Hello everyone˜ This is Capi's icon gallery. Feel free to look around and such. You can take these icons if you wish, but you need to ask for my permission first, and give credit. I use GIMP, and I get my images from LJ and Veer. Textures are from LJ too.

I like the flowers icon because they look fine and the colouring is spot on. The coffee one looks really weird because there is a black stripe on top of it, if you get rid of it then it will look alright. The rest are pretty much average and okay, you're doing well for a beginner on Gimp ;).

Coffee is actually the best of the four. Colours look the most natural. Shame about the black line though.

Thanks for the comments~

I could redo the coffee one, without thr blackline.

I think you should do the Cupcake one, Brighter, and just have random colour streaks across it,


OR like, invert half of the image, to make a negative cupcake ^^

Simple, in a lot of cases, is better. Remember, less is more. :B

Ugh, I remember the GIMP days. I got PS for free eventually, too. XD You're really good, actually. I like the pictures you used. The "flowers" one has to be my favourite, it's all sparklyy. ♥

I think the pencils one would look better if there weren't the black at the bottom, it takes away from the colour in the center. And also be aware of the Rule of Thirds. (http://heart-felt.deviantart.com/art/Photo-Tut-Rule-of-Thirds-92972170) It is usually for photos but sometimes I use it in my artwork and graphics. Just depends on what you like.

Overall, they're awesome (like better than I could do) and I wanna see more. :D

D: Curse you people and your free Photoshop! Oh, and thank you for the link Aorio˜ I added a new version of coffee, without the black line. It's slightly lighter, because I didn't use the black line texture.

Ah, v2 of the coffee one is simply amazing. Personally I liked the black part, but it would have looked better to the side or bottom. But now it just looks way better.

If you do this good on GIMP, you don't need photoshop. XDD;

But they're lovely icons~ I never had the knack of making icons myself. :\

Keep up the good work! Can't wait to see more. :3

It's the art of not using too many stocks in one image. xD;
I shall be using the coffee as my avatar … once I have permission…

:o Oh, wow guys, I'm honored, I really am.

@Melodyfree: Amazing? Wow, thank you so much. :x I thought it looked much better, I have to agree.

@Aizuke: Lol, thank you. xD Well, I would like Photoshop, because it has selective colouring and that. I think I'm moer of an icon person, because they take less time to make, and I'm lazy like that. But thank you˜

@riginality Fails: :o Yes, you can use it, if you wish. Would you give credit though? :x

If people like my work, I'm thinking of making lots of icons, and making a showcase. I shall update sometime today. I hope. D:

If you make a showcase then I can't wait to see it, you're making great icons just keep praticing and you'll get better at it.

I've only just started making icons in gimp too!
Its very fun. : D But I can't find any HQ pictures of
the people I want icons of. : (
I love the cupcake one, but the coffee one wins it in my opinion. ^^

Unless this is a gallery, you should really put things that you wanted rated in the Graphics Rating Thread sticky.

That's fine, but you should ask Allelujah Haptism to change the name of your thread if it's going to be a showcase. : \ *iz not mod of dis section*
