Enjoy, and if anyone has any better ideas, let me know - the template is waiting and ready ;)

EDIT: These are piling up in the comments, so here they are again for your ganking pleasure! (I tried to keep the originator's ljname is in the icon's filename, for reference's/credit's sake.)






And my personal favorite(s):


Edit again! lizziesilver took these all and made them animated!

3:16PM - Gimp tutorial

I was asked earlier in an icon_tutorial thread how I got my desktop (specifically GIMP) to look like this. The desktop is a result of LiteStep, WindowBlinds, a wallpaper from the collection at Almost Smart, and some good ol'fashioned tinkering - but GIMP is entirely a product of said tinkering. So --

Tutorial time! Today's topic:

How to Make Gimp's UI Useful


Ready, boys and girls?Collapse )

3:13PM - Mirrormask icons

I just watched Mirrormask the other day (I live in the backwoods of nowhere, with no hope of having seen it in theatres), and was floored...it was good! Absolutely stunning visually, of course, but with a lot more subtlety and humor than I expected. I caught a few tips-o'-the-cap to Princess Bride, Pinky and the Brain and a lot more, and finding the little easter eggs made for even more exciting movie watching :)

Today, I'm mostly treading water at work, so I made icons. Here's some:



And here's the rest!Collapse )

6:23PM - Horace quote icons

I was knocking around online, reading one of my favorite pieces of literature (that which would be Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses) and afterwards went looking for literary quotes. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I did come across a page of Horace...and found him, unsurprisingly, bitingly funny.

The result: icons. Naturally.



Wisdom is not wisdom when it is derived from books alone.Collapse )

6:29PM - Mrs Bitters? I think a pencil is lodged in my brain.

26 Invader Zim icons, how fun! Mostly textless.

A couple:


The restCollapse )

Enjoy! Comment, credit if you like (I enjoy it, but it's not like I did terribly much here!), love Zim, and don't hotlink. That about covers it!

6:56PM - Cute (irreverent) icons!

I came across a couple of pictures, and then went searching for more ;-) If anyone has any other picture/caption suggestions, I'll be more than happy to make 'em - I had fun with these, and would love more!

Most of them are just cute, one was made for me to use on metaquotes and therefore may not be quite so innocent ;-)

2:03PM - Firefly icons

Just a post to get all of these out there - they've been slowly accumulating on my hard drive for awhile now, and I'm getting tired of looking at them :) They were made for various challenges, because I wanted them, or because the screencap was there and I was bored, so the styles vary pretty widely.

If you find anything you like, you know the drill...comment please, credit, and don't hotlink or i keeeel you!

10:40PM - Tutorial: Jadis, Queen of Charn

Since I was asked so nicely by vulcanprincess6 how I did these, I figured the best way to explain would be a tutorial!
They're not terribly difficult, but the cut is quasi-image heavy. Picture is worth 1,000 words, and all that ;)

From this to , and from this to .

Follow, followCollapse )
The icons were requested at iconrequests by imagine_peace, so please don't use them yourself without asking him/her first. Thanks!

7:16PM - Weebls Stuff, yay

Whoohoo, posting again! It's truly absurd, I don't even feel very graphical today (all my other attempts got stuck at the .xcf phase...I figure I'll go back and finish 'em eventually), and yet these managed to get cranked out.

Only in Kenya:

And one base, 'cuz it's cute:

Comments and credit are lovely (and a nod to Weebls Stuff/Only in Kenya wouldn't hurt, either ^^), and if you hotlink I'll hunt you down with hot branding irons.

1:18AM - Colorization tutorial

Tutorial time! Labyrinth's Sarah makes a wonderful subject, and I thought that some of these tricks were pretty nifty. This is done in The Gimp, and it's translatable to PS/PSP/etc.
