Suggestion Box

Calling all suggestions!

I'm interested to know what topics of icons and/or bases you'd most like to see here. You can be as broad or as specific as you'd like. Personally, I'd prefer topics that apply to "stock photography" rather than celebrities or movies, but feel free to include those in your replies.

Looking forward to everyone's responses!

I'm not sure how many of you out there create icons yourself, or participate in icontests, but I have a small request.

A community called themed_icons may close because of a lack of participation. This would be a real shame because the contests in this particular community are well run, thought out, and generally provide good topics to jump-start icon makers and help them create quality work. The moderator is a bit discouraged by the lack of votes and is not asking for more participants, but would welcome them, of course.

Perhaps some of you could visit the community and offer if not your own creations then your votes to the weekly contests. It would help keep a good community up and running.

themed_icons thanks you!

I was inspired by all of shutterbug12's beautiful bases, so I decided to do some of my own. I was inspired to choose bridges for this base icon set after the train trip to NYC last week, where we crossed a number of beautiful (and not so beautiful) bridges.

Most of these I think are lovely enough to use as icons themselves, but since they are essentially bases, feel free to modify at will. There are 80 bases of all types of bridges from small footbridges to large steel structures from all over the globe, so there is something for everybody. Enjoy!
