Revamped icons + usable script by Synfull Revamped icons + usable script by Synfull
For the last 2 days i've been working on redesigning the buttons seen on dA and i decided to upload what i have so far.

I decided to update a few of them partly because i either disliked the design or disliked the shading and then felt if i was doing some i might as well do them all.

They have all been copied from the 'more' drop down list so there are a few duplicates where they double up on those lists.

For a comparison the old official ones are on the left and mine on the right. I've struggled to come up for a friends and portfolio one so far so i've left them blank.

All of these are hand pixelled and shaded except the heart :D Alot are based on the originals so i don't take full credit for drawing the oes that have just been reshaded.

I would love to see these being able to be used (even if it was just a script) but unfortunately i don't have the knowledge to make that possible :(

Anyways i'm proud of what i have done so far :D And on a side note, i dislike the new journal icon dA has recently stuck up. It looks radioactive :|

Edit: The awesome ~trezoid has created a code to allow you to use these icons. I currently have it installed in Stylish and it works nicely.

You can grab a copy here. We are aware ot all of the icons are working at this time. It is a WIP.

I take no credit for the coding, all coding credit goes to ~trezoid

I really like the new icons. Many of them are much more understandable and they all look much better. The colors look better, more vivid.

I know you're probably not the person to ask, but for some reason it doesn't work: even after trying to install it several times, the new icons still don't show up. v7 maybe? ^^;

It is most likely a V7 issue. i'll have to poke the coder to see if they can update it

The random deviant button is a clever idea. I like that one. And I like the devWear shirt better, as well as the calendar sheet for today - makes more sense. :thumbsup:

But in general I find your shading much to dark for me (missing the brighter edge on the left), it doesn't contrast well enough with the background.
As a result some of your icons are hard to identify at first glance. Examples: your Browse/Gallery icon (a frame? The Mona Lisa is a good symbol to represent Art in general, imo), Manage Deviations (the screwdriver could also be a candle/stick/..?) and also Channels. The Chat & damnIt originals are just bigger and brighter and have more contrast. I can easily identify your versions but they seem much smaller than the originals...

Also I think some of the dark outlines present in the originals are needed to clarify: e.g. the yellow star in critiques bleeds to much into the blue bubble to be easily recognized for what it is.

I'm very sorry for this negativity - this must be very off-putting. But I hope you can take this as constructive or ignore it and not let it get to you in a bad way. :worry:

I don't actually take the comments negatively. After using them on the script for a while i have come to the same conclusion as many of your points. Despite black outlines being a big no in emotes i've come to realise why they exist on these icons as they do make them look alot more defined.

I agree on your points re the mona lisa. I prefer my frame style but the image dA has makes more senes. I just didn't want to copy it for these.

I agree on the screwdriver too. I'm not sure what the old one is meant to be but i see in such a small amount of pixels its not always easy to identify items.

I prefer the shading i have used throughtout however agree that at times the exact colours used are too dark and i need to adjust them. Some highlights are also needed in places.

In short: i know i have some work to be done before these are really up to site standard and people confirming my thoughts encourages me to get back to these and build on the comments.

:) ok, cool.
(btw, the Manage Deviation tool is a wrench)
