Ugh, ever since my old computer died (in around April time? And then my new one broke on my birthday and was out for about half a month and NOT FAIR MAN) I have had, like, NO icons. Seriously: all my old ones were lost in the crash and then I was caught up in my new computer troubles and NOW I HAVE NOTHING AND IT IS AWFUL AND STRANGE.

...So, er, yes. Would my lovely flist recommend some good icon-makers to me, please? My main fandoms, at the moment, are: Elementary, The Avengers (with focus on Loki and/or Tony, because I love those dicks), The Simpsons, Red Dwarf, Blackadder, most/all Shakespeare plays and Greco-Roman stuff in general. I'm also willing to take pro-feminism/LGBT/disability icons. And general stock, depending on how pretty/sexy it is. Mainly I just need actualy positive icons! Because, yeah, at the moment I have about one of those. And I really, REALLY need a hugging icon - because I have no hugging icon at the moment and LIFE KEEPS BEING GENERALLY SHIT TO PEOPLE I CARE ABOUT STOP THAT NOW LIFE.

So, er... Yes. :DDD Thanks in advance! (YAY ICON FRENZY~.)

I have quite a few icons on my LJ if that's any help?

the_wild_karrde is a very good place for icons from several fandoms. :)

Ah, thank you very much! I have snagged a few from there and they all look great. :DD

Well, this exists :D reddwarficons (I tend to use communities for finding my icons rather than specific iconmakers, but maybe I'm weird.)

I also recommend my own hugging icon. SCROOGE REALLY LOVES HIS MONEY OKAY.

RED DWARFFFFFFFFFF! :DDDD Thank you! (I tend to use general communities too, to be honest. But those are even harder to search for than general icon makers. LJ SEARCH WHY ARE YOU SO HARD? (To me, at least) ;;.)

.../Lurks on your hugging icons.

Ah, well, you shouldn't use search, that is rubbish, you should use interests and use those to find communities. *sage old LJ user nod*

That is the only hugging icon I have one. This one... sort of expresses a bond between two people?

I remember once upon a time when I spent many happy hours in search, and then they changed it and it can't find a teapot when it is sitting in a teapot. :(( And I've never tried that! *DOES SO QUITE QUICKLY AFTER SAVING LOTS OF RED DWARF*

Ahhhhh. Well, it is a legitmate bond! I might just get a Red Dwarf icon of Rimmer/Lister and go THIS PAIRING IS LIKE A HUG AND SO SHOULD BE TAKEN AS SUCH THERE ARE NO FLAWS IN THIS ARGUMENT NONE~.

I have made a bunch of icons at various points in my life! Mostly Shakespeare with a couple of forays into Game of Thrones and amusing quotes from old history books and 1066 and All That, but you can find them all here. The 1066 set was my first and is actually pretty awful; I'm thinking of redoing some of it. There's also occasionally some good stuff at bard_icons. I think I posted a couple of sets that are only available there, and also there is plenty of lovely non-me stuff. ;)

My main sources for Simpsons icons are here and here. (Not the one on this comment, though, I made that.)

Eeeee, thank you very much! :DDDD I've already got a few from your Richard II-set (and am currently using the Henry/Richard one, because I am predictable like that. XDD), but now I have thousands more. Including hugging icons! AND BEATRICE/BENEDICT OTP~! (I'm also considering swapping out one of my icons for a Macbeth one, because I'm pretty sure that everybody knows my creepy feelings for that play by now. <<)

Late comment, but killcolor is a pretty good icon community.
