1 icon texture pack

1 icon texture pack. Look, I debated whether or not to post these - I have a personal rule about posting textures that I find pretty, but not really useful. I feel these probably fall into this category, but dang it if I didn't have some fun making them. So, anyway - here are some textures you that you and I both probably will never use. Who knows - maybe it will spark something?

3 Icon Texture Packs (310 individual textures in total)

Hello all, happy belated New Year! I've been gone a spell, snowed under with work and study and life. I've been saving up all my textures that I've made in fits and starts - I just didn't really have a chance to post them until now. In this post you'll find all 310 individual textures and download links to the three texture packs they belong to. I uploaded one of these back at the end of July last year (crumbs, really? 2018 sure got away from me!) so apologies if you've seen it twice already.

I'd sure like to say 2019 will be different, but it's already shaping up to be another bonkers year. We'll just have to take it as it comes at us, won't we? :)

190 icon texture pack

190 (!) strong texture pack - I know, I know. I need to get better at not leaving them all to post at once. It just really sucks (read: I am just ridiculously lazy) having to upload them all :P

They are in a little bit of a mess - try as I might, imgur just kept uploading them in a weird order, and their reorganise option sucks bananas. And come'on - there's 190 of them! That would take forever, and I might never get to actually posting them. If you download the zip, I swear they look prettier ;)

Warning: There are 190 individual icon textures under the cut. Do not click under there if that bothers you.

26 GoT Icons

20 Game of Thrones icons and 6 alts made for Round 11: Story Book at monthlyinspo.

Game of Thrones would arguably be one of the most successful book adaptations of recent years. I suppose it could be considered a bit of a cop out choosing it as my subject, so in an effort to stretch more into the storybook theme I've dabbled in a bit of a crossover with the text. Excluding the icon of the Hound, the text all comes from the The Nevernight Chronicle series and they are seriously great books, if you are into adult epic fantasy:

In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

I tweaked the words slightly (using "lion", instead of "wolf" for example) and protracted some of the quotes to fit, but it's pretty faithful to the source material. The books definitely have adult themes, so it fits quite well with GoT.

Also, I had to include an icon of Sam in the Citadel library - seemed fitting. Too many books, too few centuries... ;)

2017 Icon Retrospective

So, 2017 huh? What a year, what a year. For me personally, I took a few knocks (which kind of shows in my posts) but the end is in sight, and I'm feeling much more positive about the future. As crappy as some parts of the year have been, I guess now is a good time to have at look back at what I managed to put out on the creative front. You can definitely see my moods change with my colour choices. I wouldn't really call this a progression post (I'm not sure the quality has improved at all) but it's more of a 2017 icon retrospective.

I was curious, I did some quick and dirty maths to figure out how much stuff there was - 320 icons (not including all alts and rejects) and 1020 (!!!) textures. Let's take a slide down memory lane... please note these are based off the month I made them, not the month I actually posted them.

I probably won't have a chance to post anything before 2018 hits, so I hope you all have a fabulous holiday period, and a happy new year! :)
