[SOLVED] Your Sardi icon creation method...

Erik,

I have some questions about your icon creation.

You use inkscape first and then later tweak the colors by a script, right ? Do any of your scripts alter any geometry of the icon ? Or do they only alter the color ?

How many icons are in a set ? How many different sizes do you need to complete an icon set ?

There is no great rush but it would interesting if there was a tutorial to see what you do when you create them. I've seen many of your tutorials but didn't see one regarding this topic.

mostly I change the look in inkscape - when icon is created I manually make 6 versions of it - Sardi Flexible, Sardi Mono, Sardi, Sardi Flat, Sardi Orb, Sardi Ghost. No scripts as of yet.

Then I have the Sardi-extra icons - those are scripts - they only change the colors.

How many icons are in a set ?

thousands

How many different sizes do you need to complete an icon set ?

check the folders I use

There are tutorials about Sardi
