Hello and welcome to my new graphic journal. :D I decided I needed a fresh start. whoresque had been my graphic journal since Feb '04 and I was 15 when I made it, so the name 'whoresque' just doesn't... fit me anymore. Not that it ever did, really; I was just kind of obsessed with the word whore when I was younger. IDK, I was am weird.

If you'll glance through the tags or previous entries, you'll notice most of my graphics have been re-uploaded. I didn't upload all of my old stuff, some because it was complete crap and others because I didn't think anyone would care to see them again. (The latter being mostly my old Twilight/New Moon/Eclipse stuff. The movies came out; nobody seems to care for book icons anymore.) I also no longer have a Resource Post, 80% of the links in the old one are dead so it didn't seem like much use to anyone. If I have to credit people for screencaps/brushes/etc., I will do so at the bottom of the post from now on.

The Screencap Log has been trimmed majorly. Now it only includes Avatar: The Last Airbender, Eureka SeveN & W.I.T.C.H.. There's links to both .zip files and a gallery, please tell me if there's any broken links!

Also, I figured that since I'm trying to get back into my whole ~graphics mojo~ thing, I thought I'd open requests. Feel free to post as many images from the following fandoms as you want:

» Avatar: The Last Airbender
» Bleach
» Eureka SeveN
» Fruits Basket
» Fullmetal Alchemist
» Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (nothing past episode 26; or atleast nothing spoilery, please!)
» Kaichou wa Maid-Sama!
» Lovely Complex
» One Tree Hill (Joy, Sophia or Hilarie-centric images only, please! I do not care for the dudes in this show, at all.)
» Pretty Little Liars
» Taylor Swift
» The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
» The Vampire Diaries
» W.I.T.C.H.

Links to images only, please. If you link to a screencap gallery I'll just ignore the comment. If there's an anime not listed here that you want an icon of, link to the image as well. I really want to get into the hang of iconning anime/cartoons again, so I don't mind.

Yay, first comment! :D Sokka/Katara are SO FRAKKIN' HARD to icon 'cause of their skin coloring. Everytime I used to try they'd come out some weird purple/pinkish color. So I will try my hardest, but I cannot promise they will come out nice!

Do you know who made these two? If I make icons out of 'em, I wanna be able to credit the makers in the post.

Oh, and I iconned these two already in my Lovely Complex post:

Maybe I'll take another stab at 'em, though!

And thankyou so much for the insane amount of links. ♥

Ahaha, you are making my ego swell to the size of Texas about now. ♥♥♥

If you wanna post more manga pics, I wouldn't mind. And good luck finding LoveCom anime images! I had to screencap episodes myself to find any, and I deleted my caps a few months ago. D:

I missed the fandom train on ScraPrin. D: I liked it, but it wasn't something I flailed over or really cared about; I only iconned it for the pretty. Maybe I'll try re-watching it... I remember really liking Fulle (sp?). Ah well.

It's ok. :D Take your time~
❀neige: amu❝ yes!serah on August 22nd, 2010 11:47 pm (UTC)
well i always had a stupid love for the anime o//o so much i rewatched it for what...3 times or something and i never repeat myself with animes xD but wow do rewatch :D now someone even screencapped the show XD *sparkly eyes*

oh also i thought, what sort of anime you like to iconize or such, i mean, i watched a lot of anime genres from shojo to action so i kinda wonder if i could help with new fandoms :)

ohohoh thanks <333 (btw Dominic/Anemone love D8 that huuuuuuuurts <3)

No pressure if you don't want to work on the non-Avatar images! :D

Hihi! :D And I actually really like the two non-Avatah pictures! They seem really fun to work with.

Yay! I would totally love to request FMA icons as well but I'm new to the fandom and am on, like, episode 3 of FMA: Brotherhood. :P

Thankee thankee! Not gonna lie, I totally thought about you and your avatar_fans post when I was making some of my icon dump posts here. :)

Hopefully you'll find some you like, though I don't really make too many Aang icons, lol.

