Not wanting to repeat myself but this post is directly related:
Some of the steampunk icons I've created and used in Rocketdock, many of these are just work in progress so feel free to borrow:
FTP - This one looks much better when it is a small icon
(If anyone wants to know how to create the guttering flame then just see here: http://lightquick.co.uk/index.php?option=com_mmsblog&task=show&id=129&Itemid=227
Thumbwin / Minimize - application to thumbnail your apps on the desktop
Explorer or in my case I use File Explorer2 as one of the Explorer alternatives.
Web HTML Editor (in my case frontpage, could be dreamweaver or similar)
realplayer recorder/player/ripper (winamp or similar)
The same without the recorder for a program manager (Stack Docklet)
More on the same theme - VLC or other player
This is the icon I use for the 'evil' MS File explorer, it could be used for anything Microsoft, Windowes (sic) update or possibly Outlook?
Editor (could be notepad, in my case I use the Context editor)
Diary /Journal (Lotus Organiser)
Photoshop - Not happy with this one, I use the one below,
Much happier with the camera above...
Opera - the web browser
Difference Engine no.2 - Im not sure what you could use this for...
I use this padlock as the icon for Truecrypt
Firefox (poor, poor thing) - I now use this for the sandboxed version of firefox using sandboxIE.
File Manager (in my case FreeCommander and/or Explorer2)
File Explorer ... Doh!
Word Processor, Word, Open Office
? - you've seen this before but it could be used for something...just added a glass cover to the gauge
another under construction, it is actually the dial from the candlestick phone above
Web browser, the world wide spider spinning the world wide web
Recycle bin (still working on this one)
Control Panel or something. I use it for opening the Computer Administration window thusly:
Email, on her majesty's service
Yahoo widgets startup
Another anti-virus tool icon, this one is slightly different to the previous.
I am using this one as a replacement for the start button - the image is not particular indicative of its function but what can you replace a start button with if not another start button, so I've gone for something more ethereal. It calls a useful start menu replacement called Jetstart.
I'm working on using this zodiacal image for something else too, forgive the fact that it is rough at the edges. I'm sure someone can find another use for it. I really like this one and in fact I am working on turning it into a widget.
Typewriter with screen -more dieselpunk this one, I use it as the icon for the program 'console', this provides a transparent 'DOS' window for performing command line tasks that is almost infinitely better than the Windows DOS box.
Basically take your pick... each getting slightly more steampunk
A nice one for your wireless, this one looks much better when shown as an icon.
Goodsync or similar backup/synchronisation tool
For a movieplayer?
Suitable for an images or pictures folder?
I use this for safari - it is a basic untouched alethiometer. I might do something to it later when I have an inspiration,
And this I use as the icon for 'iconoid' a little program for sillysoft that controls the desktop icons, hiding them &c.
Both of these icons look better iconised in smaller versions as the contrast has been enhanced, you are seeing the larger PNG version here.
An icon that could be used for Safari
Photos? War of the worlds Game?
Photos? War of the worlds Game?
I will add them both to the icon set here soon. http://rocketdock.com/addon/icons/38398
Here it is in action:
They are all transparent PNGs images that Rocketdock can easily use. Just right click/save as and copy them into your Rocketdock icons folder. Rocketdock will handle the sizing automatically.
It is really nice to have a set of your own unique icons. I hope you find them useful. Download them here: http://rocketdock.com/addon/icons/38398
and some new ones...
