Hello, everyone! It's been awhile since my last post, and a lot of interesting things happened. One of those things being that Photobucket completely imploded.


Rather than take the time to re-link all of the posts from two years ago, I've decided to provide you with a link to my 2016 Album on Imgur. Feel free to save/share any of the icons with credit to cool_spectrum and/or classic_shades.
I've revamped classic_shades in the hope that I can bury the posts with broken links and put out some brand new icons this year. If you'd like to help me out by leaving caps or series requests in a comment, I'd appreciate it! (But no spoilers from Steven Universe, please! I haven't seen the newest episodes yet.)

Well, this year has been full of unexpected twists and turns in RL. I didn't end up having as much time to icon as I wanted (much less deal with the ever tempermental Photobucket to upload them). That being said, I'm mostly proud of my results this year. Ideally, as we head into 2017 I'll have a little better management of my time so that I don't have to keep missing out on the amazing challenges that have been popping up here on LJ. I hope everybody will stick around to have fun with me~ Happy New Year, and all the best to you, my friends <3

As a big thank you to my followers here on classic_shades, I'm hosting a
special Christmas raffle as a way to spread some holiday cheer!

rules
Choose three numbers between 1 and 30. I’ll use Random.org to shuffle the numbers and pick winners. It’s first come, first served for numbers so if two people pick the same number the one who claimed it first will receive the prize.

prizes
THIRD PLACE: 3 icons
SECOND PLACE: 6 icons
GRAND PRIZE: 10 icons

Winners will be announced on December 30!

Trying to get back into iconning by signing up for a 20in20! I had a lot of fun revisiting a favorite series, Princess Tutu. It's easy to write this anime off because of the slightly lame (okay, very lame) name, but give it a chance because this is one of the most complex, emotional, and beautiful fairytales you'll ever watch.


what will you do now, Princess Tutu?Collapse )

This round for 20muses I tried some new techniques and I had a lot of fun interpreting the themes. Many of them didn't seem to be a good fit for the series I claimed, but pushing through and making it work was a great exercise of creativity, and ended up being really exciting.


it's time to do the right thingCollapse )
