I bet you thought I'd forgotten all about this place, huh? Well, not so fast. I've been playing with some coloring techniques and had some fun this afternoon. Tape brushes and famously overused abstract heart brush by the fabulous teh_indy.

Insomnia plus a heapload of gorgeous high-res photos courtesy of the fab teh_indy meant it was time for some graphics goodness. So if you're a fan of Bo Bice, enjoy!

Here's a preview of the wallpaper...

I made seven icons from the trailer for Sin City (which looks jaw-droppingly awesome, by the way). A lot of these aren't my usual fancy coloring and effects; they're definitely grittier and grungier. I also played with some unsual animation techniques.

Comment and credit, please, as always.

+3 animated (Dwight [Clive Owen], Becky [Alexis Bledel], Kevin [Elijah Wood])
+3 still (Yellow Bastard [Nick Stahl], Nancy [Jessica Alba], Goldie [Jaime King]
+1 minimovie (Miho [Devon Aoki])

Some icons made for clarksoncontest and claycontest. These are all old, so the quality of some of them is not up to par. Consider this a housecleaning post.

All right. Here's how it's going to work.

1) Post your request in a comment to this post. Let me know what you want--an icon, a wallpaper, a blend, a banner, a divbox layout, etc.--and what you want it of.
Also give me statistics. Still or animated? Any specific text, colors, effects? If you want a certain image(s) to be used, please provide links to them. If you'd like a minimovie, remember I can only make minimovies out of Quicktime (.mov) and RealPlayer (.rm) files; I can't make them out of Windows Media files. My apologies.
Here's an example of a request:
"I'd really like an icon of Thomas Haden Church in Sideways. Could you please have it say 'Are you chewing gum?' and use one or two of the images? I've given the links below. Thanks!'

2) If you are requesting a wallpaper, banner, blend, or divbox layout, all the rules in #1 apply, plus you must give me dimensions of the image, or at least an idea of them. Such as, for a blend, you can say, "It needs to be 500x300 or smaller."

3) I make divbox layouts--to get an idea, look at my regular journal over at staplerinjelle. For a layout, the more specifics, the better, and not just regarding images and text. What browser do you want it to work in? (I have IE, Safari, and Mozilla Firefox, so I can test in all of them.) What resolution should it be viewable at--800x600 and above, 1024x768 and above? Layouts will take me longer to do since I have to test the coding and then send it all together with an explanatory file.

Well, let's see how this experiment turns out. Have at it.
