Icon request

Hey Darlin, I am on a mission for a new icon. I thought you could possibly do it for me. I trust you with it.

The icon itself I want to have to text, and to be colorful. Similar to the icon I am using if that helps at all. I only want it of the pic in the middle. Thanks a whole lot.

Pop-Grunge Texture Tutorial (PS CS2) New!
by sinecure (sinecure)
at April 16th, 2007 (11:21 pm)

I feel: accomplished
listening to: Cherry Blossom Girl - Air

Recently, as I was looking at post after post of tutorials that read: 'Get this coloring!' or 'use this brush, apply this texture, use this gradient', I wondered where tutorials on how to actually DO something went. So, I'm writing one. This is on how to achieve a pop/grunge style texture. It's a header-sized pop/grunge texture I made a few months ago. It's long. And I'll be using a lot of visual aides, so, be warned.

Full speed ahead, Captain!Collapse )

Tutorials, Requests, Resources! Post away!

I feel: calm

I'm 'opening' the community again! Whoo. This is now a site to post TUTORIALS, art REQUESTS, and art RESOURCES.

This is a community to cater to the whims of others whether it be through posting tutorials, icon/graphic requests, or your own resources, such as brushes, textures, or gradients.


Community members are free to:

- post requests for icons, Friends Only banners, headers, wallpapers, or other graphics.

- post tutorials, or link members to tutorials you find interesting. (with author's permission!)

- post original brushes, gradients, textures, or image packs.


- place previews over 300x300 under a cut. Think of your fellow dial-up users.

- be nice when requesting/fulfilling a request. Keep everything civil. Be prompt. Don't say you'll make an icon and come back 3 weeks later.

- tell us what program you're using in the subject line for tutorials.

- keep community pimping to once per person per week.


- TyPe lIKe THis! It's annoying and difficult to read. No netspeak either. (ie: duz ne1 no how to make iconz?! plz help!) Grammar and spelling are becoming lost arts... don't help kill them.

- flame or fight... they're very simple ways to get your butt banned. Please don't do it. This is not a community to air grievances.

- post icons. Reply to the original post when posting requested icons. This is not an icon-sharing community. It's for tutorials, resources, and requests.

- post a hundred tutorials on how to get a certain coloring.

- delete or strike through your posts.

- post numerous posts. One post per person, per day.

More to come... and are subject to change at any time.

Please! Always give credit to the icon maker in keywords unless otherwise stated. Thank you.

Let's get this community going again.

Moving Lights tutorial (PS, AS3)
by sinecure (sinecure)
at April 14th, 2007 (09:27 pm)

I feel: busy

As requested, I wrote a tutorial for lights moving over your icon subject, as in the icon above. I'm not going through the whole 'how to make an icon' thing. I'll trust that you know how to do that, and if you don't, refer to the thousands of tutorials that will help you, including some of my own, found in my memories.

PS and Animation Shop 3 tutorial on lights moving across an iconCollapse )

This community is under construction. I'm reworking it; hopefully into a better, more, ya know, ALIVE community.

This isn't a place to post your icons. Please refrain from doing so, thank you. :)

Hey! I'm new and was just wondering if a request could be done? I'm not good at making my own icons. I wanted a Smallville one, of any sort really. Maybe something with Clark and Lex sayind "Friends Forever?"

I'm taking requests.

I'd like it if you gave me an image to work with OR you can just ask me upfront.
