Re: Magical HP icons

Wow, everyone's are really good. I'm sort of a beginner at avatar icons, but I'll post what I've made so far.

Re: Magical HP icons

Practice! and a graphics program like Photoshop, paintshop pro, GIMP etc etc. Here is a link to a livejournal community with general icon tips. Here is a livejournal community focused on Harry Potter. They are alot of fun

Re: Magical HP icons

Very nice! I loved how you gave the icon a nice warm glow. Good work

Weasleygirl- Good cropping, you have the hang of it

Some older icons

Re: Magical HP icons

I've been taking a good look at how other people make their graphics and I realised that I generally prefer to choose one colour for my images and make that the base colour. So I spent a little while on this one, as a first attempt to 'break the mould':





Well, I've two colours in there...
I couldn't duplicate that lighting effect you did on Hermione's hair, evita. I'll work on it

Re: Magical HP icons

weasleygirl: That's very pretty. I like the way you've got the text so big by dropping it off the edge, but you still know what it says.
Rupert looks a bit tired. Must have been the end of a long day's filming.

Are you quite sure?

OK. I love the first two a lot. I really like the way you have chosen a different colour background for each person, and the colour suits their personality or House. But I think the picture of Ginny looks a bit funny. Was it a low res photo to start with? Or maybe it has been sharpened a little too much?
On Luna, I like that you've given her skin a tone but kept her lips and eyes true coloured, but she looks a bit 'lemony' for my preference. It does make her look dreamy though.

By the way, I love the Dumbledore's Army sig *big thumbs up* Great idea.

Re: Magical HP icons

Great work Sholeigh, weasleygirl98 and xnataliex. Thats some good stuff

Sholeigh- Love the color effect. Its a very nice contrast and I love the way your text almost glows. Really I fight with text all the time... never wants to work for me

weasleygirl98- OOOH the good ship *hands cookie* Id say the text and color fits perfectly! Looks like something you would find in a magazine color scheme. Great stuff

xnataliex- love the style and how you incorproated the colors. Nice touch. I would agree that your Ginny and Pansy are a bit pixely unless it was an effect you used The Cedric one is just beautiful

Now for some things I made today whilst being bored...



links to large Livejournal banners I was asked to make for a LJ challenge community

Comments and constructive criticism welcome

...I doubt this will be my only update today

Re: Magical HP icons

Wow those are great Evita, I like a lot your first post Lily and second post Hogwarts ones. And Alfonso, your first one and the one with the stone are great.
Well they are all great (don't worry, I am not going to review every single graphic here could be an endless post )

I kind of want to put one too...even if it is not movie based, is it still a graphic?
