pne: A hand-drawn teal deer with the letters "TL;DR" in the bottom right-hand corner (teal deer)

A while ago, I was looking for a teal deer icon for tl;dr moments.

Google Image search (I think it was) led me to this cute picture of a teal deer, which I have now made an icon of, by permission from the artist (Kunika).

pne: A very tight black-and-white pattern (one pixel black, one white, and so on) (moiré)

See whether your screen can resolve all the dots in the userpic properly or whether you get “beats”, smushed areas, colour banding, or other artefacts :)

Incidentally, I’m a bit surprised that the GIF version of this image was nearly three times the size of the PNG version; my experience had been that for very small images, GIF can win. I guess that’s true only for sub-100-byte files where the size of the header starts to matter, compared to the compression ability.

Edit: saving the icon as a greyscale PNG instead of a palette one shaved another 1/6 off the filesize—now it’s under 100 bytes! (I’m a tad disappointed that the PNGOUT plugin didn’t do that for me in its “Auto” colour type setting.)

pne: Three columns, fading from red - green - blue, respectively, at the top down to black at the bottom. (rgb)

…I just realised that my (old) “colourcube-111” icon and my (fairly new) “Maxwell colour triangle” icon are essentially the same thing, just arranged slightly differently:

colourcube-111: a hexagon with a colour gradient Maxwell colour triangle: a triangle with pure red, green, blue at the vertices, shading towards pure white in the middle

Edit: I’m intrigued by the fact that when I hover over the icons on Dreamwidth, I get a little hover window saying “This is you” and some links… even though it’s “just an image” and not specifically functioning as a userpic (next to my name in an entry, etc.). I suppose the code can’t know that :)

pne: A triangle with pure red, green, blue at the vertices, shading towards pure white in the middle (Maxwell colour triangle)

New userpic inspired by a post to CONLANG.

It’s a triangle with red/green/blue at the vertices and combinations of the colours in between. (For example, halfway along the red/blue side it’s magenta, i.e. 50% red and 50% blue, aka #FF00FF; and in the centre, it’s pure white, i.e. 33% red, 33% green, 33% blue, aka #FFFFFF. You could also find a spot that is, say, 27% red, 49% green, 24% blue, as long as the percentages add up to 100%; that would be something like #8CFF7D.)

pne: "Philip Newton" in Teeline shorthand (teeline)

Now, in addition to my Stiefografie shorthand userpic, I also have two in Teeline shorthand. This is the one that says “Philip Newton”—or at least, that’s what it’s supposed to say :) The proportions may be a bit off.

pne: A picture of a six-year-old girl (Amy 2010)

We got pictures back from the school photographer, and I made one into a new userpic (the last one of Amy was two years old; it was about time!).

Icon by [personal profile] pseudomonas.

Lovely language geekery :)

pne: A picture of a plush toy, halfway between a duck and a platypus, with a green body and a yellow bill and feet. (Default)

(And my hands just typed "GZIP" instead...)

Here's a new Amy picture! For some reason, I've always used August pictures so far...

I'm not entirely happy with how the picture turned out when resized to a userpic, but we'll see whether I'll grow to like it (or whether I'll find a better one to replace it with).

New Amy userpic; the old one was now over a year old.

It didn't turn out quite as nice as the original, I thought -- perhaps because you can't see her grin in the scaled-down version.
