This is a tutorial on how to make the following sig made for my guildie, sgtfalconca (of the SWTOR guild Relic):

From this wallpaper to:

This tutorial is for photoshop. I am using Photoshop CS, and I'm not sure if it works in lower versions.

tutorial, ho!Collapse )

And the end! Here's my layers in photoshop, as you can see from the numbers, I did this in not quite the same order, but I thought explaining it from bottom to top would be easier =P.
30th-Oct-2011 11:02 pm - Amazing art by Connie Tran
Just got my commission from iidx_girl, and it's amazing! You can see it here. I'll probably be making tons of icons and banners and stuff based off it because it's AMAZING~!
13th-Sep-2011 12:02 pm - 200 icons [Various] [graphics, icons]

Yeah, so here's a swack of icons for you.

Notes: There isn't really 200 unique ones. Lots of these are variations of each other, but enjoy anyway. I was trying to get back into the swing of icon-making since I haven't done it in, gosh, years, so some of them are a little ehhh...

Please don't hotlink or repost somewhere claiming them as your own. Credit is nice, but not required =). However, if you are using an icon with a fanart image, you must credit the artist.

[ 98 ] X-Men First Class (Screencap credit)
[ 10 ] X-Men First Class Fanart (by gikun here)
[ 20 ] Hamasaki Ayumi
[ 12 ] Koda Kumi
[ 10 ] Uncredited pictures/Personal Photographs
[ 26 ] World of Warcraft (Official art)
[ 24 ] World of Warcraft Fanart (here; here, here, here, here, here, and here)


Most Quotes are from either random poems ("bloody, but unbowed" is from Invictus, I think), cool sounding things from World of Warcraft (One Light in the Darkness and Alone in the Darkness are both achievements in WoW), or otherwise associated with the thing they're from.

These are random icons I found looking through some of my folders. Some of them are pretty old, others are more recent.

11th-Aug-2011 10:44 pm - Cleaning up the journal... [graphics, icons]
Firstly, new layout. Actually, it's the same layout with a new image and different colours, but I like it and I know it looks nice on most computers/browsers, so...

Image is a picture I took at the Zambezi River Delta, edited a lot.

I'm cleaning up my journal a lot, so here are the 30 icons that were supposed to be for 2 different 100 icon tables, but I never finished.

[20] Rikku from FFX
[10] Mokona from xxxHOLiC/Tsubasa

After the CutCollapse )
23rd-Feb-2007 02:27 pm(no subject) [graphics, icons]
woah. I haven't updated in forever. It's not that I'm not here, but I just... haven't updated XD.

Had medal tests this year, did really good (=^_^=) and I'm posting some ayumi hamasaki icons that I made!

All made using screens of "GAME" from SEASONS.


Real CutCollapse )

Umm.... bye XD
6th-Oct-2006 12:01 pm - More icontests o_O; [graphics, icons]
Okay, so I'm slightly obsessed, I'll admit. I haven't been posting a lot because when I'm not busy doing other things, I'm making icons for iconstests (or a very slow-coming new set for October or November) or working on my website or doing banner duty for memoirsicontest. At anyrate, I haven't really had a lot of posting time. So! I thought I'd at least show the icons that are currently involved - or were involved - with icontests. I'm very proud of how well I've been doing in japanawards, and even more proud that I'm acctually starting to get something in memoirsicontest. Not every week, certainly, but I'm managing to snag a second or third place occationally.

So! Icons. I'm putting it behind a cut 'cause it's long.

Icontest iconsCollapse )

I'll update about japanawards entries later, and about my first entry into ghibli_icontest!
26th-Sep-2006 12:02 pm - Another icon experiment.... [graphics, icons]
xmen, erik
This time with Hamasaki Ayumi. Here are 20 icons - 6 using a "sketch" effect on the original images, and then 14 variations on them. Enjoy!


