Icons Ideas & Requests  
I'm opening this post up for any icon ideas or requests that you guys might have. Basically, I will use this as a reference post while looking for things to icon in the months to come; it's not something I'm going to promise to do right away, but you never know when inspiration might hit. So if there is anything you'd like to see batches of, or have a hankering for, please comment with your ideas. I'll make the post stay at the top of my journal so you can always find it, if you think of something down the line. :)

I feel very: determineddetermined

I second the moon icon request! :-)
Since my username is "moon-related" and I love anything that has to to with the night sky, the moon and the stars, I would love to see icons with any of the things named above! :-)

I'd like some bears, and mood-describing ones. Also quilting or sewing. And writing. (sorry to have so many!)

I would love to see more stock sports icons, especially skiing and running. I'm always looking for good ones, and they're hard to find.

I also love your nature icons, especially trees, so if you're ever inspired to do more of those, I'd love it!

Lastly, how about generic travel icons: suitcases, tickets in hand, maps spread out on knees, train stations, etc. (No specific destination.)

I love your icons! (I always love your banners, as well!)

Toast? Stationery icons? Skylines? :)
foggymornings: Livresfoggymornings on November 16th, 2008 01:19 pm (UTC)
Mine are rather random:

Sundance (Film Festival/Institute)
Robert Redford
Barbra Streisand
Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Stock icons of film (movie, not camera) items
Stock icons of roadtripping

Most of these reflect the roadtrip to Utah I'm doing after spring semester. I can't stop thinking about it! Thanks in advance! :-)

I'd love cupcakes, macarons, or, basically, any kind of sweets.
Sushis and handfans as well.

Oh and some more banners (not friends only banners, textless ones) would be very welcome because I love your banners.

Thanks :)

How about vintage travel posters or ads? My sister gave me a calendar of them three years ago and I still have it because the images are so colorful and beautiful.
Kat: pink starartykat on November 16th, 2008 07:46 pm (UTC)
Oh, I know one that I would REALLY like -- a good picture of mountains, not the Rocky mts but the Appalachian or Blue Ridge. I live here but have no good pictures that relate to that.

*Seconds this!* It's so difficult finding stock icons for the seasons with any sort of Southern-type plant, too. :(

I am always looking for sportswomen icons. Women playing sports, especially team sports but also solo.

Also ocean icons - ocean waves are surprisingly hard to icon I think, look beautiful in life but hard to get down to 100 x 100 squares.
Christina: lets go back to bedsunlitdays on November 17th, 2008 12:50 am (UTC)
Oh, I agree - ocean icons *are* hard. Probably why I've only done a handful here and there. I'm never happy with the crops. lol

I can't remember exactly what you have or haven't done yet, but here's a few subjects I'd love to see iconized/bannerized:

Pre-Raphaelite art

Of course, your graphics are always so wonderful, I'll probably end up liking whatever subjects you choose!

the silver lady: unicorn-dare to dream by rous3acciochocolate on January 2nd, 2009 06:21 am (UTC)
I like fantasy beasties of any kind, just not unicorns. :) And will second the Pre-Raphaelite art.

I'm a sucker for animal stock icons.
Big Cats
Marine Critters (especially colorful fish/corals)
Dinosaurs. :)
Arctic animals
Baby animals
the silver lady: turtle by starpolloacciochocolate on January 2nd, 2009 06:19 am (UTC)
I will second all of these. :)

I'm very interested in the artwork of Mary Blair right now.

Some examples of her work:
Christina: fun socks!sunlitdays on November 19th, 2008 12:33 am (UTC)
Thanks for the link - don't know the artist, though. Do you think icons would be okay? Wouldn't want to piss her off. lol

shirtless boys. there are never enough shirtless boys

I know you don't think you are very good at text, but I adored your last text icon post
Christina: feet are sweet shoessunlitdays on November 19th, 2008 12:31 am (UTC)
lol Shirtless boy, eh? I see. :P

And you're sweet. If I come up with new sayings, I'll consider some text icons. heh
Marcimarciadanielle on November 22nd, 2008 03:01 pm (UTC)
This isn't really an icon request, but I love when you make wallpapers!
Christina: mary janessunlitdays on November 22nd, 2008 05:18 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! Yeah, it's been awhile, eh? Hmm. I'll have to find some good images....

I love your icons. I'm adding you as a friend. I will snag some later.

I would also like to request some Austin, Texas themed icons.

Aw, I'm glad you like them! Welcome :) Your screen name cracks me up. lol
And Austin = love.

Christmas!!!! I would soooo like some new Christmas icons from you...
and also Wallpapers... I checked and I noticed it's been quite a while since your lasts, so it would be definitely nice :) (even nicer if Christmas Wallpapers lol)

Florida Everglades.

ooh how about underwater icons! looking up into the light or looking at the things in the deep. I imagine the colouring would be different.

as you can see I was inspired by this icon :)
nnayramnnayram on December 30th, 2008 05:40 am (UTC)
*hugs for all the awesome icons she has taken over the years*

My requests, if you have the time and inspiration:

- long-haired men
- Eastern Europe (pictures of countryside and capitals)
- roos (the joeys in particular)
- Bollywood dancing (example: a bit old school Indian stuff like the Dola Re Dola from the movie Devdas)
- Indian sweets & vegetarian cooking, in general (examples: gulab jamun, kheer, cashew barfi, soan papdi; palak paneer, rava dosa, aloo mutter, gobi manchurian)
- ethnic dresses from all over the world
- different flavours of bubble tea (XD, I vote for taro!)
- icons of each state with its flower/tree/plant/animal/whatever representation you prefer

*bows* Thank you~!

Your posting today reminded me that I wanted to make a request.

Two of my favorite artists are Josephine Wall and Ruth Sanderson, and I would love it if you made icons of their artwork.

That's my main request, but otherwise - I know you've made a lot, but there can never be too many icons of books and reading. Nature is always good too. And I don't know if you've ever made Star Wars icons, but if you did, I'm sure they'd be good.

Of course, don't feel obligated to make any of those! Just if you feel like it/get inspired/have time.
the silver lady: Rose & 10.5 in winter by likethesunacciochocolate on January 2nd, 2009 06:37 am (UTC)
Your icons are always lovely, but I too would love to see some more walls from you, esp. of any season. :) Other ideas, since you asked:

1) Doctor Who (you have that mood theme, after all! *grins*); both New!Who and Classic!Who

2) the fantasy artist Charles Vess

3) coffee and tea

4) I'll second those who asked for Lotr and Star Wars, and add Star Trek into the mix :)

5) Black Phoenix Alchemy Lad perfume oils
Christina: promise ringsunlitdays on January 2nd, 2009 04:51 pm (UTC)
I did do Dr Who - one post still exists, the other was deleted because no one much seemed to care. lol I just don't have good luck when doing fandoms.

My two cents
I am always looking for icons about:

beads / jewelry making
celtic knots / claddaghs
