Hey.

I've made almost all my own icons, and I like making them. I'd like to make even more, because I've got ideas of some lovely Doctor Who ones, and I'm (in general) not finding ones I like. So I want to make my own.

I've got Photoshop CS2. I can make my own screencaps from the DVDs. I've learned how to make brushes, how to play with light levels and colors and stuff like that. I can generally get my image to look the way I want it to.

But I hate the way my text looks. I play with the different text styles, I've downloaded pixel fonts, I've looked at [livejournal.com profile] icon_tutorial -- and I still can't do the cool things with text that other people can. It always comes out looking grainy or out of place or. . . yeah.

So. Any suggestions?

I was growing dissatisfied with the way I did my Austen quote icons, and last night I decided to just redo the whole bunch. I also added a few more from Pride and Prejudice, which I've just finished rereading. I plan on rereading all her books and adding more icons as I find suitable quotes.

So, if anyone wants to gank these new prettified versions, feel free.

It's funny. I started with P&P, and was trying to decide which color would be good for that book. I eventually chose yellow, because it was "light and bright and sparkling." Then I did NA, and decided they needed to be pink, because Catherine is such a young girlish heroine. Then I did Persuasion, and decided on purple because it's such a serene color. And I realized that I'd inadvertently chosen rainbow colors corresponding to the order of publication!

So I decided to run with it. S&S became orange, MP green, and Emma blue. The letters I did in gray. I think they turned out quite nicely.
