This is my submission for Gaia12 project (gaian.me) , the art project the aim to celebrate the beauty of nature.
At first I create the icons using vector art in Illustrator, but then found that my icon at that time doesn't relate to nature at all, it look too pure DIGITIAL.
I decide to scrapped everything and made a new one.
and This icon set above is the result.
I try to create these icons using the most natural way possible, or at least - LESS DIGITAL possible. I sketch on paper, paint with watercolor. Though I still have to use Photoshop to turn them into proper icon.
What this icon set have:
• Pixel not Perfect icons for general use on your PC.
• Unscalable, future not proof, But at-this-moment proof, so feel free to use them.
• Not Hyperrealistic
• No smooth gradient
• Confusing icon perspective
• Bland, mild, dull color, no eye cathing color, not follow good color theory
• Asymetrical, Organic, Life, Imperfection.
I would like this icon set to serve as inspiration for people to spend more time with nature, less screen time,
even just looking out of the window is an great achievement!
Feel free to use these icons as you like in any of your project, commercial or not. Some credit mention me somewhere is appreciated.
