These are wonderful, Kirstin. That banner is gorgeous. I love #11 too. :)

Thank you. :D
(#11. LOL, I've tried super hard to avoid him but it's seemingly impossible. I'm thisclose to giving in at this point.)

AHHH!!! Your updates get me so excited! I cant start saving them fast enough.

Taking #1, 2, 5 (stunning!), 7, 40 & 48.

Not taking but I love #22. Just GORGEOUS. Honestly. How do you do it?!! Your coloring skills are out of this world.

And the cropping on 16 & 17 are perfection.

And the coloring on #1 is so amazing. I just had to stare at it for awhile.

THE BANNER! I'm stealing that as well.

♥ !

I SEE JACOBY. ;D

I'm going to take a bunch I'm sure but I need to clean out my icons first. I'm out of space, ahah. But they're gorgeous. :)
kirstin: jose: you like that song? yes.fairylanterns on April 30th, 2008 04:41 am (UTC)
LOL. I know, I know. Jacoby just kind of found his way into this post. But that photoshoot was too pretty. I couldn't resist. I MIGHT even have to upload that icon. Ahhh. No, what am I saying?

Yay! There are so many pretty icons around LJ it's hard not to fill up the icon spaces. :P & Thanks! ♥

Manchester United was actually on ESPN today! & Yes, I agree. Cristiano defines pretty. :D

#09 is like Teixeira with his Sudoku puzzles.. ? LOL. & As for #11, I want to dislike Jacoby so bad. But I can't. In fact, it's kind of the opposite. we made matching icons w/ #29! - Yay! Us ftw! ♥ That picture of them was amazing. (A-ROD & HIS WATER = DRAMATIC.) Aww, thank you so much, Karlie!

I was like, Kirstin made an icon post with no Cubs icons?? Then I found Mark DeRosa right in the middle. Duhhhh.

The coloring and cropping on these are wonderful. Keep up the good work :)
kirstin: roddick: that smilefairylanterns on April 30th, 2008 04:48 am (UTC)
LOL. I would probably never do that considering how much admiration I have for the Cubs. ♥ Of course. I had to make all of us more DeRosa icons. :P (By the way, if you want the DeRosa icon with the red background without the little text on it just let me know.) Oh, & Fukudome has two icons in there if you look closely!

Thanks so much! :D

Loving the banner!

I SEE GRADY! :) Awesome work!
kirstin: grady: here in your perfect eyesfairylanterns on April 30th, 2008 04:56 am (UTC)
Thank you! ♥ I thought it was a cool picture of the bats because no matter what team you root for you can use a banner like that (instead of my usual team specific banners).

I can pretty much promise you that you'll always find at least one Grady icon. ;)

Sudoku + Teixiera? LOL, wtf.
kirstin: suzuki: lol i'm sleepyfairylanterns on April 30th, 2008 05:38 am (UTC)
LOL. I don't even know.
It was this texture I found somewhere.. & it just kind of happened.

Or maybe Teixeira just loves Sudoku. :O

I'm more of a tennis fan so like the ATP ones... i love high saturation but in my opinion (just a personal thing) some of your icons are too saturated and look a bit "aliased/sharp" (i don't know how to say in it english sorry).
But again, it could be the screen settings - they might look ok on a darker screen

Anyway, well done ^^
kirstin: rafael: king of clayfairylanterns on May 2nd, 2008 06:48 am (UTC)
Thank you for the critique. I do think my screen for whatever reason tends to make graphics darker than they really are. It's very hard sometimes to get the balance between too dark & too light just right. I will definitely work on that & getting the saturation right. I was trying out some new colouring techniques with this batch so it was sort of a test run to see how they looked. I wanted to change it up a little from my usual colouring. But again, thank you for your comment. It's always helpful to get feedback to help me improve. :)

WHOAAAAAA RAFA!! JAMES!! CRISTIANO!! KAKA!! The coloring is magnificent!!

Okay, this is totally random, but I was watching the Yankees-Indians game a few nights ago, and imagine my sadness and disappointment when Grady didn't play =(

(P.S. #43 IS REALLY HOT!!!! *FANS SELF*)

That one of Jacoby? ZOMGSOHAWT.

AND YOU MADE MARK DeROSA ICONS. THE HOTNESS NEVER ENDS. XD
kirstin: jacoby: why is this here? facepalm.fairylanterns on May 2nd, 2008 06:57 am (UTC)
LOL. Jacoby! ♥ I really did try to avoid him because I knew if I didn't I would like him. [Just ask blinding_voip.] But it's impossible! I think I'm giving in. :P Besides, look he's already taking over my icon space! Ahhh. This is not good. I want to go upload those icons you made of him too.

Mark DeRosa's MLB 2008 photo shoot pictures were super nice! Although, it's not like he takes a bad photo. ROFL.

YAY! YOU & I ALWAYS SEEM TO ICON THE HOTNESS. Us = awesome. :D

LOL. I try not to be too biased towards my favourite teams but the Indians are so much fun to icon, I usually end up making a bunch of them anyway. ;)

I think Teixiera & Sudoku are a perfect pair! And maybe that makes no sense but it really looks good :) I also love twenty-four. Even though, you know. Grady :P
