 I decided to give icon making a try. Not sure how I feel about it yet haha. I used to do stuff like this in middle school like all the time. But I never did icons. I used gimp, since photoshop and I have a love-hate relationship.

I doubt they're good enough for anyone to actually want to use them haha. Which is to be expected seeing as this is my first attempt, and I didn't spend a whole lot of time on them. Although I have to admit I have seen a lot worse...and now I sound conceited. Anyway, here they are. There's only a few.

edit: for some reason there's a little white strip on 2 of the icons. at least when I viewed the icons on my desktop. idk why, idk how to fix it.

There are lots of very similar icons. I'm indecisive and experimenting :P

thanks! :)

I'm familiar with the basics of gimp, but it's hard to find tutorials. I know lots of icons makers do them, but with photoshop.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I had Gimp first too and there aren't a lot of tutorials so I just used tutorials for Photoshop but without the selective coloring layer :D

haha I'm afraid that I don't know enough about gimp and that all I would do is confuse myself. The only reason I know the basics is b/c I took web design in school. If I had kept up with it, I'd still remember how to do everything in photoshop, but I haven't touched it in over 2 years

If you want to I can try to get you back to Photoshop. It's not that hard :)

i'm using gimp because it's free. i can never find a serial that works so that i can download and use photoshop. and gimp is a lot like photoshop, so i can use what i know about photoshop there. except that i'm pretty rusty when it comes to photoshop :P lol
that's what I meant by my above comment.

Oooh ok, now I get it :) And yeah, I had the same problem but then I found a download for a working Photoshop somewhere (I think it was on the lj comm yousendit but I'm not sure) and since then I'm working with Photoshop :D
