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. ♥

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

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!!

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.

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
