Dear, Watchers!

The time has come and I have chosen the new community name and set up everything. I still need to work a little more on the userinfo profile by adding some examples, but everything else is pretty much set up.

So, infinite_muse was created 2009-01-13 22:12:34, and today 16th July it will deservingly set aside to "rest". I love this community, it brought me special moments, witnessed how I grew slowly from a stock icon maker to a fandom maker, it witnessed how much fun I am having with textures. It witnessed a couple periods of hiatuses and it even had the pleasure of hosting an Icon Fest. It slowly grew out to have 752 lovely, special watchers. I am truly grateful for every comment and positive, constructive criticism I have received over a little more than two and a half years. I am also grateful for those of you who have never commented, but still for some reason watched the place. Thanks goes for each one of you. infinite_muse will always be a part of me, and hopefully a part of you as well, and I am in no way deleting it, it is way too special for me for that, so it stays around with my past works, and you are welcome to browse around on it, as I will as well, from time to time.

So, now comes the moment of saying goodbye. So, goodbye to those of you who decide not to follow me to where I am going now. It has been a pleasure! :)

And for those of you who wish to continue the journey I am taking, please watch satine_violet. I was set on this name, maybe even from the beginning.
I am also keeping lavender_flow for a future cause, which I am not speaking yet of. The rest of the communities are up for grabs as I mentioned before, so if you grew to like one of the names, just comment and I will pass it down to you!

So, that is it, I suppose, for now, here.

satine_violet /// satine_violet /// satine_violet

Yours truly,
with love,
Lex

Hey!

Thank you for all your input, I think I love two of my ideas too much, I can't choose. They are satine_violet and lavender_flow. They both sound like me and my art and I am really torn which one to flow with. :x If someone could help me decide with pros and cons, would be really appreciated even knowing I should be able to make my mind up. Lol.

Also the rest of the community names are up for grabs if you want a fresh start too.
almond_grace
turquoise_art
violate_musings (It was an unintentional create..)

Thank you kindly,
with love,
Lex

Dear Watchers,

It is that time of the year that I think I want a fresh start. I love this community so much, and all of you watchers are truly special to me, but I think I want to build my "circle" again.

So, I came up with five different community names, and created all. My question is the following which one do you think would fit me and my art the best? I want to include you in the process. :)

satine_violet
lavender_flow
almond_grace
violate_musings <- okay this was unintentional, I meant to create violet, lol, but that is taken anyway. I don't think I want this one. Anyone?XD
turquoise_art

Of course if you have any other name ideas that you feel would fit me and my art better, and are free, please share. :) And at the end, when I choose my new community, the rest I created are really up for grabs.

Well, thank you in advance lovelies!
Take care and be well,
with love,
Lex

Dear Watchers!

I am updating with a new texture set. I loved making it and I have to say I am so back on making textures that I just finished two more sets today, but I am only posting one with one post, because that is how it feels right for me. :) I hope you will enjoy the textures. I appreciate any kind of feedback and would love to see them in use. :)

Dear, Watchers!

I kept being inspired this last two days to make icons, so here is another batch, a bit bigger than my usual, as it contains 30 icons. I have made Pride and Prejudice 1995 and 2005 icons, because there was a challenge at elite_four and after my four entries, I just kept iconing. And today I felt inspired to try my hand at some 500 Days of Summer icons, because both JGL and Zooey are lovely to icon! I appreciate your feedback. I hope you will enjoy some of the icons!

Hey!

So, today I sort of got myself into an iconing mood, and to my surprise I have made 14 icons in just one day... and they look different from my older stuff, I am quite pleasantly surprised. I am looking forward to your feedback! I am especially curious about whether the contrast and the sharpness are alright. Thank you. (I also added an icon I made for a challenge.) These are the very first icons in a great while.

Also, in my previous update I was positively surprised at how many of you are interested in a collab or an icon battle. It makes me feel welcome and warm. Thank you. I will reply to the comments tomorrow. :)

Anyhow on to the icons. I hope you will enjoy some.

Dear, Watchers!

I know that many of you are lovely, talented icon and texture makers yourself! I was wondering if any of you would be up to a small icon and texture collab/battle. I feel like getting back to iconing slowly, and I think a collab or a battle would help me with that, and a texture collab would be just plain fun to add to it.

So, anyone interested? :)

Take care and be well lovelies,
Lex

Hey!

So, for the first time in months I spent a couple hours in PS to create a new texture set. It was a bit weird at first, but I got the "hang of it" again, somehow. I am on my desktop computer again, so the vibrancy and the colours might seem a bit different. Will you please let me know what you think in your feedback? I would appreciate it, as I didn't do anything like this for so long, I feel a bit uneasy! Thank you!

Dear, Watchers!

Surprise, surprise! Who is here? :)
I have been gone for so long, but looking at my USB harddrive, it reminded me of my love for graphics, textures especially and made me realize I miss making them, so I decided to share a set I have had on me for months. I have been gone for 4 months, and I don't promise to make a full come-back, just a little notice maybe that for a while I am here. I hope you will enjoy this set, or try to. Also, I am quite curious what have you been up to? :)

Hello, dear Watchers,

I am writing this update to say a couple things and ask something.
So, firstly, I would like to say that these days I am not really inspired to make textures or icons or any other kind of graphic related goods. It saddens me, but well, it is how this is. I have created a texture set back in January, which I never got to share, so I think I will post that up one of the following days, maybe if I find other unposted sets I will share those too and set myself on a Hiatus.

For the Hiatus, I would like to ask, if there would be someone interested guest-posting here in my little community, fpr my dear watchers, to share something substancial with them while I feel uninpsired? If so, I would like a person whose interest have some of my own, and maybe could offer things I wasn't able to. :) Also, you would have to be approved by my dear watchers to post here, as it would be mostly for them and only partly to me. I think it is a nice idea, so if there is someone, who would like to guest-post at my community while I am on an indefinite hiatus, (someone whose graphics I know and well, probably adore too) would be most appreciated.

Take care and be well,
With love,
Lex
