Using gradients just may be the most important step in icon making, if you ask me. They just give icons an extra oomph that you can't seem to get with any of the other steps alone.

Anyway, I really like #1 here! Wild-eyed Jack and creepy Dead!Daddy really do make for an interesting icon. Plus your crop there is gorgeous! :)

Thanks! That's my fave too. I like #2 but the rest, eh, just experimenting. I would do a tutorial, but my version of Photoshop is literally 10 years old, so wouldn't help me much, LOL. In the meantime, eh, just dabbling while I avoid writing teh fic.

Now, while I can't get behind you avoiding fic (hee!) - I can get behind the dabbling with iconning!

On the subject of tutorials, I'm actually pretty 'meh' on them myself. I've never followed one, and have only written a couple - so I'm really not big on them like some people are. Playing around until you find your own (ever-evolving) style is the way I go with.

So keep dabbling away! :)

Heh. I just have a block lately ... hopefully it'll go away soon!

Aw, thanks for your encouragement! Your icons are so fantastic and mine are so horribly remedial. And I'm not looking to be reassured about them, just being honest.

Ooh, I wish I could afford a new copy of Photoshop! ;D Then I'd never get anything else done. LOL.

Aww! And thanks. But you're seriously getting better everytime you make icons. That's just the way it works. :)

The 4th one is SO fab, babe! I agree with Crystal, you get better every time! And if you want more gradients/brushes, I have a ton. ;)

Ah, thanks!! *smooch*


Ooh! Cool. I haven't tried to work with brushes because I don't think I can import them into my ancient copy of Photoshop.

Gradients are fun! Yay! I may hit you up if the toy box looks empty! ;-D
