New Style

A new style, and I don't know whether I like this particular icon better as darker or a tiny bit lighter:

darker... lighter...

And I'm still trying to figure out what exactly it is about what I did to this that makes it feel suggestive of something either pre- or post- coital...

(Tutorial to come later.)

Icon Tutorial #2

Icon Tutorial: Layers of Color

I did this following icon with PhotoFiltre, but it should work well for Gimp too (though, I'm not sure I know the commands for Gimp).

Here is the finished product:

Icon Tutorial #1

Icon Tutorial: Layers of Gradual Transparency

Your Requests Here... (and guidelines)

I will take your requests here...

Now, that said, I do have a few guidelines for the requests...

I DO NOT take requests for icons or banners of the following:

Please don't ask for anything under this cut...Collapse )

Other Guidelines:

  • Also, keep in mind that I can get very busy and might not be able to fill your request very quickly.

  • I cannot do layouts... yet. Please don't ask me for them.

  • I will do lyrical brushes upon request--- but nothing racist, misogynistic, homophobic, etc...

  • Keep checking back to this post... my guidelines for request are subject to change...

Resource Post

Welcome to the graphics resource journal that's tied to the person known as both sampaguita_blue & sprkysage.

I created this journal/community not for the regular posting of icons so much as for banners, tutorials, brushes, and textures. There will occasionally be icon posts, but I mostly post all of them here.

So, for my very first post, I decided that I should credit the resources that I use on a regular basis.

The graphics programs that I use are:

  • Microsoft Picture It & Digital Image: I don't know how much the program costs to download, it came with the computer when I purchased it.

  • Gimp: GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program. It is a freely distributed piece of software for such tasks as photo retouching,image composition and image authoring. It works on many operating systems, in many languages.

  • PhotoFiltre: PhotoFiltre is a complete image retouching program. It allows you to do simple or advanced adjustments to an image and apply a vast range of filters on it. It is simple and intuitive to use, and has an easy learning curve. The toolbar, giving you access to the standard filters with just a few clicks, gives PhotoFiltre a robust look. It is also free for download.

The images that I use for my graphics are taken from several places:

For graphics help-- brushes, textures, etc...:
