Yesterday I went to the RSL for raffles, because my mum had to work... didn't win anything, but I got to meet to my best friend. :D

Oooh, yesterday I also made a new sidebar for my tumblr! Mainly because I wanted it to be more pastel-y. And I got sick of the other one I had. It's still the same scene, just different... yeah.

Latest Arc-V was excellent, as usual. But Yuya's coping mechanism will kill me one day, I can see it. :(

Since I got money, I'm thinking of buying that South Park game, The Stick of Truth, but I'm not sure if I'd actually play it. Watch_Dogs comes out next week, and I'll definitely play that, but....

Hopefully I can muster up enough motivation to do the next gifset for my Seven by serial thing. I want to do it, but thinking up an interesting way to tie gifs together, and going through 40k Battlefield caps, hahah. XD And making icons, too. Maybe.

That all sounds nice! ^_^ Love the new Tumblr look. Good luck with the Seven gifs! I've been doing classic icons too, since great people like you gave me links to find lots of lovely caps :D

I did manage to get some motivation for a Seven gifset! :D Yay! And then I made more icons until PS decided to stop working... watching Buffy now~ ♥

Alllll the Classic icons! :D

Yayyyy! Annoying PS froze on you though, but at least you had Buffy!

I love them ♥ All the One and Ian and Barbara and Vicki being the cutest, most beautiful babies in the universe ♥

Epicness all around! :D

I was thinking I'd try to work in some colours/use textures with the classic icons, but I ended up liking the b&w so much I hardly touched it at all, just light tweaking made it look so pretty :') So there haven't been any new techniques involved for the icons yet, practising my texture use and trying to cut characters without it looking awfully sloppy—and I used text brushes for the first time on a graphic for a friend ^_^ (I'd tried them before but they didn't really fit the icon at the time, too much of a close-up.)

You? Still enjoying pastel? :D

I have about... 74 Main Range audios until I'm all caught up! Eeeee~ :D ... Last year, I was about 150 audios away...

With b&w, I like using like... a brown-ish colour fill, and then putting it on linear burn, it makes it all sepia-y. ♥ Of course, you can do it with any colour. I just like sepia. XD Adding a bit of noise to b&w is nice too, I've taken to doing that.

Yep. Pastel is lots of fun! :D Don't do it on anime though, that's a whole different thing...

Yayyyyyyy! :D

I'll have to think of trying that! I've been playing a bit with light gold and pink fills on just one of the icons, but I'm not sure what blend modes I used, probably just soft light. Sepia is cool! And I'm not sure what noise is, I'll have to look it up.

^_^

:D

With things like noise and colour fills though, going for a lower opacity is best. Too much and it overwhelms easily. There's some noise on this icon! *points* :D </p>

Another awesome thing on b&w icons: GRUNGE. ALL THE GRUNGE!!

I love this one! It's beautiful :D

Re: opacity and grunge: noted ;)

Thanks! It's from my icons tonight~ :D

Another cool thing to do with monochrome, using colour fills (maybe gradients? I don't use gradients often with monochrome) is to get to complementary colours and making one layer multiply/linear burn and the other screen or something. Interesting~ Like, a dark purple layer on linear burn at 20% opacity, with a gold layer on screen at about 33%. And yeah. XD

Yay! :D

That does sound lovely! Gosh, I'll have a lot of things I'll need to remember trying :D Thanks for the tip!

:D

I think I don't know enough monochrome tricks, and then I tell you 5 things you can try. Hahah~ XD I don't know any new ones though, with the latest that is adding noise. It makes it look nice.

Yeah, that's not half bad! Hahaha :D ♥
