My usual rules apply: credit me, comments make me happy, concrit is always welcome, and don't hotlink
also, it would be amazing if you all would watch the community.


this does not...necessarily mean I'm permanently off hiatus, it's just perhaps a step in the right direction? I really would appreciate comments, be them encouragement, or concrit, or whatever. Thanks.

Oh hi, good to see you posting again! I don't have time to leave you a ton of concrit right now, but let me know if there's anything in particular you'd like my opinion on and I'll do my best to find some time. HOWEVER I just wanted to say that I love the deep, rich colors in 3 (the greens in her hair! So gorgeous), the crop on 12, the really lovely lightness of 18, and the great muted colors of 21!

Thanks bb. Comments really mean a lot, like...It's just really hard I guess to keep posting icons and just getting silence on the other end, you know? It's so frustrating. What do you think of 6, 13, and 17?

Haha, yeah, I know how that can go. :C Especially with less active fandoms like Castle, it can be hard because not many people seem to see them.

oooh, experimentation with textures, awesome! I think the one that has the best texture integration is 5, because the colors there just kind of go with what is in the icon already. On 13, it looks like you either put the texture on screen (but maybe not full opacity) or hard light (also not on full opacity)? Since there's such a big difference in luminosity between the texture and the subject, though, it's making the colors look a little bit washed out on my screen. Maybe using a darker texture, or darkening the texture up a bit would help it to kind of fit in with the look you have going there. The texture in 17 adds some really lovely brights to that icon, but again, they don't quite mesh with what's there already. I think if you worked a bit more before putting that on to pull out the brights in that icon, it would be a really great fit and help to accentuate the brights; right now, it's just the teeniest bit overpowering since it is the brightest thing in the icon, so my eye is drawn to it.
Good luck as you keep working with textures, and if something here doesn't make sense/you have other questions, feel free to ask me! And I will respond (eventually)!

Yeahhh, but it's getting better, clearly. Yeah it was on screen, in 13. In 17, too, I think it was on color dodge. hah thanks bb!

Hey, nice to see you icon again! I really like the coloring of 17 and the texture use in 4. 19 is pretty amazing, the coloring, crop and contrast are perfect. Loving the light coloring of 21 too. Great job!!

Seriously, New Girl, Glee, and Grey's in one post?! I approve so much. ♥ These icons are pretty! I love the strong contrast in #011 -- I'm a sucker for deep shadows, really. :D

#015 gives me feelings, ahem ahem. ♥ ♥ ♥ I must have more, dammit!
