Resource post

Us with Nichelle Nichols at Fedcon
So I'm starting iconing - again and this time for real I hope (lots of thanks to John_Scorpy who suggested some very helpful tutorials which already improved my icons and will hopefully lead to even better results in the future)! And because I've always been someone to do as she's told I'm making a resource post to credit all those who made the gorgeus textures I'll hopefully be using a lot in the future, just before uploading the first few icons I made using said textures.

I guess I'll just edit this post a lot, because I'm definitely planning on snurching more textures. I love playing with them!

Thanks so much! I'm thinking I need to bite the bullet and buy Photoshop.

I'm flagging your message so I can go back to it. :)

I can't believe how glad I am to read this!!! It's always my biggest pleasure to be able to get people more into the world of iconing, and I'm super happy if those tutorials were of any help. Can't wait for the results :D

Haha, my resource post is almost longer than the Bible and I keep editing and editing it. I LOVE TEXTURES :) You have some great ones here too. Ella's textures are gorgeous and spice uo any icon.
