There were a few new icons I've been wanting to create so... I did so! Give me feedback, please! I've been staring at these long enough already I can't really tell if the text is too hard to read in some, if they're too dark, etc etc. So lemme know.

Edit: Sorry if you looked briefly and saw broken images, I went back and re-edited and re-uploaded some based on comments. Mostly fixing text on two, and adjusting the brightness/contrast on others, once I realized that duh, you can do that in photoshop!

Here's an introduction:

An avatar I created for another forum using http://www.tektek.org/dream/dream.php, and decided to resize it for use here as well.

I'd decided I wanted a Pirates of the Caribbean userpic, so.. here we go. The text just seemed obvious after I chose the character, which was also, well, obvious. The sad thing about it, aside from my display of Orlando fangirlism, is that my brain is trying to tell me that the "correct" version of the saying is "where there's a whip there's a way." (Left, right, left, right, left, right.)

And... my advent children userpics. I went ahead and uploaded the ones I created, though I'm afraid that some may end up a bit too dark and hard-to-see really to be used as user pics. We'll see. I may end up deleting them if so. I'm also worried that the text on the last one might need to be tweaked to be better seen.

As a note, the images from PotC and Advent Children were from screenshots that I took myself playing the DVD on my laptop, rather than images found on the web. I figured that's the best way to get what I want. ;)

One more tweak...

I also uploaded a new version of an old icon... the one on this entry. The new version is this:

In case you're viewing this on a page where the icon used for an individual post doesn't show up, here's the current version:

I figured I'd fish for any comments pro or con before I switch it over. I think the new one's easier to read, but thought I'd see what others thought, since I have had the one for a bit.
