Of course the do, just look at me lol :)

But that’s not the point. The purpose of a logo is not to present an accurate illustration of mankind. Do I really want a strange looking face as my company logo, where people wonder what the looking at? Nope!

I’m at the rest: simplify it and you will have it accepted.

Cheers

I was wondering about the exact same thing the other day. Just fix your preview and reupload. Then submit for it to be reviewed again.

Cheers

Honestly, the whole thing looks like copy and paste of various elements to me, but not one flowing design. Somehow it doesn’t feel connected.

Sorry I can’t be more precise, it’s just a feeling I’m having when I see it.

$1 per watch – but I would like to see a sample before comitting :) I have an intern here who’s bored … otherwise I wouldn’t dive into this :D

Automatic actions were never get you the same quality results results manual adjustments will give you. So it’s really a question of how much time/money you are prepared to invest or how much quality you are prepared to sacrifice.

There are some actions out there Which can do this for you, I have to admit that I have not tried them personally though. I usually either do it myself or hire someone to do it for me (see Mudi’s proposal above) when I need top quality cutouts.

It may be worth your while taking a look at something like this:

Ah! That make sense, sorry, that’s my bad, I looked at the samples but didn’t really think about the implications of the smart object.

It would probably be a good idea to include that in the description as any non-savvy photo shop users may not be aware of that.

Having sat that, from a pure style point of view, I still think it should look as great as the samples I gave above, and honestly for the moment I don’t think it does. But again, maybe the preview doesn’t do your file justice?

Cheers

Well done on the achievements!

You’ve got some really nice files there, I’m sure they’ll keep selling for a while. Things like the stamp styles will always have an interest. Other things like the retro themed gui will probably be out of fashion at some point.

I would estimate it’s hit and miss. The more generic files were probably have a longer lifespan. However that’s just me thinking out loud, I do not have any empiric evidence to support my theory :)

Well done on the sales! Always nice to see when quality pays off…

Cheers

You are a brave man investing so much time on an item that’s top spot on the “not needed” list! So the return is well-deserved. Definitely an awesome set of icons!

Cheers

I would think that the problem with the file is that it simply does not have the quality of similar files available.

Take a look at these for example:

http://graphicriver.net/item/dimensions-3d-generator-action/234665 http://graphicriver.net/item/new-3d-text-styles/151424

So as a potential customer I have no incentive of buying your file. You really need to offer something of similar quality to the above – maybe even adding a unique touch.

Cheers

Chris
