Hey guys! Holy Ef, I'M POSTING?

Lol, just wanted to let you guys know I appreciate all the comments and friendings I'm still getting even though this place isn't active anymore. It made my day! :)

Not sure what I said last time, but this place is definetely fully inactive now. I do not plan to post anymore graphics. HOWEVER, I will NEVER close it down. Everything will stay uploaded, you can access and continue to use anything here.

As an FYI, I graduated a month ago!!!! I got my Bachelor of Fine Art's in Graphic Design :) And I created a website for a portfolio with my work, its at www.mowdgraphics.com if anyone is interested :) I will be placing a link to this place, since this is really where I got my start!

Once again, thank you to all of you who continue to support me :) If anything ever goes down and you want any icons reuploaded or anything, feel free to email me at ward1mi@cmich.edu and let me know, as I don't check in here a lot, it looks weird on my phone, which is what I usually use to get online now!

Ok guys. I'm sure some of you saw this coming, but I figure I'll make it official.

This community is back on a hiatus

Honestly with school I am sooooooo busy right now. And I'm putting a lot more ambition into my classes since I'm doing a lot of graphic design work right now, so I don't really have time or ambition to do any icon work. This may turn into me closing this place down eventually, because I don't see in the future me ever having any time for this anymore.

I'm not going to do requests, but I may have a Christmas Request this year again, we'll see how much time I have. You can still access everything that I already have in here, I doubt I will ever completely delete this place.

Sorry guys, but my career is more important, as next semester is my last semester of college! I luv all of you who follow this place :)

OMG I'M POSTING! This journal is NOT dead. Sorry. :P

AS always, I have legit reasoning :P I've literally been working constantly this summer! I just worked for almost 3 weeks straight for gods sake :P And honestly, when I'm not working, I'm either running errands or I really just don't wanna do a damn thing :P Besides that, I went on a Kingdom Hearts binge for a while. I played all three PS2 games :P For anyone wondering, RE: Chain of Memories BLOWS. Getting to play as Riku didn't even make the game worth it, which for me, is saying a lot :P

Anywho... I feel bad that I haven't posted in like 4 months and I still don't even have that much to post :P I haven't really wanted to do much.

SOOO this post is a couple different things. Avatar because its an AWESOME movie, some stuff from the Deathly Hallows trailer (SO MUCH SQUEEEING AND AWESOMENESS! Is it November yet?), some Harry Potter icontest stuff, some Kingdom Hearts (I had to after the KH binge :P plus I made the caps, so why not use them), and finally stuff from the last few episodes of Glee (mostly the Lady Gaga ep, because it was AMAZING).

I don't know how much I will be posting from now on. I go back to school next week, so that will limit how much time I spend doing icons. BUT when Eclipse caps come out, I WILL be iconing it, and as more Deathly Hallows stuff comes out, I WILL be doing that. Plus probably more Glee. But it might be a few more months lol.

Lastly, For those viewing this post for the Glee icons, PLEASE CHECK OUT MY COMMUNITY gleelite_icons! I need members!

Icons Total: 86
{1-10} Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Trailer
{11-26} Harry Potter Icontest stuff
{27-48} Glee
{49-68} Kingdom Hearts I & II
{69-86} Avatar

Hi all!!! So, unfortunately no icons today, but I have something slightly more awesome :) Well if your a Kingdom Hearts fan its awesome :P

So I went in search of good Kingdom Hearts caps the other day, only to find that almost ALL of the links r dead, the journals owners absent so no reuploads, and what I DID find were low quality caps :( So I said, F THIS! And took it into my own hands :P

After like 3 days of trying to figure out how to screencap on a Mac, which I thought would be easy but was NOT, I finally had to ghetto rig things together, but goddamnit I figured it out. Then I found pretty AMAZING high quality videos for the opening, ending, and some in between for Kingdom Hearts 2, some low quality but ok videos for the 2 secret endings of Kingdom Hearts 1 (because I love Riku, you should know this by now :P) and capped them.

So here I have to offer to you few Kingdom Hearts fans out there, SCREENCAPS YO! The first 2 are low quality, I'm not gonna lie. The videos sucked a bit, so they aren't too big and are meh. BUT considering how high def and beautiful the graphics in the actual videos are, its worth it. The second two are opening and closing scenes of Kingdon Hearts 2, and they are fairly good quality and larger than any other caps I've ever found. Also, Please take into consideration this is the first time I've ever done screencaps, lol, so they may be a little wonky. There in there should not be any or few black or white screens, I picked a lot of them out.

RULES
- Credit is NOT REQUIRED! I really could care less, I made these for me and figured there might be like 10 other ppl out there interested, lol, so don't worry about it.
- Comments would be appreciated! I'd like to know who is using these, and if my time spent getting these posted was worth it lol
- If you feel like you wanna give me some kind of credit, I would prefer you link to this journal in the post you put icons/graphics in. Don't have to, would be appreciated :)
- Completely unrelated, but Check out my Glee elite icon comm gleelite_icons! I only have 4 members and no ones applied yet, lol, it makes me sad :P

Examples and LinksCollapse )

***Notes***

*If anyone wants more from any of these videos (I know the "Another Side Another Story" are sparse) let me know. I also have a video of the opening with credits for 2 with clips from 1 and 2 w/ the credits running, the credits at the end w/ the photos and videos in the corners, all of the videos of memories from Roxas' half of the story at the beginning of the game (where he sees Sora doing everything in game 1), and the trailer for Birth By Sleep that was the secret video at the end of 2. If you can find any other good high def videos of ANY of these games and you want caps, let me know, and I'll do it :)

*In the process of doing this, I got nice screencapping software that only works w/ DVD's. I MAY post my DVD's and poll if anyone wants any capped. That will probably be on Thursday if I decide to do it. LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED!

