20 Hermione icons (+10 alts) for character20n20  
Yay, this is the first time I'm participating in character20n20. I claimed Hermione from Harry Potter, and I didn't have much time to make these, but I'm pretty happy with how they came out. This post might not be as creative as some of the previous ones, because in this one I wanted to really try to focus on technique and the concrit I've received and see what I could do with it, and well, I feel that technical aspects show the best in more simple icons. I hope you like :D

* Comments would make me really really happy!
* Concrit is welcome - I'd like to know asap if I'm not even going in the right direction! I'm really trying to improve here :)
* If taking anything, credit would be nice but not necessary
* Please don't hotlink

These make me remember how much I love Hermione. I especially like Pale, Moody, AC1 and Alt 5. I really like them all though, and if I had room for more icons I'd probably snag a few!

Aw, thank you!! I had no idea if Pale was any good (I'm not good with Pale unless it's a full vintage gradient map), so it's great to hear that.

There's NEVER enough room for icons, lol! I have 245 icon slots now and fear it will soon be full again!
thyla87: Hermionethyla87 on April 16th, 2012 04:39 am (UTC)
Really amazing set!! :) My favorite are calm (beautiful colors and light), least fave color (I like this colors :D and levels are great!), Neg profile (beautiful coloring, light and texture!), pale (love color, light effectand crop), silhouette (this is very interesting :) background is amazing and silhouette is done so well :)), victory (love text/font and coloring. Crop is also lovely.)

Category set is fantastic! :) My favorite this one are worried (amazing crop, background and coloring), Moody (also love coloring and crop.) But of course I like also okay (really peaceful colors, nervous (crop, bacjground, colors are amazing and I like scared because icon is very strong coloring and I like the light.

Your AC set is outstanding! :) You are use beautiful coloring AC2 and AC5. I like levels and different coloring AC2 and texture. AC5 are also great text and I love how dramatic it is. But I also like AC1, so amazing colors, too and texture. AC3 have gorgeous blending and I like black&white colors. AC4 works so well, again I like different coloring and texture.

And also I like ALTS 3 (but I believe that you make the right choise), 5 and 10.

And I take calm, least fave color, neg. profile, victory, cat 2, , cat5, ac 2, 5 :) Will credit when I used them! :)

Thank you for sharing this beautiful set :)

Omg, thanks for this awesome detailed feedback! ♥ I'm so glad those are working for you, especially Victory, cause I had no idea whether people would love it or hate it, lol ;)

Oh, you like alt 5? That was supposed to be my 'Pale', but I hated it so it flew straight into the alt pile, lol. But thanks! :D

I can't find a date on this entry but I was jut thinking that I hadn't seen a post from you in a while and I came to check your journal and I found this!

I apologise if I'm obscenely late with commenting but I've been really busy trying to put the finishing touches on my novel.

Okay so firstly, HERMIONE!!! She's one of my all time favourite characters in literature and, like, my third favourite Harry Potter character. Your colouring in this batch is gorgeous!! So vivid and glossy! I especially love scared, yellow and #2 of the artists choice.

Your composition is alway great, in my opinion but I think you've outdone yourself with this post. #2 of artists choice and 1-4 of the alternate are all incredibly interesting icons visually. Great job! (And I'm of to check that I've labelled you properly in my friend page because seriously, how did I mis this?)
a random javascript function: stark maskjsfunction on April 17th, 2012 12:27 pm (UTC)
Omg, I never noticed before that this layout doesn't show dates. That's bad. I might have to change it yet again :P
But no worries, I posted this just a few days ago so it's not 'obscenely late' or anything, not that there even is any such thing (commenting is never a duty or something I expect from people, friend or not! :) and besides late comments are always nice surprises, well, unless it's SO late that I have become super ashamed of the whole batch, which would be the case with some of my earliest ones ;D ).

But omgyay I'm so glad you think so highly of this set ♥ You pretty much mentioned most of the aspects I was going for this time, so double happy for that!

Also this reminded me that I really need to friend your icon journal too. I'm sometimes dumb so I sorta just add people back when they add me without realizing that it's a bit different in these cases, lol!

Yay, 'finishing touches' hints to me that the novel is progressing awesomely - congrats! I know it's a BIG achievement, well to me it would be at least, back in the days when I couls still write I was sort of notorious for starting stuff like no tomorrow and then never finishing it :|

Your icons are pretty cool! Can't really say which icons I love most because they are all beautiful. Maybe #victory, #yellow and #ok I find most lovely.

Holy crap, silhouette. It is so creative and fabulous! Great use of texture and everything. Sorry. I think I'm drooling everywhere, but it is so beautiful! I also really, really love 'scared'. it was the preview icon that drew me in!

Fabulous post!

Aw, thank you so much! Silhouette is actually one of my favorites in the post too but I sort of feared it would be too weird, so I'm super happy you like it that much! ♥

these are gorgeous.
I found your icons through character20in20. :)
I wanted to know if you'd consider doing tutorials of some of your icons?
a random javascript function: dargo vintage levelsjsfunction on May 29th, 2012 07:19 pm (UTC)
Oh, wow, that's a big compliment, thank you so much! :)
I'm actually working on a series of tutorials so just let me know if you have any specific icons in mind that you'd like to see one about :>
