Sooo...once upon a time I used to make graphics, but I haven't seriously attempted anything in at least a year...possibly longer. And now I'm kinda missing it - especially icon making. I've dabbled a bit here and there in that time frame, but it pretty much always resulted in a hideous OMG!WTF mess. Yeah, so I need practice. A LOT of practice, lol.
And so what do I decide to do in order to get back into the swing of things? Enter a bunch of icontests so that I may embarrass myself publicly with my craptastic icon disasters! Yes, self, that sounds like a brilliant plan. *eye roll*
I swear, I don't even have a clue how to make an icon anymore. The styles and trends have changed so much since I last made one. I used to be semi-kinda-sorta decent at it, but now? Yechhh.
Oh, well. I'm hoping this mass humiliation will result in me finally remembering how to make a decent icon. *crosses fingers*
