I've done the icon truth meme 3 times before, and they seemed like fun, so I'll do it again.
If you want to see the first three, they are here:
- part one
- part two
- part three

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.
Of course you don't have to comment anonymously, but I would strongly suggest it.

Anon is on and IP tracking is off. So, TELL EVERYONE TO PARTICIPATE!

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.

(If no one comments to this or anything, I will be so sad)

Love, Love, Love your icons! The only crit I have is the the picture resolution can be a little grainy at times. And just to have fun with 'em!!! :D

Your icons are creative, bright, your use of colouring is really good, as much as your choice of pictures!

I just adore your icons! There isn't any other maker who I've saved quite so many icons from!
Your work is always vibrant and beautiful, and the images are clear creatively designed upon. Keep up the excellent work! ♥

You have a definite, deliberate style with your icons, and I think your coloring of the manga shows great care and it is fantastic. I also adore the simplistic style of your text (this (http://i27.tinypic.com/2cnh7ir.png) icon in particular, I really liked the placement and look of the text within the icon).

There's also plenty of room to grow! I think that your colors often get washed out and lose a sort of vibrancy that would make them pop. A problem of yours in particular is that your icons are overbright without colors that balance that with high saturation (this (http://i37.photobucket.com/albums/e85/abstain_love/other/002-3.png) icon loses focus and interest because everything is so bright - the colors aren't popping and the subject is almost all white/white tones, so it all blends together but the dark background). There are some times when this technique is pretty (a href="http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/9338/0701jo8.png">here</a> is an example) but for the most part, you need to work on making icons vibrant without necessarily upping the lightness.

Another thing that would be great for you to do is to take more risks with your cropping. I don't see anything that's terribly daring or risky in the cropping - it follows the rule of thirds almost exactly, which is great for beginning. But I think it would be very interesting if you started changing it up with different, even strange crops.

Overall, your icons are pretty and fairly unique, but there is always room for improvement!

I think you've come a long way with your icon making, just looking at the last few months or so, but you're kind of a slave to trends. That's not always a bad thing, but it gets boring seeing the same kind of icons from everyone.
