Thanks so much for the feedback. I'm especially glad you like 'two fonts' because I wasn't sure about the text work on that icon!

these are so great! the colors are fantastic. i really love the colors on animalistic, smug, warm, and cat 2 and 3. i also really love the text on two fonts and cat 1, and the background of animalistic. i also really like how brush strokes has an artistic/graffiti type of feel to it, the interesting crop of ombre, and the negative space on cozy! not sure if it was intentional or not, but i love how the gold+red on the sides of cozy and how it kind of reflects the opposition going on between k/s in the icon? if that makes sense, lol. regardless, wonderful set!

Oh wow! This comment is made of win!!

Thank you so, so much for leaving such amazing feedback! I'm really super nervous about working with text so I'm glad that that particular aspect stood out to you on some of these. Also 'brush strokes' was such an experimental icon that I almost binned it and submitted something else instead. I'm really glad I didn't now!

I'm gonna be honest, absolutely nothing about 'cozy' was intentional! Well, I started out with having this idea of Kirk/Spock standing close together and kind of bathing them in warm colours to suit the theme. Initially I had them on a red/orange/yellow background, but then I found the center texture (that neutral coloured block they're currently set against) and when I added that all the pretty border stuff just happened on it's own!

I'm glad you liked the icon anyway despite the slightly 'let's just wing it' way it came together! And thank you again for the amazing comments!

I wish he didn't look so attractive in Smug, haha. He's a spitting image of young Shatner in that one!

They all look great :D

I know right? I just could pass up the opportunity to use that cap when I saw the theme ;D

Absolutely great cropping in two fonts (and great colouring) and especialy AC2 and AC3. Really striking. I also really love the way the category set looks. You can tell it's a set and yet the icons are so fastly diferent. Great use of colouring and brushes in arrows- you took an interesting and creative approach.

Great composition on animalistic and arrows and I really like all the very different shades of you blue you got on your category set.
