Well since I'm on Summer Holidays I thought I'd try some icons again. I'll update this thread whenever I finish some new stuff ;D Oh, and btw, the title doesn't mean anything ): And I use Photoshop Elements 2.

Since I don't do photography, I won't bother commenting on it.

For your icons, I say they're okay. Not horrible, nor the best. For the first and seventh icons, I think you may need to work on using textures. The black-ringed notebook looks too bold, and distracts the main picture. I believe the icons would of been nicer without the textures, actually. Less is more.

The second icon, looks very bland. I would remove the text, and give it a more brighter colouring. That, or put a light red texture (Like on your third icon) on it. Also, it looks like you sharpened the picture too much; try bluring her skin with a Blur Tool or whatever tool you use to blur.

For your third icon, the red texture looks nice, but the little text brush kills it. Remove that, and I think it would look much better. Same thing for the second icon, and the bluring and sharpening — don't sharpen too much.

Fourth icon — I quite like this one actually. Although on "Spoink" I would make the "S" a small "s". But I like the colouring of it.

The fifth icon is by for the best icon. It's nice, simple, and the colouring is lovely. I'd like to see more icons like this from you in the future.

On icon number six, I just don't like the picture, or the colouring. The picture's background clashes with the picture, and it doesn't seem to work. The colouring just seems bland, and that you didn't do much to it.

The last icon is okay, it's just that the white parts ruin it.

However, I would like to see more work from you in the future if possible. :)

too sharpened? no, it's just fine. it should not be blurrier unless you plan for that sort of effect.

i like your pikachu one, but try to make your icons less plastic. and no borders pls. try to make the colors stand out more and be more... dynamic? and the one on the top right is like all ew.

Thanks Sammi :D

I found this nice little download which gave me curves and selective coloring on Elements and so I used SC when making those 3 icons.
