First post of 2021 with icons from January and February. I tried and failed miserably at switching over to PhotoShop, but I did update the version of GIMP I use from 2.8.6 to 2.10.22 at the start of February, so I've had to adjust to things being slightly different to what I am expecting! Don't think I'll be trying PS again for a while, I'm just too set in my ways and it was way too different!

The results of bestof_icons 2020 came back, and my best icon of 2020 was...
The rest of my top 13 were:
So it turns out green was a popular choice in my icons last year, which I guess makes sense as it's probably my favourite colour and I really enjoy making icons using it, which probably shows! I'm also really pleased to see some of my attempts at more complex compositions show up here as I've been trying to really focus on that lately. My 'best' icon wasn't necessarily my favourite, but it does have some different colouring and textures in it that I was trying out, so it's nice to see that experimentation pays off!

It's been a pretty busy few months for me so I didn't make any icons in August or September, and I just realised I never posted these from end of May – July here, so here's a mini icon dump.
