I really experimented with stuff with this batch. Different colouring and arranging of...things. Anyway, I'm quite happy with it, and it was nice to have time to just mess around photoshop, seeing as it's been ages since I've posted here. Plus, making Merlin and Disney icons for the first time is an awesome mix. So, enjoy!

These are really cool, I'm snagging a few and I especailly like 17 and 44. I can see you've been experimenting and you've come across some really nice ideas for colouring and composition. Do you mind if I give you a little concrit though?

Thanks so much! It would mean a lot to me if you gave me concrit, seeing as I love your graphics!

Ok well, as I've said the colouring and composition are fine but one a few of the icons the image is overpowered by the light patches. The most prominent examples of this are 32, 33 and 36. You could do a few things to make the light work better: lower the opactiy on your light blob layer, use a soft light layer above the light layer or play with the brightness/contrast settings.

Of course, these are only suggestions based on my preferences. When it comes down to it it's all about developing your own style =)
Anyway, I hope that helped.

And I forgot to mention that I aslo really like 38.

Thanks, I'll definitely try that next time I'm in photoshop. I can never make my mind up about the amount light and contrast in icons, and my preferences seem to change batch to batch. But seriously, I love getting advice about things, so thank you for taking the time to explain; it's really appreciated! :)

And thanks again! ♥
