Wow, a little bit smaller than your others, but looks also great. Desperately waiting for release...

BTW - Happy Birthday!

Yep. My goal with this is to change every single metro icon to fit this style more so they can look great on Docks AND the Win8 Start Screen! Kill 2 birds with one stone! :D

This will look a bit small on docks, so the new icons should be called StartScreen edition :D

Hmm, I don't know. I've tried a few, not too hard to see. Honestly, do you (as a downloader and user) think I should really make this move? A serious question. Maybe I should post a 'Beta' available for anyone to download to tell me what they think regarding if they are good for Dock icons...

Great job as expected.:D My respect goes not only to the result, but also to the lot of work behind it.
One question: Do you have an idea for a generic Win8 modern apps icon? The problem is that Vistart8 displays the modern apps tiles in a ugly way. Would be nice to have a icon which can be used for all modern apps(tiles).

:icondakirby309:
dAKirby309 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you, Peter! :D And it is A LOT of work but I'm enjoying it, I'm about half-way done, so many to do. :)

And by generic apps icon, do you mean just one icon that represents multiple icons? And do you have an image or screenshot of the 'ugly' ViStart stuff? :)
Reply
:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes i mean an icon that can be used for all modern apps to be shown in the startmenu.It should show that it represents a modern app (tile)
I will make a screnshopt tomorrow because Windows8 is on another computer. Have to disconnect/connect a lot of cables to use it.I have only one monitor and other equipment.

what i mean. The icons look extremely simplified, and a little bit squeezed imo.

So you want me to make an icon similar to the green one then? :)

:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I made a new screenie which shows the Zune icons
[link]
What i mean is a icon which can replace all the icons of this kind.It should represent the new apps in a little icon. Difficult, i know.It is not meant to be used for the current versio of Vistart. It is meant to be used for the next generation of Vistart. With your credits of course.

Did u know about the Segoe UI Symbol font ? It provides a lot of Metro Icons :

And about MetroStudio it's a software specialised in making metro icon:

:icondakirby309:
dAKirby309 Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Nope, do you have a download available for the font type?

And I know about MetroStudio, I never got it because last time I checked you had to pay money before you could download it, I might get that program... :) Thanks!

to see the icons in the font :
open word
insert a symbol
go to the Private Use Area and you'll see all the icons

Also, it behaves like text so you can copy it from word to Photoshop, increase the size or change the color. Just don't forget to set the font to Segoe UI Symbol :)

Actually, according to :iconbrebenel-silviu:, the font is Segoe WP, not Segoe UI. Segoe WP is thinner than Segoe UI.

He said it in a critique here: [link]

:iconntim007:
ntim007 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2012
If you're looking for a thin font, then use segoe UI light.
Windows 8 doesn't have Segoe WP... Segoe WP is used in Windows Phones (WP).
Anyway, we were talking about the symbol font which only exists in Segoe UI not the default font

Thanks. :) And apparently I already had the font, so I just replaced it. haha
