    I just got done with a Chewie icon...

    I'll probably do -



    • Amanaman

    • Exectutor

    • Cloud City

    • Space Slug

    • Thrawn


    • I am taking suggestions, so... PM 'em or post 'em here! I'll probably try an Epahnt too.

    Here are some icons I threw together in Photoshop: click here

    I made an old-style 3Po, 4 Amidalas and a Padme, Emeror Palpatine and Jar Jar.

    I'm outa time for tonight but could make some more later on.

    Amy, you do a great job for not having the tools! :)

    <grin>

    I'll try to do you an ephont man one. I can come back to this thread to do it.

    AMy's tips for good buttons:

    Jaggy edges = bad. Try to make sure that the edges around the image are smooth.

    Bevelly things = cheezy. NO offence to whoever did boba fett, but it's quite cheezy. :)

    Clipped characters look coolest : Clipped characters or characters or things breaking out of a background look best. So long as the edges aren't jaggy.

    Never resize a gif: Convert to RGB or millions of colours first before making it smaller :D

    I hope this helps a little for prospective icon makers. The C3p0 etc were good examples of icons that don't necessarily break a border.

    Yoda doesn't break a border because he looks too damn cool with the background. :D

    Those are good tips Amy.

    When will the icon library be updated?

    my guess is when cleo comes on to update them, unless managers and mods can do it, in which case when ever Amy's ready to upload.

    Great icons, norway! I especially like C-3p0, Padme, Queen Amidala, and the Emperor.

    Okay, I still liked the old SW smileys. But here's a link to *my* page of SW smileys:

    http://jediwarrior.swfans.com/id58.htm

    Hey, go look and *please* use any or all! :D Also, although its not techincally my own creation (Uncle Owen's!) I'd still nominate this guy back in http://jediwarrior.swfans.com/cgi-bin/framed/2711/09e15120.gif . Thanks in advance for looking! :)

    I made some more. :D

    these are from the parody called "Park Wars". I don't know if they'd be appropriate (they're not bad, if that's what your thinking :p) for icons here, but they are Star Wars, plus, they're funny. :)

    Qui-Gon Jinn
    Queen Amidala
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Darth Sidious

    hope you like em all! :)

    Sorry, I don't know how to make links anymore, but here is a pic of Yarael Poof I did:

    http://members.aol.com/raybombay/NewYarPoof.jpg

    I know, it's not very good, so if one of you members who can actually make icons would consider trying to do a Yarael Poof one I would really appreciate it! :D

    Could someone please make an icon out of this pic here. I would do it myself but I don't have anywhere to post it.

    What we really could use are icons with SW characters. Ships and ETs are cool, but the icons that are really in demand are main characters, like Norway did.

    I'll work on actual characters tomorrow. These ones were sort of 'practice', warm up icons, if you will ;). I thought the last batch I did turned out pretty good, so I'll start working on real characters tomorrow. I'm not used to working with images this small! :)

    My list ot 'to-do's' for tomorrow:
    • Luke
    • Han
    • Qui-Gon
    • Obi-Wan
    • Death Star II
    • Planets (Bespin, Coruscant, etc.)


    I'm also up for suggestions (especially ones with pics attached :)) so PM me if there's one you'd like to see me do. :)

    Hey Arty, Don't suppose I can ask a fellow fan for a Chuka-Trok? ;) That'd rock!
