It's really been a while since I posted anything here... one reason is the exam period I went through, and the other that I (surprisingly) ran out of anime/manga fandoms. I had used most images of my fave series without getting dragged into new fandoms. :/

I still enjoy making icons, though, so if you have any suggestions for current series, feel free to drop me a comment! You can also spam me with pretty images and I'll look into them.
Oh, and fyi: the comic icons are sorted by the series the scans are from, not the characters they depict (it was easier this way).


Icons:
Anime/Manga
[08] After School Nightmare
[09] Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler
[22] D.Gray-man
[05] Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn
[13] Pandora Hearts

DC Comics
[05] Adventure Comics (Superboy, Red Robin, var.)
[07] Batman and Robin
[02] Batgirl
[03] Nightwing
[20] Red Robin (Red Robin, Superboy, Batgirl, Robin)
[05] Supergirl
[02] Teen Titans (Kid Flash, Robin, Starfire)
[05] Fanart (Nightwing, Robin)

Disney
[10] Tarzan

Cats & Stocks
[19] Cats
[07] Stocks

Total:[142]

I just know there's something bigger out there.Collapse )

Hey guys, it's been so long since the last icon batch, right? I was busy hiding from RL issues and had to write a lot of reports and papers for university, thus my motivation and inspiration kinda crashed. But now I'm back, celebrating it with a new layout (-> soleil_icons ) and profile, all Bleach-themed this time. ♥
And I know I'm waaay behind with tutorials. D: I thought of closing this post for tutorial requests, but couldn't bring myself to it. So if you really, really want to request a tut you can do so, but be aware that I won't have the chance to fulfill it any time soon.

However, the new batch is here with older/everlasting fandoms since I didn't have the time to look into the anime spring season yet. I also rediscovered my love for comic books, so have some icons of the awesomeness that Teen Titans: Year One is along with a few mixed ones.
No profile layouts, but header and *gasp* a wallpaper. <3


Icons:
[11] Bleach
[09] Various
--> [08] X1999
--> [01] Chobits
[35] Teen Titans: Year One
[09] Various
--> [02] Starfire
--> [01] Supergirl
--> [05] Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark)
--> [01] Flash (Bart Allen)
[08] Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles
Total: [72]


Other Stuff:
[01] Bleach wallpaper
[01] Kid Flash (Wally West) header
[01] Supernatural header

Sometimes I feel nervous when I see an open door.Collapse )

No entry since March, I'm really sorry, guys. RL trouble hunted me and came together with a lack of inspiration, but now I'm back. :D

After much delay (first my server died and then my computer) FINALLY the new icon batch with the long-promised requests from last time.
But *gasp*!





Just when I finshed everything from the 'Thank you for 70+ watchers'- request round you are over 120 already! Really guys, you are amazing... thank you for all your support and nice comments, they never fail to fill up my energy level. ♥
So I have three things to celebrate with you~
First, as you can see with the banner, I picked up the category TV Show: additionally to my anime&manga icons I'll also post tv stuff from now on. Due to personal fandom I'm concentrating on Supernatural, but I'm also open for suggestions. (See also the new layout --> soleil_icons and profile, all Supernatural-themed.)
Second, layout stuff will appear on a regular basis with (I think) every icon post from now on.
And third, another 'special' request round which I call "1/2 requests" for certain reasons:


Infos on requestingCollapse )

Today's icon batch is divided into two areas: anime/manga and Supernatural. The requests from last time are in a seperate post HERE (otherwise there'd be too many huge images/profile layouts here). Please leave me a comment there when you picked up your stuff.
As for the Supernatural icons: I really went wild with the coloring and tried different stuff, so it'd be awesome if you could give me some feedback which coloring style you prefer.
The headers are alternates of my community profile layout... you see that I sometimes have a hard time deciding on results, which is to your advantage now. XD
I didn't feel like working with text this time, but if you have a cool idea and want to see a certain text on a certain icon, just ask and I'll add it.
And last but not least, of course tutorial requests are open (and let me know if something doesn't work).

Notes:
* Supernatural icon #13 was inspired by the movie The Name of the Rose... I almost fell from my sofa when a monk appeared and said his name's Casper of Winchester. xD



Anime/Manga:
[30] Various
--> [05] Kuroshitsuji
--> [09] Code Geass
--> [03] Loveless
--> [09] Shinshi Doumei Cross
--> [04] Vampire Knight

Profile layouts:
[01] Loveless
[01] Kuroshitsuji

Requests: various icons, headers and profile layouts are over here

[05] Header

[01] Jensen Ackles profile layout
[02] Jared Padalecki profile layouts

Hiatus is over, I'm BACK!! :D Right after finishing this new tutorial I'll upload my new icon batch, so expect to be a bit spammed tonight. ♥

How to go from to with Photoshop. Selective Coloring can be skipped, so it should be translatable.


I have found the safest place to keep all our old mistakes.Collapse )

My PC is dying... I can't really blame him since he's 6.5 years old.
So, hiatus until I get my shiny new PC, which is hopefully next week.
See you, and wish me luck that everything goes without problems.
