I'm looking at your latest batch of OC icons and I like the colors, very simple. However I would spicing them up as well - add some text/texures :) But I really enjoy the ones from this entry.

The OTH icons are a bit too bland for me personally however like you said, they're some of your older ones. I do like the style of your newer icons (I would make the VM ones a tad brighter) - very pretty.

I'm gonna say no for now bc I think your icons need something. Try some more brushes, textures and play with the coloring a bit more. My fav is the 7th one. Good luck.

the show must go on - Question
Hi,

I wasn't sure where to ask this which is why I'm posting here. Please feel free to delete it if you feel it's inappropriate.

Basically, I'm just wondering what happens to the entries on the old application thread. I received two 'Yes' votes (in June but have heard nothing since then) and I'm not sure whether the other mods will respond to that thread now this new one has been set up.

I'm not trying to rush any decision and completely understand that the mods have real lives away from the net but I'm just curious regarding whether I need to apply again on this thread.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Re: the show must go on - Question
Just go ahead and re-apply. As far as I know, since there's no record of how many votes anyone had.

Hi, I'm Diane and my icon journal can be found here: pixies_icons . I received a couple of 'Yes' votes on my last application on the previous thread but since a new thread has now been set up, I was advised to re-apply here.

Constructive criticism is welcome.

I see alot of improvement and I definitely admire your hard work. I love number 2 :) I would just be careful with the darkness such as #3 and I am guessing you used Multiply Mode on #7 which I would also watch out for because it often washes out the original color a bit. :)

I'm gonna say no because I think you use too much saturation and brightness. It can be overpowering when you use it too much. Also, I'd work on your text. Good Luck.

These are nice however the color doesn't quite sit right with me. I'm predicting that Multiply was used on a few which takes away the original colors (For example, #3 is too dark) - I often browse through coloring tutorials for help. Thanks for applying :)

I commented on the other application, and I think I only got one response before the thread was deleted, so I thought I'd comment with some icons this time around, seeing as I personally believe I've improved loads since I last commented =)

Anyways! Hi! I post my icons at bruisedcreation. I try to go for the vibrant/bright coloring in icons. I usually suck with text, that's why most of these don't have any. And also, the first Supernatural, and second VM icons are brand new. I haven't posted them anywhere yet =)




Alrighty. I'm done ramblin now. Thanks for any constructive criticism you have! I'm always looking to improve =)

The majority of these icons I haven't posted in my icon journal yet because they are new. They will be up in a matter of days, though.

I also make many animations but I wasn't sure whether you wanted to see any or not, so I set my user pic as one of the animations.
