    Least:
    11 - The text is too small, it could have been made larger. Too much empty space.
    14 - Adam looks a little stretched, maybe there's a different way you could have cropped the icon.
    22 - A little dark, could have added a little more coloring.

    Best:
    01 - The coloring for that picture worked very well in making the icon.
    21 - Sometimes the simpliest colorings will give such a lovely effect, but the text made this one stand out.

    Re: Talk LIMS #7: Challenge One ~ Voting!

    Least:
    10 - Image is a little grainy and can't really read the text.
    24 - Strange colours. Adam looks a little... smurfy.
    05 - Adam is pretty far to the side. He's not really the main focus of the icon, the texture draws the eye more than he does.

    Best:
    08 - Simple yet great colouring, the text stands out because of the colour behind it.
    26 - Creative. I like how he blends into the texture, and the text is great, although could have been a bit bigger.

    Re: Talk LIMS #7: Challenge One Up!

    Least:
    14 - unfortunately the resizing of the pic ruined the icon. Adam's face looks stretched.
    13 - the text colour matches perfectly with the stuff Adam has on his head, but it's a little bit oddly placed.
    10 - the text and brush colours are pretty odd considering the icon.

    Best:
    09 - texture and brush match perfectly with the rest of the icon.
    19 - Love the bubble texture on it.

    Re: Talk LIMS #7: Challenge One Up!

    Least:
    22 - too dark, face and background have the same colour, the border is missing between them
    14 - Adam's body proportion aren't correct, contrast is missing
    24 - his face is too blue, it loks a little blurry, the text is not correctly placed

    Best:
    9 - nice colouring, is simply but looks marvellous
    19 - wonderful colouring again, like the light effect in the background

    Re: Talk LIMS #7: Challenge One Up!

    Meh, how I hate to vote in this challenge :p Great work, everyone! But I have to...

    Least:

    24 - oddly placing of the text: either smaller cropping of Adam so that the text fits under his chin without running through his face, or just go without text. And Adam's face it a bit too blueish
    05 - unfortunate use of texture, it's too overwhelming and distracting from Adam
    14 - Adam's proportions don't fit, he looks squished.

    (One tip for icon makers of #7 and #10: when you have the option save your icons as .jpg or .png, saving them as .gif-files always reduces the quality :))


    Best:
    19 - awesome! Great coloring and lovely light-bubble effect, everything fits :)
    08 - coloring, cropping, use and place of text - again everything fits!

    Re: Talk LIMS #7: Challenge One ~ Voting!

    LQ:

    #14- Bad cropping/resizing left a poorly proportioned icon (advice: put the cropping settings 100px x 100 px instead of cropping at a guess and then resizing).

    #22- Too orange, dark.

    #10- Too blurry (advice: as cinegirl well said, save it as png or jpeg, gif looks blurry and it's only used for animations).


    BQ:

    #19- Nice colouring and use of light texture.

    #26- Cool icon.

    Least Quality :

    07: I don't think the hand fits and there or dots in his face, from the texture I think...
    17: texture not good erased from face and the text doesn't ...
    24: coloring to blueish and purple .. and the text isn't very pretty ..

    Best Quality:

    08: Love the coloring, cropping and text !
    26: Love the whole concept of the icon ! very unique style ! and lovely coloring !

    Re: Talk LIMS #7: Challenge One ~ Voting!

    Least:

    14 - Adam appears to be somewhat squashed.
    10 - The is oddly positioned and hard to read.
    26 - The text is difficult to read and Adam is really small, a lot of empty space.

    Best:

    22 - Cropping works well, it's simple, yet eye catching.
    08 - Simple, yet effective, the positioning of the text also works well.

    Great job everyone, they all look great. :D
