ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

supernatural FLAIL FOREVER, supernatural WESTERN, supernatural dean 3.0

two tutorials

So, I was asked by muses_inc and xxsafixx if I could do tutorials for two icons from this batch and I comply. ;) First thing: I did most of those icons using a variation on this, so this might work on most caps from the episode. Second: I didn't have the psds saved (because I usually make things up as I go every time, which I shouldn't) so I tried to re-make them as close as I could to the original result - I think they're similar enough.

What we're doing:

a) (the original is -> )
b) (the original is -> )

Program: photoshop CS4
Translatable: there's a selective color layer but it's for an adjustment - you could probably translate it.
Level: ... pretty easy I think XD

Hi. One day I'll get back to post stuff somewhat regularly but for now have a 20in20 claim plus me cleaning up all the unposted icons I have in my HD and some wallpapers. Which is why this post is way random, but maybe if I post everything I had left I'll just stop procrastinating on icons as well. So, without further ado:

Icons:

plus:

1-20 redux: random SPN icons, mostly made for spnland challenges
21-30 Wings of Desire
