icons, again

I guess it's because I am packing that I have this urge to clear everything away. Or maybe it's simpler. I had four conversations about incons in the last twenty four hours that have made me want to inflict a couple of things on you. (G)

One was a runaway hit, One I love so much I can't leave it till I get home, One is so silly I have been panting to share it (It was also quite a runaway hit) and One Jim and I did together, and there were so few entries in its game that I don't think it will ever be posted, and I am in the mood to share it.

On the other hand, I was told by someone critiquing my icons in general, that my placement of text is ineffective, and that the quality of my pictures is "goopy." Lee, I want not only your artist's eye, but your eye as another mac user - what is goopy, and how do I fix it? Does it have anything to do with the very frustrating fact that I have to make my icons too light for my Mac screen to get them to look right in Windows? or is it picture quality set too low? I would like to PNG, but most of my games won't accept them. One of the icons mentioned happen to be Jim's actually - the one on this post was mentioned specifically for the flares being out of place. (ok, I know I sound snarky but I really do want to know )

Anyway - this one was a big hit:


And this is the one I did myself in with, even though I don't expect it to get noticed - it was a general challenge for *war*


This is the companion to my Serenity icon (favorite enemy)



Jim and I did this for a challenge at lotr_ic for the Seven Deadly Sins. There are two other sets posted, and both of them have choices in them that make me crazy (typical!) as these may you. No notes on why, or which of us did what, until you have seen them cold:






And, this bit of sillyness that I fell in love with while I was working on it. I had to do a song set, 10 to 20 icons. I dropped a different (cowboy) idea midway to do this, and I blame dinner at Friday's and their muzak, after seeing Thunderbirds. If I get the song stuck in your head - I'm sorry, but that is sort of the idea:








goopy or not, that last one is going into my rotation!
