Hello, watchers! I'm Terpy, another maintainer whose failed to introduce herself here. :D;;; To make up for my fail, I present to you a coloring and icon tutorial! Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have some icons for you all.

By request, today I shall share my secrets on how I color manga scans for icons and other graphics. These... really aren't secrets, as anything can be achieved with a lot of practice! It took me two years to get this technique down, and I still have a lot to learn.

(This is cross-posted to my journal as well!)

Image heavy tutorial is below!Collapse )

These are all of the icon requests from last month. Sorry they took so long! Truth be told one of them was on a memory stick I left everywhere but near the computer. Also, I've just started a new job so I have nowhere near as much time now to do icons so updates are going to be very, very slow. Sorry about that!
All requests are shareable. :)

Just a quick batch, mainly featuring the lovely Ayumi Hamasaki in her two latest PVs, You Were... and BALLAD. The screencaps weren't very HQ so... yeah. I worked with them as well as I could. There's some DGM in there too.

Firstly, I'd like to begin this entry by thanking every one of the watchers of this community. I've only been iconing here since August (surprisingly; the time has flown by!) and I'm very flattered that people would consider my community good enough to consider watching. ♥

Therefore, I've decided to open requests for the first time ever!

Since Christmas is all about giving and not receiving, I'm allowing anyone, watchers or not, to request as many icons as they like! I'll make sure to get as many of them done as possible by the next time I post!

Some general guidelines are:
one.) all icons will be shareable.
two.) high quality to medium quality pictures only please!
three.) I will icon any fandom you throw at me.
four.) for manga colourings and the likes, please provide colour references.
five.) I will not icon fanart for the moment. Sorry!
six.) Please provide any specific things that you would like on the icon (placement, textures, ect.)
seven.) I don't mind spoilers at all. :)

Once again, thank you so much!

Well, what can I say? My internet has been acting up for awhile so an accumulation of icons built up which is why this batch is uh... slightly larger than my previous ones. My Internet still isn't fixed so if you see any errors point them out to me, please! Images aren't loading all too well.
Since I last posted I saw P!nk live and bought tickets to see Lady GaGa live! I'm pretty excited!

Experimental icon batch is experimental. This is late, sorry! My laptop basically blew up and I lost a full batch which disheartened me and after playing around with Photoshop for a little I decided I may as well get back with iconing!

Guess who finally got their hands on photoshop? Yep, me!
To 'celebrate' as of sorts I thought I'd mess around with it for a little bit. It's a little surprising how fast it is and... a ha ha selective colouring is so fun. I also iconed all new tags this time! No worries though I'll be back to the usual next time.
Off to watch Mean Girls!

Yeah. This would've had more icons and would have been posted in a few days except a girl called Brooke made me post these now by threatening to make me go and watch some violent horror movie. Do not want.
Ummm. Oh yeah. Fancy recommending me some new series whilst I'm here? I need some new things to icon from.
edit: Sorry about the lock. XD I wouldn't have realised if someone hadn't pointed it out.

This is a rather experimental batch. I've just been testing out different colourings and such. To be honest I think that it would have been finished a lot sooner if I hadn't decided to re-do half of them!
