Challenge #1 -- People's Choice

icontest icons from the last week

I've been entering contests like crazy! Finally got the results for some.

and won 1st and 2nd place, respectively, at btvs_epicontest in challenge #70 "Something Blue". Yay!

Non-winning icons:


btvs_epicontest challenge #70 "Something Blue"


art_stills challenge #32 "James Tissot"


travel_icontest challenge #151 "Bavaria, Germany"

I am still waiting on a TON of contests to be judged. Also need to get cracking on my 100 icons for icons100.
I've decided to do my first ever 100-icon challenge at icons100! The last week or so, I've been experimenting with masks and textures and colour and doing tutorial after tutorial. Aside from regular iconing and icontests, I think this challenge will really help me become better at making icons. I chose to do Season 4 of Buffy because it has so many amazing moments that will be fun to icon and I'm on a Buffy kick right now.

Credit for the screencaps goes to the awesome Screencap Paradise. All other resources used can be found in my resource list (linked in the sidebar).

68 Dirty Dancing icons

These were a response to severe emotional distress earlier in the week. I'm hoping to get back in the swing of things with making icons again after a long hiatus of ignoring photoshop *g*

57 Fruit Icons

First icon post! I had a couple of hours to myself last night, so what did I do? Sift through several stock photo websites, save lots of pictures of fruit, then make icons. xD The stock sites I use are linked on my resources page (:

I am working on a few different sets right now of Harry Potter, Pirates, and Buffy. Hopefully some of those will be up soon, I just have to find time between work and everything else to get them done.

iContest Awards

Here are all of the lovely awards I've won for various icontests, arranged alphabetically by contest. Some communities I'm no longer in/don't update anymore. For all of my older contest icons/awards, click here.

Portfolio Post

Since there isn't much here yet, I figured why not post some of the graphics I've made over the years that I'm most proud of? Consider it a portfolio of sorts. None of the following images, unless specifically mentioned, are available for use. They are almost all personal images created for myself or someone else. Thanks (:


My first attempt at decent animation. There's a slight pause, but it loops pretty well.

1 Wallpaper (V For Vendetta)

I'm finally getting back to graphics after a really long hiatus. Hopefully, this will be the start of many, many updates in this journal. I saved a ton of screencaps from various movies and tv shows the other night and plan on making lots of icons in the abundance of spare time I have.

I am also trying my hand at wallpapers. It's something I haven't ever really done before because they're so large and intimidating, but I think this one came out well and it makes me wanna do more.

Click on the link for the size you want; wallpaper will open in a separate window. Plz to be not redistributing this, but feel free to use it on your desktop xD

Resources // Credits

These are the sources for the brushes, textures, screencaps, etc. that I use when making graphics. I try to make sure I get everyone up here but sometimes I have a brain fart and download something without making note of who it's from. If you'd like yourself here, just comment and let me know! Last update: 7 November 2008

NOTE: I recently reformatted my computer and while my resources folder itself was saved, the notepad file I keep track of links/usernames in was not. Therefore, I am missing credit to a whole slew of textures and brushes on here... so please do forgive me if you see that I've used something of yours and you aren't credited here. Just let me know!
