Hm... Animation's kinda slow, but if I want to make it faster, I'd have to redo the whole thing. I really don't want to do that unless the file ends up being too big to upload, in which case,

"FFFFFFFFUUU-"

Wait. Shit. It's 81KB. That's too big. FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUU- I'll redo it in a moment. Love you, ~Writer-of-words. :heart:

EDIT: Ha! Increased the pixel movements and made it so that cumulative layers filled everything I needed. Filesize now a whopping nine kilobytes. I feel awesome.

Did you add replace to the layers? I'd assume not.

Layer (Xms) (replace)
Layer 2 (Xms) (replace)

And so on and so forth.

If you did do this, I'm not sure what else you could do to fix it.

Aside that; this is a fantastic icon for a fantastic person. Correct?

No, I already fixed it, and I fixed it in a much better way. Replacing layers doesn't change file size (which, by the way, I almost always do by default. So quit you're assuming =P).

Since only, like, five rows of pixels were changed every time, I actually set it to cumulative (which is weird for DaKing9!) but on each new layer only made it so that those five rows were changed. Download it and open in gimp to see what I mean. It's kind of innovative. XD

And, yeah. It is a fantastic icon for a more than fantastic girl. And it matches mine, too. I'm going to make a plz account to match our icons so it says "DaKing9 loves writer-of-words" along the bottoms. ^_^

First off, Your*. Second, you beat me there by far XD

Can't spell cumulative without cum. Otherwise, awesome? ;P

And lastly, You're so lucky. I was dumped yesterday and... well, it sucked pretty bad! Ah well life sucks yea', but life goes on. Regardless, I was about to say; That would be even better! Or a matching icon set. I'd like that even more =D

Thank you. *Your.

You can't. Good eye.

I heard about you getting dumped! :( I'm so sorry she doesn't want to date you anymore... And the icons match now. ^_^ Check out my journal. It's awesome.

No prob' ;D

Ahh, it isn't the worst thing in the world. I'm fourteen if you want to round up. Also, I just made a new icon. You like?

Do like! I enjoy the grey-black gradient on the outline. And the heart. And the background overall. <3

Yay! I'm pretty proud of it myself! Here's the unexpected. It's just a black border, with a faded white layer overtop of it. I think it's like... 25? 35? Something like that for oppacity, and then faded to 0 in the bottom right and top left corner with 100% feather edges (on ellipse).

That wouldn't be confusing to an innocent bystander at all. >_____________>

See? You work too hard. The same thing could have been achieved with a black-grey/white bilinear gradient. All of four seconds of work.
