Icon Journal: iconosphere
Experience: I've been making icons for a little over three years, however, I actually began developing a keen interest about one year ago.
Programs: Photoshop Elements 2.0, Photoshop CS, Photoshop ImageReady CS
Known weakness(es): Oh, where to begin? I suppose my biggest weaknesses would be my animations and mini-movie, as I absolutely despise them. Truth be told, I'm surprised I actually have this many. I'm afraid my icons are not all too creative, as I typically get inspiration and ideas from others' works. Also, I have a terrible habit of reusing past ideas. I suppose that's partially to do with my lack of creativity, as well as my constricted (for a lack of a better word) subject matter. (Wow, did that even make any sense?) (Edit: Oh, and apparently, I fail at filesizes. T____T)

Experience: I want to say about two years in PSP7 now...but I'm not too sure xD; It's been so long, the time just melds together into one big glob.
Programs: PSP7, JASC Animation
Known weakness: I REALLY <3 vivid color icons, and it's really starting to become prominent in my style. Because of this, I don't make many animated icons (which includes minimovies), because it ravages the poor things -_-;
Icons: yeyeyey for narrow-mindedness?!Collapse )

Who started this community?

Who maintains it?
kiniro_ryu, waka_laka and elevation.

What was the original idea behind it?
My original idea was to create an icon community of good, but not quite 'elite' icon makers.
We run roughly the same way some elite communities run but we aren't quite as picky.

Does that mean that icon makers who are accepted at elite communities can't apply?
Of course they can apply. We aren't going to stop them because they're accepted at elite communities.

How long will it take before I'm accepted/rejected?
It generally won't take more then 7 days. Sometimes people don't have time until the weekend and if you submit on sunday night there may night always be any votes until saturday for example. Which is why we ask you to wait 7 days.

Are Tiny Text icons allowed as 'Textless' icons?
Yes, but please no more then two tiny text icons and you must have at twice as many purely textless icons.

What if one letter is used as decoration, would that class as textless?
No because tiny text is unreadable, a decorative letter on the other hand is still a letter and still technically readable.

My question isn't answered here
Leave a comment here and I or one of the other mods will answer it.
