ICON TRUTH MEME 4


I've done the icon truth meme 3 times before, and they seemed like fun, so I'll do it again.
If you want to see the first three, they are here:
- part one
- part two
- part three

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.
Of course you don't have to comment anonymously, but I would strongly suggest it.

Anon is on and IP tracking is off. So, TELL EVERYONE TO PARTICIPATE!

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.

(If no one comments to this or anything, I will be so sad)

I'm not a fan of your current style, but you do very much own it. I appreciate how you take risks and are continually trying new things in your art. I like your vibrant colors but not how your skintones turn out. Everyone looks bright pink or orange on my monitor. Not very attractive. =/

Also, I think your icon image quality might look better if you actually did less with the image. I know when I try to do too much coloring or layer too many textures on, no matter how hi-res the image, the compression artifacts come out and make the icon look like it's of a bad quality image. I don't know if you do your color/texture work before resizing or not, but I've found that helps to minimize compression artifacts.

All that said, your text and humor icons are like no one else's. I wish I was even a quarter as funny as you are. Keep on keepin' on!

Your icons are awesome....I don't have any fancy artsy analytical-type things to say, but...they are creative, original and imaginative works of art.

Constructive criticism and suggestions are more than welcome! :)

You are such an amazing talented icon maker! And it worried me that you don't trust in your abilities enough! You're creative in cropping, colouring, using textures and everything you do is so great! I seriously love your icons so trust yourself more alright ♥

I agree with the above comments. Need to work on balancing out the color a bit, and work on text - but your cropping shows lots of potential. :D

Truth please, I really don't mind suggestions or criticism. That's actually what I'm trying to get in the first place ;)

I think the one issue that ever came up was the lighting thing, but you already know that. Hmm, sometimes your choices in color look a bit dull for really happy, excited, etc. icons, so maybe try to experiment with bright colors a bit more.

Oh, and to get this out, your coloring doesn't look like Nefadol's at all. You have a very distinct style despite changing it many times, so don't let it bother you when people say that it does look like hers.

Your icons are fantastic. It's not easy making sports icons and yours are some of the best I've seen. The coloring and crop are great. The only thing I would suggest on some of them is to tone down the saturation on the skin just a little bit, just so it doesn't look orange. Other than that keep doing what you're doing. From what I've seen, your icons keep getting better and better with each post. They really are amazing.

You're icons are sweet! You got some really nice ideas for text but personally I think you could work on that...making text stand out without overloading the icon, you know?
Hope that was ok!

I like that you don't follow trends. All your icons seem really unique and creative, and you use a variety of different coloring in each post. And I also love that you're not afraid to use text.
