112 Icons: IBAR Celebration

Originally posted 6 August 2007:

I was hoping to have more new icons in celebration of International Blog Against Racism Week but I've run out of time. I started with pics snagged from the PicSpam in Sage-Theory's LJ, augmented it with a few pics from Eureka and Babylon 5, sprinkled in a tiny bit of CSI: NY at the request of [info]jalabert, and couldn't resist pulling up some of my older icons to finish it off.

Fandoms represented: Andromeda, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Criminal Minds, CSI, CSI: NY, Dark Angel, Doctor Who, Dresden Files, Eureka, Firefly, Heroes, Lost, SG-1, SGA, Torchwood, Witchblade, Sin City, and Will Smith. Yes, Will Smith is a fandom unto himself.


Without further ado, a Celebration of Diversity in Sci Fi )

There's a joke, "The last thing I learned in college was bridge," and I'm thinking that bridge:college :: selective color:Photoshop. It's just so much damned fun to play with, though getting too wild with it degrades image clarity, making the pic go grainy. I'm fully aware of the frequent abuse of this nifty keen feature; hopefully I've limited the radioactive abominations to just a few. Perhaps some day soon my honeymoon with selective color will be over but until then, consider yourself warned.

My well of icon-fu was dry for the longest time. I'd open Photoshop, crop a pic, and mutilate it into the ugliest damned square possible before throwing my hands up in disgust, closing everything, and wandering off to do something less annoying. Like listen to talk radio. *grin*

I have no idea why a bunch of Jessica Alba promo pics got me back in the groove...but they did. *shrug* They were fun to play around with and a couple even placed in the stillness community where I got the pics. Go me. Anyhow, my need to jump start my lagging icon-fu led me to looking far and wide for inspirational caps -- thus the smörgåsbord of fandoms here.
