Icon Truth Meme

Since there's a lot of icon hostility floating around, I decided to do this:
ICON TRUTH MEME
-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.

SO DO IT. THANKS.

I guess I don't know your icons good enough to say if they're good or not,
but the ones I know are very nice and I really like your style!
So, I wouldn't mind using one of your icons for lj ^^

Pretty nice. They're mostly bases from what I see. You need to watch to make sure that you only used the *highest* quality images for your bases, though, as some of them are really bad quality, such as the Cherry Coke icon you posted as a preview. Your text needs to have anti-alias on, and blend in a *little* bit more. Play with the layer styles for that. Also, work on your croppping a little bit. Otherwise, you have a pretty good talent there.

You have really good coloring and text placement. I suggest experimenting more with cropping.

Christi, obsessivedrmer, stole your icon style. You can tell...ever since she got back in the graphic design hobby, her icon look so identical to yours. Christi, it's time to grow up and do your own shit. Stop being so fucking lazy. But Ashley, before your icon talent dropped, I really liked them, that is before Christi took it. I just hope you'll be able to regain it back. I've been a member at eyekons for a looooong time, and since then, it really got be discouraged to be a member there. Do something, please? Other than that, your icon style was perfect, before the tragedy.

*...it really got me discouraged... (hehehe, sorry, had to fix your typo!) & yes, Chrisi, you did get lazy. Stealing someone elses style/remaking it, is just more than lazy actually. Good job Ashley, though.

I love them, they are so original, and not too blinky-ish that looks trashy, very elegant. I wish you would make over my journal!

You need to work on your text on your icons. On your blends/banners, it's pretty nice. You also need a new pixel font, as shown on this: http://i1.tinypic.com/v4rkv9.jpg banner. I'd suggest grudblitter or ernest. Either one has a pretty nice effect. You have pretty nice blending of your pictures into the background on your icons, which is way gorgeous. Your icons usually end up a little bit on the dark side, though, so try and get them a little lighter before you completely finish with them.

Gorgeous job.

You have talent, but you tend to copy what everyone else is doing. Originality is important.

The only other thing I have to say is don't tell people you turned of IP when you didn't. It's kind of pathetic.
