Guess what I learned how to make this week?


Below are two SVU-related animated icons, painful in their simplicity. And only one of them is LJ friendly, which means the other one is really just an icon-sized image.

Now that I know the rudiments of this art, I will be practicing and working on getting them under 40kb each. At the same time, however, I'll try not to let my newest hobby distract me from my writing.

For the most part.



PS...If you'd like to use either of these, please do so! Comments are crack and credit is unnecessary.

PPS...Thank you, Tiff honey, for helping me with this particular artistic venue. I couldn't have done it without you. My laptop also thanks you because it knows how close I was yesterday to throwing its useless ass out the bay window in the living room. ;)

You are too kind, dearest! Truly!

But thanks! :D

Let me know if you find a way to make them under 40kb without losing quality. I've just started making them myself, but anything too long gets gobbled up in blurred pixels.

Very nice. How do you do the twirly?

I sure will. :)


As for the swirly, I used a radial blur filter on 14 on the text panels.

A trick I stole directly from my cutie. ;)

I am so glad you liked them! :D

I can see tons of potential for wonderful animated Casey icons. ;)

Okay, your icons completely kick my icons' asses. If you optimize your icons in animation shop, it'll drastically cut file sizes -- how much quality you lose depends on the amount of colors you tell it to keep and whatnot. I do think the Limer Panties icon is beyond help for fitting LJ standards, you'd have to take it down to like... 3 colors to fit it. It's still a lovely icon either way. ;)

Thank you!

I'll keep that in mind as for the optimization. And yes, I think the Panties one is just irredeemable. But it had to be done. ;)

I'm glad you liked them. :D

Sooo pretty, I want to touch it.... :P

You want to touch Diane's panties? What? ;)


I'm glad you liked them. :D
Trublutrublusvufan on February 27th, 2006 12:20 am (UTC)
Well, I didn't say that exactly, you did ;)
Kudos again :P

I'd touch 'em. :D

Fabulous icons, by the way! :)

"Oh, and that Mar's a Limer too"

Beautiful Icons ^-^

Thank you, dearheart!

Glad you like them.

And it had to be Mar that gave her those, right? I mean, come on. ;)
