me being odd...ignore this post, plz

Okay, I'm absolutely loving the Then and Now Icon Meme. Some posts, for instance phuck's over here, are a beacon of hope for every icon maker, since it proves that no matter how scary your icons may seem, in future they *can* improve. You just need to keep at it.

Looking at all the posts, it's easy to see that while initially most peeps seem to be all over the place in technique, they've managed to develop their own styles. Additionally, execution of these ideas has definitely improved - text, textures and beyond everything else, color. The quality of the icons now compared to the beginning is shocking especially when some peeps have been doing it only for a year.

Having said that - my post is here. Seriously? My icons have never really been all that creative - initially I never even bothered with text and textures cause I knew I'd screw it up. So everything looks so freaking simple and pathetic - especially when you see lunacat's fabulous development here or zo_cat's general awesomeness.

No wonder I'm trying to do layouts now instead >__< But, crap - ok, I'm not so pessimistic normally - ok, actually I'm just an optimistic pessimist so I'll try to be cheery even if deep down I believe I'm going to hell in a hand basket. So.

Yes, GLACIA YOU WILL IMPROVE, JUST DO WHAT YOU LIKE AND KEEP AT IT GIRL. And then you'll still suck things will be fine.
