To boldly go.Collapse )


Hello, everyone! I know it's been months and months since I've last posted, but I'm here to announce that that's all about to change! :) Land of Art has started a new round, so I will be working hard to keep up in the challenges... which means lots of new graphics! In fact, later tonight I will be posting my first batch of new graphics! (And surprise, surprise- they won't be icons for once!)

Come join landofart! Land of Art is a pan-fandom graphics Land Community, where different teams compete for points in a variety of challenges over the course of several months. Not confident in your artistic abilities? Not to worry! There are a wide variety of challenges available (some don't even involve making graphics!), and most points are earned through participation. Don't worry that Phase 3 has already begun- people come and go all the time. It's a lot of fun, and please do mention my name if you decide to sign up. ;)



I'm sorry I haven't posted any icons in so long! I've been busy lately, but I'm planning on doing a big icon post this week. :) In the meantime, there are some fun things going on elsewhere!

Round 6 of Iconfest just began! What is Iconfest, you ask? Basically, it's a two week period where a giant prompting post is open for anyone and everyone to go and ask for icons they'd like to have made for them. You can provide images or not, and be as specific or as vague as you'd like as well! People will come around and fill your prompts for you, and it's tons of fun! There's no limit to the amount of prompts you can make, so have at it! You don't have to make prompts to fill prompts, and you don't have to fill prompts to make them so don't be shy! :) Of course, it's a lot of fun doing both, so hopefully you will come over and join in the fun! Round 6's prompt post can be found here, so if you're still not too sure about it you can go take a look and see what it's all about. I hope to see you all there! :)

landofart is a 'land comm' created solely for graphic artists. It doesn't matter if you only make icons, or only picspams, wallpapers, whatever! There are challenges for all types of artists! The competition is made up of 4 teams; Team Gothic, Team Pop Art, Team Renaissance & Team Steampunk. These names are just for the sake of having teams and do NOT reflect the type of graphics you have to make! Plus, you can do any kind of graphics here (celebs, stock, fandom, etc) as long as it fits the challenge. JOIN TODAY!

If you've never joined a land comm before (this is my first one!) the concept is pretty simple! There are 4 teams, and each team competes against each other in various challenges over a period of several months earning points to see which team will be #1. Some land comms are focused on fandoms, but this one is just a general graphic arts land comm. The challenges are all pretty creative and entertaining- and surprisingly enough, a bunch of them have nothing to do with making graphics at all! (Like internet scavenger hunts, bingo, jigsaw puzzles or gifspam parties.) If you're worried about not being skilled enough to join, don't be! There's no pressure to be a super talented graphic artist (which I was worried about) and it's pretty laid back. You don't have to enter all of the challenges either, so you can sign up anytime and jump on in! If you're considering joining, I'm on Team Renaissance, and I'd love it if you'd mention my name when you sign up. :)

Old Icons 2

Going through my folders I found another small batch of old icons from the 2005~2008 time period so I thought I'd post them too for posterity. :)

Tutorial 001 [repost]

Okay, so I can't promise that this tutorial will be very useful to anyone, as we all use different programs to make graphics and we all have different font packs installed, textures available to us for use, etc. But you might find it interesting to see how I do things. :) (And I would like to apologize in advance for being so wordy, I can't help it. By the time I'm done I just know this is going to end up becoming a giant wall of text. XD)

Today's icon tutorial is all about replacing background images!

Especially in the last two or three months, this is something I've been doing a lot. (And I used the exact same technique on all of them, so for the most part a tutorial of one of them will basically show you how they all came about, more or less.)

We're going to go from this to this:


Come see an (un)professional at work!Collapse )


004 [repost]

All of these icons were made for round 2 of lemonpunch's iconfest. I really have no idea what half of these things are that I made icons of, at the beginning of the fest my only factor in picking which requests to fill was 'is the provided image interesting/pretty?' and at the end I was just trying to fill as many requests that had one fill or less. :)
