Guess what kiddos! I have a present for you all earlier than you expected!

74 Numb3rs icons!!!

The breakdown:
27 Charlie
15 Don
8 Megan
8 Larry
4 Colby (2 with text)
3 Don/Alan
3 Colby/David
2 David
1 Alan
1 Don/Megan
1 Don/David
1 Megan/Colby/David

Okay, NOW it adds up to 74 - I figured out the issue. Yaaaay!

So, we have a gi-NORMOUS batch of icons here from Harvest, and I am glad to note that there are maaaaany many characters represented. Except the one with no personality, but well - who cares, really? =P

I was incredibly frustrated with the lighting in the opening scenes of this episode. Yes, I know, it was supposed to be dark and spooky. However, it was TOO DARK to see half the action, and making icons for those scenes was really difficult. I wish I could teach the crew a thing or two about proper lighting.


Preview! (my favorites, as usual - the Megan one of these is my fave from this whole batch! :D)

This space reserved for monstrous batch of icons/bases from "Harvest"!

Charlie, Don, Larry, Megan, Alan, Colby, & David will be featured.
Amita will be absent, because I get nauseous looking at her. Too bad, so sad. =P

Lots and lots of Charlie-faces, as always. Plus, as a show of diversity (and equal Eppes-ortunity), a few of stripping!Don, thinking!Don, and gunslinging!Don. Also, some frustrated!Larry, pretty!Megan, pensive!Alan, kickass!David, and muffin!Colby.
... Because I only recently realized that some Numb3rs fans actually like people other than Charlie! (Why, I cannot fathom, but 'tis true!)

Now you can all get excited for these new fun things (except those of you who don't like anyone but Amita, but... well, I don't like you if you don't like *anyone* but her! XD), and then have a party when I post them. Hopefully after homework tomorrow I'll have some time left to work on them and get them up either tomorrow night or Wednesday afternoon. :D

In all seriousness, I'm about a third of the way through, I just wanted to let you all know:
1. they're coming,
2. there are many characters, and
3. muffin!Colby makes me snort while giggling. ^.^

New stuffs for yous! ^_^ 42 new things, actually. Because 42 is the Ultimate Answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything. :D

Okay, so... I *LOVED* Double Down. I think it has been my favorite episode yet (if not, definitely one of them). Card counting has always fascinated me - I fully intend to learn how to do it one day - and Larry's past is also exciting to discover. Larry grows on me a little more every day... he's so goofily cute, it's quite silly. Plus, the mentos-in-the-soda thing? I did a similar demo for third graders back in my AP Chem days, and we NEVER got it to shoot that high - nor did we wear raincoats - but it was still AWESOME. :D

ANYWAY! So, I have Double Down icons. There are a few from random other episodes too (I found a few caps I liked while perusing SDKG/numb3rs_recaps). Lots of Charlie, significant amounts of Larry. And maybe one with Don in it, I think? Heh.

I am really proud of the "focus" ones featuring Larry (one of which is featured in the preview)... I adore the way they came out, although I had to try about eight blur filters to get the background right. :D

I reeeeeally like the greenish light in the casinos, and all the glorious writing-equations-on-glass-with-fluorescent-marker scenes. They make much prettier backgrounds/overlays than the chalkboards! And you all know how I am with bright colors.

The theme this time is nerdy fun and games, because that was pretty much the entire mathy-subplot of Double Down. :D

Anyway, all that official-y-type-stuff:

42 Numb3rs icons -
24 Charlie
7 Charlie/Larry
6 Larry
1 Charlie/Don
3 poker chips
1 funny misspelled picture

That breaks down into 18 with text/decoration (+12 bases) and 12 pretty pictures with no text.


Credits!: Most screencaps from SDKG's glorious screencap galleries. A few from numb3rs_recaps.
The lyrics on the one random icon with song lyrics ("steeped in knowledge I'll step from the board") are from Dispatch's frickin' awesome song "Here We Go".
Screencap for the "Charlie-vision" icon from honeyswallow.

hit or stay?Collapse )

WHEW!! What a LOT of icons.

... Did I mention I again haven't slept in 23 hours? I think I make my best icons on serious sleep deprivation.

