ik I promised you all this post ages ago and I'm sorry for taking so long. I am such a liar for it. Sucks to be me, I'm starting to hate my anal-ness over icons. I've been horading these fucking icons since February. It's ridiculous.
+38 Animated (Various animes + Disney)
+07 Video Games (Devil May Cry 2 + Katamari)
+35 TV Shows (Various including Game of Thrones, Parks & Rec, Doctor Who, etc.)
+47 Films (Various including Avengers, The Fall, Amelie, etc.)
+11 Other (Actors + Crap) lol gonna lure you all in with icons you've seen before bc it is funny. Btw I'm sorry for not splitting this batch.
I had the intention of doing so but then I realized I'd have to pick which icons went where and it didn't work out so well. I know some of y'all hate scrolling though icon posts like this (ik I do) so I tried to split my batch into smaller sections to help you guys out. ( The cut is here. Don't worry I've put all of my rambling under a spoiler tag.Collapse )Resources

Ah sorry for not replying to all the comments in the previous post. I've been terribly busy (& sick) so I haven't been able to properly sit down & reply to things. I have so much on my plate rn, it's cray. I'm getting through them tho, I must. Ty to everyone who commented btw. It means the world to me. ♥
ANYWAY I'm here to pimp a comm. A comm that I started planning...idk August/September? It's a multi-maker comm btw, w/e the world needed a multi maker comm w/ animanga makers. TBH I JUST REALLY WANT TO HOST A MANGA COLORING CHALLENGE. SOON.
GO. NOW. THIS IS OUR FIRST ACTIVITY.
GO. JOIN. US. lol @ the text being illegible.
I'm sorry world, forgive meeeeee.
I blew off most of my irl responsibilities today just so I could finish typing this.
IT'S HOW I PAINT YO. Holy smack, I never thought I'd finish writing this. I wound up taking longer than it normally would bc I was busy w/ irl. I'm slowwwwly getting though my to-do list, hopefully I'll get some icons done too. Sorry about that you guys, I still need to make your requests & other things I owe you. :( I only got this done bc it didn't require PS per se so I could do it via jotting down notes while doing irl stuff. BUT ENOUGH OF MY IRL, NO1CURR.
This guide's dedicated to Shawna (longerthanwedo
) bc it's her fault this got made. Before I start
I have to tell you that I have a bunch of different ways of going about things. Besides my way there's obviously other ways of doing things too. That means the way I do things are by no means the only way to do it. Take this guide as it is, a guide.
Take what you want & leave what you don't want, don't feel forced to use all of the techniques in here just bc they're here. Imo there is no wrong way when it comes painting considering the amount of techniques out there. Also I am by no means a professional, I'm just someone who likes to mess around w/ brushes & textures. :3 I'm 99% sure I'm doing it the wrong way any way but I honestly don't care. Just have fun & paint. :3 Try not to think about it too much.
I hope you can tell that all of the examples use different ~techniques, I had no clue on what to pick in the beginning. :( SO ENJOY THE GUIDE, MAKE FUN OF MY GRAMMAR & TAKE IT W/ A GRAIN OF SALT Y'ALL.
WORD OF WARNING: I do not shut up, I ramble. :( WORD OF WARING IT'S SOMEWHAT IMAGE HEAVY + THERE'S 2 GIFS + 1 VIDEO.( I'm watching Chopped rn & there's this prick who is pissing me off to not end. So fucking glad he lost, what an ass. I started writing this ~officially on Tuesday hence the Chopped line. Idk what do they show on Wednesdays? OH WAIT. >:3Collapse )
That's how I do it? GOD I DON'T THINK THIS EVEN *QUALIFIES* AS A GUIDE SINCE I'M NOT TELLING YOU ANYTHING USEFUL. I APOLOGIZE YOU GUYS, I AM TERRIBLE AT EXPLAINING THINGS. :(
IK YOU'LL HAVE QUESTIONS, LORD KNOWS I DID A TERRIBLE JOB. :( I'LL DO MY BEST TO PROVIDE MORE EXAMPLES & GO MORE IN DEPTH.
Also didn't proofread. Also sorry for disappearing for weeks. I've been rly busy. :( Sucks tho, I've left so many comments unanswered. ;A; I'M SORRY YOU GUYS, FORGIVE ME. ;A;EDIT: You guyyyyys I'm not going to delete it. I just had a ~moment of uncertainty, I wouldn't it delete it tho. Too much time went into this. 8<
lol I am not avoiding you comm. I just had a bunch of irl shit come up so I had no time for anything. I HAVEN'T EVEN STARTED MY REQUESTS/20INSPIRATIONS/SOLO20IN20 BATCH. ;A; BOOO. I wasn't going to post until I wrapped up a couple things but eehh I just wanted to post this.IT'S ICON TEXTUREEEEE TIME.
So I wrapped up animan
2 days ago & I wanted to give them a ty gift for how awesome they've been for the first three rounds. In the end I decided to make a texture set. IT'S THE FIRST TEXTURE SET I'VE EVER MADE TBH. HOPE YOU LIKE THEM, USE THEM, ETC. They were made thanks to erzsebet
's texture tutorial~ IT WAS FUN TO MAKE, I WILL DEFINITELY DO THIS MORE IF I HAVE MORE TIME! Any who here it is~( LINKS UNDAH HERE.Collapse )
I NEED TO STOP HIDING & STUFF. ;A; MUST ANSWER INBOX BACKLOG. ;A; SORRY TO ANYONE WHO HAS CONTACTED ME RECENTLY, I'LL GET BACK TO YOU SOON. ;A; I FEEL BAD. ;A;
Uhhh hi? Sorry for disappearing lately, I've been sick + busy with irl so I never have time to go online. ;A; Thanks to everyone who asked me questions in the Q&A post! I'm planing on doing a wrap up post for those questions soon, plus I'm planning on making a painting tut soon so look out for that! :3 OHHH BEFORE I FORGET~ I haven't started the requests yet but once I get a tiny break & get done modding animan
I'll get started in them. ;D PLEASE BE PATIENT. ;A;
OH SHIT AN ICON POSSSTTT~ Okay so these are the icons I made for the battle I had w/ my gurl dashberlin
. Lmao we started ages ago it's just that I sucked & failed at getting shit done. WE STARTED IN SEPTEMBER YOU GUYS. SEP-FUCKING-TEMBER.
Bless Emily's patience. ♥ Anyway below the cut are the battle icons! I had a ton of fun making them but at the same time I'm not too happy with them...? I experimented a bit more with these. I played with darker lighting & other dumb things I never do. I PAINTED (BACKGROUNDS, FACES, SKY, GRASS, ETC) IN 99% OF THESE ICONS, I FORGOT TO ADD THAT. :3 Also...I like making...simple icons now? WHA? This post also
made me realize that I need to start making artsy stuff again. ;A; I love the fact that when I make progress in one post I regress with the next. OHHH jsyk my defaults in this post. So ya, go me.

