colors of the rain [do not take]

(no subject)

Hi, this is _facade (formerly known as akutsu) speaking. It's been almost 2 months since my last update. Today I bring forth to you good and bad news.

The bad: I would no longer be updating _metamorphic with icons.
The good: Alas, all is not lost. Ac has just decided that she was getting lonely posting icons all by herself here so her icons will be post at __elysian instead.

I haven't decided what I want to do with this journal, but I have a good feeling that this would either be a place to dump my random gifts/graphics or I shall no longer update it.


Anyway, an icon update at __elysian. Head down there for icons!!

This is, well, mainly to account for my absence in the next 2 months. I might be back to post a couple of icons after 3 weeks before disappearing again. The reason behind it all: school. I've been missing out a lot on school and I can't really afford to slack off this year, since I want need to get into a good university. And besides, my grades mean quite a lot to me, even if it don't really seem to care much about it.

And well, if you want to, all of you can suggest some themes/characters that you would like me to work on after my break and I'll do my best to get it done. I'd prefer to work on something that I've actually watched though since I always seem to be so uninspired with the text and all. So suggest if you like.

Never let you go

19 fo banners and 1 wallpaper.

Oh and I realisd I forgot to plug some icon journals that I've been wanting to plug for weeks. Visit i_con_u, iconthesis, iconcerto, phantome, konayuki, starlikedice and riddle_icons. They all make icons that are much much better than mine.

Anyway, before you proceed, if you take any banners be sure to comment and credit _metamorphic or _facade somewhere visible in your journal. Do not direct-link the banner and please note that the wallpaper is for personal usage only.

Hold my hand

I know, another 3 weeks. But it really is a crappy and huge batch of 270 icons, 19 fo banners and 1 wallpaper this time around, since I attempted a '100 unique icons' target. And there are a hell lot of repetitive icons as usual. ^^; So just pray your computer doesn't crash while it loads. Edit; The banners and wallpapers will be on the next post, as I figured it would really slow down the loading time.

This batch is a pretty messy and rushed job since I only started a few days ago and I was trying out several new effects and all, so don't be expecting much. I planned on posting FoR, PoT, HxH and more FMA, Gackt, Naruto but my stamina died down on me. The text on a good number of the icons are pretty messed up, so I might be correcting some of them in the next batch (so don't take any to use as bases), if you have any suggestions for what text should be placed on the icon, feel free to share it with me.

I'll probably be cross-posting these to several communities so if you've to see it more than thrice, I apologize. Also, this might be the last time I'll be posting icons here as it was getting a little lonely down here, so I might be opening a new shared icon journal with my friend, so stay tuned. _metamorphic would not be closed as I intend to change this into a graphic journal and instead of posting icons here, I'll be posting wallpapers, fo banners and other random stuff.

And so, the usual rules apply: Comment and credit _metamorphic or _facade in keywords.

... and you watched me fall;

My server problems has been resolved and my exams are over, so I'm finally here to present you with my iconage. Since I took more than a month to post this batch of iconage, I'm going to make it up to you by sharing with you a huge batch of iconage. As huge batches tend to be lower in quality for me, since I get bored after making a large number of iconage, thus, do not expect much from this batch.

There are 203 ugly iconage (many of which are similar icons) and 5 friends only banner. As usual, some of the icons can be used as icon bases but please do comment and credit if you plan to use them. Very few Gackt and *sobs* no Roy iconage this time round, since Gackt and Roy aren't cooperating well with me. I'm probably cross-posting this to a zillion other communities, so bless your soul if you have to see this more than neccessary.

The usual rules apply: Comment and credit _metamorphic or _facade in keywords.

And gomen, on_dope. I am not done with your Akabane iconage. Can't seem to make an acceptable icon of Akabane.

Late, as always.

I'm late, I'm always late, but late is better than never right?

Thank you all, really. I <3 you all so damn much. Icon-makers and people who actually comment and credit. <33

Oh and my icon updates will probably be even later, since my server is currently facing some problems, so I'm actually unable to log into my FTP. I'll upload it as soon as my server is functioning.

Edit: I re-read the stupid mail I received from my host. Might take them till end of June to actually fix their servers [andthatislikethreedamnmonths] so I'll upload my icons to photobucket instead if my server is still not functioning by then.

I'm still on hiatus, but I just wanted to say, please do not claim my icons as your own and/or direct-link them. I hate people who direct-link with a passion. >.>; Though it only makes me more aware of their stupidity as they are leaving traces of their theft. My bandwidth is going to suffer. ;_______;

So far I'm only able to identify flyingteapot's, kirakins's, fairypark's and tiringil's there but I am certain that I saw a good lot of these icons somewhere in LJ. >_______>;

This isn't an update, but rather it's a HIATUS post. My exams are just around the corner so I don't think I'd be able to find the time to be online, much less make icons for 2 - 3 weeks.

In my previous post, I posted a query, which I figured no one noticed, since everyone probably saw the icons first ^^; So yeah, I hope, now, that without the icons someone might take the time to tell me if you would prefer my future icon batches to be posted in bulk or in a smaller package but much more frequently?

So during my absence, please visit the following icon journals which obviously have more and prettier icons than _metamorphic: i_con_u whiteout_icon __iconrosis longpatrol starslikedice

Iconage *__________*

It hss been weeks since I last posted. I don't mean to be so infrequent in my updates, but I tend to prefer posting my icons in bulk. So please take the time to tell me if you would prefer the icons to be posted in bulk or in a smaller package but more frequently.

There are 38 badly made icons here this time, some of which could be used as icon bases, but do comment and credit if you're planning to use them as icon bases. I tried to go with the softer look this time and I seem to have failed miserably. I guess, I'll have to try until the icons look right with the softer look. Oh, and I cross-posted the icons to several communities, so I'm sorry if you have to see this message more than thrice once.

Abide to the rules. Remember comment and credit _metamorphic or _facade in keywords.
