Well, Xicons has become a complete wasteland. I shouldn't put down other peoples creativity... but as of late, pretty much all that can be said in a 128X128 space has been said. I haven't seen any new icons in a while that really knocked my socks off. It's almost too bad that X uses photorealistic icons, 'cos any schmuck with Photoshop, an icon making app, and two fingers to copy and paste thinks they can do it. And if I see one more icon using my glassy button style I'm gonna flip out. Hell, even Netscape uses it.<br><br>Iconfactory's World of Aqua and Smoothicons are probably the best I've ever seen. Their CandyBar stuff rocks. RAD-E8 has some neat stuff, but like Hein, the guy suffers from going overboard with that bright white highlight (it rhymes!) on everything.<br><br>
I am using icons from RAD-E8 right now. I like the Snow.E icons to go with my brushed metal theme. However I do agree that too many artists are using the "bubble/white highlights" idea right now...<br><br>I know you do icons, but I'm sorry to say that I can't remember your web site (I used to have it bookmarked I thought). What is it?<br><br><br>Click here to visit me.
