Okay everyone, here are all the sets, and be aware of the voting question this week: Being a good set means that the icons look good next to each other, but that they can also look good without the other next to it.

I like 9, 10, 11, 13, and 14.
Ooh, this one is really tough. I'm going to have to go with eleven. The coloring is simple but effective, and they work well together but would also both function separately. Some of the others look great together (1, 9, 13, 14), but would look kind of strange as two separate icons.

AH. I was on vacation that week; I wish I had been able to participate in this one, it looked fun.

#1 - the coloring is plain, but i like the unique angle on the second one. #2 - the grunge texture doesn't really fit, and the first icon doesn't look very good by itself. #3 - the text doesn't fit very well #4 - I LOVE the how Aang's colorful self contrasts with the grey background. Both of the icon crops are really nice too. #5 - I really like how one is just scenery and the other has Appa as the focus instead of one thing broken into two. I'm usually a fan of that sort of coloring, but i think it fits the peaceful feel of the images. #6 - I love the vivid colors. They're great, but a tad bit plain. (just a tad ) #7 - the coloring is also really vivid in this one, but katara looks a bit too orange, IMO. Also, Aang's glider in the first icon is actually kind of distracting #8 - Cool crop, but odd effects... #9 - Once again, cool crop, but odd effects. #10 - I love the blues and purples in this set and how there's two different focuses once again. #11- The coloring is pretty, but the heart brush feels a bit out of place. The text doesn't make sense outside of the set though #12 - This set looks good together, but awkward apart. the light texture was ok in the Toph one, but in Aang's, it looks like he has chicken pox. lol #13 - The second isn't as nice as the first, and they're a bit plain. #14 - The coloring is plain, and the first icon looks great IMO, but Yue's big hair in the second one sort of takes away the focus from sokka. #15 - This one is AMAZING. The coloring really fits the feeling of desolation and both of the crops are really unique. I feel like some tiny text could have been used to jazz them up a bit, but they look great text-less too. #16 - Eh, I'm not feeling the green coloring. The Azula crop feels TOO centered. #17 - The crops are cool, and i love the bright colors, but they're a bit plain. #18 - I love how this one is vertical instead of horizontal, but i think the text throws it off.
The bolded numbers are the best IMO, but it comes down to 4 and and 15 for me. I'm voting for 15 because the two icons look the best together and apart. In #4, the first icon had a lot of empty space. Either way, this one was a toughy; there were so many to choose from.
Because she's asian and thus uses her squinty eyes to bend the laws of time and space.
This is really a tough descission. I really like the theme, its something different and all the creators stepped up to make some amazing icons. I ended up voting for #6, something about it just caught my eye when I browsed the list.
