    Icons are already V3 and are almost final.
    But I still need a few things re-done for them then I'll move on to the GUI elements of the theme.

    Now, could you guys give me your opinion on what icon base looks better?
    This one (W/O the starry stuff set to overlay):

    Or, this one (W/ The starry stuff set to overlay):

    (Keep in mind, I used the icon base W/ the starry stuff set to overlay in the icons on the themes preview image)

    And also! ANY helpful feedback and critique is appreciated!

    EDIT:
    Oh and!
    What would look better?
    Small, minimalistic glyphs?
    Or ones that fill the icons? (Like in the preview pic)

    Yeah I was thinking the same way with the base, but, when I add my glyphs ... the BG of the icons stand out a bit and can mess with the shape of the glyphs.

    Not to be an ass lol, but I'll wait for some more opinions on this aspect ... so I could get a solid idea of what looks good.
    Thanks for your feedback Though!

    Wow this theme looks clean. I like without the star overlay I also think you should do full size icons and not mini ones thanks!!!

    Can we see a screen shot of the icons on the iPod? The preview makes them blurry.

    What's making the icons blurry is the glyphs.
    It was my mistake for resizing the glyphs after I applied the affects, thus making them seem blurry.
    I'm going to re make the glyphs so they won't be as blurry, and will keep the glyphs medium sized.

    POLL:
    I have made a few sets of V3 original icon bases all different
    The first choice being the V3 icon bases and the last being like V6.
    Please pick your favorite and the one that you think will look best of the four icons below.

    V3 (Original, The ones I used in the previews)=

    V4 (Like V3 but brighter, softer, more friendly. This base is what I made V5 & V6 from)=

    V5 (I like this one the best so far, due to the little lip at the bottom of the icon)=

    V6 (No Drop Shadow, just clean and sharp)=
