Life is hectic right now. I never thought I'd get to where I am today, I've started my UNI course - Diploma in Interactive Game Design. 

That's right, making a video game. I've been putting lots of time into learning all I can, and it's both fun and exhausting. My sleeping patterns have gone to hell so I've found less and less time to make icons. Instead I've been making UI elements, textures, meshes, learning music design, sound design and that's just the start. I've been working on my book more as the game works into that and I'm taking advantage of the lore I already have. 

To top it all off, D3 in my spare time, and it's all crazy!!!

I'll have new icons sporadically, but I'll still keep an eye on the page for new requests.

There is a new Moba that went open beta today called Infinite Crisis & I got into Strife.  Any chance I can get an awesome Griddark Icon for those??

strife is already up.
Uploading IC now.
-Industry Giant II
-Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis/ArmA: Cold War Assault (Go ahead aicons of both)
-Railroad Tycoon II
-Railroad Tycoon III
-Sid Meier's Railroads!
-Transport Tycoon (Very specifically, the original box art. Not Deluxe and not OpenTTD.)

Paradox Games
([SA] is a standalone game, and [E] is a connected expansion. In all technicality, you need only create aicons for the SA games, but I'm just offering up a full list here for two reasons. The first being in case you feel the desire to make all of them - and if you do, holy fuck, talk about dedication - and the second being that I basically have a list of all of Paradox's grand strategy games to date in this list. So a future reference thing, mostly.)

-Crusader Kings [SA]
-Crusader Kings: Deus Vult [E]
-Crusader Kings II [SA]
-Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam [E]
-Crusader Kings II: Legacy of Rome [E]
-Crusader Kings II: Sunset Invasion [E]
-Crusader Kings II: The Republic [E]
-Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods [E]
-Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham [E]
-Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India [E]
-Europa Universalis [SA]
-Europa Universalis II [SA]
-Europa Universalis: Crown of the North [SA] (Also called Svea Rike III. Weird naming thing, since Svea Rike was EU's main influence. An ancestor, essentially. Then they made Svea Rike III, but ALSO called it a Europa Universalis game. 0_o)
-Two Thrones [SA] (The sequel to Crown of the North... But this time, it's neither called Svea Rike IV or Europa Universalis: Two Thrones. So I don't know what the fuck went on here... Even they got confused.)
-Europa Universalis III [SA]
-Europa Universalis III: Napoleon's Ambition [E]
-Europa Universalis III: In Nomine [E]
-Europa Universalis III: Heir to the Throne [E]
-Europa Universalis III: Divine Wind [E]
-Europa Universalis: Rome [SA]
-Europa Universalis: Rome - Vae Victus [E]
-For the Glory: A Europa Univeralis Game [SA]
-Europa Universalis IV [SA]
-Europe Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise [E]
-Europa Universalis IV: Wealth of Nations [E]
-Hearts of Iron [SA]
-Hearts of Iron II [SA]
-Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday [SA]
-Hearts of Iron II: Amageddon [E] (Alright, this is a connected expansion to Doomsday, which was a standalone expansion... Which is weird, but okay)
-Hearts of Iron II: Iron Cross [E] (Okay, now, what the hell. This is a connected expansion to Armageddon... Thus, it's a connected expansion to a connected expansion to a standalone expansion. I... don't understand...)
-Hearts of Iron III [SA]
-Hearts of Iron III: Semper Fi [E]
-Hearts of Iron III: For the Motherland [E]
-Hearts of Iron III: Their Finest Hour [E]
-Arsenal of Democracy, A Hearts of Iron Game [SA] (This is another weird thing, as it isn't built off Hearts of Iron III, but rather Hearts of Iron II... I guess just because work began on it before HoI3's release)
-Darkest Hour, A Hearts of Iron Game [SA] (Same deal as Arsenal of Democracy. Based off of HoI2, but this one is even more 'WTF'-filled, as it came out after two of Hearts of Iron III's expansions...
-March of the Eagles [SA]
-Pride of Nations [SA]
-Rise of Prussia [SA]
-Sengoku [SA]
-Victoria: An Empire Under the Sun [SA]
-Victoria: Revolutions [E]
-Victoria II [SA]
-Victoria II: A House Divided [E]
-Victoria II: Heart of Darkness [E]

I did a couple while I had a moment, I've got the art (sort of) for the rest I'll get them done when I can.
Sounds good. Remember, for the Paradox games, the only ones that REALLY matter are the [SA] ones. The [E] ones are just kind of if you want to do them for the sake of just having all of them, but I personally will only be using the [SA] ones.

I'll try to get these done before I start uni.
Sounds good, man.

By the way, how's life for you now, anyway?

Hey man, so busy, you know. Girls are always trouble, doesn't help that Uni isn't being easy on me :P 
Remember I installed Windows 8, well after I got sick of it being a retarded control freak I got my PC back to running like a boss (windows7 for life!) haha I've been tweaking it so much I still haven't got Photoshop installed yet :O 

I'm currently learning the UDK dev kit, and I'm not going to lie it's the most interesting and difficult thing I've ever done, interesting because I might actually make a damn video game :O difficult because it feels like I'm learning so slow, though my teacher reckons I'm already weeks ahead of my class. Probably because I'm addicted to it. 

Been playing D3 xpac and that's damn fun. 
Keep me updated :) I'll get around to these icons soon.

Hello once again friend.  Can you make an icon for South Park & the Stick of truth.  I want that on my main wall & can't have it up there without a griddark desktop icon.  Thank you so much
