Look Ma, no ADS! (and some goodies!)  
Well, I made the leap and purchased a permanant LJ account!  *sigh* I was talking to ravenroxanne last night and was weighing the options of whether or not I should, but as I checked this morning, IF I were to purchase a paid account, including the max userpics and max storage, it would be about $54 dollars a year.  The permanant account is $150, so thats a little over 3 years worth for life.  (Forgive my math if I'm wrong, I can't add 2+2)  So, I decided to go for it.  Its pathetic cuz I already have 3 domain names and as many sites, but I figure, if I keep this and my photobucket running, I wouldn't need much else, except for video storage, which I have plenty of now.  I'm happy about it, especially the no-ad thing, plus getting to have all the userpics.  No more rotating out.  Plus, $25 dollars of it goes to charity, so if you're thinking of doing it, go for it. ;)

And here are some new goodies.  No icons today kiddies, just some banners and a wallpaper, but I hope you still like.

Comment, credit, snag, looooooove looooooooove loooooooooooove..... :D

Your welcome. :) How did you get the vintage look on the 8th Phantom banner?

I made that particular picture ages and ages ago, but if I'm not mistaken, I took the cap, duplicated it, then made it black and white (desaturate), then lowered the opacity a bit. Then I hit it with filter/noise. Not sure of the numbers but it monochromatic was not checked. Just play with the settings yourself and the level of the noise. For the edges, I merged the layers, then duplicated it. The bottom layer I filled with black, then on the top layer, I used a quick mask (Q on your keyboard), then made a square using the square marquee tool. Then when the square box turns red, I hit Q again and it selected the outer edges of the picture. Then I cut that part out, leaving a squared edge. I took my eraser tool and softly erased the harsh edges. Finally, the flowers are by annikavanholdt and I just dotted them around the shaded edge.
Sorry, i'm not the best at explaining, I hope that helps some. If you want more detail, I can do that as well. ;)

OMG! I don't know about machine...it took me three days to make these! LOL! Well, maybe a machine, but an impatient one, I'm too darn picky. But, I'm glad you like them.
I love the Azazeal wallpaper, I plan to make a couple more if I can snag some more screen caps. ;) (And yes, the man is adorable)

A permanent accout would be so cool (no more rotating the userpix sounds sooooo good) but i decided not to do. My family (me, Mum, my niece and my godson) are going on holiday to Turkey next months and i promised my Mum to pay half the bill for niece and godson so i better save my money :)
Great artwork as usually. I love all the banners. They all look gorgeous.

And yes, that's understandable that you need to wait. Priorities. Your fam comes first. Turkey, huh? Never been but I hear its very nice, I hope you have a great time. ;)

Your work is always genius, but I'm head over heels for the Azazeal wallpaper. It should look about perfect on my desktop. :-)

Thank you very much! I'm glad you like the wallpaper, I'm very happy with the way it turned out. ;)
