HA JK! Got one more post in before I head off! So some of these may look a bit different. I just got a new computer with a retina display and had to get a new form of PS. The display is taking some time to get used to. So sharpening etc may take some time to perfect. That being said---I like this batch and I hope you all do too!

Trying out a new format, let me know if you like it more/less, whatever!

An important note going in: If I specify a fill but not an opacity, or vice versa, it means it remains at 100%.

lover_of_narnia asked about the textures I used in 2 icons, and dark_x_huntress asked about 2 icons, one of which is the same. There is one thing they all have in common, and it's the painting layers. So I'm going to do 2 general tutorials about making something look painterly and using textures/paint layers. In particular:

These next two will be vague about the coloring specifics and focus more on blending the painterly textures and extra paint layers on.

so they named her after the dawnCollapse )

well you amazingly failedCollapse )

I'm working on a post which will be up shortly! And a tutorial for the following icon:

Ask the Maker is going on once more and dark_x_huntress , monstersinyou and adriftingsea asked about this particular icon. I do have the PSD(s), but the files got a little corrupted, so not all the info is 100%.


but i knew himCollapse )

doesn"t sooth the pain of lossCollapse )

I do have a new post in the works, as well as a few other icons that were requested, but if anyone else has any other questions on other works let me know!  And as always, if you have questions about what I posted let me know!  Happy creating!

Hey guys, I doubt anyone has any questions, but if you do here's a link to my thread!

Tutorial time!

The very amazingly talented and kind library_of_sex asked me how I did the coloring in this tumblr set.

This is later than I meant to post it, but not as late as I thought...sooo yay? Anyway, ON WITH THE SHOW! [gets played off by a piano off stage]

I know, long time no post. A lot of stuff has been going on the past few months and as it did my muse has been coming out in random moments. Going to take a moment to say thank you to an amazing maker and friend, hushingupnow aka Kim. We have been in a sadly similar state, and while it's sucked immensely, knowing I'm not alone in it has helped me a great deal. So this is for her---also, some icons are inspired by her stuff. It's amazing, you should all check it out.


I plan on going through and cleaning up the tags, they are in a sorry state. Also, I'm taking requests. Sometimes I need a bit of a shove if I'm feeling inspired and I don't know what to do. If you haven't noticed, there will be less OUaT. I'm no longer watching it as I'm not pleased with how it's going. That being said, I love the characters so not all hope is lost.
