These are fanTAStic.

Will credit when I've decided which ones to use. Riches, riches!

Hee - glad you approve. It's all your fault, anyway. :P
4th-Dec-2008 11:13 pm (UTC)
These are gorgeous! ♥ And the bases are so very ganked. How did you make those? Just messed around with textures or what?
5th-Dec-2008 09:12 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :D

Basically. If you click the 'bases' tag that will bring up a heap more in various posts. I start with a base colour and work up in layers, using various textures in various colours accordingly. *shrugs* It's an entirely haphazard affair, lol.

These are brilliant. I complete forgot about Stephen naming the tortoise after Jack! That's a show of true love right there. XD I am sad, however, because I'm up to reading The Fortune of War and I can't find it anywhere. *flail*
5th-Dec-2008 09:15 pm (UTC)
*LE GASP* How could you forget the tortoise?!

Nuuuuuu! Here's hoping you find it soon. :\ It's a cracker too. It, along with Desolation Island and The Surgeon's Mate sort make a trilogy - or at least one story sort of bleeds through all three.

I love #4 and #6, and for my more twisted side, #31 and #34.

LOVELY, Boz!
5th-Dec-2008 09:15 pm (UTC)
Thank you! XD
4th-Dec-2008 11:57 pm (UTC)
Ganking #29 and all of the bases. (ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO BREWSTER HA HA HA HA...)

Thankies! Will credit, and if I gank more, will credit those too. :)
5th-Dec-2008 09:16 pm (UTC)
(LOL - glad you liked them/thought they might be useful)

You're welcome - and thanks. :D
5th-Dec-2008 12:24 pm (UTC)
You've found the awesomest quotable quotes. :D
5th-Dec-2008 09:17 pm (UTC)
No, no. I found one or two but it was almost entirely tootsiemuppet who gave me the rest. Positively buried me in the things she did. XD

YAY! *dances*
5th-Dec-2008 01:43 pm (UTC)
I love them! I've taken a handful, and will credit as necessary. Thanks!
5th-Dec-2008 09:17 pm (UTC)
You're welcome and thank you! :D
5th-Dec-2008 02:28 pm (UTC)
lovely quotes and took some textures :)!
5th-Dec-2008 09:18 pm (UTC)
Glad you liked. :D
5th-Dec-2008 03:06 pm (UTC)
XD! Those are hilarious and so very awesome. I will credit when I can decide which ones I want. ~flail~ ;D

I second the question as how you make those wonderful backgrounds. ~has stolen them all~
5th-Dec-2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
Thanks, mi-dear. :D

Fiddle about with layers of textures basically. Found some lovely ones ages ago (see my profile for credits) and still use them all the time.
5th-Dec-2008 09:29 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. :D

Ah yes, the textures. I should get GIMP again, but I'm still a bit frightened off of it since my computer died not long after installing it.
5th-Dec-2008 04:44 pm (UTC)
Oh, my, these are all quite delightful! I think I snagged all of them...
5th-Dec-2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
lol, well I'm just glad you liked them. Thank you! :D
5th-Dec-2008 05:20 pm (UTC)
Oh, yay!! Just in time for my extra icon space!!! :D

These are great- thank you!
5th-Dec-2008 09:20 pm (UTC)
You're welcome - glad you liked them! :D
5th-Dec-2008 06:02 pm (UTC)
These are fabulous. I'm taking #19 and #34 and will credit you. Thanks!
5th-Dec-2008 09:21 pm (UTC)
Thanks, and you're welcome. :D
5th-Dec-2008 07:02 pm (UTC)
Without any doubt, you have found the bestest quotes, though my favourites are #12, #21, #39, which I will snag and definitely credit when I use them.

Thank you so much for letting us have this wonderful selection.
:D
5th-Dec-2008 09:22 pm (UTC)
Nah, tootsiemuppet found the quotes. ;D

Very glad you liked them - thank you. :)
5th-Dec-2008 09:49 pm (UTC)
You are a very talented person! I couldn't make icons if my life depended on it.
:D
5th-Dec-2008 10:40 pm (UTC)
Aw, you're too kind - but really the sort I make are not too difficult and are fairly simplistic, and I'm still feeling my way round this lark, though I've been making icons for a couple of years now. I could point out heaps of people FAR better than I am. But I'm glad you liked them, thanks! :D

These are funny. Very funny. I'm going to have to go track some books down, now...

Oh yes, and I've taken the bases because they're also wonderful. :D
6th-Dec-2008 09:28 pm (UTC)
The books are genius. Historically superb - in terms of accuracy and detail in every aspect - gripping at times, thrilling, fantastically drawn characters and characterisation (believeable too) and yet laugh out loud funny at really surprising moments when you least expect it. :D I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! XD

Thanks!

Took base number 6. It's exactly what I was looking for!

Also took bases 2, 3, and 7.

Will credit if used.
7th-Dec-2008 09:08 pm (UTC)
Glad they might be of use! Thank you. :D
16th-Dec-2008 07:02 pm (UTC)
Awesome! Taking a few when i decide which... Thank you!
16th-Dec-2008 09:34 pm (UTC)
You're welcome - and thanks! Glad you liked them :D
27th-Apr-2009 07:11 pm (UTC)
Have snagged 18 and 32, the multiple-quote "in my fandom the slash writes itself" animation, and most of the bases. They are beautiful!
2nd-Apr-2010 07:06 pm (UTC)
I took them all. OH GODS, THE GLORY!
Shall credit. ;)
9th-Jun-2010 02:02 pm (UTC)
These are fantastic. Many thanks. Post is in my personal memories. What with all these Aubreyad icons around, I'm seriously contemplating going Paid again :D
14th-Sep-2010 12:35 pm (UTC)
These are brilliant! Took some and will credit if I use them. Now I really want to read all the books and try to find these quotes. :D Thanks a lot!
24th-Feb-2011 01:43 pm (UTC)
Followed a credit from someone else's gorgeous icon to find these - so impressed! Swiping #007, #024 and #026 if that's ok. Will credit, of course!
30th-Apr-2013 03:51 pm (UTC)
So I can't even begin to tell you how funny the Oxford one is in light of one of my other fandoms. I don't know if I'll ever actually use it (my timidness entirely to blame for that) but I have to show everyone.
