hiatus... still.

Hellooo! So I'm trying to make a comeback and post some more graphics. But before I make any new posts, I plan on fixing all the old entries in here where the links have died. (Long story short, I was using a friends' domain, he's in the army and had tons of other things on his mind and forgot to renew it.) But I was curious if anyone cared for me to re-upload any of the dead links in my Screencap Log? My old computer died so I don't have access to lots of the stuff any longer, but I could upload most of A:tLA, W.I.T.C.H., and Eureka SeveN.

And does anyone use my Screencap Gallery? I'm thinking of just deleting it if not. :)

Oh, also! If you're into Avatar: The Last Airbender and enjoy making graphics/writing fanfics/etc, join atlaland! It's a fun contest community where you get sorted into the different nations from the show (Fire Nation, Air Nomads, Earth Kingdom, Water Tribe) and compete in contests. It's actually really fun. You can read more about it here.

hiatus.

In case me not posting in basically a year and a half wasn't enough of a hint, this place has been on hiatus for awhile now. Not by choice -- I kinda lost the graphic groove for a month or three, then moved in with The Boyfriend and we had zero internet access until recently. Now I have net access, just a crappy laptop not suited for graphics programs. I plan to be getting an external hard drive sometime in the next month or two, so once I have that set up I will definitely start posting again in here.

And yes guys, I'm aware most of the links in this journal are no longer working. At the moment, I can't do anything about it. The person who was hosting my stuff before I got a domain deleted all my icons/mood themes without warning, and the computer with all those files on it is at my Dad's house. Again, once I get the external hard drive, all that stuff will be back up ASAP.

Sorry for any inconvenience, dudes. :/

+ Comment if you take anything.
+ Textless icons are not bases.
+ Credit whoresque, NOT bentfire in the keywords.
+ Drug and sexual references as well as cussing are under the cut, so if that offends you, don't look. Also, one icon is a spoiler for 3x07 - "The Runaway".
+ This post contains three icons each from all episodes of Book Two.

This is a companion post to the Book One icon set I made way back in Nov. '06. In that post I mentioned I planned on doing the same thing for season two, perhaps "riiight before Book Three starts up." Um. Yeah. I failed that, hardcore. XD I'm only late by about six months, but who's counting?

And this post took fooooorever, holy shit. I think I did the first one back in December, and I just finished 'em tonight. I really spent a lot of time on these, like a minimum of 30minutes per icon. Plus I tried really hard to work on my text use, I originally wanted to one text icon for every episode, but obviously I failed at that. (I was close, though! 19/60 is nearly 1/3, so I wasn't too off, really.) Overall though, I think this is my favorite batch ever. There's a few I can't stand (40, 41 + 56 make me cringe), but I'm pretty proud of this set.

If anyone wants the textless versions, or ones without the funky backgrounds (like in this one), let me know and I'll upload 'em.

And finally: I have a shiny new userinfo. :D I hadn't updated it since '05, so that thing was in desperate need of a make-over.

Making this post taught me two things: a) never do request posts again (I fail massively at doing them in a timely manner) and b) never make icons of real people (again, I fail massively). And speaking of the request icons, I know not everyone who requested an icon got one in this post and I'm sorry. The computer that I had most of my graphics on died recently and with it went a lot of the finished icons. But I'll re-do 'em soon and e-mail them to you or something, kay? Sorry, again.

And two more things: new layout! It's of Bethany Joy Lenz (I refuse to acknowledge that she is married and has thus changed her last name, damnit) using lyrics from her song "The Loneliness Is Better Near Now".




Aaand secondly! I finally got around to getting my own domain, Violent Red. I've also got a gallery hosted on there, so now you can download my screencaps via zip files or individually at the gallery. :D So far I've got all of Avatar: The Last Airbender (including DVD caps of the end of season two, plus 3x01-3x05 with 3x06-3x10 coming soon - I got my DVD set yesterday so I'll work on it the next couple days), Eureka seveN, W.I.T.C.H., and season five of One Tree Hill. I haven't updated my Screencap Log yet because I'm planning to go through and delete a lot of it. So, is there anything on there you guys would like to see uploaded to the gallery? The only thing I refuse to do is seasons one/two/three/four of One Tree Hill. DVD caps are out for those, so mine aren't considered good quality anymore. But other than that, I'll consider uploading anything else.

