    What do you think? This theme is in the very early stages, so changes can/will be made

    Looks nice, and the purple just looks luscious!

    the purple part of the base is reeaall nice; not a fan of the orange border at all and the glyph has some half pixels and needs some more work with the layer style (also the top part of the arrow is too thick)

    your base also seems like it has half pixels; make sure you check 'snap to pixels' on the rounded rectangle tool options

    see here, how all the edges are slightly grey (thus, half black)? this makes them blurry when looked at at normal size

    but then when you check snap to pixels it snaps the edges of the shape onto one pixel, thus crisp edges and corners

    snap to pixels is found under the little arrow on the rounded rectangle options bar:

    when making glyphs, you can use the grid (set to 1px gridlines in edit->preferences) and check 'snap to grid' in the view menu

    well pixels arent the end of the story..they're made up by the Red Blue Green components..so if your pixel isn't complete..you don't get your intended color..i'm guessing thats what Mr. Crypt meant..

    for sure; the purple bit is top notch stuff. not sure why the orange border is there though

    but anyways keep at it and you'll keep improving. keep trying new things, develop your own techniques and a unique style etc

    hm really? 'cos you've got a very light row of orange on the bottom and right sides (and to a lesser extent the left and top)

    may not seem like a big deal (and it isn't) but idk it's all the little details that matter

    Oh i think its cause i drew the border on and it wasnt part of the rectangle. I put it so that it would make it a bit different, should i change the color because it looks quite plain without the border

    Would it work better if i changed the border color to match with the icon?