* I should be posting icons in like 2 weeks. Am almost finished w/ Avatar, have caps for the last 3 eps of Glee, and now obv caps for Kingdom Hearts. Might have some Harry Potter in there too.

Hey all! I just thought I would post really quick to let you all know that I just made an icon community for Glee icons! It's an elite icon comm, so you have to apply to post, but if you just wanna see what's posted feel free to watch it :) I literally just made it today, so there really isn't anything in there yet lol.. If you know anyone that makes Glee icons, let them know about it! :)

Guess what? FINALLY posting some icons!

And I have to say.. I'm pretty pumped about this post :) Not only is it like I said, I think the biggest number of shows/movies/ppl in one post I've ever done (ok second biggest, I found one bigger from like 3 years ago :P), but also, this is kind of a new style for me. I looked at a lot of my old work on this computer and realized it is kinda over saturated. And a lot of my old techniques didn't really work on this computer. So I'm trying some new stuff out. And actually, this is also the biggest post in general I've done in at least a year or so now :P

So ya. Not gonna list all the stuff in here and explain it all. Because it's a lot :P

I would really appreciate it if you guys could let me know what you think of these. I wanna know if this new style is working or not.

Icons Total: 100
{1-12} Dianna Agron
{13-29} Glee (eps 14 & 15)
{30-34} Lea Michele
{35-39} Stardust
{40-44} Lady Gaga ft. Beyonce "Telephone"
{45-53} Lord of the Rings (all 3 movies)
{54-66} Moulin Rouge
{67-76} New Moon
{77-86} Emma Watson
{87-89} Hayden Panettiere
{90-100} Lady Gaga

Hey all! I thought I would update you guys on whats going on! :)

So I've been crazy busy with school, BUT I have been working on icons! I'm working on probably the biggest post I've done in a few years.. Like not big w/ how many but like subjects :P I've got like 8-10 different subjects already :P

I'm still trying to adjust to the new computer, but so far things are a lot easier on the Mac, I LOVE IT! Plus my coloring will be different, because everything I did in the past looked a LOT more saturated and kinda ugly on here :P Also, the methods I used before produced different results, so there's a lot of experimentation in the batch I'll post.

Lastly, I made my own font for my typography class, and I might include a download for it if anyone's interested. It'll only work on Macs, fyi. I'll include some kind of preview for it.

Expect the post I'd say in like 2-3 weeks. Next week will be slow for me, and then the week after is finals, and after that, I have nothing but work for the summer!

Hey guys! So, I'm posting this a LOT sooner than I thought! Because I GOT MY NEW MACBOOK AND ITS MADE OF AWESOME!!!!! :D

I can get online at my apartment with it, for now at least, so I'm gonna post this now!

As a kind of warning, I still don't know how long it will be before I will be posting again. I forgot that my copy of photoshop wont work on this computer because its for Mac. I'm hoping to get the Adobe creative suite CS4 version this weekend or next week, but that depends. Once I get it, I'm still not sure how soon I'll be making work again, because I dont really have anything I wanna do right now lol. I'll probably give it a month then start up again near the end of the semester.

This post is ENTIRELLY Glee :P I know its a little insane, but its from like 8 episodes I think :P

Icon Count:
{1-74} Glee Season 1 (eps 1-8)

Hey guys! A few updates really quick..

Sorry I haven't posted yet. I'm currently working on a Glee post. It's like 70% done. I'm either super busy w/ school, or honestly, just not in the mood to make anything lol. I've been having a lazy period lately.

As an FYI, I plan to post the above mentioned icons soon, and after that I dont know how soon I'll be posting again. I'm currently in the process of FINALLY getting a new macbook! :D The only thing is I might be getting the adobe creative suite or a few of the programs updated to CS4 hopefully, so I dont know if once I get it if I'll be transferring my current copy of photoshop over or just waiting til I get the new one. Either way, I wont have photoshop for a little bit probably. On top of that and getting used to the new laptop, I dont know how soon it'll be before I post again. But I know I will, because if I have Photoshop CS4 I'm gonna use it :P

As another announcement, someone brought to my attention that someone's claiming a few of my icons are theres over HERE. I'm trying to get her to take them down, but the entire blog and everything is in Polish, which I dont speak :P So, ummm, is there anyone around here that speaks polish that could leave her a message that I want them taken down? Lol bc I tried and it didnt work for some reason :P If you could I would SOOO appreciate it, let me know if you can :)

Even though people stealing and claiming my work doesnt happen too often, this is still like the 5th time this has happened. I hate being that snotty icon maker who makes her journal friends only, bc I think its stupid, but if this happens again I might have to. RESPECT THE ICON MAKERS PEOPLE!

Hey guys!!! So a friend of mine, so_severus had a link in her journal to a community which is allowing graphics/icon makers to auction off there talents by making a certain number of icons for the highest bidder who will donate there winning bid to a charity to help relief in Haiti. I thought it sounded like something I could do, so I put up a bid HERE!

If any of you are interested in helping out in Haiti and want some icons or a header from me check it out!!! There are a TON of makers on there, so check them out too!
