Icon Post No. 06  
Hello! Contrary to popular opinion, I'm still alive and I feel fantastic, too. University has been more busy than usual, especially since I've taken the initiative and joined more extra-curricular clubs this year. Fortunately, since after this I'll be cutting the sets down to around fifty icons each, posts should be about as frequent as...normal. ("Normal" implying "often enough that my watchers don't forget I exist.")

The comm has undergone two layout changes since the last post, as well as a banner change. Please tell me what you think of them.

Also, the YKK icons in this set are all from the tutorial, the background section of which should be up...sometime this semester, i.e. before December. As I wrote before, the images are all ready, but the text isn't -- and that's the most difficult part of setting the tutorial up!

That said, please enjoy the icons!

[37] Fullmetal Alchemist
[16] Otoyomegatari
[14] Tokyo Babylon
[39] xxxHOLiC
[12] Miscellaneous CLAMP (Kobato. and Card Captor Sakura)

Thank you! I've got a bunch of Tegami Bachi bases saved for the next set, too, so please look forward to that. :)

I'm glad! There's a big time gap between some of these, so I was worried that a few looked a lot more blurry/oversaturated/just plain worse than the others.

Wow, just wow ♥
You're a source of inspiration!!! ♥♥♥♥
I'll never get tired of telling you how much I love how you color! It's just akjshaksa so beautiful and I see improvement every time you post a new batch ;,; ♥♥♥ I love all of the icons!! ♥♥♥ The Lust icons reminded me of Mucha =w= ~ ♥ My favorite icons are the Kohane ones! ♥♥♥
I think the new banner looks great!! *3* It looks very pretty ~~ ♥

Your post has made me happy! ♥
outou on September 20th, 2010 04:31 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :'D I really appreciate it.

The Lust icons actually were based off of several different works by Mucha, so I'm glad you saw the resemblance. It was new for me, so coloring those icons in particular was a lot of fun.

Gorgeous icons! I'm taking some FMA and Otoyomegatari! If it's not too much to ask, could I please have a link to the panel colourings for Otoyomegatari?
outou on September 20th, 2010 04:38 pm (UTC)
Sure thing! I normally save the full colorings for larger posts later on, but it'll be better if I start uploading them now instead of spending a full hour finding and tagging them at some later date. Here's Amira, Karluk, and Rostam (the little bald boy).

the human skin tones on some of these are amazing and a few quite haunting. I love them. I'll be snagging a few of the FMA ones
outou on September 20th, 2010 04:39 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much, and I hope you enjoy them!

Your coloring is the most beautiful that I've seen. *_*
I'll be taking some, and will credit when I use them.
Btw, the layout is great, simple and clean ^_^

Thank you! And I'm sorry I haven't been present much on LJ (or Dreamwidth) lately -- I've been reading your entries, but haven't had the time to form coherent comments.

Oh my. Your coloring is probably the most awesome thing ever.
Taking some FMA ones, will credit!
