this is a combination of several different icon concrit memes from LJ, but is most heavily based on [livejournal.com profile] thrift's!

you're one of my favourite hs icon makers!! and i particularly like your use of warm tones (especially orange/coral ish?) in your colourings, it's very distinctive and gives your icons a really nice uh flair i guess?? i can look at your icons and usually guess that they were made by you~ which imo is a good thing

in terms of criticism, sometimes your lines become a bit washed out by the gradient fills? especially with icons that are overall quite pale, or as a whole lean towards a warm tint. (for ex, these adventure time icons.) i haven't noticed it much in your more recent posts, though, so i'd guess you've more or less realized this yourself!

anyway i think your icons are very unique and charming and i encourage u 2 keep on keepin on~

I love your icons! I use many of them, they're very nice and I am the latest to this crit meme.

The only thing I can think of in terms of crit is that occasionally your icons have such a reddish tone that they are actually hard on the eyes. Mostly it's a case of Rose + Dave-colors (those bright oranges and reds) combined with the red you use for textures. The art itself is already a decent saturation so I think sometimes the excess is unnecessary? Because with others it looks just fine -- like the Korra icons you have pictured, and the trickster!genderswap John.
