Pics, Icons, Images Galore [Feb. 24th, 2006|09:57 am]
[Tags|, , , , , ]

This is my day off from work (I work this weekend *grumble*) and what do I do? I don't relax and watch mindless tv ;) I get inspired to make icons and images...

I know - I'm not an "artist" in the graphics/image-sense, but what the heck? I made two personal images - now located on my user ID lookup - one for H_E and one for HH. Kinda to "tie" me over until HH (which is the newer / growing / upcoming community) gets its own banner. Once it does, I will probably switch to the standard H_E Hufflepuff banner to go side-by-side with HH's banner.

HH has a little icon "challenge" (or is it "homework"?) going on right now. Make an icon for each house without using HP book/movie images. I thought I'd try - just to get my house some points - and here is my entry:

*note to self: Start brainstorming St.Patrick's Day theme fic for HH challenge/contest.

I also made some H_E banners for the sorting procedure. Since smammers is working on one inspired by my intro to the Hufflepuff common room, I tried to come up with a different un-related set. I thought this was cute...

*note to self: Don't forget to add border="1" to img since I didn't give it a border to begin with.

I like how Charlie Brown is indeed wearing the Hufflepuff colors :) "You're a good man, Charlie Brown!" :D And I just had to throw in Lucy's 5c remark ;)

Comments? Thoughts?

I LOVE your sorting set!

Funny, when I was very little (like 4 or 5) I basically thought I was Charlie Brown, mostly because I'm a total klutz. So yeah, I like having him for Hufflepuff.

And the Lucy with "the doctor is in" just cracked me up.

Feel free to use :) My dad got me "into" Peanuts (as well as Star Wars and Star Trek but that's a different topic), and Charlie Brown is so sweet and adorable - and he is smart too. But I figured Marcie would be the Ravenclaw of the group :)

mindless tv is kind of overrated.

then again, my attention span has been decreasing over the years, so it's got to be reallllly good or realllly bad to keep my attention.

The sorting icons are adorable.

another icon

excuse the coffee cup in the corner (it's part of the "saving" process since I'm trying out shareware)... I tried my hand at an animated gif.

Just because we're all multi-faceted, aren't we? :)
