[misc] journal closure

This community is now closed, I have moved all future graphical works to versiform. It is time for me to move on and start afresh, and also because of boredom. XD I will not be deleting this journal though, I wish to keep it for rememberance purposes.

I would like to extend to all the people who downloaded anything I made, or had friended this journal, a huge thank you for all your support. If you wish, please friend versiform now instead for updates. Hoping that you will continue to support any graphics that I will make in the future.

Thanks again for everything, and wishing you all best for the future.

[tutorial] setsuna - deepened colours

Since I had a nice response to my last icon post (thanks guys!), which used this particular method to make the icons, I have relented and decided to share how I did this. It's a simplistic tutorial, using only gradients primarily, but it can possibly bring out some great results.

Learn how to go from this to

Using PS 7.0, with EASY level of difficulty (just textures and colour layers), definitely transferable to other programs.

That's it! Now you can add text, borders, whatever to the icon, or just leave it as it is. I am aware that this won't necessarily work for all images though, mainly with light to mid coloured manga images, however this comes out really nicely. Just play around with the settings a bit to your liking. ^^

Comments and examples of icons you made with this tut are love.~

[icons] major haul!

It's been a while since I've done a proper, non-challenge update, I thought it was due.

Nothing really special to say about this latest batch of icons - apart from there's a lot of them, and they're made using the same method. So if you like them and want to know how they're created, drop me a message. I may do a tutorial in the future.

[tutorial] another bunch of icon tutorials!

I haven't done a tutorial post for quite a while, and here I am presenting two! Wow. And I've decided to show how the effects I gain look on other pictures, something that I should do from now on.

Okay, let's begin.

[mood theme] count cain (manga)

thoughtful loved thirsty
good dorky accomplished
[VIEW FULL THEME]


I'd been wanting to make another mood theme for quite a while, but I had no idea what to make. Then I finally got the entire Count Cain series (in scanlations, and most recently, RAW chinese versions), bit the bullet and decided to make one revolving around one of my most favourite manga of all time. Kaori Yuki is a goddess!

It's my second mood theme, but my first full one. Meaning all 132 moods have been allocated a unique picture! It was hell though trying to find pics for some of the moods. I mean, CC doesn't really have "bouncy" or "high" type of moods in it. or at least obvious ones. I had to think rather creatively about some of them...

Instructions on how to install a mood theme onto your journal (free and paid ways) can be found in HERE @ crackified.
