Batch #17: Did it for the lulz

Tiny batch is tiny, but it's better than nothing!

06x Tsubasa (vampires)
04x Hoshi no Kirby (Kirby)
02x Fullmetal Alchemist (Greedling, Alphonse)
02x Mushishi (Ginko)

Klavier / rock 'n' laws


Okay, so, I have no excuse. I've been in this graphics' block for centuries. I can't believe the last time I posted was JUNE. If communities were like houses, this one would be inhabited by hobos and rats with rabies already.

The batch is kind of tiny. I hope you like it. There's a lot of LOLlawyer videogame plus some CLAMP from LIMS entries and stuff.

But at least I changed the layout? :D See: icondork icondork icondork

27x Apollo Justice (Klavier, Vera, Apollo, Trucy, Ema)
07x Cardcaptor Sakura (Li, Tomoyo, Fujitaka, Touya, Yukito)
02x Okami (Amaterasu, Tama)
06x random CLAMP (Rikuou, Souryuuden, Chunhyang, Yuzuki, Umi)
TOTAL: 42 - answer to Life, the Universe, and Everything

Exercise your right to vote . . . again!

Weirdly enough, I'm nominated for CLAMP icons and Best Crack :P But you guys should vote for the best iconists from the classified ones, rly.

Right, back to your friendlist schedule. And I go back to my boring studying schedule.

ETA: Hmmmm, we should change the layout. Let's see what I can do about it.

Batch #15: Teeny weeny

Even though I won't be able to make icons until my finals are over (more like I won't let myself), I thought I should plug this:

Be a part of the democratic process!

And so it won't look so empty and spammy, I do have a few uglies, from last week's experiments, to share. Let's call it the starry night batch for obvious reasons.

-- 2x Clow
-- 1x Sakura
-- 1x Li
-- 1x Tomoyo
-- 1x Touya
-- 1x Kaho

Batch #14: I haven't updated in how many months?!

Well, I had an awful icon's block and I didn't touch any icontest in ages, so I was trying to accumulate stuff before posting. I really hope this never happens ever again.

Some of these icons are pretty old, also. There's not even a lot of CLAMP or of big fandoms in it.

And beware, because I fell in love with the videogame Okami, so you'll see it a lot in the next posts.

x47 Slayers (Lina, Gourry, Amelia, Zelgadis, Xelloss)
x07 Mushishi (Ginko)
x05 CLAMP (Oruha, Yuuko, the warashis)
x04 The Last Unicorn (Schmendrick, Schmendrick/Molly)
x02 Fullmetal Alchemist (Winry, Hohenheim)
x02 Avatar (Iroh)
x01 One Piece (Chopper and Carue)
x01 Princess Tutu (rocks fall, everybody dies?)
x01 Discworld art (Ponder Stibbons)

TOTAL == 70

Batch #13: unlucky? let's play with selective color!

*points above* Like the title says. I've been trying to learn the arts of selective color in anime icons. Sometimes I can work it out, sometimes I can't. Anyway, this is a test batch so the quality varies from product to product. I need practice, I think. But thankfully, the test subject is very shiny and colorful.

x072: Slayers (Lina, Gourry, Lina/Gourry)
x319: Screencaps for episode 01

They're all from the first part of the first episode, and that's why there's only from these two characters. Yes, Estefanía, you *will* have your Zelgadis icons!

Collapse )

By the way, I zipped all the caps I made for episode 01. Grab them here (15 and something MB) I don't need permission or credit for using these on graphics or websites or galleries, but it's appreciated (a link to icondork or

Batch #12: That's it?!

You gain something, you lose something. That means: when I'm out of the writer's block, I'm in an icon's block ¬_¬ So I don't have a lot of icons to offer in this batch because I haven't done a lot these last months. I promise a better icon batch on February, probably with more shounen manganime, and more of these RG Veda omake icons. And a couple more of x-ing signs, if I can remember how I made them...

10x RG Veda
(chibi Ashura, Ashura/Yasha, Karura-oh, Karyoubinga, Kendappa-oh, Souma, Ryuu-oh, Kujaku)
8x Cardcaptor Sakura
(Yukito, Yue, Touya, Sakura, Tomoyo, Li, Eriol/Kaho)
3x Random CLAMP photoshop'ed: crossing signs
(Mokona, Kero, Suppi)
(Yuuko, Tanpopo the bird)
1x Tsubasa
1x Duklyon

TOTAL == 100 * (1/4) == 25 (LOL Math)

Batch #11: Halloween!

