Self portraits [27 Dec 2004|02:57am]

merky
Hi guys! I hope all of you had a good holiday season because I sure haven't! But that's ok because I'm (hopefully) getting a lot of money since I've been working so much.

Anyhow, I just wanted to show off these two new icons I made from photographs of myself. One of them is supposed to be me with porn-star hair, but you can't really tell since I cropped most of it out.



Feel free to comment with your own self portrait icons!

Reminder [29 Nov 2004|08:59am]

The contest ends one week from now. Please send in your submissions!

If I don't get at least 3 by the cut off date, I'll just choose a different topic for the next contest.

I may be adding a little something to the contest so that people who don't have access to a camera and/or those too busy to take pictures (cough like me cough) will be able to participate. Increasing participation = good.

Icon contest? [16 Nov 2004|08:37pm]

merky
Dude, this community has been dead for way too long.

So how about a poll on making an icon contest for the community?

the pollCollapse )

Please comment with any of your thoughts!

I just want to get this community jumpstarted again and perhaps the contest would lure in more members. And more icon posts!

Here are some icons I made from pictures I took at the aquarium yesterday. It was really hard to take pictures through the really glass and my camera keep focusing on the reflections on the glass so I got a lot of blurry pictures. I took around 200 pictures though so I managed to get a few nice ones.

Hi! [22 Jul 2004|03:49pm]

[ mood | content ]

Hello all, I'm new here (obviously). I've been looking for a good image community for quite a while and I think I've finally found one... so... on to the information then.

1. Name: Remy
2. Age: 15
3. Location: The Moon, Space
4. I usually take photos of: Anything that looks interesting. Nature is fun most of the time, but the right pictures of people can also be neat.
5. Anything else you want to say: I would have some icons to post, but I'm kind of inbetween graphics programs at the moment. I'm saving up to buy Photoshop or PSP, but I don't have enough money right now (being 15 sucks.) So, I'll probably be learning from everyone else for a while.

Happy to join! ^_^

1. Name: Ricki
2. Age: 17
3. Location: New York
4. I usually take photos of animals, anything outside, amusing little things that most people overlook, irony.
5. Anything else you want to say: These are the product of the first time I've taken my camera out with the intention of taking some actual artistic photography. A couple of them will probably turn into icons later, but right now I'd like to get some criticism because I'm actually quite new to the whole taking-pictures-as-art thing.

It's a composite of two photos, and I made the icon for a tutorial on halftones for PS.

Took these photos a few days ago and made into bases for later use.

  

The full set is here, but they don't get much better.
