LIMS POST

[Mood: Amused]

So! Yesh, this is my LIMS post. It's really just for me to see what I can improve and what icon got which comment. :) Got this idea from someone else (can't remember who, though). :P If you see ELMINATED anywhere on the table of a particular LIMS, that means I'm out of that. =)

DOM LIMS
ELIMINATED
Negative
01) Dom's face/neck is overly pink....looks like he got burned or something... -
02) The icon looks really blurry -
03) Picture is all pixelated and off-colour -
04) The texture used leaves dom's face a bit orange/pink and he's all over weirdly smudged/blurred. i also feel like the text doesn't add anything to the icon, design-wise -
05) The image is oversharpened -
06) Dom looks oversharpened and washed out -
07) Too oversharpened. His face looks really weird -
Positive
NONE





HP LIMS
Negative
01) The composition was very straining on the eyes. I had to really stare at it to tell just what I was looking at and the barely there text only added to the confusion. It's just too fussy and needs to be simplified -
02) Too dark, wierd highlights and low lights -
MIA MIA Negative
01) The coloring is MUCH too blue -
02) The colouring of the eyes is too bright whist the rest of the icon is too dark -
03) Two must contrast and way too much blue in the coloring. It's just a little overdone -
04) It's over sharpened and too smooth. Plus the blue coloring is really intense and doesn't go with the image -
05) Too blue coloring -
06) That yellow line is too sharp and distracts from the rest of the icon -
Positive
03) It was the first one to catch my eye. I adore the colors, and it's very creative -
04) NO COMMENT -

ERAGON LIMS
Negative
01) The shadows are very dark and make it a bit hard to see. -
02) way too dark...though I love the text :) -
03) The icon is too dark and the red bites the white-black ... -
04) The image very dark and bad contrast -
Negative
01) The icon is really dark -
02) Uncreative cropping, too dark -
03) The idea for bright colors is wonderful, but I think the contrast is a bit too high, Saphira gets lost in it. Her scales and the contrast of the original image make it very hard to work with heightened contrast. Perhaps those same colors muted a bit? Or lower the contrast some? It might even work to shift Saphira over to the side and add some extras, which might help bring out the purpose of the icon's color -
04) The splotches of different colorings looks a little odd -
Negative
01) Wonderful colouring, but this circle is unnessesary, it looks weird -
02) Too sharpened and the bubble texture/brush doesn't really fit with the image -
Negative
01) The icon is really, really dark -
02) The coloring seems very off for this image, it is also too contrasted, leaving the coloring almost neon and distorting the image -
03) Nice text, but this oversharped and pixelly blue is very disturbing -
Positive
05) It's a clever use of the picture given and the text is a good match to the mood of the shot -
Positive
NONE
Positive
03) My favorite is 010 because the text just fit the icon and the colors are beautiful -
04) Great colouring and the circle adds a really nice touch, very creative and beautiful icon -
Positive
NONE
ELIMINATED
Negative
01) Excellent idea (I've seen it over at icontutorials), but the colors are oversaturated, giving the subject a neon effect that does not quite work with the image. Again, this might be artist's choice, but from my point of view, he is very saturated and neon -
02) Strong contrast. It is a lot of charp. Very sharp image -
Negative
01) Too much contrast and oversharpened -
02) The colouring looks like its set too much at hard light - too bright or something -
03) The texture is distracting from the image -
04) The highly contrasted image is overstyled. The blue is overpowering, and it detracts from the original image -
Negative
01) The text seems out of place -
02) Oversharpened, text makes the icon look too busy -
03) The brush is distracting from the image -
04) The colors look...overdone? and the text going across makes it hard to pick one thing to look at -
05) The colours in this image are a bit too saturated, giving the subjects a strange glow, coupled with the contrast really takes the precision and clarity from their faces. I am not sure what is the subjesct here. It seems to be that you are stressing the helmet in the background with the colouring of the text? The text is overt, and more work might have helped to bring out the image -
Positive
03) I like the colors and cropping. He is dead center, but it still kinda works. The background is pretty cool, too -

01) Oversharpened and overcontrasted, and oversaturated -
02) Too saturated and contrasted -
Negative
01) Too dark -
02) The brush makes the image look grainy. The colouring is overpowering -
03) The image is too dark and takes away from the emotion -
Negative
01) Poor colour choice, it's too colourful for the mood of the rest of the icon (the scene it's from and the use of scratchy textures) -
02) The texture is too grainy for the icon -
03) Way too saturated -
04) The colouring is overpowering -
05) Coloring is strange and text doesn't fit with the image -
06) Coloring makes it too hard to tell what it is, if I didn't know better I'd say it was a mountain... -
Negative
01) I really like the choice of text, but I honestly would have no idea what I was looking at had I not seen the original image -
02) The image is very dark -
03) The texture overpowers the ship. It's hard to tell if it's just another texture-y part or if it's the ship -
04) Icon is too dark, texture overpowing, it's hard to tell what's going on in the image -
05) The icon is too dark -
06) The textures obscure too much of the picture making it look too gritty -
07) Way too dark, can't even tell what the image is -
08) The multicolored dots in the background don't look very appealing and the overall image looks quite dirty, or fuzzy -
09) The text is distracting and stands out too much. Also, I don't think I would be able to tell what that image really is if I didn't know what it was already because of all the brushes used -
Positive
03) The crop is good, simplicity is wonderful, and blue coloring absolutely gorgeous -
04) Excellent colouring -
Positive
NONE
Positive
07) the colouring is lovely and smokey and it really fits the icon -

10) I love the grungy textures and the text -
