I mentioned last week that I had a ton of icons to post, but I haven't felt like uploading or posting anything this week. So, more old icons are forthcoming. I do also have 3 sets of claim icons that need to go up so I'm doing those tonight. If I feel like it, I'll also post some of the old ones I mentioned finding on my hard drive. Various fandoms on those.
One of my childhood memories is watching Superman I on TV at my grandmother's house. I don't know how old I was, but we moved when I was 7, so I couldn't have been much older than that. I think the Krypton and Fortress scenes enthralled me almost as much as Arrakis did when I watched Dune at Rene's. (I wrote about that when I posted my Dune claim icons.) Then at some point, my parents actually took my brother, sister, and I to the drive in to watch Superman III. I also used to watch the old George Reeves Superman with my Dad, so the Man of Steel and I have a long history.
I like every film and television incarnation of Superman, but I think that since Christopher Reeve was my introduction to the legend, he will always "be" Superman to me. Superman II is my favorite (Fortess...Krypton...shippy Clark/Lois goodness...is anyone surprised here? Yes I AM this bad.) Anyway, stormtrooperjoe
commented on my Jor-El icon, which reminded me that I'd never finished iconning these movies. So, I hopped on over to icons100
and made a claim on the first one. Got finished that and started browsing through caps for Superman II. Ended up claiming Clark and Lois on iconic_ships
for that one. But then I did the whole movie, plus variations on the sleeping scene like crazy. So, I'll also have a couple of insanely large posts on Superman II.
Jor-El is my favorite character, so you'll see a lot of him in the sets from the first movie. I'll have to make an alternate/extra post later, as usual, because I ended up with well over 300 icons from Superman I, and a lot more Jor-El than you see under the cut here. Also, it took some doing, but I finallly came up with a method of lighting Krypton that still makes the icons LOOK like Krypton but makes the characters clearly visible through the weird shadows that drove me up the wall on my last set. Hope you guys like them, and I hope it works as well as I think it does.
*Happy sigh* The only time you can get away with a red, yellow and blue icon table is when you're posting Superman icons. ( A Friend )
