Apply [24th. June, 2006//09:18 pm]
elite python graphs

elitepython

[superbeicons]
You can't just join the community, you have to get an invite first with your megalomanic graphic-skills.

Here's the rules:


-If you can't handle criticism or rejection, don't apply. We're not trying to be mean, we're just trying to tell you what you need to work on.
-Two of the mods have to say yes to your application to get accepted.
-If you won't get accepted, you can re-apply after one week. You don't have to re-apply after just one week, do it after you feel that you have improved. Or you don't have to do it at all, but I would love to see you do that. You can apply as many times as you want.
-The application must include 5-10 of your best icons. You should have some variety. If all your icons look the same, you most likely won't get accepted. The app should also include your name and name of your graphics journal or community (so I can check out your other stuff, too).
-The subject of your application must be the name of your favorite Python. That means that you've read the rules. If you subject isn't that, that's an automatic rejection.
-Remember, if you won't get accepted, don't be mad! There's always a chance to re-apply.
-If re-applying, always include a link to your past application(s).
-GOOD LUCK and enjoy. :)

Well here's my first application, let's hope for the best :)

Hmmm, looking back on them I suppose they're all...well...of Graham, haha, but I'm planning on many more that feature other Pythons.

I'm afraid I don't have a graphics journal or community, I hope that's not a problem :/

Umm... Yes

I'm going to say yes now, though you have something to work on. Cropping is wonderful. You have variety on your icons, that's always good. The coloring has great variety too but you could need some new coloring techniques, go wild with it! Try some new stuff, check out icon_tutorial.

But like I said, yes, you're in, I'll send you an invite. :)

Re: Umm... Yes

icon_coloring is also good for working on icons, but it's a lot newer. There are some lovely tutorials there especially for the coloring.

Yes

These are great. The coloring is beautiful ang cropping is nice. Overall I'd say great. I'll send an invite in a few.

Yes

I like them. The text usage is different and you use brushes well. But in the #1 of your icons the text looks a bit pixelly. It could be my screen playing its tricks but anyway.

I do suggest icon_tutorial or icon_coloring to find some great coloring tutorials. Play around, find something new. Invite is yours in a few.

Re: Yes

Thanks! And yeah, that text did come out a bit pixelly. Or... I could just blame your screen. ;)

Yes.

I love the cropping and the simplicity of these. Although you could try out more coloring techniques, so check out icon_tutorial and icon_coloring.

Invite is yours in a moment.

I know that a lot of my former icons have had cursing or crude themes in them but if I get accepted on here I won't post them if it bothers you.

I'm gonna say... No.

Sorry for the late response! I'm gonna say no, because these icons are too similar. I don't know if it's just me but I think so. The "Silly army" on has quite a potential but it would've worked better without the text. Same with the first one. The last one's a bit grainy but I like its coloring. And I like the colorings of those but I advice you to check out icon_tutorial and icon_coloring.

You've got some major potential and I'd love you to re-apply in one week!

Re: I'm gonna say... No.

Well I guess the tribe has spoken then. I don't see how my icons are all too similar but then I wouldn't would I? Ahh c'est la vie.

The last icon is grainy because the picture was grainy.

Re: I'm gonna say... No.

Yes, I understand. And I now realized that the similarity might just be that there's text in every one of them. But I sincerely hope that you re-apply!
