I've been wanting an icon journal for the longest time, which is rather silly because I'll probably post once a month at most but there it is. Or, rather, here it is.
I guess here is a good place to discuss things like rules. *sigh* I hate them.
1. I only post from my LJ Scrapbook. If you can figure out how to hotlink to them, it isn't my problem. I still think it's rude but it isn't something I can control.
2. Credit is nice and I think it's a service to fellow fans who want to track down a maker but frankly, I can't be bothered to hunt you down if you don't. I don't trawl your userpics to make certain you've credited me. I'm not the Icon Police and I'm not your parent. "Improperly" crediting me or plain old forgetting to just isn't a major sin worth getting my panties in a wad over.
3. Which brings me to my only rule: don't steal. You didn't make it so please don't say you did.
4. I love comments. Adore them. I'll try to answer all comments.
I make every effort to credit those whose hard work makes it possible for me to play around with Photoshop. Here are my resources:Photoshop Resources (brushes, gradients, textures, etc.)Screen Cap ResourcesPictoral Index of Memorable Tutorials (Image Intensive)
If you want to know where I got something in particular, it's probably faster to ask me. I'm happy to help in any way I can so don't be shy. :) Lots of wonderful people on LJ have helped me and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to return the favor.
Want to browse icons by subject rather than by the date I posted them? They're here in my Scrapbook.
