Yes Yes Yes. Rub your eyes, do double takes ... get it all out! I'm back. Now, this is the point where I'd like to be all "TADA!" and have jazz hands and have a post of 100+ icons making my big enterance, but no. Not happening, sorry. For the most part this is just going to be a update post updating
you on a few things. I'll do bullets, as to make this more organized.
» ORDINARY_DREAM IS NOW EVERYLINE
. Yes, I changed my name. I didn't connect the two names, so anything credited to ordinary_dream will look like this: ordinary_dream
. I realize I can't reachout to every single person who ever took an icon of mine and have them change it, but as long as the majority of them change it I'll be happy. Here
are a few ways to now credit me for my icons. Feel free to pick whichever you'd like! Thanks! You will also see an iconversion of that little thing at each post, hopefully it'll aide as a visual example for the newbies who don't know how to credit icon makers.
» LIKEDEJAVU NOW HAS 300+ MEMBERS!
How this has happened in my absence of 2+ month's I really couldn't tell you. I'm not complaining, I'm just shocked. I think it's two-fold though, for one reason I know icon tutorial posts are making their way around circuts again, and I'm getting a lot of comments on old tutorials, so that probably has to do with it. And also with a reason I'll mention in the next bullet point. However it did happen though, I'm extremely excited and grateful. Thank you to everyone who joined, anyone who ever pimped and then some. I'm trying to work on something special for you guys, I just haven't decided what yet. But it'll be something good I hope. I'll keep you posted.
» YOU GUYS ARE THE GREATEST!
So apparently creamhugs
had a LJ Icon Awards while I was away, and one of their topics were "Best Icon Tutorials". I actually tied for first place with two other icon makers who coincidently I use their tutorials as if they were crack. You can see the spiffy banner they made on the main page in the sidebar. The other two makers were xg3n
. Thank you to anyone who voted! I appreciate it!
» THIS IS REALLY ALL I HAVE.
Sorry. Three bullets just seemed kinda lame. Anyway, I guess I'll just use this to tie-up loose ends. I still have some saved requests that I can/need to work on. And overall I've just been collecting pictures that I've been meaning to icon. My icon-mojo isn't 100% back, but it's getting there. I did realize that the only way I was going to get it back was if I started forcing myself to open PSP. So I've been doing that, mostly entering a few challenges. Then I came up with the idea (from a meme of course) that you'll see below.( Collapse )
So I hope you guys enjoyed that! It was fun on my end and I think it gave me the push I needed to try and make an update. I hope to update the community not just with icons but with a facelife in the next week or so. Here's hoping anyway.
Thanks for everything guys!
