Since there's a lot of icon hostility floating around, I decided to do this:
-Comment with your username and people will comment with what they feel about your icons. COMMENT TO THOSE PEOPLE ANONYMOUSLY, even if it's good or bad. Feel free to use examples, but please try not to hotlink. If you need to, use a regular link to an image.

So, anonymous is on, IP is off. PIMP THIS PLEASE.
And please don't be rude when commenting, there is a difference between constructive and destructive criticism.

Also, even if you feel like you're not the best icon maker, please comment anyway, or comment to other people. This is supposed to help people grow, and see their strengths and weaknesses.

Whitney! Don't put that face about your icons! They are some of the best I've ever seen done and I always enjoy looking and snagging! <3 Do not quit! Plus the things you and I come up with for icons can be hilarious! ;)

Your icons are flipping AJSDFJASDLFJATJASDFJASDF OMG, but, lately, a lot of them have been turning into zombies without your realization, even if people have told you to lower the opacity on your soften tool. It may not look like a zombie to you, but quite a few see it and I have to admit, it's starting to bug me a bit- no, more than a bit. Make sure you get an opinion from a friend if it's starting to appear even a little zombie-ish. :)

lol, zombie-ish? that's one i've never heard before. xD
you're right, though, i hadn't realized that ^-^' i will definitely keep it in mind :)

thanks :D

Sometimes they're a little...badly cropped. like that hermione icon that you did the tutorial on. it's all like, in my face when i see it. and the sharpening is kinda weird too. but otherwise, your icons are teh sex. it's just that ONE hermione icon that i can't stand.

I remember your icons from a few POTO icontests! I loved your work then, and I miss seeing it on a regular basis.

I know your graphics from POTO challenges and such, so I'm pretty familiar with your work. Honestly, I'm not sure what I think of your graphics as a whole. Lately I've been disappointed with your icons. They seem kinda simple and boring (the ones with the thick black borders). And I don't particularly like the softening effect, I don't think I ever have. BUT your style seems popular in the genre of icons that you do, and your graphics are different and unique, so I would just say to maybe put more spice in your work and tone it down with the soften tool. Otherwise, I do like your icons, so keep going at it. :)

great icons :)

Orgasmic icons, babe. You are a big inspiration to me. I've always admired the smoothness and grace that you've been able to capture in your icons.


...they have been wandering over to the scary undead side, as of late. [See to Miss indilime's brainz!!1 icon (http://www.livejournal.com/userpic/32776752/403699) for the zombie reference.] Don't make me take away your Sharpening Tool. ;) Perhaps, instead of Sharpening liek whoa woe, just try ONE Unsharpen Mask set to -- let's see, mine's at Radius:2.00, Strength:50, Clipping:5. Try that for starters.


It'd be nice to see you branch out with some different subjects and styles, too. Or better yet, challenge yourself (or an icon-making friend) to make a set using a style that's completely opposite your own. Instead of another 50 set of desaturated Emma Watson icons, maybe try a pop-art style of a different movie besides HP, Narnia, or PotO. Or check out art_battle for challenge ideas.

Don't settle; keep pushing yourself to be better! :D

Your icons are SO hot. I go to your journal for inspiration. I adore adore adore you cropping and your simple editing of the coloring makes the true colors of the pic sparkle. I'm a whore for your black borders. Your cropping is divine. Basically.. you are crazy crazy talented.

PS. You are really nice as a person, too. I think you're awesome. ;)
