Infinityx : (01 July 2015 - 12:49 PM) i've made only one colorization and it turned out pretty well the first time so i can't say they're evil although carla keeps trying to convince me they are xD
starbuck. : (01 July 2015 - 11:56 AM) i've never made a colourization :o how people manage to make them and they look more beautiful than the original images would if they'd been shot in colour is beyond me xD
diamond.snow : (01 July 2015 - 11:45 AM) I think colourizations are easier than icons xD
starbuck. : (01 July 2015 - 11:43 AM) someone should make a really detailed icon tutorial, how to make them with all the pretty textures and all that stuffs. i mean, obviously  we have icon tutorials but i don't think they're about using textures in them? or are they o.O i should probably know this by now *sigh*
starbuck. : (01 July 2015 - 11:42 AM) but i would like to know, alas!
starbuck. : (01 July 2015 - 11:42 AM) i don't hate icons, i just don't know how to make them pretty :P
Infinityx : (01 July 2015 - 11:03 AM) i don't understand why you think colorizations are evil :O
legolas. : (01 July 2015 - 09:56 AM) :lol:
bittersweetf... : (01 July 2015 - 09:47 AM) ohhhhh... OK. OK. approved. :)
legolas. : (01 July 2015 - 09:46 AM) we pretend blends and colourisations don't exist :D
bittersweetf... : (01 July 2015 - 09:45 AM) why does everyone hate icons when blends and colorizations are eviler? :O
chupacabra. : (01 July 2015 - 09:33 AM) such icon hate lmao
Inexplicable : (01 July 2015 - 09:19 AM) at least not willingly :|
