Animanga/VG Icon Tutorial Master List

I...sort of started working on this a while ago, but I never made it public until recently.

Anyway, there's a few for people icons, so why not one for animanga and CG characters too? After all, the iconning approach is completely different (Like how excessive selective colouring doesn't always work on animanga icons :()


It's located here, in case anyone's interested.
Waka-chan (^w^)

My first tutorial!!! Wheee!!! Anyways...the main icon being used in this tutorial is the Woody and Jordan kiss from the series finale of Crossing Jordan...cap from http://www.crossingjordanencyclopedia.com. Cross-posted to my LJ. Inspired by unique_kiwi 's Kristen Kreuk tutorial here. Sorry for any quality issues, it happens when you resize it to 100x100.

Program: PSP8. Easily translatable.

Edited: Changed files to PNGs and removed the Rory/Logan one, I didn't like how that ended up even after re-cropping

round borders?

a while ago, i made a post about how i could do round borders on my pictures, someone replied with a link, this link showed the difference between an average tutorial on how to do them compared to a better one, there was 2 screenshots of a sharp border and a smooth border, i've gone back quite a few entries and tried looking through the memories, i can't find it anywhere.

does anyone have the link?

nevermind, i found it; http://90miles.livejournal.com/1211.html
