Hi all,

Just wanted to mention that I've posted a tutorial on creating menu icons at:

I've also provided the source svg file, so check it out if you need to create menu icons in android. Let me know if you like this tutorial, and if you'd like to see more Android icon tutorials.

Cheers

I also took a crack at this, instead using the "filters" in Inkscape analagous to those in Photoshop.

Examples:

I must say, a program like Inkspace is great for beginners. But for those who need to do extensive work, then I have to suggest Photoshop. It does seem a little complicated at the start but once you get to know the GUI and what you can access and how far each part of the program goes, you can really get into it.

I also would like to add if anyone doesn't really like creating icons and other graphics, just PM me; I am sure I will be able to do something for you at no expense (except my time of course ^.^).

@kostmo - Good work, I'd suggest people check this out as well.

@BLAKE.AnRKist - Thanks for the feedback and offering your icon services. I'm sure photoshop is great if you can afford it and I know many people use it to great effect. I'm more of a FOSS fan, but everyone should use the tools they prefer.
