Creating Beauty ~ Elenloth's graphics journal

28 July
External Services:

This journal was opened 12th October 2005. I created this simply because I like making graphics and needed a place where I could share them... the usual story.
This is the fourth layout of my journal. It is made of three photos featuring a pony, Rohan, who's my favourite horse. Rohan is owned by a Finnish riding school called Merjan talli. The photographs were taken by me. Do not copy or use the photos!! Everything's © Elenloth 2006.
I post here icons, wallpapers, headers and friends only signs made by me. Almost all of them used to be Star Wars but I've moved on to making icons etc. from many fandoms. All the stuff is made using Photoshop 6 and/or Paint Shop Pro 7. They're both old programs, but actually all that matters is what you can do with your program, not what they are or how old they are. So they do just fine.

I've been doing graphics for about two years now. At first I made them with Paint XD In summer 2003 I got my PSP7. After that I've been learning more all the time ;) Some months ago I got PS6 and am now using mainly it, although I still do use PSP to crop the icons.
At first I did only Lord of the Rings thingies (that was long ago and the icons were crappy), now I do graphics out of anything if it just has pretty pictures.
