Hmmm... love your work Portraits, but not sure what's going on here? Looks like a Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon in the folder, but I'm not sure. Love the transparency look, but this doesn't look quite as clean as your other icons. Tried to check out your link, but it's not connecting. Is this the same new pack you've been working on? It looks like maybe it's a new pack? I could be totally wrong.

I'm not going to vote on this because I have a feeling you may want to work on it a bit more... I'll check back vote on it later, okay????

As you can see, I was a little on the loopy side when I wrote this. Must have been the wine! I thought you were "Portraits." My bad!


Anyways, about the icon. Can I ask you what program you use to make icons with? The edges of these are quite jagged. They really should be made smoother, and the background needs to be made transparent.

Have you read any of mormegils tutorials on making icons? He shows you every aspect of making the icons, with videos, and also how to export them so they retain the quality of the icon as you made it.

At Skinartistry.com, we have a workshop that you can download your icons to, and have them tested before you submit them publicly. You may want to try that, too. http://design.skinartistry.com/news.php

Hey 47,

Actually, I'm using Corel Graphics Suite12 and I have been viewing Mormegils Tutorials. I have also been having some problems transferring them after they're made with Icon Developer. I've been talking to a few folks and they have had the same issues, we're not sure if it's a bug between ID and Corel, but I've been "playing" some more and figured out how to work around the transfer between the two Po' has been very helpful as well..Anways----lol, I see what your saying about the background and edges. I work on that and thanks for input like I said this is my first go at a icon pack and I appreciate any help

Yes, Patriots, I do like the ribbon on the folder. And I really like the design with the three different colored (gray, pink, white) stripes on the folder, as well.

For the transparency on the front part of the folder, did you use a linear type transparency from left to right? It seems more transparent to the right. But I believe you've left the ribbon fully opaque? You might want to try making the ribbon match the transparrancy with the folder, and/or also try using the uniform transparancy fill tool to make the front of the folder's transparancy more balanced. Once you start putting documents and pictures in the folder, you may want to see it more balanced.

Also, on your refelction, you may want to skew the right side of it up just a tad to meet with the bottom right side of the folder.



On my soapbox here: Since this is your first pack, I'd suggest forgoing the transparent folders.
