Jan-Feb Icons

After a rousing round of CAPSLOCK!SQUEE with sean_montgomery, I decided to post my 2009 icon progress. I've been able to learn a lot this month using textures, animation and now brushes. I want to share!

These are roughly in order of creation (all made with GIMP), up to today:

1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12
13 14 15 16
17 18 19 20
21


These are freely gankable, with credit, if you would actually want one! (Oops, #16 was slightly too big, so I fixed it, but it's a little pixelated. Oh well...)

What tutorial did you use #5, #11 & #12? I'm really interested in making icons like that. :D

Snagging #17. Cause that's just awesome.

Yay! I made #17 for someeone at the sheldon_penny comm, and it's awesome someone else wants it!

I didn't use a tutorial on that. What I did was carefully erase all the background except for the person's body, then added a texture overtop. Then I changed the opacity to where I could see the person underneath it and carefully erased all the texture over the person.

If that didn't make sense, I can try to make a tutorial myself! That might be fun. :)

These are awesome, well done. Making icons is addictive. :D

It is! I SO need to stop letting it interfere with my life, though. :D

Thank you! I think you're right -- I'm totally sucked in now... And #18 just BEGGED to be iconned. :)

Thank you! I'm excited about the sharpness of that one - my icons have mostly been too blurry before. :)

Thank you! I'm having a lot of fun, anyway. :)

Thank you! #18 just begged to be made. :D

Oooh, snagging #19! I tried SO HARD to icon that panel, you have no idea and it was all a failure. :(
htbthomas
Feb. 9th, 2009 08:02 pm (UTC)
Yay! All of these were made to fill a need I had, as well as to experiment, so it tickles me that someone else can use them, too. :)

Excellent work, Mom!

But you know it's only a matter of time before Lois starts bugging you about potential icons you could make for her... ;)
htbthomas
Feb. 9th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
Well I don't do manips, so... I'm pretty limited in what she can ask! :D

But hey, I've made some of those on request, so I probably wouldn't mind. :)

Anyhoo, my offer of newbie help is totally open whenever. GIMP is no Photoshop, but it's freeeeeeeeeeeeee.
