I'm 25 and somehow people think i would be good at drawing.
Actually i locked a monkey in my closet who does all the work
To draw, ink and finish one icon it takes me about an hour.
Of course i use a little Photoshop magic to correct errors and adjust contrast or enhance the geometrical form for the best possible result.

Thanks for all your support!
The project was on hold since motivation was not exactly my strong siut. Right now I feel like starting to draw icons again but I lack time and funds.

Also: Don't let others do your thinking. Beleive in whatever you want but leave others the fuсk alone. Please.

Also, keep being awesome & creating stuff, don't let these a-holes keep you down. They'll hopefully eventually be peed upon by rabid dogs with aids or something & then they'll be sorry? o.O

I like your "about the author". These icons are kinda cool, just a tad too bland/colorless for me. I like the crazy epic stuff with a little realistic thrown in, however, I do really love hand drawn icons/artwork. Almost nothing beats it. There are too many damn people making too many ridiculously boring, lame & bland icons with absolutely no talent or skill required. Literally, they most of the time look just like the regular/original icons for something so much that I don't understand for the life of me why they would waste the time doing it. Why even bother changing icons to ones that look practically the same? Anyways, these do not fit into that scenario, these are fun & interesting & cool! :)

Also, I hate people with a passion who upload already free content to sites like rapidgator, uploaded.net etc for two damn reasons: the fact they're making money off of something that is already free and not theirs & without any credit given & that the a-holes are wasting everyone's time on websites people go to for paid content (free) by clogging it with pages and pages of their attempts to make money with no work. It's disgusting. This is the only form of copyright issue that I think copyright laws were created to try & prevent. It's one thing to share with others, but it's an entirely other thing to make money off of something you didn't create/don't own/don't have permission to & also to not give credit. Infuriating. Sorry that's happened to you....I've found my shitty patterns on one of the graphics sites I go to, from an uploader I despise, and while I didn't spend the amount of time on them as you have on these, I can completely understand how you'd lose motivation to do anything else. These things are why open-source licenses should be the norm for things & the basis for copyright, or sharing. Basically the idea of the license that must always follow the item & nobody is allowed to change or make something free into something that costs money, especially when specifically stipulated...

Hi everyone!
Sadly im not only short in time my motivation is virtually zero. People still reupload my work and put it on their own site to make money with it while I chose my work to be free of charge and ads.
It just crushes any incentive when you have to do additional work to earn your living while others abuse your non-profit work for their profit.

project is on hold until i find a way to earn money with myself without you folks having to pay for it.

Hi! I don't know if you're still making icons or not but (as lame as it sounds) an icon for Spider Solitaire would be fantastic, as well as one for Scrivener and Notepad ++.

Thanks for the great icon pack! :D
