A few weeks ago I order a bunch of BBC mini-series, and I've just spent the past weeks watching most of them, so now I'm in the mood to icon! ;) Thus far, I've seen Middlemarch and Our Mutual Friend, and am now in the midst of watching Daniel Deronda, and I still have yet to watch The Buccaneers.

So this isn't a "request" post, but a suggestion one. Just comment to this post with a list of things you'd like to see icons of. Don't feel limited to the four series I've mentioned above (I just mention them because I know some of you out there are big fans). List anything you want (tv shows, stock, movies, actors/actresses etc.).

Keep in mind, however, that if you list something, I'm not guaranteed to make icons of it. This post is just to give me inspiration when I'm lacking, and to get a feel for what people would like to see.

So suggest away! :)

Oh, you saw Our Mutual Friend? How did you like it? I would love it if you made icons from that series, especially icons of Bella & John. :) I just love them!

You can find screencaps here, although it's not of the complete series. I made a picspam here — I know they're low quality, but I've made some icons out of them. Oh, and there's a huge picspam here which you might find more helpful!

It wasn't quite what I expected, but I still enjoyed it overall. I found it a little tedious at times, what with all the interlinking story lines that Dickens is so famous for -- I'd sit through one waiting for it to get back to the ones I was interested in. But still, on the whole, a good mini-series. :)

And I'd already started on an OMF icon batch, so you needn't worry! I downloaded the caps by ghostlybohemia, though I found working with them really hard. I made around 50 icons in total, but deleted about 20 of them because they were so ugly. grar. Anyway, I was hoping to get access to more caps (there are so many iconable moments in the last episode!) but I've yet to get a response from the capper. Ah well. But there will be an OMF post in the near future. :D

I absolutely love Daniel Deronda! Some Gwendolyn/Daniel icons would be really nice(: Ooh! Ooh! And in Middlemarch I love the Mary/Fred pairing. They were so sweet =)
Rabbit-Hearted Girl: our mutual friend: eugeneedge_of_night on July 7th, 2007 08:18 pm (UTC)
thirding our mutual friend! my favourite pair is eugene and lizzy, so if you included them, too that'd be awesome. i also like mortimer, although he doesn't get as much attention as most. ^^; i really like the brotherly-love relationship between him and eugene.
another fantastic series is the newest bleak house. jarndyce, esther, and woodcourt are my favourite characters in that one.
oh man, i don't want to go crazy on you, but i just love british minis! jane eyre (2006), north & south, nicolas nickleby (with james d'arcy)...ok, i'll stop now. if you made even one icon from any of those, i'd be happy. ^^; your icons are lovely.

You're so lucky to have a whole bunch of BBC miniseries. Lucky lucky lucky!

Can't wait to see the icons!

Yay! I would always love to see more icons from Jane Eyre, but you're probably tired of making those, right? Have you ever made Harry Potter icons? I can't remember. I'd love some icons of Ron/Hermione, especially some black and white ones. I don't have any links, but I imagine they're everywhere. :)

I doubt you have seen it, but the ITV mini-series Mary Bryant? There are hardly any icons around of it. Or my usual request of Jack Davenport. Heh. Are you sick of me yet?

But to be honest, I love all the icons you make!

- Pride & Prejudice (Lizzie/Darcy)
- Robin Hood (Robin/Marian)

LOL Sorry it's so much. Just suggestions ;)

I second Casanova, but of the movie in general. Finding Casanova icons is impossible.

And Lady Jane, Tristan and Isolde and Troy as well. xD
Emilia Rothschild: Merchant of Venice: Portia and Nerissaetherealshores on July 10th, 2007 09:06 pm (UTC)
Tuck Everlasting, Elizabeth (Cate Blanchett) icons, icons from any Hans Matheson film because he's bloody brilliant, the Merchant of Venice *points to icon*, Ever After...want me to stop now? xD
Emilia Rothschildetherealshores on July 10th, 2007 09:06 pm (UTC)
Oh - A Knight's Tale as well!
Liznaybob on July 11th, 2007 04:29 am (UTC)
I absolutely adore A Knight's Tale, but unfortunately I can't find any caps (any good ones, at least) to make icons from. When I did find some, the links had generally expired. :(

Oh, those are perfect! Thank you so much! You can definitely count on me making AKT icons now. :D

xD You're welcome!

Discovered that site awhile ago, it's really helpful with screencaps of historical films.
