The votes don't seem to correspond to the order placement.

I didn't vote (yet, unless the poll is closed) because I found the icons hard to compare without further info. I'm especially interested in learning whether the intellectual devourer was done from scratch or if it's based on previously existing art. It looks kind of familiar, but maybe I've already seen it in one of Nol's designs?

The icon is based on this image from the 2nd edition Montrous Manual:

I believe that the artist was Dave Simons, though I'm not certain.
