The last of the "Other" Icons.

Icon 64 (Workgroup)

Well, I spent all day moving so I am quite beat, but luckily there is a pretty simple icon that needs to be done. I'm in luck.

This is the last of the icons in the "Other" section of IconPackager; we will have the satisfaction finishing up anther section. So lets do it.
 
Step 1:

We will start by copying yesterdays "
Entire Network" icon, and removing the globe and cable, as well as the reflections.

Step 2:

Now since this is a "workgroup" I want to ad one more computer. So I copy the front computer, and put a new picture on it. In this case a copy of our globe.

Step 3:

Now I size the new monitor down a bit, and place it behind the two monitors. I also give the new one a bit of
Gloss on its screen.

 
Step 4:

Now we give the monitors a new reflection. I copy the two front most monitors and mirror them for our Reflections.

Step 5:

Using the Interactive Transparency tool, I I fade out the two reflection bitmaps. See the
Reflections Video for more on this.

There we go, one more lose end tied up. I will be doing more moving tomorrow so we will be doing another simple icon tomorrow night as well. Not sure which one yet.