Comment, credit, giggle, geek out, take home, and love.

Woooohooooo! As a "celebration" of the fact that I haven't slept in 23 hours now, I would like to share with you all a GIGANTIC batch of icons that make me giggle in my mentally exhausted state - perhaps they will have the same effect on a few of you even if you *are* slightly more awake.

I stumbled across this entry at numb3rs_recaps and found the screencaps just too darn funny. I'm not sure which eps all of these are from, but they are all season 1, and I think they are hilarious so... deal. =P

The theme this time around is the many strange faces of Don, Charlie, and Larry. Yep, you heard right - more than just Charlie! wooooo! *dances around* Aren't you excited about me broadening my horizons?!? Well, you should be...

Anyway, on to the official stuff:

33 Numb3rs icons...
13 Don
11 Charlie
9 Larry

(... *gasp!* Yes, there are actually more Don icons here than Charlie icons... it's cause Don makes a lot more strange faces than Charlie does)


(I know, I know, a lot of previews - I want you guys to get an idea of the silliness within ^_^)

where's the cream filling?! ... now that's the stuff!Collapse )

... Awww, ain't they adorkable??

Okay... so how awesome is this banner:

^___^ I put it in the community info, and I'm going to put it in my userinfo too. <3!

... Incidentally:
geek: n. informal a person with an eccentric devotion to a particular interest.
... I would say that qualifies us pretty well, wouldn't you? :D

I toyed with the layout and came up with some greens that look pretty nice; if you think they're too bright or whatever, lemme know and I'll try to change them like... tomorrow night. I can also totally redo the layout if you like, my other idea was dark blues and golden yellows.

And, I would like to propose a rule: whatever we decide to qualify as geeky counts. TV shows, movies, general silliness... geekiness not limited just to math puns and social awkwardness. Although those are always awesome. (Math puns, anyway...)

Well... everything except The O.C. You can be as eccentrically devoted as is humanly possible (and then some) to The O.C. and I will still refuse to count it as "geeky". But that's just me. =P

Well, here's a collection of all of the icons I've made relating to NUMB3RS (actually, they're all the icons I've made, period). I do mine in batches, see? I hope you enjoy them, and if you're taking them and could follow a few simple rules of mine, I'd be eternally greatful.


17 Don
16 Charlie
13 Larry
3 Larry / Megan
2 Larry / Charlie
2 Don / Charlie
1 Larry / Don / Charlie
1 Larry / Charlie Friends Only Banner

Sorry this is such a huge post; dial-uppers, beware.

54 icons and 1 banner... *whistles*Collapse )

A compilation of all my previously posted icons... just so they can all be in one place over at this gorgeous new community :D

40 Numb3rs icons:
34 Charlie
2 Don
1 Charlie/Don
1 Larry
1 Megan
1 Alan

... I know, I know, what a lopsided count. XD


heee, so much Charlie in so little space!Collapse )

... Wheee. As you can probably tell, I'm pretty new to this whole thing, but I'm learning fast, especially because I've been following the examples of such talented friends as quixotic____, delgaserasca, midnighta, frostedmagnolia, emily_reich, and all the other fantastic icon-makers at numb3rs_icons :D

Please note! Some of these icons were made as gifts for people, so please respect the people I made them for and ASK BEFORE TAKING. Thank you!

In celebration of the new community, I would like to christen it with its first batch of icons!

24 Charlie
(12 with squiggles + same 12 without)

The theme of "Toxin" seemed to be confused!Charlie, so that is our icon theme for this batch :D

And!! Avast, there be squiggles afoot! I fell in love with colorfilter's squiggles and dotted lines brushes, and they found their way into this batch of icons :D But never fear, squiggle-haters, the squiggle-free versions are up too... although I don't think they are as pretty :)


Caps from SDKG's Toxin screencaps gallery. Brushes by colorfilter. Thank youuuuu!

Comment, credit, drool, giggle, enjoy. Feel free to add text (especially to #01, which I just COULDN'T come up with something fitting for...), just comment and tell me what you put on it so we can all be amazed at how much more creative you are than I am ;)

want more?Collapse )
