Hello my dear!!
I'm here with your critique, finally. I'm sorry it's so late, but usually I like to wait until all the spots are filled in my thread, but it was taking too long ( plus I think my muse went poof so yeah ).
Composition : Really the thing about composition is always trying to make sure it is different with each of your graphics. Normally what I will do is whatever type graphic I'm working on I will look back at my gallery and see where the focal point is located on most of my graphics and then try and do the opposite of the graphic I'm working on. It really does help and it helps you be more of a versatile artist!
Image Quality : Image quality also use to give me problems. Then I found my love HQ pictures and it changed my life forever!!!
Text : Most important factor with text is go on a font hunting spree. I suggest dafont.com or just google free fonts and there should be quite a few sites to choose from. Although from most of my experiences they tend to mostly have the same fonts. Then when using text EXPERIMENT as much as possible and don't be afraid to use styles!
Icons : Alright so your icons are really really pretty! The coloring on them is quite interesting and I personally do love the "darker" feel to graphics ( even though I can't really do it myself, lol ). My favorite set however is your Arden Cho set. Personally I really love 100x100 icons more than the bigger ones, but I'm weird.
Banners : With your banners I am seeing a lot of REALLY good composition, but the one thing that is standing out to be somewhat the "same" is the text placement and fonts used. Basically just do what I mentioned earlier and you should be good to go!!! ALSO PLEASE DO MORE ANIMATION BECAUSE OMFG!
Chapter Images : Everything with your CI's seems really on point!!! So I wouldn't change a thing with what you are doing with them!!!
Signatures : Again on a some of these the text placement is somewhat in the same place. I feel like a broken record, but just refer back to what I said about text. My FAVE signature is the Find My Way Back one!!! I love the coloring and the comp of it!
Blends : I've got one thing to say about blends.... Don't change a thing! My fave is the Emma Watson one ( however I may be a bit bias because Emma is my love ).
Closing : There is only ONE thing that I want to touch on before I end with a clean-out and that is your filtering. On some of your images it seems overpowering. Again that might just be my personal preference and I don't know if you use Topaz or not ( it looks like it ). I would say use a lesser setting of Topaz Clean.
Clean - Out : THIS -- THIS -- THIS -- THIS
