I had an idea about doing an icon set with smoke and glass. It's been a while underway, because (much like my Freehand efforts), these icons take absolutely forever to make, but I personally think it's been worth the effort!
The icons are individually crafted to look like the essence of each app floating in smoke-filled glass orbs, complete with photorealistics reflections. My wife thinks they look like those old school glassy marbles with threads of paint in them. I see her point. Whatever they look like, the do look great, and I'm happy to share the result with you all :-)
And even though I have only done, like, several *hundred* icons ❗
