Stock Icons [03 Dec 2006|08:30pm]

flamingo_killer
Wow, I'm kind of a horrible updater. It's not that I haven't been making things in Photoshop--I have--but things have been busy. I graduated from high school and have almost completed my first quarter at Stanford University, so things have been hectic. That's no excuse, though. So, I'm going to try and post some stuff I've made over the last few months (spacing it out over a few days so your f-lists don't die) and then try not to be so lazy :)

In this post: 17 stock icons. Examples:
1. 2. 3.

See them all hereCollapse )

Random graphics dump: HP, Jon Stewart banners, LotR, Butterflies, Dom, Music legends...colorbars [23 Apr 2006|05:44pm]

flamingo_killer
Sorry I haven't updated in a long time! I've been extremely busy with college application stuff.

Here is a random graphics dump:

-Two banners (Jon Stewart, Harry Potter)
-Five colorbars (LotR [+3 alternates], butterflies, music legends, weather and Dominic Monaghan)

No teaser because everything is too big.

See everything hereCollapse )



Please show your support for the community by joining here

Ok, for the headers/banners/wtv:
-Please upload to your own server. I don't have enough bandwidth to support widespread use of my links, unfortunately.
-You can use for whatever you want on livejournal. Credit it in your userinfo if using. If you want to use it outside of LJ, just leave a comment and let me know for what!

Also, I have a bunch of icons from the pilot of Lost that I will post soon. Yay!

I took a bunch of these phrases from all over the internet--tons of Liberal websites, bumper stickers, etc. Though some of these are my own...I'm not that funny.
#17-->Jon Stewart quote

There will be a ton more of these, I'm just a bit behind on homework at the moment so I had to stop.

Tutorial: Color isolation (monochrome) and eye color adjustment [03 Mar 2006|11:14pm]

flamingo_killer
[ mood | tired ]

Hey everyone!

A few people were interested in seeing this tutorial, so I decided to put it together.

This tutorial was created for Adobe Photoshop 7.0, though I think it can be used across versions of PS and is translatable to other programs. ETA: If you are a PSP user, cho_malfoy explained some changes you should make here. It's fairly easy, and I avoided using Curves for beginners/intermediates who may not have mastered that yet.

You will be going from this to Image hosting by Photobucket

The whole tutorial! Image heavy.Collapse )
I hope that this was clear and easy to understand. If there is ANY step with which you would like assistance or don't quite understand my phrasing, please let me know in the comments! If you have any suggestions on how to strengthen the tutorial, I'd love to hear that as well!

Remember: the settings you use will almost definitely be different for every picture on which you use this technique. Your brightness/contrast layers and variations will not be constant. Make sure to adapt your settings for the picture that you're using!

I'd love to see anything that you made with this tutorial, so feel free to post them in the comments!

I hope you enjoyed this, again, and happy graphic-ing! Let me know your thoughts :)

Resources: Light Textures [26 Feb 2006|11:57am]

flamingo_killer
[ mood | drained ]

Three light texture sets today. All were made in Adobe Photoshop 7.0 using nothing but Photoshop presets. All zip file downloads contain the actual images plus a pattern file (.pat) that should be compatible with all versions of Photoshop 7.0 +, but I'm not 100% sure. If you don't use Photoshop 7.0 or higher (a lower version of Photoshop, PSP, Gimp, etc.), I suggest just taking the actual images and doing what you will with those rather than struggling with the .pat file. [Why define light textures as a pattern file? grrliz explains here]

Click on the preview or link below to go to my [brand new!] DeviantART account.

Six Icon-sized Light Textures

[Download]




Two more sets hereCollapse )

These are my first ever light textures, so I'd love con-crit and any of your thoughts! Should I continue to make resources/light textures for public use?

-Questions? Just ask!
-Please credit fks_graphics in your resource post (if you have one) and, if someone asks where you got them, try to point them this way!
-DO NOT redistribute or claim as your own. However, you may link to this post if you ask nicely.
-Other guidelines can be found here. Please read them!
-If you haven't already, you can join the community here

-If you encounter any broken links or problems (like the wrong .pat file or incorrect images in a .zip), please tell me right away so I can fix it immediatley!

That's it! Thanks a bunch for looking and for your thoughts!

Hey watchers of this community!

I'm going to be in Tahoe for about a week for Christmas break, and I don't know if I have photoshop up there. I'll talk to you all when I get back if my laptop doesn't have photoshop on it!

ALSO, for members who have made requests: if your request has not yet been filled, I will do so soon. For those of you who have had it filled, I hope you enjoy your icon or colorbar! I'll post all of them for everyone to see when I finish the entire set :)

Happy Holidays!!

Ew, I hate this post :-p

Ok, so photoshop thought that it would be cool to close without saving what I had done in about half of these, which is why they look weird/unfinished/etc. Sorry :(. Also, I wrote my own table code this week because I was too lazy to get the code I usually use, so hopefully this is ok.

This week has been really rough so I can't get to the requests right away, but I promise I will get to them as soon as possible.

1. The style for #10 was stolen shamelessly from siricerasi with permission.

I just had to squee very audibly about two things:

1. OMG over 50 members! Awesome! You know what that means--I will start to fill requests from members! If you haven't made a request yet, go here!

2. OMG, I won for best Black and White icon at lost__awards! AWESOME! For those of you curious, it was a variation of the icon I'm using in this post.

You guys rule. :D. Icons and colourbars soon! However, this week = epitome of stress for me, but I will do the best I can!

18 Lost, Alias, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Orlando Bloom Icons [04 Dec 2005|12:22am]

flamingo_killer
[ mood | disappointed ]

Colorbars tomorrow afternoon. I'm working on them, and there are going to be a whole bunch, so keep your eyes out.

In this post:
Alias text icons (2, one animated)
Orlando Bloom (3)
Pirates of the Caribbean (Jack's Back, 1)
Lost (What Kate Did, Confidence Man [8])

There is only one "spoilery" icon from "What Kate Did," and even then you'd have to watch the show to get it. However, those icons are under a seperate LJ cut, so if you don't want to see them, you don't have to.

Samples:


What Kate DidCollapse )

Everything ElseCollapse )

I'm kind of disappointed by this post. I haven't made Lost icons in a while, so I was hoping to get a good set out. The caps from "What Kate Did," though good quality, where pretty dark, so it was nearly impossible to iconize. I dunno, I just...gah. I was considering not posting this, but whatever, it can't hurt, right?

So, my question for you is: which would you like to see first? You can rank them, if you'd prefer doing it that way.

Again, thank you all so much for joining. :D
