I'm ugly!  
oh no! Check it out guys, my icons have been put up at ugly_icons. Honestly, I'm a little more insulted that 50% keep on thinking I'm a girl. I'm really surprised at how many of the comments were actually compliments. Also that some knew of me! Wow! I didn't know anyone knew of me. How come on nobody comments on my posts, then :(

So overall, I think being nominated there was... a good thing? It's not often you hear people talk openly about your icons, positively or negatively. Usually there's just a "thanks", if anything at all.

What I liked best was that there were people who'd say something like "I usually like [his] icons, but these are way over the top". That shows to me, that they usually understand what I was going for with my icons, but in this case I was doing the wrong thing. You know, like... it wasn't them having bad taste, but rather me having bad taste. And now I know not to do that again. Huzzah!

I'm pretty happy with it, it's much better than the dodgey Zach Braff wall I made him for Christmas. I only wish that her right cheek matched tone-wise with her left cheek a little more and I'd done something interesting with textures or something...

I've had my icons ranted about in the past over at iconrants, it just happens sometimes :/

oh yeah? I'm actually really glad you replied to this post, because I thought that the style of those icons was actually fairly similar to yours, what with the crazy contrast and saturation and all.

I really love that about your art. It's incredibly over the top, but it's daring. You dare to overexpose, you dare to oversaturate and it ends up being absolutely incredible :)

Um, I'm not entirely sure where I was going with all this, but... yeah, it's good to know I'm not the only one :D
