Notes;
What are you guys watching right now? As much as I dread caphunting for a new fandom, I am in need of new shows. My hopes that 2016 would bring me a host of wonderful new network scifi shows...not even met in the least, so I'm looking for some recs. If there's something you've been loving lately, let me know what it is!
Also, I have icons! It's a fairly tiny post, mostly motivated by me wanting to get these icons out so I can start fresh. At the beginning of October I was having tons of fun trying new things and making cool icons, but lately I feel like I've hit a decline. So, here is a post that is wildly inconsistent, but hopefully you like some of the things. As always, I ♥ your feedback and comments.



I need to change. Fetch me something gay. )

I made half of these for [livejournal.com profile] theiconthrone and then I was having so much fun that I just kept going so now there is a full set of them!  Snag the .zip from Box; no individual uploads this time because I wanted to get these up tonight before I forgot again.

I am back with icons!  Most of these were made for [livejournal.com profile] theiconthrone and [livejournal.com profile] turbo_rumble, both of which are great comms that allow me a lot of time to make very few icons and thus fit my iconning practices perfectly.  I'm definitely still feeling a bit rusty but I'm getting back into the Photoshop groove again :D  As always, comments and/or concrit are super appreciated (and thanks to everyone who already provided a lot of helpful comments on my turbo_rumble set!)


We are very close, Captain, aside from a complete absence of evidence, suspects, or leads. So in conclusion, not at all close. )

When I posted challenge #12 over at [livejournal.com profile] theiconthrone, I just wanted to get people talking about resources they loved to use, and the ways they worked them into their icons.  Somehow it did not occur to me that I would have to talk about them, too.  Textures are pretty much a way of life for me, so here are some of my favorites I've collected over the years, along with a little bit of me talking about how I use them.

Texture talking )

So, uh, there we have it!  Some textures for you to try.  All of them can be found in a gallery here; please be kind and credit the makers of each if you use them.  If you see a maker in this post, they also have a blanket recommendation from me for making wonderful textures.  I hope you found something new (or rediscovered an oldie-but-goodie) to spice up your next batch!

For round 2, challenge 1 at [livejournal.com profile] theiconthrone.  I couldn't not do this challenge, and it was a lot of fun (though it's been a little while since I've done something like this)!  This theme was kind of a tough one for me to figure out at first - it is quite inspired by the postmodern movement, also slightly by the cyberpunk genre, but it turns out that it's kind of hard to make an iconning inspiration post that's based on postmodernism?  All the same, I attempted to use icons, music, videos, and textures to capture an aesthetic that speaks to the postmodern crisis. It was fun, and it was a challenge, and I do hope you enjoy it.
We are the sum total of our data. )

Um. Hello? This is a clean-out post that contain icons I made a very long time ago and icons I made a very short time ago, plus some from unfinished sets in between those two time periods. I've been getting the itch to open PS again and if that ends up happening on a regular basis, I want these out of the way. Be warned: this post is all over the place in terms of quality, because apparently it gets hard to make icons when you haven't been doing it for awhile. Who knew! Perhaps you'll find something you enjoy anyway.


"What do you want, Adam?" To feel awake when my eyes are open. )

I wasn't going to do one of these until I realized that I said at [livejournal.com profile] icon_talk that people should do it even if "you've made about two icons this year (like me)". So. Thus begins the saddest progression post I have ever made. :c

Happy 2014!  I wanted to get this set posted before the new year, but events conspired to keep that from being the case...but three days off isn't too bad, knowing me. ;)  This post is a clean-out post (with icons from [livejournal.com profile] supernatu_elite and [livejournal.com profile] wonderous_stuff), a holidays post, and the first part of my 101 watchers celebration.  Thanks to all of you for sticking with me!
I tried to make this post a mix of all my favorite fandoms, and hopefully it includes something that will catch your eye as well.  If you want any textless alts hit me up; I was too lazy to save & upload them all before putting this post together.  Other comments and concrit are always welcome.

Thank you all so much for your support! Whether you leave long flaily ramblings, two word comments, or simply pressed the "watch" button, it's always wonderful to see you here.

I want to do something to celebrate this milestone, but I'm gonna be honest, my muse flies out the window as soon as I do requests.  However, I've been putting together a couple of end-of-the-year posts, so if there is anything you would like to see, now is the time to speak up.  You can suggest...
icons: fandoms, characters, or specific caps (maybe).  If it's a fandom that isn't one of mine, please give me caps!
resources: textures or psd made by me; resource collections from other places.  Be as specific (or not) as you want
general things for the icon community: if you want me to make a praise post or comment on people's posts or anything, really.  I just want a chance to give something back to all of you who make this place fun.

A quick tutorial for [livejournal.com profile] deternot who asked about my coloring in this icon. This is not going to be exactly step-by-step because I’m a tad busy at the moment, but I do hope it gets the idea of what I did across! If you have any questions after, don’t hesitate to ask.

I'm sure I would have something witty to say if I remember making half of this batch, but as it is, I cried when I discovered six-month old icons that I'd never posted.  So have a mess of things I've made for challenges, et al., during the second half of this year.  Apparently.  Anything you don't like is probably from the beginning of that time period.

23 Revolution

Notes;
LOOK, ICONS!  For round 20 at [livejournal.com profile] inspired20in20, we had a free-for-all, so I made a set for round 18 (Expect the Unexpected). I was bummed when I didn't finish my previous set for the theme (all those Doctor Who icons in my last post? Yeah, that was attempt #1) so I told myself I would power through this time and get it done! I did.  I chose Revolution because a) I just got caught up with it at the beginning of the month and b) I've been wanting to make a Revolution set for a long time.  I didn't mean it to be 50% Charlie, but I guess she has the best caps??  Yeah. Oops.
This post is a weird mess of photoshop, how do and let's make weird things because of the theme!, and there are some icons that did not turn out as I thought they might.  Then again, I had a few pleasant surprises along the way. :)  Your comments and concrit are always very, very welcome!

This is a dump of pretty much everything I have made so far this year (which is not much. Boo, school), mostly for random challenges/comms: [livejournal.com profile] likethegun_lims, [livejournal.com profile] rumblr, [livejournal.com profile] supernatu_elite, [livejournal.com profile] wonderous_stuff, and an unfinished batch or two from [livejournal.com profile] inspired20in20 and [livejournal.com profile] theiconquest.  Since it's made over such a large span of time I doubt there's a whole lot of cohesion/consistency; I know I would change things on a lot of them buuut if I did that I wouldn't post for another month. :P
As always, I appreciate your comments and concrit. Thanks for sticking with me. ♥

Welcome my official clean-out post of 2012! \0/  It is surprisingly (and disappointingly) small, seeing as how I haven't posted since September. Boo, me! Here you will find full of half-finished claims for [livejournal.com profile] inspired20in20 and [livejournal.com profile] a_mused, among others.  There are also miscellaneous icons from challenges I did finish, like [livejournal.com profile] turbo_rumble and [livejournal.com profile] supernatu_elite.  Thanks to all of you for sticking with me in 2012, and I hope to see you in 2013!

This is a long overdue clearing-out-the-folders post, including icons for various challenges that I always thought I'd wait to post until I had a bigger batch for that fandom.  My muse and schedule, however, were a bit against that idea, so I'm just going to cut my losses and post now.

Since I apparently can't make an icon to save my life, have some caps instead.

[livejournal.com profile] deternot and [livejournal.com profile] sgmajorshipper requested a grunge guide from me, so here goes!  Though I tend to make a lot of grungy icons, I'm not going to claim that I know all the grunge techniques...but the ones I use are covered here.
