    Icon Creation Station:
    I'm taking requests for icons, tell me a design you want, etc. and I'll try and make it for you. Some samples below of different designs: Use Bettercut from the market. If you don't know how to use it search the forums. Below are some sample templates I can use for you, but I can pretty much create anything, just give me detailed info on what you want (icons to look like).

    Here is the first set. I'll be adding more when I have time, but if you want to request something for me to add or want a new design, please let me know.

    ICON PACKAGES:
    3/24/10 - Striped Icons v1.0 (47 icons): D/L here

    Damn b... those are some nice icons. Im a photoshop guy and I think thats some nice handy work! I woudl love to change my icons but I hate the whole copy the APK from the system, change to zip, replace icons, put back in phone - process... wish there was a good app to change icons (not better cut, that only makes shortcuts on the desktop, eff that)

    If you could make the yellow ones w/ blue accents that would be sweet.

    These are sharp.

    Those are super sharp. Good work.

    Do you have the time and patience to do 175+ of them in multiple colors though? lol Mine are nothing compared to yours and it takes FOREVER to update them all each time someone makes a request for a color or type and I have to make 178 of the one color.

    LOL I turned down donations because then I feel obligated to update. If I don't update for a week with no donations no one can ***** because the **** is free lol.

    I don't use a single icon that I have in that thread.

    And BTW your work is MUCH MUCH MUCH better than mine. I wish I had that kind of photoshop skill.

    How did you learn? School, self taught, what? Everything I know has been from tutorials, self taught, just tinkering, etc. Nothing incredibly good.

    Actually go to the market, they updated their icon. Now it's a blue folder drawer thing.

    Better than their last icon though. I could have loaded some pixels in my a$$ and farted them out onto MS Paint with better results.

    Got an Associates Degree in GD. I did a lot of freelance work, had a website and everything, but I shut it down due to the birth of my son. I had no time to do anything LOL. But ya I pretty much just f*ck around and if something ends up looking nice, I use it lol, lots of tinkering.

    I believe you can, but don't hold me to that. Pretty much everyone uses "Bettercut".

    Bettercut v2.0:
