I have decided to go on and close this journal. I created a community to post my graphics to, so I won't have to switch between this and my dojie account. The community is peaz_inc. Feel free to join me there. I'm going to be joining the communities I am a part of on this journal with my regular one. Sorry if this causes any confusion.

I will still be working on contest entries, but my life is doing something weird just now and I know I won't have time to update with graphics much. I won't be gone long, but I didn't want you all to think I'd forgotten about you.
See you in a couple weeks or so.

if you need a quick fix:

Community Plug [19 Sep 2004|09:51am]
rockchicks is in dire need of members to enter their contests. Every week they give us two hot rock chicks to make icons of. What more could you want? Current challenge ends 09/24 and features D'Arcy from Smashing Pumkins and Sarah McLachlan.

graphiclyyours is a place to share your icons and enter contests... the current icon challenge them is, well, telling someone to fuck off. LOL. That one ends 09/24 also.

icon_tutorial: Ever see an icon and wish you knew how they did it? You can probably find a tutorial for it here.

fontaddicts can help identify fonts for you, but check their Community Resource Pages first for the most popular fonts.

100x100_brushes is a place to get fantastic Photoshop/Paint Shop Pro icon sized brushes.

And, if you use Greatest Journal and want to enter some cool contests, my community Factory Direct is always looking for new members. Right now we have six open contests: a celebrity challenge, our regular icon contest, a regular friends only banner contest, a regular wallpaper contest and right now we're running a colorbar contest. So head over there if you have a GJ:

Here's the addy:

Pro Kerry Banners [24 Aug 2004|11:19am]
I figured there might be at least a couple Kerry supporters out here who might want a neat little banner for their user info. So I made some. Most of these are snagged from bumper sticker sites, the last three I actually made myself. If you've got a friend that wants one, by all means send them here.

Feel free to use these with our without credit. Just comment if you are taking any.
don't click if you just want to argueCollapse )

Public Service Announcement [11 Aug 2004|02:48pm]
If you have a GreatestJournal and you want to request graphics (from me or one of four other makers) or if you'd like to enter or vote on one of our five regular graphics challenges a week, head over to Factory Direct. the graphics challenges run from Wednesday to Monday, except for the 24 hour challange - a new one of those starts every day. We've got a good bunch of people there and we have a lot of fun, and we're always looking for new members. Most of the community posts are friends only, so make sure to join, don't just add the community to your friends list.

Making And Using Using Animated Frames + Brush Bases [21 Jun 2004|08:05pm]

(If the images on this tutorial stop working, please comment to let me know.
I'll eventually put the whole thing on my
icon website
, but I'm kind of short on time today.)

I've been asked by several people in the last week how exactly the animated
bases that I've shared can be used. Well, here is how I make and use them.

If you follow me, we'll turn this
and this into this

Forgive me that they're not Rembrandt quality, but I'm at work. We're using
the G because my name is Georgie and I don't have any image files on this machine.
But you don't care, right? Feel free to save any or all of these images to use
to follow the tutorial.

I'm going to assume for this tutorial that you already know how to make
the G picture, a transparent gif
. If you do not, I'm sure someone here can
help you. Leave a comment here if you need me to help, but it might be a while
till I get back to you. I also switch programs a lot, I make all of my graphics
in Photoshop but all my animations in Animation Shop. I'll include how to put
your pictures into the animations in Image Ready as well, however. I think.
I hope. You can also skip to any part of the tutorial that you want to.
