My OCD kicked in and I had to soften them just a tad. Think the rounded corners make all the difference in making the icons a little more friendly.

Damn Jesse this is slick!
Fantastic stuff, man :)
Is it just me or does the user icon look a little lighter than the other two?
Rounded corners do indeed create friendliness. Well-said.
I particularly like the toolbar used in the background. Awesome!
Oooooh so nice and clean. So simple, yet so elegant! *hats flying*
The icons are good. But I would have to say that the actual bar behind them takes the cake.
@Brendan it seems lighter because the other two have really tight areas (no pun intended) so the inner shadow's effectiveness on the other two gives off the illusion that the "add user" icon is lighter. I did a poor job of conveying that, but I hope you get the idea.
@Dalton: Took the words right out of my mouth. That's exactly why it looks lighter in comparison to the cal icons.
The bar behind is the result of literally 10 seconds playing with a linear dodge gradient just to spice up the preview a bit :D
Perhaps it's my ocd, but it really bugs me. The key here is that "it seems lighter." It's like type design. You have to forget mathematics - if it looks wrong, it is wrong.
(Not saying it's completely wrong, just slightly wrong. Your work is great.)
I know what you mean, and it bugged me to. It's been fixed up for the final version :) Same with aligning things... I trust my eye over the align tools.
Ah, sweet. :)
Keep up the good work mate, you make me jealous. In an good, admiring kinda way. x)
Sweet stuff Jesse. The, what I believe is a repeating icon, in the calendar glyph looks superb!
Awesome! Those are beautifully polished :).
