well... i didn't get my entries into u quick enough West.... but i'll just review the icons and choose my favorite.
#1:.. i like the grayscale effect as well as the dark-light texturing. #2: the crops good, but this image is pretty overused in the fandom. #3: it doesn't really seem to fit the theme very well.. and if u haven't seen that episode, u probably won't know what weapon it was. #4: very nice making the rest of the avatar black and white.. makes the weapon stand out more. #5: i like the whole crop, but it just doesn't seem to be very eyecatching. #6: i like this one & it's crop, but it seems to be a little over darkened. #7: wow... just wow.. i like the crop and coloring of this! very lovely! #8: the cropping is good on this one, but the texture used kind of takes away from it. #9: the crop is excellent, but i think there should have been something more to this (like a texture or text) #10: very vibrant coloring in this one, and a good crop too! #11: this one looks a little too overdone with textures and manips and doesn't really pop out to me.
it's between 1, 4, 7, and 10... but i'd have to say 4 because its simple but unique all at once.

This week's icons seems to be a little on the dark side, just all of them seem really dark and gloom filled. (Though the subject of weapons aren't so happy, I'm surprised no one did a funny one with Sokka playing with weapons and making a fool out of himself.)
Though #2 jumped out the most for me. It was a bit of an ordinary crop for me, but the crop of #1. I don't know it was just something sick and sinister about the entire crop. It's so Azula, and I like it a lot. Though most of the icons were really...dark, I liked it the best.

#2 -- nice crop and color (especially the shine), and it really caught my eye. The tiny text seems rather unnecessary though

I voted 1. I love the crop so much. And the color of it fits really well.
I liked 3, 6, and 7 too. 3 is a very interesting shot and it's just so different from the others. And I love bubbles like that fish in the tank in Finding Nemo. :3 I liked 6 for the reasons that goten said. It just looks cool overall. And 7 is so bright and fresh and stands out from the others.

I chose number seven. Out of those four, it stood out most to me (with number two as a close second) because of the bright colors. It's a good crop overall, if not a little busy. I also liked how the weapon was more of the main focus. With the others, the weapons felt more like accessories onto the main focus, Sokka or Mai.

I've already voted! Didn't realize I didn't post my vote...but anyway, I had to go with #1. The crop and coloring made it look so, as Ghiaccio nicely put it, sick and sinister. Seeing as it was Azula holding it just added to the eeriness it gives off.
