OK, so I hadn't done this yet and thought I really should. =)

This is incomplete at the moment, since I have yet to catalogue where most of the bases came from: suffice to say that very few of them were capped by me since I can't get very good quality on my laptop for some reason!

The currently defunct (but one day to return?) TrekPulse galleries
The also currently dead DS9 Caps UK site.
The TrekCore Galleries.
The Cardassian Tribute Page.
Some caps taken from Memory Alpha's articles.

Babylon 5
The wonderful Between the Darkness and the Light picture galleries.
Ed Wasser's official home page.
Some caps taken from Wikipedia's articles.

Many caps for various fandoms are found through the ever-reliable Google image search!

Will get round to cataloguing where the other bases have come from.

Textures and Brushes
I have only recently begun to properly experiment with light textures and so forth - all of my textures so far have come from the wonderful colorfilter. When more are added, they'll be included here!

As for fonts - a lot of them have been on my computer since time immemorial, but will catalogue the new ones soon.


Right, so ... that was still pretty procrastinatory! Will fix it soon, I promise!

What program do you use to make your icons?
I use The GIMP. It is free.
When I first started making icons, I didn't want to spend the money to find out I didn't like it... or couldn't make them to my satisfaction. Now I am just too lazy to learn PhotoShop.

dearest has some nice textures and stuff. :D

I use Photoshop v 6.0, it's pretty good though not as up to date as it could be! Was lucky actually, cos my Dad already had it for some reason so we just loaded it on to my computer! Is GIMP good? =) You make some lovely effects in your icons!

Thanks so much for the dearest link - there are some gorgeous textures and colours there!! I need to get a new zip program, but when I do, will give them a try!

GIMP is a 'half-baked' program, but it is free so I roll with it. There aren't many tutorials for GIMP out there, so I am pretty much self taught. There are a few GIMP communities in LJ, which has helped on more that one occassion.

My icon is the second animated icon I made with The GIMP>>>> it was almost like pulling teeth! heheheheeeee...

Hey, free programs sound good to me! ^_^ And it's amazing that you're self-taught, well done! =) I only realised that you could sharpen an image using layers (instead of just the "sharpen" button) after reading a tutorial! And still haven't got the hang of the really cool colour fill layers, arg!

Your icon is cool! (It's funny, cos I got into B5 only recently and after watching Lost, but now when I see Lost again am going to be thinking "Delenn!" It's a great angle you have in your icon though!

I'm a huge Mira Furlan fan....
I also made 100 Danielle icons for a now defunct LOST100 community.

:::points @ your icon:::
That is very cool and most amusing! Did you make that... and the Narn one with the rosy lips?
Llanita: Now I'm a Narn! ^_^christinuviel on April 5th, 2006 11:32 pm (UTC)
*blushes* Thanks!! Yeah, have photoshopped myself as a Cardassian, a Narn and a Minbari ... it's amazing to what extremes procrastination can take a person, lol! Although the Narn one kind of scares people I think!

I think it is the cadillac red lipstick... ;)

Hehehe! It seemed the right choice for a Narn though! Kinda fierce!
