    The glows might look off, but I'm pretty sure they're not. I made it by making a rectangle behind it and adding a glow. The two glows are connected, so they should be at the same level.

    It's not the glow that's off it's the actual ? On the right side I can see that it's like 1 px lower

    Oops, I didn't really understand you the first time.

    I'll fix that when I have the time.

    Hi IPM@NIO ! I prefer the cautionsettings, and from the Appstore the nuclear one

    The metallic part is really good.

    And further, the before - after Background of the magical-mystical theme... and the fluorescent icon style.
    Hope you save it before you continue. Nice one!!

    Default "Take that, reverse it, thank you."
    I'm going to suggest you do exactly the opposite of what you're doing. Use the frame as the icon designation. In the window make it look like it's an electrical gage.

    Like THIS!

    Have the needles in different positions. And then put it on a background that makes it look like old machinery or a radio. Mix and match between square and circle dials. Give them a little wear so the icons look like they're aged. You could make it look like a little light bulb is showing through the bottom of the window in front of the dial.

    Thank your for the tips. For now I think I will go with the mystical theme, but have saves the psd's for the other icons incase I want to go back later.

    Great idea, but its not really my style. And usually the most important part of the icon is around the middle or upper part of the middle, so that might cover up some important parts of the icons.

    Thank you everyone for your tips. I have decided to follow through with the mystical theme. I'll work on it for a week or so then start a preview thread.

    Maybe in the months to come I'll come back to some of these great ideas.

    *UPDATE*

    Thanks again for all the help! I've decided to start the preview thread a little early. Here it is:
