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.

kick ass. The color of your stuff pops, and I've seen you go form beginner to advanced, you've improved so much.

It seems like in various icons you can see all the elements of truly amazing icons, your downfall is that sometimes one of those elemts is missing. Example, in your most recent post, 94 (of Ron) is interesting cropping, but the image quality is a bit over pixilated. #3 has nice image quality and cropping, but the brush is a bit overwhelming. Sometimes it seems like you have a really good design and layout concept, but the brushes and light textures kind of take over the icon.
But bear in mind, there are also lots of icons here that nicely combine all the best without the problems. In particular 44, 97, 143 and 154. I'm just pointing out the problems because it seems like if you can solve the problems your icons will really jump even higher in quality!

If you sharpened instead of over doing the contrast it would make your icons look a ton clearer and much prettier. Also center crop=no.

The icon coloring is wonderful. And you always touch up on a multitude of fandoms satisfying such a large target audience.

I love your icons. You are so creative and daring and different in your icon making and that doesn't happen very often. I think that is what I appreciate about your icons the most. How they really do stand out and how most of the times, despite that you try several styles, I can see when it's an icon you made or not. But yeah, the creativity in your icons is always there and you use such different coloring, but it's always gorgeous.

The only thing that I could suggest to you though, is playing with the cropping some more. You have good cropping from time to time, but if you played with that some more, you could make your icons stand even more out. And watch the sharpness in your icons, sometimes it's not sharpened enough and it loses it's feel that way.
