Al // Alice of Legend

#45

Here goes my entry for trope_overdosed, fully inspired by saxify's last post. Because Alice deserves all the love it can get.

It actually took me a while to choose the fandom. I knew I wanted to do a set with just one, but there are so many interesting/funny tropes to choose from! I kept switching them to the last minute because I couldn't make up my mind. They can also be really challenging at times, because it's a lot to put into a small 100x100 canvas. I'm really tempted to start doing all my posts with tropes. XD

I managed to finish my claim for 20inspirations pretty easily considering I started it less than a week ago. I chose simplicity because it's something I have a lot of trouble with. Simply put (no pun intended) I don't know when to stop. I just keep adding stuff because I fear it'll look dull or to cover up bits and pieced that I dislike.

So, for me, this challenge was all about self restrain. I promised myself I would use little text and subtle textures, while focusing on cropping and staying true to the caption's colours. I'm not sure if I met my guidelines, but it was a lot of fun stepping out of my comfort zone for a while.

I know... I know... it's been a while. BUT I'm going to try and make it up to you by posting aaaaaaaaall the things I owe you one after the other. That would be: four more tutorials, the requests (which are still open here) and the most amazing Doctor Who icon battle EVER (hosted at absolutelybatty's very own reflexive_verb).

If things go according to plan (which they so rarely do) I should complete most of these within the next month... We'll see how I do. For now, here go the first couple tutorials:

I still feel like I ramble a lot when I write these, so if things don't make sense or if I left something unexplained just leave me a comment and I'll explain better!

THANK YOU
...is really not enough to show how grateful I am. So I'm opening up icon requests.
Those of you who've been here a while know I'm not the quickest when it comes to requests, but sooner or later I come through.

Everyone will get three icons, but I'm going to ask you give me five themes so I get some margin to choose. It can be a show, a character, an HD cap you already have... Anything you can think of. I'd suggest you stick to things you've seen me icon in the past, or stuff I'm familiar with (scroll down to Pop Culture & Other Sins, simply because it's sometimes hard to do a good icon of something you know nothing about. But I promise to give everything a try.

PS: There are still a few more tutorials on the making, promise I'll post them soon!

This will be the first of several Ask the Maker installements. This is a 'campaign' of sorts organized by icon_talk to make up for the recent decrease in the amount of tutorials and to spread some icon ♥. Be warned, this is my first tutorial ever so I might ramble a bit, if you have any questions (or suggestions on how to do this) I'll be more than happy to hear!

fouroux asked how I created this icon minus the text. So here it goes...
