o2 ∞ legend of the seeker, once upon a time, misfits  
Um, yeah, another post for [livejournal.com profile] theiconquest. I promise I'll stop spamming your flist... maybe soon. I've done every quest in Chapter One and feel like I'm done for now, but there are still a few icons on the pile (icon-talk battle, my trope-overdosed icons etc. etc.). Okay, so, another small batch for [livejournal.com profile] theiconquest - the Sidequests this time. The first one was to use a certain colour palette in your icons - the chosen colour palette also affected the style of the icons (first palette concentrates on colouring, second one on composition/complexity). The second sidequest was all about fairytale motifs - yep, Simon is a unicorn now, deal with it. ;)

There's also a picspam I made for the current challenge at [livejournal.com profile] smashingart. The theme was "I want to go there" and for me that's the UK basically. So have a lot of beautiful shots of the English countryside. :3

OMG first icon post here! *is so giddy* Okay guys, I made an icon community. Obviously. When I first started on Livejournal (years after starting making icons... and years after quitting making icons), I thought it would just be a place to randomly drop some graphics now and then to not clutter my personal blog. Then I moved my personal thoughts to LJ as well (because of reasons) and I started iconning again and cluttering my new-found personal journal with icons. As I'm not seeing this ending any time soon (you'll see why just shortly after this wall of text is done), I decided to make a community. People feel more comfortable following a comm and I'm totally understanding this. So, community.

I'm starting my very first post with a promotion. Most of you probably already know about "The Icon Quest". Those of you who don't: go check it out, it's lots of fun!

The Icon Quest is a graphics-centered interactive community.
Enter challenges, make icons, earn points, become the ultimate icon maker!

tell me more! | sign-up

It looks a bit overwhelming at first, but it's a wonderful creative outlet, very inspirational and, if you want, interactive. You can sign up at guilds (but you don't have to!) and you get randomly thrown into them. You can find me at the mysterious underground (we're ~The Resistance) and there are lots of lovely people there! ♥

And while we're at it, let me finally get to my first icon post, lol. The first theme was "Adventure" and I've recently started and finished "Legend of the Seeker". So... I iconned this for my first attempt. (More thoughts on the show probably soon at my - now icon-free - journal.)

Well, if you're going to need to rescue every damsel in distress, there's no time to waste. )
