    This icon confused the hell out of Preview.app...although the icon program I wrote was able to recognize it just fine
    But yeah, Mac uses a different format called .icns

    On a semi-related note, this exists: http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=x ... ra_id=6838
    Dunno who the guy that made it is, though.

    E] Totally using this now, dunno why I ignored it for so long.

    This is completely useless to us non-mac people.

    Re: Pesterchum Desktop icon

    I ended up making a few myself

    Preview on my computer though I keep my icons small. Pesterchum is actually a special Adium alteration downloaded here: http://www.adiumxtras.com/index.php?a=x ... ra_id=6838 though I put in the icon. I used Candybar for the Mac icons for Finder which is now the Complete Bullshit icon and then the folders.

    Dave contains:
    Red Folder
    Complete Bullshit
    Hephaestus
    Pesterchum

    http://www.socialfist.com/davemacicons.zip - Mac icons zip
    http://www.socialfist.com/davewindowsicons.zip - Windows icons zip

    If there is anything I forgot I for Dave, link me in a PM and I will make and change it when possible.
    If you would like other desktop icons ala John, Jade or Rose, PM me to alert me of the desire.

    I think if you're willing to make the John, Rose, and Jade icons for individuals you should post them for everybody. I mean if you're going to make them anyway, why not? I'd sure as hell use them. I'm already using your Dave icons.

    I am working on them for everyone. I just wanted to see that there was an interest which there is. Working on the Rose stuff now. Ironically a lot more work intensive with the pixels and patterns.

    Re: Pesterchum Desktop icon

    Like I said in the last Fanart page where this all happened, I'm extremely tempted to download Chrome, Safari, and Opera and apply the kids' respective icons to each (and Firefox).

    For reference,
    John = Chrome
    Jade = Firefox (Furry persuasion)
    Dave = Safari (Apple)
    Rose = Opera (referencing her violinist nature)


    Basically all that to say I would indeed be interested!

    Thanks for making these! A captchalogue card or SBURB themed icons would be cool too.

    Re: Pesterchum Desktop icon

    I just realized, a smart person would just make the icons by cutting them out with photoshop instead of making them pixel by pixel in Illustrator.

    Ehh, comes out better doing it all by hand though.

    In a bizarre twist of fate, it is I who is commenting on how fitting someone's avatar is to their post.

    Re: Pesterchum Desktop icon

    The twist is that it started fitting after I started using it. I was so happy with the old BipartisanBread avatar. Sad Zendorsky is breeding sadness.

    Re: Pesterchum Desktop icon

    Not in the mood to mess with icons for preview right now - a bit tired as it is. I did finish the Rose icon pack though.

    Containing
    Homestuck Spirograph
    Homestuck logo
    Notepad
    Another Pesterchum
    Cetus
    Finder


    windows: http://www.socialfist.com/rosewindows.zip
    mac: http://www.socialfist.com/rosemac.zip

    Enjoy!

    Also John is probably next since Jade might take a bit and then any additional requests.

    Additional requests currently include
    Captchalog cards (of varying colors) Cards
    Sburb icons (need references, more clarity)
    etc

    I meant the spirograph and house/cursor icon, which you already included graciously.

    I'm thinking about taking a old Windows 98 or something virtual machine (Maybe even XP) and changing it to look like one of the kids' desktop.

    Ah, then I totally meant to do that.

    Also, currently working on homework for school (work breakdown schedule) but after that and site design I plan on iconing some more.

    Also I am going to look into making a trashcan icon with variations. Possibly Hearts Boxcar?

    Thats all I did.
    screencap and a generous use of the magic wand with a little editing.
    I was planning on doing a bunch as well, but now you have it covered, Ill just borrow yours heheh.

    Unfortunate fact: Win98 is a huge pain bluh bluh to get working in a VM. You first have to sort of slipstream an installation (not trivial, took me a few hours to get right the second time I did it (after forgetting that I'd done it once before), although I did save the now-functional boot floppy image I used to do it), and then you have to get some random VESA drivers off of the internet (I gave up at this point), or else the graphics will be slow as all hell, to the point of unusability.

    Oh yeah, and then there's the fact that Win98 doesn't properly idle on a CPU, so it tends to consume CPU constantly unless you install some other random drivers.
