Hi dear Deviants!I'm pleased to announce the upcoming release of my next icon set, "O Sunny Day"!
After the unexpected success of my first icon set, "Lemonade At Work
", and many downloads and comments of encouragement, I decided to create a new icon set using traditional technics, i.e. handmade, using pencil, colorpencils, some inspiration and, of course, lots of imagination!
So, what about on this new icon set?
After reading the comments and suggestions about my first set of icons, I've tried to improve my techniques and not repeating the errors made for "Lemonade At Work".
For now, my goals for "O Sunny Day" are the followings: 1.)
Adding much more colors, much more vivid and much more contrast!
"Lemonade At Work" was too much pale, were sorely lacking in contrast and not colorful, which made it usable only with very bright wallpapers.
Also, the icons weren't very detailed, especially at high resolution under Windows Vista/Server 2008/7 (up to 256x256 pixels) and Mac OS X Tiger/Leopard/Snow Leopard (up to 512x512 pixels)... 2.)
Trying to emphasize quality over quantity.
Some icons are useless for most users, such the CPU-Z or 3D Mark 06 icons...
Only the most populars applications (such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, iTunes, Word or Photoshop) and the folders icons (standard folder, music, movies, downloads, pictures, contacts and some others icons...) will be present in this icon set. 3.)
Stay in a theme that inspires good humor, happiness and memories.
As you can see, I love vivid colors, fantasy, artworks inspiring happiness.
Our world is so serious ... Be happy and smiling!
Dream of a colored, peaceful and pleasant world... ^^
I want to thank all the people who commented, downloaded, viewed and/or added on their faves my first icon set!
Without you, this would have never existed! Many thanks!~☺♥
If my calculations are correct, I think I will release "Oh Sunny Day" before late November 2009, except in case of problems, of course...
If you want to see the raw version of these icons, directly scanned on A4 sheets (210x297 mm), handmade, do not hesitate to take a look at my scrapbook...
Thanks a lot for all your comments and your support!
This encourages me to continue creating new art for you!
I'm so happy to see that! Many thanks!
