    Sure I can! I like specific themes/requests when making icons because I lack any sort of inspiration otherwise (which is why livejournal is great for icon-making, lots of themed challenges/contests).

    I'm still learning when it comes to icons. Mines aren't very good compared to some out there in the icon community (*points at @Lyri*). It's crazy how much effort and work goes into a 100x100 box. I'm obsessed with colouring and always seem to end up with very saturated reds/oranges and blue-ish tones. :D (I use selective colour and colour balance on photoshop and delete what I don't want).

    Thanks! :D
    Yeah, you have icons from so many different characters and Whedon shows! That must require inspiration. If I were making icons, I would probably just do the same characters over and over again. :p

    I think you're great! And looking at your recent icons compared to your older ones, I think you have improved. Those colors are really working for you though! Like the Kaylee and Saffron icons, which looked beautiful because of the saturated orange hair, or your current Gwen Raiden icon, which also looks amazing. The last time I used Photoshop was in 8th grade, so I don't know anything about that. ;)

    This is just a stupid Anya banner.

    And don't worry, @Carrie Hopewell, I'm still working on those icons. :)
     
    DeadlyDuo: That's good. Anya herself would be happy at that "Look Giles, my face is on the money!"
    Guy: LOL, this is the best thing ever!
    Spanish Flame: LOL!! Anya would love that !!

    Yes!!!! I love them all. :D The fourth one in particular is really interesting! Buffy's nose looks really cute in the first one. Hmm...which shall I use first? :p
     
    GwenRaiden: Aww, I'm glad you like them!

    Ooh, can I request something, then?

    Can you make a banner with Faith and Spike, that I could put next to my Buffy banner? Not anything shipper-y (I don't ship them, I just want a banner with them because they're two of my favorite characters), just Faith and Spike looking cool. Maybe instead of one regular-sized banner, you could make two half-sized banners (half the width of a regular banner, but same height), so that I could put one on each side of the Buffy banner (like, maybe Faith on the left and Spike on the right, or something like that). I think it could be cool if you made the banner/s out of comics panels (so that it could fit better next to my comics Buffy banner), but it's also great if you won't (and I don't think Spike has a lot of cool-looking panels in the comics anyway, the artists always struggle with his likeness). It really doesn't need to be anything especially intricate, just a shot of the character in a moment that says something about the character. Like Faith's face when she's like "Are you a murderer? cuz I am", or Spike's face when he's giving his monologue in 'Fool for Love', or something like that. But anything you'd do about Spike and Faith would be great!

    Obviously, no pressure. Only do it if you feel like it and if you got the time.:)

    I assume that "buttons" are like banners, but less wide? If so, that'd be perfect!:)
     
    GwenRaiden: Sure I can! You can have buttons on your signature along with your current banner, they can go at either side. So I could make one of Faith/Spike for each side of your banner at 150 pixels x 100 pixels.

    They all look excellent! As per usual :) What episode is the second icon from? Really love the Lilah and the second Angel icons. Btw, if you hadn't shown me that Dawn icon already, I would have assumed it to be of Buffy.
     
    GwenRaiden: Oh, I can't remember the episode, it is definitely ats s4 though! It's just Angel infront of a background :) Yeah, it does look like Buffy!

    Since 'tis the season, if anyone has any art requests, icons, banners or wallpapers (Whedonverse) I'll happily fill them as a gift to you. :)

    They may not be done in time for Christmas but I'll try my best.
