A tale of souls and swords  
So I'm working on an unofficial [livejournal.com profile] solo20in20 run largely just because I feel like it. I wanted an excuse to make icons and the unofficial claim post they made yesterday seemed like a good reason to start.

They might not be perfect (in fact at least one of them sucks imho), but I'm having a on of fun making them.

I have a feeling I'm going to end up with a ton of icons that look similar to 8, because for some reason I just really, really like that one. So chances are each of the characters I have saved to my h-drive is going to end up with one.  Maybe I should make that my AC set and make a new 8. Hmmmm.....

So yes. this post was entirely for me to ramble about icons I made last night. XD; See this is why I don't update very often because I have nothing important to say.

Oh! Since I'm moving to DW and all ('Sup LJ people? This is my first crossposted post. Yay) I have a srs bsns question for everyone. I'm (obviously) going to need/want an icon comm here on Dreamwidth. The only question is what do I call it? So if you've got any ideas or suggestions  for what to name my DW Icon comm that'd be awesome.

I like your icons! I WISH I WERE JUST AS GOOD.

It's hard coming up with comm names are that easy to remember but also awesome. I went through a hardcore phase of getting good names on DW when it first opened. I did that by looking up a list of the world's most beautiful words. Maybe try looking up a list like that and see if the names are available?

I'm so helpful I know :-P

Awwe don't wish that. I'm not very good at all. XD; You'd be better finding an iconmaker with more skill. There's one in this very post so it's not hard.


Well I actually half wanted Whimsicality but it was already taken. :(

Though I'm being silly. I've had the same icon comm for 2 years, so it'd make more sense to use the same comm name, but... I dunno. /shrug

Maybe using the same name is a good idea, then people will know OH HEY I REMEMBER THEM and etc?

The lure of using a neat name is too much for me personally. All the possibilities! Like I said, I went on a crazy spree when DW first started (and I don't use half those journals.)

And yes you are good! :P I like your cropping and colors! I'm really picky about such things.

The comm had 77 followers and I think most of them were there for my co-mod. XD; So that's not really an issue.

My current ideas are moonset, crystallinity, salience, and decorous.

I'm leaning towards Salience, but I'm wondering if that's a little too tongue in cheek considering the definition. Then again I guess that's true of decorous too. Oops.

I personally like Salience :D
Colleen: Number of the truck that ran me over?[personal profile] uninvited on December 29th, 2011 07:01 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure if I'd do Salience or SalienceIcons or something of the sort. ORZ

And then I went with something not on the list at all. I'm good. XD;

I love your icons. The colors are so bright and vibrant. I don't know the fandom, sadly. It looks like a video game.

For your graphic community.. I have no idea. I created ~gospelle simply because that's what I'm known over on LJ. I'm thinking that maybe I'd like someone to co-mod with me.........

They're from Soul Calibur. One of the few fighting games I actually like. (That and Tekken) The... I think it's technically sixth game in the franchise (Soul Calibur V), comes out the end of next month. I honestly like that it's a fighting game that has weapons involved, I just think it's cooler that way.

I'm not super well known, so I don't really see a reason to keep the same comm name. Not to mention since it is/was a shared comm it's not exactly just mine anymore. I neither update enough nor do have the skills to co-mod with someone awesome such as yourself.
Serys: remember the way i was[personal profile] serys on December 29th, 2011 04:31 am (UTC)
Aww. :( Alright.
Colleen: Number of the truck that ran me over?[personal profile] uninvited on December 29th, 2011 08:43 am (UTC)
Awwe. :( I would, but holiy intimidation factor. You're one of my favorite iconmakers after all. @_@
Serys: w/e[personal profile] serys on December 29th, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC)
w/e, girly. XD thank you though. ;.; you always know what to say to boost my ego.
Colleen: Oh um... well... would you like some tea[personal profile] uninvited on December 29th, 2011 09:13 pm (UTC)
I mean it! The speed you seem to possess just should not be allowed with the amount of skill you have. It blows my mind how quickly you can post.

I would go for the Affiliates route though if you wanted? I finally settled on [community profile] elysia.

THIS IS NONSENSE! I DEMAND WE CO MOD A COMM TOGETHER.
Alrighty. I'll add you when I get mine up and going! n_n
Colleen: If you come here you'll find me[personal profile] uninvited on December 30th, 2011 04:28 am (UTC)
There will be plenty of comms in the future I promise.

Great! Let me know and we can play the icon trading game.
