Oh pretty! I love the vibrant colors on 10in30 set - the #4 especially!
Also the AHS #31 and #34 are amazing! :)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 9th, 2016 11:14 am (UTC)
thanks!
i found it very very hard not to icon a million caps of clary with fire hair.

LOVE that Countess/Dean one. I didn't know I needed that until just now.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 9th, 2016 11:35 am (UTC)
lol thanks! those AHS icons were from an incomplete set from [livejournal.com profile] character20n20 a couple months ago.

These are really great! I love the TW ones esp. Can I ask how you get such great sharpening for your hair porn icons? Like, #6 is seriously pretty.
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 10th, 2016 07:07 pm (UTC)
I'm a fucking idiot and wrote a whole big thing and then exited the screen before posting. Because I'm smart like that.
But first off, thank you!

For sharpening, I always sharpen on a new layer using unsharp mask.
I usually use these settings (http://i.imgur.com/9LowntI.png), I might play with the radius depending on how blurry the image is, but I also might just create a new stamp layer and sharpen that one again.
For oversharp parts I tend to use a mask and erase with a mid to low opacity brush, if its still too sharp you can always go in on the layer (or generally a new stamp. I'm all about new layers in case I fuck something up.) with a blur brush.

And then for hair, I might also use a soft light layer and draw in some shadows and highlights.

Lemme know if you have any questions or want any examples? I rarely save PSDs but I can usually whip something up.

[identity profile] rvnrs.livejournal.com on April 11th, 2016 03:25 am (UTC)
LOVE 6 & 8. The blue, the texture on 8, the blue. Also really like muted #5, cont'd #5, the crop on 13, and colors on 19 (pretty!).
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 11th, 2016 04:07 am (UTC)

Love your 10in30 set! I love how put together in terms of coloring scheme they all are! The colors of 1 is super pretty and I adore the crop of 7. For the other icons, I really like 7, 21, and 31! :D
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 12th, 2016 06:24 am (UTC)
thank you so much! i've been playing with colours and vibrancy lately, i'm glad you like it. :)
[identity profile] library-of-sex.livejournal.com on April 12th, 2016 05:48 am (UTC)
The crop and coloring in one are flawless, and I love the deep, dark purple tones in the 4th piece. My fave of your 10in30 set is the 7th icon with its wonderfully dense earthy brown tones and the exquisite shadowing in her face! *DROOLS*

The shadowing and lighting in 10 are to die for. Wow. The crop and muted coloring in 18 are impeccable, and I love the clean split-screen composition of 27. The coloring and sharpening are perfection, too! :D
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 12th, 2016 06:26 am (UTC)
ahh thanks so much for your comments :D
i really like how that izzy icon turned out, i'm glad you like it too!

Very recently, I came to love this show (Shadowhunters, 10in30) very much and enjoy icons of it.
Yours are lovely. I love 2, 5, 7, and 9. :)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 15th, 2016 01:18 am (UTC)
thank you! :D
[identity profile] tturners.livejournal.com on April 18th, 2016 07:09 pm (UTC)
Your colours are SO gorgeous. *w*
I adore the 1st, 2nd and 4th vibrant icons,
and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd muted. *saving*

I also love #13, #15, #16, #20, #23, #31, #33 and #27! :D
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 19th, 2016 12:17 am (UTC)

Glorious coloring and the lighting! ♥ I just love your vibrant set; esp the 1 and 4 and 5! But also 2 has stunning blue color and 3 I just adore the vibrant coloring! Muted set I adore your grunge style esp. 1-3. Lovely crop of 4 and so pretty blue coloring! ♥
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 19th, 2016 12:19 am (UTC)

i tend to go to blue so often, i'm glad people like it.

[identity profile] delacours.livejournal.com on April 19th, 2016 06:58 pm (UTC)
These are really great, I love all Alex ones and your crops on #13 and #18 are amazing. And your 10in30 muted set is just so damn pretty, I really, really love the coloring! :D
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on April 19th, 2016 09:34 pm (UTC)
thank you! :)
[identity profile] starry-night.livejournal.com on April 30th, 2016 09:55 am (UTC)
6 & 7 from your 10in30 set are stunning - amazing lighting and contrast! I also really love the crop and colouring in 1 (redheads make the best icon subjects, lol); the dark vibrancy in 2, with the pop of Clary's hair; the beautiful purples in 4, and the blues and lighting in 10.

From the other icons - 1, 10, 13 & 18 have terrific crops and lighting. And I also love 5, 6, 15, 21, 33 (OMG! This is like an awesome crossover idea!), 34 & 36 :)
[identity profile] sucksucksmile.livejournal.com on May 2nd, 2016 05:29 pm (UTC)
ahhh thanks so much for these lovely compliments!
