I totally love your icons!

Love the way you enhance the colors. How it's bright but not radioactive, and yet muted all at the same time. Great use of textures, especially recently. And good text, always. Never seems out of place.

Big fan of your Firefly (and all the Jossverse, really) and Doctor Who ones. Can't wait to see some more Torchwood ones! Definitely a yes. :)

I was a bit hesitant at first, but overall, I'm going to say yes.

I really just wanted to say that they look good alone, while side by side, they are a bit overpowering. Maybe try to be a bit simplistic every once in a while. Like #4. That is a simple and nice one of Gwen. #3 would look better, to me, if the flower brush wasn't there behind Jack. It just seems a bit unnecessary.

I do love your texture usage and use of bold text and colors.

I love your icons. And Torchwood has some great opportunities for gorgeous icons and I think you've captured it! Very crisp and clear. Great coloring. DEFINITELY A YES. :)

I'm so glad you applied! Feel free to ask anyone that you think makes great Torchwood icons to apply here. It's been sort of slow and the show needs some love!

Sarah!: [TW] 3 with 4.killmotion on October 13th, 2007 08:27 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna say no for now. But I think you've got really great potential!
I went to your latest post in you community. A lot of your work has nice coloring. And, yet, a lot of it is a bit bland or too much of one color (which can be done correctly, however). But many aren't sharp enough. Try practicing with the Unsharp Mask if you use PS. I had this same problem starting out. You really don't notice how blurry it is until you sharpen it. But watch out for oversharpening, too.

The first one is a nice but fors some reason Buffy's cheek seems gritty. Sometimes coloring brings out some grittiness. Especially in shows with dark caps like BtVS. And #2. It's a great crop, but also the grittiness on Mal's forehead. And the coloring is kind of like a rainbow. Sometimes simpler is best. Number three has so much going on I don't know what to say first. The texture use is a bit extreme. I can barely make out Jack or the Doctor. The fourth one is a better one. While it is an ok crop, I'd say if it were a little closer, and the tippy top of Tyra's head shouldn't be cut and if the saturation were amped up, it would be fantastic. The fifth one I don't know who it is, but it does have nice bright blue. The 6th one is actually the best of the examples. Seven could also be a bit sharper. 8 I'm not a fan of blending much but that's just me. 9 would be so much better with just a bit more saturation. 10 would be even better if you made everything else white. Then it would be Just Jack (hah).

So overall, play around with coloring. Try making them brighter but not like a rainbow. And sharpening. Sorry it's too long. Also, you can try the community graphic_concrit. And good luck. Play around and try again in a few weeks.

I like your coloring, texture usage and text. I'd say try using the sharpening tool a it (don't go overboard). A tip is I use a round brush and only sharpen around the face area, and then if it's closer up, just the eyes, nose/mouth area. It's all about hat you're comfortable with. :)
