    I tried it on the HomeHD theme and the icons got smaller.

    Just doubling the size of the image will make it appear pixelated. You'll need to actually get the original artist to render/ create the artwork at 4x the resolution.

    A rule of thumb is that you can make an SD image from an HD one, but not the other way around.
