Welcome to kaitoubutterfly an icon and graphic's journal owned and maintained by shadowvitani. This is where I will be posting various icons and graphics made by me. (And even taking requests now and then)
And remember credit is appreciated! I'm not going to hunt you down and make sure your crediting quite frankly I don't have the time or energy to do something like that. I'm also not going to friends only this icon journal either. Friends Only icon journals annoy me. If you're that scared of people stealing you stuff don't post it on the internet. And speaking of credit I should be a good girl and say my brush credits are here
1. If you're going to take something please comment and tell me what number(s) you're taking. It helps me know which styles are good and which aren't so good.
2. Also credit! Why? Because it's fair trade. I make the icon and you credit in exchange for using it. Hey I'm not asking you for money I'm just asking you either type shadowvitani or kaitoubutterfly in the key words.
3. Don't modify my icons. I don't make bases so there. Thus the icons I post aren't yours to alter unless I say you can. If you're talented enough to take and customize an icon I made then you are certaintly talented enough to make an icon on your own. Therefore no modifying my stuff.
4. Friend me and I'll friend you back. Friending my icon journal is a good thing. Though this icon journal isn't FO the request posts usually are. I'm picky like that. I only do requests for friends you want a request you friend the journal. Again it kinda goes back to the fair trade thing. Plus :D Me likey friends.
Why yes I do take requests. Though not all the time. Usually if I'm feeling bored or in an icon slump I'll make a post that says I'm taking them. This post is Friends Only though. Like I mentioned in the rules I only make icons for friends of this journal. (So add the journal silly!)
Of course a request natrually means I'm making an icon for you, but I shouldn't have to find the image and decide what the icon says. I'm seriously probably just as lazy as you are and if I'm doing you a favor I don't like to be doing all the work. Simple as that. All I ask if you provide me with an image, (A good image! Not some skimpy 150x150 image that gives me no rom to actually work) and what you want on the icon.
Also credit! If I make you a requested icon I expect you to credit. Nothing will irritate me faster than to find out that I took the time to make you something and you couldn't take the time to give me credit for it.
Icontest are awesome! Icon makers and icon users alike should all join icontests that suit their intrests. It's a great way for icon makers to test their skills and maybe even learn some new tips or tricks along the way. Even if you don't make icons joining and just voting on a regular basis rocks as well. GJ has some fabulous icontest communites. Most of which I'm a part of. The moderators are all awesome there as well so they are worth checking out!
