9:56 pm - Misc. Mutts & Vassar Tree

I haven't posted since November?! Right, sorry about that. I made the Vassar tree ones in October (from a photo I took years ago) and the Mutts ones in February.

9:56 pm - Movie Icon Post

The perceptive may have noticed (if anyone follows along that closely) that there are a couple of icons in the banner that haven't been posted yet. I made some of these quite a while ago and haven't posted them because...I wanted to do a movie post rather than little piddly individual posts. Yes. No, seriously. Fine then.

This started in concept as a movie poster theme, but I like scenes from Center Stage so much more than the poster.

9 Center Stage
3 Last Life in the Universe
1 The Man Who Fell to Earth


Let's go to the movies!Collapse )

9:40 pm - New Journal Banner!

I've been wanting to do this for my icon journal for a while. I'd seen others with examples of their work either in sidebars or in their banner and I like the look of it in the banner for my layout since the background is so stark. Like how the colors pop on black. There's a snapshot of my work so far. Pretty cool to see what I've been up to with this thing. :)

8:39 pm - My new crush: Eva Green

So I should have caught on once foxglove_icons said Eva Green was gorgeous and amazing and totally the hottest thing on two legs, but...call me dumb. It wasn't until I saw Casino Royale (twice! coming up on thrice this weekend!) that I became a convert. This woman is not only a great actress, but TOTALLY HOT. *ahem* It also just so happens that The Dreamers is the next movie on my Netflix list. I've been meaning to see it for years. Ah, timing. :)

5 Banners (1 Friends Only, 1 Locked)
4 Companion Icons

I'm making her my new layout. Starting with this:

I followed a link to this print earlier today and found the illustration so compelling I had to make icons.

12:13 pm - Requests

Just so I can keep track of them better, this will be the post you should reply to if you have a request. Banners, icons, colorbars, etc. Any ideas welcome.

As for as my general policy goes, in most cases I'll be happy to add text or whatever to my work as a request, but I prefer you don't do it yourself.

I'd be honored if you want a commission/requested piece. I can't promise it'll be done immediately, but it will get done. I'm also usually happy to make banners into wallpapers or vice-versa (when possible - if I haven't saved the photoshop version it can be impossible).

As far as frequently asked questions (FAQ), I've seen this work on other sites. Ask a question here in a comment and I'll post an answer.

9:31 pm - Request from zephyrdragon: No One Cares!

Saw this Hugh MacLeod drawing and just *had* to make a banner for Lia. It's a family joke. Various options under the cut. Let me know if you like the idea of one of them, but want a little something changed. Or whatever.

Banner options and how to creditCollapse )

4:23 pm - Typewriters - Prodigy

This idea has been knocking about in my skull for a while now. The inspiration is the Intro to Prodigy's album "Music for the Jilted Generation". There's a sound of typewriters (dings and typing keys) while he says, "So - I've decided to take my work back underground...to stop it falling into the wrong hands." Works well as a Friends Only or Locked journal banner. I'm using the first one on my profile at eftsoons.

7 Banners

5:41 pm - Update

I have a few projects I want to tackle, but I haven't started them yet. Work has been insane and I haven't had the free time to make digital art recently.

I have plans for:
-a very specific friends-only banner (the idea has been knocking about in my head for a while now)
-Jasper Fforde banner/icons (definitely dodos - great idea, Emily). Perhaps more books. Nursery rhyme characters. That sort of thing.
-More Jean-Baptiste Mondino art. His photography is still haunting me.
-Banners in general. Maybe my interest is moving to making banners and creating icons out of them rather than straight tackling icons.
-Trying out some cool tutorials I've seen lately. I can't wait to experiment with various layer-types.
-Other stuff I'm sure

This is mostly for my reference and a personal kick in the pants. But...it may be a while. Ooh..I should icon the photos of the Golden Gate Bridge I took this weekend...So busy!

current mood: busy

7:33 pm - Jean-Baptiste Mondino Angels

Made these last night. Two gorgeous photographs by Jean-Baptiste Mondino made into headers/banners (whatever you feel like calling them) and icons. I'm happy to put your journal name or any other text you'd like on these. I'm on a kick with Mondino. I have a bunch more to work on.

2:42 pm - Tea and Books (stock) - request from my mother

My true loves. My mom wanted an icon for her work IM so these are for her. (EDIT: Aww, she's using #13. I'm so proud!) Free for the taking (with comment and credit) to anyone else as well.

This is my first time working with stock images. It's an enjoyable experience - everything is beautiful and well-lit! Very little color correction required. Makes it more challenging to alter the images in a pleasing way.

4:27 pm - Request from eternalsolace

Ana Beatriz Barros header (5 versions)

These are all pretty similar, but let me know if one or another is going in the right direction or if you'd like a different type of color/font/whatever.

I used a few different blurs, amped up the red, and other subtle stuff like that.

10:53 pm - Natalie Portman in Red

See? See how guilty I felt? I posted icons. Now do you feel sorry for making me feel guilty? Of course not. You got icons, you silly people.

I actually like these a lot. Made them March 26th. Yikes. Sorry, guys.

3:07 pm - My bad

Just in case anyone actually watches this journal -

My bad. It's been WAY too long since I've posted icons. I believe I have some yet to post on my computer, but it has been a while since I've made any. Very busy with work! But I have ideas and I need to start creating again. So stay tuned!
