Old crap that's been accumulating over the months. I've been too busy to make icons, which suuucks. But I'm taking March off so I can do cool stuff. From this post onwards, wallpapers will be in multiple sizes! (Except for the crossover one in this post because that one's super old, but I doubt many people are interested in it anyway.) I'm not making 26426 different sizes; I took a look at the poll, and most people have the same resolution that I have, so there will be that, and the respective biggest possible version of each popular resolution, so if your screen is smaller, either shrink them down, or just use them the way they are, which should work.

Hello everyone!

A very random batch, most of them made for challenges. And a lot of experimenting! I'm not as happy with these as with those from my last batch, but I wanted to get these online now, before I'm too busy, cause I'm starting uni in a little more than a week. :D

It's been a while since my last update, but I've been incredibly busy. I'd been making contest entries only, until last night, when I wasn't able to resist the urge to photoshop anymore. Hee. :) I think I'm finally getting where I want to be as an iconmaker. I know I've said that before, but this time, I mean it. I've been working with text more, and I think I'm slowly getting better at it. (On a related note, I wasn't going to post #31, but [ profile] lindsey_grissom said it was her favourite.) Enjoy!

Experimental batch is experimental. (Yeah, I know, that didn't go too well. I'll go back to my usual style now, lol.) But I found a new fandom and a new character I love, which is why I started trying new things.

It's been a while... I blame the moodtheme, I was all photoshopped-out once I finished it. But now I'm back (hopefully). In addition to that, I'm slowly starting to get my Bones iconing mojo back, which is great! :D

A very random batch because I haven't really had time to make icons recently. That'll hopefully change soon, though, once I'm done writing the huge fic I'm working on at the moment.

That show... I do not have words to describe how much I love that show. Icons from 4x12 A Disquiet Follows My Soul, random Roslin and Adama, and (who would have thought?) stock icons! I'm starting to experiment with those again. Very simple for now. I only just realised how much I missed making stock icons. :D

I guess I don't have to mention how ecstatic I am. Therefore, icons. Those are really random, I'm slowly starting to work with textures and it's going to take a while, but I'll get the hang of it eventually. And I hate animations.

I made this for [ profile] mary_fan who requested a video to that song for the 2008 Secret Santa at [ profile] adama_roslin. It's the first video I've made in ages, and the last one I'll do using Windows Movie Maker. Evil program!

As for youtube, I recommend choosing "watch in HD" right under the bottom right corner of the video before watching. Trust me, it'll look so much better. Downloads: Download file, change .bsg → .wmv!

More BSG icons, yay! ;) I really wanted to make more of that pretty show, but I was too lazy to search for pictures, but then I remembered my Mini Series picspam from a few weeks ago, and how I had meant to turn some of the pictures into icons anyway. And that's what I did. The best thing about this batch: It has almost every character! Not just my few favourites. *whistles innocently*
One more thing: Starbuck, stop being so frakking pretty in black&white! Boomer, too! And 6!

Heylo! This is my first real BSG icon post. When I started watching the show, and then really got into it (reading fanfic, saving icons off of people's userpic pages, slowly finding graphic comms etc), I thought I'd never start making icons because there are so many talented iconmakers out there already, people I'd never be able to compete with. But [ profile] alias424 told me to suck it up and make icons already. (Of course she expressed her opinion much mor eloquently than I just did.) Anyway, here I am, and I have to admit that making BSG icons is so much more fun than making any other fandom icons. ♥ The show is just so so pretty. I can't help but saving tons of screencaps and then turning them into icons.
It took me a while to get into this, to get the colours right and all those things, but I'm actually quite satisfied with some of these, especially towards the end of the batch. BUT since I should not be here right now, since, in fact, I should be working on my uni presentation, I'll stop rambling now. ;) Enjoy! And yes, there is a reason why I usually stay away from text.

Completely random, but I figured this was better than nothing, right? ;)
I apologise again for not being around at the moment, but that's going to change, I promise.
Those are all old-ish icons (except for the BSG ones), which means I made all of them on my old computer. That's why they might not really look nice. xD And most of these were made for LIMS challenges, that's why this batch is so random. Sorry for that. :S
