I love the copping on your AC and the category!

But my favorite one has to be "your style" even before "not square" and the coloring on "promo pic" is amazing!

Lovely set!

Aw, glad you like the coloring on promo pic... I'm still not sure how I feel about that one, although I do like the texture I added. :) Glad you like "my style," since it's fairly representative of oh... 50% of the icons I make. LOL. I think "not square" and "outside of my box" turned out pretty well considering I haven't really attempted anything like either of them before. :D Thanks for commenting and for your feedback!! :)

Thank you! :) I pretty much have never even tried to do something like "out of your box" before (even when I've had pop art as a theme for challenges), so I'm glad it worked out.

I'm really happy with no eyes, the cagetories, and AC2 and 3, so I'm glad you like them too! Thanks again!

These are awesome - I love your AC set & No eyes. Object cracks me up. ;)

Thank you! :) I love the scene Object is from--Rodney and John always manage to push each other's buttons in an endearing way, even in the middle of a crisis! So, I couldn't resist using that cap for the icon.

Thanks so much!

Lol!! Your mystyle is sooo appropriate! Made me smile. I love the cropping on your category icons, beautiful. I really like no eyes, it's a fantastic crop and interpretation!! The out of your box is great!!
Nice work hon :)

I know, it really *is* my style, isn't it? LOL I must have 100 icons that are some variation of that combination of techniques, at least.

I'm really happy with how the category icons turned out. They are making me smile. :D I'm glad you like them too. B&W can be boring if not tweaked, so I'm really pleased with how I got the black and white balance and the cropping and the effects to work out.

For "no eyes" I was totally planning to do something more along the lines of a "guess who" with a crop just starting below the eyes and then I was scrolling through an episode looking for something else when I came across that shot and was like, oh!! No eyes!! Perfect!! So, I'm glad it works!! :D

And out of your box is the first time I've ever even tried to do anything like that. I'm still a little amazed I got PSE to cooperate with me so well (well actually, it didn't TOTALLY cooperate, so I had to use picnik and inkscape for a few shortcuts, but it mostly worked!!

Thank you!! :D The "out of your box" icon is a real stretch for me, so I'm glad it worked out. :D

Love your Cat set...love the pic selections and the crops. The AC set is gorgeous. Your style, Out of box,(How 60's cool), shape...well, they're all great.

I have to say, your Lyrics really hit home with me...Somewhere Beyond the Sea, is probably my favorite song, ever. I was so excited to see you use that.

Great set!

Wow, thank you! :) Glad you liked so many of them, especially the lyrics... that song just strikes me as being very wistfully Rodney-esque. :)
