A legit app icon to represent Bacon Diet, an app coming soon for iOS and Android. Yep, it's bacon in a cast-iron skillet grill thing and the bacon took forever so please pity me.

I pity you. No way that bacon can look like that without quite a bit of work.
@Derek Giromini This is actually my third bacon round. The first one looked terrible, and the second looked overly burnt. This combo ended up a bit more obviously like bacon.
Uncooked bacon, salmonella. Looks soo god though.
Can we see it at 57px?
@Aaron Pearce For the right price.
@Ryan Ford I don't see how such a detailed icon can look good once you put it on a device, maybe it's just me?
@Aaron Pearce I went and whipped this up for you.
You know the drill: add it to your home screen.
I admit it's a pretty insanely detailed icon. More detailed than most icons are. However, the client really wanted extreme detail and I was happy to give it to him. I think the result still reads pretty well as bacon on a skillet, even at small sizes, and I'm okay with some of the grit and finite detail disappearing when scaled.
It's very impressive work, the detail level is amazing (is this only photoshop?). But doesn't it lack a bit of personality for an icon?
To me an icon should be more than an illustration and convey a brand or a concept. Here it only shows bacon in a frying pan and nothing else. What does that mean? Is the app going to teach me how to cook bacon, or is it about the pan?
Only relying on fitting-stuff-in-the-iphone-rounded-square-shape is a flawed trick. What happens if this goes on another platform? If you loose the rounded corners, it just goes back to being an illustration of cooking bacon, a very detailed one.
Again: hat's off, it's quite an illustration performance. But I think it's missing the point and the purpose.
@Hubert Florin You make great points, Hubert, as always. I do agree that the icon could have a more identifiable element to it, such as a logo or name, etc. However, I also feel that this icon will differentiate itself quite well in the app store amongst far less interesting icons. As for compatability, it is fully compatible with ios and android icon setups, as planned.
@Ryan Ford I think it looks great as an app icon, good work.
So nice! @Ryan Ford
(I guess I already said that on another shot.)
Oh, I can't eat what's on my computer. Right.
Licked my screen, got no taste of bacon.
I blame you.
hmm, must be delicious!
it looks yummy! ;-p
that's why is a great icon! congrats!
I would download the app just so I could have the icon on my phone.
@Adam Whitcroft you need to rub bacon on the screen first.
Bacon + icon = my eyes just got fatter. Nice work!
cewl, ... i always like your icons, ... this one is very funny too, ... 'cause of the sense it has ... ;-)
