Solace Icons II by quicksilver20 Solace Icons II by quicksilver20
Description: I built the glass orb myself in Illustrator, It's my fifth attempt at the same web button, and each time it looks more shiny and more realistic.

In the last attempt I figured out how to do transparency masks, which for Illustrator is convoluted and messy and still doesn't look as good as Photoshop's. I built these icons in PS using the glass web button I created in AI.

It's somewhat hard to tell from the preview, but these icons are somewhat translucent and look best on an object dock

The set is pretty small atm, if there are icons you'd like to see added to this style, add a comment.

Edit:5/10/10
Added suggestions from the first comment, I might be doing a full adobe suite to match this set, but atm I'm using square icons that match...

Improved quite a few already made, made an alternative Firefox icon and added carbon fiber effect to many blue and black icons. Also added many more, set now has 36 icons.

Finally finished the Adobe Suite set and added a set of like Autodesk Suite icons. I've added a few more of the normal spherical icons over time as I've needed them personally.

The square button was made by pulling the sphere into a square shape layer by layer, and then by going back through and adding a curve to the sides of all the layers. I also changed the button so that it was darker on the bottom. Set now contains 51 icons.

Edit 1/26/11
Set now has 62 icons
