Shadow Dock by hotiron Shadow Dock by hotiron
This is a dark, grunge-like mod (the grunge comes from an overlay of my grunge wallpaper [link]) onto my old plastique [link] dock from last year (originally inspired by IconFactory's sublime Somatic Rebirth [link] overall style and indicators like the great ~intemperie's LGance [link] :cries:) to go with my recent Startup Sequence wall [link] and new dark desktop fetish. Flashlight in the preview is from Adventure Icons by ~wilkolak3dh [link]

Is it possible to get the PNGs so I can convert it to XWD 2.0.2. :)

The resources are in the download but the download is a Mac dmg mountable image file so if you're on Windows I can imagine this is difficult to access. Sorry about that. But you're welcome to port it over, I have uploaded a ZIP of the resources here [link] for you. Post a link if you release it, I'd love to see it.

They are a dark/transparent mod of the original blue stack icons. I ZIPPED one here [link] for you if you want to try it out on your dock. I'll release it soon probably.

congrats on giving everybody credit for pieces in the picture. Mostly, items are added and no clue as to who or where they came from but you make it very easy to follow. Thank you.

Thanks for commenting on it, I was real pleased with it. I spent a lot of time with the grunge overlay effect, feathering it off around the edges to make it seem like the middle of the dock was being illuminated and the edges were in shadow. That's where the name comes from. The preview is actually a screen shot (here's the un-retouched version [link]). I changed my wall to have this foggy light pyramid on it with a lot of grain and glow and transparency then I made a folder and changed it's icon and then grabbed the screen. I got the idea playing with a "movie night" screen shot concept that I haven't finished yet (here's the concept [link]). It's actually a dumb way to make a preview, just extra work, but I'm bored late at night.
