I'm guessing a lot of designers here have been working on this icon. :)
almost 2 years ago
Love the gloss on the bottom of the bubbles :)
The lights look a little odd though.
so slick :o
Hmm imo i don't like the lights how they look, the bubbles and all that is great
Very good! I liked the lights and shadows.
nice reflections! I like that 1px highlight on the top reflection (:
Top notch as usal. Massive attention to details, which I love. ++
Great job guys!
Love love love! Sick sick sick!
Here is Parthiban's version of it :)
wow! I feel silly now. I didn't know this cool app, just found out with your amazing icon :) it looks like I remove WhatsApp and start using LiveProfile :)
I'm about moving mine to trash because of this...
Yah, definitely looks pretty damn close to one of Parthiban's http://dribbble.com/shots/106780-iPhone-App-Icon-2
Love the grid texture in the lights. Nice touches!
...and I'm inspired for another week. Thank you.
The lights have a harsh dark inset ring around them, but everything else has softer edges. The bubbles feel very full, but the lights feel very thin and feel more like a bunch of layer styles than something that was painted or styled custom.
Seeing icons at this size are very misleading though. Something that looks bad at this size, may look totally correct when scaled down in the real view.
I was about to say the same thing Patrick, it reminded me a lot of Parthiban's. What happned to that guy? He's a young genius and fell off the face of the Earth. He must have gotten snagged up by someone and working on something big, hehe.
God is in the details
This looks really awesome! Only thing that's throwing me off is...if the right bubble is over top the left, shouldnt the left bubble be embedded deeper into the background material? They're the same depth into the material right now no? Nevertheless, the detail here is amazing! Nice work!
Agreed with Patrick - Either the left bubble needs to be deeper or the right bubble needs to come out more somehow.
Your inspiration for this is dangerously close to - http://dribbble.com/shots/106780-iPhone-App-Icon-2 and even use the same colors as his other shot here - http://dribbble.com/shots/93368-iPhone-App-Icon
The bubbles themselves have an awesome shine to them - simple but perfect; however I'm not a fan of the indendation they're sitting in; looks a bit wrong around the top - but I can't put my finger on why.
Also as others have mentioned the depth of the overlapping bubbles doesn't really make sense given their equal height whilst sitting in the indentation - it's a bit Escher :p
Ah I think I figured out why a few bits look off - there are different light-sources for different elements. The bubble shine is top-down, but the shadow the right bubble is casting on the left bubble is right-left and the indentation seems to be evenly lit from our POV.
As a follow-up…
Overall I prefer the design of your icon, however the lighting is more consistent here: http://dribbble.com/shots/106780-iPhone-App-Icon-2
