Week 50 - Susan Ivanova Entries

Yay for the extra week! I was able to get a few more icons made:

1) 2) 3) 4) 5)

6) 7) 8) 9)


I love the colouring on nos 2, 4 and 8 - how did you get that beautiful texture/glow effect on the side of #4?
Thanks! I'm glad you like them :) I used three textures for the lower right glowy effect. Here are the textures in the order I applied them, they were all flipped from left to right. I put the setting that I used next to each, but not the level since you could change them to something that suits you.

1)Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket by tihana. Set at Screen

2)Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket by blimey_icons. One layer at screen or soft light. Second layer at dodge.

3)Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket by ninesouls. Set at Dodge

Hope that helps :)

Oh wow! That's fabulous, thank you so much!
You're welcome :)
I'm sure it will be a total surprise that my blind voting included three of yours *g*. I really liked your 2, 6, and 4; something about the colouring of 2 appealed to me, and the way you used the light texture. 6 felt possibly a little too smooth on her skin, but again, the colouring and texture were lovely, and the placement of the tiny text was great, and I liked the stuff you added to 4 (I saw your explanation here, good stuff :) - I liked the layering)
Awww, thank you! ^_^ I really appreciate the reviews you give on the icons. It helps me see what others are seeing.

I kind of wanted the skin to be extra smooth on #6. I'm trying to make different looks and that icon seemed like a good one to try something a bit "unnatural". I really love the coloring on this icon.

#2 was a toughy. The screencap was kind of dark, and a difficult crop to make interesting. The textures came out well and I like the way the text came out.

Glad you enjoyed my explanation of what I did with #4. I don't mind sharing how I make them if I can go back and figure out my process, lol. You'd be surprised how many textures I can use on icons sometimes :)
Hi again! I'm snagging your no 5 to use, if that's ok *g*.
Hi *waves* Sure, feel free to snag anything I post in the contests they are always up fro snagging. I'm glad you like them :)
