Most of my favorite techniques are in this walk-through. Levels, Channel Mixer, Photofilter, Gradient, and Color Balance.

Assassin's Creed [1 - 66]
Hayden Panettiere [67 - 78]
Emma Watson [79 - 89]



The Assassin's Creed icons are pretty standard, while the Hayden and Emma are more experimental.

Enjoy )

Exposure is pretty much the Brightness/Contrast tool's raw counterpart. Learning it takes seconds.

Haven't iconed in a looong time. Thanks ZevranDragon Age for inspiring me again XD Lots of these are same-ish, but I figure someone might want 'em.

Wow, it's been a while )

Lots of Rogue Lady Hawke here for all your DA2 journaling needs. Yeah, I might have gone a little crazy with fraps, since this is only the first part of the demo.

Flemeth took an A level in badass, and considering she was already a dragon shape-shifter, that's saying something. I absolutely love her new look. Enjoy!

Yeah. You read that right. 124 Muthalovin' Varric icons. Fine dwarven chest hair included. And lots of Bianca. Crap, these took so long ;.; Anything to stay busy until March 8th, right? Right?

Nothing so fanciful, I assure you. )

OMG I finished them. YAY! The SFX were a bitch. They're higher contrast than I normally prefer, but I think it works for this set. Thanks a lot bright, stupid fire ;.;

Enjoy 'em.

I know this batch is so much smaller than the usual DA2 set, and being that this is Isabela's to boot, I am shamed. Really sorry, everyone. A combination of way too dark lighting, an unholy amount of blood spatters, and my shoddy skills pretty much doomed every single scene apart from this one. I tried, but in the end just couldn't manage it.

Fortunately, the few I did end up with? Probably my favorite yet. And, er, not just cause a kick ass pirate lady with pretty daggers is in them. Though it's mostly that. Yeah.

Oh, balls. )

So, this is the first batch of... I don't know. More. I've got 10 gigs of Fenris caps on my drive. No, I'm not obsessed. Why do you ask?

Bit by the icon bug. XD Also... why doesn't Garrus wear all black and a cape? Just askin'.

I love this rifle. )

Finally cleaned and optimized those Fenris caps. I've uploaded them to a gallery for anyone who wants to grab them.

Updated PixelCaps with 286 DAO Screencaps. Mostly Alistair & Zev, but some Morrigan and a couple of Sten. New icons soon? Very likely.

I wasn't sure I'd post the bulk of the Alistair icons, and even now I'm wondering if it's a good idea. When I was capping, I wanted to try a different sort of background, but the choice of location for the Ostagar set kind of bit me in the ass. They came out looking more like paintings with some sort of abstract texture background. Not the look I was going for. However, I don't want to throw out my 8th batch, so I'm biting the bullet in case someone out there wants 'em.

I really like the way the Morrigan set came out, though. That was a pleasent surprise.

I'm still working on a Zevran set. Keep an eye out for it. Maybe more Alistair, because I want another crack at him.

Okay. That sounded bad.

How do I celebrate the holiday season? Put some wings on Garrus! :D Got Paragon and Renegade flavored for all your Garrus influences.

It's, ah. It's just Garrus to you. )

There's... no Garrus in this post? Shocking! 0.0
I bring you an awesome thief and the good doctor, instead.

Hah-hah! )
