Long time no see, eh?

Well, you know how it goes. Work. School. Unfun things. Blech.

This is a batch of icons that have been accumulating during the previous school year. A lot of it is just experimental stuff: coloring, cropping, that kind of thing. Others were created using tutorials by other graphics artists in an effort to learn new techniques.

Some I am ridiculously proud of. Others not so much. But I thought I'd share them all. No sense letting it all go to waste, yeah?

85 Icons:
(06) Scarlet Johansson
(06) Keira Knightley
(23) Jonathan Rhys Meyers
(08) Assorted JRM Pairings

[Toni Collette, Minnie Driver, Todd Haynes (2), Boyd Holbrook (manip), Scarlet Johansson, Keira Knightley (manip), ChaCha Seigne]
(05) ChaCha Seigne
(05) Michael Stipe
(05) Miscellaneous Celebs

[Toni Collette, Boyd Holbrook (2), Rufus Wainwright, Kate Winslet]
(14) Miscellaneous

  • Credit is required. (ophelias_lament. Icon keywords or userinfo.)
  • Comments are greatly appreciated.
  • Enjoy! (That's the most important part.)

    These icons and graphics may be used at non-Livejournal sites (Message Boards, Greatest Journal, etc.) However! This does not excuse you from crediting!
    I've had some troubles recently with message boarders and GJ users claiming my graphics as their own. So while I hate to be so hard-nosed about it, if you use any of these graphics at a non-Livejournal site, a link back to this icon journal must be accessible in your userinfo, member profile, etc. This rule applies to all past icon/graphic updates as well. Thanks for your cooperation.

    *Also. I'm looking to beef up my tutorial repetoire. If you'd like to see a tutorial for a certain icon or tutorial, let me know and I'll do my best to recreate it.

    Ophelia's Icons - Icon Tutorial #1 [Aug. 8th, 2005|07:53 pm]

    [Current Music |[r.e.m.] drive]

    My first go at writing an icon tutorial.

    Simply because...I was beyond bored this afternoon.

    This is basically a tutorial for a style I'm quite fond of. I like it because its fairly simple to make and almost always looks good no matter what picture you use.

    We'll be going from Image hosted by Photobucket.com to Image hosted by Photobucket.com :

    Programs Used: Adobe Photoshop 7
    Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate
    Image Heavy?: Yes

    Advance Warning: I have a sort of round-a-bout way of making icons. I go back and forth and make snap decisions in the midst of a phase...so my apologies if this is evident in my tutorial.

    Part I - Colorized BaseCollapse )
    Part II - Icon BackgroundCollapse )

    Show me your icons! I'd love to see what you get!

    Like I said...this is my first icon tutorial. If you have any troubles following this one, tips for future tutorials, suggestions or shortcuts for icon-making, please feel free to comment.

    So. Here's what went down.

    Girl buys laptop. Girl falls in love with laptop. Girl teaches herself to make graphics on laptop...

    Laptop dies.

    Girl is without computer for the entire summer - a summer intended to build a website and make graphics like woah. Girl is sad. Girl comforts herself by flying to L.A. to attend a certain Late Late Show taping with certain awesome friends of hers.

    First week of July, Girl hijacks sister's computer (which happens to be void of any PS7 brushes, textures, gradients, or stock images. *gasp*) and makes it her mission to finish the website and make some new icons and desktops.

    Mission accomplished. Sure my eyes might be bloodshot and I may smell a little funny...

    Below the cut you'll find some Keira Knightley. A little Estella Warren and Kate Winslet. Some staircases and some Phantom of the Opera/Gormenghast icons. I even tried my hand at making some desktops.

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers icons? Well...guess you'll have to just click and see. ;)


    Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com Image hosted by Photobucket.com

    + 44 Icons
    + 4 Desktops

    I Have a Thing for Fours...Collapse )

    So I'm moving over the next couple of weeks...not sure about the status of my internet connection, but hopefully I should be getting my new computer within that time.

