Remember The Name//Fort Minor

I'm going to post the same ones I did for my mod application.


I've been doing graphics off and on for years but I got serious about it around November of 2005. I enjoy making icons; it's a nice break from thinking. I experiment with different types. Right now I'm really into colors and tints. Before I was into brushes and monochromatic. I'm inspired by other icon makers, and I like to take their work and put my own twist (but I always credit my inspirations).
I'll make icons of just about anything, as long as I can find pictures.

The other mods and I took a while thinking about this, but we've decided that, for now, we're going to have to say no.

We do however, think that you have some serious potential, and we would totally love it if you would re-apply once you get some more practice.

Some things to work on: removing the background completely, a wider range of colours.

Hope to see you reapply!
Good luck!

Yes one thing you need to work on is removing the backround compleatly. See the white line around Roger? If you zoom in a ton on the picture you are removing the backround from then you can see where the small white line is very well and remove ALL of the backround.

We really do see alot of potential and we would love to see you reaply once you have improved. Remember there is always room for improvement.

Pretty much what the rest of the mods said. I see some serious potential. I just think you should try working on the quality of your icons. Try to make sure they're not blurry or grainy.

Goodbye Love

Man, I keep messing this up. I'm sorry; I read the rules, I promise!

How long have you done graphics?

I've made my own icons the entire time I've been on LJ, but I just started sharing them in March. To be honest, I'm glad about that because my older icons kinda...sucked major butt.

Anything else:

Icon making is one of my favorite hobbies. It's my way of being artistic, and it's fun to pick up new tips and actually seeing yourself improve.

We've all agreed that your icons are very good, therefore, you've been accepted. =) I feel sometimes your coloring is a bit simple, but, that's the only thing I could see you working on. I really like the cropping/coloring in the Rosario one.

I Sing For You - Camp Soundtrack

When I joined, it didn't click that I was going to be rated. Eek.

Umm... but I'm still here anyway!

Here's my digits... err.. info:

Some recent icons + some other favorites:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Well those were quite random, weren't they?

Random facts about me: Well, I am a completely obsessed movie fan. I adore musicals so very much. I really like independent films. I am seeing Rent live for my first time, this August. I love my pets. I have 3 dogs and 3 cats. Buddy, Bob, & Pepsi. And Journey, Sightful, & Hotwheels.
Iconage Timeline: Well, I joined LJ a few years ago, and I was completely clueless about everything. Now, I've gotten a lot better at HTML and all that jazz. I'm no awesome-tastic genius at HTML or icons/graphics yet, but I do know more about them then most of the people I know (in the real-ish world.) But still, compared to the LJ world, I'm not the best. I believe, now as I am looking through my memory page on LJ, my first graphic post was... ehh... August 5th of last year. Woah, I thought I've been making them longer. Hmm. But, trust me... I have gotten better... I only had paint then. (http://gc4eva-89.livejournal.com/101843.html)
Anything else you want to tell us: Hmm. I love livejournal and making icons.

Re: I Sing For You - Camp Soundtrack

Ooh, when I said "click" at first, I meant "think". And I should have said that I am always confused, so it's okay that I'm being rated. I didn't mean to sound rude. =S

Re: I Sing For You - Camp Soundtrack

I'm a bit confused.
Should I have chose a Rent song as a title, instead? Did I do something wrong?

About moi: My name's Maddie, I'm 15 and live in Ontario, as for which city I live in... That's kinda complicated, we moved out of Kitchener so we basically live at the corner of no and where now. I've been making graphics for probably oh.... somewhere arond 4 or 5 months. Umm.. what else can I say, oh! My family has an alpaca farm! lol. So ya, it obviously goes without saying that I love RENT but I'm also very into Whedonverse stuff (Buffy/Angel/Firefly) as far as other musicals that I'm into: Spamalot, Into the Woods, Phantom, Les Mis. I should also probably let you guys know about my icon journal: 2morow4me_icons

Re: Christmas Bells

We see potential we really do. The first one is the best of the bunch. The only things you need to work on are coloring(spice it up a bit!),brushes(those are oh so fun and can ass just the right affect)sharpening and images quality(sharpen up the bases a bit it really brings out the icon. And the last one with Collins and Angel? You might want to duplicate the base and set it to screen,mess around with the settings on the layers and have fun. Try stuff mess arround with everything. You will be surprised.) =)
Also paint shop pro is a very easy program to use and they have a free trial download at the site. Its amazing what a change in program can do as well.
Your off to a great start and we would love it you re-applyed once you have improved. You may re-apply when you think you have improved we set no time limit or anything like that so take your time have fun and mess around!

One tiny thing I forgot,try getting fonts from dafont.com they have some wicked fonts that can really bring out your icons. If you don't know how to install fonts I would be happy to tell you. =)

How long have you done graphics?

Well, I recieved my graphics program last year on my birthday (July 23rd) but before I had the proper equipment I used an el-cheapo program for a few months.

About me:

Over the year that I have experimented with my program I have improved greatly. I play with an array of different effects. I love to read tutorials and learn from them. I enjoy, a bit too much some would say, making icons and other various graphics. I don't showcase my icons on LJ but I don't mind if individuals use them.

*If animations aren't allowed just don't count it. Sorry I didn't ask first.

Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol




My name is Alison and I'm 21 years old. My loves include (but are not limited to) Rent, Harry Potter, Wicked, Grey's Anatomy, Firefly, Buffy, Big Brother, and Brokeback Mountain.
I've been doing graphics for a couple of years, on and off. I recently got into it again after a dry spell of a few months. Like everyone, I was pretty terrible when I first started, and there's definitely still room to grow, but at least there has been some improvement.
Please, if you have any advice, I'd love the constructive criticism!

tell us about yourself.

Hm, well, name's Lea, I've been making icons for a few years now. I've been in commercial art for three years, so larger advertisments are more what I do, but icons are fun just the same! I use Jasc PaintShopPro at home, and my school offers Adobe, which I love. I have an icon community, _greatbigstuff. There you can find not only my icons, but a lot of my digital work. So, yeah. I think that's just about it.

Aw...I lose, I already answered that, lol.
do you mod any comms?
Just my own.
