It's refreshing to see that there are several different versions of those icons/thumbs out there. The colours are straightforward without being too oppressive and intense and the little "bubbly" effect is a good eye catcher. Most of the icons of this kind that I have seen so far easily drown on a deviant's profile even if they have bright colours, so making them move was a very smart idea since it immediately attracts attention. The one thing that really bothers me is the fact that some of the words are very hard to read. The small white letters could be a pixel or two bigger and on the red and blue ones the "Closed" and "Friends Only" text almost disappears on the background colour. Yet still, this is a great version of the much used status icons.
Beautiful effect on these! My would be that I'm having just a bit of trouble reading the top line of text; I'm not sure if it's the color, the font or the combo, but I would love to see a sample of one with a darker, coordinated color for the top line of text. Otherwise, these are just exquisite!
