Wil is tired after six hours of Tennis in 100° F heat. And now Wil has been at Starbucks for a few hours, and is finishing an app icon that I should've been finished with last Wednesday. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee

fucking attention whore :P
I love you, Pritty!
The one edge of the pencil seems a bit too large – makes the pencil seem flat.
Just wondering, how do you draw the perspective shape? was wondering how other designers are doing it
@Adi Hezral Depends on the icon. In this case, I based the roundrect off of Game Center's, seeing as the app may eventually have an iOS counterpart. Doesn't look out of place with such similar perspective.
Otherwise, I have a vanishing point grid set up that I use for drawing basic shapes at different angles/perspectives for HIG-compliant icons.
I like the colors and perfect pixels :)
@Wil Nichols cool. Was the vanishing point grid based on something you found or is this just based on current Mac icons? I used to do it via illustrator 3d. Tried to do it with the new 3d grid in illustrator but gave up.
Based it on different system icons. It's surprisingly inconsistent, but works well enough in the system. They're just lines I drew in Photoshop, not an actual Photoshop grid or anything in Illustrator. Those tend to be more hassle than they're worth.
@Wil Nichols What is inconsistent about the template lines you use? Don't mean to grill you, just learning the technique.
The holes in the paper looks worse than the rest, and the dropshadow from the yellow onto the wood of the pen looks too dark. Perhaps you did it to create contrast? Pen looks too flat, like Matt said, but the metal is really well executed.
Overall really nice :)

I was rethinking some old icons.
