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.

Probably too overrated for your own good, but I like how your icon matter parallels my tastes. You could really do with a lot of brush moderation. Too much of them start looking gaudy after a while. Occasional constraint would be nice. This (http://www.livejournal.com/userpic/41262504/5846527) was a pretty good one. I suggest minimalize for the meantime.

youre my all time favorite icon maker. being that youre so much more talented than ill ever be, i dont feel i have a right to mention anything except this.. everything you make is gorgeous but im more attracted to your decorative icons/graphics versus the plain. plain dont do much for me other than ending up looking like the run-of-the-mill icons every other person pumps out, i like that your 'artsy' graphics have a certain look nobody else matches. i also think expanding your choice in icon subjects would be more appealing too. other than that your work is fab.

The thing about your icons that i adore is that you seem to know what you're doing.It's just floating with you.Maybe not all the time but most of it.That's what i believe anyway.You have this sense for situating your pictures, your brushes and most of all the whole thing.
Your icons just fit.Wether or not i like the "style" or whatever they just seem to be perfectly composed many of times.
Besides that you're probably one of the very first quality icon makers around.You've developped all the time, throughout the time you've been making icons.That's one thing not everyone can say about themselves.One thing most people on lj don't.Yes, the "simple style" icons may be pretty and fab and very few icon makers do develop with the time (like chouchoune or many others) but there's something about your icons that just makes me stare at them.Partially why i sticked to making icons myself for so very long.

So yeah, what i'm trying to say that wether people may or may not like the "style" of icons you do you do it with knowledge as well as loads of creativity.That's what i adore about yer icons.

If i'd have to name a thing i don't like about your icons i honestly couldn't.There may be icons i don't like (for example when it's too simple, i just don't like the look of them.But that doesn't mean that they aren't done very well.Rather rare thing as well.Even the icons i don't like i do like.), indeed but they're still you.Or something.

your icons are SO fuckin' AWESOME. I've been so jealous of your work for years. your icons look so unique and hard to make. you have your own style. I can't say enough about how much I love 'em!

I like your current style a LOT more than your old one. You've always been talented, it's just that your new stuff is more elegant and can attract people from all walks of LJ life. The simple people, the ones that like flashy shit, everyone. Just don't get into the oversharpening "trend". Please.

I have never, ever liked the corgifarm thing (evwen if many of the people in it are generally nice)... but I'm glad that it never turned you into a raging bitch (Like B##### is. Sorry, but it's true IMO. I can say no more.). It does scare me off a little, though, like when I want to ask you for graphic-making tips.

I guess that is all. If you can figure out who this is, please don't say anything.
