subject: Another Update

I swear I haven't forgotten about this community; I've just been super busy. I'm currently in my third semester of medical school, and that really doesn't leave a lot of time for anything else. I promise I'm going to get around to making some icons soon, though, so please bear with me. I'm really wanting to make some icons from the comic Runaways, even if no one uses them but me LOL. Also, I still have the Brand New project on my plate, so that will be continuing for sure. As always, if you have any specific requests, especially musical artists, certain songs, or comics you'd like iconed, feel free to let me know. Thanks for sticking around, guys! :)

subject: 13 Brand New "Me vs. Madonna vs. Elvis" Icons

Ok, here are the "Me vs. Madonna vs. Elvis" icons I've been promising, oh, FOREVER haha. As per my last post, I tried out a new style on some of them, so it's a mixed batch-- some of my normal stock/text icons, and some with just textures and text. PLEASE comment with what you think, so I can figure out where to go with my future Brand New icons, as I'll be making more soon :) "Mixtape" should be up next.

subject: Little Poll

I know a decent number of you have recently joined looking for my Brand New lyric icons. I've had a really busy summer, but starting now I'm going to have a lot of free time to work on them, so I'd love your opinions. Should I keep up with the same style I've been doing... stock images + decorative lyrics? Or would you guys like me to do some decorative text on pretty textures, etc. (but no stock images) type of things? I'm just trying to get some inspiration, because to be honest, my inspiration for my old style of icon has waned somewhat, but if there is still a big demand for me to finish the project in that same type, I'll definitely soldier on. Also, get in any specific Brand New song requests (as long as I haven't already done it), because otherwise I'm continuing in alphabetic order.

Thanks so much for the input!!! You guys are awesome!

subject: 24 "Fables" Icons

Since I really enjoyed making those Preacher icons, I was looking forward to doing more comic-related stuff... so when frieliegh  asked if I would consider doing Fables icons, I felt up to it, even though I had never read the series. (I know, I should have a long time ago. I mean, I heart Vertigo.) So, I started reading and now I'm totally hooked. That made making these icons (from the first 5 issues) even more fun. Please let me know what you think!

subject: 17 "Preacher" Icons

I honestly don't know if anyone in this community has any interest in comics, but I love them, so I decided to make some icons from a great comic, Preacher, by my favorite comics writer, Garth Ennis. I know I've been branching out from my usual lyrics icons, but I've had a lot of fun trying new things, so please forgive me. I haven't forgotten about my Brand New icons, and I'm actually planning on getting some of those done this week. Anyway, there are 17 icons here, and if you would like any of the bases, just let me know. I cropped them all myself. I'd love to know what you think!

subject: Award!

After being away for so long, I decided to enter an icon contest at oicontests, and I won an award for Best Text! Here is my pretty banner:

And here are the two icons I made (including the one that won an award), just in case you wanted to take either of them. I made both in a really, really big rush because I just happened to see that the contest was ending in like 15 minutes.

subject: Something a Little Different...

For the first time ever, I decided to work on non-lyric icons. I randomly picked David Beckham because I found some good DB bases from stunningangel  . I don't know if I should just stick to lyric/stock icons, or if I should sometimes do celeb icons as well... so feedback would be really really appreciated! Go a little easy on me, please, because this is my first time working with this style.


Comments will make me very happy!
Credit would be appreciated.
I'll work on a Resources post soon, I promise!

subject: 30 Requested Radio Bases

Sorry for doing two bases posts in a row, but I filled a request at basicbases for radio bases. There are only 30 this time, but maybe you can find something you like :) Next post will be "Me vs. Madonna vs. Elvis," I swear.

subject: 50 Random & Puddles Bases

Here are the bases I promised earlier :) These are mostly random stock images, but there is a little batch of rain/puddle bases, because I was trying to make the Saves the Day icons from my last post.


-PLEASE comment with what you're taking.
^This is the only rule I actually care about, as it helps me make better icons/bases.
-Obviously, since these are bases, feel free to customize to your heart's content.
-Credit is optional but greatly appreciated, especially if you use them plain.

subject: 11 Brand New "Magazines" Icons

Here is my next batch of Brand New icons, 11 from the song "Magazines." To be honest, I am not very pleased with the way most of these turned out. Oh well, I guess you can't win them all. That just means I'll have to do the next song soon... and it's "Me vs. Madonna vs. Elvis," so I'm excited! I'm also planning another bases post either later tonight or tomorrow. Anyway, I'd really love it if you'd comment with what you're taking, especially since I feel so blah about these.

Also, since this batch kinda bums me out, I'm putting up 2 Saves the Day icons that I originally made for myself from "Jessie & My Whetstone." I made them one night last week when I realized I couldn't sleep until I had an icon with my favorite Saves the Day lyric from my favorite Saves the Day song LOL. I made two, and I can't really decide which one I like, so let me know what you think, and feel free to snag them!
