ICON TRUTH MEME 4


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)

Your iconposts are really interesting, because you make the best icons I have ever seen in my life. That being said, the 50% I don't love, I don't really like at all.
So either I'll love the icon so much I want to die because I know I'll never be able to make anything that good or... I won't really like it at all. The way you make icons seems to be very hit-or-miss.

When it's a hit I LOVE your use of textures, text, colours, cropping, everything! The 'hit' icons are just so amazing. As I said, they can leave me feeling like I want to die because I'll never be able to make anything as good. Not literally, but... yeah. :D

And then when it's a miss I don't really like anything about the icon. The text doesn't make sense, the colouring is bad, the cropping is confusing and the textures don't help. The good thing is I only focus on the good ones so as far as I'm concerned you're the best iconmaker on this planet.

Hmm... what else is there to say?
Your texture use is incredible. There's a texture you use that looks like a fingerprint. I love it :D
And overall your icons rock my socks so much! I wish you'd make another post :D

Yeah ikwym. But sometimes the icons I think are "blah" end up being hte icons that people tell me they like the best. So I'm never sure which to include and which to toss out.

Thank you for the feedback though! I have some icosn I'm meaning to post pretty soon!
