Anyone want to share a nice material editor icon that I could use for SkIndigo? :)

Cool cpfresh! Those all are pretty good! Thanks! I don't really know what I want. I tried to make one a long time ago that looked like the Indigo Material Preview model but I wasn't happy with it.

@Godzilla: I would definitely like to see something from you. You do nice work!

Did you make those in sketchup? :o That's a rather odd program for doing Icons, I would normally think.


Well, Whaat, what is the icon going to be used for, exactly? the material settings section of the Skindigo exporter? How large does it need to be?

I was bored so I just made one.


Tell me if you want anything changed or re-sized.

@cpfresh: Really like the latest icon! However, when I bring it into the toolbar, there is not enough contrast between the background and the icon and it doesn't look right. Maybe make the 'console' darker?

@godzilla: Really nice icon! Maybe simplify or eliminate the background and just keep the bucket and then have the rest as alpha? I think that would work better for me. I like the dripping paint but it doesn't show up very well when I shrink it down to 24x24. Maybe make the dripping paint wider?

Really appreciating the contributions here!

OK,

While I really like your icon cpfresh, I think godzilla's looks better at small scale. I modified it slightly to bring back the dripping paint (which I liked). Thanks a lot guys!

You'll see the icon used for the next SkIndigo release.
