Of course, I have just made a new journal...and now it will lay there unused.

Hi everyone. This was a hard decision for me but my wrists pains have increased, I couldn't sleep last night and even if I thought I could be able to translate and also do this, I was wrong. My tendons strain too much like this. And since translating requires hours of work writing, I have to drop LJ and iconing, at least for a while.

This makes me so sad, but I don't really have a choice. I have everything, proper chairs and ergonomic mouses, but in the end, I have to cut back.

I'll finish the last rounds I'm modding and then I'll go. I'll pop up from time to time to see how things are going and to look at all the beauties you create.

Heyyy, I've finally created the community where I'll post my icons from now on.

Here is the link if you still wanna follow my work. I hope you will.

http://owlpost-icons.livejournal.com/

As of now, there's a post with links to my recent icons.
Then I'll post my next batch directly there :)
My old stuff will always be here though.

I guess it was time to move everything to an icon community.
I'll still update this with more personal stuff :)

Hiiii

I've been thinking about creating a community for my icons as I see many people do. I've been undecided cause I'm not sure that many people would be interested but I'll make it anyway, just to keep things organized :)

I'll probably make it in the next few days or even today if I can manage to find time and a good layout...honestly, I like the one I have now so I'll just probably use the same one lol
or one without header, though I don't like it that much...

Ok, enough rambling. Just a heads-up. I had to skip an icon challenge this week cause my wrists are killing me but I think that if I rest enough for a couple of weeks I can make the next ones I signed-up for.

I hope you're doing well.

PS.If someone has advice and tips for the icon community, please feel free to share them :)

Here are 20 icons of Rachel for character20n20. I loved this round and I loved iconing Rach! I've just finished a rewatch of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. and I'm in a very nostalgic mood. I hope you like these. Oh, if you haven't watched it and plan to do it, avoid these icons.
Now I can focus on my 20muses batch. You should check their latest challenge if you haven't, it's amazing.

I've seen my icons on fanpop lately, I had no idea people used my icons there ahah. So from now on I'll add a general disclaimer (trying not to sound like a jerk):

Hello!! :)
I signed up for a couple of challenges this month and so here is my first batch for 10in30. A really great community. Check it out! :)
This round's theme was star-crossed lovers. And I had claimed Buffy so of course I made Bangel icons.
Here they are. I tried to improve on my text. It wasn't easy but I'm trying :) (Icon 2 and 6 are textures and the Always text came from a screencap).

The first 5 icons represent star-crossed lovers. The other 5 separation and/or longing.

Time passed AGAIN! :)
I got back into modding communities and I've also been busy with a new translation and lots of reading. I haven't felt like joining 20in20's lately and I preferred participating in weekly challenges.
So these are some icons from LIMS and different communities and also my partial entry of Salem for episodes20in20 that I never finished.

Hi!

Wow, I haven't posted in a while. Just wanna say I'm gonna post some icons soon (no 20in20's for lack of time) and there is a great community I've discovered recently called capicontest. Basically there's a theme and the challenges center around the caps posted at capspiration.


capicontest capicontest capicontest


Check it out because it's FUN and if, like me, you don't have time to look for screencaps, this gives you a chance to save time and make icons anyway!

Heyy! This entry has MAJOR SPOILERS so if you haven't watched season 6 yet, DON'T click on the cut. The icons will of course be visible for the voting post, but at least this way you know if you wanna look at this post or not.

I worked a lot on these icons, more than I usually do. I wanted to challenge myself a bit and try new things (the Mona icon was inspired by this GORGEOUS post here: http://iconpraise.livejournal.com/217109.html) like text in two of these, which is something I almost never do by myself. Also, I'm totally obsessed with lookslikerain, fuurs, rebel and fassy grungy textures right now. LOVE THEM!

All the icons are under the cut! :)

I can't believe I am finally posting! It took me FOREVER and I'm still not ok with most of these. I don't know what happened, but every screencap didn't work for me and I had to re-do basically all of these for character20n20 where competition is HARD to say the least. But time is running out and I had to finish the batch.
