I Bring Icons and a Fic!  
I'm delurking to bring you my first attempt at icon-making in addition to a fic. Since this is my first icon dump ever, advice is appreciated.


1) 2) 3) 4) 5) 6) 7) 8)

Textures in numbers 3, 6, and 7 by peoplemachines. The source for the brushes for number 2 were lost when my computer crashed a few years ago, so if you recognize them, please tell me so I can give credit.

Please credit colormywaffles if you use one of the icons. Also, please comment if taking.

I also wrote a fanfiction about Team Gai, and even though it's mostly about Lee (kind of...), there's some NejiTen, so I figured I might as well post that too.

(Ooh, look at the pretty fake-cut!)

(Icons crossposted to various places; fic crossposted to other places as well.)

Hilarious Lee one. ;D

Advice? Oh, well. I don't pretend to be the best iconmaker around, but perhaps sharpening your image would be a good idea for number seven and eight.

Otherwise, it's all a good start. Great work. ^^b Better than me when I first started. ><;

Okay; thanks! I tried sharpening on numbers 6 and 7, but it ended up being eye-burning, so I figured that it'd be better left blurry. But I can see what you mean, so I'll work on that.

Thank you! I hope to make some more icons soon.

Ooooh your first time making avatars? They're sweet! Me taking 3, kay? It's strange how you made a avatar with Tenten and the character 'sky' because I was just explaining to my sister about the similarities between Tenten and Tian (symbol for sky) Unless you know that already, heehee

Btw, I'm new around here, so I hope to see you around LJ!

Actually, funnily enough, I was using the Japanese reading (since that is what I'm most familiar with, being in Japanese 2), which is... "Ten", which means heaven.

Which is wholly unoriginal, I know. But the fact that it applies to Tenten with both readings is really neat. I think that may have made my day!
