Are you trying to figure me out, princess?~* Or.. -leans towards- do you wish for me to write about you? ♡ ;)
Secret icon making process (it takes up so much time)
(If you didn't read to the bottom of my profile: there will be no saving-and-stealing my images for any reason. Please make them yourself. I don't go through all this free work to make them available for you to use. I do it so the princesses enjoy their conversations with me. hey are not for you to own.)


I made 465 Episode 24 (chapter 33) icons in 3 days separated into 12 hrs, 7 hrs, and 3 hrs.

That would be as quick as I can while I take my time.
Pfht. I can't look graceful when I make these?


One episode in three days when I don't have anything to study. When I do have things to do, it's impossible to finish an episode. I would make icons only in spare time so I would use a week, two weeks...maybe three weeks if I'm busy during the days. I don't always make icons and I haven't finished all the anime episodes. Sometimes, I have to take days off just to make icons.

For an episode, I screenshot every different image of myself because it's good to have every expression, which explains the vast number.
(I'm not being narcissistic.)


So when I'm turning, I screenshot every second.
When I'm turning, I may or may not crop it at the same location.
It's more time-consuming when I make them identical.



Another comparison:



I don't always appear in this episode... I finished up until the part where I ask, "Oh, by the way, Kyoya, where is your kotatsu?" in twelve hours straight last Friday. On Thursday, I continued with the ending and took seven hours - and, lastly, on Friday, I thought I should screenshot the beginning of the episode, before Kyoya's narration, so my posts wouldn't lack pictures.


True pleasure comes in seeking things out on your own. (manga reference)


It is gratifying to create all this beautiful work with only my skilled hands and eyes and the simple commoner's Paint application.



Mangas have still images so I guess they are easier, but erasing shading take time.


I use three albums (2500 images in a full album). They occupy my friend's Photobucket account.
Computer lag? Ha ha~



In the past, I was too busy so she offered to haul photobucket icons into an album for me. I continued using her account because I didn't need to make my own. I could make my own now, but that's a little troublesome.



I don't know how to make gifs. I'm sorry.



I'm a little glad I don't know how.



Because then, there will be another amount of images.
Stills then the same stills into one short gif...(repeat)
