Hello everyone! This post is to let you know that I have MOVED! From now on (actually from about a month and a half ago...) I will be posting my icons, banners, and other graphic-making endeavors at abstract_static. As much as I love Kimberley dearest (assuringlynerdy , remember her?), I think it is time that I move on to a new graphics community. This one, it makes me sad to say, seems to have lost its life (if you could say it had any to begin with), and I need a new place to post my work.

In any case, I encourage you to join abstract_static. I think it's pretty awesome so far. Admittedly I've only made one post (with another one on the way in the next couple of days), but I think it's going pretty well thus far. Posts are made members only after one week, so definitely join and watch if you so choose. I'll see you guys there...

So. No one ever comments on my entries. It is more than a little distressing. I spend a fair amount of time on my icons and then all I'll get is one or two comments per batch. Really? Not cool. Therefore... *drumroll*

SPAM ME with good quality images of anything. I'm hoping that if you guys give me some things to icon, maybe I'll get more comments and therefore have more incentive to continue this icon making thing. There is NO LIMIT to how many images you can post. Please, I'm begging you, SPAM SPAM SPAM.

So, this post is sort of... all over the place. Some icons are from a really long time ago, and some I made just recently. It's sort of crazy. I don't know if I like this batch. But then again, I never particularly like any of my batches, so. I do, however, feel this is probably my best batch yet, which is good. Although I don't know what that says about me as an icon maker. Probably that I suck. Eh.

I'm not sure I like these icons, but I'm not completely ashamed of them so I think that's a good sign. I think that later I might write up a tutorial for the coloring that I used in most of this post; let me know if you'd like that. I'll try to post more often from now on now that I have a permanent copy of Photoshop.

I realized that there is nowhere where I have credited my resources, as I deleted the credit in my profile a while ago, and I thought I should do something about that. So here they are! A new icon post is on its way within the next couple of days, I promise.

oh yeah, we were intesne thenCollapse )

Hooray for another icon post! I haven't posted in a while. School sucks. And so do these icons, actually. I hope you can forgive me. Hopefully I'll get some more icons made during Thanksgiving break, but we'll see.

Sorry for... not posting in just about forever. These icons have been on my computer for an eternity, I just haven't posted them. Most of them suck. All of them except for like... four. Seriously. They are painful. I don't like them, but I need to post them and get them away from me so I can make a different post with icons I've made more recently and not have it be contaminated by the suckage.

I'd like your feedback on some schtuff as I continue making icons, etc. Because feedback helps me improve, and improvement is pretty awesome. I've been playing around with using more textures and stuff in my icons, and I want to know what you think.

some icons i've made in the past few daysCollapse )

I know that in the past I've been the icon maker who's been all, "Yay! Simple icons! Bright coloring!" but I recently applied to elitarts (and got in! Yay!) and ch4ndler (a really awesome icon maker, you should definitely check out her work if you haven't already) suggested that I do some more stuff with textures, etc. SO. I've tried some new stuff, and I want to know what you think! POLL TIME!

loosen your tie 'cause it's time to get crazyCollapse )

So yeah, if you could fill that poll out it would be super-helpful for me. Really. I will love you forever. And now I should go do homework. Thanks!
