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.

Your icons lack of everything. The coloring part is the most obvious, most of them look like a cropped cap with text.

Not discouraging you, you need to work hard.

IN the interest of clarity I'm just going to work from your most recent batch.
A big thing to work on is image clarity. Some of the icons (eg, 8 16 and others) almost look to have like a screen, I think that's the word I'm looking for, but the contrast is almost washed out of them. Do you see what I mean?
Also I would encourage you to push your cropping a little more. In some (10, 22, 33) it's quite lovely, but in others it could definitely be more experimental (eg 6, 21, 37).
It's cool that you're experimenting with brushes, but try to make sure that they are used for some purpose in the icon, like to convey an emotion or for a specific design purpose (nicely done in 10 and 33). You don't want them to seem arbitray, which at times they can (eg 23, 15, 34).
Hope that was helpful!
