#01 - The colouring is so soft and luxurious, just like the picture of the Princess. I love the quirky light textures/scribbles and the pattern n the background makes the icon original. It also seems to suit Ashe's personality and her costume :)

#03 - The texture in the background is amazing. The colors absolutely work with Penelo. The crop of the picture is perfect, as well as the editing. The negative space at the top could have been used to place a text, sentence or word, but it wasn't necessary, since it's textlessness is wonderful.

#02 - The fact that this icon was the only one that was not cropped close-up made it stand out from the rest. I also like the stark contrast between the black and light grays.

#03 - The coloring is gorgeous! and the texture used doesn't take any attention away from the subject, which is really good =)

#01 - background texture doesn't quite fit but the cropping and colouring of the actual image is brilliant. Both really work well with it.

#01 - I was kinda going for the third one at first but after taking a better peek to the icons, the first one seems more well...original to me, i really like the textures used and the coloring ^__^ that's all i can say
♡ Shiro: clemence poesyseriouslywir on November 16th, 2008 03:31 pm (UTC)
#003 - Cute textures, the coloring was also a nicely done.

.sixth_blackbird on November 16th, 2008 03:59 pm (UTC)
#01 - Reason: I like the lighting and tone, and the shapes in the background are interesting.

#02 - It was the first to draw my eye, and has kept it. :) The back and white, and the two characters on the only cloudy background make a nice contrast that is very pretty in it simplicity.

#002 - Reason : I love the use of black and white and textures, and the composition of it
Sheila: Londonsimply_magic on November 16th, 2008 04:29 pm (UTC)
FAVOURITE:#03 - Reason: I think is the one you can see the image best and I loved the colors & background.

jana bananaoldskoolsocks on November 16th, 2008 04:48 pm (UTC)
#03 - I like the cropping & the texture fits the picture really well.

Tess: changes; yuna & rikkuleaute on November 16th, 2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
#03 - They're all gorgeous, but the coloring of the icon and the textures used compliment each other exceptionally well. It's just well put together in general.
montivernagemontivernage on November 16th, 2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
#02 - Reason

The simplicity of the icon is amazing, and the black and white suits it well overall. It'a amazing.

#02 - The lack of colour really works for this picture. I love the way it sits in the middle, and the textures- there's not too many, and at the same time, it's exactly what the icon needs.
mayush17 on November 16th, 2008 06:31 pm (UTC)
#2 - beautiful and original icon, the textures use very nice and the pic placement fits
Charmanderpokecharm on November 16th, 2008 07:32 pm (UTC)
please, I've been waiting three months for the results at radcliffe_lims, that person needs to calm down

#01 - even though it's out of focus, it's very well made
Alexsinfully_yours9 on November 16th, 2008 08:28 pm (UTC)
#03 - Interesting composition. And it all blends well together, it doesn't look all pasted on.

hope you get enough votes ;)

#02 - Less is more, that's what I can say. I prefer the second icon to the others because it's simple, there's not much brush/texture effect going on and that makes Balthier and Fran stand out, which is far more appealing to the eye. At least, for me :)
Kira: FFXII - girl timerainy_fantasy on November 16th, 2008 08:51 pm (UTC)
#03 - First of all, I love the coloring of Penelo. It matches the icon and it looks really pretty. As for the background, it's an interesting design that draws the eye to the main image. Overall it looks very nice. :)

1. I just think this is a really touching portrait of this character. The eyes really get me for some reason. And the texture adds depth. I also really like the cropping.

#03 - I really like the contrast of the icon and the clearness of the image. It stands out really well and compliments the textures.
Agent 27: Zelda--Sad Linkwitherwings7 on November 16th, 2008 10:21 pm (UTC)
I like 1, the colors are mellow and I think the cropping was done well.
Hannah: emo partylooni_ma on November 16th, 2008 11:04 pm (UTC)
#03 - lovely use of negative space and nice coloring.

#1 - I picked this one because it was the most visually pleasing. If I had to pick one of the three here to use personally, it'd be the first. The colours are gentle without being dull, and the textures compliment the picture without being excessive or detracting my attention.

#02 - Gorgeous black & white effects~! XD
 мaяpinguin0s on November 17th, 2008 03:37 am (UTC)
#00 - Reason The colors are just great, they fit perfectly with the image. And the effect it has behind it just makes it look even more sophisticated.

Janine.allllure on November 17th, 2008 04:48 am (UTC)
#02 - love how simple it looks!

Shay: Alice.leggz on November 17th, 2008 05:11 am (UTC)
#01 - I just love the pink hair against the beautiful subtle background. Just lovely!

#002 - good use of texture and it has a great effect with the black&white picture right in the middle of the icon.
