Few days ago I spent some time to create new icon sets for brand new wego. These icons are based free icons out there where I did some tweaks here and there.
The challenge is that I need to provide variety size icons in Psd format.
At first I create it on Illustrator, than I start to redraw it in Psd and make adjustment on each size.
I'm new to this and wondering how usually you guys done this.
How is your workflow? create it in vector then port it in Psd?
Please share your work flow here if you don't mind :)

Nice. I start in illustrator and then make pixel-level changes to the png or jpg etc. Although, straight up svg may be an option.
These I looking good Bady, however some of them don't have consistent style (If I can bitch a bit). For example "bus" has very different style, strokes, shapes from train or the two "windows". I can see that you tried to use round corners only where they naturally fit, but sometimes, to make things more consistent it is good to use round corners more consistently through the set.
I usually start with a list of things I want to represent by icons, write down any metaphors that come to my mind and pick the right ones. I use also http://www.iconfinder.com and NounProject to aid myself.
Then I sometimes draw pencil sketch or I go directly into Illustrator. I usually create pixel perfect icons right there in Illustrator (with pixel grid on).
Hope that helps. Keep up the great work my man.
@Jonathan Patterson looks the same with mine. you mean save it as svg file?
@Pavel Maček Thanks man. You're definitely right on the consistency of the icons, this need to be fixed :)
I did the same that I create this with pixel grid on, and with 32 px rectangle shape that locked as a based layer as a guidance too..
Thanks for the input man, appreciate that.
I have not embarked on my own set of icons yet. I have started to put some ideas on paper. Then do research and try to sketch them, but I am not the best drawer. Illustrator works great, but I do my work in Fireworks which eliminates the need for Illustrator and Photoshop. You can export the different files created to be a .psd if needed.
