I saw this on another icon journal & I thought it was a really brilliant idea. I would love it if you would take the time to fill it out because it will give me a better idea of what styles, colouring techniques, & such you all prefer. Plus, you can let me know what kinds of graphics you would like to see in the future. :)

I love everything you do! I love the coloring on the icons but I also LOVE the black and white! Your icons and banners are amazing and I would love to see some wallpapers! Just keep them all coming! :)

Okay, these are my favorites :) It was really hard to choose but I looked through the whole community and these are the ones that just popped out to me. First of all I absolutely love your color saturation and contrast. Your black and whites are always very perfectly contrasted. I adore the way you use texture and crop and frame icons. They're always very creative and different and they're your style. Every time I see one of your icons, I know it's yours right away. Kirstin, you have a wonderful style and I always look forward to seeing what you've made next. Your grungy colorful icons are your best, in my opinion. I can go into more detail if you wish, lol. I don't know if that made any sense, lol.

And I have to say that I really really love all of your banners. Ah! Hahaha. Your coloring is amazing.

I love this one and it has to be one of my favorite graphics you've created. It's nice and simple but just gorgeous.

You could make more banners and wallpapers since yours are so good. :)

I don't know if that helped you out but that's what I have to say, lol.

It's really hard to just pick 10!

o1. Photobucket o2. Photobucket o3. Photobucket o4. Photobucket o5. Photobucket
o6. Photobucket o7. Photobucket o8. Photobucket o9. Photobucket o1o.Photobucket

o1. The cropping is so nice. It's simple, yet perfect for this image. Your coloring is just gorgeous. I love the balance of colors, the brightness of the background is great.
o2. I'm biased about this one (: But you captured the moment very well with this cropping. I adore it.
o3. Um. Yeah. This cropping = one of my favorite EVER. It's one of my favorite icons ever!
o4. Your contrast/texture/small text decoration on this icon is breathtaking.
o5. I have no idea how you made this icon so unbelievably gorgeous. It's amazing.
o6. The colors are just SOOO vibrant and stunning. The icon just pops!
o7. The mixture of black/white & color on this icon is done SO well. Plus the coloring in the background is beautiful!!
o8. I love this style, it's unique and original
o9. WOW. I am in love with this icon. I LOVE IT.
o1o. You are so amazing with your contrast skills. This icon is just a perfect example of it.

I also love all of your banners. They make me so jealous. Your skills of iconing sports is by far the best out there. And you have such a talent for textures, cropping & text.

I would like to see some banners and I would really like to see wallpapers (if you have time, they take so much more time than icons!)

Ten? TEN??? THAT'S IT?

I'll be right back. After a lot of deliberation, that is. 10 is such a small number! ;]

LOL. Awww. Poor Kay. ♥

I was just trying to give a base number - give or take a few - so I could see what types of icons you all like. :P

I had to cut back a little, as I had like 17 listed at first, LOL. And I have to say I love all the black and white ones Karlie listed that I didn't- I know that when I attempt grayscale icons, it's harder because they seem flat. But you use textures and work miracles, and yours always turn out stunning. Props to you! :D

And seriously, all of the banners are stunning. I went to look for ones to post here, but I couldn't pick as they're all fantastic. From the coloring to the textures and text used, they're all awesome. :D

And I guess I could tell you what I love about each one?

1. The cropping and light texture = awwwwsome effect.
2. The stripes are brilliant, as is the coloring.
3. This whole style is just made of win. So creative!
5. Black and white love. The scratch textures are awesome, and I love how he's glowing.
6. Again, this style is very simple, but very neat and nice.
7. Black and white love again. The shine on his hat is awesome- I struggle with that a lot.
8. The cropping = <333
9. COLORING!! <3
10. Texture love, seriously.

Basically, keep at it, girl. :D

can we have some hot Chris Paul icons? He's ripping everyone through the playoffs and i think he's an awesome ball player.
Please make some of him?
Thanks! =)
kirstin: vince: vinsanityfairylanterns on May 4th, 2008 05:58 am (UTC)
I made a few in this post of him but I will gladly make some more. & I agree! He's an amazing player. :)

I like the coloring and composition and texture.

Love the coloring. I like that it's bright without being that tacky over-blue selcol style.

Love the composition/texture use.

Coloring is fantastic.

Love everything about this - the tiny text is used to perfection.

I really like the style/coloring, how it's softly lit.

Love the frame, and the crop is great.

Coloring is WOW. Crop is really nice, too.

Composition/crop is really nice. I like that the black blends right in.

Really like the coloring.
