So I want to get started in icon design. I figured a pretty good way to do that would be to practice with basic shapes and to study some of the reflections and lighting. I've never really made anything like this before, but here is my first attempt from tonight.
P.S. Please bear in mind that I am not russian so there is a limit to my capabilities :P

Very nice attempt. If its at full resolution, the left edge of the disk is sharp while the right edge is blurred. You can move the path a few sub-pixels ;) Also, shadow can get some emphasis.
Thanks! This is scaled down to like the 30% I think. But wow I totally just now see that. Good eye!
very professional looking, for a first try, better than a lot of people who have been doing it for a long time. Gradients and highlight are near perfect.
Very nice color and light. Looks like you will do very well in icon design.
Thanks Joseph! I sure hope so. I'm trying to think of what a good next step would be for me to try. Any ideas anyone?
What do you think about choosing an icon from a designer whom you consider a master at icon design and try to recreate it for learning purposes?
Seems like a pretty good idea to me!
Cool! Look forward to seeing your next icon exercise :-)
Fantastic! The highlights are perfect.

I love to experiment with light, shadows and perspective. So here's my first try for 2011...
Thanks for Mac Tyler who inspired me to make my pure Fireworks gold bars! :)
