Want to see EVEN MORE of my crap?
Visit the Corner of Art, of course!
In its early days, this World used to be all about smart discussions and posts and stuff like that. But since I hardly write articles now because of the lack of time, this World is now a place dedicated to showcasing whatever I do that doesn't relate to blogging about my life (which is already covered in this World). So, in a nutshell, this place is for graphics and resources.
Browse (most of) my stuff here by tags:
I take icon requests, so PM me or write me a comment :3 And feel free to use the stuff I make: you don't need to credit me if you use icons, but I'd appreciate some credit for the rest.

It's 2 a.m. and I've had an energizer and I've got classes tomorrow and I can't sleep.
I am ded. I think I've used up all my vectoring fuel for a while, I dunno how the hell I managed to finish this in one day >_< Anyway, you know me, I always take the long way around; originally I offered to only extract this image, but I ended up saying "to hell with it" and vectored it. I am NOT doing the wings, I'm ded.

Stitched together these two scans: one, two. Coat front reference from here. Skin tone reference from here.
Close-up of his eyes: click.
And if you're wondering, 6700 x 14200 really is the original resolution I vectored this in.
In other news, the new Achievements section (on the right of the page) of MT really cracks me up. I am now aiming for maximum attention whore level. Yanno, just for kicks (as if I would ever be that popular, I'm antisocial by definition XD).
Notice the plural in the title :D I also revamped the vectors section, redid all the thumbnails to showcase the vectors better because the old ones were fugly, dammit! And yay, three more
unplanned projects down! The next ones will probably be girly vectors since I'm trying to tidy up my folders and have discovered a crapload of girl vectors :|
Note: I love the third vector, I'm in love with it <3 And if you like yaoi, I'd recommend the manga as well, it's very cute and funny 8D source image
Note: I've been listening to more E Nomine these days, 'cause they're epic.
Used: here, here, here, here and here.
You get inverted variations because sometimes you just want to use white text instead of the usual black :3 I should say that they're not simply inverted (like the MS Paint kind of inversion), but manually switched to white-and-black.
Note: while they may look jagged here, the textures look good on icons (with a Multiply or Screen blending mode).
Enjoy and, as usual, please credit me if you use them.
Text used is from here (surprising, ain't it? 8D)
