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.

It annoys me that you don't just accept that you make amazing icons and do more of them. Your great at them and have loads of good ideas and then you always get so worried about it! You shouldnt, so many people love them.

I can only second the above comment. I wanted to say, just look at all your icons that I'm using now and have used in the past, but this is obviously anonymous. *headdesk*

Anyway, trust me, it's a lot and your graphic talents never seizes to amaze me. So please don't stop doing it, because I guarantee me and many others will be gacking from you for a long time to come. :)

I think you need to be more confident, because really, you create beautiful stuff.

I thought anonymous was one? Ah, never mind, I hate anonymous replies anyway. :)

I have so much respect for your icon making ability that it simply blows me away that you could ever think you're anything less than brilliant. Everytime I see a new one I start to wonder all over again how anyone could be so gifted and I'm in total awe.

i've been a fan of your icons for a LONG time now! and they just keep getting better and better! honestly. but i do wish you'd be more self-confident as well, bc you truly are talented!

the only thing i dont like about your icons is that they seem washed out sometimes. i like the ones that dont have a texture over them (i.e. the one your using now). bold icons have always appealed to me. but other than that, i have much ♥ for your work!

some excellent cropping and colours, but you have a tendency to being too fussy and too gimmicky: insets, and nearly criminal over-use of gradients/stamps/textures and tiny text on icons that could have been a lot better with less going on.

I'll never understand why you always criticise your icons. They are magnificent and the first time I came across them I was completely floored by your style. Loved your icons then and I still do and always will. Stop being so insecure about them. <3

Sometimes you use way too many gradients and brushes on an icon. And your choice of text does not always go with the icon itself. I love your simple, non gradient icons the best.

I also think you could be more confident when it comes to your icons.

Sometimes I like the idea behind the icon, and the brushes and textures are nice, but then you put cheesy text on them, and it takes away from the artistry of the icons themselves.

I really enjoy your icons! You have a very unique style. I don't know how you could be unsure about your artistic skills.
