Ok, two days to go and no one wants to be first. So here goes....,

I call these my Glow-In-The-Dark-Icons:

I'm using symbols from the webdings and wingdings font for the base and applying simple effects from there. [edit] I have just released the plugin I used to create the symbols, you can find it here: WhichSymbol [/edit]. The lower images show the icons at their planned 64x64 pixel size (the black box is 64x64 to give an idea of scale).

I often need to wring a few quick icons out in quick time and this is my usual method. If you can't figure out which icon is which, I've not done my job very well have I ? :(

Surely you guys n gals have something better to show off by now?

^^Click for a slideshow of larger (300x300 px) individual icons.

The Applications I created icons for were (in order):

My Computer

Internet Explorer

Gmail

iWork - Keynote

iWork - Numbers

iWork - Pages

Microsoft Paint (such a lousy program does not deserve such a sexy icon. :|)

Windows Media Player

USB Drive

Plugins

Go ahead, stare in awe, I won't mind. :wink:

[offtopic] This is also my 200th post. Lolz.[/offtopic]

Well, I was going to hold off until the deadline, but since Crimson has already posted ... heck, why not?

The original plan was to make extra icons, but:

1) I didn't know where to start.

2) I got lazy. Again. 8)

So, all I've got is the 8 required icons. I don't care if it costs me points. Crimson, your icons are looking good, I see you pulled them together with a color combination of dark gray and green. I, on the other hand, have produced icons with a light gray and blue-cyan color scheme. :)

This is gonna be a rough competition. And we still await Jake's entry.

Anyways ...

Click for a link to the .PDN file containing all 8 icons, each on its own, separate, conveniently named layer.

No, the "glassy" parts are not actually translucent, they will stay the exact same shade of blue on any background color.

No, I don't have a fancy slideshow or anything.

One stock.

Enjoy!
