I come bearing Narnia icons, and a couple of a stock image I took a liking to. Some are alternates. Most any inspiration has taken an extended vacation, much to my annoyance, but I hope to get some more done in the next few weeks and hopefully in some more genres. Any suggestions, anyone? :) I'd like to do some more quote icons, either poetry or books, as well, we'll see how that goes. Anyway, Narnia.

Check the rules (userinfo). Resources are listed there as well. I still need to update it so if there are a few uncredited people, that's why - it will be updated in the new few days if not tonight.

A meager offering, perhaps, but I'm actually proud of myself for getting anything done. >_< I'm sure most of you probably gave up on this poor journal lol but here you are, nonetheless.

I'm baaaaaaack! [03 Jan 2006|09:08pm]
[ mood | rushed ]

All right, hiatus ended at last. It's been forever, I know, thank you so much to those that have hung in there. It's been unbelievably busy up until now, but I finally have had time to get some new icons done and I'll post some old ones that have been lying around. I hope every one had a lovely Christmas and New Year, by the way!

I'll probably be dabbling in some new fandoms, experimenting as always, hope you like :) I'd like to revamp the journal a bit, as well, so we'll see how that goes.

Remember the rules, por favor. (see userinfo) Resources also listed there.

A lack of time and inspiration have already made posts few and far between, and my schedule is constantly filling up more, so I don't have all that much time right now to make icons. Even when I do have time it seems my muse has escaped from me. So, just for the time being, maybe a month or two, I'm going to put my icon journal on hiatus. Again, it's temporary, I'll be back once life settles down and I've got some ideas again :) In the meantime, you all have been so great and encouraging, and it means the world, so thank you, and hope that you have a blessed next month or two :) Until then.

Little mini I'm-not-dead-yet! post. :) My summer is drawing to a close, which means I'm heading home, and I'll actually have time to start making icons again. I've made a few over the summer when I've had spare time, though, so here you go. Not amazing, but I'm starting to go back to what I used to be good at (image blends) instead of constantly changing my style. So some of this is the result of that, some is more of the faux invisible stuff. Hope you like them.

My First Ever Tutorial ... be gentle... [13 Jun 2005|05:29pm]
[ mood | accomplished ]

Okay, so I lied, it was the second to last entry for the summer. >_> lol dreaminoflorien requested a tutorial for the following icon, and I thought, "Hey, why not?" Now, I'm not the greatest in the world at explaining things, so we'll see how this goes. Anyway, here we are, my first tutorial. Hope it helps somebody :) It's for Photoshop 7, but perhaps it can be translated?

I'll be going away for most of the summer in a couple weeks, so this may be the last update for awhile. We'll see if I get time. :) Some of the icons took on sort of a Renaissance painting look...not sure why that ended up happening, but it's different, so I tried it. I tried my hand at the fragmented look that seems kinda popular right now. Anyway, same rules as always, which are in the userinfo. Oh, and if you can't read anything (small text, etc.) and are dying to know what it says (lol) just ask.

I'm not dead! I swear I'm not dead! I've had a million and one things to do in the last month with about two seconds to breathe and two more to sleep. But to prove I am still alive, here are a few icons for your enjoyment. They are only a few, with a couple variations due to said things to do, but summer is coming, and soon I'll have a little bit more time and hopefully more inspiration (which is fast running dry...). :) Hope you all are doing well.

Well, my computer power cord gave out on me, and so my battery can't be charged. I had these icons in waiting and was hoping to make more before I post them, but it looks like that won't be happening for a while. Alas. They're not the best because I was messing around with new styles, so they're kind of rough. Oh well.

Sometimes, I hate technology. :) Remember the rules. Enjoy.

Short post before I leave for a few days. A few LOTR ladies (Arwen and Eowyn) icons, plus some made from the Myst computer game series. I don't know if there's anyone out there that's even heard of it let alone likes it as much as I do (enough to make icons LOL) but I'll post them anyway. :) Never know. As usual, comment if taking, credit is necessary. Check the rules (userinfo) :) Have a great rest of Spring Break, all!

So I decided to try my hand at making some textures. I use them often enough, and they're not too difficult to make, so...here we are. 30 textures, or bases, or whatever you want to use them for. They're mostly color textures, with some light textures thrown in. Comment to let me know what you're taking, and please credit. :) Made from stock photos at Stock Xchang

Yep, I'm alive. lol :) Don't have too much this time. I've been occupied with a drama production (stage crew) lately, so that sucked away most of my time. Many of these have just been sitting around in the folder collecting dust >_< So here you are. Sorry there aren't more...creativity is scarce.

Well, I've waited so long to post because I was trying to redo an LOTR songset I posted long, long, LONG ago (so long I'd be floored if anyone remembered). I got half done, and I'm really starting to get tired of it, so apologies for the incompleteness, but the half I did get done turned out okay, I think. I just really didn't want to leave the original the way it was, because I love the song so much, and I wanted it to look better :) All I did to the original was crop it and throw text on. Well, anyway, that's here, along with two extra LOTR icons, a couple Spider-man 2, and one Phantom of the Opera. Hopefully I'll be doing more of those two fandoms in the future. :)

So, here you are, 18 icons in all.

Read the rules first please.

I was hoping to have some done with a Christmas theme, but alas, no such luck. From various fandoms, mostly LOTR, with a few old contest entries I never got around to posting. Hope you all have a happy holiday!

Only a few more today. Some are a little repitious/along the same style but they're all a little different, and besides I was having fun experimenting with the style. :) I was trying to aim for doing characters I have mostly ignored thus far, but I got diverted. XD I hope you enjoy them! Happy Thanksgiving!!

Aha, I live! :) I come bearing only a few icons, but creativity seems a bit scarce lately, meanwhile homework abounds >_< Well, anyway, I took some of the suggestions you gave me in the last entry (thank you so much!!) and tried to work with them a bit. I'll continue to draw from them. Enjoy!

I have a question for y'all. I'm working on icons when I get time, and more should soon be on the way. This was homecoming week, which means zero time. >_< But anyway, question.

What character/fandom would you like to see that I haven't done or haven't done enough of?

I can't do a poll, sadly, because I do not have a paid account. But if you'd like to comment and just tell me maybe what you'd like to see more of, it'd be a great help in the process of making icons. And it helps me know what ya like ;D So what do you think?
