Loose ends.

Icon 62 (Network Services)

Yesterday I said I would be be doing the Printer icon tonight. However I am running late today do to the fact that I am in the process of moving over the next week or so. So tonight I am going to cheap out and take care of some lose edges.

A while back we did a series of network icons, now that we are getting closer to the end of the pack I realized that we skipped a few. The first of these is the Network Services icon.
Step 1:

Lets start by copying the Internet icon.

Step 2:

Now I size the globe down and tweak the cable to make it stretch further around the edge of the icon area.
Step 3:

Now we take a copy of the gear from the admin folder and place it in front of the globe.

Step 4:

Now using our reflection techniques I give the gear a new reflection.

Step 5:

Now using the Shadows techniques I give the gear the new shadow.

Finished Icon design.

Well, I still want to get to the printer icon, hopefully we will be able to take care of it tomorrow.

Yes indeed, shaping up nicely.

Of course this is what we have come to expect from Mormegil!

Thanks, Teach.

I cant thank you enough. You have taught me more than I could ever imagined. I have had Corel Draw for quite some time, but never used it until your videos. Now I have fallen in love with it. Every day I cant wait to see the new Icon Of The Day. And the weekends drive me crazy until I download the new Corel Draw For Skinners. I spend a lot of time studying and practicing the things you teach us. Hopefully someday I can give back a portion of what you have given to all of us.

Thanks again, Dave

Well, I got my Corel Graphics Suite 12 in the other day (got the full version for $179 as an existing PSP customer), I have yet to install it but I plan to get to that ASAP, so I'm hoping to take a look at this great series as well as the Corel video series and maybe learn how to create graphics that are maybe 1/1000th as clean as your Paul. Any tips on getting started, anyone?
