You've found the icon journal of your_downfall! I make icons of things that interest me (well, duh). You'll mainly find icons of pictures I find pretty or interesting, quotes, Harry Potter, CSI (Las Vegas), and Lord of the Rings. I also eventually plan on iconing some awesome Canadian artists, because there are very few icons featuring people like Buck 65 or k-os.

RULES:
1. Comment. I like to know what you like, don't like, etc. Plus it makes me feel special.
2. Credit. I do put work into my icons/graphics, and I appreciate credit. Please don't claim as your own, and credit either downfall_icons or your_downfall. If you don't know how to credit in keywords, there is an excellent tutorial here.
3. Don't hotlink. You hotlink, images go down, and no one is happy. Don't do it. Please save and upload to livejournal. If you need to use a banner or something, there are plenty of free image hosts, such as Photobucket.com.

TECHNICAL INFO
I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9 mainly, and sometimes Adobe Photoshop 7 or the GIMP for my graphics.
