My stupid laptop spent the better part of July in a repair center enjoying the replacement of many primary components, so naturally, requests weren't addressed in the timely manner I would've preferred to handle them. HOWEVER, I'm getting caught up promptly, so hooray! Also my laptop is in prime working order, so I won't have to suffer without Photoshop to occupy my time.

I'm getting into Persona thanks to my roommate :> Hopefully it'll incline me to icon things that aren't Legend of Zelda or Eternal Sonata, lmao

Not a bad batch this time around. I experimented with textures again, which yielded better results than the last over 9000 times I've tried. I think the MTNN ones came out the best. This batch was kinda random for reasons unknown, but I still need to move away from my LOZ/ES trend.

Nothing much special to say about this post. :|a The Legend of Zelda section is bogged down with icons I made for roleplaying, so they're only passable in quality. I'm extremely happy with the Melee icons, though. I definitely need to make some more of those. Three more days to Spirit Tracks! IT LOOKS SO CUTE!

Also, MY REQUESTS ARE DONE! 8]b They'll be posted shortly, so hang tight if you requested something.

omgggggg so excited for Spirit Tracks! I'll try really really hard to not icon it much until the game is out, but afjkdls so awesome! :3

fffff not terribly happy with most of this batch, but I'm sick of staring at it and wishing it would get better. I gave Link some more love, for once. There was some experimentation with text this batch; jury's still out on my results. :|a

Requests'll be in the next post. ;;

Wooo, here's Part Two! This is where I really got into making coloring variations, testing them on tons of Legend of Zelda pics. As I was working, I realized that I almost never icon Link. ;A; So I had to remedy that. A lot.

And then there's the Vesperia section. Umi and I both squee about pairings in this game, but her OTP is Flynn/Estelle while mine is Yuri/Estelle. (But we've agreed that both pairings are totally awesome.) I tried to icon some Flynn/Estelle for her, though there isn't much art. (Srsly, if someone has Flynn/Estelle art, we want it :'[.)

I never want to make a batch this big again /sob.

The ever so wonderful [livejournal.com profile] aoiryuu recently gave me a shiny new toy-- Photoshop CS. :> She even taught me her fantastic coloring technique, which I have been practicing a ton with and now love like no other. As part of my practice (and a very brief roleplaying stint), I made colored icons from a lovely little shoujo-ai manga called "Snowflakes fluttering down through the clear sky." It's a fluffy one-shot, which you can read on mangafox (and should, because it's amazing). I also uploaded it, so you can download it here.

I also toyed around with selective coloring, but haven't put too much effort into it. Still, I like the results I'm getting. :] There'll probably be more of that and less coloring in the next batch. Holy hell, I am so sick of coloring manga now. :|

Good God, this is a huge icon post!:OO And most of these are from the last few days too. ffffffffff, I'm turning into an icon whore. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE, I've learned to color manga. 8DDDDDb I am damn happy with these icons. I've been experimenting with manga coloring for a long time (though I don't always post the results) and I've finally developed a style I like. And it isn't even one that I learned from tutorials or tips from friends. :> I feel so accomplished.

SO! Lots and lots of Kingdom Hearts and Legend of Zelda. I had lots of fun coloring these and I'm sure I'll go back to coloring more once I'm done with this icon post.

Hope you guys like them! \o/

Hooray! It's finally time for another icon post! 8Db This post involves an excessive amount of Legend of Zelda to make up for there not being enough in the last post. I tried to make Midna bases to be used for roleplay (because I fucking love Midna), but some of them came out looking like shit. :[ Needs less sharpen next time. Also in this post-- textures, and how Jen abuses them. 8Db Out of context screencaps were also a great joy in this batch.

Coming next batch!-- COLORING! Maybe. idk. But [livejournal.com profile] notmoe taught me a fantastic coloring technique and I have been abusing it for days now. :3
