elvea_aure @ elvy_inc (formerly elicons)
For those of you who don't know me yet: I'm Elvy, and I make icons. Am I special? Of course I'm special.
...just like everyone else. -_-"
This is where I post my icons / brush sets / tutorials / whatever graphics-related entries from now on. elicons will no longer be updated. One moment's silence please...
Elvy's Icon Award. There are plenty of icon makers out there who do not get the recognition they deserve. These are people who win little or no awards, but should be getting awards for their work. It could also be people who get nominated often enough, but never actually win anything. It's not going to be awarded on regular basis (that would cost me too much time), but whenever I see uncredited talent, I will hand out my Shiny New Award of Doom, and make a post here to put the maker in the spotlight. This award, of course, is defined by my personal taste, so if you get it, you should feel special.
This doesn't mean that 'famous' iconisers don't stand a chance of getting my award. If you're famous, it probably has a reason, and if I like your work I'll be fair enough to accredit that. I'm just trying to put all the small iconisers first. :)
Credits and Resources
Icons posted are for anyone to use, unless stated otherwise.
I'm very flattered if you decide to take and use one of my icons, really. But please- do no hotlink. I want to be able to keep posting, you see.
Icons are not to be customised unless it is specifically stated to be a base, in which case you're free to customise it as bloody well pleases you.
Yes, Elvy takes requests. In fact, she likes to do requests, as they tend to ask for
Backgrounds? Layouts? (Friends-Only) Banners?
Banner- and background requests work in much the same way as icon-requests do. Provide Elvy with an image of the right size or bigger (and tell her how big the smaller version is supposed to be) with your wishes for said banner/background, and Elvy will see it done.
Layouts take too much time. Elvy spent a lot of time on the overrides for her personal LJ, and at the moment she does not have the time to go and make layouts for anyone who asks. She might just post a layout up for grabs, but she won't do them by request. No discussion possible at this particular point.

You may always nominate me for an award. I only ask that you tell me where you're going to nominate me, and in what category. Curiosity's sake. ^^
