Hey everyone. I have been taking in a lot of advice from the expert thememakers here at IPTF. Thank you so much! So this is my official icon thread. I will post all icons that I make and occasionally delete ones that are bad or don't fit in. First off I need some ideas. I have decided to go with a silver metallic type of gradient. Probably vertical, but I need some ideas for tone, lighting, gloss, etc. Once I have some ideas flowing, I will begin making some icons. From there I would like you to critique them so I can make them better and change things up. I am not an expert at this stuff, so accept my mistakes and point them out, but don't try to make me sound like an idiot. Thanks everyone for the input! I added a few attachements of what I think will look good for the backgrounds. Tell me what you think. I think either the beveled or normal one. The gloss makes it more plastic like instead of the metallic I'm going for. Hey guys, just whipped up a Safari Icon on the beveled background. It's not spectacular, and as I figured, Safari would be tough to make anything good. I am open to suggestions and critique. I'll attach this one as well. Background options 1, 2, and 3. Safari Icon.
