Ok, first of all, from me you get a yes.
To the costructive criticism:
I like your use of colours, and that you focus on the faces.
But... ;)
#3: Can just be that I'm not a fan of these "white lines" but I think the b/w and the blueish is not enough colour... Maybe a reddish tone or some colour on R/Hr may look better. And you maybe should remove that thing on his head. I just can't see what it should be... Flames? ;)
#4: Just one point. The green is maybe not the best colour to use with the blue sky. Maybe a bright yellow, or a reddish orange?
booky_iconer: Clemencebooky_iconer on June 9th, 2006 01:36 pm (UTC)
Re: Yes
Thanks! :D

#3: I usually try to stear away from using white lines to begin with mind. I'm just not good at them at all. :P That is probably one of the very few icons which sort of shaped out in my head and I wished to try the white line thing out; I usually just do mine according to what pops in my head at that very moment lol. For that one I wanted to try my hand at doing something like you have in the icon up there too...tee hee, and no those are not flames. ;) That's actually a texture acting as base.

#4: Hehe yeah I know...I should really improve on the mixing colours thing at times. They usually say that blue and green should never be seen. I seem to defy all rules at times. :P

Thanks once again!! :)
Sabrina: Abby - b/w/r Umbrellainfinitecrush on June 9th, 2006 10:44 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna say yes, too.
They look really good. Not a Potter fan here, but the cropping and coloring is great.

#1 is a little too orange for my taste though. And the texture you used in #2 looks a bit odd. But I especially love the cropping of #5, #6 and #7!

And of course you get extra points for the Beatles reference! :)
booky_iconer: Smile & Wavebooky_iconer on June 10th, 2006 06:51 am (UTC)
Re: Yes
#1 and #2 were done quite some time ago so that maybe why. That was back in the days when I had no idea how to add a texture to an icon. XD

*squee* You're a Beatles fan too? *hugs you*

Thanks for your comments!
Sabrina: Ziva - Hatinfinitecrush on June 10th, 2006 01:58 pm (UTC)
Re: Yes
Of course I am, who could not be a Beatles fan :) *hugs back*

Check your invitations, I've just sent you one :)

Sunny: Keira 3amato_sole on June 27th, 2006 12:25 am (UTC)
Ok, from my side it's a yes!
I like your colouring, and the cropping is very nice!
Just a little criticism on 1, 7 and 12...
1 is in my opinion too blurry. The colouring is nice, but the face is not sharp enough...
7 looks too foggy.
in 12 I just think the text could have been placed better, like along the way of the "blow".
Sabrina: VM - Veronica approvedinfinitecrush on June 27th, 2006 03:20 pm (UTC)
Another Yes here :)

I really really love #1. The cropping and coloring is awesome, the eyes and mouth could be a tad sharper though.
And like amato_sole already said, the text in #12 could've been placed better. Maybe just a different font! :)

Sabrina: Abby ILYinfinitecrush on June 28th, 2006 11:41 am (UTC)
A yes from me.

I love the cropping of #6, #7 and #8. Especially #8. :)
The coloring is also very nice. But in some of those icons (like 3/4/5) the face could be a bit sharper.

So yeah, it's a yes from me. Let's wait and see what amato_sole thinks :)
Sunny: GG breatheamato_sole on June 28th, 2006 08:57 pm (UTC)
Also a yes from me.

I agree with infinitecrush on the sharpening on 3/4/5, but I have to add one thing. In my opinion there is too much soft light/red/blue in 3 and 4.
I like the text placement in 1, even though it's unusual.
I like the pictures you used in 11 and 12.

First of all, I give you a yes.
But you could have shown us more variety of icons! Not just in cropping, and some colouring, but as well in text placement, and saturation. I know you can do it, because I've taken a look at your posts in your icon community.
Maybe you want to show us about 4 more icons with text and saturation before infinitecrush decides...
The sharpening is good at all icons. None is oversharpened, or too blurry.
Sabrina: GG - Lorelaiinfinitecrush on June 28th, 2006 09:53 pm (UTC)
Just like amato_sole said, you could've showed us some icons with text, but I don't find it all that important.
I personally think, that the best icons are mostly textless. But that's just me ;)

So yeah, a yes from me. Cause I'm totally in love with your cropping. I'm a cropping whore, so what? ;)

Milos eyes look a little too red though. But that's all the criticism I could find ;)

Hi! amato_sole recommended I apply here while I was still at my old account, _syntheticpinup. I don't have many icons yet, and I'm not an experienced icon-maker but hey, why not try.

Sorry, I'm at work, so I can't logg in, but it's me jordanfan1984

I like the use of colours, and the cropping.
The sharpness could be extended, but that's just my opinion.
Some of the icons could use a little more light, but the intensity of your colours is beautiful!

Re: yes
thank you!
Sabrina: Abby - smile infinitecrush on August 10th, 2006 04:32 pm (UTC)
Your cropping is great and I love the colors you use!
I especially like #3 and #5!
But just like amato_sole said, you could sharpen some icons a little more. But that isn't all that important, they look great anyway!

I've just sent you an invitation! :)
