Yeah. Fullmetal Alchemist and Radiohead decided to EAT MY BRAIN SIMULTANEOUSLY. And lo, there was iconage. They're experimental. As in, I tried imitating other people's styles.

I'm not dead or anything. Just in case anyone was wondering.

I've been busy with school and writing. Both of which took lots of time away from iconing. I will be making some when my schedule clears up.

Blur, Radiohead [12 Aug 2004|05:08pm]
After these, I'm going to be working on an American Pie songset, simply because I love that song a lot. I don't know how large it's going to be or how long it's going to take, but it might be a while until I update again. Just as a warning.

He's not the messiah. Really. [10 Aug 2004|03:42pm]
After having the username thedeadparrot for way too long, I feel bad about having not made that many Monty Python. Hopefully, this will help remedy this problem. They're not great, but they're Monty Python, which should count for something.

24.See? It does have a happy ending. 16.Tiny text! Pseudo deep legible text! 19.Hehehehehe.

TUTORIAL: Using OptiPNG [03 Aug 2004|04:48pm]
This is primarily for iconmakers who use PNGs.

Photoshop is bad at optimizing PNGs. Trust me when I say this.

OptiPNG - it's a free optimization tool that losslessly compresses the size of PNG files. It's main downfall is that it's techy (command line based and on Macs, you have to compile the source code yourself). Otherwise, it can take up to 30% off your filesizes, which would help with bandwidth problems and download times.

A tutorial for WindowsCollapse )
I'll try to figure out the best way to compile the source code for Macs later.

Comments, questions, suggestions, screaming cries for help are all welcome.
