    I'm gonna be nitpicking, because they're all really great ;)

    LQ
    06: Booth's shoulders seem badly 'cut out', making it look sketchy.
    07: Slightly overcontrasted.

    Least
    07 - The light texture (?) doesn't really fit which adds to the fact that the icon is overcontrasted.
    06 - Booth looks kinda pale in contrast to the overpowering background, although I like the idea!

    Best
    01 - Smooth flow and nice coloring.
    05 - Simple and clear.

    Wow this was very hard!

    Least:

    07: The white texture on the upper left doesn't fit the icon.
    06: The background texture overpowers the icon and draws the attention away from Booth.

    Best:
    05: Simple icon with great coloring.
    01: The coloring is very nice and smooth.

    06 the orange and black are too stand outish in comparison to the character
    07 the left side of the icon is too dark in comparison to the right

    Least Quality:
    06- Booth looks badly cut, especially at the shoulder, and the color is too clashy.
    07- The layerings just does not go well, contrast/brightness is bad.

    Best Quality:
    05- Simple, yet beautiful. Amazing colors.
    01 (It was a difficult choice to make.)

    Re: Misc LIMS #1: ' Challenge 9-Voting Up'

    Least:
    7 - She has the appearance of blending right into the background, no distinction is made.
    6 - The overly bright background takes away from the subject; more so washes him out and not the central focus.

    LQ:
    07- The light texture (I believe it is) doesn't really fit in the icon and the position is not the best.

    7 over contrasted a little too red and the gradient used would have been better on the bottom corner(s)
    6 theres too much going on with the text and background, which distracts from the subject
