A while ago I was asked where I got a particular texture from that I used in an Outlander icon. I replied that it wasn’t actually a texture, but a screencap from HP4 that I had used as a ‘stock’ image.

A couple of people were interested in me sharing some of those images, so I’ve put together a big gallery containing my collection of 'stock' images, collected from screencaps and stills from various tv shows and films.

They are not sorted, but they should be labelled by fandom. The shows/films they are from include Harry Potter, Outlander, Narnia, OUaT, GoT, Maleficent, The Pillars of the Earth, The White Queen, Da Vinci's Demons, Reign, Robin Hood BBC, SWatH, Stardust, Tristan and Isolde, The Tudors, Salem, Vikings, Merlin, Doctor Who, The Musketeers, Lord of the Rings, and MANY more.

Subjects vary from landscapes to people to weaponry to buildings and all sorts in between.

Off the top of my head, I got them from farfarawaysite, kissthemgoodbye, homeofthenutty, lifeis_caps, ladymanson/shadowofreflection, fishsticktheatre, screencapped.net and probably more, plus some of my own screencaps.

Gallery link: http://www.upl.co/gallery/x8Oj0Nw9B
Download link can be found near the top of the page, in the ‘Gallery details’ section appears to not be working - I'm on the case and I'll try and get something sorted asap!

It’s a pretty big gallery, fair warning!

(Not sure how the gallery will cope with multiple downloads, so let me know if you have any issues with viewing/downloading and I’ll see what I can do!)

2nd-Jul-2016 04:29 pm - 149. Inspiration Post
[hp]; hufflepuff; house pride
My entry for theiconthrone Round 2 Challenge #1 (Inspire). This basically ended up as a love letter to everything Hufflepuff, for which I am not remotely sorry!

NOTE: This is an EXTREMELY long and image-heavy post!!!

Hufflepuff is my favorite house in some ways. There comes a point in the book where each house has a chance to rise up to a certain challenge. The Slytherins decided they’d rather not play, the Ravenclaws – some play, some won’t, but the Hufflepuffs stay to fight. The Gryffindors – compromised of lots of full hearty and show off people. The Hufflepuffs stayed for a different reason. They didn’t want to show off, they weren’t being wreckless, that’s the essence of Hufflepuff. My daughter Jessica said to me recently, who wasn’t sorted into Hufflepuff, ‘I think we should all want to be Hufflepuffs.’ I can only say to you, I would not be disappointed at all to be in Hufflepuff. I’m a little upset anyone does feel that way. - J. K. Rowling

What the hell is a Hufflepuff?Collapse )

I'm trying something new with this post where every icon is hyperlinked to the original screenap. Personally I find it really interesting to see the image an icon started as, so I hope you guys agree. Let me know if this is something you want me to keep doing from now on, or if you just think it's a waste of time ;P (A couple of icons use multiple screencaps - see the & next to the icon for the 2nd link)

I will not be participating in AtM this year as I still have various tutorials, activities and requests to complete from the last year or so, but I thought I'd put a promo post up anyway in case people haven't seen that the new AtM is up.

Instead of participating I will be trying to clear all my owed tutorials/guides/requests/remakes/etc.

I think I owe various people the following:
- Guide to adding shadows to subjects (for kirtash_girl, AtM 6.0)
- Monochrome colouring (for anassa_anemou, AtM 6.0)
- Muted greenish colouring (for monstersinyou, AtM 6.0)
- Disney colouring (for kirtash_girl, AtM 2015)
- Icon remakes (bestof_icons 2015) ✔
- icontalking Awards 2015 banners
- Golden Oldies remakes (icontalking)
(let me know if I've forgotten anything!)

Note to self: Also need to complete entries for the following
- Overused and Hard to Use Screencaps activity
- theiconthrone remaining challenges ✔

And these are the icons I have remade (so far) for the Golden Oldies Remake Activity at icontalking (click for the original icon):

Still to remake:
