Welcome to
Graphic Whores

This is a community for all the graphic whores out there. It's for people that make icons, layouts, banners, buttons, graphic art etc. with a graphic program. If you love making graphics or just like to look at graphics this community is for you! This is a drama-free community. Please read the rules before you join! We try to make this as drama-free as possible, no demanding credit, because, really, unless the base icon is YOUR original art, you can't claim credit for something you merely manipulated. This doesn't mean people can come in and take all they want and not feel they SHOULD give some kind of credit, as icon makers do deserve some respect for their manipulations and creations, but, we really don't want the drama of people crying thief and fighting in here please. There's other communities that don't mind this sort of thing, so if this is how you deal with people, take it there please. Thank you!

Sincerely, The Mods

So i havent updated on here in awhile. I finally got my computer fixed from only 16 colors, and now i have 256 *which is what it should have been* I can NOW use PSP instead of just animation shop. *ANYWHO*
Im learning how to make blends, and so i thought i would share my first blend. Its not the best, but i dont think its to shabby for the first blend i've done :)

Feedback is REALLY nice! Thanks-

Yeah, this is a funny combination if I do say so myself. Van Wilder Text icons and Keria Knightly icons. Isn't life grand? I thought so too. Just remember to read the rules and do not forget to enjoy. ♥ Lindsay

subject: Questions about contest 3..Bondage #1

Okay..first off I did put in the rules about animating or not in the green print. I put it there after I was asked about it. I didn't put in the EDIT part.

Please be patient with me as this is only the third contest and I am trying to work out all of the bugs.

I used to do contests in this community a long time ago. Not very many, however.
I have two very young kids and they take most of my time. But, I am never too far away from my computer.

The base was too big. I don't know why because I have made an icon in the past with that base so I must of re-size it without knowing it was too big in the first place. My apologies.

So, let me try this again..

Contest 4..Bondage Base Workup #1


1. You may make up to two icons..no more.
2. No cropping of the icon.
3. No other images is to be put with the icon.
4. It may be animated or static.
5. You may use gradients, text brushes, texture brushes. You may animate them.

Icons must be in by Sunday, November 6th. Voting will begin on the 7th. Voting will end on Friday, November 11th. at noon Pacific Time.

Winners: First Place
Second Place

Good luck guys and lets get a good turn out!

Edit//When you do a base workup you only use the base..do not insert other pictures with it unless it is a Brush. This means that you are not using a regular picture..It is a brush like anyother brush. If it is hard to understand then just don't do it.
You may not resize the image also.

subject: When will the voting end?

Because I know how it feels to be anxious about when the voting is going to end..there is not reason to drag it out.

Voting will end tomorrow at 12 noon Pacific Time.

Unless the voting is really weird I will have votes in for a day in a half for two days.

Excellent Job Guys! These are all awesome icons. :D I will be announcing the new contest tonight.

And, if you are wondering why I haven't been able to type well, like misspelling words..I can't move my left ring finger. There is something wrong with my joints in there to the palm of my hand. Geez, I'm only 33!

Finish up your voting for every one just tunning in now and tommorow morning.

You guys are all awesome!!
