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 100% think you're one of the best icon makers on LiveJournal or anywhere else on the internet.

you icons are ok

i like your icons but your attitude to people is shit so that makes me not request from you

True at times you can be a little rude but that's really not what this is about.

Your icons seem to get better with each one you make, as of lately I think their looking really great.

You're icons are decent. I'll give you that. Better than I make.

But you're horribly rude to everyone. It seems that you hate everyone.

And, I've noticed in many communities, you ignore certain peoples requests. It makes me not want to request from you cause I could say something slightly wrong & you'd never make for me again.

God, I'm glad you did this!

Char, I think you're actually pretty talented as a maker. You've definetly improved over the last few months, and you keep improving.

But, I wish you would work on your attitude as much as you work on your graphics. =/

You're such a hothead sometimes, always jumping to conclusions and bitching at people without any real provication. It's no wonder that you've become lj's most-hated at times, your attitude needs a serious adjustment.

Instead of jumping down people's throats when you think they're being rude, take five minutes and ASK them simply, "Hey, is this what you meant by what you said?."

Try a little courtesy, a little manners, a little niceness, and people will probably actually like you.

Since this was about graphics, not attitude, here:
* Try using other colors than pink, blue, and purple. Yes, I know they're your favorites, but they aren't everyones, and versatility is a good trait in a maker.
* Look through a few tutorials Tuts don't make you a bad maker, they can actually be very helpful in developing as a maker.

I really wish that when you posted icons, they weren't all the same. They all look practically identical. Please try for some variation.

Agreed with what everyone says about attitude. You give yourself a double-standard and are rude, and that makes people disinclined to like you. Wonder why you needed to attach the 'no immature comments' message. -.-

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE your icons. I love the colors of them especially. I'm a huge fan of pastels. They are definitely my favorites :oD They're classy and simple. I love them :o)

Your stuff's gotten better but it's still not up where I know you want it to be.
Your icon subject's face doesn't always have to be in the same spot, nor does the text ALWAYS have to be across the bottom. Switch it up a bit.
They're all kind of washed out. I'm not a fan of that at all, try making them a bit more vibrant or something.
http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f266/scarlettfever91/Examples/knj.png on that icon she kind of looks like she has some weird skin disease, you should watch out for things like that.

Also you must use things from other people, yet I can't find ANY sort of resources.

i like your icons, they're certainly pretty. i just don't think they're amazing. & you're not the best, yet you have this snobby attitude sometimes like you think you're queen of the world. if you were nicer to people, they would have so much more respect for your work. you are a decent</i> icon maker. everything you make is similar, & i do get tired of the same colours over & over again, but that's your prerogative. i just don't see why all the drama is necessary, you seem to like attacking & provoking people with very little grounds to stand on.

overall, i think you're growing as a maker. but you need to work on more variation within in your icons, & using colours that aren't always the same washed-out pastels. you appeal to a limited amount of people that way, which you may say is fine, but you can't be the best maker until you have the greatest amount of people requesting from you. the best maker appeals to as many lj users as they can.

You're actually getting a fair bit better. :) Keep up the work and try to make them look a bit different than all the other makers out there - originality is key.
