Icon no# 1.
X Positive votes
2 Negative votes - the brush at the bottom doesn't work well with the icon.//The kodak texture doesn't work in this icon, because the icon is originally very dark, and it just becomes too dark with the texture. The texture also have a very bad quality.

Icon no# 2.
1 Positive votes - Good cropping and good placement of the text.
3 Negative votes - It's a weird crop, and it needs some sharpening//quite washed out, he seems a bit blue in the face//is too bright almost washed out

Icon no# 3.
1 Positive votes - Nice textured background and bright colors
2 Negative votes - Texture clashes with the pic.//The colors are much too busy. The pattern distracts you from the actual image. Nothing about it looks natural.

Icon no# 4.
1 Positive votes//the coloring is great and the text is appropiate for that couple
1 Negative votes - too many textures on the icon, the scratchy one is killing the picture

Icon no# 5.
1 Positive votes - Gorgeous colouring, and the light textures fit in perfectly
4 Negative votes - It's way too much saturated//Over-saturated.//Too high saturation
and there is no main focus because of that. Also the eyes look like they are popping out because they are so bright blue, and that's not good. //is too red and is a little bit blurry

Icon no# 6.
X Positive votes
3 Negative votes - The colouring is too plain, and the text looks oddly blurred//quite washed out and the text isn't the most flattering// composition of the icon is good, but looks like a base with an awful quality

Icon no# 7.
3 Positive votes - The background texture fits really well in the icon.//everything works together perfectly..the border, text and over all coloring//original idea of filling the icon with a complete different color, love it//Very creative use of textures and good blending.//i think is an original way to put the text and the borders//The vibrant color really does the trick.//

5 Negative votes - The icon is too dark, and the texture don't compliment the picture//the texture used is too overpowering, he seems distorted//kinda dark, but like the texture//though it's a creative use of the texture, the overall look isn't pleasing. Also, the image looks unfinished.//It looks like the man has a hole in is stomach because of the big holes in the notebook texture. The icon would have looked a lot better if the notebook texture was in the whole icon, and the tinytext was cut out, because it's very distracting.

Icon no# 9.
2 Positive votes - so simple and so pretty at the same time//The tunnel effect and squiggly light textures make the icons feel a little disoriented and suspenseful, which really suits the picture. The coloring is vibrant and rich.
X Negative votes

Icon no# 10.
1 Positive votes - The orange dot makes it looks very nice.
2 Negative votes - The red spot is a little overwhelming//the red thing don't let me see very well the pic

Icon no# 11.
X Positive votes

2 Negative votes - The colouring washes out the icon, and the grey texture seems out of place//There's something, like a lighter patch in the center. It looks unflattering.

Icon no# 12.
X Positive votes
1 Negative votes - Shoving the text and the brush in the corner show poor conception of cropping. This shows no skill or expertise.

Icon no# 13.
X Positive votes
1 Negative votes - the effect that he's resting against the spiral thingy is eye catching. Coloring is also good.

Icon no# 14.
X Positive votes
3 Negative votes - seems a little bit plain, but good use of text//the colouring (or lack of it) makes it look dull and overall it's a bit plain. the font doesn't blend well with the image.//They used a font meant to be seen big so you can see all the detail, so it just looks like the maker chose things they like over things that look good. Plus, I think they actually did nothing to the coloring.

Icon no# 15.
3 Positive votes - LOVELY use of textures!!//I love the crop and use of texture.//goof use of paper textures, and matching the orange shirt design with the orange light textures is nice, especially against the grey. Plus they even turned up the orange in his skin. The tiny text is well placed.
X Negative votes

Icon no# 16.
2 Positive votes - The colouring is very original and works well with the picture
//although she's a bit green, it's a good composition

3 Negative votes - She looks way too much green and yellow, which looks quite unnatural//the coloring, cropping, use of brushes is perfect//colouring is always necessary however this one has too much green

i've got a question-
the negative vote that i got, doesn't sound very negative (The vibrant color really does the trick). is that really the correct comment?

Sorry that was my fault, I'm half asleep right now while doing all this so I'm not surprised I made a mistake, I'm sure there are plenty more lol. I've fixed it though, you got 3 positive comments :)

Haha. You're nice. But I knew it. I couldn't make anything decent last week. Lack of inspiration.
V Casablancasbo_red on October 16th, 2007 11:12 am (UTC)
I think it sucks that you got voted off this early, I wanted you to make it further!!
