After long time i have take the decision to work another time on the DarkGlass.

windows style like "Sweet Darkness"

good to see you have heeded my comments =) the icons are somewhat better now.
me, I suck at 3d, but could you post the 3d source files so I can play with them? thanks :)
about the "fresnel effect" (you talking about the reflected cloudy texture right), I'd say it looks a bit superfluous and amateurish... do you think it would be possible to use clear glass everywhere, like in the front face of the gear icon? maybe you should use some other lightning environment to get a cooler reflection... like, maybe, inside a room with a window (see vista's screen icon).

basically what I'm hoping to see is the Crystal Project icons, except translucent and 3d.

and they are still too blue :p

good work, keep it up.

So...first: the fresnel effect
is not a refess, but is an angle
of the water, glass etc where you
see transparent or glossy.

the cloudy effect now hehe is not cloudy
for now, is a screenShot of AgeOfConan ^_^
whiht water and a boat.
If i find a good interna image for
my image i can try to use.

This looks awesome!
This will be even better than oxygen!
I really love the glassy black folders.
I don't know how will it work in smaller sizes...buy I use big icons anyway.

The home icon and the device icons don't look as good. Home icon would be better if only the roof was transparent and the device icons need some work.
But anyways, cool icons!

The quality level is veeery good!
The only thing i want to tell you is to try to use more color(s)... i know the glass must be... transparent, of course, but icons are meant to be used more at 32x32 than 256x256 (that's just a dimensional example).
So in "normal use" the risk is to have a lot of very-similar dark icons, and this may be a negative point for your set usability.

Anyway...very good work!!! :)

it's ok, i think on put the object
that are now inside folder, to stay in front
of folder.
And control low pixel effect.

Ok i have do some changes on the icons,
in the color and in the perpective.
i do not turn the icons perfectly in front
because the glass have a fresnel effect
and in front is totally clear
And...wow...they are so much to do.

not bad at all :)
a bit too muddy and too blue. you've also gone overboard with details like the "Linux" label on the screen, or the red light on the CD drive.
reflections and translucency are good, but they work best with minimalist designs ;)
on that note... since you're modeling the icons in 3D it would be easy to change the perspective so they face the screen directly. would make them more sober, while retaining the funky look.

for now I'm not volunteering to be the packager, but you're off a good start =)

in any case, kudos for bringing new stuff to the table...

WOW! What an excellent idea for icons! I'm sure a lot of people would love to help but they don't know how. What program did you use? Can you make a step by step tutorial so the rest of us not-so-gifted artists can start making more icons like these? I'm sure I can find the time to make a few of these if only I knew how to. A tutorial for dummies would be awesome! Keep up the great work!!! yeeeehaaaaaa! :-D

oh..aemmm thankyou, i did not think this icons do this entusiasm.
And for a tutorial, so you need to
know how to use a 3D program, how to use
a rendering engine for the 3D program,
how to use well Gimp or photoshop or similar application, and ok you have do a 3d image. I think there is much people better skilled than me for do this tutorial.
For the icon set need a script for to do
smallest images from a 256 pixel icon
or you need to do All the images in all format. The last is my probem.. i not have the know-how for the scripts -_-.
