About the Artist: My name is Jenn and I have been "playing" with graphics for about 4 years now. I started with MicroSoft Picture It! just making wallpaper collages, then I got MicroSoft Picture It! Platnum Publisher 2001 from my father and began doing wallpaper photomanips with the illusion options in the program and then making avatars for message boards. I then got Photoshop 6 about a year ago, but was too intimatated by it and didn't actually start playing with it until about April/May of this year, then about a month later, I got Photoshop CS and began learning how to use that and making more icons/avatars and began making wallpapers and banners/headers recently. I haven't had any formal training in the graphic arts and the majority that I have learned has been by trial and error, but what started it was a tutorial by spikesbint and I have been hooked ever since.
My rules are very basic... If you like my icons, please use!!! Credit is nice, but I won't whine about it. If you do credit: midknight_starr or mkstarr_icons Same goes with my brushes and textures, now that I have learned how to make my own!
Edit 09/04/2006: I do require credit on any stock photos that I take myself or for the icon bases, textures, or brushes that I make out of my stock, now that I am making them, because, I did these myself, I do not use anyone else's resources to make these things, so it is only my time and effort that goes into the stock photos and icon bases, textures, or brushes that will be posted, unless otherwise stated in the post
In Light of all of this promoting of stealing icons and bandwidth, I would really hate to make my Icon LJ a friends only community. I have stated that, unless I actually took the picture myself or made something totally from scratch NOT using any other resource (or screencaps/publicity pictures) other than MY OWN of MY MAKING, I do not require crediting.
Now Hotlinking is another story. Someone stealing someone elses bandwidth isn't right and can really mess things up for storing and posting to share. To me, it's like your neighbor rerouteing their powerlines to your house and using all of your power. That is totally not cool and is still stealing.
I would really hate to make this a closed community to save my bandwidth Thank you
Please, no hotlinking...hotlinking=stealing and that is wrong Any icons without text are NOT bases, DONOT alter in any way, unless otherwise noted as bases. If the post does not include the word BASE in it, then it is NOT a base Also DONOT claim any of my work as your own, that is also stealing and wrong
