It's been a while, I know.

I ran out of excuses this year, and got talked into NaNoWriMo. In a fit of, "wait, what the holy hell did I sign up for?!," I whipped up a few quick and simple text icons.

Happy Halloween!

Shock! Awe! I'm posting icons!

The two are slightly different. There will be a bigger batch down the line (won't there always)? But I wanted to get this one in here before the 17th. ;)

Subject:Holiday & Event themed Gradients; PS7
Time:12:08 pm


This is a file of gradients I've been accumulating for years. It has some holiday-and-event themed gradients -- Christmas colors, Halloween colors, fall and spring colors, that sort of thing.

Being credited on a Big List 'o Resources (icons_by_etoile or etoilepb) is nice if you do that sort of thing. Enjoy!

Ahoy there. This journal's not dead; I just really haven't had the time for graphics-as-hobby between spring and now.

There's a huge redesign of my website coming up; the archives of icons there will be much clearer and easier to access. In addition, resources of mine -- tutorials, brushes, etc -- will start appearing on the website as well.

In the meantime, here are a few samples of stuff I've been squeezing into spare time this summer. Enjoy. :)

Subject:8 (4) LOTR icons
Time:08:19 pm
There are 8 icons here, but they're really text-included and text-free versions of the same four icons. The whole thing began when I saw that Arwen screencap and realized how much it looked like a Renaissance painting. I know I've done icons kind of like this before, but I can't help it. To me, something about LOTR demands muted tones, antiquing, and a certain kind of framing.

If you'd like some specific text on one of them I've saved the *.psd files and I'd be happy to add it, but please, don't modify these yourself. I spent weeks trying to figure out how to make that Arwen one -- the first of the bunch, and probably the best -- click.

Rules are in the icons_by_etoile userinfo, but are standard: comment good, credit good, hotlink bad, and so on.


1a.) 1b.) 2a.) 2b.)

3a.) 3b.) 4a.) 4b.)

Enjoy. :)

Many of these have actually been posted here in this icon journal before, but I'm making like everyone else and consolidating community posts, so now they're all here at once, heh.

Credit is good. Comments are better. The website is woefully out of date. Hotlinking is bad. You know the drill.

The rest are Faramir, RomanceCollapse )

I have completely and utterly broken from my standard for the first two... don't be expecting to see much of this business in the future! :-P

As for Faramir, I just got tired of not posting him.

Enjoy!

I promise, one of these days soon you'll see graphics here instead of resources. In the meantime, I'm sharing the resources I've got. I've been using these to make the textures I've been sharing (and the green and red texture sets, which aren't up yet).

As always: credit is good (being listed in a Big Post of Resources is fine); comments are better.

Oddly enough, I saw fit to make something I almost never use myself, because I think it's fun to make gradients.

These were made in Photoshop 7.0.

Save. Enjoy. Credit (any ol' place) is good; comments are better.

Hullo! Doing just what everyone else does, I'm sharing a texture set and a gradient set that I made and use often.

As always, comment if you like them. I like comments! If you use them, you should probably toss icons_by_etoile on whatever you use to list your resources.

The gradients are for PS7; the textures are *.jpg files and should work in any program you use.
