Application post #2  
Couldn't edit old one, so I made a new one :)

1. Please read all the rules before applying.

2. Include in your application the journal you post your icons to. If your icon journal is not a community and is different from your personal journal, please include that so we can send the invitation to the correct journal.

3. Constructive criticism is provided with every No vote. If you can't handle it please don't apply. We're not saying that we are the be-all and end-all of damn good icons - no one is really - but we will provide some tips or at least why you received the No vote.

4. If you are not accepted, you are welcome to apply again AFTER 2 WEEKS. Please take the time to work on any tips or concrit you've been given. Please don't apply before the two weeks are up, your application will not be reviewed.

5. Post 5-15 of your best icons. Please post icons that you've made within the past 3 months. Subject matter is not an issue - we're here to provide good icons of any subject.

6. Please make the subject of your post 'you can't fight our love' so we know you have read the rules.

7. Within your application we want to see variety. Please do not provide 15 icons in the exact same style. 2 is fine but not all 15.

8. At the moment there is only one moderator. This may change in the future, it may not. That being said, you only need one vote to get your invitation.

9. You can check your invites here.

10. I would really appreciate it if you could pimp the community if you are accepted.  This is not mandatory with your application, just something I'd appreciate. :)

I was quite undecided. Some of your icons are really nice (10 and 4 expecially)and have great colours but others are very blurry (5, 9, 11) and text is pixellated (7)Personally, I don't think you posted your best icons here: I went on your journal and saw some gorgeus icons in your last 3 batch, with good colours and well sharpened :)(I adore the Taylor Momsen's icons!). It's a yes but do promise me you'll work on your contrast and text:D

Yes! Even though some looks quite oversharpened to me (12) and the colours are a bit muted and grey-sh(4, 8 and 14), your icons are overall really good(I love 2, 5, 6, 7 and 11). That being said, welcome to the community :D

I haven't done this in a while, and I like good constructive criticism.

My graphics journal is: mysticalicons its locked due to icon stealers but every time I make a new post I keep it open for a week ;)

Pity the journal is locket, I usually like to look at other icons before judging, but I understand your motivation so nevermind ;)

Well, I'm gonna say yes! Some of them a little oversharpened (4, 12 and 14) but other then I think they are really good :)

I was really undecided with you.
Your b/w icons are really nice, but your coloring is a bit awkward. I like 2 and 7, the coloring is nice and they are well sharpened, but I checked your journal too and I think you need to work on your contrast (some icons are a bit blurry and some are flat) and colours.
I really hope to see you again in 2 weeks :)

(and next time please post your icons in two row, it's easier for me to decide if I can see all of your icons togheter! )

Sorry it's no for now.
The first icon is not bad and I like your cropping, but your icons looks really blurry. It seems like you saved them with low quality or used some low quality images (7, 11, 12, 12 and 14). Also, icon n°12 is badly cropped, like you used the magic wand tool: I suggest you to use the magnetic lazo or the pen tool to crop the images, the result will be much more precise ;) The coloring is not bad, but is a little yellow-ish and flat in some icons.
My advice is to be carefull with the quality of your icons and to work on your contrast.
Fell free to reapply in 2 weeks if you think you have improved! :)

You forgot the subject line, but since it's been a long wait I'll close my eyes for this time...
Some of your icons here looks a little blurry (6) or oversharpened (decorations in 2) and you could work on your text, but I like your coloring and I love the cat and the b/w icons so I'm gonna say yes ;)

I like your style so I'm gonna say yes. Just one thing: Those light effects are really nice but I think that somethimes they make the icon look flat as in 5 and 10 so be carefull ;)

I'm sorry but I'm gonna say no for now :( Your cropping is great and I like icon 6 but they all look quite blurry or oversharpened (3). I advice to work on the contrast and be carefull with the use of brushes: I think that somethimes they overwhelm the icon as in 1 and 13.

I really hope to see you again in two weeks! :D

I like the composition of 6 and 9, but the other icons are quite blurry (5) and even if they look nice on some icons (8), I think that the lights effects are flattening the images (2, 3 and 4).

I hope to see you again in two weeks :D

Sorry but I'm gonna say no for now. I like the coloring of some of you manga icons (6, 7 and 8) and the animation effects are nice, but overall your icons looks blurry and quite dark (1 and 2)

Yes, but with some reserves: If I had to decide only from the icons you posted here, I would have said no... but I always like to check the journals and I have to say you have some nice icons there, better then the one you posted here. In particolar, I think that your latest icons are quite grey-ish and dark: that tecnique looks good on some icons, but doesn't really works with others. Same thing with the skin colouring: I think that you had great colors in the older batch while some of the newer are quite grey and pale. That being said, I actually like your style so promise me you'll work on the light of your icons and welcome to the community ;)

My name is Karen and I post at my journal nodazzle. I've been away for a while due to a family thing but I'm back and hope to start posting again soon. Some of these are a little older than 3 months but they are from my two most recent posts (hence the limited subject matter!). Hope that's alright...
