Now since I have to make up for not being as good as anyone else doing the challenge heres some stories for about each icon, because hey then it might make sense where I was coming from.

The Escape Plan set, we'll start with that, that was a fun one and the first icons I did. I had that picked up from the beginning. I'm happy with the set for the most part and I loved that I was able to fit in the quote from the show itself in there, I'm sure it would be even more awesome if I was better with the text, but hey it still looks all right.

The Revenge one I just love, it turned out so well I think. Maybe a bit to red, but just the look and everything for it, I like that one.

The Greed one was one that surprised me quite a bit, I didn't expect it to turn out like this and I think it looks quite good, somehow got the text to work with me on that one.

Oh and the first artist choice one. I wasn't going to go with this icon at all first, I didn't think it was going to work out at all, then it became awesome. I think its about one of my favorites in the set.

Artist choice three is kind of the opposite story. I had the idea for it right away and thought it was going to be super awesome, but then it was kind of meh, I still like it, but I just wish it could be better. Still shoryuken joke is win.

John Bridger was a bit meh for me too, I was going to use artist choice five instead at first, then I kind of just came up with this. I don't know its growing on me.

Then overall one thing you might notice is most of these if not all are very simple. I'm not the best at making icons or anything and I looked at tutorials and everything, but I just don't like a lot of the icons that are super complicated. Its been quite sometime since I've really done icons, 2006 I want to say.

So that is about that, maybe that helps to see the icons better or something. I'm overall quite happy with the set, so that is something. So I guess overall be gentle :P.

I must admit that I can't stop staring at your Safe Cracker icon. There's something about it that I like...yes, the rest are pretty cool but that one has me hypnotized.

I apologize for the delay in getting back to this. I wanted to ensure I had the time to comment thoroughly. I really do like your Escape Plan set a lot, the transition is nice and tells the story well.

You know how I feel about simple icons and preferring them, so I won't go into that whole rant. I do enjoy your themed icons, the greed one is one of my favorites as is the explosion one. You have a way of making the colors vibrant and stick out so I think you should stick to icons like that.

Artist's Choice #4 seems to not fit in but I must be missing that. xD It's nice and I do like it, catches my attention every time, I just don't get what it's from~
