This is where dfasgiles posts all icons she makes first. If you have ever seen icons made by dfasgiles and enjoyed them, you might consider joining this community.
DUE TO ICON SWIPING COMMUNITIES, ALL ICON POSTS TO THIS COMMUNITY WILL BE FRIENDS ONLY. YOU MUST JOIN THE COMMUNITY TO BE ABLE TO SEE THEM. Thank you for understanding.
ONE WORD OF WARNING:dfasgiles makes icons of adult nature; however, all adult icons are always behind an LJ cut with plenty of warning that there is adult material beyond the LJ cut, so that people who do not like adult material can easily avoid it.
My icons, so far, have included mostly humorous wording based on the pictures--some animated, some still. I have made a couple thought-provoking ones, though. I plan to make some Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel the Series, Star Wars, Bones, art, and probably icons from the other fandoms listed in my interests, too. It's just going to happen over a long stretch of time because I have less time to make graphics than I do to write because the graphics have to be done on the computer my parents can see me using (long story that some of you know and some of you don't), but the writing can be done on my laptop after we all have gone to bed. And, yes, I am an adult. Like I said, long story...that involves emotional abuse in a no-escape situation due to prohibitive medical expenses.
As always, thank you for your interest in my work! I consider myself a beginner-to-intermediate user of Paint Shop Pro 7 and 9, and have recently learned how to make elementary animations, so...anything's possible!
I'm a little slow with some computer things, but fast with others. **shrug** You figure it out. (I have Asperger syndrome, a pervasive developmental disorder [fancy way of saying permanent learning disability or "high-functioning autism"], and it seems to pick at random which things it's going to hinder sometimes.)
You can also see in the community interest list that dfasgiles is a proponent of gay rights. This means that some of her adult material will, on occasion, include homoerotica. When it does, she will warn about that, as well. She is very mindful of people's "squicks" and warns accordingly.
Rules for using my icons (Don't join if you aren't going to follow them, please): 1. No hotlinking, please. Save them to your hard drive, and then upload them to your userpics. 2. Please credit "(icon name) by dfasgiles" in keywords (e.g., Troubled by dfasgiles). Please also put (lj user="dfasgiles") in the comments field of the userpic (with opening and closing carrots where the parentheses are). 3. If you snag my icons, please comment. I'm new at a lot of the techniques I use for the icons I make, so it would really help me to know how I'm doing. Just try to say something constructive if it's negative, please. Thanks! 4. Please do not share these icons anywhere other than Greatest Journal, Insane Journal, or LiveJournal without my exclusive permission. Thank you. 5. If you see these shared where they are not credited properly, please let me know. (If it's someone who says, "If anyone knows who made this, please let me know so I can give them proper credit," just tell them, please. They're asking you to help them credit me, and that's great.) If you see them shared anywhere other than GJ, IJ, or LJ, please also let me know. (I always ask first and yell later because 9x/10, people have gotten them from someone else and don't know they're doing something wrong.) Thanks so much!
