This is just one great icon theme. One missing icon I noticed is the KDevelop icon. Kdevelop is an important application of the KDE desktop. Thanks

You've been able to make a lot of new icons in such a short time! They look great!!!

However, I agree with the critics, some of these icons use the same shade of blue and makes things look a little boring and reperitive. I think you should forget about your plans on releasing different variations, there are still tons of icosn to be done (look at the icons included in slick, try to make icons for everythignn that author did) for example something to replace the spinnink flower in Konqueror and a TV card icon, and so many more.

In my opinion you should focus on one set with all the best and most common suggestions you get. This way, you won't need to make different sets, everyoen will already love the first one! You should add different colors to your official set too, you don't have to make everything blue.

Conclusion:

Focus on one set with a combination of the best looking colors and icons for everything in KDE.

Again the colors comments!
Well, i'm a designer, and i will not make simple colour variations!!
When i refer to 'variations' i refer to new concepts.
Examples:
-On any variation i change the designs for folders.
-I will not use exclusively 'blue' or 'yellow' colors.
-I will change the CONCEPT: for the warm icons, it have designs that will have 'warm feels', for the Natural icons i use foliage instead folders and strawberries for internet!! For the Bogart version i tried to make feel as 'old BW cinema'. Maybe i can make the icon sets using very different colors, but... what happens for the Bogart version? If this set (the Noia for KDE) are too blue, i will not thing wath can happens for the Bogart version (entirelly in grey tones)!

Ok, maybe the KDE comunity prefers only one design with more variated colors. There's a lot of persons that comented the 'excessive' using of blue tones.
I will create the new icons with different tones. But there's some issues that will happens:
-Don't say that this icon set it's too many colorist, and reminds you the WIndowsXP style!!
-Don't say that this is a copy of any other iconset!
-I will make the other variations, because they have different designs (i never wiwh to make variations only changing the colors, i did this and i don't like the results). I will not release the Bogart version!!! Sorry for the people that likes the BW designs.


Finally: i like the diversity, the Noia icons are intended to have alternatives with the same designing concepts, not to be a definitive icon set. The Noia icons are created initially for WIndows, and it have only 100 icons. This version (the KDE) it's not really a version, it have more than 400 icons, so it is 75% newly, and i need intensive work to make this. If more than 50% persons prefers different colors on Konkeror buttons, i will make this changes. Thanks

about some poor fools who have never known, what art is! Your icons are good as they are. What I could imagine was meant with the colors: before you came, we didn't have many icon sets, maybe 2 or 3 really good. All of them were blueish, so one could think, all KDE icons are blue (like Mac icons were). So I can understand people want a change (as I also do). As I have written above some days ago, I would really die to see Noia warm and Noia natural on KDE. But this is not a must. Hell, its only a heart wish ;-)

Dear Carlitus, your art is really excellent. But please don't make the mistake to compare KDE and Windows users. They are not really the same ;-)

Thank you for all the time you invested in your work. You know, that you have a new fan community here :-)

Greetings,
Mona

no problem.

never (never) and never i will compare KDE and Windows users. They can be compared, as can be compared Mac to Windows or Mac to Linux users. Really, i don't like to make a 'copy' of winxp icons.

Thanks :)

great! I only have minimal critics: I don't really like the k-menu icon, it reminds me too much of the crystal icon set, and this I had for 3 months... further I would really like a new Mozilla icon (maybe like the Netscape icon, thats really good), and further xmms icon is not that much my style...

I would die to have Noia warm and maybe even Noia natural on KDE also, I really love it :-)

Keep on the good work,
greetings,
Mona

yeah, i have to agree: the xmms icon isn't my favorite, either.

but DANG: 0.5 is fabulous. i still have to use some duplicates to cover all my apps, but you say you'll release an "extended apps" set, so i really look forward to it.

thanks for the icons!

oh! one thing i just noticed: the "shuffle" button on noatun is just a generic K logo. i assume you didn't intend that, and that you would want a special icon for that, yes? hope so.

thanks!

Hi all.
The Noia icons collection (i named this, because it is a collection of 4 different variations, in colors, concepts and designs).
When i finished this set (the 'Noia' set) i will release the 3 remaining sets.
This set is the 'standard' Noia set, in blue tones. Btw, the original Noia release is more entirelly blue that this KDE release.
If you see the icons, you will notice that i used diferent colors for the Applications; the system icons are blue toned (or grey).
The other release will be based on: Warm (red, yellow) tones, Green tones and B/W tones). On any different Noia iconset, the applications will remain with the same design. I will change only the KDE icons and buttons.
So, this is not a EXCLUSIVE SET. I will not change the buttons (or other) colors.
If you wish to have a iconset with different colors (i know, allways blue will bore you), send me propositions to make a new iconset with 'mixed colors'. I will try to make a new icon set (entirelly made using Linux) with svg format, in white designs (for folders, buttons), and usig all possible colors; if you have any idea or you wish to collaborate, send me a mail or put your comment here.
Thanks

Carlitus! Excellent work! The only thing I would add is some color here and there. Maybe only highlights and accents. You did a really fantastic job. Thank You!

Add more colors. e.g. the refresh button could have some green and the stop button could have some red.
