This was an early work in progress version. The icon has since been completed along with a few additional color variations. :)
They are all downloadable here

That is awesome. It's going right into Candybar ASAP. Can you do a PNG or ICNS with transparency?
Shit man, this iTunes thing should be a competition on dribbble. I want official dribbble competitions.
This is really nice. Not sure I love the cartoony music notes, but love the rest of the icon.
You hear that Dan? More realism plz.
Love it! Can we get a download link?
Looks pretty good so far. You made a good job making the concept prettier :)
Dan, please release this!
I want this, NOW!
Brilliant! Absolutely love it.
Thanks everybody! - Looking at it small like this, it might be a little busy. I think I might do an alternative version with just the color, minus all the goings-on inside. If I put an early version for download up I'll post it to my Twitter.
This is how it should have been.
nice work mate ;)!
The only iTunes 10 replacement icon I would use so far.
The background looks almost exactly like an Iconfactory-designed iTunes replacement icon I've been using for quite some time. I can tell the design has been recreated and not just copied pixel-for-pixel, but the colors and concept are almost identical…so similar that yours must have been heavily inspired by theirs (though perhaps subconsciously?).
It's in the Flurry System set; you can see it in the lower left here:
This is easily my favorite of the replacement icons. I even jumped the gun and put it in my dock: http://img.skitch.com/20100902-ksxfi6t1g9yjm84q3ajhde4bfn.jpg
@Jason It could also be said that Iconfactory might have been influenced by an icon from my first icon set that I made a few years ago. They did make theirs a lot better though, hehe. Good eye! - All 3 together -
The best out there...
This rocks. Maybe the best one of all I've seen so far!
Now we're talking.
Aha…the rabbit hole goes deeper than I suspected! In isolation it does look like you and the Iconfactory guys who worked on this set (David Lanham and Louie Mantia) might have hit the ball back and forth a couple times…but then I remembered this:
Seems it's more a matter of everyone being in tune with Apple's designs. At least something useful came out of tv though!
I'd agree that Iconfactory did a nicer job vs. your original, but your new one's definitely on par (and actually, I prefer the slightly richer contrast and saturation in yours, and the bright flare gives it more punch). The metal frame reflected on the glass is a nice touch. The only thing I don't care for is the rounded beam that joins the music notes. Seems a bit out-of-place with the rest of the design. I do like the flatter shading on the notes though (there's more than enough gloss in the rest of the design).
By the way, I don't find it overly busy. The Iconfactory icon's been in my dock for at least a year, and it doesn't bother me.
Totally subjective criticism: The dark lip on the top part of the metal ring seems out of place. I wouldn't expect it to dip in there if the thing were physically in front of me. I love the colors though.
@mattdaniels Thanks Matthew. I'm planning on fixing that along with a few other little things for the final icon.
Sweet! :) Downloadable? (even if it's wip, I'd use it!)
