Hey y'all,

Just wanted to let you know that we're trying to reinvigorate pickmybest.livejournal.com.  If you're a maker looking for concrit, praise or general advice on what works and what doesn't please check out the community.  I've been one of the mods for a while and have kind of let it fall into disarray, but, thanks to some new and old co-mods, we're trying to get it up and running again.  So please, please, please consider posting. 

Basically, you post a set of icons and other members look at them and tell you what their favorite 5 icons, in order, are.  I've found it so incredibly useful in the past, and would really love to see it reach the place it was in before.  (It used to be a very, very active and popular comm, apparently.)

Anyway, check it out here.  I promise that, if you post there, I'll definitely comment on your post :)

Icon Resources

My resources can be found in my delicious bookmarks here, in my LJ memories here, and in my resources filter here .  If you see a resource I've used of yours and I haven't credited you, I am so, so sorry and I hope that you will contact me so that I can add you to my list of resources.  I hope to better organize my resources in the near future.

What a wonderful world this would be...Collapse )

Difficulty: Medium-Hard
Translatable: Yes. The 'Effects' part is definitely translatable, and the 'Coloring' part is translatable to any program that has Channel Mixer.

-Coloring includes Channel Mixer, Difference layer and Auto-Color.
-Effect includes the Polygonal Lasso selection tool (though pretty much any basic selection tool on any other program should work) and Layer Effects.
Sure, fine, whateverCollapse )</div></div></div></div>

TITLE:  Snore
PAIRING: Riley/Greg
GENRE: Romance
SUMMARY:  Riley reminisces on silence and not-quite-silence while Greg is away at a conference.  And, when it comes down to it, she misses the way he snores.  PG interpretation for KinkBingo. 

Nobody sleeps the way you do, making those cute whisper-sniffing snores.Collapse )
