I did a poll over on LJ last week (I can't do polls here on the free account) about what I should use as my icon there (where I have lots of spare icon space) for talking about sweet stuff. The winner was "chocolate mousse," but there was enthusiasm for a wide ranges of delectables. So i ended up doing icons for just about everything that got a vote. And here they are, free for the taking!

A wine glass full of raspberries and sabayon sauce, with the caption Delicious     a chocolate cupcake with chocolate icing, in a fancy paper     a chocolate eclair on a white plate, with the caption Temptation     A napoleon or millefeuille pastry, on a plate with a fork nearby
 
a pot of chocolate mousse, with a dab of whipped cream and chocolate shavings on top     a dish of chocolate mousse, with one spoonful removed and set down in the foreground, and several raspberries scattered nearby     A pannacotta with caramel drizzle and sliced strawberries, with two little heart shapes     a loaf of pumpkin bread with several slices cut from it and a heart shape

Please don't hotlink to my icon dump site and please credit. The sources I can remember are: berries and sabayon, The Examiner (Australia), chocolate cupcake, Freakgirl on Flickr, eclair from Randommealoftheday, the mousse with the raspberries from The Age online, the panna cotta from Muy Yum on Flickr, and the pumpkin bread from the site Freecoconutrecipes. The other mousse and the napoleon, I forgot to keep the site info. :-(

After consultation with my wise friends:

I have put up icons or icons plus banners.

opalmatrix has put up fanfiction.

chomiji: Gojyo from the manga Saiyuki, with the heart and letter K from the King of hearts in a deck of cards (Gojyo - hearts)

Several people have noted on their journals that it's More Joy Day.

"I’m proposing that on Thursday, January 13, 2011, we each engage in one act, either here on or outside of LJ, which brings joy to another person, in the hopes that that person will spread that joy further, and exponentially onward." - sdwolfpup

I'm still owing people flashfics from last time I offered, so this joy will be icons instead.

First five people to comment each get a shiny new icon. Let me know the subject ... if you have art in mind, that's great. I do text icons too!

chomiji: A cartoon image of chomiji, who is holding a coffee mug and a book and wearing kitty-cat ears (Yuletide - windchild)

Many many Yuletide icons (apparently I lost my mind this time), including some warm climate Yule, cartoons and comics, children's books, and even some TV (and Lady Gaga, too). Samples:


Cut for the goods ...  )
chomiji: Goku from Saiyuki, looking confused. Caption: Huh? (Goku - huh?)

I can load sets of brushes in Photoshop and append them to the end of the current in-use set, but of course, that means the brushes window takes longer and longer to open.

But I don't want to reset the brushes window because I'm still using some of the brushes I loaded.

How do unload just one set at a time? Is it possible?

I've started working on Yuletide icons, so I have a pile of new border brushes that I'm trying. I want to keep the ones that have turned out to be useful (as well as the Easy Elements Snowflake brushes, which I love .... although I have to set the size way down to make them work on usericons).

chomiji: Nase Asumi with a wry smile on her face, and the caption Awesomesauce (Asumi - awesomesauce)

The interesting thing about this is that even though I have more than 110 icons, there has been some overlap with previous rounds every time I have done this (after the first, of course) ... I guess most of mine are just not that mysterious to my fellow fangirls! (Also, I looked back and discovered that there has apparently been some change in how LJ stores icons because the icons are no longer showing on my oldest go-round of this.)

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.

2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.

4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

chomiji: Shigure from Fruits Basket, holding a pencil between his nose and upper lip; caption CAUTION - Thinking in Progress (shigure-thinking)

I want an exercise/fitness icon, and I'd prefer a manga one, but I'm having little luck remembering anything that would work, especially if I want to use a female character. I tried one of the frames of Revy (Black Lagoon) doing her crazy reverse pullups belowdecks from vol. 7, but it isn't coming out very well - too much of the scene was hidden by speech balloons to really get an idea of what she's doing once it's cropped in tightly.

Anyone have any ideas?