I heard there's a certain person who used an icon of mine as a base, deleted the text on it, and put some instead saying exactly the opposite of my text. I'm not pointing out or mentioning names or flaming her icon post, but I only want to say this: nimwit, if you're reading this, READ MY RULES and get the hell away from my icons. This kind of crap is one of the reasons that's making me believe a big percentage of your OTP's shippers can't read for fuck. (Please, sane shippers of that couple, don't feel insulted.)

Ahem. Happier thoughts.

Guys, tokyonoir's Animanga Iconmakers Awards is now in the voting round, so go support your favorite iconmakers! and us too :D Even though I'm screwed as I'm the worst in my only category and I'll be pwned XPP But seriously, the work she and her friends went through to organize it is unbelievable!

Exercise your right to vote!

This post is sucky. But it's because I wanted to make a couple of Halloween-themed fandom icons and post them before the date, but I had almost nothing else to go with. So *shrugs* here they are. Have a nice Halloween if you celebrate it, or a joyous Samhain, or a nice Día de Muertos, or a good I-wish-I-could-eat-candy-in-disguise-like-the-Anglosaxons day.

08x Fullmetal Alchemist
(Random Halloween, Rockbells, Mei and Xiao Mei, Roy)
07x Random CLAMP
(Text, Mokona Modoki in Halloween)
04x Cardcaptor Sakura
(Cerberus, Eriol's guardians, Fujitaka)
03x Tsubasa
(Ryuu-oh, Mokona)
01x Gohou Drug

TOTAL: miserable 23 icons
Bad jokes: only 3 this time

Batch #10: Yes, Internet memes

First of all, I want to thank the folks who nominated this journal and both of us for tokyonoir's animanga iconmakers awards ^_^ Estefanía's output about this was, literally "WTFFFFF." Mine is "someone remembers my username?!" Personally, I don't know what the hell I am still doing there -I understand Este, but not myself- considering I'm not what you'd call a famous or even a good iconmaker, 3/5 of my votes were made by my mutual friends (and really, I actually told them off by cheating me in), and none of the big CLAMP iconmakers supported my nomination. Personally, I doubt I deserve it.

Second, I don't know what icons of mine to suggest for the run. I'm supposed to choose five to seven, but I'm not sure what to use since I lack what you'd call a personal style. They all look different! Which ones define me?! If any of you can make suggestions on good CLAMP icons I've made (and by good I mean pretty, not funny; the Kuro-llama song, for instance, is not pretty), I'll appreciate it. To save you time, I have them all listed by series here.

Well, I moved last month so between that and the incredible icon's block I've been having, I didn't have a lot to offer. So it looks like all I could do for this batch were bad jokes, some of them even in-jokes- and spinoffs of Internet memes. This time, art was sacrificed for the sake of, um, cheesy humor. However, I think the muse is sort of returning, so I might try to do more icons soon. If this semester's Schedule from Hell lets me.

07x Gohou Drug -Rikuou, Kazahaya, Kakei, Saiga
05x Cardcaptor Sakura -Yue, Yukito, Cerberus, Kaho, Eriol
04x XXXHOLiC -Doumeki, Yuuko, Raijuu
03x Ouran Host Club -Tamaki, Honey, Nekozawa
02x Princess Tutu -Fakir
02x Fullmetal Alchemist -Ed, Kimbley
02x Tsubasa -Primera, Spirit slash
02x RG Veda -Ashura
01x Kino no Tabi -Kino
01x Harry Potter -Luna
01x Kobato -Ioryogi
01x Dukylon -Kentarou and Takeshi
01x Magic Knight Rayearth -Lafarga
01x X -Kamui
01x Random CLAMP -Clow-cola?!

TOTAL: 34 icons

Batch #09: cards and chicks

First, a little survey for the people who are here for my CLAMP icons. Collapse )

Fine, let's get to business. This time we have... well, zero fandom icons O_o I'm sort of having an iconmaker's block and haven't touched icontests in two weeks. Instead, here's some random major arcana Tarot art and some bird stock.

22x Medieval Cat Tarot (Gina M. Pace & Lawrence Teng)
22x Miracle Tarot (Reiko Shimizu)
09x Stock
Little chicks, cygnet, parakeets, emperor penguins
