Icon for a guitar learning app.The metaphor was selected by the client himself.Initially, I suggested to use a chalkboard, which, I thought, would show the concept of 'learning' in a nice way.But the client thought that a pencil sketch on paper would look better.
Personally, I found the paper-sketch idea interesting and thought to give it a unique look.I am quite happy with the outcome so far.
While working on the icon, I learned something new.Instead of creating three different sections for the red part, I used a single layer with a rather complex gradient.Used the same technique for the white stripe and the blue end.
Don't forget to check the full view.Suggestions will be appreciated.

On a roll my friend! Just amazing!
Magnificent work, buddy!!
This is so sex.
Wowzer! Great concept and execution!
Awesome work! The colours of the pencil are great.
Awesome, I like it!
How was the sketch part created?
Did you use a wacom?
Looks great for a 512, I'm interested to see how the details hold up with the smaller sizes.
Great job! :)
The pencil details are really good Asher, it looks like the sharp pencil has just drawn the shape of the guitar. This is a great touch. Big up.
I've used the gradient method you mentioned before, but I've had trouble when I cannot rotate the gradient (in the layer styles) to the shape's slope. Yeah, you can make a layer of the gradient, but then it's harder to edit. Same with smart objects. :/ It works great if you want the lighting to show on more surface angles than it would otherwise, though, as you did. ^^
The crispness of this is excellent.

that is just genius!
Thanks for sharing the gradient tip. I'm always in favor of compacting as many layers as possible.
THAT'S a hot curly page ! Nice shot man
That page curl and line thing is what I am currently working on for my new app (Tasks). Nice work!
That's really beautiful!
The perspective on those hole-punched holes is the best I've seen, great work!
so cool. I liked a lot the perspective you made in the paper holes.
