    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!

    Background is veery fancy! :) But I like it, it makes everything more realistic in some way.

    Some how those gaps of tiles in the ground feels very 2D, maybe can try to give some depth on that.

    Great icon, and very nice to see how you have improved your skills in the two year time.

    Some feedback for you: You could have the lower part of the broom bend more. Check out this photo: http://thumbs.dreamstime.com/z/old-broom-clipping-path-15869807.jpg
    The tip of the broom almost points in a 90 degree direction where it touches the floor.

    @Fabricio Rosa Marques It's a hybrid. By the way, I don't use PS... but, yeah, for textures that were in perspective I used the 3D model to render out a shadeless texture-only layer like this that I could then shade over.

    @Iconfinder In older, more used brooms like the one you linked, the bristles start to develop a natural curvature & flexibility. In an "idealized" or freshly-purchased broom, they're actually really stiff–just like with a new toothbrush. So if they were being held in the air with invisible support–like mine is, with the tip barely touching the ground–the bristles on the end of an idealized broom should be straight.

    Now, for the sake of the art, I think that the place where the bottom tip of the broom touches would look better if I had made the bristles bend a little to lie on the surface of the floor. But not too much, or it will look old and worn :)
