I'M MOVING ON!! Come with me if you want + Texture set!

Hello,dears!



Time to bring out some big news! I am moving on!
I opened this community on January 16th of 2009,and for over 2 and a half years this place has been the home of my graphics,the place where i came to share with you my creations,even if at times this was pretty much stopped,still i love this "baby" as much as i did in the same day i created it or even more and so far i have been a proud mama..or owner. Still life changes and other things happen and at some point we all need a fresh start to give a new step ahead and for that to happen i firmly believed and felt within me that it was time to let go of this.I don't mean letting go of doing icons,but letting go of this community and start something new. In this way i created A Cup of Graphics (acupofgraphics) , my new home where you are more then welcome to,more then welcome to watch and i know i will see quite a few of you in there,supporting me in this new phase. If you decide to don't come,no hard feelings,i understand that my graphics no longer interest you or you really don't want a new community to follow up. Said this i thought it would be nice to give you a little present so i leave you with a texture set.Not much or great but it's a little something that you more then deserve for standing up with me for over 2 years of work, over 500 people...wow,i'm still astonished!

I will honestly miss all of you who decide not to come with me,but i will still care for you,whoever you are,and knowing the new community is open to all public,you can always pass by and say hi...maybe even grab a few things!!
The things i witnessed as a maker,the comments that made me grow,the constant learning,developing,experimenting..thank you all for standing by all that time,even when things were not as nice and bright!


So,moving on!!! Let's get to A Cup of Graphics!

6 Large Textures...of doom!!!

Hello,dears!


I really have no flying idea what on earth is wrong with me,maybe i am simply sadomasochistic or just love to torture myself opening PS and trying things that go completely out of my control and what i'm used to.And today was one of those moments,it lead me to nearly tears,not to mention i felt extremely depressed,but that is quite common lately and everything mixed up gives me,one big crying emotional baby!
Well,i ended up with 6 large textures,something i haven't done in way too long and it's not like riding a bike,not at all,it's almost as if you had a strike of amnesia and forgot all basics,it's hard,it takes sweat,tears and blood and a hell load of other things that don't need to be mentioned.
Probably it's not worth it,doesn't pay off but here they are.

26 Icons of Shame

Hello,dears!

I am about to get rid of 26 icons,per say! Let's just put it this way,i did them a while back and i thought they were not so bad at the time now i have a little different perspective and knowing that my trash can was enoughly fed through the past days i thought not to give it the pleasure of eating up my icons but sharing them with you instead,as it was the first porpose of them! So before i move to more icon making...i think,i will share this 26 icons batch with you,maybe someone will like them and see in them what i saw a while back! Who knows?

Request Icons!!!

Hello, dears!

I have been quite busy, real life has been a pain in the ass and this summer is everything but a summer,honest to god.The only hot normal summer days came by this week and now i can't go to the beach because of a hell load of problems,and we are near the middle of August and i haven't set foot in the beach yet this year,which is imensly weird and not normal as i live like 10 kilometers away from it and love it imensly.Guess i just have to suck it up and wait.
Any how,i managed to end up the icon requests, the icons may not be brilliant but at least they got my creative juices flowing a little,let's see if i can pick up a nice pace and don't let it all fall back to the shelf again.

Ohh La Light! - Texture Set

Hello,dears!

So,it's just for me and 100 other people that LJ is going nuts or are we all suffering of the same need to kill this site because it has been constantly down for days now? Seriously,if i can access one single page for a couple minutes every 24 hours that's what i call a miracle.
Anyhow i believe i can finally post what i have prepared for 2 days now,and that is textures.The set i told you that i had to find a way to give a turn and make something decent with,which i managed to do.They are acceptable and very much possible to use for icons as i tried them myself and i promise they work.Well,that is,if my word counts for anything!

30 Icons

Hello, dears!

30 more icons before i start with a new batch and end the requests! Let's see if i can change a few things and try out others i may have in mind when it comes to graphics. I will also try to make more textures in the next days.Started a set a couple days ago but i'm not exactly fancing the way it's turning,still,let's see if i can pull something decent out of it.

Bring me those images!!! - Request

Hello,dears!

I had this idea of trying to put my creative juices working and i need your help for it,so i thought,let's go with requests,what could be a better idea? So,here it goes,a request post,not massive but i hope you understand that i need baby steps to get myself creating again,or at least trying.

After all this time...

Hello,dears!

I know that you must be shocked that i'm posting after all this months.Basically and making a quick and truthful excuse,i have been busy with real life,mainly my first year of college and i was very much away from any graphic making because i had no time,patience or inspiration to do so,that's why my community has been so long without a proper update.
Honestly i thought i would never get back around here,i still don't have inspiration although i'm in vacations and have time,all the bare skills i had are gone and i just feel a great deal of frustration every time i even slightly try to do something.I can't create anymore,i do not know if this will be only temporary (long temporary actually) or if this is something that came and will stay,or like,gone forever.
I did a few icons,a couple wallpapers,everything for people who won auction from me and today i made textures,which are the cause of my post.I don't find them good or anything close to it and i doubt anyone will actually care.I'm not in anyway fishing for compliments or people pitying me,seriously,i much rather have honest opinions,i won't take it hardly and i can always focus myself in many other things.So,this will be the decision post,i think i can call it like that.
