Nope, both Oc's in one large icon like this:narniachan.deviantart.com/art/… or this one on my friend's page saying "icon buddies!" :denisethekawaiigal.deviantart.… :3

then make it twice the length than a normal icon

So I make it 100x100 instead of 50x50 or 50x100 since the length of the icon is twice as long as a single icon?

Um, the first few times I used ezimba to make the background transparent, it worked, but recently it's been giving me blurred out pictures with some of the colour I wanted transparent still there. Do you have any idea why, or maybe a way to fix that? Thank you.
Reply
:icongriffsnuff:
griffsnuff Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2015
it is because there is more than one color, if you want nonblurry images you need to save them as a png or a gif and not a jpg.

farsidejr Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, that's what I thought too, only it is a png and when I pull it up in MS paint to check if there are multiple colours by using paint bucket to change the background, nothing shows up. I am really confused as to what is happening. I even tried to re-transparent the picture that worked the first time and it didn't work.

i know this is really old, but people still read it, so i just wanted to clarify that the iaza website is now call ezimba! didn't want anyone getting confused about that!

xD it doesnt matter if they write iaza, because it will redirect you to ezimba anyway.

if you go to the same spot where you save the file trees a red x that says properties and it allows you to pick a certain size!

put ".png" at the end of the file name when you're first saving it. that will convert it to a png before it gets saved as a gif.

but also for a transparent background you could, take a screenshot of the dA background
and fill in the places you'd like transparent 
but of course you can do it either way ^^
Great tutorial btw
