Another Quick Two for One

Icon 40 & 41 (WMA & MP3 Files)

Yesterday we did a two for one of Windows Media Player icons; today we are going to polish off a few more of the Music File types. These are both amazingly simple icons to make and we can make them with almost no new elements. So lets do it.
Step 1a:

For both of these icons I start with a copy of the WAV file.
For the WMA file I simply change the color of the page to blue, and change the title to WMA.
I also give the File a new
Reflection because it is blue now

Step 2a:

Now I take the WMP icon that we have used the last  2 days and place it in front of our file.
Putting the 2 elements together to make our finished icon.

Here we have our finished icon image.

Step 1b:

Same as above we copy the WAV file, but this time I only change the title (leave the background black).

Step 2b:

Since MP3's are commonly thought of as the Internet music file type, I copy our globe from the HTML file and place it over the new MP3 file.

Completed icon image.

Love it when we can use elements already made and have them work so well.

Thanks, Teach.
