Quote icons for Ava

It's been a while since my last post; in that interval my external hard drive crashed (we've yet to see if anything can be recovered from it--and it had all my bases and screencaps on it) and life's gotten more hectic. I had a couple icons made for this one, so decided to get one more and post it.

This set is made up of quotes from avian_dryad's quote posts. The patterns in all three are from About.com free Photoshop downloads. #2 & #3 use border brushes by icons_with_love.

1. mathematics is nothing more 2. mind over matter 3. I want to retract my retract

Comments are matter to a black hole (or something like that *g*).

Holiday_Wishlist icon requests

The fun part about going through holiday_wishes is you never know what request you'll see next. Some people request icons, and then it's fun to take a look at their profile and see what they like. I've done that for several people so far--a few I already had existing icons I just pointed them to, but some I got creative and made new icons for.

#1 uses a screencap by jadeleopard from one of the screencap comms (I can't remember which any more). #2 uses a border by quebelly. #3 uses a base by cathedralscream from basicbases, a brush by even_art, and a border brush by icons_with_love.

Amethystium - Autumn Interlude

Yes, it *has* been a good long while since I posted! Finally I've had some time to work on icons during break, and finally did this set.

These icons are from Amethystium's song Autumn Interlude. The words are as follows:

Feels like I could reach up
Into dark October skies
Scoop up seven of Orion's stars
Hold them like shiny diamonds
Then I turn and return
to a world less than I'd like it to be
Strange thoughts staring at the stars
On an autumn's night


I redid one of the icons, not being satisfied with the first one--all five are below. #1, #2, and #4 use bases derived from Flickr photos. #3 uses a base by enriana from obsessiveicons, and #5 uses a base from an APOD photo.

A couple icons, and a "poll"

OK, here's a tiny post, but I figured I ought to show what I *did* make over the summer, which was, well, nearly nothing.

The base for these two (both from The Last Samurai, if you couldn't tell) is by thevixxmeister from basicbases. I used part of a picture from EPOD to filter it some, a brush by inxsomniax, and a border brush by iconswithlove. I couldn't decide if it was OK just by itself without any text, so there are two versions for your perusal. Please let me know which you think is better and why.

I'll have time this weekend to make icons, but *which* icons is the real question. So, in lieu of being able to create a real poll (and because hardly anyone comments on here anyways), I'm going to present a list of options (most are ideas I've had marked down to work on for some time now), and ask for which set I should start on first:

A. set of icons from Amethystium's song Autumn Interlude
Lyrics: "Feels like I could reach up, into dark October skies. Scoop up seven of Orion's stars, hold them like shiny diamonds. Then I turn and return to a world less than I'd like it to be. Strange thoughts, staring at the stars, on an autumn's night."
B. set of icons from darkstar's amazing X-Men poetry
C. set of phobia and science icons from The Phrontistery
D. a set of textless icons from various movies and such, playing with screencaps, filters, and attempting to try things with brushes (or, alternately, ones with text, but I'm not so good at pairing that, I'm afraid)
E. misc humorous or experimental things, much like the last post
F. something I didn't mention? (as long as it's realistic, lol)

If you have time, please let me know what you'd like to see. :)

Some X-Men related and more

Both #1 and #2 come from the summary to this fic. It also provided the inspiration for the design of #1. *g* The brush on #1 is by quebelly. On #2, the border brush is by icons_with_love, and the other brush is by parrotdroppings. I can't remember where the text on #3 comes from (somewhere in the ether of the Internet), but it uses a brush made from the graphics at this site, as well as a border brush by icons_with_love. #4 uses brushes by quebelly, even_art, and icons_with_love. The caps for #1 & #4 come from jade_leopard at cap_it, I think. The base for #5 comes from ellettra from basicbases (and text from one of avian_dryad's professors), and the pattern for #6 comes from Hybrid Genesis. Brushes on #6 are from even_art.

Three misc icons

*tries to post again for the umpteenth time in five days*

#1 was a request by beansideirae, and uses a brush by lovetheories. #2 uses a pattern from Hybrid Genesis and a brush from Digital Goodies. To understand #3, take a look at this thread. The icon uses a base by enriana from obsessiveicons.

Request set of writing icons

This set is a request by ksarasara, made in this post, featuring a couple lines from a poem by Richard Siken. Sara, I whipped 'em up kinda fast, so I dunno how well they fit what you were wanting . . .

#1, #2, and #3 use bases by feathered, from obsessiveicons. #4 uses a free About.com pattern, a border brush from quebelly, and another brush by icons_with_love, both from brushaddicts.

A lot of text-only icons, with a couple picture-based

Finally, I've had some time to play around with brushes more, and make a bunch of these icons that have been waiting for forever.

Cutting all the credits so it doesn't take up the entire previewCollapse )
