Just a question for you all (and including the iconists) on my flist.

When you are making an icon, do you just fall in love with a specific colour and you find that for a moment, your brain is fixated on that particular colour?

For example.

RED



BLACK



And now BLUE



Maybe I'm just wierd and I unconsciously colour coordinate my usericons. -_-

Nah. I pick a color that suits the particular picture that I'm working with, I never stick to one theme.

I think I just fixate way too easily.

I usually don't fixed myself on a color while making icons. Most of the time, the image itself and my current mood seems to have a huge impact on what color I'm going to pick for an icon.

But sometimes, (when I have to much time on my hands) I tend to create the same icon in different colors or working with color gradients on it to get a better overview on what's the most fitting color for the the image.

Hey, I'm totally weird because I always sort my laundry by colors while I hang out the laundry. xD

Most of the time I go with the colours in the icons and enhance them rather than just go with one colour. I think it rather depends on the image you're working with as far as what you can do with it. If I'm making a batch though they do sometimes tend to have a similar colour theme.

~Well, I don't really make icons or anything (my graphic-making skills are pretty non-existent), but I do know that Breyzy's mentioned having color/shading preferences at times. In some of her earlier icons, she tended to favor bluer shades and undertones...and more recently it seems like she's been having a preference for redder or yellower ones. She's mentioned it once or twice before, but more off-hand...so I think it might be more unconscious on her end too, though I suppose it could also just be due to which colors she thinks an image might look best in (haha, I'm not really sure if that made any sense at all--sorry about that!). :D

You know, I think that maybe it's just that hwen the colour preference clicks in my mind, it subconsciously forms how I do icons, and perhaps I search for pictures unconsciously that would look well in that colour that I'm thinking of. It's just speculation on my part since I am not aware of how my mind exactly works yet.

I sometimes get fixated on specific textures, effects... and any number of things, really. Depends on my mood, I guess?

When it comes to manga icons I'm fixated on pink/red icons the most. Of course I have the tendency of using psd's of old icons I liked the coloring of. XD Anime icons on the other hand, I just like enhancing the colors pretty much and adding a texture or two.

The blue Mio one is gorgeous.
