Mistakes Were Made


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
So, I don't know how to begin this. I don't know how to make a middle or end, either. I'm sure that no matter what I say, I'm going to fudge it up somehow, so try to bear with me here and understand that I'm a ridiculously fragile person and I cover that up with vehement defensiveness as if doing so were a professional sport. I'm going to do my best here to drop that cover, but feeling vulnerable is terrifying - especially when I feel like everyone suddenly hates me and I might as well just quit making icons entirely.

An important message. )

And that's what leads me here: I did something incredibly insensitive and I am sorry for not thinking about others and your friend pages. I'm sorry for not reaching out to start a dialogue - for not understanding why a harsh knee-jerk reaction might happen - and for not having the good sense to realize that if it's someone I know the general public won't wish to see then I shouldn't be posting the set on a public community, no matter how small.

I genuinely hope that those hurt by my poor choices can find it in their hearts to forgive me and reconsider exiling me, because honestly making icons is one of the very few things which brings me joy anymore and not only do I not want to lose that but I want to ensure that from now forward I'll be mindful to avoid posting icon sets which could cause anguish in others because that's not what I want. That isn't who I am and it isn't who I want to be; I want people to see what I create and feel happy, not feel marginalized or hated or otherwise gross.

So... yeah. I guess that's everything. I welcome dialogue with anyone involved and even those looking at the sidelines. Comments are screened because I'm terrified of feeling attacked, but I promise that I will respond to everyone and my PM box is open if you'd rather just use that.

Happy (late) birthday to my parabatai! You're awesome and I love you, sister from another mister. Thanks for everything you've done to make me smile over the past... decade, wow. Here's hoping we have many more years in us as friends and, ideally, also as writing partners. We've built some of the most amazing worlds and characters together, and you've enriched my life in ways I'd have never believed possible back when we first met. So, thank you for being part of my life and thank you for putting up with all my quirks and fixations from day to day. Stay gold, bb. You mean the world to me.

Seán McLoughlin (Jacksepticeye) Pt. 2/2 [290 Icons]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
More Jackaboy? More Jackaboy! Here's the second half of the most adorable green-haired guy since Spike Spiegel, all sourced from Seán's Instagram. (Some of these have yellow or teal hair, but sshhh that's a secret.)

High fives all around!

Seán McLoughlin (Jacksepticeye) Pt. 1/2 [292 Icons]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
Top of the morning to ya, laddies! I needed some easier icons to make for a little while, so I bring to you a lovely Irishman whose videos have been helping me a lot lately. These come from his Instagram and feature the dyed hair he had a while back - usually green, but occasionally yellow or teal.


I'm so happy that you're not afraid to be who you are, because that's one of the most important things a person has to overcome. )

Cole Sprouse in Riverdale 3x04 Pt. 2/2 [215 Icons]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
This here's the second and final part of Cole Sprouse as FP Jones II FP Jones Jr. in Riverdale 3.04: The Midnight Club. These didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped, thanks in large part to the horrible colouring and shadows in most of these scenes, but I think I'm happy with the outcome overall.

Made for [info]truebornstark's request/suggestion. Thanks for the patience and being a joy to work with here! ♥

Cole Sprouse in Riverdale 3x04 Pt. 1/2 [216 Icons]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
Here's part one of two featuring Cole Sprouse in Riverdale 3.04: The Midnight Club as FP Jones Jr. (That's canon now, apparently, but I'm stubborn and stuck in my ways so I'm keeping the character tag as FP Jones II. You guys know who it means.) Epic kudos to the costume department for a very convincing transformation into bb Skeet Ulrich.

Made upon request/suggestion for [info]truebornstark, but of course free for anyone to use. These took absolutely forever to get right, especially since I've been sick af lately, but I think overall I'm happy with how these turned out. I especially love this half of the set, which didn't give me anywhere near the amount of trouble as the atrocious lighting and colouring in the second half.


Nothing serious. You know, just messing around, which she was cool with. )

Roswell, New Mexico Posters [09 Icons]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
I did a thing using the fancified posters I made. Here's one icon for each of the main characters in Roswell, New Mexico because I'm all for sharing the love of this show.


Alien pods not included. Sorry, folks. )

Roswell, New Mexico Graphics [09 Profile/Poster Images]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
This began with Alex and Michael, whose posters I fancified for journal layouts. (For usage examples, check out [info]alexmanes and [info]mikeguerin.) Then, it branched out into my incessant need to be a completionist and became an entire set of posters/graphics. I almost didn't share them, but I don't have muses for all these characters and there's no sense hoarding the pretties when maybe someone else can get use out of them.

So... here's one poster each for the main characters of Roswell, New Mexico, styled in sort of a paint brush reveal effect - for lack of better explanation. The images are 400x563 and ~500kb each, generally slightly less.

For the original promo posters used to create these, check out the imgur album I put together.

Tyler Blackburn [18 Icons]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
Tyler's been one of my favourite pbs for a few years now, and with Roswell, New Mexico winning my heart lately... Yeeeah, expect to see a lot more of his face on this comm in the future. Here's a tiny set of some images which either are or pass as him in character as Alex Manes, because I didn't want an icon-less new account for my muse in development.


Every time you look at me, I'm seventeen again. )

KJ Apa in Riverdale 3x04 Pt. 2/2 [185 Icons + 52 Alternates]


[info]devilbear
[info]empireants
This is the second and final set featuring KJ Apa as Fred Andrews in Riverdale 3.04: The Midnight Club - requested/suggested by [info]truebornstark. As with the last one, I encountered some weirdness with shirt colours and have included both aqua and seafom as a result. This is the set with LARP gear~

Additionally, I ran into some weirdness with the brightness levels on icons 218-269 and gave up on making them look good for both my laptop (where they appear too dark in the original state) and phone (where they appear too bright in the alternate form). As such, the bottom of this set includes some brighter alternate versions of those just in case they're too dark as-is.
