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.

I think your textures are a little bit overpowering as well as the text. I think the powerful textures are great for icons that are simply text because that has a certain flare. Though with images with the textures there is simply too much going on in the icon.

I think if you focused on lowering the blending on the textures layer, that it would blend into the image much nicer and be less overpowering.

On the most recent post I saw of yours on giggled, it went from nice icons, to really crappy ones (laguna biotch - wtf happened?), to really nice ones, to nice ones. There's no consistancy. I really liked your third set of icons -- but I guess I just liked the brushes/textures you used. I think the last set was nice, as well, but a little dark. I think you could definitely use adding some color splash effects to your icons, like the third set had (the spring/beach ones, right?).

Oh, why not?
You have to scroll down a bit to get to my last post. :)

I think you have nice icons, but you should definitely lay off that font (dyspepsia, is it?) you used on the text icons, and the lighten layer effect (it looks bad on quite a few of those icons).

the first thing that I thought was that they were run-of-the-mill, there's not something special or unique about them. Try messing around with different textures and colors, stuff that you don't see a lot. experiment with odd font colors too, i noticed a lot of the same or hard-to-see type.

i like that your icons are more vivid and bold these days. there's also a lot of great (and amusing) humor to be found. just keep loving what you're doing and i'll continue to love everything you put out.

(and your tutorials are cool as well.)

I really like how you've developed your icon style from a little while ago. Time ago, you used to use the same pale and "washed-out" effect, and recently now you are using more color variations within your icons .. and I really like that. All I can really say is keep up the amazing work - and your paid examples are amazing. I just so wish I had the money for paid work :o
