small batch icons is dedicated to the idea that less is more.

Much like how the restriction of a hundred words can turn a drabble into a work of art, so our theory is that a posting limit of five icons makes the selected images shine.

For icon makers, this makes coding posts way easier. Plus, there's the bonus of getting to share icons more often, hot off the press.

For icon shoppers, it's the ultimate in browsing convenience.

come on by =)

I created [community profile] 10variations for Dreamwidth because it was an old concept from Livejournal that I used to love and many people felt inspired by, and I thought it would be nice to recreate it for a better, safer and cleaner platform like Dreamwidth :3

It's a community where you post a batch of 10 icons each time, made out of the same image but all different (according to a set of themes). It's best if you look at the profile to understand the concept! I hope you will like it and participate, I will participate also :3

Attention, icon makers!

Dreamwidth has a huge RP community, and a lot of people use other characters as "actors" to play their original characters. With that in mind, [community profile] pb_library was created to as a place for people to post and/or search for icon bases to use for roleplay journals - including manga bases and icons of live-action actors and actresses - as well as tutorials on how to edit and colour icons.

Happy hunting!

[community profile] comicbook_icons, well, does pretty much what it says on the tin. Whether you make comic book icons or are looking for some, it's the place to be.

We've also got an Icon Request Fest going through this weekend, in case there are any comics you can't find icons for.

If you're interested in making icons come join [community profile] nexticon!

It's a very relaxed challenge. There are no set rounds or deadlines since it's a pass-it-on challenge, i.e. you make an icon inspired by the icon posted before you. The subject of your icon can be anything, fannish or non-fannish, the inspiration can likewise be anything, style or subject or colour or what-have-you. Voting happens once there has been at least fifteen entries posted or three weeks since the last voting. Come and join the fun!

While [community profile] fandom_icons is great, I've been wanting a community to specifically post comic book icons for a while now. And so [community profile] comicbook_icons happened. I hope you all stop on by :)

It seemed like a shame that DW had no Shakespeare community; thus, [community profile] thegreatglobe is available for your delectation. I've just posted open reaction posts for the two aired episodes of The Hollow Crown, but please please please feel free to talk about any Shakespeare or Shakespeare-derivative thing you so please!
