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.

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. If you'd like to see the other things I make, check out my Corner of Art.

Important News, Landmarks and Events of TheO [last update: 27th of October, 2012]
I took the time to browse through the news archives and selected the most important ones, from the point of view of a newbie to this site ^_^ If you have questions, hope some are answered here; if not, you can ask me directly. I've decided to dedicate an entire post to this, since it was a very long list. You can browse the site-related news by year by clicking this link.
Background pattern: Easter Greetings by joyseline.
Just thought I'd share some of the templates I use when making icon previews. I have a few saved because making one each time would be a waste of time XP
You are dowloading:
- a 5x2 (10) icon template, 540 x 225 px -> example
- a 5x4 (20) icon template, 540 x 435 px -> example
- a 5x5 (25) icon template, 540 x 540 px -> example
- a 6x7 (42) icon template, 620 x 722 px -> example
All are in both PNG and PSD formats. None have the dotted pattern in the background.
Note that the maximum width is 620 px; any more than that and the image is automatically resized (and the icons become blurred). The PSD versions have a text layer specifying the space between the icons, and between the icons and the border, so you can make whatever variation you want :)

Yup, you read that right: 283 icon bases made from scans on Minitokyo! I found another series that I liked the art of, so I made another batch of icon bases~ There are around ...

Hey everyone! It finally snowed this winter (yay!) and not only that, but it's been snowing for 2-3 days now! I was ecstatic when I saw it but it didn't turn out to be so fun when I nearly missed an exam because of the traffic jams >.< Seriously, the whole city goes to hell whenever it rains or, God forbid, snows.
Anyway, I made some more icon texture sets! Rules are the usual, credit if you use them and drop me a line if you feel like it 'cause I like to see my work being used c:
48 textures | 100 X 100 | 629 KB | .RAR file | Download
71 textures | 100 X 100 | 962 KB | .RAR file | Download | Part 1 is here
29 textures | 100 X 100 | 377 KB | .RAR file | Download
I also took an accidental trip down memory lane after stumbling upon Marilyn Manson's video Mobscene, which came out in 2003. Jesus, I feel so old. And then I found Creature Feature's The Greatest Show Unearthed and I can't get it out of my head. Not that I want to, anyway.
After the not-so-professional and extremely short survey a while ago, the people have decided they want more icon-related stuff from me. [/cocky] I was happy to oblige since this guide/tutorial/whatever you want to call it was already in the works...
