26-27 Aang and friends

So, um. How I ended up making a hundred plus A:TLA icons.

I liked the show a lot, and when I watch shows in genres that are relatively unfamiliar to me, I try to pay attention to the structures of the genre so that I can figure out what the show is trying to do. Anyway, one of the ways I do this, sometimes, is through screencaps and iconing, because screencaps and iconing involve figuring out how a show frames the characters and the scenes, how it conveys emotion, how it plays with space and color and things.

And I liked Avatar, and starting with the second season -- I'd watched the first mostly while doing other things -- I started screencapping it to try to get a sense of the genre, and then I started iconing it, and then I didn't stop. And then today I was having a shitty day, and I thought, fuck it, I will just upload all those icons that I made and then enjoy looking at a table filled with all the awesome characters from Avatar. Because they are awesome. Hang on, I'm gonna go be reminded of how awesome they are some more.

From: [personal profile] were_duck
OMG I had to scroll past because I am still in season one and don't want to be spoiled, but I am definitely coming back to savor these later. Are they for sharing?

I really like what you said about screencapping to figure out framing/emotions/what the show is trying to convey. That's a great way to approach the visual language of the show.

(I really like it, and would just snag it happily except I am greedy and want to see the others too!)
