Welcome to DC 60
Icons : Wood or Steel


Topic: 20 Icons for Apple devices (iPhone/iPod/iPad/etc.)

Description:This week we will be making 20 wood or steel icons for Apple devices themes.
Make the following 20 icons:-
App store
Calculator
Calendar
Camera
Clock
Contacts
iPod
iTunes
Mail
Maps
Messages (sms)
Notes
Phone
Photos
Safari (internet browser)
Settings
Stocks
Weather
YouTube
+ Any 1 social media icon of your choice (e.g. Facebook/Twitter/StumbleUpon/Google/etc.)

If you are using Photoshop you can use Custom Shapes or Brushes to make your icons (or make them from scratch).
I want to see 2 psd files from those of you who use Photoshop.
You can download some shapes provided by your_mother in the previous icon challenge here

For those who don't use Photoshop or dont want to show a psd you can download a set of 45 png images here to work with.
You can resize, mix & match them in any way you want. I will not accept any other shapes from those of you who use programs other than Photoshop.
If you use only shapes from these 45 png's I'm giving you, then you don't have to show any psd files (even if you used Photoshop to finish making your icons).

Icon size: 120 x 120px
(Developers recommend leaving 8-10px transparent around your icon – but drop shadow or glow effects can be used in this space)

or 256 x 256px
(Developers recommend leaving 20-25px transparent around your icon – but drop shadow or glow effects can be used in this space)

You can use this standard button as your guideline for shape & size:
or

Resources: If you dont have Photoshop you can use this set of png shapes to make your icons: Download
Here is a collection of Photoshop custom icon shapes that Eric has collected for You Download (this is a Photoshop csh file)
Also you can download more from : http://www.shapes4free.com/

and here are some steel and wood patterns and pictures :
1.Woods
2.Steels

For some inspiration you can look at these icon packs: Link
you can also browse the iPhone galleries here on M9 for ideas/inspiration: Link

Examples:-
for wood icons

for steel



You will post the following in the Entry Thread:

1. All your icons on one 800 x 800px preview
(you will have to resize them to fit the preview)

2. A layered file ( a psd or xcf file) for at least 1 of the icons
(if you used only the resource shapes provided you can skip this)

3. Gallery Link
(please add DC 60 to your icons name when uploading)


How to add icons to the gallery:

Upload
Don’t know device
Themes
Icons
(you need to resize your preview to 500x500px and place the 20 icons in a zip folder first)

that's a very difficult question to answer ... you just have to know Photoshop very well I guess.
and read a lot of tutorials: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/40-hand-picke...shop-tutorials/
