    Check out the attachment: A 2560 x 1440 wallpaper :D

    There's also a Making Of!

    This is a rough concept for an aviophobia relief app icon. Aviophobia = fear of flying. The mood is set based on the colors I associate with dreams. The glassy icon frame reflects subtle, soft clouds. I tried to abstract as much away from the airplane as possible and keep it simple. No landing flaps and other non-shape-defining details. The frame itself represents the airport, on the right side the terminal with the gateway to the airplane.

    I don't have any intention for actually creating an app using this icon. At least not right now ツ

    Making of: Prototyped, modeled & rendered in modo 601. Then heavily post-processed in Photoshop, with 80% of the work dedicated to digital painting, cleaning up render glitches and other stuff. The wallpaper is digitally painted as well.

    @Konstantin Datz's and @Moritz v. V. 's Tiny Airport Scene Teaser 1 (+ #2) inspired me to do something with a sweet B747 aircraft.

    Let me know what you think. Found anything improve worthy? Which parts suck, which parts do you like?

    Love to read your awesome comments!

    @Pedja Rusic Yeah, I was concerned with these details too. If this icon would be used for an app, I would definitely create smaller versions with less detail to smooth them out a bit. Thanks for your feedback! Really appreciate it!

    @Dhiren Adesara T H A N K S :D

    @Tobia Crivellari Thanks dude!

    @玄天 lol, thanks a lot! 太爱你的图标 ツ

    @Rich Smith I will! In 60 - 70 years :D

    @AndyTheJoker @Igor Sidorenko Thanks guys!

    @Oliver Vogel Awesome to hear that from a top-notch 3D artist! Thanks man!

    Yeah the icon is superb and untouchable, but in most cases iOS icon is shown rather tiny and you won't see all the fine details

    @Ashwin Thanks :D

    @Alphabit Exactly! That's why good icons need to be developed in different sizes. Bigger = more detail. Smaller = less detail. I just did the XXL version for fun. Honestly, was just too lazy to think about the small versions, but I think it's not hard to get those right too. For example I'd remove the ripples from the gateway, and for the spotlight icon I'd get rid of the gateway altogether, as well as remove the tiny 1 pixel dots on the small frame. All this shiny stuff would just be noise when sharply scaled down. Totally agree with you! Thanks for your awesome feedback :)

    Nice lighting! I also dig that gateway idea to visualize the icon's frame as some kind of a terminal. Rocks!

    @Osilly Thanks! Trying to do something more vivid like your awesome stuff next time ツ

    @Sinan Acar @Artur Kasimov @Eddie Lobanovskiy Thanks! :D

    @Tuhin Kumar Thanks! I was hoping it looks kind of toy-like and cute. But it's not supposed to be some cheap plastic! Made from Taptanium alloy for flight safety. lol :D