    But go ahead and check out the new website if you fancy... Its a little "amateurish" but keep in mind...I basically taught myself how HTML and CSS (with the help of some good friends and a tutorial or two.) Hopefully in time I can design a really nice layout.

    This will do until then. Version 1.0 if you will.

    (Many many thanks again to my glam sister of doom, heraliceeyes for hosting me. *dusts you in glitter*)

    Just a quick update...no graphics. *sad face*

    My laptop with Photoshop and all of my work is...down. And will hopefully be up and running within a week or two. Since this is a forced hiatus of sorts, I thought I'd try and finish up work on my website.

    I hope to open All That Glitters Graphics early this summer. Muchos thanks to heraliceeyes for providing me with the webspace over at Late-December.net

    But I'd like to know what you'd like to see there. So far I plan on featuring:

  • Icons/Avatars
  • Wallpapers/Desktops
  • Banners/Headers
  • Mood Themes

    I'll seriously consider any suggestions you guys have. So until then, take care!

    ...more on the way very soon. My brain fizzled in the middle of my banner/icon set this afternoon.

    Promotional Banners w/ CodesCollapse )

    + Lyrics:
    01: Love Me Tender - Elvis Presley
    02: Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley
    + Yeah...some of them have these phrases like "The King" and "Elvis Lives" that make sound like one of those freaks that hang out at Graceland for an entire summer...but what can I say? I *heart* Elvis!

    Comment, Credit, and Enjoy!

    True to form, I've churned out a handfull of Jonny icons in the wee hours of the morning.

    Comment, Credit, Enjoy!
    Ok. Yes. I was a proud mama with this bunch and cross-posted tonnes! So if your Flist was spammed...I do apologize. *turns and faces corner*

    I have some Keira Knightley, Courtney Love, Jared Leto, and Rufus Wainwright icons in the works. I'm hanging onto them until I have a bigger selection to post...so keep an eye out for those.

    Note About Colorbars:
    + "is love" text can be changed. Won't bother me.
    + Credit is nice but not necessary,(as I just do these for fun) however...
    + You may not claim them as your own. (Even if you alter text.)
    + This entry will be updated as new colorbars are created.
    + I *heart* colorbars. They're fun & easy to make. You are welcome to request one at any time.
    + If a text box is not present, then the CB is custom-made & only posted as an example of a style.
    Please ask me via comments if you are interested in using a custom Colorbar.
    (I'd be happy to customize it for you for your use if time allows.

    Yes...behold the miracle of a caffeine induced energy spurt! LJ was being deprived of Jonneh versions of the infamous "Bitch, Please" set. Problem solved.

    Ok...so I snuck an old one in. *sporks*

    heraliceeyes requested some icons of Jonneh's most recent picture.

    I've managed a few...and will probably have more eventually.

    01: 02: 03: 04:

    Yup. Listening to Rufus and R.E.M.

    Also, from one of my absolute fave pictures:

    01: 02:

    (FYI: Every icon is 100X100...but they might look smaller if you're looking at them against a white background because they have a five-pixel white border...which is an effect I've been rather obsessed with lately.)

    No icons... [Feb. 12th, 2005|12:02 am]

    [Current Mood |tiredtired]
    [Current Music |watching Disappearance of Finbar]

    Not an icon update. My apologies.

    Let's call it an icon status update:

    + The major news: a deadline for one of my papers has been moved up...thus forcing me to cram. It won't be a terribly long wait for new icons, but it could be as much as a week or so. Just wanted to give a heads-up.

    + The Phantom/Gormenghast series is nearing completion. I'm hesitant to name another set at this point because of the school/work sitch...but I guaran-damn-tee you there will be Elvis icons in the very near future! :)

    + I'm very proud to call Ophelia's Icons' newest affiliate!

    This is my absolute favorite JRM website and I have a tremendous amount of admiration for it. Much love and big thanks to the site's webmistresses frozenwithin and minyafalas!

    *eyes dart back and forth*

    Ok. So maybe I have a few new icons up my sleeve! ;)
