FAQ (Back to top.)

What do you do?
I make icons and banners/headers ... and the like.

Why?
'Cause it's fun, creative, and challenging.

What program do you use?
I use Adobe Photoshop Elements. Not as complete as normal Photoshop, but also not nearly as expensive.

Where do you get all your pictures and graphic elements?
A full list of my resources can be found here.

Can I friend you?
Of course. I'll even friend you back!

Can I make requests?
Not at the moment. I am planning to reopen the REQUESTS section, but I'm not sure when. For now, please refer to the SUGGESTION BOX.

What if I don't want to request something specific?
Just post in the SUGGESTION BOX.

How do I not hotlink, as you request?
Save the image to your computer, and upload it to a storage site like Photobucket or Imageshack.us. For more info, read THIS.

Should I credit you?
Well, I'm not going to hunt you down or anything if you don't, but crediting is nice :). I don't know how to credit.

Can I respond to your posts?
Please do! I love getting an idea of what people think.

Any additional information or advice?
Well, I'm 22 and a college student in RI. My favorite color is purple, and I love Harry Potter.
As for advice ... well, if you're experimenting with icon-making, definitely keep at it, because eventually things will just click. Be creative. Have fun. Also, save in PNG format if you can -- it's so much clearer! Oh, and make sure to take advantage of the tutorials out there. icon_tutorial is a great place to start :).
