Q & A
"Will you stop doing icons in the current style after Windows 8 is out?"
No, i won't. Not immediately. W8 is a huge topic for me and i already showed some concepts and ideas i have.
But many people will still use Windows 7 after 8 is launched. Knowing that i will continue doing game-icons as they are at the moment until i have the feeling Windows 8 has enough attention to switch to something new."Are you sad when some icons don't have much views/downloads?"
If just 1 person has downloaded and uses something i created it's more than i expected.
People telling me they like my icons is just awesome! And thanks for that "Do you plan on stopping doing icons in the future?"
No plans for that!"Why don't you implement some requests?"
Well... how to answer this...
Depends on various reasons. Some games don't have good media (Wallpapers, Renders, Logos etc.) to work with for example.
It's not like: "I wont do an icon for game "xyz" because i don't like it!" Sometimes it takes a while.
I'm trying to handle as many request as i can "Will you (GameIcons Group) only release on deviantArt"
No. We have some plans for the future. More informations coming soon.............. "What tools are you using for your icons?"
For creating: Adobe Photoshop CS3 (Not a fan of CS4/CS5)
For converting: Axialis IconWorkshop 6.11"What do you do beside game icons?"
I also make "anime icons" with a good friend of mine
I introduced him to the "creating icons"-world and now we're doing them as team.
So, for all anime-fans: Check out his deviantArt profile for good anime-icons: [link]
He also takes requests
Besides icons i do some other stuff like wallpapers or web designs."Some final thoughts?"
Thanks for all the views and downloads of my works!
You guys are the reason i like this hobby and will keep on doing more.
No that i live in my own place with a cool housemate i have more time to work on my icons.
Now i can do icons all the time, no interruption due to work. This gives me the time to look for proper media i can work with. But youre always free to help me finding good stuff for a cool icon. Request info
- Icons will always come as ".ico" and ".png"
- Just icons for "Games" or "Game Tools" (No movie/shows/etc. folder icons)
- Don't re-upload them without my permission
Thanks for all the requests so far. Of course there are some more.
I will take my time to work off these first
