    INSTINCTIVE

    This is my first icon pack that I have shown publicly. I know I am not the best with photoshop but then again I am still young and have only been using it for about 6 months. Here is the preview anyway:

    I like the base icons but the only complete one that I like is probably the videos (possibly YouTube?) icon.


    Please give both good and bad criticism as I need to know what isn't good so that I can Improve it in the future. Thanks

    EDIT: Complete design overhaul with bevels and lighting flares. Yes it is a simple icon pack but I am only starting and trying to see what I can come up with as a test design.

    to simple, need something more. Maybe icon borders, glyph borders, gloss, better gradient. just some idea, it's a good start though, has potential.
    Also, think about refining the glyphs.

    Alot of them seem off centered. Also, have you only been using this because you made it? Personally I don't think it's very good.

    looks like you just used the gradient tool, a little off center as well

    gradient is too harsh. glyhps are bad and are not what you should be using anyways. glyph themes like this are lame IMO. use your imagination. take your time. do icon metaphors. make an icon you'd be proud to show here. this looks like you hurried to make a theme so you could make a thread about it.

    I'm going to have to agree with Radish. It's basically just a gradient in an icon shape.

    This is only as a starter for the base icon. I will add different things to it such as a bevel or an emboss and improve the icons so that they look more appealing to the user.
