Trying out some fancy stuff :3
I made this icon for a little Automator applet I use which throws all of the detritus from my Desktop into a folder... somewhere...
The fancy illustrated background was something I haven't really done before, and I feel like I learned a lot in the process. The "easy way" to do this sort of background image is to work from a photo or a sketch, but I decided to try and model the background from scratch in 3d [which took longer, but was more fun].
It's certainly not perfect [and feedback would be amazing] but I'm happy enough with it to show you guys :)
I've also attached my original, more modest preview image, as well as a picture of the actual icon [which is shaded slightly differently, to work on backgrounds that aren't radiating light]. Enjoy!
