[livejournal.com profile] starletfallen/ordinarygirl@DW has come up with an absolutely fantastic meme.

Y'know, it bothers me, often, how almost all the PB sets out there (or, really, people with enough expressions to be USED as a PB) are models or actors or otherwise preternaturally pretty people. There aren't enough NORMAL people as PBs, and I have plenty of times wished for a less-pretty PB for a character who's supposed to be... not drop dead gorgeous.

So I've decided to try to start a meme-like thing amongst us RPers/icon-makers. It's very simple.


1. Take 20 or so pictures of yourself making various facial expressions. (Or more, but, y'know, at least 15-ish to fill out a free LJ account)
2. Make icons of them
3. Post them for other people to use in RP if they'd like.


Teasers:




If you decide to take, please credit to [livejournal.com profile] martyfan. Feel free to mess around with colors, borders, shading, special effects, whatever you'd like, so long as original photo credit comes to me. I'd also appreciate links to where the icons are being used because I'd dead-curious about what people would do with my face. ;)

PB = Played-By. It's an online roleplaying term for the actor/model/real person whose appearance is being used for your character. So for example, if I was playing a Marty McFly, his PB would be Michael J. Fox. If I had an original character, or a cartoon character who I want to be represented by an actual person, or a character from a non-visual fandom (like a book series), I'd find someone who looks similar to what I want and use them for a PB.
