My take on the Messages icon. Same concept, same shapes… just a tad more polished. What do you think?

There is an app for that: INSTALIKE ! :)
Way better, hated the original one.
@Wolfgang Bartelme Looks good :)
I really love this. Not sure about anyone else, but I find the ... of the original (and this version) slightly distracting. I keep thinking someone is typing a message, even when the app is idle. Probably just me though.
Anyway, I really dig the wider lighting effects on the sides.
The blue bubble is awesome, Wolfgang. Still have my problems with the small one. It just looks as if somebody is typing right now … The look and feel is way better in your icon, though. Really Great work!
Wie immer sehr sehr gute Arbeit! :)
Maybe it's just me but the small bubble looks a bit too blurred in the lower half
Sweet jesus, this is awesome!
You should maybe darken the stroke on the "...".
I still don't like the stripes, but I understand you were sticking to their idea, just fixing it up a bit. It does look so much better.
@Bjango ✎ Marc Edwardsys Not just you :) I get the same feeling about someone always typing a message. I removed the icon from my dock because it was distracting...
@Wolfgang Bartelme much better than original :)
no chance for a download link?
I would maybe make the dots in the white bubble slightly darker, however GREAT work @Wolfgang Bartelme !
@Wolfgang Bartelme I'd love to post the PSD on 365psd if you're interested. Feel free to submit it here:

That is absolutely stunning! Awesome job.
Beautiful. Would love to sport this guy on the dock. :)
Very nice! Now I just want an ICNS file. :D

Mainly for practice, but also because I didn't like the "..." on the original shot.
I just can't get the 3d feel right - it's so great on Wolfgang's shot.
Here's the .psd

My take on a replacement for Messages icon, inspired by Wolfgang's one and the Messages app for Mac.

Jumping on the bandwagon, but with a bit of the old iChat icon in there too.

My first day on Photoshop, I really liked Bartelme's version, so I thought to remake it for self-training, this is the result.
@Wolfgang Bartelme love it. Looks great. I really like how the magnifying effect of the glassy substance alters the width of the diagonal lines.
Nice work on this wone Wolfgang, Looks way more polished.
Btw i just released the icon. Grab it while it's hot :) http://www.bartelme.at/journal/archive/messages_icon
