I took #A46… Well, no real reason for that, just because of the "Bunny fail". It amused me…
Will credit naturally.

And I also must have a look at your old entries, because unfortunately and accidently, I deleted a good part of my files and your icons with it. *sigh*

Kangaroos certainly show their rabbit similarities when they're that white and fluffy. All they need are pastel baskets!

Don't you hate when stuff like that happens? You are most certainly free to do that, and there's a and idolhandy link for it too. ;)

OMG the gorila's one I think is called "copito de nieve", was in a Zoo in Barcelona years ago. I love so much that gorila. Nature give us such amazing things. Fantastic icons :)

Oh really? I seem to recall seeing a program on him and the name being Snowball.

Yes, nature truly does. It is interesting to see the unusual variety.

These are so cool! What a special icon set you have created. I love the open quote to for the icons too.

It means a lot when other icon makers take a moment to offer their opinion. Thank you so much!

I hadn't realized how many different species had experienced albinism before. These are absolutely beautiful!
☆: n - skintheidolhands on December 17th, 2009 02:59 am (UTC)
Although this is a subject I find fascinating, there were species that I had not seen before either!

Are they? I remain somewhat insecure despite managing to still have the confidence to expose my odd appreciations. However, great thought was put into variety and subtly that would showcase the natural beauty of the subjects.
Virginia Fell: creator destroyervirginia_fell on December 17th, 2009 04:46 am (UTC)
Took a bunch of the animal ones. 2, 3, 28, 36, 38, 47, 77, 85. Will credit if I use 'em!

Thanks for these. They're beautiful.

Huzzah, specific feedback!

Thanx right back!
Trel: Evangelion- Kaworu facetrellia_chan on December 17th, 2009 05:01 am (UTC)
Oh... my.... god.... every single one of these is so beautiful. I intend to pick my way through them and save some. I'll let you know which ones I take when I do.

These are very pretty. Is A70 an otter? Reminds me of the cutest of albino animals, the ferret!
☆: n - turtletheidolhands on December 17th, 2009 04:32 pm (UTC)
Oh my goodness, that is cute and it has fairy wings! You guessed it correctly, it's an otter and one caught impromptu in the wild, as opposed to a zoo.

I really appreciate you saying that. Thank you!

It's always my hope to connect or deepen appreciation with these tiny works.

I've given in and started an Idol Hands Icons file, it seemed easier. ;) This time I've run away with H23, A73, A11 and A10 - the last two have a wonderful magical quality to them which appeals greatly.

You have fascinating interests and this collection is a very nice reminder of how beautiful different can be. Thank you.

It generally will be. Would you believe that I've literally got them for my imagination as well? Perhaps you would, as you're kind enough to appreciate my interests. I have always appreciated natural skin tones, and it seems a shame that our society fixates undue attention on tanning.

Thanks for the specific feedback. I liked just saying, "albino hedgehog", in a matter-of-a-factly tone.

I saw an albino miniature donkey today. It was adorable and hanging out with a bunch of other miniature donkies. I tried to get a picture, but it was standing in front of a fence, and my window was dirty and I didn't want to get out of the car because I was near the dump and it smells really bad there.

I'm aware of that surreal crisis in Africa and it was part of my reason for driving myself to post this (not to mention my life-long interest).

I have albinism, and wow these icons are just amazing! I'm glad there is someone out there that is showing albinism in a positive light.
☆: n - featherstheidolhands on December 17th, 2009 08:23 pm (UTC)
Hearing that from you and someone from iconsofcolor is a real treat! As you can see, I had quite a lot of difficulty limiting my appreciation of the subject. ;)

i love the people ones especially H33, and H58. snagging that one:) gorgeous. love that you've captured humanity here. it's beautiful
☆: n - skintheidolhands on December 18th, 2009 05:12 am (UTC)
Humanity regularly gets on my very last nerve, but when I think about us as a whole, what I wish for...it's like this post. I'm glad you're feelin' that and thank you.
Sarahorangesunshine on December 18th, 2009 12:21 am (UTC)
Gorgeous batch! The animals...and the people are so lovely. Thank you!
☆: n - featherstheidolhands on December 18th, 2009 05:13 am (UTC)
Since there is a charming winged creature in your icon, allow me to mention here that the albino bird from this post is actually a (not so) red-winged blackbird.

Re: love the icons!
They both have very long, thick hair. The vintage pictures, taken of a family of European albinos is actually the same (H35 is the father). H12 chose to grow his hair and beard quite long as well.
rogue_quill on December 19th, 2009 06:00 am (UTC)
These are such beautiful images- I've taken A3 and will credit when using :D
☆: n - 鱆theidolhands on December 19th, 2009 04:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much!

It's a bit of a shame, though it always amuses me, to know that humans are far more impressed with the albino peacock than the peahens that he shakes the feathers for!
Tia: Hollymadame_undine on December 19th, 2009 07:36 am (UTC)
Lovely icons - I yanked a3 and h53, maybe a couple more (haven't decided) and I will of course credit. I've been sort of fascinated by albinism since I was like nine, and I find all of these absurdly gorgeous. <3 It's so interesting how it's a condition spanning countless species, from humans to crocodiles to peacocks, regardless of classification or genus or whatever. And it's kind of insanely pretty on all of them.
☆: n - turtletheidolhands on December 19th, 2009 04:54 pm (UTC)
It's so very nice to meet someone who understands/feels as I do!

And thank you so much for taking a few of the icons as well. I keep many files on other people's work myself!

I just wanted to comment that i love all of these, especially the people one (and the tiny baby turtle gaaa)

There was a boy at my uni that was albino and I think maybe I looked at him a lot when I saw him but that's only because I thought he was beautiful. Like..the opposite of me and my dark hair and eyes and skin. In the end I love the topics of your icon posts. You're pretty wonderful.
☆: n - turtletheidolhands on December 21st, 2009 06:48 am (UTC)
You're always welcome to take or store any of them away, but I certainly thank you for looking and saying such a nice things.

mellifluous_ink on January 3rd, 2010 07:12 am (UTC)
H39 and H40--do you know his name? He's very handsome and I want to see if I can find more photographs of him. I took h40, btw. Will credit, of course.

Also--and I'm just trying to be helpful, I swear--those peacocks are of the white variety, not albinistic. /nitpick

I've saved a lot of the animals. :) I was amused by the funny captions, and pleased by the cropping. If you haven't already done such a set, it would be great to see a future post with arctic animals and also those that change their coat colors, such as the ermine. As always, will credit with use. :)
