New Art (Supernatural/JP) and Meme  
Okay, I promised a few folks on my flist yesterday that I'd post some new art.  So I've got two wallpapers and some icons.  First, the icons.  I think I may have posted some of these in various places before, but I don't think I've posted them here yet.

17 icons
12 Sam Winchester (from episodes 1x02, 1x07, 1x08, 1x09, 1x11, 1x14, 2x11, 3x12, 3x13)
5 Jared Padalecki (2 from the BuddyTV interview (?), 2 from the TV Guide 411 special, and 1 from the TV Guide photoshoot)

Credit not totally necessary but appreciated. Comments are love. :)

Now the wallpapers. One is a mostly Sam one from episode 3x11 (I might have posted it before *some*where but I don't remember posting here) and the second is a Jared Padalecki one using the pics from the TVG photoshoot.  Clicky on the little pics for full size.

Again, comments are love.  If you like any of them please feel free to take.

And finally, a meme I snurched from meg_tdj

Let others know a little more about yourself, repost this with your name followed by "ology":


Q. What is the wallpaper on your computer?
This computer here at work, just one of the preset walls that came with Windows XP (I think it's the "Bliss" one). At home I currently have an aerial view of the Adirondack mountains of NY and their various lakes (probably a few from one of the mountain tops).

Q. How many televisions do you have in your house?


Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed?
Mostly left.

Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Teeth, tonsils and adenoids

Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
I think a big stack of magazines

Q. Have you ever been knocked out?
Yes, last summer when I was hit by a car...not sure how long I was out


Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
Doubt it very much... how morbid :P

Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
First name? Last? Full name? I can't think of anything. Although I'd change my last name to something a lot easier to pronounce (silly gaelic stuff *snort*).

Q. What color do you think looks best on you?
Not sure.  Maybe blue.

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?
Ugh, don't think so. Once when I was about 5 I chewed some cicada (large annoying, loud bug that's active in the summertime) skin but I never swallowed it... spit it out (thank God)


Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
No way... I may be a little desperate for money, but not that desperate ;)

Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000
Probably not

Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?

Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
Nope... can't, I've got the dreaded GERD. :P

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?


Q. What is in your left pocket?
a tissue

Q. Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?
Never saw it but it looked pretty dumb to me

Q. Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?
Mostly hardwood. Any of the carpet is area rugs. No wall-to-wall anywhere

Q. Do you sit or stand in the shower?

Q. How many pairs of flip-flops do you own?


Q. Last person who texted you?
my late ex-boyfriend, Rick, a looooooong time ago (you can see how much I use texting, lol)

Q. Last person who called you?
Client at work

Q. Last person you hugged?


Q. Number?

Q. Season?

Q. Color?
It was always red but lately it's become more blue and green


Q. Missing someone?
Oh yes... the Brian whom I mentioned a few entries ago *sigh*

Q. Mood?
Hungry... need lunch....

Q. Listening to?

Q. Watching?
at the moment? computer monitor

Q. Worrying About?
do you have a free year? (*snerk* I think most people who read my LJ probably know what I worry about mostly)

Q. Wearing?


Q. First place you went this morning?
Bathroom (stealing
meg_tdj 's answer)

Q. What can you not wait to do?
at the moment, eat (other than that, I agree w/meg's answer again... *hi fives fellow SPN fan* :D)

Q. Do you smile often?
I smile as often as I possibly can

Q. Are you a friendly person?
I suppose

These are awesome! Especially the wallpapers! Do you mind me asking how you did the one using the TVG photoshoot? I'm just curious because it looks kind of hand drawn and kind of not. If that makes sense. I'm officially at a loss to describe your work :D

I'm snagging a bunch of icons, if that's alright. The puppy ones are simply adorable!

Thanks so much! It's no problem at all. :) I took this tutorial and I basically modified it a bit for my own use... played around with some of the layer properties mostly. I only used the first 6 or 7 steps so I could achieve a sort of "sketch" effect instead of watercolor/paint.

It's quite alright! And thanks, I'm glad you like them! :)

Nice icons...I love the one that says "Dear god, thank you". 'Cause that is SO true ♥

Awww, you used lyrics from Silent Lucidity!! Love that song, and it's so perfect for a Mystery Spot wallpaper. I think I'll snag it. :)

(other than that, I agree w/meg's answer again... *hi fives fellow SPN fan* :D)

I can't believe it's not Thursday yet!!! Is it just me, or is this week passing in slow motion? :P
jessm78: Jared Padalecki: TV Guide Photoshootjessm78 on April 30th, 2008 02:28 am (UTC)
I kept staring at my screencaps for Mystery Spot and knew I wanted to make something angsty... I thought it was kinda cool how the lyrics to Silent Lucidity seemed to go so well with the theme! Snag away... I'm glad you like it :D

Nope, not just you... I can't believe it's only Tuesday. And I could have sworn Wednesday was yesterday. Guess that shows where my head is at ;)
