Me too! And I've been meaning to ask you if you had any links to any good icon resource journals/comms? I haven't iconned in so long, and a lot of my stuff is really old, haha.

I'm not sure, quite what you're looking for, but these might help you out some. There are new textures on texturize, and I like to look at iconpraise for inspirations. There are some tutorial-ish stuff on icon_tutorial but I have a ton of random tutorials saved from peoples journals I can look through if you want. You can also find a lot of great tutorials on the Ask the Maker posts at icon_talk. If you're looking for another comm to make icons at, I'd recommend 10in30 which is relatively new, but fairly popular. Also making 10 icons in a month is way easier than 20 in 20! There's a small handful of other pretty active icon making comms too if you're interested. Or whatever other specifics you're interested in I can try to help out?

Thanks for the links! That texturize comm is exactly what I was looking for, but I also love looking at other people's icons for inspiration, too.

Ha, I think I have icon_tutorial saved in my bookmarks somewhere, I used that site obsessively when I first started making icons. I actually copy/pasted some of my favorite tutorials into word documents to use when offline, because we still had dial-up back in the day (this is like, 2002-2004-ish) and it would take so long for graphics-heavy posts to load. Memories...

Glad the links were of some help!

Also I'm impressed you put tutorials into word documents, that's some old school awesome dedication!