Enter Hamasaki Ayumi!Collapse )
1st-Sep-2006 09:44 pm - ZOMG memoirsicontest [graphics, icons]
I won! First Place! *dances around like a crazy person*

I am sooooo entering next weeks contest!

here's my entry:

Oh, and there was the most gorgeous rainbow outside yesterday! It was a full arc across the sky!


Oh, and the new LJ theme is kind of weird, it keeps screwing me up whenever I look at it.
26th-Aug-2006 06:42 pm - 90, count'em - 90 - Miyavi Icons [graphics, icons]
Okay, this post of the "90 icons" is kind of... weird. Because the majority of the 90 icons are the same icons with slightly different effects on them (not seeing certian parts of the original icon, things like that). This is basically so you can pick the ones you like best. So, the first cut is 60 icons - the first one of a new image is the "original" and the rest are blocking out different layers or adding an exclusion layer, things like that. The second cut is my 20 picks of the 60 icons.

Then, we get into the "personal challenge" icons. The 3rd and 4th cuts are sets of 5 icons, with 5 different images. All five of them have the same, or almost the same, effects on them. Sort of like a "set." The "Texture Demo" at the beginning is to show what most of them were supposed to be based after. The first of these is called "soft" and the second "red."

Last, but not least - another personal challenge. I took one picture of Miyavi, and made a based out of it. Then, I went around and found various icon tutorials, and did them using that base. Some of them turned out great, and others... not quite as great. But there's 16 of them to stare at, and credits included.

Credits: 01, 02 - and the rest were from my friend so I don't know where she got them XD.

60 Random Icons!Collapse )

*phew!* that was a lot of coding. Hell, I hope I did it right 'cause I don't wanna have to look through it all *ded*
2nd-Aug-2006 09:53 am - Off to Scotland [graphics, icons]
Okay, so I'm off to Scotland. Well, soonish anyway. We're driving to Cow-town today to catch a better flight XD. I've got some icons for everyone... 2 of them are currently involved in memoirsicontest, so I'll just put them up later ^_^;.

EDIT: The two icons are added =D

Icons: 17

All HereCollapse )
29th-Jul-2006 09:32 pm - Sketches [sketches]
Okay, so these are acctually from a while ago, but I recently posted them to Eviternal so I thought I'd post them here too.

01: A Creepy Hand
About: Based on a picture in Tsubasa Chronicle that I did.

02: Black Mokona
About: Fanart of Black Mokona from XXXHOLiC by Clamp

02: Witch
About: Drawing based on Yuko-san from XXXHOLiC. The Japanese has nothing to do with the picture, by the way.

And That is all.
26th-Jul-2006 04:45 pm - An Image Edit. [graphics]
Okay, so I'm here. Having fun... making image edits. Well, just one really. I'm quite proud of it, as it is my first attempt at some more subtle changes. The main one is the colouring.

EDIT - Did another *very quick* version of the same picture. Spent a lot less time on it, but it still looks pretty good. I've also titled them. The first is called "Ice Queen" because of the pale of her skin and her blue eyes. The second is called "The Devil You Know" because I tried to turn her into someone devil-ish using reds and oranges.

You can also see the Edit as my new Layout Banner ^_^Collapse )
10th-Jul-2006 04:44 pm - Animethon 2006, Picture Preview [graphics]

Just a few of the excellant cosplays that were at this years Animethon. I don't have all the pictures yet, because a lot of them were on my friends' camera. These are just my selections from the ones I had. I also made them pretty ^_^.

Pictures behind cutCollapse )

BTW: Who can guess at all the characters and their anime's/games that they belong to? They're all pretty easy, and you'll have until I get home from my trip to guess ~.^.

P.S. - Packing is hard, and tiring.

Icons this a-wayCollapse )

Most of the KH ones suck. I know that, don't say it.

Posted in:

EDIT NOTE: If the icon doesn't have words, feel free to use it as a base ^_^.

Enjoy, and credits are loved but not a requirment.
