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'm such a sheep but this a very good idea!

Personally, I love them. My only qualm is the lack of a defining border.
It could just be a personal habit of mine, but I feel icons look so much cleaner if they have at least a one-pixel black (though any color would do) border around the edge.

That way, it looks good with any color as it's background.

Could just be me, though.

some, like the naomi watts, are gorgeous (although the tiny text is a big enough flaw to make me automatically skip). but you fall victim to INCREDIBLY stupid captions in the leighton post. seriously, wtf? "XX HER SONG"? you say you don't believe in messing with what works in that post--so don't. let the famous artwork speak for itself. i promise you, it can manage.

although the tiny text is a big enough flaw to make me automatically skip This statement begs the question...why didn't you?

Thanks for the feedback, because I agree with you on some of the captions on those Leighton icons and I regret some of them now that I've had a chance to go back and look, but I think you could have said that without being such a jerk. I thought this was supposed to be about eliminating hostility.

I really love some of your icons (like the blue and flowers ones) and some not really so much (the Fray ones). I think it's the borders; especially on 2 and 3. I think they'd look better without them. But I do love your work!
