The icons listed here are in alphabetical order by maker. They are the top 50 icons that I personally have found in the year 2012. They may have been created earlier than that.
I was a big sucker for coloring this year, as you can see from the brightness below. I also chose based off of composition and intrigue. These were icons that caught my eye and made me want to use them all as userpics at some point or another. Lovely work to everyone on this list ♥
