Icons of 2006!

Okay, to those of you who are new to samiamicons this is something I do every year. It's a way for me to clear out all my old icons, share the icons I've used this year with you guys, share some icon makers, and satiate my OCD... under the cut, are all the icons I've used in the past year. Yay?

Icons of 2006Collapse )

Please give appropriate credit to the maker of the icon, they worked hard on these and I know they would appreciate credit. Also, don't hotlink from me. That's just evil.

Happy New Year's guys! I've got different icon ideas swimming around so we'll see what happens.

Okay, this will probably be the last icon post for a while. At least that's what I'm telling myself... probably won't happen because I've been feeling very creative lately. Of course, it's another Panic! post I have for you today, don't hate me!

Love me because there's a lot of Spencer oriented icons this time. Yay! SPENCER LOVE!


26 icons, I'm obsessedCollapse )

I'm beginning to think I should make a Panic! section the same way I did LOST and Harry Potter.

Usual drill applies, comment, credit, and don't hotlink or else Brent will come back! And none of us want that... do we?

I'm taking a break from cleaning my apartment since I have a new roommate moving in and I'm going home for a little bit before she does. So I'm here and posting another tutorial. Yay? Yay.

it's me againCollapse )

This technique is great for adding fun and bright colors to your icons without making them too contrasting or bright. Play around with the Hue opacity on Step #8.

Other icons made with this tutorial/technique:


As for what's next, don't really know... it'll be a surprise now, won't it?

I know, another update so soon! Another Panic! update of all things! But really, these guys are just constantly begging to have icons made of them...


23 icons, 2 FO BannersCollapse )

-comment, credit, don't hotlink and I'll try and keep this steady pace of icon making.

What's next? Another tutorial. Hooray!

Big Red! Or should I say Bright Red?

I've been bored and restless so I've been on an icon making spree. My next post will be another Panic! one, but until that one is up I made an icon tutorial...


Going from to
Follow the cut!Collapse )

This technique is especially good for icons with red in them and emphasizing that color, along with brightening skin tones and bringing out contrast.

And, like I said, there will be another Panic! post and then probably another tutorial and then... who knows? Bye guys!

So guys, here's a new fandom of icons I'm posting here. Panic! At the Disco. If you're a fan, or even if you're not a fan, I still hope you enjoy these icons.


what are you really going to do about it?Collapse )

You know the usual drill:
Comment and Credit but Don't Hotlink or else the boys will ditch their instruments for dance moves! Quel horreur!

The Icons Before Halloween
by Sam (samiamagirl)
at October 28th, 2006 (01:02 am)

So I got bored designing my postcards to send out to agents and casting directors, and instead decided I would make some Nightmare Before Christmas icons to share with you. Celebrating the re-release of one of the best movies ever in 3D.


13 iconsCollapse )

--Please remember to comment and credit
---Don't hotlink or you will be fed to Oogie Boogie!

Cat Cats.
by Sam (samiamagirl)
at May 3rd, 2006 (05:14 pm)

I know what you're thinking... another announcement post without any icons. Well, this isn't an announcement post, and I do have icons! 13 to be precise. Cat icons to be even more specific!

Not to disappoint you though, this may be the last icon post for a while again. May be, mind you. Now... on to the kitties!


No. 3 is actually my cat. Ain't she cute?Collapse )

---Please remember to comment and credit.
----Don't hotlink either! Or I shall sic Castaway on you, don't let those baby-blues fool you. She can be a vicious little sucker.

So, with the exception of a few minor alterations still left to do, the major changes to the journal have been made. So if you read these entries from your friends page, please go check out the new look of my icon journal! If you're a Newsies fan you're bound to appreciate it.

Now. Sleep.

Just droppin' by.

Hey guys, just stopped by to let people know that I'm still alive and to also point out that I'm in the middle of making changes to the journal, so don't freak out too badly. Slowly but surely I'm changing it to a Newsies theme. I also thought I'd give you a little update (in case people actually care) about what's going on with the icon-making business.

First and foremost, school is what's mainly keeping me away from making any icons. I'm pretty much there all day and then I come home and have to do more school work. Also, at the beginning of April I got a new lap top so I had a lot of transferring of files to do and had to get a lot of programs again. I'm re-acquiring a lot of editing tools I use to make my icons, so that's another big problem.

But no worries. When I was transferring files I realized there are a bunch of cat icons I forgot to post, but had ready and made, so I'll be trying to get those up in the coming days, as well as changing the look of the community.

There's probably going to be many Newsies icons in the future along with the usual batch of HP and LOST amongst other fandoms when I have the time.

So that's where everything stands. If you really want to know all the dirty details of my busy life you can always read my personal LJ, but it's actually not that exciting. Hopefully I'll be back soon with some new icons for you. Just don't get your hopes up that it's going to be a regular thing, lol
