Hi!

I think these icons r good start. To be more constructive: i like the style/idea of k3b, konsole, xmms, mplayer. I think w/ the same approaceh u should rethink evolution, mozilla, and exec icons. Somehow it seems to me u couldn't decide if u wanna do 2D or 3D icons. Eg mplayer and k3b are 3D while gimp is 2D. personally as i wrote i like your 3D icons better, they seems more 'cool' :) And if u have no idea where to continue maybe u should check an exiting complete iconset and try to make the icons according to that.

Keep up work, u have the chance to make a unique, cool iconset imho.

bye, hirisov

i appreciate the comment, and understand where you are coming from.. but i never intended for these icons to look real, just to be visually exciting to brighten up peoples desktops. about the toaster not be shaded well, and not looking real, how many toasters have you seen with flames down the side and a cd sticking out.

I see alot of potential in your icon designs, but you need to do some work on your shading. The area I see this most is on the sides of your toaster. Having the sides go from one extreme (pure white) to another (blue) makes it look very silly, especially when all three visable sides use the exact same range of the exact same gradient

Here's a little tip . . .

If you have a real toaster, try setting it in a plainly visable area, where the lighting of the room is shining on it from the point where a user would be viewing the icon. Study the toaster very carefully, taking not of the different shades you would use in each area to mimic it. If you have decent lighting you should notice that the differences in color are much more subtle than those seen in your current icon. You'll also notice that some sides are darker than the others.

You can make the coloring a little more dramatic if you feel it's needed to keep the style you're seeking, but it always helps to at least have it consistant with a real object. After all, part of the goal in making icons is to make them look believable and have them resemble their respective real life counterparts.

Anyway, nice job so far. Keep up the good work, and I hope this helps! :D

I'm almost afraid to ask, but, why so many core dumps?

Nice icons (seriously, I mean that), don't get me wrong, but the core dumps made me scared...
