Purple Lines Icon Set


Badge Awards


So, I stumbled across this guy on dA a while back by the name of *Raindropmemory, a fellow from Thailand who does illustration of the extraordinarily adorable variety. However, what I was interested in were the icon packs he'd made in response to what he called a growing boredom with all the gleaming and shining icons for current operating systems out there.

Drawn by hand and painted in watercolor I thought the icons were beautiful in their warmth and organic feeling, and so I decided to try and go about making my own. Mainly I did this out of shameless imitation, but also because I wanted my dock to look as jazzy as my desktop folders did. Well, I don't have any sort of budget for watercolor, so I did the next best thing: Corel Painter. Since I'm still learning its ins and outs I thought I'd use it for this exercise in logo and icon design.

Thus, after quite some time in the workings, I bring you dA, to share and use as you like so long as you don't misappropriate who made them, my very first icon set. I call it Purple Lines, and it's inspired mainly by the aesthetic of this particular set here. Hopefully, I'm ripping him off in tribute.

P.S. Download to snag em'.

First of all, I'm a big fan of RM and I didn't RM's a guy. 2nd, this looks legit good and I'm quite glad of RM's influence on your artwork. I can clearly see you have your own style which is great because I know you don't want to end up being "just a copy". I think you found your own style in the process. Kudos to you on that. I hope you try making cursors and more icon designs in the future. Will be watching you from here on out. 
Keep it up mate! :D
