The best out of the ones up there, though the effect might be a little too sharp. but still good.

This is very empty, it's a hard stock to use, much easier for vertical tags but yeah, there really isn't enough going on in a major way to fill the space, you're just decorating it.

In this, well, two focals is pretty hard to pull off, and I don't think you're quite there.
To do so, you have to make sure nothing else, literally nothing else can grab attention away from them, and in this the focals are a bit messy, making them fade into the background a bit too much and not stand out.

This is perhaps my favourite among those..
It kind of fits the theme, time traveling and all, but it could use a little text here and there, and some tiny details..

Oh and if you're going to add some lighting effects in a tag similar to this, you might want to set everything radiating out from the focal on colour dodge.

You need to work on bringing out the focal in your work too.
Other than that; you've become a lot better.

The pretty CSS is blinding my eyes; good job..
I guess. xD;

Hope to see more.

So it's just past Oscar season, so in light of the awards I've done some film based icons (not necessarily involved in the Oscars) as well as one or two misc icons.
ALL ARE CLAIMABLE. LIMIT TO 3 ICONS PER MEMBER.

Awesome stuff! I most like the presentation though.

btw, why does it say "Kodo Giasu" in the Haruhi Suzumiya tag?

Random text texture/stock I think, didn't think about it to be honest XD

This tbh is the only icon that really grabbed me, I'm gonna take a punt at saying you're using a lot of soft light and/or Overlay? Cut back on that, your contrast is far too high.

I haven't had too much time on Photoshop this weekend so I just got this set done, again it's claimable but may be edited as C & C is more than welcome.

A few things got to me when I first saw this tag.
First thing I thought was that your render really isn't blending at all, kinda looks like it's just been wacked on. Secondly the blank space over there on the left is bugging me, it all just kinda drops off, ease into the edge of a tag I guess. Thirdly I think the background may be over-sharpened. Next time maybe apply image & manually sharpen/blur it yourself?
Other than that you're improving and it's nice.

Just going to rebut Dukey a bit here regarding the latest tag. :D
I think the render does actually blend into the background, the bottom right of the render blends wonderfully, without like smudging the foshizzle out of it and losing half your render, or without covering it too much.
That blank space I agree with, but my eye sees the perfect spot to place some big, bold text. Do it.
Lastly, I do also agree that the background could be a bit too sharp, especially to the left of her face.

So really I didn't rebut him that much, but this a nice tag, just a few things to make it pretty darn awesome. Nice work!

Update no.4












Non-sets



Tag fix



Next update should have some tags. Really needed to work on icons. I'm quite proud of my Scizor set, all the others are claimable I suppose.

Awe man! ... I was going to ask if I could claim that Scizor set.
To be honest, you didn't really fix the tag. It was more like adding some orange lines to fill in the blank space. You should've added some fancy text instead. However, I must commend you that it was wonderfully made, but still could use a little bit of improvement.

Out of your latest tags, I think that the Scizor set was the best. It's so sexy that I'm tempted to just steal it right now. Then, the next best could possibly be the samurai & Growlithe set. It looks very cute.

About the Maylene set, what's up with that random, yellow light?

I had hoped to reply with an update but I guess I best clarify some things XD
Sorry about the Scizor set, I plan on using it but if I change my mind, I'll let you know right away.
The tag went under little editing I admit, but atm my PS crashes when I add text nine times out of ten due to the fact that I installed near 50,000 recently. The render was softend, you'll notice on a second glance I'm sure, I wanted it to blend a tad more rather than being over sharpened.
I'll admit the Maylene set isn't my best work but I probably should have touched up the render a small bit. The lighting was just something I added for effect rather than going with the plain and simple icons I see around.

Thanks for the comment, much appreciated, the C&C helps a lot, I really do value it XD I'll try make some more sets today if I find some renders than tickle my fancy.

Oh also, seeing as in I have two weeks off I'm gonna do some requests, icons and a tag.

Render/stock:
Number of icons (1-4):
Text (optional but often doesn't work well on icons):
