Thank you all for the wonderful comments! :)

@ Becca, I'm afraid that a tutorial for #5 in my last batch is a big no-can-do. I'm absolutely clueless about what coloring I used. ;)) Sorry about that! I'll send you the background texture soon. :)
Lovely icons! I love the super close crop on #2, the split-screen on #3, and the negative space on #6! They're all very striking! :)
Dee!! :D Graphics from you! Yay! Totally love #3, 4, 7, 8, and 9! Love the cropping on #9! 'Tis highly epic. :P
WunderLu, oooh! I love the blending on #2, and the negative space on #4 is very striking! I also really like #3. :)

Some more new ones from me. Sorry for the variations. I'm indecisive. ;))

Thanks to WunderLu for the text texture in #2.

Oh, what lovely graphics! (Why doesn't my RSS reader only pick up a smattering? Grr...) Gorgeous coloring on those Susan avis (and the running Lucy ones), HM Swanwhite. *saves* Flambeau, that final one of Peter, square inside a square, is brilliant. :) Everyone is doing a stellar job! :)

Credit is great, comments make me smile, and a quick PM/shout-out to let me know you're using one makes my day! :)

Wow - all of the posts above are amazing - great graphics!! :ymapplause:

theprincessspy: Great job, you're very creative!! The 4th one is really lovely, I love the blurriness, and the words. The 5th one is so adorable, she has such a cute smile, great job on that! And the 9th one is amazing!!! :ymapplause: Colors on the last two are really cool!!
Wunderkind_Lucy: Wow so pretty!! So many bright and clear colors! It's really hard to pick a favorite, but I LOVE 12, 14, 15 and 17. :) Great job!! :ymapplause:
lizzyhenley009: Your colors are so beautiful - I love 2, 4 and 5. :ymapplause:

Thanks for all the comments on my latest batches!

Page 82...

Dee, The tutorial is done! It's not the best, so very sorry. You can see it here. Gorgeous avatars from yourself! Lovely, warm, blue, coloring there. :)) My favorites are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. Wonderful! :ymapplause:
Wunder_Lu, I think you already know how much I love these. :D Your coloring is beautiful, and your blending is very well done. I like: 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7. Awesome! :ymapplause:

Page 83...

flam, Alright! That's fine, I perfectly understand. ;) Ravishing graphics, as always! Lovely textures and coloring on all of them. I'm really liking the levels and black lines. My favorites are: 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6. Great, great, job! :ymapplause: :ymapplause:
theprincessspy Nice! :) I really like the croppings and the black frames. My favorites are: 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13.
Wunder_Lu (First post) OH! So lovely! And so many! :D Gorgeous textures and coloring. My favorites are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15,17 and 18. Awesome! (Second post) Pretty! :D My favorites are 2 and 3. My only CC is that on 4, the text is a little distracting at the texture a bit over powering. But good job! :ymapplause:
LizzyHenely009 Very, very, pretty coloring! :) It's lovely, really! I like: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 9. Keep it up! :ymapplause:

Finally, I found some time to make some new Narnian graphics.

Comments:

flambeau, I love the way you did them with two pictures. Especially the two Lucy ones.

tps, I love the Ed ones. They're so pretty with the blurring at the edges and coming through the window.

wunderking_lucy (first post), I like them all! You have such lovely coloring especially on 2, 5, 8, and 14.

lizzyhenley, I love the blue-purple coloring and the cropping on all of them. One little bit of constructive-criticism: some of them look like they were stretched a bit vertically. Maybe fix that? Other than that, they're lovely.

wunderkind_lucy (second post), beautiful ones again! I love number 1!

lover of narnia, I love your coloring! I love the way you did 2 with the light streak in the middle and at the bottom corners.

(In case no has noticed yet, I am obsessed with coloring!)

Image Image Image Image Image
Image Image Image Image Image

Textures by hyaline12, wunderkind_lucy, and Aravis_Autarkeia.

Tutorials (very loosely) on 1, 2, and 5 by Wunderkind_Lucy. By very loosely, I mean that I follow the tutorial for the first 1 - 10 steps or so and then I think "HEY, I love the way that looks! How about if I do this now?" and then I go my own way with it. Or, I try to remember how I kind of followed the tutorial the last time and do what I can remember and mess around with it a bit. So I never actually finish a tutorial. :p ;;) \:D/

C and CC appreciated. No permission necessary but please credit if you use!

Comments:
narnian_at_heart: Very pretty! My favorites are 5, which has lovely coloring (the dark edge is a nice touch as well), 7, 8, and 10 (nice texture choice).
lover of narnia: #1 is adorable - dear Susan. :) Great job with the text! #2 is splendid. Stunning coloring and blending! :ymapplause:
Wunderkind_Lucy: 1st Post: I like 7 and 8 - texture backgrounds are very neat, and you do a great job with them. :) But my favorites are the VDT Lucy ones. 12 so pretty! 19 also stands out, unique and very well done. 2nd Post: Great job blending on 1, and 3 is so pretty. You nailed the coloring on that one!
lizzyhenley009: I like your coloring on this batch - it works best on the Aslan and Reep avis. My favorite is #5 - nice cropping!
theprincessspy: I like 4 - great job matching textures and text to fit the image! #12 is my other favorite - lots of fun!
flambeau: beautiful job with the VDT avis! :ymapplause: I like those a lot. Especially 1-3!


Avis:
Please note that I did not make these avis! I requested them on LJ and will label who made what. I just thought that others might like to see these lovely text avis, especially the MN ones, considering we may be getting a movie soon...

These three LB text avatars were made by kauniimpiminua on LiveJournal. (My favorite is #3)
Image Image Image

These eight MN text avatars were made by nnyleinahpets on LiveJournal.
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image
I like that last one best of this batch. :)


The two avi makers are fine with anyone using, as long as they get credit. :)

Marvelous work, everyone! :D
Wunderkind_lucy: All of yours are so beautiful and creative, that its really hard to choose a favorite! :ymapplause: :ymapplause: I really like 2 and 3, and 4, of course, made me think of Libby . . :P Great job!!
flambeau: Wow - as soon as I looked at your batch, that first one caught my eye - it's so beautiful! :D All of your colorings are great, I have to like 1, 2 and 4 the best.
narnian_at_heart: I really like all of yours - you did a great job capturing some facial expressions that are sometimes un-noticed. :) 1, 4 and 5 are my favorites, I think, but it's hard to choose! :ymapplause:
Adeona - LOVE all of yours! :D :ymapplause:
flambeau again . . :P: I love the first four really, really much - it really captures Edmund's feelings and stuff - but they're all excellent. Great coloring! :ymapplause:

Those are lovely Ithilwen! My favorite is the Caspian 'search' one.
Gael is so cute. :)
(By the way, do you go by Ithilwen or Riella?)

Here are some Lucy avvies. Again, many variations on one because I'm indecisive. :ymblushing:

Kira: Very nice texture use and coloring on #4! I hope you don't mind me saying that the first three feel a little too "Busy" Your cropping is nice, though!
Ithilwen: Lovely coloring on these! Particularly #1. Do you think you could do a tutorial on that one? ;;) Also, the Gael avi is adorable! You did a great job cropping it.
Elanor: Thank you, :) but I just wanted to make sure you knew that those avis aren't by me - they were made by two different members on LiveJournal, kauniimpiminua and nnyleinahpets.
flambeau: Beautiful Ed avis! :-o It's really hard to choose, but I would say 1 and 6 are the best.
