I was trying to match the bomb colors for some reason. My bad.

I simplified it, how's this?

Also Australia doesn't use them, they take stuff to the post office.

It needs to be just cyan, with partially transparent fill, not dark blue fill. It's also probably too complicated in design in terms of number of curves used.

I took out a couple of the curves, and made the bow smaller.

Here's three versions: 50% transparent, 62% transparent, and 75% transparent on the blue fill.

The fill needs to be cyan, as in my example. Not blue.

My photoshop eyedropper tool detected the color in your concept image as the blue color you see in my previous examples when I opened up your sample image, hence the blue.

Here are cyan on cyan versions.

Could you make the lines a bit thinner, similar to the other overlay icons earlier in this thread, and make the whole thing smaller within the area of the file?

There should be a bit more empty / transparent space around the edges, separating the icon from the borders.

Also, I think it's a bit too busy / complicated in the middle. The other icons are very simple in design. Perhaps removing the bottom portion of the ribbon, so it's just the box and loops at the top would help?

Committed... I think it was the 38% one?

Um, has Ta'Lon given a proper licence statement? I might have missed it, but can't find it anywhere...

Possibly not.

Ta'Lon, could you make a post, or edit a post, to state that you release your submitted icons under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license?

What he said. I posted the artwork ideas above knowing full well they'd be going out into the wild. So any artwork that I have posted in this forum is hereby submitted under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 License.

Except my avatar of course!

Will that do?

I'll keep the 38% figure in mind as a guide for transparency in future work. Unless you think it should be less? I don't mind submitting multiple versions so you can pick the best one.

I just picked the one with an alpha channel in the semi-transparent part that was close to the other similar icons. Icons / graphics for other purposes will have different transparency requirements.

Another icon request: A magnifying glass to represent searching, with default, pressed, and mouseover forms.

Better would be if it was clear that any future posts are covered by the statement.

Quick question while I take a crack at the magnifying glass thingie. Looking at the current graphics set, I do see that there are normal, hover, and clicked versions of the files, but in most (all?) cases the hover and clicked versions are essentially the same color/graphic. Do you want to see a color distinction between hover and click?

Also, what size file do you want the Magnifying Glass? 64x64,128x128, or some other size?