Thanks! :D

I didn't figure anyone would be interested in my Scrapped Princess icons, honestly, since I only made a couple. But I'll comment them here later if you want? I'm on my phone right now so I can't atm.

i thought you quit livejournal :C

i have a speshul request
i was wondering if you could share your coloring technique for your avatar icons
they're just so bright and colorful
i've tried/failed to imitate your style
if not, that's cool too

welcome back!!
i might be barely breathing, but i'm not dead.: azula // on the prowlbentfire on August 22nd, 2010 01:29 am (UTC)
Aw, thanks! It's not really that special. I just duplicate the base, set it to screen, duplicate the base again and set it to soft light. I then usually put a layer of #FF0000 to lighten and set it to somewhere between 5-20% opacity. Then I mess around tons in Curves/Selective Coloring, etc. It varies from icon to icon, really.
Sameucalyptuses on August 22nd, 2010 03:09 am (UTC)
thanks for sharing! :')

Btw, I found this awesome tutorial by gossymer. Maybe that'll help you out some more. :)

LOL, I love your "Pants Are An Illusion" name thing you've got going on. A+!

I said at the bottom of the post that I didn't mind doing other fandoms as long as you provide images, so I'll try to do some of your other caps. IDK if I'll be able to do the Gargoyles one. D: I'll try, especially on the last cap, but they're just so grainy I don't think I'll be able to do anything with them...

Sure, I'll re-post the Anita Blake and POTC icons. I was kindasorta waiting on the AB ones 'cause I thought I would make more (I just re-read the entire book series and was wanting to read through all the comics) but idk when I'll get around to doing that, so I'll try to make a post of those two fandoms in the next couple days. :)

Aww, thanks! Bah, I hated the movies. What I could tolerate in book form I could not when I heard actual people speaking those lines as if it were real. Egads. I used to like Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson (she was in Panic Room! he's Cedric Diggory!) and those movies just made me dislike them so. so. much.

idk. Guess I'm all Twilight-ed out. I couldn't even look at my old icons, I just skipped right past those folders on my computer, lol. /lame

Jacob is the books, for me atleast. Without him I wouldn't have even somewhat liked the book series. And yeah, New Moon/Eclipse are A LOT better than Twilight. I just wish Eclipse would've shown more of the B/J friendship, but oh well.

No deadline! I haven't even started working on the requests yet. I'm hoping to start tonight - I get off work at 3pm and have tomorrow off, so I'm dying to open up PSCS5!

Oh gods. Have you heard of Breaking Dan? I'd heard good things about it, but finally caved and read his review on Chapter Nine... I about died of laughter.

I legit gasped and clapped irl when I saw that you re-uploaded everything and (I assume but rly just hope) that it would mean you would make more things now :D SO EXCITE. I don't have any requests rn just wanted to say happy you're back and that your layout is stunning and now I'll go stalk your reuploaded ATLA posts :D ♥

Yes, I'm making new things! I've made several new icons and I'm rly rly stoked to get back into the hang of making posts here.

You need to make some Avatar icons, ma'am!

Oh I look forward to them!

Idk about iiiiicons yet however I do have a massive ATLA picspam that will be posted today at picspammy for the braintwin challenge. A friend and I did 3 caps per episode and I just finished like an hour ago and I am dyyyyyyyyying to post it. Partly because I really like mine but mostly just to see her's lol. I'm kinda nervous though because I've never (aside from the seldom Disney cap here or there) worked with animated caps in this magnitude before so I'm like... idk if I'm keeping true to the show or doing it justice or what. Excited though!

Post it, post it now, woman! :P Avatar is kinda hard to work with coloring. For me, all the Fire Nation people are somewhat easy, but oh god, anyone from the Water Tribe with their darker skin? I hate it. Hate so much. But your icons are always so lovely, even the odd animated one. The Tarzan one in your userpics is one of my faves!

I actually gathered the pictures to do a s1 Katara/Sokka picspam. I'll be curious to see if we did any of the same pictures.

Yeah the Water Tribe was definitely tricky to work with. I agree. Thank you very much though. I look forward to you comment (and any concrit if you have it).
