what do you think?

Lol really creative, for effect i would add some sparks or fire.
Also when doing wood the edges dont look as they have been dipped in watter, you have a lot of soft lines, id suggest making the image a bit sharper. but yeah play with it some more :)
Thanks for the awesome feedback @Pedja Rusic! I agree that the wood texture on the bg is a bit soft. Fire is a good idea~ ;)
I love seeing these realistic iphone icons. Great job.
That said, it took me a sec to understand what this one was—it looked a little too … solid, I guess. Without the match being struck (and the tags and the title), I'd've had to guess at what the icon was.
Could you make the sides look more open somehow? Perhaps make the book look more weathered by tearing or creasing it back a bit to peek at the other matches inside.
@Kurt Madsen Thanks for the complement. Funny thing about the comment you made is that its pretty much what the client said. I was going for an understated look that makes you think about it without being too literal. It didn't fly.
I have tried a few variations where it's rotated about 10 degrees or so... but it just does not look right. As for ripped/weathered; tried em too and looks good in the larger sizes but on the iphone3/4, it gets too small to be of use. :(

Ha! You responded while I was rough-sketching and scanning. :)
I had the same thought as you about skewing the viewpoint to one side so you'd see the inside. Then, the curves of the icon could match the curves of the matchbook cover.
If I get a chance, I'll try to fully realize this concept in PS or AI later.

Sad it doesn't actually work with the vp to the side. I hadn't considered that.
Btw, I like the added touch of the staple in the bottom. You do some quality work, man. :)
If this is still being worked on, here are a few ideas that stick with your current vp and design and could give the icon a little more grit or realism:
- recessing the staple a bit more (making it pinch the cardboard)
- bending the length of the match (so that it looks like it's being pressed against the striking surface)
@Kurt Madsen Thanks for your feedback and comments. I like the bending the matchstick idea. ur an awesome dude~
Thanks, man. Sorry for taking taking over your comments. :P
@Kurt Madsen no need to be sorry~ I really appreciate it!
Look really cool David!
@Graham Holtshausen Thanks~
Are we going to see a new version sometime? ;)
