posterityofthedesert: (Autumn glamour)
[personal profile] posterityofthedesert
We've had a final burst of summer here in the UK, but I notice that many of my friends are thinking fondly of autumn days ahead. So I have made a few icons.

Samples:






123
456
789
101112
131415
16



I also thought it might interest you to see what the images I start out with look like... I'm not a very fancy icon maker, but I am learning a few things as I go along. Anyway, below I have two of the base images for these icons.



This is such a lovely photo I found online, but when it was cropped down it didn't really give a very autumnal vibe... Even though wet London streets do remind me of autumn. I thought turning the sky into sunset hues would help, and as you can see I ramped up the golden shades in Big Ben!


This I wanted to give a slightly warmer, dreamier feel...


As usual, comments and credit are lovely... If you're interested in more autumn icons, check out these posts!

I stumbled across your icons via someone who was using one and credited you. :) So sorry to see that most of these are missing. :(
