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.

If you know of any other worlds with icons/graphics, drop me a line and I'll feature them~

Icon preview templates: 5x2, 5x4 and more!

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 :)

10 small patterns!

Today I made a few cute, small patterns for use in icons, sort of like this:

I can't help it and am aware I'm lazy, but simple, cute icon backgrounds are my weakness >___<" I just love to fill the background with circles/hearts/whatever and overlay a pastel color on them <3
Most of the patterns in this set are very small and are meant to be more of a detail than a centerpiece; your eyes will hurt if you use them in huge stuff like wallpapers in strong colors. Had to make a conscious effort not to work on 12x15px documents for the big hearts XD Enjoy <3
Aww Ren is so cute, I wanna hug him >____<

Edit: to install them, open Photoshop and select the Fill Tool (Pattern option). Click on the arrow next to the current pattern, then on the arrow on the right of the new window. Select Load Patterns and you're done :)

Icon bases: Beast Master and Prince [283]

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 ...

3 icon texture sets: snow x2, light waves

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:

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.

Making icons: what to keep in mind

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...
