slashfairy has re-ignited my fondness for Karl, and he is so photogenic that it was a lot of fun to make the icon. I want to try writing some fic with him.

(ETA: I uploaded this whole photoshoot and will do a picspam soon)

While I was at it, I made one of Billy singing at the Hotel Cafe, from one of rosamundeb's gorgeous pictures.

I'm not very good at icons, I tried and failed to make a toppy!Billy one and a new Elijah one, from Oxford Murders or last summer with his shaven head, but they all came out badly. I don't quite know what I wanted, but whatever it was, I didn't get it. /whinge

In other news: I finally got a haircut and no longer have a mullet :-)

Wow. Karl looks seriously HOT in that icon. I think you've reignited my fondness, too.

Thank you! He's a sexy beast, and that's a fabulous photoshoot. Should I post the pictures? I have no idea where I got them from.

Oh, yes! If you get a chance, that would be fantastic! I've never seen those before.

That is a seriously beautiful picture of Karl.

I'm not a terribly good icon-maker, but if you have a picture in mind for the Billy one, I'd be happy to try and help. Though I know many people like to make their own, so no worries if you'd rather just keep at it yourself.<3

The picture was so good I couldn't muck it up in the icon!

I would love an icon that got the looming nature of this one without losing the detail. I couldn't do it.

Right, here we go. If nothing else, some lovely bases to start with?

I like the second from the right one in the second row!

And... so thrilled you made an icon from a pic of mine - thanks.

I'm wavering so much between the 4th one on the first line, and the fifth, and the third one on the second line (a little like devil horns ;-). I just can't decide...

actually, if there's a way for you to take the third one in the second line and get rid of the orange letter bits, I think that's the one that works best for me. and thank you so much!

Karl is very photogenic and one of the few guys that I like both with short and long(ish) hair! I am looking forward to him at RingCon...wish you could come over for that!!!

And, you sound like you think mullets are a bad thing ;-)

If I were footloose and wealthy, I'd so go to RingCon! Ah well, someday.
