4th-Jul-2015 07:55 pm - Sense8 icons
tv → sense8; fight for it
20 Sense8 icons and 10 alternates for Round 48 at inspired20in20. The theme was Geek Out! and honestly, I could not have picked a better show for this round, since I smashed this show so hard on Netflix. There were several days in row I showed up to work with bags under my eyes, cause I just had to watch one more episode the night before. Love, love, loved it. And it was soooo pretty to watch. Even the opening credits are beautiful.

Aside from that - for the most part, I tend to take away mainly colours of inspiration posts, so I tried to limit that and branch into different ways of expressing the themes. The word gifted stuck out, the show being what it is, but wasn't really enough, so I also picked out off-centre, and tried to apply this to (some of) my cropping. For someone who used to dislike centre crops, I had a surprisingly hard time sticking to this one. After that, I went after trying to emulate some of the text work and composition, which, lets be honest, has never been my strong suit! But I struggled through for a few icons, and then moved onto using some of the provided textures, or looking for similar textures in the provided icons. Then I caved and went back to my old standby, colouring to round it out. Quickest I've ever finished a claim. Shocked my socks off.

Anywho, onwards into the fray - as usual, comment, credit if you so wish and enjoy.

O hai! Sorry I have been so slack at updating these past few months, I've a had a been flat out like a lizard drinking in real life and I haven't really been able to manage cross posting these here. So, you may have already seen these posted to my deviantart account - sorry if you see it twice! I have a bit to catch up on! So, hold onto your butts.

4 icon sized texture packs and 10 large textures. That's 370 textures all in one post - wowzers! Have you ever seen anything so majestic? ;)

10th-Feb-2015 11:48 am - The Vampire Diaries Icons
tv → the vampire diaries: lips
20 The Vampire Diaries icons plus some alternates for Round 43: Year of the Goat at inspired20in20. This show is sort of my guilty pleasure. I tend to binge watch it if I am home sick, or having a lazy day to myself.

I was very much inspired by the visual aspects of this post. Pale for the most part, with the occasional "strongly" coloured icon thrown in. Also, since the prompt stated that the Goat is creative, I tried to be a bit more experimental in my use of texture. If I have said it once, I've said it a thousand times - for someone that makes a lot of textures, I don't tend to use many at all. I think when I did a rough count last year, it was almost at 7,000 individual textures (big and small)... yeah, I've been doing this awhile. I keep telling myself, this needs to change, and since one of my packs was part of the prompt (which I still have to post here!) I should put my money where my mouth is. Felt a little narcissistic to be honest, but here we are. I also tried to use some of midnight_road's as well.

Anyway, onto the icons.

vintage  →  japan
70 art icons - I use the term loosely. This post contains everything from fine art and vintage photos to weird vintage advertisements. You may notice a pattern in my iconning ;) I apparently like weird, relatively obscure stuff. Ah well. It is what it is.

As usual - take, comment and credit if you so wish and enjoy.

2 100x100 icon texture packs up for grabs. Been trying to clean out my hard drive of older icons and textures.

As usual - comment and credit if you so wish and enjoy.

131 art icons - everything from fine art to weird vintage advertisements. Some of these are quite old now, I've been pretty lazy about posting them. May be a bit of boobage in these icons, so be warned if that offends your sensibilities. ;)

As usual - take, comment and credit if you so wish and enjoy.

12th-Jul-2014 06:42 pm - 27 Arrow icons
art → flowers
27 Arrow icons - 20 for the challenge at inspired20in20 plus 7 alternatives. I have a real love/hate relationship with this show - sometimes I really enjoy it, and other times I feel the writing/characters are stupid and they annoy the crap out of me. Still, it was pretty enough to icon!

I'm not going to go into the ins-and-outs of the inspirations behind each icon, but mostly I was inspired by the words and theme in general. It was a bit of struggle, as I don't feel I am doing much all that well when it comes to icon making these days, so I found it hard to think of things that I felt I was "best at". /shrug There are some in here I really like, and others not so much, but such is life!

I used quite a few of the provided textures by pamkips, scoobyatemysnax and pandavirus as well. There was one particular texture by pandavirus that I used on a lot of the icons, haha! So my thanks to them for letting me shamelessly abuse them! :)

vintage → swishy skirt
I'm back! With 1 icon texture pack and 15 super large light textures for individual download.

The full size of the big ones are HUGE - they range from 6.55MB up to 16.00MB. Sorry for the huge file sizes, but I get a lot of comments asking for larger sized textures, so I here we are. The full size download is 4912 × 3264, but the DA preview is 1600 x 1063, if that's a little more manageable for you! The links below are only to the the larger previews.

China was awesome! I found it to be a very inspiring and intriguing place, but I tell you what, there is no place like home! Everything here are made from photos from my trip. Yes, I was that weird person in the Forbidden City taking close ups of the flakey paint and other interesting textures, haha! I do have more large textures to post, but I figured this was enough for the moment. I took just over 2500 photos, so it's taking me a while to go through them. :P

Anyway, as usual - take, comment and credit if you so wish and most importantly enjoy!

26th-Apr-2014 06:09 pm - STICKY POST - HIATUS
vintage → tea time

soaked will be on hiatus while I am off in China for a month having an adventure. I'll likely be back to posting after July 2014 (I return mid June)

Until then, take care comrades, and stay sassy.
