You need the axel reflection orange/tan :P

The stitches the best part about it ;)
@Juan Gomez @Seb Jachec Sadly, not made in GIMP: GIMP lacks any sort of way to distort textures. I think Photoshop has some warp filters and the built in 3D tools... anyway, GIMP has none of that. So, here is what I did for the hat texture:
• Find a nice tileable fabric texture [Like this one]
• Make a 3D model of the hat [in Blender]
• Use a UV map to place the texture on the hat
• Render that, with no shading, to get a distorted version of the cloth texture, which I can then add back into GIMP and treat like a normal texture, fuss around with blending modes, etc.
Texturing is challenging in that you can't just map an image texture to your shape most of the time, you have to shade the different surfaces in the texture individually. So I separated the image into discrete black and white components and applied shading gradients to each individually to make things look realistic.
As you know, I try to never use 3D in icons, but texture distortion is one of the few areas where I can't get it in GIMP alone through a good understanding of light and shadow. The feature is simply not there, and though I have tried quite hard to find a workaround 3D has turned out to be by far the best option. You can see I used the same trick in my Textedit icon, another situation where you have a texture wrapping on a curved surface.
I would show you what the final texture layer looks like after playing around in GIMP, but, as @Wil Nichols mentioned I sort of accidentally overwrote my final master file with the 32px version...so...yeah.
This is incredible!
Gooorgeous! And thank you for the .icns, it's on my dock ;)
(actually you've got my Finder on the dock since forever)
good shadows and reflections
@Ollin Wow! Thanks a lot for the info. :) You should consider writing up a blog post or something on your design process. I've tried messing around in Blender before, but, strangely, never incorporated it with Photoshop.
Lol, for the last icons i uploaded here I used a very basic 3D model made in google sketchup, it's been the first time I use a "3D" software, I second @Seb Jachec about writing a little on how to use 3D software for basic work like this. It'd be really helpfull.
Good job! I would just lighten up the shadows imo :)
Had been looking forward to the explanation! We'll have to talk when I'm back from break.
would be the great icon replacement for Little Snitch
Looks better than original icon.
A M A Z I N G !
brilliant work, textures are amazing :)
This is amazing!
