    Heh... Everybody seems to like that "Luke's Hand" icon, including me. That was a great idea.

    Thanks duskwings!

    Darkwoman, I love the first icon on the second row--that background works well, I think.

    Nashira, I really like "Maul Standing" and "Sneak Attack"!! Leia's got a great face in that one, and the colors are good.

    Sorry, Amidala. I've been waiting for a Lando lego for years. :D He, along with Han and R2 are favorite characters of mine and I love legos of them. Leia is great as well. :cool:

    Sorry, Amdiala. I've wanted a Lando lego for a LONNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGG time. :)

    If only the set wasn't so expensive. :(

    I mean it has Han [face_love], Leia :), and Lando [face_love], I want this so bad. I just can't afford it and have no room for it. :_|

    Anyway.... I'll stop with the giddy fangirl bit now. [face_blush] :D

    Jedi_Knight150 : And I thought Leia's hair in the movies was wacky. :p Nice Obi-Wan Icon. I like the different backgrounds/borders you've experimented with. :)
    Bria : Great Lando lego! :D They were hesistant about making Lando Lego for a while because of his skin colour right? Why the turn around?
    nashira : Nice! I especially love your Leias. [face_love]
    JoinTheSchwarz : Like the target Stormie! :D
    DarkWoman : Great Mystril. I like how you are experimenting with the backgrounds and such.
    Malz4JESUS : Your Madine Icons look very washed out (source pic may not have been the best... I had trouble trying the same Icon). I'd suggest you play around with brightness/contrast and hue/saturation.
    Dubya_Scott : Yoda is my favourite out of your latest batch. :)
    Theron : I like your second Jerec the most.
    C-3PX : Good stuff. ;)
    Darth_China : Wow, all your latest Icons are wonderful. Wat Tambor looks especially good.

    GS : I think [link=http://www.dirtyrubbish.com/customicons/ep3/anakinevil_ep3_wen5.gif]this[/link] is my best Anakin Icon. Would you be able to replace one of my Anakin Icons currently on the page with this one?/>

    Thanks Wenley! Great Madine icons! And I also prefer that last Anakin icon. :)

    I made 2 slightly different versions of the Anakin picture.

    [link=http://www.geocities.com/darth_china/]here[/link] they are.

    I prefer the 2nd one. :)

    They FINALLY made a Lego Lando! [face_laugh] Boy, I bet they've gotten some angry letters from the "this implies all other Legos are Caucasian" camp!

    Umm . . . Hi

    I don't want to interrupt, but I feel a little out of place. I'm not an Icon-maker, but I have a question about the icons on this board.

    First, let me say thank you for all the fabulous icons (all of) you have created. They are really great.

    My question is this: Are there any restrictions on the use of these images? I mean, is permission from Lucasfilm required for use of the images?

    This is one of those intellectual property questions. Why am I asking? Because I'm a nark . . . er, I mean, just kidding ;).

    Seriously, I'm managing a small web-based forum at my work and one of the users worries that my use of "copyrighted" images as user icons might be in violation. I figured that you have already asked this question and have an answer.

    Published images, such as from movies and books, we usually consider free to use. They are public, and we're not making money off of them.

    Images from artists that aren't published, such as fan art, I usually ask permission before using them.

    As for using icons from icon makers, asking permission is probably best. Especially since they'll probably be flattered.

    This is pretty much the way I see it but maybe the mods have some more info on exact legalities.

    I like Bria's "Dani" icon. In fact, I think that the Literature forum could use some more of the Marvel comics' characters like Kiro. It's only been recently that we've gotten Plif and another Hoojib.

    Malz4JESUS: I like your Qui-Gon with lightsaber icon. Just shut up is great too. :D

    skywalker325: I think your facial close up of Tiin is the best one.

    Darth China: I didn't know that Palpatine up for votes was yours. I think it's great. Your Wat Tambor is good, but too dark. I think lighting him would make it look better.

    Theron: I like your Biker scout. Nice rancor and Old Ben too.

    C-3PX: Nice work with Indy. Perhaps a little closer in on the shots would be better though?

    Dubya_Scott: Bobo. [face_laugh] I like it. Nice SOTME icons too.

    JoinTheSchwarz: Great Odan Urr. I never was happy with the version I made of him, but I like yours.

    Mystril Shadow Guard: Good Mystril Shadow Guard work. It's hard to pick a fav.

    jedi_knight150: Great Leia icon. I like it.

    Mech-E_Jedi: The images are copyrighted by Lucasfilm, but no profit is being made from them, so it's allowed.

    nashira: I think Merrejk looks good (who is he though?) and I really enjoy that Lando. :D

    They were hesistant about making Lando Lego for a while because of his skin colour right? Why the turn around?

    I'm not sure, darth_wenley, but I'm glad they changed their minds. Now maybe Mace can have a Lego too. ;)
