NEGATIVE VOTES 2 - Too washed out, and the dark line running across is distracting 2 - the brush overlay is distracting and significantly lowers the quality of the image. 2 - icon is too blurry. the bar across is distracting. 2 - Looks a bit too faded and blurry. 2 - I wouldn't say this icon is washed out, but it is lacking something. It is too bright for my taste and I am not fond of the cropping.
3 - dull bluish background coloration // over whitness of face 3 - The coloring makes the background look nice, but her face is way too bright 3 - the image is very bright and a tad over sharpened. 3 - it looks like an overexposed photograph.... I like the intention of the iconmaker here, but it makes Tori appear over washed out. 3 - The image is much too sharp and you can hardly see her facial features, due to too much light in the icon.
4 - the blurred/rounded edges bring down the quality of the icon. 4 - Would have worked better without the border.
5 - text just doesn't seem to fit the theme or the icon 5 - the grey overlay makes Tori look washed out.
POSITIVE VOTES 1 - Simple and elegant. Sometimes simplicity can be the most beautiful. I also like the coloring.
2 - nice texture!
4 - very simply done cut with a good border - simple = beautiful 4 - i love the border work, and the subtle coloring adjustments give the image an "almost-vintage" look.
5 - nice cropping, and the text works well 5 - gorgeous coloring and text use 5 - very pretty coloring and cropping
