Because the Raven post really wasn't enough to ensure my consignment to an unfashionable afterlife:


And in LJ Icon Size:

lwood: (elder futhark)
In response to a request from [livejournal.com profile] recons, I have made animations that go through all 24 elder futhark runes and all 20 ogham. As these both squeak just under LJ's 40kB icon limit, they're going behind a cut.

cut because we care )

And now, due to the request of absolutely nobody, but as long as I was at it, I thought I'd toss in the Younger Futhark. Aett collection is according to Sibley's twig-flinging.

Sleep now, right? Yay! )

Well, Estara asked, and [livejournal.com profile] emberleo was making noises about éar a few days ago before I even got this idea and, well, here we are.

The Anglo-Saxon Fuþorc is not my forte. The shapes I chose were primarily influenced by the chart at the beginning of Taking Up the Runes, except for a few times when my font's glyph table completely flipped me off and had nothing like what Diana had, at which point I nipped over to [livejournal.com profile] cauldronfarm's web page, applied that to my font's glyph table, and found reasonable matches (I'm not happy with the matching on Calc).

Thirty-five entries here, drink up me hearties yo ho: as someone had asked about eiwaz orientation, and I found two possible diphthongs with which to end peorð (unless it's peorþ), so both of those variants are posted for both of those runes. Aettir are assigned following Kaldera's emendation of a fourth aett for the ones not covered in the Elder, save for Gar, which is all alone and ever more shall be so.

Now, if anyone who appeals more to the A-S futhorc (which would be anyone) than would like to apply Waggoner's Second Theorem of Heathenry ("You're Doing That Wrong"), please do, and I'll see what I can do to correct with what I've got without resorting to Waggoner's First Theorem ("You're not the boss of me!").

Same rules as before: Odin doesn't hoard 'em, neither do I, but I do like me props (only fair, he does too): a comment, a shout-out in the description you use when you adopt it as an LJ icon, both is best.

Hey, ho! Let's go! )
Share and Enjoy!

Meanwhile, on [livejournal.com profile] badheathens, some people like their Eiwaz and Jera the other way 'round.

Heh! No sooner did I post that runic lot than, naturally, [livejournal.com profile] erynn999 made cute noises. And faces. I am completely pervious to these from the right parties...sleep? Who needs sleep?

So now! Raided like Cattle from Seattle with all honor due to Our Shared Indo-European Tradition...

Ogham LJ icons to go with the Elder Futhark set I just made. These are on a wood background, as ogham are most famous for being carved on wood, just as runes are best-known for being carved on stone (yes, I know, neither is an exclusive domain and so forth).

As far as copyright goes, I reckon Ogma wasn't hoarding any more than Odin was, so go forth and nick 'em, as long as you give credit. Feel free to crosspost to [livejournal.com profile] cr_r or wherever else strikes your fancy.

[Edit:I bet you want a link to the whole gallery, huh? Well, there you go. I also fixed a typo in [livejournal.com profile] erynn999's username--d'oh!]

Raided cattle behind this cut. )
Hokay. Me go sleepybyes now.

Yes, having already made twenty-four completely gratuitious icons, I present, er, another. Original image as published on San Francisco Chronicle website, originally from Garden City (Kansas) Telegram, photo by Laura Sisk, nicking and hacking up by me with Adobe Photoshop CS. Font is Dickens 18.

As I didn't take the picture and spent, what, half an hour poking at it, I can't claim copyright--but credit would be nice if you nick it in return.

Some days, one word says it all.

And some days... one letter will do.

If it's a RUNE!

I present, for the general delectation of the LiveJournal community, twenty-four runic LJ icons, one for each of the twenty-four runes of the Elder Futhark. Odin didn't invent the runes, and neither did I, so, therefore, please feel free to copy for your own use as long as you credit.

Feel free to crosspost, too--again, as long as you link back to me.

[Edit: I bet you want a link to the whole gallery, huh? Well, there you go.]

Twenty-four little pictures behind ye cut. )Share and Enjoy!

As I have all the raw materials near to hand, it would be no trouble to make, oh... the Anglo-Saxon versions, or ogham, for that matter, although I suspect the latter would want a warm wooden background instead of a stone one.

lwood: (semper slug)
My Photoshop LJ-icon making skills are not, shall we say, l33t.

Here, have a slug. 8-)

([livejournal.com profile] dr_beowulf and [livejournal.com profile] battleraven know why, although neither may admit it in public)
