Hi there! Thank you for applying!

At this time, I think I'm going to have to say no. While I think creatively you are doing a fantastic job, it's the colors and contrast in your icons that I'm having the most issue with. Most, if not all of your icons are just to over-contrasted and dark. This seems to affect the overall image quality of your icons making the subjects appear too crisp and sharp. I think upping the brightness in your icons and adding more softness (such as with the guassian blur tool or a small soft smudge brush) could really overall improve your icons.

Again, thank you for applying! I hope to see you apply again with improvements.
