『011 號』 ;notice & small icon dump [11 May 2008|12:07am]

mechanistic
[ mood | working ]

So after that five month hiatus I went on an even longer hiatus. I wanted to dedicate as much time as possible on my schoolwork, seeing as how this is my final year in high school. As a result, I dropped pretty much all of my old hobbies, including LJ and iconing. Unfortunately, I more or less ended up wasting all that effort I put into my work, but what's done is done.

That being said, I've decided to come back to LJ (under my new account, of course). However, since I'm still in school for another month and a half, graphic designing will have to take a back seat, so expect Sarekoto to remain on semi-hiatus. Once school is over, I'll try to update more often, maybe make a new layout for it, but no promises - my interests have shifted, so I'm not as interested in iconing or even in jrock as I used to be.

As a sort of an apology for my disappearing act, I've slapped on here uploaded the few icons I made while on my hiatus. They're a little plain, but that's because they were made mainly for my own personal use. Hopefully I've improved somewhat while I was away... I'd be pretty disappointed if I didn't. .____.

Also: textless icons are not bases... although if you ask nicely, there's a good chance I will say yes. =]

OMIGOD! I am back... after a five month hiatus, is it? I'm sorry, I don't have a lot of icons to make up for my absence..

However, since it's summer now, I think I'll have more time to make icons, so I'll try to update more on a regular basis for the next two months. -_____-;;
I also have some wallpapers that I've been meaning to upload, so I guess I'll do that later.

Please comment and credit if you take any icons~ ♥

NOTE: Just in case anyone should be confused about the category placement for Initial D, it's under Chinese icons because, even though Initial D was originally Japanese, the Initial D live-action movie was made by a Hong Kong company, so it was filmed in Chinese.

『009 號』 ;gazette 50music → final batch [16 Feb 2007|10:56pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Yeeesss I am done!! 8D

I'm so glad. This was fun but... I felt bad because I didn't have as much time as I would've liked to complete it, which is why I only finished the batch like a month and a half after my original deadline. Even with the extra time I recieved from the 50music's mod I'm still not completely satisfied with this batch. The second batch is without a doubt the best one out of the three.

I think this time my Uruha and Reita icons are better, but I seem to have slacked off a bit for the Ruki ones. -__________-;; Oh well, I make enough Ruki icons as it is.

『008 號』 ;tutorial #3 [03 Feb 2007|12:14am]

A friend of mine asked me how to get the burst-of-light effect for monochromatic icons, so I made this tutorial for her. Hopefully it'll help you guys too; it's actually really really easy.

I'm almost done the Gazette 50 icons challenge, so I'll post the last batch up soon! 8DD

『007 號』 ;tutorial #2 [24 Jan 2007|12:10am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

I didn't really feel like studying, so I made another tutorial. This one is (very) similiar to the first one, but it should be easier. An icon in six steps; how easy is that?

  →  

Tutorial #2Collapse )

Well? Did you guys find it easier this time? I think the Uruha icon used for this tutorial is a lot better than the Aoi one made for the last...
But anyways, if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment or email me or whatever. I'm always willing to help. ♥

Yeaaaahhh I don't know what's up with those 12012 sets either. I usually don't make sets, but for some reason these two photoshoots seemed perfect for icon sets, so I compromised quantity for quality. Seriously, I spent like minimal time on those icons. I think you can tell, they're not very well done... o_____o;;;

Please remember to comment and credit if you take anything. ♥

I... I tried. I tried. But I still failed horribly on these, especially the Uruha and Reita ones. ;___;

But... for some reason, the Aoi ones turned out rather nicely. I think this implies something. .____.

I was a little bored last night, so I made a tutorial for you guys. It's not very good, though... Maybe you guys can make better icons than mine. ^^;

『001 號』 ;old icons [13 Aug 2006|12:04pm]

[ mood | exhausted ]

First icon update~!! ☆ Are you guys excited? I am haha. I can't believe it's taken me this long just to get Sarekoto started. >___<;; I'm sorry, guys, I'm a very unmotivated person.

First batch of icons are actually my old ones. Some of these are almost a year old, actually. (I think you can tell which ones those are; they're quite badly done. >___>;)

Anyways, take what you like, if you happen to like any. Just please remember to credit sarekoto if you use them. And, ahh, I'll try to get my newer batch of icons up soon. ^^;
