Oh, man, what a delightful post! These are all beautiful! Snagging a few of the Marianne ones, as well as some Taming of the Shrew ones; I haven't seen that in a couple years and now I feel so compelled to watch it again as soon as humanly possible. :D

Ooh, I really like your text placement, cropping and colouring (including the b&w ones)! You've also picked interesting moments to icon.

17, 19, 33, 63, 64, 78, 137 and 138, among others, are amazing and capture something special.

Great icons! And I loved those Shakespeare Re-Told stories. Taming of the Shrew was my fave.

Oh thank you. I don't mind at all. I am pleased you like the text as I've started doing some new stuff with it recently.

Wow! These are fabulous! I love your cropping and use of textures!!! I especially adore the North&South icons and the S&S icons!

Especially 'the taming of the shrew' - you never see that in icons.

NORTH AND SOUTH: 1 the text is a bit awkward and I wish she filled more of the frame, but it might just be the text that makes it feel off. 2 THIS on the other hand, is GORGEOUS. Love the lines of the photography paper, the misty texture, and the basic crop of the cap itself. 3 she's so beautiful. Lovely b&w. 4 a little too light and the "hale" is hard to read. 5 a bit low-rez, but nice crop. 6 really lovely, love the mist and plasticine textures, the broken text, and the colouring. 7 this is GORGEEEEE. Love the deep b&w, mist texture, and frame. 8 love this plasticine texture!!! nice image too. 9 this is pretty love the colour. 10 too hard to read. 11 same, like if I didn't remember this scene I think it would be too crowded-y with all the blues and blacks and browns. 12 MY Favorite!!!!! PERFECT choice of images to cut together, fucking love the deep, brown-red colouring, and the soft cut that seps them, almost looks like a door! BEAUTIFUL. 13 nice too but love 12 more. 14 I really like this, the colour and mistiness, also the text is placed v. well. 15 a little too light? 16 love the colour and neg space 17 same!! 18 GORGEOUS colour, boxy and mist texts, animation of the figure, text blurring! 19 nice colour, the text/font is BEAUTIFULLY done! 20 whoa almost looks like a text behind him! fantab text, wish he was a bit darker though? 21 this pwns worlds, I LOVE IT, the way she fades into the shadowed letter...absolutely beautiful. 22 also perfect! love the nebular look behind her and she holds up so well against it, beaut! 23 love this one too, esp the matching colour of the font and its slight frac-blurriness. 24 another msterful frame use and the font omg this ROCKS love the deep black and white and fabulous image choice! 25 also gorgeousness, but like it with the frame more. 26 a little grainy, but the comp and their expressions and the deep black and white...just SO gorgeoussss perfecto. 27 but grainy but LOVE the green-beige neg space and the way the font is the same colour as his jacket. 28 this is stunning. simply put. love how readable she is, the colouring, the plasticine and mist textures....gore. 29 SECOND FAVORITE. love the deep shadows, hot colouring, v blurry fractured text, and crop!!! lovely. 30 way too unreadable and light. 31 also very pretty, looove the colouring and the bricky neg space, but grainyish. 32 GORGE colouring, neg space, and drama in her looking-backness. GORGEOUS! 33 THIRD FAVORITE. love the deeeeep black and white, the dramatic neg space and expression, and the blurry fractured text!!!

Oh dude I'm watching A Piece of the Action, I love it. "Don't give me those baby blues, I don't go for that whole innocent act." Because really McCoy is the most innocent looking one of them. Also I some interviews with Karl Urban, dude likes his TOS, and is ridiculously nice about fans.

PERFECTION DUDE. 90 nice colour and neg space and text but maybe sharpen her a bit. 91 cute, 92 the text makes it. 93 this is also really good, love the & and the colouring and him looking vs her not looking. 94 again sharpen her a bit, otherwise hot. 95 love the colour and image choice. 96 lol, prick attack? colour good. 97 too fuzzy. 98 hoooot colouring, but soften the text so it doesn't make the cap look blurry. 99 LOL WHAT? 100 too fuzzy. q0q love this cap and colour, but fuzzy. 102 WHO? 103? 104?

What happened to S&S, what is up with the lack of love?

the finger/finger echo (violent/seductive)
It is so indicative of their relationship it is not even funny.

69 lol i really like the ! mark for some reason! nice colour.
Because it captures how utterly mad he is.

83 how did you make the text shadow? under layer ops i guess?
Instead of stroke choose drop shadow.

96 lol, prick attack? colour good.

121 rapetastic?!!??!
vaguely so but in such a way that... oh god, just watch it... seriously do though 'cause it is amazing.

125 eisley?
Yep. You know I made a Who vid to that song?

[identity profile] forceiswithyou.livejournal.com 2009-05-24 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
I'm only doing S/S if you can tell it doesn't have spoilers! Which I kinda doubt, so sorry babe?

Ohhh that's right, I think you posted that Who vid! Great song, so Romantic.

...first of all, YOU HAVEN'T READ AND DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENS IN SENSE & SENSIBILITY!!!!! Second of all, there aren't any spoilers, you would've already been spoiled from my first post about ti 'casue all that comes out is the ships, and that is told in the first 50 pages, Emma is the only one you can be properly spoiled for in terms of that. So yeah, go check, I don't even get how one could be spoiled for Austen.
