Middle of last week I saw a contest on sinful_graphics with the theme 'Submission' that I thought I might enter. I don't normally enter icon design contests, if only for the reason that I'm not overly confident in my design skills at the present, despite mrshannibal's assertion that I'm some sort of icon making deity (though I appreciate the praise naturally).
Still and all, I have more than a few bdsm'y bases from the terabytes of porn that I've been assembling over the years, and thought that I could whip up a couple icons to post to the contest and see how they flew.
Long story short, the ones I posted were pretty well received, one managed to garner enough votes that it came in 4th place and the other one was selected for a 'Banner Maker's Choice', so I managed to win something my first time out...not too shabby if I do say so myself.
Just goes to show I don't have to be so down on myself, I can actually create some very neat things when I put my mind to it. Yay me.
