I have released another uncontinued icon set for AmigaOS4 with 256x256 icons onOS4Depot.net.
And all that could have been...

Looks nice!

I gotta ask, what do you use to create the icons? Not just software but methodology?

Thank you very much! I'm downloading right now..

But why are they abandoned? They had not been released before as far as I am aware of.

Are you working on a new Iconset?

best regards!

@coldacid

I use Corel Photopaint for the icons. The methodology is quite complex, based on layers - I should write a book about it

@Amigo1

The idea was to have a lighter design for OS 4.2 which does not fit with the icons you will find in the archive. Another point was that the icons take to long to load and scale on older Amigas.

Since more or less five years I am working on a new icon set featuring a more leaner and cleaner design. The key elements and philosophy of this icon set were already used for the OS 3.14 glowicons.

Write that book and you're guaranteed a purchase from me.

Your artistry, and long work on creating beautiful icon sets for our Amiga computers is very much appreciated. I think I can speak for all of us reading this thread, by saying a very sincere "THANK YOU!"
