This community is officially closed.

I've already posted my next batch to beatfrommyheart which many of you were kind enough to friend. Thank you all for your support, it means so much to me. 

Hopefully anyone else who wants to will come over to the new comm, and if not, thank you for joining me here. I've loved this comm, goodbye and I hope to see you all around LJ in the future =)

This community if officially closing, as I am moving to beatfrommyheart

I have enjoyed my time posting at this comm immensely, and appreciate every single person watching this comm. Thank you for your support, and I hope that as many of you as possible will join me at my new graphics home.

But I know a lot of you joined this comm a long time ago, back in the early days, with Twilight and Taylor Swift icons, and seeing as I hope to most smaller more frequent posts, I don't wish to impose on the people who no longer have any interest in the subjects posted here. I can also no longer keep my resource credit list in order, as it dates back 3-4 years; Therefore I wish to be able to give the people whose textures I do use the appropriate credit hence another reason for the move.

All future posts will be at beatfrommyheart

I hope many of you will friend the new comm, but I am putting on the tin what will be there: TV mostly, and some film graphics, including but not limited to Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Fringe, Game of Thrones, Glee, H50, Coldplay, Being Human, Haven, Misfits, The Borgias, Downton Abby, Torchwood, various other British shows, and any other fandoms that may take my fancy in the future =)

And once again, a massive thank you and my love to you all.

Finally proper post! Ideally, I would have split this in two, but I'm really disorganised, so it's all in one huge post. And just a quick thank you to justmyb0nes , for always being so unfailingly amazing and kind, and a huge apology to juliet42 , I promise the icons are coming, and I'm really, really sorry they're not done yet. Every time I make something I decide I hate it and delete it. But I will get them done really soon.
These are a bit different to usual, I've gone off the crazy colouring stuff (rejoice!) and been using more text and playing with composition and black and white too, so hopefully there's something here for everyone =)

Tutorials - A Guide to Icon-Making the Illogical Way With Colourings and Tips =)
Featuring Peter Bishop and Camelot.


From this to this, an example of an average icon I would make and how I'd go about it.
Featuring the lovely Kay of Camelot, extending backgrounds, light blobs and other techniques.

And I feel alright with you, Baby I'm getting thereCollapse )


I got PS on my laptop tonight, and here is the result of the last few hours work. Normally I'd wait and post a bigger batch, but a) I don't know how much time I'll have over the next few weeks (especially with a Big Bang soon), and b) I don't really know if I like these very much, and they probably look really different since it's a different computer, so sorry.
There's a few made from the spam images, and some other random stuff too.

40 Icons
Fringe [10]
Skins [8]
Being Human [7]
Merlin [6]
Misc. (Hawaii Five-0, Glee, The Vampire Diaries) [4]
Misc. Males (Ben Barnes, Alex Pettfyer) [5]
