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.

your stuff is beautiful. i really love your style and coloring.

i know you don't do animation a whole lot, but the only animation i see on your examples page is "glowy" animation. you may want to do a little more variation whenever you do decide to animate an icon, or at least give a bit more variety on your examples page.

again, gorgeous work.

thank you!

Unfortuntly my last version of animation shop gave my comptuer a virus because i got it a way i probabaly shouldnt have and i havent gotten it back since because i was so angry that i lost everything i had due to it. I used to enjoy animation a lot and did some crazy things with it in the past, but if i do indeed get it back someday i will def do some better animation.

Again thanks! :)

I love your icons. I love the colors you use most, and also the textures.

The only problem I have with your icon making is you have one style it seems, and that is it. I'd love to see more icons of different types from you.

Thank you!

Ive had this lack of inspiration issue for months now, its driving me crazy!
And due to a couple viruses i have lost everything a few times and rebuilding your PS brushes and textures over and over again gets rather annoying!

I will keep trying some new things, thanks!

I really like your icons. The only things I dislike are some of your text effects. Not all of them, but some. There are also some that I really love.

The other thing I dislike is that sometimes you make things a bit too bright for my taste, but to each their own.

You're one of the most amazing graphic makers I know. You always amaze me and raise the bar whenever I see you post new stuff.

I think you're work is great. The colors are so bright (which I love) and things you come up for the backgrounds are stunning and I think you're a super person. ;P

I do like your icons very much. However, I feel like a few above that you have one set style and then you stick with it. Personal preference, of course, but I feel like a lot of your icons look a bit washed out due to the bright colors. You have a good range of fonts although some of the smaller type fonts are hard to read or blurry (again the blurry is probably more personal preference.) You can do a great many things with your icons and that is why I enjoy them. Although I may not be a fan of the current style, I know you have and will continue to do great things with your icons if you set your creative juices to it! :)

i think everytime i see your icons, i skeet, just a little.
I wish i could have the creativity and such that you have when making icons. Your style is beautiful, It's kinda creepy that I envy your icons & such so much, lmfao.

the way you crop, your texture choice, and the text effects you use are absolute eye candy. The sweetest kind!! good job, amanda :)

I USED TO REALLY LIKE YOUR ICONS. BUT LATELY THE STYLE YOU'VE USED ISN'T PLEASING TO THE EYE IN MY OPINION. I GUESS YOU'RE TRYING OUT DIFFERENT THINGS, BUT MAYBE YOU SHOULD STICK TO WHAT YOU'RE GOOD AT.

you're pretty over-rated.
everyone always gushes over your icons but i don't think they're really anything special.
sometimes theyre nice but othertimes theyre just kinda... blah.
and it seems that you over-sharpen things lots of the time, its not very eye-pleasing. =/

I've always loved your work. ALWAYS.
Yet, I must agree with people that your work does seem to repeat itself.

so, where to start?
you've inspired me for the longest time, way before i even had photoshop. I think for almost everything you set the tone. You do what you like, for example sharpening, and people see that and because of your experimenting they get ideas and start to do the same. Yeah it sucks, the copying, but i think you totally set the standard. i think for a lot of makers, including me, you're one of the main inspirations. Lately you say that you aren't feeling very inspired but i guess after making amazing graphics for so long it's understandable! especially when your life is hectic.

basically, i adore everything you make & i say stick with it and keep suprising us with your new styles. i don't agree with the people above who said everything looks the same because it doesn't!
