This will be my last bunch of icons ever!! I tried but without much success. I should obviously stick to what I'm good at. ;) Anyway, I'm posting what I have so far so I'm not tempted to continue.

Ended up pinching number 03 too because it's awesome and I couldn't help myself!

Also, I just read your comments and WHUT?! These are beyoooodiful! I am epically jealous!! You should definitely make more if you want to!

Aww, thank you very much. I don't think they're horrible or anything (If I thought so, I wouldn't be posting them) but I've been doing these icons foriamthedanger icontest without much success. When I see my icons next to the others that have been submitted, I'm realizing that I'm way out of my league. Unfortunately, since I'm a very competitive person by nature, I can't stand not being in the running (yeah, yeah everyone has their character flaws!). Also, I'm not really enjoying making them either (I don't have photoshop along with the fancy 'selective coloring' and 'colors curves' so it's been a struggle, frankly).

Unfortunately, since I'm a very competitive person by nature, I can't stand not being in the running... OMG I TOTALLY RELATE TO THIS! It is the very reason I haven't been ten-pin bowling since I was seven years old! It's also a big reason why I don't (or, at least, very rarely) make icons myself. So, yes, I hear you. And I understand. SO MUCH.

I also hear you on the no photoshop thing. Not that I can blame not having photoshop. I just don't think I have the patience for graphics making! I know exactly what I want something to look like and when it doesn't happen in the first three minutes I give up!

We can be over here being the worst together!! ♥

OMG! You too?? Feels good to be understood! ♥♥ Maybe one day we should try to stick to something even though we're not good at it.

OMG! You too?? ME TOO SO MUCH!

Maybe one day we should try to stick to something even though we're not good at it. If you're like me (as I suspect you will be because I honestly think what I'm about to say is what builds the "I'm not good at it, so I won't do it" mentality to start with), then there are probably a good many things that you are actually pretty freaking decent at (I hope that doesn't sound as conceited as it feels!!) and I can generally get away with giving the stuff I'm dodgy at a clear berth without too much drama! Haha! Maybe we should make a pact, I'll go ten pin bowling and you'll [insert activity here].

Yeah, I know. I'm been putting out doing photography because I'm seeing some of my friends pictures and, although I do take pictures with a relative good camera and they are decent, I'm often not publishing them because they're not as good as what they do.

Ok, I'll take pictures and I'll publish them. Now go pin bowling. ;)

P.S That is one very, very pretty icon you just used.

Oooh, photography! I do actually love photography! You should totally give that a whirl!!

As for the icon that I used, yeah, BrBa really does provide the best material to work with, doesn't it? I feel like most of the work is done for icon makers with this show, because the angles and vistas and general cinematography etc are just, well, they're pretty much second to none, imo! Obviously it takes a good graphics maker to put them together like the one I just used though!

Also, I guess it's also possible that the amazingness of the cinematography for BrBa actually works against icons makers because it means that everyone is starting from a place of awesome! WHO KNOWS?!

Another beautiful icon!! :)

Yes, Breaking Bad does provide some awesome material and I've seen some of the best fandom work (graphics, fan vids, metas, etc.) emerging from that show.

Vidders too! I wish I had more free time to make vids. That's actually something I think I'm good at but it's so freaking time consuming...

LUNE! Your BB icons are so awesome. Sorry I just realised I snagged two of them and forgot to even comment. I suck. But your icons certainly don't. I wouldn't get downhearted over the icon community. The same posters keep winning and it's a little suspicious. I don't think the voting is as unbiased as they are suggesting. Some of the winning icons haven't really impressed me very much.

Thank you cappy!! And yeah, some of the winning icons are not the ones I have major inferiority complex against! Or else I completely lost touch of what makes a good icon (like the one I'm using now... I think the colors, the lightning and cropping are absolutely gorgeous. Didn't place at all and wasn't even close)

Those tiny 100*100 things are so restrictive anyway, I much prefer doing the big graphics I post on tumblr.
