As it says in the subject, I'll be moving my icons to moegraphy.

This is a rather bad habit of mine, I know, but mintteaparty's just not doing it for me anymore.

Feel free to watch moegraphy if you'd like to keep seeing more of my work. I've been working on a batch (and just spent a couple of hours prettying up the new comm), so expect some new icons there soonish.

Ty, guys. ♥

1. Please comment if taking. Comments are loved and much appreciated.
2. Feel free to use these for graphics. Just please credit either mintteaparty or starkissed.

I apologize for the lack of updates! Here are some screencaps of the newest anime I'm watching, so hopefully that'll make up for things a bit.

Apologies in advance if some of the screencaps are a little odd (since it's my first thing doing something like this, VLC and I have a love-hate kind of thing going on rn). Don't worry if some files seem to be missing based on the file names - likely, the `missing` images are just ones that were deleted because they were either too blurry or duplicates of another image already in the file.

Also, I'm in the process of making icon bases from the One Piece manga (post time skip), so look forward to that!

Program: Adobe Photoshop CS4
Difficulty: Easy - medium. A general understanding of the different tools in Photoshop (such as Levels and Layers) would definitely help.

Iiiiiit's been a while hasn't it? Sorry I've been inactive lately, but let me try to make it up to everyone with a tutorial! (Albeit a... slightly old tutorial. /kind of forgot about it for a couple of months, um.)

This will be a general cleaning + coloring tutorial instead of an iconning tutorial since I typically like to resize my bases to 100x100 pixels first when iconning, which... might make things a lot more difficult if you're not used to it.

Hope I can explain this clearly, and feel free to ask questions in the comments! ♥ I just... can't promise I'll be able to answer them very well, ahahaha. |D

As you'll see later on, I like to use a lot of layers. I find that it's useful for keeping things organized and different layer effects in turn make your coloring differently. If you want to learn more about layer effects, please go see this wonderful tutorial by outou!

With this tutorial, I won't be going through how I color every single part (like the clothes, for example), but I will be going through the major parts, such as the skin, hair, eyes and some general tips. You can more or less figure out how to color the rest of the image from there.

i hope i don't screw this up ahahahaCollapse )
