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...)

I couldn't find the exact texture I used but I have a cap for you.

Photobucket

I've originally been setting the cap to alpha #000000 and then overlaying it on to the texture that way. Like this - Photobucket but it's a little too light for me, if you know what I mean.

Re: /threadjack
So are you trying to erase the background for that icon, or just make the texture more rich? Do you also have any texture that is semi similar I could use?

Re: /threadjack
Well originally I was trying to make the texture stronger but it tends to make (in this example) Lois more orange. I found the texture I used > Photobucket

But I want to know how you'd put Lois on to a texture like this > Photobucket

Re: /threadjack
Okay! I'll give that a go asap. Who should I credit for the textures?

WHOOPS!
ETA: Ignore that - I discovered that the pic linked to a bigger version... DUH.

Do you know what episode that cap is from? I could probably make a better icon from a larger cap - I can find one if I know the episode number/name.
