Stray Icons

I have a lot of stray icons lying about. I figure I should post them before they start getting claimed by other people, heh. Not the best icons, mostly just results of random experimentation, lol. Or they're just flat out old! *coughmyvandhydeiconscough*

As always, commenting and crediting vraxis or anterogradenova is much appreciated :D

Zy Megaedition 05 - Ryutaro + Tatsurou

I guess, from time to time, I'll be adding magazine scans to this journal as well! XDD

ZyMegaediton 05 is 300+ pages of pure Plastic Tree and MUCC goodness. Features photos from multiple issues of Zy and includes two brand new photoshoots of Ryutaro and Tatsurou. (What I have scanned here.)

These scans are free for your use, but please do not repost anywhere on Livejournal. Free for all uses, credit is appreciated but not required.

For the sake of information, here are the other photoshoots in the magazine.

Plastic Tree - Vol 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29
MUCC - Vol 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 27, 28, 29

No, I will not be scanning these, because this book is THICK and it wasn't cheap. I don't want to risk tearing it x.x Also, I've seen all of them on the internet at one point or another. I'm sure you can find them. ^_^

If you want to purchase your own, you can get it through http://www.j-xyz.com

[2] Tutorial: Kyuubi Naruto

Another tutorial from me. ^^ This time we'll be focusing on the magic of desaturation when coloring manga icons and, of course, enhancing it with textures.

Mmm.... ferocious little guy, isn't he?

Program: Photoshop CS2
Difficulty: uh... medium? If you've got coloring down, then this shouldn't be hard.

Manga Icon Tutorial: SakuraPunch!

Manga Icon Tutorial: SakuraPunch!

Waheeey! My first icon tutorial, as suggested by reichi_heika. ^_^ Today we're going to learn basic manga coloring techniques and the advantage of using textures.

We'll be making this lovely little icon:

Program: Photoshop CS2 (Works for 7.0 as well.) I think it can be translated into PSP as well, I'm not 100% sure.
Difficulty: Medium (more time consuming than difficult, actually.)
