Welcome to buddha_! Celine (littleasianpixi) used to dump her icons in her personal journal, but now she dumps them here. Feel free to join and/or friend the community.
Icons made here can vary from anything to everything. In the past I've made HP, comics, LotR, actors and actresses, and movies. Requests are not available, but I will gladly take any suggestions. Please do not alter my icons in anyway, and do not claim them as your own.
If you nominate any icons please let me know, and please upload them to your own server.
The Icon Archives
Everyone knows that not crediting an icon-maker is bad karma. Not only does it come back to bite you in the patootie, but it also causes icon-makers to want to fry said patootie. To use any of the icons, both here at buddha_ and at littleasianpixi, you are required to credit me in your keywords. The tutorial for keyword crediting is [HERE]. Credit to either journal is fine, just remember that buddha_ has an underscore at the end.
Please do not archive my icons anywhere without my express permission and proof of it. Also, do not hotlink/steal bandwidth from my site where old icons are stored or from my Photobucket account. Don't claim my icons as your own. Don't copy my iconning style. While some may consider imitation a form of flattery, I frankly don't. I do consider that inspiration is different from mere copying. Put a spin on it, make an artistic contribution to the community, and no one will think less of you.
All in all, be a responsible LJ and real life person :D
How do I make my icons? By using Photoshop 5.0 and a plethora of brushes and fonts. Here is a compilation of materials and tips for your enjoyment:
