Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

Well me figures I should venture back into the world of dock icons, starting with a brand new set. I think I'm going to lay the HydroPro pack to rest, since continuing it would become fairly redundant.

Instead, I've started an entirely new pack, and not giving too much away, but it won't be at a perspective angle, but rather a straight on point of view, and honestly I think it makes the desktop look that little more polished (not to mention it's a HELL of a lot easier). However that's not to say the detail will be less.

So... yeah, hope you guys look forward to that.

Also, while we're on the subject of dock icons, I've wondered if selling icons would be a good idea. Now this isn't a definite thing I'm going to do, but I'm curious as to how many people would actually purchase icons, not just for desktop use but for any type of commercial or non-commercial use. Since I'm not working at the moment I'm kinda left with no income... so yeah, I need to do something about that, lol.

Also, on another note, my Plumma game was entered into a state wide "competition" for best student work of the year. There was no 1st, 2nd, 3rd style placements but just placements into the top 10, which I managed to get. My work will be on display in Melbourne Museum for a whole month, and the opening will be in about.. a month. And I'm already receiving media attention, having arranged an interview already.

One more thing; that game I'm working on... yeah it's gonna be kick-ass lol.

OUT!

Hi, nice to see you there!
Good luck for your new set, it's a great idea to start a new series, a new pack would be better ;)
MediaDesign's avatar
Yeah I'm still breathing ;)

I'm going to avoid doing it the way I did with the other pack, by releasing more as time goes past. Instead I'm just going to make it into a pretty massive packager to begin with.

Thanks :D

Are you going to do a complete replacement set or a tiny set (like only hardware...)
MediaDesign's avatar
Nah I'm going to try and make a complete set to replace all (well, most) icons for a computer (specifically XP), and definitely a range of different programs/misc too.

But obviously I shouldn't guarantee that :P
