Show me some loving! :D

You're probably getting tired of my random disappearance and appearance, but hey! Life's never easy. XD~ Anyway, 13 icons for me today. If you've been following my progress you should see a slight change of style... but that's just because I'm a little bit rusty. 8D~

Duh, I swear I'm getting rambly. Anyway, onto the icons!

Practice makes perfect

Exams are over and I'm finally getting my well-deserved break! :3 And that means more icons! *dodges shoes*

Today I bring you fifteen icons from various fandoms. Finally, more non-CLAMP icons! XD Though you can never have enough CLAMP icons, it's good to have some variety. I must warn you though, this batch is highly experimental. I was trying out different styles~ Do leave a comment and tell me what you think. ;D Enjoy!

P.S. Did you know that I have my own colorbar now? :D silma @ sakuramaboroshi was kind enough to make me one. ♥ She also made other colorbars for a few other (super talented) iconists, so go check it out. :DD

CLAMP always inspires

You know, inspiration always comes at the oddest moments. 8D; Like when I'm supposed to be studying for finals...

Anyway, eight CLAMP icons this time, before I go on a short break from LJ and all to focus on my studies. Or at least, try to. 8DD;;; A big thank you to boutique @ clampesque for providing really lovely light textures which I used a lot in this batch. They were really helpful!

I hate dial-up's!

So after a whole week of struggle, I finally got my muse to sit down and help me with iconing. The results can be seen in this post, where I present to you 15 CLAMP and Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children icons. I wanted to make a bigger batch but I don't like it when unpublished icons sit on my desktop for too long, so this will do for now. :) Hopefully you'll enjoy this batch as much as I do!
