As soon I saw today the icon from @Mike Beecham my mind was blowed! I really loved the style and the totally new twist gave to this simple icon design. I would love to see a set or something like that! This is a mail icon, I hope Mike will appreciate :) I attach full pixel

There's a couple of things in here for me Pietro..I love the fact that you've taken something similar and put your own spin on it. You got something so close to being a great icon.
Here's some thoughts for you to consider...
1) I love the colour scheme, but it seems a little overly harsh to me. When you put it on your handset, it might be a little too much when sat next to other icons.
2) I love the idea behind the refractions on top, but bear the shape in mind. When you have something that is essentially flat, will the refractions be that 'rounded'? I'm not sure. I'm not saying I'm right...just wondering.
3) The icon really doesn't stand out enough against that background. I know the background isn't the point...the icon is, but in order to show off the icon, you want to make it more than the background it sits on.
4) The gloss on the bottom-right corner doesn't look real compared the other work. I'd lose it.
Hope that helps mate.
@Mike Beecham Mike you have no idea how much this comment means for me! Having a such of nice and clear feedback from a designer like you does not happen everyday :) I have to say that after I read what you suggested I start to see all these weak point and I totally agree with you, especially on the 4th, I don't really know what the gloss come out from ahah But I guess my eyes still need to get more in these little finesses, that's why I like to be inspired by who is better than me and comment like yours are definitely a good thing!
@Pietro Schirano great work on that and I guess by considering the points, @Mike Beecham mentioned it will be even more striking. good work.
Good work. Again icon needs to be brought forward with 3d look
