41 Icons, 2 FO Banners, 1 Wallpaper, 1 Header, 2 Userinfo Banners [01 Sep 2006|08:15am]
[ mood | busy ]

Most of these were done back in March. I've not really had time to do anything else since I have been preparing for/started back into college. I even took a little bit of an internet hiatus there for a bit. We'll see if I can get back into things.

Check out these two links for information on a developing manga and a new webcomic (that moves slowly).

-- Cryptic Vision delphian_dream
-- Sanguem Deus sanguem_deus

I do take requests though last couple of times things have come up and I've not been able to get to all of them. But I'll continue to try if my college doesn't get in the way. D8 Request Here.

And now for the graphics~

Requests [15 Mar 2006|08:01pm]
[ mood | chipper ]

If you would like to make a request for an icon, FO Banner, Personal Banner for your userinfo, or a color bar please leave the request here. I will only work with the fandoms mentioned in the list below. Sorry, I lose heart when I work with fandoms I'm not interested in. ^^" Please, no yaoi or yuri. Most of those end up breaking my brain.

I can also make personal icons. Like ones of yourself, pets, and family if you want to request something like that. I also work with scenery and plain text icons.

I'm sorry but I can't take fanart requests any more unless you are requesting from my own art. There is too much drama behind them that I have not the nerves to deal with. It's best to just leave them alone. ^_^

Be specific in your resquest and use the following form...

Your LJ ID:
Anything else?:

So get to requesting on this post and then be looking for your request to appear in the next icon post. ^_^

Specific ListCollapse )

Hot Linking [05 Aug 2005|10:27am]
[ mood | rushed ]

I have a sneaking suspicion that someone out there is hotlinking my icons/wallpapers/fo banners/ or colorbars. This doesn't make me happy. It makes me very sad. Because when you do not save the images to your own server and use my links it makes it where I can't post anymore icons for you to see. So please, please, PLEASE... as said in the userinfo rules, I cannot emphasize this enough, do NOT hotlink. If you need to know how to get a Photobucket account let me know and I will GLADLY help you. If you have ANY questions feel free to ask. Don't worry, I don't bite. =P

Thank you,

Icon Tutorials [02 Aug 2005|11:43am]
[ mood | good ]

Hmmm, I'm in a rather good mood as of late and I was wondering if anyone would like a lesson in icon making? I think I'd like to make some tutorials. Of course, you need to let me know which of my icons you'd like to learn how to replicate and I'll come up with tutorials. I feel everyone should know the joys of making icons.

Also, I only use Photoshop and ImageReady to make my icons, so if you use something else. I won't be able to help cause these are the only ones I know how to use. Teehee. =P

So, what would you all like to see?

The Hiatus has finally ended and in celebration, here are a ton of icons I've made for everyone.

Hopefully this computer won't decide to crash. ^_^ Please be specific with what you want in your requests. It makes things easier for me. And without further ado... the icon flood...

Hiatus [14 Jul 2005|02:10pm]
[ mood | tired ]

Sorry folks, venus_icons is going on a tiny hiatus. But I will be back as soon as I can get all this crap on this computer situated. My laptop that had all my stuff on it is permanently out of commission. So I'm having to adjust the desktop to my likings so I can get back to work.

This shouldn't last too long and I'll be able to finish what has been requested. =D And afterwards hopefully take on more requests ^_^


In the mean time be sure to check out the following communities I moderate and maybe even check me out and consider friending. ^_^

touched_venus <- me, duh XD
wickedalbel <- a shrine to Albel the Wicked
narutoicons <- a naruto icon community (looking for devoted members)
narutosmex <- a community for those who love the men/boys of Naruto
orochi_tsuna <- a shrine to the crack pairing of Orochimaru and Tsunade

A New Community [30 Jun 2005|10:44pm]
[ mood | hungry ]

For all those who want a bit more freedom with their Naruto Icons please join my new Naruto Community called narutoicons. It doesn't have a layout yet but there will be one eventually. For now just come on over and start posting your beautiful works! Please read the rules though. They are very lenient but I think they are important enough and allow a fairer freedom.

I'm working hard on your requests! But I just got a job so the rate at which they come has slowed down even more and I've had to stop taking requests for now. If you've already asked you're fine. But no more requests until I can afford to without taking forever and dying from exhaustion. ^_^

LOVE!! Thank you guys for stopping in.

[ mood | complacent ]

Due to a difference of opinions, I have left the Naruto Icons community. I will however continue to post and credit to the best of my ability icons and the like here. If you like my icons (and you know you do XD) and would like to continue requesting them or other spiffy things, come see me here! You can add myself or this journal to your friends list and I'll even add you back. I love doing things for people and I love taking requests. I'm glad I have taken this step. I feel a lot better now like I just pulled a boulder off of my chest. =P I love you all dearly and I love that you seem to love the work I do with repairing, creating, etc of icons and other materials.

Please enjoy your visits ^_^

And just as a little joke between me and a special person in my life, I give him all the credit for helping me put together this post. He has a wonderful way with words and I love him dearly. If you use any of the words in this post please CREDIT me and fiasro =P
