Con Man, Forger, Thief of Hearts - 20+ icons of Neal Caffrey for tvcharacter20

Some characters in TV shows are just too irresistible to ignore (and not to icon) - Dean Winchester is one of them, any of Chris Kane's another, and then there's this absolutely charming, drop dead gorgeous, yet a bit dangerous con man that we all know since October 2009: Neal George Caffrey.

Thanks to the screencapping talents of my dear friend kanarek13, we are blessed with gorgeous HD caps of every single episode - which translates to an icon maker like me as a wealth of material to work with. Thanks, hon, for providing so much gorgeousness!

This batch was made for Round 74 over at tvcharacter20 and as a birthday gift for our lovely bear pooh_collector. Hope you have an awesome b-day, hon, enjoy!

Caution - Heartthrob ahead!!Collapse )

STORY: Words (Don't) Come Easy (Neal, for runthecon)

Summary: In the wee hours of the night, a new father has a one-sided conversation – and kind of an epiphany.

Notes: Written for Round 5 of runthecon and tjs_whatnot’s prompt “Silver Lining and Gold Dust Dreams”. Set either in an AU after Season 4 or post-series. Title comes from an old song by F.R. David. A belated birthday gift for my dear friend kanarek13. Enjoy!

Beautiful woman with a lot of talents - 20+ icons of Amy Adams for redheads20in20

I bet with you that everyone has seen Amy Adams in a movie by now. To refresh your memory: she was a truly enchanting Giselle in "Enchanted", a brave Amelia Earhart in "A Night At The Museum 2", a wonderful independent Sydney Prosser in "American Hustle". Some of you might remember her in "Leap Year", "Julie and Julia" or "Doubt" (both alongside the one and only Meryl Streep). As you can see in this little list, she can play both drama and comedy, and to a degree that earned her several awards and nominations worldwide for her acting chops. This set was made for Round 6 over at redheads20in20. Enjoy!

(Almost) 50 Shades of Amy...Collapse )

Twin-Pack of Guys - 20+ icons of Robert Downey jr. & Karl Urban for guys20in20

At first glance, Round 79 over at guys20in20 is a rather usual one. You choose a guy, make 20 (or more) icons of him, and that's it. But - and that's a big but - not this time. This time, we had to include one of the guys in the banners for the rounds in 2016 and our second choice in the set.

My first choice was Robert Downey jr. Like none other actor, he's a living, breathing synonym for overcoming even the lowest low in life. As you might remember, he even went to jail back in the 90s before getting his footing back and rising up to be one of the most popular actors of our time. Very inspirational for your own bad times, that's all I'm saying.

For my second choice, I picked an actor that has, similar to Jeremy Renner, been lurking in the back of my mind, ever since I first saw the second and third part of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy - Karl Urban. Back then, he played Eomer, leader of the riders of Rohan. But it should take until seeing "Almost Human" for the first time (which was in late 2015) to push Karl to the front.

Last but not least, the "Remember 2016" icon space goes to an actor that has been taken from us way too soon, and in probably the freakiest way ever - Anton Yelchin. He also is kind of a bridge between the other two guys. Robert did "Charlie Bartlett" with him, and Karl was one of his teammates on board of the starship Enterprise in the "Star Trek" Reboot.

Enjoy!

Guys, guys, guys....Collapse )

It's A Man's World - 20+ icons of SPN guys for thecw_20n20

Round 3 over at thecw_20n20 was kind of a free round. We still had to choose a CW show and if we wanted to icon the guys or the gals of our claim, but other than that, we could icon to our heart's desire. I tried to include a variety, but there have been definitely way too much guys on this show so far XD And I just can't avoid our handsome Winchester brothers, can I? Enjoy!!

gameofcards - Phase 9 - Masterpost

Now that Phase 9 of gameofcards is over, I thought it would be nice to show you all the various artworks I've done for the challenges. A phase runs approximately 3 months and is filled with tons of fun! (you'll never believe how much creativity is hidden in yourself!) Warning: IMAGE-HEAVY!!

Sigtags

You need these little beauties whenever you post a response to a challenge. It's helping the mods to keep tracks of your participations (and in case you post to the wrong team thread). See them as kind of a business card, telling everyone which team you're on.

Icons

Iconing around the fandoms...Collapse )


Graphic Mix

Fanart, Icons, Sigtags...Collapse )


Special - Joker Challenge

For this challenge, issued by our awesome mod kitty, we had to spread our wings (so to speak). There were games (like doing a labyrinth, finding words, do a quiz, a puzzle, or coloring a page), we had to post screencaps, do icons, sigtags, and last but not least, one big graphic - with all artworks somehow linked to the landcomm's general theme of card games.

A bunch of handsome guys...Collapse )


Team Battles

Next to the regular challenges, that are open to all members of all teams, each team can issue a so-called "battle" in order to get more points (most likely to happen among the first two teams). Usually, these battles are themed, but what you do with that theme, it's solely up to you.

Battlegrounds this way...Collapse )


Fanfiction

As a writer at heart, I can't resist writing challenges ;) So, next to the graphic challenges, I also wrote several stories for this phase:

If you have any questions about a challenge, how gameofcards works, or about any of the artworks above, just drop me a PM or a comment ;)
