How to make a trashbin icon by m1r1 How to make a trashbin icon by m1r1
Another small walkthrough of making an icon. This time I used Google SketchUp ( [link] ) too, not just Photoshop.

Sharing is encouraged. I just wish you include a link to my DeviantArt profile :)

You cheat! You started with SketchUp!
Looks nice.

LOL @ the little doodle old guy.

I did it like this:
1: Draw an office
2: Erase everything but the trash bin

Great idea to involve SketchUp into the design process to get the perspective right. Wohoo :)

I used it two years ago. Only a couple of times but I was surprised of how easy it is. I also tried out that Maxwell Renderer that can produce stunning results but takes so much time to render. SketchUp is really cool for quick mockups (even used directly or as wireframe). I bet Google improved SU since then ;) I fiddled around with Illustrators 3D capabilities but it’s a hazzle when you have multiple parts. I can’t get it right then ;)
