UPDATE #1: Here's a shot of a few of my favorites from the set in progress [link] and the complete set [link]
I recently discovered the very cool Aluminum Etched PrySpective Mac replacement folder icon set [link]
but could not find a blue or aqua version. I always loved Pry and Aquave and this seems like the perfect marriage. So I started combining an aqua mod of the DIY kit base folders with glyphs and really liked it. Vibestar's DIY kit is awesome and the Ciment glyphs scale to fit well. This is what it's looking like at the moment. It's all based on the PrySpective DIY kit [link]
from Vibestar [link]
and the Ciment Leopard glyphs resources by the great Laurent Baumann [link]
for a new more modern look. It needs a lot of work but I thought I'd post a preview download of four early samples and see if there was any interest in a full set some day. It's just the user, utilities, system, generic, and smart folders in all size PNGs from 512px to 16px plus ICNS and an icontainer. I re-made the 16px folder from scratch to stand out better in a list view, I bumped up the borders and pulled back the top flap to give it some differentiation. What do you think?
CREDITS: All credit must go first to Vibestar for the excellent PrySpective DIY kit [link] and the great Jonas Rask for his original Pry DIY kit [link] and of course Monsieur Laurent Baumann for his Ciment glyphs [link] and other Aquave resources. There is very little of my own work in this WIP preview, my contribution being the aqua mod of the PrySpective DIY base folders, 16px icon size, and the combination, lighting, grain, and shading associated with marrying other artist's base folders with other artist's glyphs.
