Pidgin icon, take 2 by daj Pidgin icon, take 2 by daj
I took a different approach this time. I like it a lot better now.

EDIT: The image is blurry, but if I click "Download" it's crisp. Hmm...

EDIT 2: The icon files (PNG) & source SVGs are now available to download at GNOME-Look [link]

Hi daj!
I love this icon. I used it in an internal mockup I made for work. I hope you don't mind :p
I've posted it on dA here.

Thanks for making this excellent icon!

Any plans to make this available elsewhere. It looks great, but I haven't been able to connect to GNOME-Look for a little while.
Great job, I've seen the .svg and is amazing

That is an awesome icon. Looks good on my Object Dock.
HAH, beautiful. Faving this. I once tried to do a similar high resolution icon or rather a logo for my band. I wanted a cat chewing on a jack cable. (Because the band is called 'The Cat Ate The Wires';) It didn't come anything. Looked more like a hamster xD .
Heh, thanks for the comment + fav :D
Yeah, Inkscape!
Very nice. Some bugs and memory problems, though. Exporting also sometimes take more than 5 minutes if I have lots of blurred paths.

But it is still the best free vector program I know.

Anyhow, I've tried Adobe Illustrator when I was at school. The user interface is better but I haven't been able to grab my hands on the new version. Anyone has been trying to compare the two?

Btw, this one looks much better AJ.
It's been a few years, but when I was in high school I did a co-op semester at print shop/graphic design place. I had to use AI for a couple of things and while it was definitely faster than Inkscape in terms of rendering & UI response, I found the tools and workflow much more convoluted. Usually after a few days of using a program I can get used to all the main functions but not with Illustrator - I think I ended up working with Inkscape and then just tweaking it in AI for printing.

But like I said that was years ago and I didn't compare the two in-depth. A lot has probably changed since then.

Thanks for the comment :)
Thanks. Yes, Inkscape is my weapon of choice. By far the best vector editor I've ever used (even though complex images slow it down).
