We will be more selective, being that we already have a nice amount of makers.
But we never want to miss out on catching a gem.
Feel free to apply.



If you are interested in being a maker, please copy the code below and fill out the application.
Your application will be reviewed by myself and the other mods.


*plz post sample icons/banners as IMAGES, not links. Your application will automatically be rejected if you provide links!

communities currently posting at: serendipiticons , my personal community.
How long have you been iconing? 2 to 3 years.
What program(s) do you use? Photoshop CS2.
How long have you been a member on lj? Are you very familiar with the site? It's been a long time, yes, and I consider myself pretty very familiar with how things roll around.
fandoms you like to iconate:fashion, Twilight, Lord of The Rings, Pride and Prejudice, Tristan and Isolde, lots of actors and actresses, premiers, stock, etc.

Do you make anything other than icons? ex textures, brushes, etc. If you do, please post a sample Not yet, but I plan too. :]
How often will you post? As often as I can, but at least once a week, at least in the first period. I have a though year, is my last high school year, and I have tons of important exams and tons of stuff to learn. But I'll manage. :]
Will you be willing to cross-post icons here, like post your icons advertised at fandom communities? (like gossipgirlicons, etc. Yes, of course.
Why do you want to be a maker here at ultravioleticon? I think it will be a great experience, the makers here are an endless inspiration and I would like to grow with them. Also, it would be an impulse for me to post more often and continuously try to be a better photograph designer. Besides, I am willing to design almost anything that's popular right now, anything people like, even if maybe I don't watch it or even know of it. It is quite challenging, and I love it.
Thank you, and no matter the answer, ♥
You have a great community, and I hope to see you around. :]

Hello Dieu :)

I'm thrilled to see your application, you have some nice work. I love the last banner and your fashion and stock icons. Perhaps you could experiment with textures?

I'm so flattered that you love us here at uvi!

I would love for you to join our team.

First, I would like you to post four samples as a comment at the makers sample post.
I will then make a post introducing you to the community.

Familiarize yourself with the tagging system. It's pretty self explanatory, and when you post please add the makers tag of '&deiu_deiu'. There are already a crapload of tags and you can see them here: http://community.livejournal.com/ultravioleticon/tag/

The other mods are windystreets and .

Check your community invites, I sent you an invite to be a posting member of UVI. Also please join ultra_makers to keep updated with the members of the community.

You're kidding me. o_O
I'm SO hipper-ventilating right now !! Thanks much, I'm extremely happy that you like my work and that I got accepted, it's such a great honour to be part of such a wonderful team.

Oh , believe me .. I'm familiarized with everything. ;] I read the rules a couple of times, the tagging system, the crediting, etc. really well before applying. I wanted to be prepared, just in case. :]

About the textures, you are perfectly right, and I'm so happy that you'd like to see how I deal with them also, because I plan on trying new and, in my opinion, gorgeous colourization and texturing as soon as I possibly can.

Again, thank you, and I hope I won't let you guys down. :]


p.s. : Yes, I have posted 2 identical banners ( the last two ) like the stupid cow that I am. My only excuse is that it was about 3:30 a.m. when I posted the application and I was tired and.. right.. Still a cow. *lol*

Oh gosh, wow! You're too cute!

I can't believe you went about and read the rules and stuff. And a couple times, lmao.


Lol, it's okay i noticed and I didn't care, I do silly stuff at that time too. Don't put yourself down!

Bonjour! Je m'appelle Jillian.
I speak a wee bit of french :|

I really love your coloring and texture use, I can't even tell you which icon is my favorite.
I would love for you to join us here, if you're still interested.
Your stuff is beautiful. I love that lily donaldson banner. that editorial was so ridiculous but hilarious.
You will be interested in crossposting your posts so they get some attention? That would be lovely :)

First, if you can, leave four of your favorite icons as a comment at the makers samples thread. I will use those also to introduce you to the community.

Please familiarize yourself with the tagging system. You can see the mess of existing tags here.
Whenever you post be sure to add the tag '&sunset_lights' That will be your maker tag :)

The other mods are Sam, windystreets and Carla, carlita286

If you can, please join ultra_makers, our makers community. TBH we don't use it that often. Check your community invites, I invited you [to the community]

Thank you so much, Lucile for applying. We're all quite close here and I hope you will like to be apart of UVI!