If anyone has any suggestions/ideas for more Christmas icons, let me know and I'll make 'em. :D

Request icons WILL be in the next post, I swear. I have most of them done, just... I don't like sticking them onto completely irrelevant entries. But I've held off for so long on posting them that I'll just have to kick my OCD to the curb next post and suck it up.

Annnd even though I fail at maintaining this "game" and keeping track of the numbers/comments, let's try it again: if anyone can correctly guess the first icon I made from this batch, I'll make an icon or two for you. (Lousy prize I know, but this is just for fun.) Except this time there's a time limit - 24 hours from when I made this post, aka 3pm EST. If two or more people guess the same number and it turns out to be correct, I'll still fill all your requests.

EDIT 12/19: Haha, so, even giving myself a time limit doesn't make me stay on top of things! I am so punctual. :D But you guys, nobody got it right! I feel so bad. #2 was the first one I made. D: hollywoodism you were SO CLOSE.

Thanks for all the comments, dudes. ♥ Methinks you guys are far too nice to me.
hama // but she was stolen

i can has new layout?

No, you do not need to adjust your monitor, I do have a spiffy new layout! The old one was... well, old. Plus, this one features fanart by rufftoon, so how can it possibly be bad? :D



And I have nothing new to report other than that, most unfortunately. I will have those requests done soonish, I swear, and I've got some A:tLA icons from 3x07-3x09 that I should be finishing up, plus I've done a couple Fullmetal Alchemist ones I really like, and because I went a whole 1/3rd of a sentence without referencing A:tLA I have to swing back over to that fandom and mention that I'm working on a Jet/Azula fanmix. And! Even though I haven't touched it in months, I WILL try my damndest to get my 'Girls of Avatar' mood theme finished up - I'm hoping for a pre-2008 posting date, but we'll see.

I'm done hogging up your flist now, so toodles!

PS. How awesome were those latest A:tLA episodes?! Okay, now I'm done hogging up your flist. :P

The request icons are mostly done! I was actually gonna post them in this entry, but then there would've been about 100 icons... so, no thanks. Next time, for sure. :D

If anyone decides to use the fanart icons, please, please, please credit the original artist. If you have enough room in the keywords/comments to credit me as well that'd be nice, but definitely credit the artist first!

Just curious here, but: since the UK is getting episodes 6-10 early, am I the only US-er who's not planning to watch 'em? I'm so terrified I'm gonna get accidently spoiled and the season is gonna get ruined for me, though. :/

EDIT: And because I am le bored, if anyone can correctly guess the number of icons from this batch I just made today, I'll um.. make you an icon? or three? Since I just had a requests post open it's not really much of a "prize", but oh well. Here's a hint: it's more than half. (In my defense, my car broke down so I couldn't get to work today, and I had nothing to do from 10am until now... yes, I know, I am so very lame.)

EDIT #2: Mmkay, so the numbers guessed so far are 43, 36 and 63, none of which are correct. I'm (hopefully) going to work tomorrow so I won't be around to check comments and see if anyone "wins" until tomorrow night around 9pm EST, so in case multiple people guess the same correct number, you all "win", okay? G'night guys, and thanks for all the nice comments. ♥

I will get to those request icons soon, I swear. Sorry it's taking me so long, guys. :X

egads, I am bored. I have to be up in 3.5 hours to be at work (even though I just got off at 11pm, I have to go back in at 7am. JOY.) yet I am wide freaking awake. ...and I have no idea why I typed all that out, since this is my graphic place, not my personal journal, but oh well.

Also: #1-32 are old, I originally posted them at avatar_fans back in July (here's the original post, if anyone cares). A few of the icons were done as requests there. The rest I pretty much made the past couple days.

I haven't even started on the requests from the last post yet; sorry, guys. I've just had very little computer time lately and I've been uninspired. But hopefully tomorrow's new episode of Avatar (OMGYAY!) will trigger me back into the icon-makin' biz and I'll crank the requests out sometime soon.
