AKB48:
Kitahara Rie [27]


Don"t deny the girlpower!Collapse )



-It was rather difficult to work with c-ute pictures. I'm not sure why. Apparently H!P uses a lot of filters on their photos. However I tried to work with multiple layers to make the icons work ^^
-Rie is so pretty ^^

Hello everyone!


Since quite some of you already asked me how to credit icons, I made a little tutorial here.
It's really simple, so don't worry too much about it.

Click here for the tutorialCollapse )

Final Fantasy XIII-2
Caius [12]
Yeul [8]
Caius&Yeul [2] (3 if you squint)
Yeul&Noel [1]

Tales of Graces F
Richard [9]
Asbel&Richard [2]

Eternal Sonata
Prince Crescendo [11]
Princess Serenade [9]
Crescendo&Serenade [2]



Don"t deny their charm!Collapse )



-This is the videogame ikemen post, as I like to call it :D
-Caius & Yeul because they kept my interest for FF XIII-2 up with their plot. And Caius as an antagonist for being more charismatic as the heroes of the game. I'll make some icons with the others later too though.
-Richard and his twisted mind. Tales of Graces F with its great plot and interesting characters hasn't bored me for even a minute.
-Eternal Sonata's Prince Crescendo and Princess Serenade for being a sweet couple.

Qwark [4]
Doctor Nefarious [3]
Quark & Doctor Nefarious [3]

Don"t deny the witty sarcasm!Collapse )



- This was requested by yukitsubute, after we played the game together.
- Sorry for the lack of other characters - the spotlight is on Qwark and Doctor Nefarious. Qwark because of giving us so many lulz. And Doctor Nefarious for being awesome providing us with his sarcastic, witty comments

Abe Maria [9]

Don"t deny the fierceness!Collapse )


- I've decided that whenever I learn the name and face of an AKB girl, I'll make icons of her. By now I know around 20 of them, which is still not all that much. And here is the first bunch of icons with three of the girls.
- I guess, Takamina is my oshi.

HSJ:
Takaki Yuya [22]
Yuya/Chinen [1]
Yuya/Keito [1]
Okamoto Keito [12]


Preview:





Don"t deny the pretty! :DCollapse )



-I finally decided to make a bunch of icons. I've started with Yuya and Keito, because I hardly could find icons with them and wanted to have one. Hence I made some for myself. Then I got totally into it and made some more... These are some of my very first icons and I'm (hopefully) still improving. :-)
-It was hard to find good/high quality pics with these two, which is the reason for the view lq icons.

Welcome to shortcake_icons!

Why shortcake you might ask?
There are two options and I'll leave it up to you which one you believe in:
1) Kanjani8's Ryo is my bias... and he is short. Plus I have a love-hate realtionship towards cakes.
2) I didn't have the guts to name my journal morning-glory and, since I was moody, I went for shortcake (cookie-cutter, unfortunately, was taken already)


This is a multifandom community for icons/gifs/wallpapers/banners. I'm in JE fandom, Jpop, JRock and dorama/actors/actresses fandom. I'm also into videogames and movies and some western fandoms. So, you might find all kind of different fandoms here. I'll give my best to tag everything properly and to make it as easy as possible for you to find stuff.

The community is open of course. Feel free to join and/or watch it!


There are a few minuscule, but important rules:
1) Credit me if you use my icons!
If you don't know how to do it, read about how to credit icons here. Just exchange the user-name from twentynine_ to lilly0 or shortcake-icons!
2) Don't claim them as yours, don't alternate or change my work
3) Comments are loved <3
4) As long as you don't ask for Dakota Rose icons, I might be positve towards requests and special wishes...


Now, last but not least, let me give proper credit to all the tools I use for creating my icons (and to this shiny little journal here):

Pictures:
Now, it gets difficult. I can't credit all possible sources for the pictures I use in this post. Some of them are from my own photobooks, screenshots, shop-photos, magazines etc. Many videogame pictures come from the original homepages, original artworks and videogame wikis.
A lot of the pictures of artists are scans. The original credit still goes to the original source of course - the agencies/labels etc who released the original. And to those who uploaded the scans. I'll credit specific sources in the particular icon's post. (Otherwise this list might get too long ^^) If I use pictures/scans from a certain source multiple times, I'll credit it here too - maybe some of you might be looking for these scans too.


Enjoy your stay! <3
