I don't get why people charge to make icons. It's not like she owns the images she uses. Hmm.
How much are they? I'm curious now lol.

/sorry this doesn't help your request much haha

Actually, I checked out her examples here, and it seems she makes icons using people's pictures.

But I would be interested into knowing how much money she's asking.

she doesn't charge that much, actually. not sure the exact amount, though.

i'm actually thinking about selling my stuff. i need money :/ and if people would pay for it why not? hehe.

But...she's charging for it. That probably violates the terms of use on almost all of the fonts and brushes she uses. Aside from that, you could request something in the same style at a number of icon comms and get a result like it for free. TBH I find what she's doing to be unethical.

You could even google making them yourself. they're fairly simple. A few brushes and patterns over an image and some tinkering with the colour and blend modes. This style was HUGE on forum sigs about 4 years ago. There are a lot of tutorials out there for it.

doing the same style is a BIG no no in these types of icons. so that's a big HALE NO i won't try to duplicate.

people who make these types of icons are VERY explicit when it comes to their stuff.

The thing is that they have no reason to be. She didn't invent the style. She hasn't innovated at all. It's something that I was writing tuts for myself about 4 years back. The icon type is something of a modern classic.

That's one reason that I'm a little O_o that she's charging for it. Beyond the idea of charging for icons, I'm put off by charging for icons that aren't originally her idea.

She's also using fonts (and possibly brushes) made by other people. She's asking you to put money in her pocket for the work that someone else has done...and she doesn't intend to pay them for.

good points but i never get to request from her. i'm always too late. so this is the only way of getting anything.