I can always do something with a photo from Flickr Creative Commons, but that's not what I really want.

chomiji: A cartoon image of chomiji, who is holding a coffee mug and a book and wearing kitty-cat ears (Houmei - cloud)

I made an icon of Houmei with Minekura-sensei's description of him, as you see here.

If you would also like to take him home, I've put the image up here.

And I'm going to use up the image slots I've liberated in no time at this rate.

chomiji: Gojyo from the manga Saiyuki, with the heart and letter K from the King of hearts in a deck of cards (Gojyo - hearts)

My graphics offering and opalmatrix' fanfiction offering are still at their minimum bid! Get a bargain! Let me make pretties for you! Make her write het, even ... Black Lagoon, SDK, BotI ... ! ;-)

chomiji: A chibi drawing of Akari from Samurai Deeper Kyo, holding a plate of mochi dumplings, with caption Coming Right Up! (Akari-mochi)

Image of Doa from Blade of the Immoral, lying on the floor reading I came across the art for this while I was doing Yuletide icon research. I'd love to know the history of it - I wouldn't have thought that Doa was even literate! Perhaps Isaku or Anotsu taught her to read. Anyway, I'm going to be mixing it in with my other reading and manga icons, and you're welcome to have it as well, if you like.

This year's Yuletide icons ... a month earlier than last year! As usual, there are icons on the general themes of winter and gifts as well as book illustrations and covers. This year, I even have a few TV shows thrown in!

chomiji: Yukimura from Samurai Deeper Kyo, smiling and clapping his hands. Caption: Happiness (Yuki-happy)

Classic Icon Meme, ganked from lady-ganesh, in this case:

1. Reply to this post, and I'll pick four or five of your userpics that I like.
2. Make a entry and talk about the icons I've selected.
3. Other people will then comment on your entry and you'll do the same as I've done for you.
4. Thus, we will help create a NEVER ENDING STREAM of icon squee.

macavitykitsune asked about five of my icons ... and thereby demonstrated what was proved in an earlier icon meme: that I have lots and lots and lots of Saiyuki icons.

Cut for the icons and their explanations ...  )

Which reminds me ... I now have a whole 7 empty icon slots! I must have received 5 new loyalty userpics when my yearly payment went through. Such riches ... I think I need Black Lagoon icons, and I collected some possible art to use, but I need to think up slogans. (Yes, meganb, I need slogans!)

That code was – meh. But I digress ... .

I come bearing icons for Yuletide! (Rather late ... I'm sorry!) They include general themes such as gifts and winter, as well as a few specific fandoms. A number of them are based on classic children's book illustrations or covers. Oh, and some are reprises of the date-specific ones I did last year. Enjoy!

Icon Meme!

chomiji: Ikkaku form Belach, with the caption Let Me Explain via Interpretive Dance (ikkaku-explain)

From telophase!

The directions:

  • Reply to this post with the word MEME and I will pick six of your icons.
  • Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
  • Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
  • This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.
The six telophase-selected icons are ...  )

I can't make any guarantees how fast I'll pick stuff out for you ... but I'll do my best!

So now that it's officially autumn (or will be, this afternoon, I think), here are the icons I've been working on ... .

Previews:

Sanzo, from Saiyuki Orihime, from Bleach Yuya & Kyo, Samurai Deeper Kyo

chomiji: Miyazaki's Totoro, joyfully gathering falling acorns (Totoro - acorns)

I've been making some autumn icons. It seems to me that there ought to be more fall artwork for some of these manga! In particular, I'm remembering a Samurai Deeper Kyo "extra" pic of the main cast at a tea house, with golden/red maple leaves all around, but I can't find a copy in any of my usual places ... .

Anyway, if you know of any good art with an autumnal theme that I could use, please let me know!


1. Akari (SDK)

2. Ginko (Mushishi)

3. Hakkai & Gojyo
(Saiyuki)

4. Ritsu
(Fruits Basket)

5. Sai
(Hikaru no Go)

6. Kubota & Tokito
(Wild Adapter)

The Japanese on Akari and Ritsu's pictures ought to be koyo - "autumn colors" - so if I've got it wrong, can someone please let me know? Thanks!
