foxestacado - One of the best X-Phile iconers out there. I most admire her skill in bringing out the light from the darkness of The X-Files. She has unique skill with tiny text and textures, and her batches are almost never the same. She also has an amazing eye for cropping and has a very cool way of iconing multiple angles of a picture that bring out a varying theme or viewpoint. There are some cool behind the scenes bonuses for joining Fox Estacado's journal such as photography and insight into Fox's extra-icon-ular creativity. I strongly recommend a drop-by.

ack_attack @ iconseeyou. Sharp, creative icons with some of the best texties on LJ. I go here for the Lost crack.

mysticxf - Think these are funny? Check out the journal. Yeah be-beh, there's MORE.

cursed_iconses from the strange genius of angeliquesg. She never fails to wow with her unique ability to make an icon literally pop out at you. She colors and crops fearlessly, so when someone asks you "ZOMG who did your icon", you'll probably say, "cursed_iconses." *nods*

icon_reich - Maintained by emily_reich: The Texture Queen. She wields fearless coloring capabilities, amazing crop angles and some of the best text use I've ever seen. Also, her B/W is to go greyscale for, srsly. Whatever fandom she's doing, you're gonna want an icon, dudez.

tihana - Just some really creative, sharp looking icons. I love her texture and brush use, it makes each icon look almost hand-drawn or painted.

scary_tan @ sheep_tank She is a fearless experimenter with a strong style distinguished by her use of color, cropping and quite often text. She has a unique way of using the blend technique that always wows me. I love her subtle use of textures, sometimes you can't even tell she's used one because it's fused in so perfectly with the image.

elvenblessed. Elvenblessed deleted her account a year or so, but I'm keeping this here because she really did do some fabulous iconing work that deserves to be remembered.

xxjaybabyxx...who also no longer exists on LJ. She had wonderful use of color and cropping. She had a unique style of blending text with a perfectly colorized (or B/W) image. Some of the best X-Files icons anywhere. You can still find her work on teh_grimmerie

iconofilth, maintained by meivocis. Frakking artistic and incredibly imaginative collage artist.

newkidfan @ blimey_icons. Some of the most amazing coloring, cropping and (OMG *squeals fangirlishly*) the photo-manipulation. Every icon is like a work of art. And some pretty damn cool Calvin & Hobbes icons as well. She's also got a cool Graphics Website.

atomicapples I love this icon journal. All the artists are chic, hip and have the knack of making the icon that you're sure would have failed miserably had they not been the one to make it. Posters there are wherescookie and prettybutt

wicked_signs. Another of my fav icon poster communities that posts some exquisite icons. Posters are imaginary_lives and marylou_gr

yoostyna. I recently discovered the work of this artist, it is amazing when one can do with the smudge tool and this artists work is a testament to it. This is one of my favorite journals to get my LOST fix. HIGHLY recommend.

Wow. I can't tell you how honored I am that I am on your favorite's list! *jawdrop* *headdesk* *faint* *some other i-can't-believe-it emotional reaction* Seriously, thank you so much! It means a lot to be "known" for something, let alone be among many honorable icon makers on a favorite's list. People like you are one of the reasons I keep making icons; it's nice to know I'm appreciated once in a while, and that just gives for more inspiration to a new batch. =D
