Icon request, I humbly appeal to the artists here

Postby Lantesh on Thu Dec 31, 2009 6:01 pm

Ok I hope I'm not imposing, but I have a request, and with the collective artistic talent here I'm sure someone will find this a fun and interesting task. I found the following Firefox icon that is just perfect for Mint, and am now using it on my panel. The problem is I now need a matching Thunderbird icon, and do not have the skills to make it. Can anyone convert the included Thunderbird icon to match. I would be forever grateful. :D

richyrich, that was 3-4 hours well spent. Those look great! I got bored again myself, and tweaked my terminator and nautilus icons. I don't have the talent you guys have, but I think they came out ok. :D

As long as, you 'artist' types are at it. May I make a humble suggestion?

Why don't you continue to design a Mint specific set of icons? As you've been doing.

And not post them as, a complete set, but piece by piece, as it strikes your fancy ... and posting them here.
For other Mint users to download and install to their panel/taskbar/menu as they want

After, the set is complete, then ... the Complete Mint Icon Set can be posted to Mint-look art site or to DeviantART.
But not only for downloading the complete set but ... a piece-by-piece download.

We already have a Firefox, Thunderbird, Terminator, Nautilus and (??) icons done . . . what else?
In a Green and Silver theme, so far.

It's all Lantesh's fault ! . . :lol: . . well, I was playing with AWN, and couldn't find a matching Cairo Clock for my theme . . so I made up this clock face to replace the HTC Hero face. (just had to copy/rename them in /usr/share/avant-window-navigator/applets/cairo-clock/themes/HTC HERO clock, as root of course! )

Ok here are the terminator and nautilus icons, and one for gnome-alsamixer. They are not on par with the other work here, but since you asked I am happy to post them.

Excellent!! Keep 'em coming.

Any other artists . . . we would always welcome your input and designs?

Even other color combination's . . . doesn't have to be the "Green and Silver" theme. But, yes, for Mint specific.
