The mini-challenge for clamp_icontest's Week 405 was Numbers Game, where you had to icon the numbers one through six, representing each somehow. It was interesting coming up with ideas for each, playing with both the visuals and text. I'm also including my icons thus far made for calendarsquares' colour of the month challenges and summer rumble, for a total of 55 icons. Help yourself if something catches your eye, but kindly:

37 CLAMP, Anime/Manga & Video Game Icons

The mini-challenge for clamp_icontest's Week 404 was Lost & Found (couldn't resist the pun XD), where you had to icon five different clothing items one might lose and then find in said box. The bonus challenge was to make your icons non-box shape, so I had a lot of fun working with different Photoshop shapes and white space to create the desired effect ^^'

Once again using this as an excuse to post my back-log of graphics, I'm including a few sets I made for the anime20in20 battle last year, as well as the more recent video game battle hosted by astrokittie back in March/April. In total there are 37 CLAMP, anime and video game icons so help yourself but as always please remember to:

52 CLAMP Icons

I've decided to start hosting mini-challenges over at clamp_icontest instead of the standard icontest ones in hopes of bringing some more life to the community through change. I have no idea how it will turn out or if it will be of any real help, but I'm excited to actually get to participate myself rather than sit by the sidelines crossing my fingers that more people will enter. It's also fun to come up with new ideas ^^' If you're a CLAMP fan, you should definitely check it out, the more the merrier!

The first challenge was to make a set of four CLAMP icons taking elements from a/different non-CLAMP series and crossover them. To make this post a bit more update-worthy, I also decided to throw in some older sets I made for previous battle and challenges that had been submitted there (or posted in my personal LJ at the time instead) but never posted over here... yay for beginning to clear out the backlog XD In total there are 52 icons, so please help yourself to anything you like, but kindly remember to:

21 Umi Ryuuzaki Icons

Is this honestly my first post in 2013!?! Goodness, how time flies >.> I had planned to finish a previous 20in20 set a while back (not to mention that ever growing backlog) but it's difficult for me to fully commit to these things due to my work schedule. Still, I knew I had to take part in clamp_icontest's 20x20=400 challenge (in honour of our 400th week and 9 year anniversary) since it's a very special occasion and I didn't get to participate in the Mod30Challenge (seeing as it was for my birthday and all ^^').

Anyway, this is an unofficial submission (meaning it won't actually be competing with the other entries, since some iconmakers are uncomfortable with moderators doing so) but I still had a lot of fun with it! I chose to make 21 icons of Umi Ryuuzaki from Magic Knight Rayearth because it's one of my favourite CLAMP series and not iconed as much these days. I love all three of the knights equally, but Umi is so beautiful and graceful, plus I cannot resist the colour blue XD Please help yourself but remember to follow the rules:

20 Anime ABC Icons

Cutting it a bit more close to the wire than I would like, but jobs will do that to your icon making schedule... about to run off to the bus there now actually ^^' Still I was determined to finish this set in time!

Here are 20 icons featuring various anime/manga series for anime20in20's latest round. It was an open challenge, so to make things a bit more interesting for myself, I decided to try and represent the entire alphabet of different series titles, be it English or Japanese. This proved rather difficult because the category set had to be only one movie title (I decided to use the five vowels as a sub-category for it instead, in keeping with my theme), but I managed to make it work and had a lot of fun doing so XD If you find anything here you like, please help yourself, just remember to:

20 Ikuto Tsukiyomi Icons

Started a new full time job a few weeks ago, which is great for my bank account... not so good for my free time ^^' As such I've been further delayed in getting caught up with old icon posts, that said I did somehow manage to finish another claim over at anime20in20, this time featuring one chosen male character!

Here are 20 icons of Ikuto Tsukiyomi from Shugo Chara! I love this character because one moment he is being a playful tease and a bit of a trouble-maker, then the next he is really sweet and affectionate making you just want to hug him... in other words, he's a cat XD Please take whatever tickles your fancy, but I'd appreciate it if you would:

20 Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury Icons

Hello 2012 ^^' Well, I still have a lot of work to do cleaning up things around the community plus archiving my many old HP and remaining AMVG icons... I'm such a procrastinator, when am I ever going to get to that... but in the meantime I decided to do a claim over at anime20in20 to inspire me to actually post something here this year.

Here are 20 icons of Ami Mizuno aka Sailor Mercury, who I chose as my female character because Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon was basically the first anime I was ever exposed to and she was always my favourite! That and I really like the colour blue ;) I'm generally proud of this post, but mainly just the fact that I finished early for once XD Please help yourself but kindly remember to:

please excuse this post, it is feeling rather blue todayCollapse )

20 Odin Sphere Icons

Even when I get an early start on these things, I still find myself working right up until the last minute >.<' Plus to be honest I've been hesitating to post this set because some of these icons were quite challenging to make and had me pushing the limits of boundaries I usually don't explore, so I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the results... but I'm forcing myself to do so anyways because I really did work hard to finish and am happy with other icons within the batch; anyway beauty is in the eye of the beholder XD

Enough rambling, here are 20 icons from the game Odin Sphere for Round 10 at otp20in20. It's a very interesting game with a lot of complexly intertwined storylines and I tried to explore a wide variety of relationships (both traditional and otherwise) as a result. If you see anything here you like, please feel free to take but remember to:

P.S. I hope everyone that celebrates has a wonderful Christmas or is otherwise enjoying the holiday/winter season!

20 Yuna Icons

Here are 20 icons of Yuna from Final Fantasy for solo20in20 before I run off to work, since I was suppose to post them last night but passed out instead. I almost had to drop this claim because work/life got so hectic and began seriously draining my energy levels... but since the deadline was delayed, I knew I had to finish!

Yuna is one of my all time favourite FF characters and there is such a wide variety of images to use of her from the different game titles she appears in, plus the over-arching theme (Greek Mythology) was interesting to work with; so even though there was stress I did enjoy making this set XD But enough rambling, look and/or take whatever you like but please remember to:

20 Soul Eater Icons

Yet another claim, what can I say, they motivate me to actually post the icons I make/enter into contests *looks at backlog with guilt*. Tonight I have 20 Soul Eater icons for otp20in20. This is such an awesome series with so many colourful characters and way too many different types of pairings. I decided as an extra challenge I would restrict myself to one icon per pairing so that I would explore as many as possible... but there are still so many left untouched, favourite character bias and all. Hope you like them and if so feel free to snag but kindly:
