Icon post 10

Ah yes, I've finally hit the double-digits. XDDDD And to post these, a mixture of old and new icons, when there's an icon critique meme floating about, I can only say I'm a closet masochist. ^_^;;

I finally realized how much I like to chuck textures and character cg images together, so I decided to make one huge post of icons with this style. I might have posted some of these icons before but I'm not too sure...

Icons include:
♥ 03 x FFVI
♥ 38 x FFVII (includes characters from original FFVII, CC, AC, and Itadaki)
♥ 22 x FFVIII
♥ 05 x FFIX
♥ 30 x FFX and FFX-2
♥ 04 x FFXI
♥ 13 x FFXII
♥ 01 x FFXIII Agito
♥ 13 x Miscel FF monsters
Total = 129

Teasers:

Icon 6 is actually a combination of icon 10 and 11. Highlight icon 6, and you'll see icon 11 underneath. :D

I admire you for being able to make the patterns/textures in the background work and absolutely fit. You did an awesome job on this batch, keep it going! ♥

I stole 2 from FFVII, and 23 and 24 from FFX (though auron is calling my naaame).

Adorable!Cloud and Tidus are too adorable. Much love on this batch! :D

I thought you might like the Auron icon! XDDD

I love the way you put textures and images together! Though, in this batch, I notice that some of the textures sort of... over power the icon? Like this one, for example. I think you had a texture set to Multiply/Darken in there?

But anyways, like I said, you're really good with using textures as backgrounds. Yanking some of these icons and will credit if used :D
fantasia0829
Aug. 24th, 2008 02:49 pm (UTC)
Erm yeah, I put the texture on multiply on those icons. Kinda like the icon that way, actually. XDDD

Thanx for the concrit in any case! :D

Ah, I see. Different makers, different taste, I guess. Because I like my subject in an icon to be more contrast and brighter when it comes to those kinda icons XDD
fantasia0829
Aug. 25th, 2008 07:04 am (UTC)
Yups, I think so. :D I can't really explain why I chose to make the icons that way myself; it's just a feeling. XD

These are all so pretty! :D I love all of the Cloud ones. Your bright coloring is really nice. ♥

Aug. 24th, 2008 02:53 pm (UTC)
Thanx! :DDD To be honest, I'd seriously considered deleting the bulk of the icons here cuz while they were fun to make, not all of them were really pretty on the eyes... ^_^;; But I'm glad someone likes the coloring!

CATUARS = PICKLES. OMNOMNOMN.

*ahem* Lovely, as always. 8D The world needs more FFIX icons! WHERE IS THE VIVI LOVE. WHERRRRE.
I need to go to bed. xD
fantasia0829
Aug. 24th, 2008 02:54 pm (UTC)
Actually, I'm pretty sure I got the pickle = cactuar idea from you. XDDDD So consider that an icon made for you? XDDD

Ha ha ha... I don't have a lot of Vivi art on my computer, so... XD
rainbowserenity
Aug. 26th, 2008 12:55 am (UTC)
Dude, really? xDD AWESOME! Good to know that I inspire, uh, pickles. Or something. xD

There needs to be more on the interwebs! Heck, there just plain needs to be more FFIX love. That game is sooo underrated. T_T
fantasia0829
Aug. 26th, 2008 03:32 pm (UTC)
XDDD One day someone will splice the genes of a cactus and a pickle and name it a cactuar. I would totally buy one and name it after you. XDDD

I dunno... Probably it's because the characters were kinda super-deformed and more anime-style, so it's not as popular as the other titles and Zidane doesn't have a fan club as big as Cloud or Squall's. D:
rainbowserenity
Aug. 27th, 2008 08:38 pm (UTC)
That would ROCK. xD Why hasn't some scientist/FF nerd done that yet?! >D

Sigh, probably. It's depressing. It's totally my favorite FF game. T_T They just need to stick Zack in there and it would be perfect. ;D
fantasia0829
Aug. 28th, 2008 07:44 am (UTC)
Cactuars should so exist so we can raise them as pets. :DDD And we wouldn't be able to eat pickles ever again lest they see it and it'd be their version of a horror movie. XDDDD

Aug. 24th, 2008 08:44 am (UTC)
xD Your icons are simply so squee-invoking and awesome!!! Especially love the Cactuar "PICKLE" icons!! ^____^ Made me all nostalgic for a loooong moment (in addition to squealing at t3h cuteness). Taking a few, will credit when used!! =D
fantasia0829
Aug. 24th, 2008 02:57 pm (UTC)
I've always thought cactuars are half-pickle, half-cactus ever since someone pointed it out to me. XDDDD

And thanx! :D

God I still love the Ehrgeiz art. I wish I'd never sold that shitty excuse for a game. :/
fantasia0829
Aug. 25th, 2008 07:07 am (UTC)
I know. :D Ehrgeiz was only good for the art though... the game was kinda lacking, in my opinion. ^_^;;

Aug. 25th, 2008 07:09 am (UTC)
WHY? BECAUSE ZACK WAS CLOUD WITH A DIFFERENT HAIR COLOUR?

OR WAS IT BECAUSE THE ONLY ONE THAT HAD AN ENDING OF A SORT WAS SEPHIROTH AND IT WAS JUST SHIT SPLICED TOGETHER FROM FFVII?

...it had such potential. :'[
fantasia0829
Aug. 26th, 2008 03:29 pm (UTC)
AH YEAH, THAT WAS PROBABLY IT. TO THINK I GOT SO EXCITED WHEN I REALIZED PART OF THE FF7 CAST WAS IN THE GAME. DDDDD:

Ohh you posted! But why didn't I see you cross-post to icon communities? Or maybe I just missed them? XD;
Anyway, these are pretty. Your icons are really vibrant. And you're good at using those patterns! I esp like #24 of the FF7 set, #2 of the FF8 set, #16 of the FF10 set, #2 of the FF12 set. And the ones from XI are very pretty too :D
Also~ chocobo love lol. Yay cactuar and fat chocobo♥ (omg I love that dude XDD)
fantasia0829
Aug. 26th, 2008 03:41 pm (UTC)
Ha ha, yeah, after a couple of months... How do you guys manage to post so frequently? XDDD Posting icons tires me out! ^_^;; And yeah, I cross-posted to a couple of icon comms... weird.

Thanx~~~ #2 of the FF12 set is one of my personal faves. It's Fran. How can she look bad? XDDD The chocobos too! I think they're the one of the best things to come out of the FF series. ♥

Sephy's mine bwahahahahahahaha!!!! *runs off cackling*

I'm keeping lots (possibly to ogle at as I'm lazy aout updating images...) with credit of course :)
fantasia0829
Aug. 26th, 2008 03:34 pm (UTC)
Eh, but isn't Sephy like... Cloud's/insert name of the other half of your preferred ship? XDDD

Thanx! :D

Well, I'd share him with Cloud, but only because they're pretty together.

Wow. I love them all! I think you've done an awesome job, and the whole cartoon look is so cute. I even like the Aerith ones, which is saying a lot since she's not my fave character. Anyway, great icons and I will borrow a few from each FF. Will credit when used. Thanks!

I'm only ohhh, about a year late, but ! I don't think I've ever been so excited over an icon as I am the Cid one here. It's exactly what I've been looking for. ♥

Gorgeous patterns and textures. These are really pretty.

Snagging 15 & 17 from the FF8 batch and, holy mackerel, Shiva. Thanks so much for making these. Will credit when I use 'em!
