|FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS|
|❄ WHAT IS thesnowsfall?|
This is the icon journal for tronica! It is a bit different from most icon journals on InsaneJournal. While the primary focus is on supplying icons for roleplay, it isn't just by actor/actress. Also this namely runs on characters I adore or requested icons from roleplay partners. I'm too busy to really do icons for everyone these days.
❄ HOW IS IT ORGANIZED?
This journal is organized by MALE, FEMALE, CANONS and CHARACTERS. Each have their own tag. For example each actor will have separate listings due to the different characters they play (David 8 and Magneto for Michael Fassbender). There is also a section under MALES and FEMALES for video game characters.
|❄ WHAT TOOLS DO YOU USE TO MAKE ICONS?|
I have a copy of Photoshop Elements 7. Along with HD caps and a lot of free time and being nitpicky about coloring? That is pretty much it! All my icons are colored due to coming from the LiveJournal icon scene. I don't like just simple crops. I like colors to pop out. Especially the contrast of shadows and light!
❄ WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR SCREENCAPS FROM?
Generally sites dedicated to the fandom or actor. I hope to soon have a huge compiled list to properly answer this question. I also grab a lot of caps from tumblr, or screencap them myself from HD YouTube videos.
❄ DO I HAVE TO CREDIT?
I would prefer if you do. I spend quite a lot of time on each batch, especially given their usual size. You can either credit this journal or my personal DreamWidth.
❄ WHO MADE YOUR LAYOUT?
The lovely and amazingly talented tessisamess! All I did was do some tweaking for my own needs on the journal.
The newest layout (as of April 2014) also features Delsin from InFAMOUS: Second Son. Because reasons.
