There were a few new icons I've been wanting to create so... I did so! Give me feedback, please! I've been staring at these long enough already I can't really tell if the text is too hard to read in some, if they're too dark, etc etc. So lemme know.

Edit: Sorry if you looked briefly and saw broken images, I went back and re-edited and re-uploaded some based on comments. Mostly fixing text on two, and adjusting the brightness/contrast on others, once I realized that duh, you can do that in photoshop!

Here's an introduction:

An avatar I created for another forum using http://www.tektek.org/dream/dream.php, and decided to resize it for use here as well.

I'd decided I wanted a Pirates of the Caribbean userpic, so.. here we go. The text just seemed obvious after I chose the character, which was also, well, obvious. The sad thing about it, aside from my display of Orlando fangirlism, is that my brain is trying to tell me that the "correct" version of the saying is "where there's a whip there's a way." (Left, right, left, right, left, right.)

And... my advent children userpics. I went ahead and uploaded the ones I created, though I'm afraid that some may end up a bit too dark and hard-to-see really to be used as user pics. We'll see. I may end up deleting them if so. I'm also worried that the text on the last one might need to be tweaked to be better seen.

As a note, the images from PotC and Advent Children were from screenshots that I took myself playing the DVD on my laptop, rather than images found on the web. I figured that's the best way to get what I want. ;)

"One Wing to rule them all..." *snicker*

I like all of them. Just two suggestions: Brightness upped a little on the "Where there's a Will, there's a way," and contrast upped in the text portions of that image as well, because I had to squint to read; likewise, text color just a tad darker on the "One Wing", maybe change to lighter where the background gets dark?

Heh, too late, unless I decide to redo it again. You commented in the time between I read the first comment, and hacked the picture to bits again and re-uploaded. ^^;; Hopefully it at least looks better.

Will's much better (Shiny Pretty Boyface shouldn't be in the dark!); mind if I copy the icon and take a shot at the letters myself?

I can read the One Wing easier now, too.

And because I'd forgotten in the previous comment: I agree with missysedai. If I had a context to use it, I would have capped that moment; I think of it every time I watch AC. So much "compressed dangerous coil" feeling.

Go for it if ya want, but it was bugging me too, so I re-did it (again), and re-uploaded it (again). Hopefully it's even easier to read now.
