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)

Your manga coloring's nice; it's very simple, but good. You don't have to rely on massive amounts of shading (like I do) to make it stand out.

Sometimes, I feel like you either overdo the effects or don't have enough. It's a hard balance to find, but at least it's not as bad as other iconmakers I see. Sometimes the sparkles and textures seem like a bit much on some, and on others I'd like to see a bit more. And some are just right. Keep experimenting until you find a nice, happy balance.

MAKE MORE REBORN ICONS, YOU FAG--

okay seriously.

Your icons are always so bright and colorful! I'm in love with the coloring, because it stands out so much. I feel like you never get the comments you deserve with your icon batches.

I've been trying to work on newer icons, so any suggestions, praise, and the what nots will help with any batches in the future. Thanks.

Liz knows I love her icons and coloring, right~? ♥ As far as I can tell, you've improved a lot since I first saw the pretty icons you made, back when we were both in Spiral, and you made those lovely CCS icons for the both of us.

Looking back at some of your older stuff, I noticed some of them were just a little grainy, but I think that's more of the quality of the image, rather than your coloring. Also, some of them look just a little washed out, which makes it kind of hard to see the actual image. ^^;

But like I've said, you've improved so much! I especially like the Tsuna icons. Your shading's just so good there. Keep up the good work, Liz-love! o/ ♥

By the way, the last time I participated in the last Icon Truth Meme, someone critiqued me but I forgot to thank them. If, somehow, that person sees this, well... thank you for the critique! ^^;;

I adore your Arina-icons. Really do. I found yours through one of the arina comms and I poke in when I can. I don't get the chance to say I snag a few here and there, but I'll take that oppurtunity now to say that I really like your style.
Only crit I have for you is that some icons don't look as crisp when compared to others in batches. It could just be the quality of the image. But for the most part, your coloring is very nice~
I can't wait to see more.

Seriously one of the best eyes for manga icons I've ever seen--they're not overly fancy but still eye-catching in their simplicity and use of color.

A piece of advice I would add would be to work on your crop icons--er, non-colored manga icons. Where your coloring sparkles, sometimes the graphicky icons look a bit plain in comparison. Overall though, you're way more talented than you get credit for--you deserve about a hundred times more recognition than you currently receive. ♥

I think you've really grown as an iconist, and you can definitely tell by looking at your progress in your newer icon posts and then looking back at the days of encantan.

Of course there is always room for improvement, as there is with every iconer!

Shit, I probably did this wrong.
