I tried some new stuff with these icons so a few of them look different to the icons I normally make. It's all fun & games when you try out new techniques, photoshop is a playground!

ESB: part 2, P&P: part 2 [February 3, 2006 | 6:48 pm]

I've now finished making icons for the first two-thirds of the Empire Strikes Back however to make icons for the entire movie of Pride and Prejudice is taking longer than expected, I don't think I am even half-way. In consideration of borders, it seemed like most people preferred without so I'm leaving it that way. And I'm unhappy with some sharpening on these icons so it made them look worse, sorry about that. Please enjoy these and there will be more soon!

This is what too much time on your hands does to you...more icons. STOP ME STOP! in the words of iharthdarth, it is 'ridonkulous', anyway i'm venturing outside tomorrow for the first time this week (hehehe, not really), so beachicons will slow down until next week, you know, one just gets so tempted by pretty stock images!

oh my god i wrote a tutorial. [January 25, 2006 | 9:28 am]

Basically I decided to write a tutorial because there have been a few people asking me about how I get specific colouring on my icons. To be honest, I feel so honoured that those of you that ask want to know this stuff because it makes me feel special about the icons that I make. So below is a short tutorial (there are others similar around that I have seen, but you know, i want to join in too and make my own). I have made this icon using Photoshop Elements 4.0 thus there is a possibility that some stuff that I do will be slightly different with the versions you are using.

Tutorial shows you how to get from:

[x] please comment if you like the tutorial! and please do not hotlink any of this stuff.

I promise that I'll leave everyone alone from new icons after this for a few days, I was just so excited about my new photoshop elements and I loved trying new things. I think that i've settled down now - i hope. It seems like everyone is doing The 23rd Psalm and The Hunting Party together with their icons at the moment. Probably because Lost has split into two groups of jack, kate, sawyer and locke & in the other claire, charlie and eko. And, if anybody know where i can find a picture of Jin with his sexy hat, can you please tell me!

ESB: part 1. P&P: part 1. [January 23, 2006 | 7:41 am]

[ mood | complacent ]

YAY! I finally started what i always wanted to do: make icons of The Empire Strikes Back and Pride and Prejudice. I want to iconise all of both of these movies so this is why I have only iconed the beginning of both of these films in this first post. For The Empire Strikes Back there are some which have been left blank without text because i couldn't think of anything to write on them. For Pride and Prejudice the icons have all been left minimal because i like it that way (in the future i plan to make some with text, i have some ideas). Unfortunately there are no borders on these icons so i hope nobody minds, just think of them with magical white borders!