Soooo I've been meaning to do this for a while. I know I answered some questions
@ the "Ask the Maker" meme ages ago but the way I icon has changed a lot since then so I decided not to post the round up version of those questions. So after I was asked by some people how I do stuff in my last post + one of this weeks secrets
(I still creys) @ iconsecrets
I decided to open this. So here it is~ Ask me crap.
TEMP BANNER. :l
Ngl you can ask me anything & everything. I'll try to explain everything to the best of my ability. Also if you ask for tuts be warned I'm slow at writing them & suck at explaining things.
THIS ISN'T A LIE, I'M STILL TRYING TO FINISH UP THE TUT I PROMISED KIM

LAWL IT'S A ~MIRACLE~ A BATCH FROM ME. IT'S SO EARLY. I should win some type of time prize bc I finished before the deadline. (THIS IS EARLY BY MY STANDARDS BTW.) Also sorry for disappearing so much you guys, I've been terribly busy irl & whenever I manage to get online I'm tired. Any who I'm slowly making my way through my inbox so ty to anyone who has left me a message anywhere in the past 2 weeks. I WILL SAY TY, SOON... Plus my f-list. WHY DID EVERYONE SUBMIT ICON POSTS THIS WEEK? ;A;
35 Doctor Who
+13 mixed extras I had lying around (Gossip Girl, Kanye West, Kill Bill Vol. 1, Lady Gaga, Happy Endings, Spice & Wolf, & Odin Sphere)
So here's my 20inspirations
set. I decided to go with round nine's complex theme since I desperately wanted to do it the first time around but wasn't able to due to irl tragedies. I WAS going to pick epitome but then I remembered my idea was too ambitious & decided to drop it. BTW I WAS INSPIRED BY A TON OF STUFF THIS TIME AROUND SO PARDON THE MESS. Ngl I kind of like this batch... When I first started it I was like "fuck yeah, this is nice stuff" but as I started to make my way through the set I started to become semi-indifferent but by the end I was like "ok :l". I will say that I like the majority of them & I enjoyed making them all.
My hiatus helped immensely you guys, I don't hate iconning anymore & I find it fun again.
Well, when I'm inspired
. Plus I'm not bitter over my old work from this year. All I know is that I don't hate my icons or iconning like I did back in July... UGH ALSO I HAVE TO SAY THIS: I MAY BE OVER MY SWIRL LOVE BUT FFS IT WAS REPLACED WITH A SHAPE LOVE. :V SO IDK WHAT'S WORSE: SWIRLS OR SHAPES. YOU DECIDE. IT'S OVERWHELMING. FLAME. ME.
