Lookie what I made!!  
FINALLY figured out how to do this ipod thing! Thanks to a tutorial by abyssinia and a couple of others, I think I have my own method figured out which is a bit easier I think. Don't have to do all that select/inverse stuff. So here it is. And I shouldn't have to say it but it seems it needs to be said, please don't take these and claim you did them. Yes, I know its not a unique design, but I did take the time to make them, so please don't be a lazy ass and steal. Use your brain and go learn to make them yourself.

This is the original:

And this is a bit different, with extra doo-dads, as ravenroxanne likes doo-dads!

I have another couple of variations and I can also do different colors if anyone wants something other than green (just through green would be xmas festive!) Just let me know. ;)

For those interested, i'll be making another small icon post here in the next couple of days, before xmas. :D
How I'm feeling: cheerfulin the xmas spirit!

Look at the pretty. It´s even better than what i did. Fantastic job !

Thank you! And no, its not better than yours. It was your tut that helped me figure out how to do it. ;)
Heike: Freundeabyssinia on December 20th, 2007 04:50 pm (UTC)
*beams* I´m glad it was helpful for you.
Did someone steal your image or why did you edit your posting ?

PS. Your icon is hilarious ! LOLZ

I had actually intended on adding that extra bit about stealing but forgot until I re-read the post, so I edited it to fit. I've had a couple of things stolen and hotlinked and it irks me so much! I realize that taking a picture, adding textures, doo-dads, etc isn't exactly creating something totally original, but I at least did it, so I should get credited for it. If someone wants one so damn bad, they should learn photoshop and make their own, not steal anyone else's, in my opinion.

An Amen to this !

pretty! I did a iphantom one a few weeks ago-that was fun!
Crazy Cheeky Girly Geek: Erik dark coloringgreeneyedmissy on December 20th, 2007 04:34 pm (UTC)
I plan to do a couple more of his characters as well when I get time.

Did I see your iPhantom one? Umm...*tries to kickstart brain*
winterlillies: heartphantomwinterlillies on December 20th, 2007 04:43 pm (UTC)
I've never put up the iphantom one! I actually made 2 of them. Let me go find them and I'll put them up for you. I like the second one you made-something about actually seeing a suit jacket.
Crazy Cheeky Girly Geek: ferriswheelsolitudegreeneyedmissy on December 20th, 2007 05:11 pm (UTC)
Cool, I'd love to see them!

And I like the second one also, I saw it on a tutorial, just shading in the jacket. It gives a very cool effect. Of course I found a better way to do that than her method. I sure wasn't gonna go through all that magic wand stuff, hate that. :D
winterlillies: pslovewinterlillies on December 20th, 2007 06:23 pm (UTC)
eh I had to ask my sister to send me what she had. LOL! I know I made a iRedDeath one but eh I can't find it. I played with abyssinia's tut. too when it was first posted. But mine are blah compared to yours! Could I request the second one you made as a header for me? :hopeful:

Crazy Cheeky Girly Geek: iGerrygreeneyedmissy on December 20th, 2007 06:28 pm (UTC)
Oh, those aren't so bad! I like them! And yes, I'll be glad to make a banner from the second iGerry. Just need to know the size of banner you need and if you want me to use the same color, same text, etc.
winterlillies: gossip maskwinterlillies on December 20th, 2007 07:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you. I think the picture one uses makes a huge difference on how things end up looking. I made two for my sister with her fave singer-Jason Mraz and those turned out nice. LOL!

For the banner-the same colors and text you have now (make it easy!) and could it be 750 x 320? Thank you!
Crazy Cheeky Girly Geek: erikunravelsgreeneyedmissy on December 20th, 2007 08:02 pm (UTC)
Alrighty, good. ;) I can do that and when I finish, I'll post it at crimson_iink, so that I can put it under a cut. So, be looking for it, it shouldn't be but about 10 minutes or so, I have the psd file up. :)

Melissa, those are really cool! I love them! And if I ever used them, I'd sure as heck credit you.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours!

Re: Cool!!
Thanks Ally! If you want, I'll make you one of Jason...or of Julian, if you still fancy him. :D

Merry Christmas to you too!

I have two questions for you: can I use one of the iGerry banners with credit to you and where are the tutorials for these at? :)
Crazy Cheeky Girly Geek: fuzzy anigreeneyedmissy on December 20th, 2007 09:13 pm (UTC)
Sure, you can use whichever one you want, I appreciate the credit. :)

The first tutorial was on abyssinia's LJ, not sure where now as its been a while, but you can check the archives and the second one was on icon_tutorial. Check there maybe a day or two ago, but be prepared, they have a ton of posts.
