Not an icon post this time.

Hey, loves.

So I was considering a change on the community, mostly in layout and I decided to look for some and I saw several under the "Style Contest" theme that I really liked, particularly the one titled "magic paper", I believe?

Anyhow, it told me to upgrade to a Plus in order to use the theme, but uhh.. if that's the one that shows ads, I'm not a fan of that. So I'm wondering if any of you have a paid account, can you still use all the themes or is that a plus-account theme only? If I can get the layout with the paid account, that would be fine with me. :D

*edit* Also, in 6 days, KI will be 4 years old. :)

Update on my whereabouts

Hey, guys. No, I didn't forget the recent challenge I put up. I've just been hit with a lot of work recently. (Professors decide "hey, we were going too slow, now lets move way too fast" close to the end of the semester.) And I have finals coming up. They're in the works so don't think I've forgotten about you. :D

Anyone who hasn't commented to the post yet, can do so as I haven't closed it or anything. After the 22nd, my last final, I'll throw myself head-on into icon-making after getting drunk. ;D

Icon challenges

Seeing as I'm trying to build up my iconing skills again, I decided I'm going to throw out an entry on ideas for icon challenges. No, this isn't like my other GIMME-YOUR-IDEAS post. This will be one in which I will making ten icons of certain challenges you comment with.

Now, considering I'm still in school, it's April and my finals have YET to arrive but they will, I won't be able to get to all of them at once, but I'll do my best.

Other designers, you're more than welcome to nab some and make them yourself!

As far as ideas go, since there's tons of people on this community, let's not go overboard with ideas otherwise, I'll be making icons for the next 10 years. ;D Two or three ideas per person sounds about good.
- General subjects like "books", "pink stuff", "candles" is nice.
- Abstract ideas like "proverbs", "favorite movies", "random stuff you keep around the house", "humor" is also very nice and would probably be a slightly bigger challenge than one above.
- Specifics like "rabbit eating carrots while standing on its hind legs" or anything else.. err, let's steer clear from that, kay?

:D Happy commenting!

Back-linked entry: Christmas bases

You know what really sucks about having finals week end on the 23rd? The chance that you might have tests on that last day.

... I have two. :\

So I haven't really had the chance to make Christmas icons, but there's always the Christmas tag to help out in that department. Here's a huge set of about 700-something icons that I made last year for you all to enjoy. The cut is obviously fake.

Autumn leaves

I've started to make icons without borders, as you can see, just to see how much attention they get from people, compared to the one-pixel borders. I like them, though I've always been fond of borders. What do you all think?

In the meantime, here's another base set revolving around leaves of autumn. Comment with specifics, credit optional, you know the drill. :)

Halloween bases

Despite the fact that I've made Halloween bases in the past before, I decided to do another set. This time, I'm experimenting with borderless icons and trying to figure out if more people prefer it with or without a border.

If any of these appeal to you and you would like a border on them, you're always free to let me know which one, unless you feel you can do it yourself. :)

Comment with specifics, credit not necessary, share and have fun!
