This is actually not some tutorials but just the process of how I make an icon after the skecth. I guess I'll never handle icon so pixel-perfect like Iconka does, but I still think record a video from start is so interesting! :D

Your method of progress acts as an inspiration and suggestion for mine. I am not yet fluent enough in photoshop to create such a mixture of simplicity and complexity. Shortened terms: I really liked it, :+fav:

"I still think record a video from start is so interesting!"

I very much agree.
I wish more of the advanced Photoshop users would make videos like this.
As you said, not a tutorial but just to show the process from beginning to end.
As a novice Photoshop user, I find these types of videos extremely helpful, more so then tutorials sometimes.
