Since there's a lot of icon hostility floating around, I decided to do this:
-Comment with your username and people will comment with what they feel about your icons. COMMENT TO THOSE PEOPLE ANONYMOUSLY, even if it's good or bad. Feel free to use examples, but please try not to hotlink. If you need to, use a regular link to an image.

So, anonymous is on, IP is off. PIMP THIS PLEASE.
And please don't be rude when commenting, there is a difference between constructive and destructive criticism.

Also, even if you feel like you're not the best icon maker, please comment anyway, or comment to other people. This is supposed to help people grow, and see their strengths and weaknesses.

Your icons are some of the best I have seen. But do you think you could do a batch of black and white ones? Just for variety, if your muse permits.

I'll give this a shot, constructive criticism is always good.

your icons are very lovely :) i really only have two qualms about them: i'd suggest working on text. it's a tough thing to master, i know, and some people (like me xD) have just given up on it completely. even though it's difficult to make text look really nice, it is, of course possible ;) and, though your text isn't the best that i've seen, it definitely isn't the worst (if that's any better xP) ANYWAY, what i'm trying to say is that you have potential in the text area, and it can only get better from here, so keep up the great work :)
another things i'd suggest would be to try not to over sharpen your bases; some of your icons, not all, look a little but like you went a little too sharpen tool happy xD

just some things i'd keep in mind :) i hope that i didn't sound too mean xP

Oi. Why not.
Icon Cache currently hosts all my icons, but I am ever-so-slowly trying to bring fishpwnsgfx up-to-date.

I like the simplicity of your icons, and I love the coloring. Sometimes your pics aren't very clear or the coloring causes their contrast to be a little wacky, making it hard to clearly see the picture. But mostly, I think you do a very nice job. :)

I love the colors you use in your icons, they are certainly more varied and brighter than any other style I've ever seen and it makes them shine and stand out beautifully. I don't like the big text you use on some icons but you use it wisely, in that it covers up nothing important in the icon, so that's just personal preference. Same goes for the grid lines you frequently use but you make it look good and they blend right in on some icons. All in all, you have a gorgeous style, one that's colorful and has wonderful texture usage.

Fantastic. I love your POTO and Wicked icons especially. I'll be honest, your style reminds me alot of belegwathien's graphics, and I was skeptical about you copying her, but your own style has developed and your icons are wonderful. And fortunately I don't have any other criticism other than that. :D

I love the simplicity of your BBM icons; they don't even seem to need words because the simplicity is so true to the movie you can almost hear them talking. I had a very hard time not snatching them all and I settled for one from each post. Took my nearly a decade to decide. Your BBM icons are some of my favorites on lj.

The icons in my icon journal kind of suck, because I haven't updated in forever, but eh... I'll bite.

I have one suggestion for you - try to be more decisive. Don't post so many variations on the same icon. It makes it difficult to really look at your icons, because it's hard to focus on just one. It's hard to tell what you *intended* when you have so many versions of your icons and I can't even tell the difference between some of them. You're the artist - choose which one, or which ones, you like best. You're in charge, here!

oops - disregard that please :)
