I know MAJ has moved, but I have a really hard time remembering what icons go where now that the properties are gone. I'm going to try to reconstruct what I can of the old posts, but if I can't, I think I may have to just tell you to look in the gallery for the old stuff.

In the meantime, and before I go off to camp, I have more new icons! ♥ I made all these pretty recently and there's a lot of them. The Weebl's icons are kind of stupid - you see, I was planning to make more, but an unexpected tragedy in my life has made me extremely guilty of ever making more ;__; I don't want to talk about it. But I do have 31 icons for you anyway:
  • 12 Spring Awakening
  • 8 Teen Titans
  • 5 Summit
  • 3 Weebl's
  • 2 Sky Doll
  • 1 Shadow Star Narutaru
I guarantee that when I get back from camp (August 14) there will be more Summit icons for my friends who want them, because we know new inside jokes get forged every year. =] Enjoy what's here, because I can't guarantee that there will be more before next month.

The most obvious thing you will have noticed around here is that I finally have a new layout after like two-and-a-half years with the old one or something. This one is mainly deep wine reds with lyrics from Default's "Wasting My Time". I figured a new look around here would really be good for this place because it's looked all gray for so long.

But I bet you want icons! I have some new ones from Sand Chronicles, a great manga now being serialized and published by Shojo Beat. There's nine behind the cut (mostly a mini-songset), and I'm in the process of making a shitload of Summit icons and I'm open for requests if you want anything. Man I wish that all those icontest communities were active, because I will be bored as all hell over summer vacation.

As promised, here's all the icons I've made lately. Not a lot, but my interest in making any graphics has really dwindled since Teen Titans was canceled. I'll keep this place open, obviously, but don't expect nearly as many new updates as I used to post. I am starting my digital photography class this quarter though, so I will get to play around with PhotoShop Elements and use my GIMP knowledge to get more awesome effects than everyone else :) Back to the icons, there is a variety behind the cut, and seventeen total...
  • 4 Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
  • 4 Summit
  • 4 Teen Titans
  • 2 Spring Awakening
  • 1 Naruto
love is another word for regretCollapse )

Coming next: icons from the wonderful Shojo Beat manga Sand Chronicles, the usual from Goo Goo Dolls videos/Shadow Star Narutaru/etc., and a SasukexSakura songset for 10_lyricons (hopefully)!

Okay guys, I have tons of icons ready to post and I'm working on more. I had planned to post them now, but my host is down at the moment (what are the chances?), so for those who actually care, hang tight for a few more icons. I know I haven't been paying any attention to this journal since camp, but I will have stuff coming very soon, because I have a long weekend and now would be the time to post stuff. So stay tuned for more Teen Titans, more Summit, some Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, some Spring Awakening, and hopefully another Naruto songset.

Guys, for those still watching, I know I'm taking an eternity to update. I haven't been making a lot of icons lately, mostly busy with other things and homework. I am working on a few other songsets and miscellaneous icons though, so one of these days I'll have the incentive to post them. Hang in there. I should also get a new layout, but I need ideas of what to do with that also.

Sorry for not updating in fucking forever, everyone... I haven't been making a lot of icons lately, and I should be doing more. For now here's what I made since the last update, and if I get any requests on TGN I'll post those up too. All 11 TT icons behind the cut.

your sins into me oh my beautiful oneCollapse )

Another multi-fandom post, and this one has lots for me to dump. The "extremely evil" Titans icons were a request, but I think they came out too well to not put here. Summit this year was awesome, and I'm still working on some more icons for it, so for now you get none. But I might as well get the rest of this over with before school starts and the mayhem begins.
  • 19 Teen Titans
  • 6 House

Since my old resources post got fucked up, I'm making a new one. It's got all the same stuff - what I use and where I get my stuff. I forget the links to some of these and some sites might be missing from the last post, so I'll try to get more in the coming few days, but this should do for now.

I told you it was coming!

For such an amazing, philosophical series that really lets you into the hearts and minds of its characters like no other, it's a terrible shame that neither the anime nor the manga for Shadow Star (Narutaru) has the fanbase it deserves. Partly from boredom and partly from inspiration, I made a fanmix for it.

A lot of these songs focus on the characters rather than events, but I did try to provide a solid amount of occurrences and overview too. Most of these songs or rock or pop in genre, so they're pretty diverse and enjoyable. As always, I have little notes on each song, and note that when I refer to a certain volume of the manga I'm talking about the Japanese tankoban. The order is fucked up in the English releases.

These are all iTunes M4P files, so without iTunes I don't think you'll be able to open them.

I'm going to warn all of you right now that there are major spoilers in my little blurbs about the songs. Insanely major and massive plot points are revealed about what happens after the end of the anime and the English manga's current place. I can't avoid talking about these spoilers in my explanations, because the song choices won't make sense without some exposition. I'm not kidding. If you read the series and don't want it completely ruined for you, DO NOT GO BEHIND THE CUT.


watching it all fade awayCollapse )

Okay, I have some more icons today... oh, happy belated fourth of July!
  • 11 G Gundam; this anime is so underrated. I haven't even seen the rest of the Gundam series, but G Gundam is awesome. It's another one of those series' I've loved since I was 8 years old, and I finally bought the first half of the anime today, and so I guess these are in celebration :D And even though I haven't seen the show in five years, Argo is still the coolest ever. Probably.
  • 5 Goo Goo Dolls - "Black Balloon" MV
  • 3 Summit (twelve days until I go back!)
