hey kelsey, welcome back to tda! :)

 

just a few questions before your gallery can be approved - you credit lenore and marney for image packs but could you please be more specific? are these on TDA? image packs are usually images collected by people from other sites and they should include a credits list for those sites so you should also credit those sites/original creators as per our copyright rules ;) also you credit evan richards - is he a photographer that offers his photos under a creative commons license? if his photos are all rights reserved then they can't be used unfortunately :/ as for fashiongonerogue - from there you can only use editorials and you have to credit the photographers :)

 

if you have any questions feel free to pm me, i'll be glad to help :) i know things have probably changed a bit since you were last here so please don't hesitate to ask me anything ^_^

Ok. So yup. Really liking your stuff!

 

I'm digging THIS so much because of the purple and the black and white!!!!

 

I'm literally DYING over THIS!!! Omg. The color of it and the text and filtering... everything is so perfect.

 

And I fell in love with THIS the second I saw it in the voting poll. It's so simple, but the coloring and text make it pop out!!!

 

Can't wait to see what else you put up in your gallery!

Hi Kelsey! 

 

I really like your gallery!!

 

I love that you have a lot of lighter colored graphics. I think they are beautiful! I also really enjoy how you use lighter colors with a little bit of darker, bolder colors to make those lighter graphics really pop. Like this one here... LOVE IT!

 

Then there is this one... WHAT! I Love it! I love the creepy feeling I get when I see it. Makes me shudder! It's really well composed.

 

I must say that my favorite graphic is this one though... I really am digging these rounded edges!

 

All of your graphics are great!! I look forward to seeing what else you create! :)

Hi Kelsey!

 

I really love what you have in your gallery! Everything is just so utterly gorgeous. :)

Can I just start by saying how much I love your icons? The Marie Antoinette ones especially, with awesome text and texture use. Actually the Star Wars ones are super stunning too. Teach me how to icon!!

 

Since you wanted crit on your weak points and clean out, that’s what I’ll be doing. ^_^

 

Image Quality

I think what is causing the low quality for some of your graphics is putting textures on faces. Some textures or the biggest semi-visible Blake’s face are causing the second Blake Lively in the back to look a little lq, especially on her forehead. The smallest Blake Lively in the front looks a bit over-sharpened and pixellated. A good way to fix that is to use the blur tool on low settings and brushing over the pixellated places. :)

The Good Times sig also looks a little bit lq because of the light texture, so I suggest using a layer mask and a soft black brush on low opacity and then brushing over the faces a bit. ^_^  I think doing the same for the Lana Del Rey CI would be a good idea, unless you were going for that effect. :) (Maybe try blurring the texture a little bit using a big soft blur tool on low strength? :)

 

Text

I love how you’re using all sorts of different fonts and colors that match with your graphics! Kudos to you. :D I think you could work on text placement, because the text placement in most of your graphics is the same. For example, the last three signatures are all roughly around the same place. Maybe it’s just me, but sometimes, the text seems a little flat or overpowering. I think it’s cool to experiment with text placement. Try placing the text behind a person or place the text so that it looks like a person is sitting on it. Experiment! :) Also, I think the text on the Selena header is a bit too far from the center, so the focal point is a bit ambiguous. ;)

 

Coloring

Honestly, I don’t think you have any issues with coloring, but I think some graphics are a teeny bit under-contrasted: the Zayn signature, the Alexander Skarsgard signature, the Adored CI, the Every time CI, the Selena Gomez header (could use a bit more vibrance, but it’s pretty as it is too. :)), and the Low Winter Sun (although I do like the muted tones). What I usually do is create a black and white gradient map on Luminosity (and play with the opacity) or a Levels and drag the two triangles towards each other. Also watch out for matching skin tones, like in the Tell Me CI (the smallest girl in the front looks a bit yellower than the bigger two) and the Alexander Skarsgard signature (bigger Alexander is a bit pinker, but the difference isn’t too obvious). 

 

 

As for cleanout, I recommend this+, this+, and this+. :) Make more CIs and banners please! Your Adored CI and Draco banner are my favorites and I would love to see more. Your icons are amazing too did I mention that? :P

 

 

I’m so so sorry if I was a bit blunt or too straightforward (and sorry for the overuse of emoticons and exclamation marks)! I hope you find this helpful. (Honestly I had to squint to find weak points. You’re phenomenal!) ^_^

 

Love,

Charlotte  :loves:

Ah, Charlotte! Thank you so much, this is all super helpful. I've been on the fence about that Blake CI and I think this is the push I needed to get rid of it :P I had kind of a fear my text was getting repetitive, so I'm glad to know I'm not just losing my mind and that's something i can work on! I might make my draco banner not-thumbnailed and just delete the skarsgard one, now that I think about that. 

 

You've given me a lot to think about and improve on so thank you! And I'm so glad you like my icons, I'm really really happy with them lol
