1.Do you take requests?
No. That's the short answer. The long answer is depends. If you check the community regularly you may possibily catch a post allowing requests, but those will probably be few and far between. Why? Again, short answer is I just don't have the time. Long answer is, when ever I take requests I notice that the requestors more times then not provide unusable pictures that are extremely hard to work with. If and when I do take requests, I ask that you provide good pictures. They don't have to be high quality, but if you can barely make them out, or if it doesn't look like I can work with it, don't post it as a request. If your unsure, ask! There's no harm in that. But, I will warn you, if you post a picture I know I can't work with, I won't do your request. I'm not trying to me mean that's just how I feel. If I know I can't do my best with the icon, and that the icon won't turn out great, I won't do it. Sorry.
2.What programs do you use?
For everything graphic, I use Paint Shop Pro 9 (at times 7) and Animation Shop 3.
