Description:

Still Life is an icon set which aims to provide realistic, easy, and non-distractive icons. it is mostly adhering to the GNOME Human Interface Guidelines and is still quite young and incomplete.

Thanks to gnomonkey for suggesting the new (and more original) name.

Gnome-standard, but at the same time it looks realistic. The devices icons look just awesome!

Good work! Looking forward for a more complete set, regarding apps icons and, maybe, some variations on the folder icons (other colors).

Also, where can I get the SVG files?

This is absolutely one of my favourite icon themes. I hope you keep working on it to make it complete and maybe substitute some of the icons with better ones.

Very good icons. Five stars!

This is one of the most beautiful icon themes I've ever seen. Please, continue working on it ;-) It's cool! Thanks.

Beautiful theme, very simple, clean, fresh appearance.

It's application iconset is fairly complete, and the default GNOME icons look "good enough" alongside the Still Life ones that any gaps aren't a big deal.

You may want to fill in the holes presented by the new OpenDocument/Oasis formats with just symlinks to the old OpenOffice format type icons, as I have. Adding in icons for audio file and video file formats would be nice as well, even if they are generic to start with.

This icon set has a GREAT POTENTIAL, this will be the default icon set for GNOME 2.16 if you don't give it up!!

I really like this theme and I hope you continue to work on it. Btw it seems you are missing a filled trash icon or it is misplaced.

Very nice, can't wait for the final release. As far as a new name, how about something like "Still Life" since some of the icons are pretty photorealistic. Just a suggestion, but it was the first idea that jumped out at me.

Cheers.

your theme is nice (I prefer MAC OS X like icons but it's real good job).

you wrote I made them in GIMP: Why didn't you use Inkscape (or another vectorial program)? Why not svg format?

keep on the good work.

Mac OS X is pixel-based too.

The reason I use GIMP is that the realistic look of these icons is really hard to achieve in vector-based formats. Inkscape has improved a lot in adjusting to a pixel grid in various sizes (I heard jimmac has switched to Inkscape), but vector graphics are naturally more suitable for sketchy, scheme-like icons.
Doing this set in SVG would mean a lot more work for me, and the resulting files would be very complex, thus rendering times would suffer.
For now, I'll stick with PNG.

These icons are great. I haven't seen any icon sets I want to keep for more than a few days - until now. Looking forward to the rest... Thanx.

Not a huge fan of stealing peoples work and using it without permission. I know some of those icons are from Jimmac which are GPL but some of them are from other artists who have copyrights on them...

May I interprete that as a very alternative way of saying you think they're good?
And just FYI:
I hope there are no icons by jimmac in this tarball (as it would increase the size unnecessarily because the .theme file inherits them anyway) - I keep them in my own folder to remind me of all the icons I still have to create, but they shouldn't be in the download file.
Assuming I didn't forget any of jimmac's icons in there, ALL icons are made entirely by me. I created them. I didn't nick them, I didn't modify someone else's theme, I didn't convert them from Mac OS X, I made them in GIMP.

So please, if you're unable to notice the differences between these icon sets, just refrain from making comments stating that my works aren't mine.

No, you cant interpret my post above as: "I like them."

I am going to have to go ahead and say I dont believe you created the hardrive icon from scratch.

Yes some of your icons are almost perfect copies of ones done by Jimmac but the hardrive icons dont even match the rest of the icons. They are detailed beyond the others and again, I dont believe you when you say you did them from scratch...

There is a great difference between that. While you may not like my icons, you seem to think that they are so good that you can't believe I created them myself. Anyway, I did. You're not going to find artwork by anyone else in this set.

The hard disk icon may indeed seem a little out of place, because it is one of the oldest in this set, I made it more than two years ago.
Some of the newer icons have distinct outlines (especially those with light grey edges, to increase visibility in menus), which is a similarity to jimmac's icons, but they're *not* "almost perfect copies of ones done by Jimmac".

So, bring'em on! Show me any icon in this set that is not copyrighted by me, and I'll immediately delete the whole set. If you fail to do that or apologize, you are just a troll.

Apart from that, I'm going to have different icons for closed, opened and active folders ready in a few days.

Without insulting anyone, I believe that when making such statements it is necessary to either give some proof or don't make them at all.

On a side not I don't praticularly like the theme. It seems to miss consistency both in style and in color theme.

Could do without the pot leaf, unless thats the symbol for the Windows partition.

Thanks!
The weed leaf is the icon for Dopewars, which i consider a killer application for the easy-to-use Linux desktop.
The windows partition would rather be decorated with a dogpie, which could be considered offensive by some people (considering that some can't even recognize the difference between Ubuntu's Human color scheme and excrement)...
