I've been wanting to do over my journal for aages. And I've been wanting to incorporate her Dear Diary lyrics into a header, using the ballerina image from her I'm Not Dead photoshoot. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it online. So I had to make do. I also made a friends only banner to match. Here's what I got:

Lost In Shadows Valentines Day Competition...  
02:14pm 05/02/2009
 
 
sideofabullet
I decided to enter a competition on lost_in_shadows, the details of which are in this post. I guess I decided to enter more for the challenge than for the prize itself. This is my first proper graphic since having Photoshop, which means I'm still very much learning the ropes. It resulted in a lot of yelling at the inanimate object that is my computer, things like, "Oh hai crop tool, WHY AREN'T YOU CROPPING!" Yep. Psycho.

I gave all the vampires red eyes simply because when I used to RP my character, Selene Delaros, on another site pre-LiS I gave her scarlet eyes, hence the icon I use on the LiS community. It's not because I stereotype vampires and think they all have red eyes, BECAUSE THE DON'T. Yep, Ricean Vampires luvvah here.

Ahem.

So, here's my first, and perhaps last, submission:

Carlton Football Club Mood Icons...  
11:56pm 02/12/2008
 
 
sideofabullet
I can't even remember how many moons ago it was that I decided I wanted to make a mood theme for the Carlton community I moderate, carltonbluesfc, but it has been an age between then and now. This by far is the most challenging task I have taken on yet. The icons themselves were fairly simple and systematic, but if you have never done a mood theme before then you can not possibly contemplate just how hard it is to find pictures for each and every mood. I used to think that LiveJournal didn't have enough moods when posting an entry and unable to find a mood that described mine. I will never think such a thing EVER again. It is because of this that I ask if you do use them to please credit me in your user info. It was quite the effort.

And yes, there is some bias towards certain players, but this was by no means on purpose. There is simply a vast abundance of photos of some select players.

How to use mood icons:

For paid or sponsored accounts, see the detailed account in the LJ FAQ here.

For a basic account, post the following code at the top of your entry (minus the asterisks, of course) and it will give you the appearance of a paid account:

[ <*b>mood<*/b> | <*img src="URL"> type mood here ]
[ <*b>music<*/b> | type current music here ]

A friend requested a few Grey's Anatomy Friends Only Banners. So I shall post them here in the event that someone else wants to use one, too.

Carlton Football Club Icons...

sideofabullet
Much like the MCR icons of the previous post, I haven't made Carlton icons since I discovered the magic of layer modes. So I have a new one, of players past and present, with a coach thown in the mix. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Rather literally.

This batch was relatively quicker, as I tend not to do anything fancy with AFL icons. I largely avoid text and place a heavy emphasis on the colouring. I also tend to avoid masking brushes (actually, on most icons I avoid masking brushes because I generally don't like them), but as you can see, this time it was not the case. I hadn't intended to, but I liked the effect on Hampson's icon so much I decided to make a set of them. I also thought it would stand out like a sore thumb if only one icon had a masking brush.

My Chemical Romance "Helena" Icons  
11:48pm 08/01/2008
 
 
sideofabullet
Well well, hasn't it been a while? My icon making came to a halt during Uni, so when holidays hit I started on this batch. It took a fair while given that I made these in between having the life I've been allowed to have since being on holidays. I finally finished. It was rather odd trying to get back into the swing of things. Trying to remember old techniques, like making the rain. Or trying out new things I had never attempted due to my program's utter lack of tools, like the tear on Gerard's cheek, which took me a full hour to do. Insane. These are a tad Gee heavy, and nowhere near as much Frank as I would like. Beggers can't be choosers, however, and I had to work with the caps made available. Originally, I had a rule wherein I was only going to use Helena lyrics in the icons, but those of you who know it well enough will see that did not remain the case. I included both the animated and pre-animated icons for all the .gifs, partially so there is a choice and partially because the colouring of the icons is lost behind all that rain and I wanted it seen in all it's shinyness.

Enough of that. On to the icons!

Twix icons...

This one is solely for the amusement of myself and the other half of Twix. Don't ask. No, really, don't. Clearly, these are Chuck Norris jokes, which have been Twixified. I saw some MCR-ified Chuck Norris jokes and figured the only thing cooler than MCR is Twix, hence these:

30 Seconds To Mars / Jared Leto Icons

Long time no icon post. Exams will do that to you. But now that fun is over and done with, I returned to a batch of Jared Leto icons I began many months ago. Wasn't so easy getting back into the swing of things and I found I've forgotten a fair share of techniques I used to know. That'll have to be amended.
By far my favourite thing about Jared icons is getting to work with those eyes of his. They're nothing short of brilliant and it's fun to make them even brighter and even bluer than they usually are. Enough of that. Here's the final products:

30 Seconds To Mars 'The Kill (Bury Me)' Icons

sideofabullet
I have a bad habit of losing inspiration half way through a batch. This I owe to the poor quality of the caps/bases. So, rather than continuing in this half-arsed fashion, I figured I'd post what I'd done so far. I do so very much love this clip and 30 Seconds To Mars. No doubt I will be making more at a later date.

Evanescence :: Call Me When You're Sober Icons...

Well it's been a while. I completely lost my inspiration, my motivation. Alas, my muse has returned and what better way to kick it off than a batch of Evanescence icons. As soon as I saw the Call Me When You're Sober video I knew I had to iconise it. Amy Lee is beautiful as Red Riding Hood, not to mention the yummy eye candy who plays the man-wolf. He looks exactly how I picture Louis from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. But enough rambles and more icons.
