Just a little pimping...



Yes! Because I'm trying to get the XS Icontest community up and running again! :D

I'd join, but someone at a community decided that only a certain style/type for icons was "good," and since some people there told me my icons were "not good", for the most part, my icon creative juices went out the door.

I think I've made exactly one icon since then.
Co-mod here.

You don't have to have bad icons or good icons to join. This isn't a critism icontest it's a voting contest. Plus if the mods think your icon is good they'll choose it for their Mod's Choice. You have a chance!
Well, overall the whole thing just ruined my inspiration... since their comments, I just haven't been able to really do icons, period (it took me about 6 weeks to do the Mallah/Brain one I just used).

I'll have to see if something can spark it again.
I'm guessing it was one of those 'elite' communities? Urgh... *pats* Don't worry about it. Just forget that, icon snobs suck anyway. In the icontest, there's no standard of icons that the contestants must adhere to.

^^ Just relax and try to get inspired by things again. You're the one who's always making icons of Beast Boy, am I right?
Yeah, it was one of those "elite" communities - though it was just starting out at the time (it was only open for a week when I "applied")

Yeah, Beast Boy icons are my specialty (I do run the biggest Beast Boy fansite on the net ;) ).
I don't like those... I mean, if membership is exclusive, wouldn't an icon-maker get more hits by posting in a regular graphics community or something? But oh well... *pats* They may have said your icons weren't "good" but that's their standard. Icon snobs... Psh...

You mean... It's Not Easy Being Green?

They didn't seem to care about "hits" - they decided to set "criteria" for "good" icons. Personally, most of what they deemed "good", I wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole.

That's me... the most openly obsessive Beast Boy fangirl on the net XD
Gr... Like Raven from That's So Raven said, That may be "the" look, but it's not the only look. I've seen some of those elite icons and it's mostly stuff like blends, colouring and images. Good stuff but they used effects that were actually a bit commonplace. I just don't get why there has to actually be a criteria... *shakes head*

YAY FANGIRLS! :D
You stopped making icons, all on account of their negative commentary? Hey, don't let someone elses' arrogance stifle your creativity; you're only hurting yourself. Just take their criticism in stride. With attitudes like theirs, no one but like-minded pomps will have any regard for what they have to say, anyway.
