This is my first post in a little over two years. I hadn't posted on LiveJournal much in general. Once in a great while I would make an icon, but I never really had enough to post. I started poking around LJ a bit more over my Christmas break at the end of last year and started to work on icons again. I just always found it kind of relaxing to listen to music and mess around with icons, so I decided to give it a try again. I've got a few batches going for different fandoms, but this first post is a stock post. I made a batch of Valentine's Day icons a couple of years ago and never posted them, so I thought I'd share them now along with some newer ones I made this year.

I recently came to the realization that I haven't posted any graphics in nearly two years. It isn't that I haven't been making them; I have been making them less, but I haven't ever really stopped either. I will make banners or icons on occasion, usually for myself. Many of them do end up sitting on my hard drive where they collect dust, and I'd like to start posting again. I do miss working on icon batches, and I still find it fun; I just never really felt like I had the time, which is unfortunate because I tend to find playing around with my graphics program relaxing (until it crashes and I lose my work that I haven't saved anyway).

Since it is the holidays, I've brought you some Christmas stock icons and banners. As always, let me know if something looks off (I've been worried my coloring lately...I feel very rusty). ...And this post may have come earlier if the internet had not decided to just go out in my area.

*One icon in this batch contains some swearing from an Avril Lavigne lyric - for those who may be concerned.

You can count on me like 1, 2, 3, and I'll be there...Collapse )

Messing around with screencaps/actual people because I haven't in a while (as such, this post feels a little hit or miss), so I was playing around with coloring to see how it would work on Glee caps. I also decided to do a couple of things with composition that I don't normally do. Please let me know if something happens to look grainy. I'm a bit concerned about that at the moment. Also, I'm in love with Bruno Mars at the moment, so you get a few text icons with song lyrics on them. :)

I know it's been a rather long time since I posted any graphics. I didn't really have any motivation, but I'm trying to look around at resources and other graphics to get some inspiration back. I would like to post here more often, so that's one of my goals at the moment.

Meanwhile, I've had this set of icons on my computer since ...May? I'm not sure why I never posted them, but here they are. I do not know if I'm going to do more from the series or not. It's hard to say at the moment because a few months ago, I was more than happy to work on these. It will depend on how I feel later. I was mostly playing around and seeing what worked with the animation. I've mostly discovered that I need to figure out how to color the caps without making Pikachu look like a lemon-y blob.

There's a couple of older icons in this batch that I never got around to posting. I've got a few other ideas in mind, so look around for those soon.

Found a bit of inspiration for cropping when going through some David Tennant pictures (apparently he's good for that). I also wanted to practice with some black and white images since I don't do that often. John Mayer has quite a few, so there you go.

It's been a while. I haven't had much inspiration for iconing, so this was sort of an exercise to get me back into it. I just don't have a subject that I'd like to work with right now. If anyone has any suggestions, throw them out there. I can't guarantee that I'll use them (if I don't know it or don't feel it, I just can't), but hopefully some will help me out a bit.

A Happy Holidays to you if you celebrate this holiday season. ^_^

According to the rules, I don't normally do this because I have no time. The lack of posting lately should be enough of an indication that I don't. However, since my classes have ended, I do have more time on my hands at night. Since it is the holiday season, I'm offering icon requests.

Because the comm here is fairly small, I won't place a limit on the number of people who submit a request, but I will ask that you limit your request to 3 icons. I have a handy little form below if you'd like a few. Simply post the form in your comment for every icon you would like (limit of 3).

Keep in mind that this was offered to my f-list at my journal first, so those requests would take priority since I know anyone over there took a spot first.

Any specific text:
Images you would like used:

As far as images go, I am not a miracle worker. Provide me with something larger and of good quality.

I'll be in an out, so wait for me to respond to your request. I'm still gone most of the day during the week, but I'm not running around at night like I was before, which means I have more time for creating graphics.

My computer's been a mess lately. I had to do some serious clean up to it. I might have posted these a little earlier if I hadn't had to mess with it, but everything is mostly back to normal now. Anyway, I was playing with the radial blur and textures on some of these (not really sure how I feel about them...probably wouldn't use the radial blur again). Also, please let me know if the coloring is too vibrant on certain icons.
