Icon Post [13] - Leftovers of 2010

Blu making an update? IMPOSSIBLE

I figure I should have a clear out and just get these things I made last year out of the way. Hopefully from this point on, we'll have more updates. :D I've really been neglecting this poor little icon community.

• 88 icons
-36 sketch icons.
-44 checkerboard icons (for lack of a better name).
-8 misc icons.


This post also includes four lj/twitter background tiles and six profile codes.

Black/White spoilers for three Pokémon! Be careful!

♫ All of these were drawn by me, of course. :D Requests aren't really open at the moment, but eh.

NOTES:
♪ Amazing quality, I know. These were all drawn ages ago, on a tiny 100x100 canvas and zoomed in. I think the next time I do these, I'll have to do them at 300x300 or something so that they're a bit better.
♫ These were all originally part of little background images. Incidentally, they're all coming up right now!



LJ/TWITTER BACKGROUND IMAGE TILES

Basically, you can use these images as the background for your livejournal or twitter account. For twitter accounts, you click this thing here:



And then you click on "Design". After that, click on "Change background image", and upload the one you want to use. Make sure you set it to "tile background", or it won't look right!



Save it, and you're done! Sometimes twitter lags in updating things, in my experience, but it should change eventually.

As for setting them as your livejournal's background image, I will include a code for doing this with each image. Basically, go to Journal --> Journal Style on the livejournal bar thing at the top of the page. Find the "customize your theme" option, and click it. Click on "Custom CSS", and then paste the code in your custom stylesheet box and save it. With a bit of luck and magic, the background image will work!

Sometimes the Custom CSS thing won't show up, or the background image won't work well with the style you have for your journal. All I can really recommend is just changing the style template you have, or changing the colours of the layout. Some styles also let you change the width of the layout, which could help you to see the background a bit better.

Complicated stuff, huh? When it works right, it looks good, though. Just look at bluicons's layout. :D

Anyway, here are the backgrounds!

Eon tiles





Pikachu tiles





Reshiram tiles





Zekrom tiles





If you have any problems with these, I'll try my best to help you, but I don't know how much help I'll actually be.



PROFILE CODES

Codes you can use in your profile to spiff it up a bit. Just copy and paste one of these into your "edit profile" box thing, replaces the images and text where necessary, and there you go!

You can actually edit these as much as you want, as long as you make sure to link to the original art and bluicons. Replace the background image, change around the text, add in those little friendslist icons people have, whatever. :D If you're using other peoples's's icons on these, make sure to credit them! Like have an "icon 1", "icon 2", etc. linking to their icon journals.

There's Pokémon sprites here because with icons it makes it look like Red's hat is hovering a few centimetres above him. You don't want that, right? You can replace the images with anything you want, anyway.



Look at all this cute!

SO CUTE. The interests and moves were swapped to fit in with the image more. Of course, you can do whatever you like.

It's ???!



And that's all.

WAIT NO IT ISN'T four extra icons!



The art for the last one is from here.

edit: ...haha oh wow I forgot four more things. You can tell I haven't done this in a while!



I made all the pixel art for these myself.

That's really it.

REMEMBER!
♥ Please credit bluicons or bluwiikoon if you use any of these!
♥ Try not to direct-link the icons, and upload them to your own server or image host.
♥ I'm always open to any suggestions or comments you may have.
♥ Thanks for looking!


Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year's, everyone!
