Hurrah! Legal screencaps have come! ;))

Flam: Gorgeous lighting. I love 1, 4, and 8 especially.

HMSwanwhite: I like the sort of blurred look you have on the second one from your first post, very nice work. The Susan ones all have such lovely colors.

Wunderkind: I really like your cropping and composition on 3 and 6 and you're lovely, clear coloring on 4.

Image Image Image Image Image

The fourth one kind of cracks me up. ;)) Such swagga'!

Haven't been here in such a long time, I'm so sorry. :( Lots to catch up on... I can only comment on the current page at the mo' but I've had a look at previous pages and there's lots of lovely work there. :)

Kate: The sunlight on yours is beautiful! Especially #1 and #2

Just a few quick ones from me. C & CC welcome.

Just a few comments:
Lover, That's alright, just whenever you can get to it. :) Oh, and if you can, I use GIMP, so if it's translatable that'd be great. ;)
Wunder, could you do a tutorial for this icon? Pretty please? ;;)

Kate, those are beautiful! I love #1, 3, and 5. :D
lizzy, those are great! I love the pictures you used and the b&w! :)

A few of mine:

I love that last picture of Ben! ;))

C and CC are great! Feel free to use, credit would be nice if you do ;)

Page 81...

HM, first post: great job on #1! I really like the coloring! Second post: great work on #2 and 3! The coloring and cropping both are great!
WunderLu, oooh, I love #4! The coloring is so bright and clear! Great job! :)

Page 82...

Kate, ahhh, such pretty avatars! I love the coloring on all of them, but particularly #1-3! (And I agree with you about #4. ;)) )
Lizzy, really good work with the black and white! They have a good balance of contrast. My favorites are #1, 2, and 5!
Girly, what fun coloring! My favorites are #1, 3, and 4! The first image of Georgie is adorable, I love the shot of them in #3, and #4 is a really good picture of Ben!
HM, good work again! My favorite is #1, because you can see her and her reflection; makes for a neat shot. :) Good design in the last two as well.
Keia, lovely work, per usual. :) My favorites are #2, 5, and 6! I just love the solitary feeling of #6!

Some new work from me (at least, they were new when I made them a couple weeks ago. ;) )...

Image Image Image
Image Image Image

*glances at the batch* Uh, yeah. So I was on a blue kick. :P And I couldn't decide which texture to use on #2 and 3. I really like #1, though. :)

Anyone can use with credit. C&CC welcome.

Kate, great avatars! I love how Lucy looks in #1 and #2, how Eustace looks indignant in #3, and Ed's "swagga" in #4! :D

lizzyhenley009, superb job! I especially like #4, and Georgie's face in #5! :ymapplause:

campgirl, oh yeah! Those are very cool! #3 is very sweet and fun, and #4 makes me want to stare at Ben for quite some time! :D

HM Swanwhite, your avatars are divine! I like how you used a touch of pink in all of them, and #1 looks awesome! :)

Aravis Autarkeia, I really adore your work! The coloring of #2 and #6 is marvelous, and I loved #5! :ymapplause:

flambeau, magnific! I love the ones with Caspian near the water, and #6 was very funny! :D

lover of narnia, holey moley, those are fabulous! #1, #11, #15, and #20 are lovely and fantastic! :D

Thanks for the comments y'all! :ymhug:

Shas, Nice! I like the cropping of all the avatars. My favorites are: 3, 4, 5 and 6. Though 3 might be a tad over sharpened, I love the image. :)
flambeau, Thanks so much! :ymhug: I already tried out the tutorial, and I'm enjoying it so much! More gorgeous ones from you, I see! :D 1-3 are lovely. The backgrounds go very well with them, and I love the grungy feel of the text behind Ed. Also your coloring on 3 is just as lovely as ever, and the blues are so vivid. 4 is awesome. Lovely lighting, and coloring, and also the sharpness of it is perfect! The text goes wonderful as well. 5 and 6. :-o Fantastic! 5's coloring is beyond wonderful! The blending is flawless, the background and the coloring...Oh! Magnifique! 6 is the same way. :D Wonderful lighting! I'd love a tutorial on 5, but if not that, I'd love the background texture you used. :) Awesome job! :ymapplause:

Some more from me. :)
