    I had a little freetime today, so I decided to throw together some avacons. I'm not sure if anyone's ever used the term 'avacon' before but in case you were wondering I'm thinking that it means avatar + icon. I made a few different variations, because I couldn't decide which I liked best, so constructive criticism is a much; I thrive for it!

    Anyways, if feedback is positive I'll think about posting a tutorial or my .psd file.

    Here they are:

    (by the way, one of the main things I was going for was beveling the entire icon so it kind of volcanoes to the text, it didn't work out as well as I thought on this batch)

    Those are pretty cool, why so big though?
    Anyways, I like the red one the best. I would love a .psd, for learning purposes, since I suck at graphics. D:

    Thanks! I'm not sure how much good my psd file will be though, I don't keep tidy layers.

    Either way, you can get it here. Ideally, I would like to finalize the design a bit and make things as good as they can be.

    Nice, thanks for the psd. Do you plan on making an avatar or a theme or something with it?

    I'll make avatars for anyone over on somuchtouch.com/forums who wants one, and i'll teach anyone who would like to learn. I actually am working on a few themes at the moment, but I won't release the package until everything is settled in 2.0. Gotta wait for spicychicken and all.

    Oh and Totally 1337, you spelled it wrong. It should read Avacon©2008 JD

    ^nu that'd be even worse, 'cos then we'd have an outbreak of sucky generic glossy avacons D:

    the best thing would be for you to use it as your avatar and have everyone envy your skillz, and then chucky would come along and copy it and say he made it first
