Requests?

I'm thinking about taking requests for LJ graphics (not only banners and icons, but also more complex layout sets) -- I won't be doing any coding for other people, however.

There's only one problem: I only want to do this for fandoms/pairings I'm interested in, otherwise I get bored. And I don't want to have to use any corny quotes/song lyrics/whatever. So if I actually do this I would have to either reject requests I don't like (which would would invariably seem demeaning to the person whose request I'm rejecting) or I would have to put up a long list of rules (which would make me sound both anal-retentive and bitchy).

So, just as a very tentative poll kind of thingy: would anybody be interested in having their LJ graphics provided by me, with content from the following fandoms:

  • Naruto: characters{Pakkun, Kakashi, Genma, Sakura, Naruto, Jirayia, Tsunade, Neji, Tenten, Lee, Shikamaru}, only het pairings
  • Samurai Champloo: characters{Jin, Mugen, Fuu}, again, only het pairings
  • Inuyasha: characters{Sesshoumaru, Kagome, Miroku, Kikyou, Rin, Jaken, Inupapa}, het pairings{Sesshoumaru/Kagome, Miroku/Kagome, Inuyasha/Sango}
  • Dark Angel: characters{Max, Alec, Sketchy, OC, Biggs}, pairings{Max/Alec}
  • Final Fantasy VII - AC characters{Cloud, Tifa, Vincent, Sephiroth, [Aeris]}, pairings{Vincent/Tifa, Sephiroth/Tifa}

Right. There are more fandoms I like, but it would be too bothersome to list them all, especially if no one's interested in the first place. :)

Eeek I am so tempted because you do such an awesome job with the text and brushes and stuff, but I kind of like doing my own even if it's ghetto cuz then I can say I did it XD I am sure a million people will be interested though.

I can understand that very well -- I always do my own graphics too. :)

Yeah of course! I would love it if some of my layouts/lj graphics were done by you. Your stuff is always so purtiful.

· Naruto: Sakura, Kakashi, Neji, Shikamaru, or Sakura/with any one of these three
· FF7AC: Tifa, Vincent, Sephiroth or Tifa/with any one of these two.

Any one of these would kick ass.

Okay, I'll pick one. :) Dou you need more than a simple header/icon set? And what dimensions would you like the image(s) to have? Also, is there a general theme the header should conform to? Your journal title seems to be 'beautiful alone, do you want me to work that in?

Quite a lot of questions, I know. :)

:D How about a really spiffy Ino layout ;D?

That depends. I don't have any opinion on Ino at all, she's just... there. I suppose I could try.

Because I'm such a mooch, I can't pass this up. Your own layouts prove that you're good, and I like your sense of style/color scheme. -lacks aforementioned things-

  • Samurai Champloo: Mugen or Fuu(Jin's neat, but Mugen break dance fights!)

  • Final Fantasy VII: Sephiroth, Cloud, or Vincent


  • >> Yay.

    Mar. 6th, 2005 01:07 pm (UTC)
    Okay, will probably be either Mugen or Cloud. :) What size would you like the header to be, and would it be a header or more of a sidebar thingy? Also -- one icon or two? Any additional wishes?

    !! I'd love lj graphics!

    Especially Kakashi or Neji layouts =D

    Mar. 6th, 2005 01:11 pm (UTC)
    Okay -- shall it be a header, or more of a side background thingy like you have now? Dimensions? And in case it should fit a particular background colour, do you have any preferences in that direction?

    Also, do you want the theme to lean more towards dark, or more humorous?

    This would be the coolest thing ever, if you end up taking the requests. I'd be interested in any of the following

    -Naruto [Tsunade, Jiraiya] or [SakuNaru or Tsunade/Jiraiya]
    -Inuyasha [Kikyou. Or Jaken. Jaken would be so cool.]

    (of course, I'd have to figure out how to actually change my lj appearance. *is inept* but I figure I'll go and actually read info-full things if/when you make one)

    *sigh* I'd love to have a lovely Vincent/Aeris theme, and of course a Hayate thing would be a total dream come true. But since I've been lacking in the inspiration department lately, it's perfectly fine if you aren't inspired by my suggestions either. XD

    I'm not fond of Vincent/Aeris (and I will be using Advent Children graphics exclusively, so I don't have any shot of Aeris' face). However, I'd love doing a Hayate header/icon set. Do you have any size preferences?

    Saiyuki please!!
    You were doing some Saiyuki icons for a while which are my favorites. Please consider doing some headers of them too.

    Also I have another LJ which is under S1 so I could add headers but do not know how. Can you atleast post the generic html code for adding the header and I can just play with it. Headers with the side bar is very very cool too!

    And what software programs do you use to create your images? I want to learn how to do layered looks. Did I hear someone mention brushes used? Any links you could provide would be cool.

    Of the subject listed above the one I am most interested in is the Samurai Champloo one . . . am not following the other animes . . .

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Re: Saiyuki please!!
    Regarding LJ layouts in general, there is no generic html code that would work for all styles as far is I know. I am certainly not qualified to help, since I only did it once after days of tearing out my hair and already forgot all about it since then.

    However, there are communities for that kind of thing, and FAQs. I can recommend opal_help, but I know no communities that deal with S1 styles.

    As to software, I use Photoshop, but it is quite expensive. I had to save up for months before I could afford it. Not using many brushes, as such. Sometimes I use fragments of photos or such, but I paint lots of the effects myself with a simple brush. It's more fun that way. There are no links that come to mind right now, but I'm sure if you do a search on lj you'll find lots of icon communities that provide some in their user info.

    Yeah, I have no idea if this is still open or anything but I recently found your journal through lots and lots of links I don't even remember now - but I would CERTAINLY be interested in your graphics. Especially a Miroku/Kagome layout of some kind...

    but I was also wondering if I could add you? would you mind?
