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'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.

Icons: Sentimental Garden Lover [gift 2/2]

^ HAR HAR. I'M SORRY, I SUCK, YOU MAY KILL ME NOW. .·´¯`(>▂<)´¯`·.
I thought I was going to have this done by Christmas, but that obviously didn't happen >_< I'm going to blame tagging, some school work, the sheer # of icons (35) and all-around laziness for this. But mostly laziness.
Warning: some boy-boy kissing below <3

I didn't color icons 1, 14-16, 25-28. I just added effects to them.

Icons: Koi to Karada wa Senaka kara [yaoi]

More icons from a quite steamy series I re-read recently. Yeah, I pretty much abandoned the manga challenge (at least until July) and just re-read all the good ones I have saved <3 Anyway, I made this while re-reading the manga itself; I initially wanted to wait a bit until I finished re-reading all of it, but the last story is way too confusing and boring so I'm not re-reading it again ^^"

Credits: one circle pattern by me, bokeh made with default PS brushes, everything else is coloring and color manipulation~

Icons: Kimi ga Koi ni Ochiru [smexy yaoi luv-luv]

Just posting to show I'm not dead! :D Couldn't resist making these when reading moar Hinako Takanaga to write synopses for MT. Next: Kimi ga Koi ni Oboreru! Enjoy~

P.S. I know I owe someone a tutorial about coloring manga scans and I promise I'm slowly working on it~ ^-^

P.P.S. FFS THEO Y U NO HAVE CUSTOMIZABLE WORLD THEMES. I CANNOT COLOR-COORDINATE. THE WALLS. IT DRIVES ME UP THEM. *cries and pokes everyone's eyes out with neon colors*

Icons: Ai no Kotoba mo Shiranaide etc. [shounen-ai]

Woohoo, I'm on a roll! Figured I might as well ride the creative wave while it's here, so I bring you 10 more icons from two manga series I highly recommend, Konna Otoko wa Aisareru and Ai no Kotoba mo Shiranaide (and also their sequel, Himitsu no Yoasobi). Very cute yaoi series.

1-5: Ai no Kotoba mo Shiranaide (variations for #3)
6-10: Konna Otoko wa Aisareru (one more icon)

I've learned that manga icons look 100x better when I don't add shadows *facepalm* And that I should back up my patterns before installing a new version of PS *double facepalm*

Icons: Naono Bohra, Wild Fangs [mild yaoi!]

I'm going to put warnings in the titles of my posts from now on, so people who dislike yaoi or whatever else is more risky, can ignore the icons ^^ No, really, I don't mind if you don't view them or comment on them if the subject makes you uncomfortable.
Ah, I really need to stop procrastinating. Fortunately, today's exam wasn't that difficult, so I could afford to cut the study time a bit and make some icons (don't worry, I did read everything, I just spent less time on it ^_~)
