only had 118 filled so far. Today I finally spent some time on filling a few of these additional spaces. I've recently discovered Spanish artist Victoria Frances, and turned a few of her gorgeous pictures into icons. One of which being *points to icon*. The rest are these three:

Isn't her art gorgeous?! The picture that had caught my eye originally was this one, which obviously was the basis for the last icon above:

[livejournal.com profile] serenitysangel might know why, despite the dress being red instead of green. ;)

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

[livejournal.com profile] celtprincess13 wanted to know about these five: )

Comment if you'd like me to pick five of your icons, or if you're curious about other icons of mine. I can't promise how quickly I'll reply, but I'll try my best. :)



I hope everyone had a lovely (Easter) weekend! Mine was quiet. I didn't do half the things I had wanted to, didn't watch half the DVDs and downloads I wanted to, and didn't get as much good sleep as I would have needed, though it was better than was usual of late.

The DVDs/downloads I did watch were Elizabeth: The Golden Age (download), Sunshine (download), and L'Homme Blessé (DVD) featuring Vittorio Mezzogiorno. He played Arjuna in Peter Brook's Mahabharata, which is where I discovered him. I caught L'Homme Blessé on TV not much later on, but only just now got around to get the DVD. I also finally found DVDs of his two seasons on La Piovra - the legendary Italian mafia series from back in about the late 80s/early 90s. Well, I had found DVDs on Amazon Germany a while ago already, but they only contain the German language track, not the original Italian - WTF?! Thank goodness I now saw some Dutch (I think) DVD sets on eBay for a good price. Hope the seller can send them off soon! While checking his IMDB entry, I realised that it's been 14 years already since Vittorio left us. Incredible. He was a wonderful actor.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age was visually amazing and of course Cate is magnificent as always, and Clive Owen very dashing as Walter Raleigh. Also nice to see Geoffrey Rush again.

[livejournal.com profile] samena will be happy to hear that I loved Sunshine. Very impressive film with a good cast, and wonder of wonders, I wasn't creeped out by Cillian Murphy as much as I usually am by photos of him. Maybe it helped that his hair usually obscured his cheekbones at least a little. :) I do think it's the combination of big eyes, extremely prominent/high cheekbones, and big lips that creeps me out - it just makes him look... freaky.

From the new photoshoot in Spain's NEO2 magazine. How could I resist?! As usual, nothing too fancy but maybe you like one or two, so feel free to snag. Credit is nice. There may or may not be more.

Here's to the icons )


Err, since I'm posting icons - I recently made a few of that scene in the Season 2 opener of Torchwood... :)

Captain Jack and Captain John met up in a bar... )
ourdramaqueen: (danny trejo not to be messed with)
If you didn't then you either didn't read my LJ very often or thoroughly lately, or don't know me very well. Or both. ;)

I must be hormonal today or something - first I cried at The House of Flying Daggers - You were right [livejournal.com profile] ladysunrope, it's amazing! - and then I teared up during Chocolat (on TV, dubbed), during the scene after the birthday party (not to name spoilers) - which I've never done before. How very silly, heh.
ourdramaqueen: (Default)
Yup, you probably guessed it - some Blood Ties icons, concentrating on Henry of course. :) I've put three behind a cut because they were taken from some (action) moments from episodes 3 (#3) and 8 respectively (#4 and #5), though taken out of context, they shouldn't really spoil anything. Just a warning - the last one in particular may cause spontaneous combustion... *fans self*

It's a lovely spring day again here, though a little cooler than yesterday. I hope those of you who got snow out of the blue will soon be rid of it again!


I have a little offering for [livejournal.com profile] mews1945, inspired by her wonderful story "Of A Hobbit And A King", which I recently reread. The end predictably had me in tears again, and more importantly, inspired my muse. Mews, I hope you'll like this illustration, even though it comes nowhere near to the beauty of your story!




Also, I bring icons - a few simple ones I made using my pictures from Hobbiton. Freel free to snag, credit is nice.

1. 2. 3. 4.


Now I just need to decide which one to use myself... :)
ourdramaqueen: (lij day zero hurt)
All right - here they are.

First off, two variations of the same design, featuring Joaquin Phoenix. These are the ones I already had but forgot to upload.

The following group of wallpaper and icons are all based on this utterly amazing picture that [livejournal.com profile] bunniewabbit found in her never-ending search for Elijah goodness. We are SO lucky she shares with us! ♥ Both pictures in that entry seem to be from a promo shoot for Elijah's upcoming film Day Zero, and knowing some things about the film and Elijah's character, the lyrics of "Hurt" (originally by Nine Inch Nails, famously covered by Johnny Cash) just felt perfect to use with this picture. Since the full lyrics aren't legible on the wall itself (intentionally), here's a link to them for those interested. Like I said in last night's entry, I'm quite proud of this wall, so I hope you'll like it too! But enough rambling, here it is, with matching icons:

Eeeeeeeeeeeeh LOST IS BACK!!!!! If episode 3 of season 3 is an indication of things to come, omg season 3 will soooo blow season 1 out of the water! *hopes*

My wireless is back, yay! Turns out it actually wasn't the router itself, but the transformer box on the cable that was fried. So now I have a backup router, and hopefully this new cable/transformer box will hold longer than the old one - I mean, a little over two years, come on!

The only fly in the ointment (apart from the fact that I slept about oh, 4 hours last night even though I was really tired): two things, closely related, that should be moving, aren't. *checks again* Nope. *sigh* Paaaaaatience young Padawan, patience! *eats around fly*

I'm sure there were several other things I meant to post about, but Brain has run off once again. Should you see it, please send it back to me by priority mail, thanks. ;)

In the meantime, I neeeed your help because I cannot decide between these three icon variations: )
ourdramaqueen: (elfquest sunlight and shadow)
I actually made these a while ago but didn't upload for various reasons. The icon I'm using is of two lead characters from one of my most favourite comic series, Elfquest. I have the full print on the wall above my bed's headboard. :)

And this one: Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting has a little story behind it. I downloaded a documentary about Johnny Cash, The Last Great American, which was made not too long ago, after his death. And towards the end they played what I think was the entire video for his song "Hurt" - written by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails (and possibly even recorded by them originally?). And oh God, that video is devastating. It's basically a look back at his life, and to see old clips of him juxtaposed with him being so frail at the time of the shoot, and in combination with the lyrics... His daughter Roseanne said that her sister had seen it before her and just told her, "Be careful." And she watched it with Johnny and June, and she just broke down and sobbed while June held her. Hell I already did! I then found this picture, and it so reminds me of that video... I just had to icon it. *sad smile*

But on to related, yet more cheerful icons - Joaquin in Walk the Line, from the scene where Johnny hears his first single playing somewhere in the neighbourhood in the night, and takes baby Roseanne out to listen to it. *melts into puddle of goo* Feel free to grab yadda yadda. :)

I heard there are more photos from this Cannes photoshoot out there, but it seems they're still all behind locked doors! So in the meantime, here are a few icons I made with the pictures that were available to me - as you can see I was quite inspired! Enjoy and feel free to grab as usual!
