Hey guys, it's very much a work in progress. The shadows and container are wrong. and I exported Img2Icns instead of IconBuilder (doesn't work in CS6).
I'm going to give you the PSD file, please rebound and share any "fixes" and new creations you do…
Here's the PSD (yes I realize the template sucks, but i did it in 2min)
Here's the ICNS

please send it to Adobe, the new one is too ugly ;-)
Looks good! I think the grid could be more prominent in the smaller versions. You can't really see it. Also the corner radius on the inner rect should be smaller, the corners get pinched right now: http://cl.ly/3a0b3e2b043U1Q3U3t0E
@David Keegan Agreed on all points. I'd love to see what other people make with the PSD. Lazy me made it in 10min. Do you use a formula for the inner radius? I usually eyeball it (in this case copied, and didn't take the time), but curious what other do.
Things I'd change:
**Pattern more prominent at smaller sizes (artifact of my dirty export process)
** fix inner radius
** fix the strange highlight that makes it feel "bent"
** use the correct font (which is?)
The shadow is also crooked but it's hard to see.
Looks alright in my dock! (i'll fix it more this evening, would love to see other people's versions!!!)
@Court Kizer The inner radius should be smaller by x, where x is the width of the border. So if you have a 2px border and the outer radius is 5px, the inner radius should be 3px.

Okay I'm adjusting based on feedback from David. Do you think I made the center too dark? I used linear burn, which I personally like but I guess it isn't realistic for shadows though I like the burned effect.
I updated the texture inside and made it darker at the same time.
Here's the updated PSD (messy layers)
I think I really need to change the highlight to more of an iMessage on the top. I'd love to hear more feedback
