This Livejournal is officially CLOSED indefinitely. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be picking up graphics again any time soon. In the off-chance that I do, this entry will be deleted and updates will resume as they used to be when I was active.

I will remain active on my personal journal, nausicaa17, as well as on a newly-made public blog I plan to unveil over the next few weeks. Until then, thank you all for your kind support! This would never have happened without you all, and I am forever grateful. :-)

Graphics: Football (Soccer) Icons — Nationalmannschaft

Sep. 12th, 2008 | 07:40 pm

I made these icons ages ago, but I hope they're still worth a look!

25 various icons on the Nationalmannschaft, with a few of Chelsea, Michael Ballack, and Harry Kewell thrown in. (By the way, numbers appear above the icon!)



This was a project born primarily out of the lovely Strenesse photoshoot of the 'mannschaft from 2006. :)

Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it"s much more serious than that.Collapse )

Feel free to friend me if you like what you see! Also, if you've got any suggestions for what I could do in the future, feel free to comment! I could use all the help I can get!

Graphics: Stock Icons — Sky

Sep. 29th, 2007 | 10:31 am

I'm a little surprised at myself for forgetting everyone here for so long, but even more shocked that people still have me on their friends' pages! (That's the real miracle.) The good news is I'll have more computer time now than ever, so I will make every effort to update more.

Until then, it might be safe to consider me on unofficial hiatus, but anyone who makes the effort to follow my journal would know that. ;-)

And now, to business!

20 random stock icons, made using Photoshop CS2.



I was tinkering around with Selective Colour in PS one day and thought the sky would be a nice subject to work on. Of course, it got a little off track. :)

Why dost thou look upon the sky?Collapse )

Textures: Old Scratches Set

May. 14th, 2007 | 09:35 pm

Dear Livejournal,

I have not forgotten you! School has not been kind to me and exams are coming up impossibly fast. Luckily, I managed to sneak on the computer this weekend during break and dug up an ancient set of textures. (Old is gold, right?)

Made in PS CS2 one day whilst playing around with the pencil tool.

Textures: Colour Theme Set #01

Dec. 26th, 2006 | 09:49 am

Greetings to all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I'm sorry for the long absence - clearly, working and going to school at the same time has its disadvantages.

However, I come with a gift! This could possibly be the start of a new series of textures.

Brushes: Ink Splatter Set

Sep. 8th, 2006 | 11:00 pm

A while ago I made some ink splatter brushes in PhotoImpact, but never got around to using them. So now that I've found them, why not share?

As you can tell, these would be used best as a background for an icon, or maybe even a polaroid? You could also use it like any other brush as well.

Tutorial #2: Using Polaroids

Jul. 28th, 2006 | 10:26 pm

After my last resources post, a lot of people asked me how to use polaroids in icons. So, for the benefit of all, I've decided to write a tutorial on just that. (:

Lesson #2: Using Polaroids (Single-Frame)

We'll be making the icon I put up as an example in the last post, going from this to this:



Level: Beginner, but I'm assuming you know your program pretty well. No long-drawn explanations on where certain tools are. If you need help with that, go here.

Note: If anyone needs further clarification on this tutorial, you're more than welcome to ask questions!

Say cheese!Collapse )
