Don't miss out on this great chance to participate in a non-elimination challenge. If it's possible to get any better than that, it's also all about CLAMP... need I say more?

Prepare to be amazed! This is the first Inspire Me post on my journal, and it's going to be a good one, with twenty bright and beautiful icons that will make you want to amp up the hues in your next batch of icons.

my eyes can't take it all inCollapse )

anime20in20 is celebrating it's 4th anniversary! I am so excited to see the community back in action... even if it's just for a short time. I would highly suggest checking out the other amazing sets that the other participants pulled together too, as part of the celebration!

Hover over the icon for the series if you're curious.

fill me up againCollapse )

I haven't been very active on LJ for awhile. Just barely enough to keep calendarsquares floating, but beyond that it's been scraping together a few meager icons for the couple of small challenges I've tried signing up for.

But I have been hoarding icons just as greedily as I did before... which means I have too many. I had the good sense to organize them somewhat as I saved them. I have folders of the following:

Animanga, Comics, & Games (2402)
Disney (272)
Stock (589)
TV/Movies & The Rest (1735)

This epic collection isn't even the start of it, since these are just the icons I haven't sorted and incorporated into the REST of my collections.

Sadly, I can't do much with a lot of these. They sit around and hope that calendarsquares will need them later. With all of the awards communities dead these days, and with me having no time to copy/paste links anyway, it seems like this epic collection is for nothing.

And it hit me. I'm going to share batches of icons that I save in the form of inspiration posts! (duh, right?).

The posts will have a common theme and will probably contain 15-20 icons that demonstrate a fantastic use of that theme. But in return, I want everyone to share inspiring icons with me that fit the category! So it's not exactly like an awards comm, but beautiful icons and amazing makers will be getting lots(?) of attention and hopefully it will be inspiring to more than just me XD

Stay tuned... I'll be putting up the first batch: Inspire Me with Vibrant Colors sometime in the near future!

Even though I've been way too busy to do anything, I've signed up for a bunch of stuff anyway... because I've decided that if I sign up, I might just be able to squeeze the time in to icon from the sheer guilt of missing deadlines XD

Check it out, maybe I'll see you there too?


Round 51: Themes | Sign Ups


Color Palette of the Month: See the Calendar!


Round 05: Disney Films (currently in progress)

We'll see how everything goes... but wish me luck and/or join in on the fun!

Some strange things happened in the course of my making this set... which resulted in it being late, and left halfway-finished and almost abandoned. But with the help of a surprise day off, and a spurt of creative energy, I decided to finish it off.

Sadly, 20disney20 has been put on hiatus, but if anyone is interested in a Disney 20in20 community, a new community called disneykrumkakes has recently opened~

I was so excited to make Hotarubi no Mori e icons for am_rumble's second Mini Round... I'm just glad I was able to finish in time though. RL has been really packed for me lately XD

Although some of the themes were difficult, I enjoyed trying to interpret the themes to fit Hotarubi no Mori e, which is perhaps the sweetest little oneshot/short movie ever. Since I have screencaps of the series now, I just can't stop making icons for it :3

I couldn't wait for summer to come againCollapse )
