Sharing My Custom MBAM Icon Here...

I've been using this shortcut icon as my MBAM icon for quite some time. It's one of the custom MBAM icons i made for myself with GIMP because i wanted a different-looking MBAM icon to compliment with my other desktop icons.

Later on it comes to my mind that i could share with you about this icon...and so here i am!

I'm not a professional icon-maker, nor did i expertise in using image editing software like Photoshop. Please tell me what you think...<_<

Heh, here is my 'improved' version.

Sadly when I saved it as an .ICO and tried to use it, although it worked it came out very grainy and looked aweful. Must have somthing to do with the image size and the way GIMP saves to .ico.

All I did was alter the colours a bit, added some shadow behind the M, and blurred the M a tiny bit. I also made the background transparent instead of white.

Got bored, so I messed around with it a bit more. Now I really want to try making one from scratch but I've gotta think of some sort of design. How did you go about making that shield in the first place? I'm assuming you used some photos of circuit board as stock and went from there.

I think I might have used a tad too much glow <_<

Thanks 4 the feedback, i think maybe it's time i remake a new MBAM icon, since i agree with you all that the icon looks slightly grainy when converted from png image into icon.

@Insomniac,

To be honest, that shield was actually less of my work. Like i said, i'm not much of a photoshop or GIMP player so my techniques aren't quite sharp.

I had to dig around the web for a satisfactory shield and the version of the shield i found was actually less detailed in its lining and it's blue in color.

So what i've done is that i've added a few more lines, sharpened up the shield a bit, adjusted the gamma/hue of the icon to depict red instead of blue and added some lighting effects to make it looks as though it's basked under the sun.

I had another identical version, only that it's copper in color and i think it's not that nice, so i decided to share the red version here.

Go ahead and modify the icons as much as you like. If you like the original shield that i've found just tell me to post it up here...<_<

Another new MBAM icon, inspired by the posts here and done after an hours or so. This time, i really made it from scratch. No elements of other icons whatsoever. Made this fantastic icon with GIMP again, and the result is super...:rolleyes:

MBAM1.ico

If anyone bothered to ask what the background is, it's actually a matrix rain lol! I've used it as a stock image where i began creating the icon.

Please comment on it! :)
