    Wow these are fantastic icons. Some of the most detailed and intricate I have seen. Nice find!

  2. Ryan Keeter on May 26th, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    I must say, this blog (since subscribing) has given me nothing but absolute motivation to get out and really create some wonderful stuff. Touche on the excellent links, and I don’t know if it is a team that runs this blog, but what great taste!

  3. Pavel Ciorici on May 26th, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    What a huge collection :))

  4. Gis on May 26th, 2008 at 9:18 pm

    I am loving them all! Amazing. DeviantArt is really always a great repository of inspiration and also resources. i always admire the people that works to give fore free or freeware things to others, that can solve the needs of those others :D amazing dedication :)
    And thanks for your wonderful posts dear, always so useful!!

  5. David Hellmann on May 26th, 2008 at 9:44 pm

    nice sets!

  6. firewalker on May 26th, 2008 at 9:49 pm

    Some of those icons are highly detailed in big resolutions but poorly detailed if viewed in small resolutions.

    Overall, it’s fantastic!

  7. John on May 26th, 2008 at 10:29 pm

    It looks like 12)TextEdit and 13)Paper Clip share both the same shortcut….

    Great list though… !

  8. Christefano on May 27th, 2008 at 12:05 am

    These Indiana Jones icons aren’t from deviantART, but I think they’re definitely worth a mention:

  9. Joanna on May 27th, 2008 at 12:41 am

    Did you ask the people that created these if you could use them before you stole them off deviantart ?

  10. P7 on May 27th, 2008 at 1:11 am

    Great picks! The limewire is awesome. Thanks

  11. Ramón on May 27th, 2008 at 1:47 am

    Nice collection!

  12. Amanda on May 27th, 2008 at 1:59 am

    Joanna: They didn’t steal them. They aren’t offering them up for download here, they are simply making note of them and directing you to the artist’s DA page.

  13. John Darren on May 27th, 2008 at 2:19 am

    It’s BEAUTIFUL, you retarded.

  14. Timps on May 27th, 2008 at 5:15 am

    It’s a real shame more of these aren’t available to download from DA, or for sale for commercial use.

    I’ve checked a couple and they are either free site use only or there is literally no download offered, only a single image with a detailed background.

  15. Ankit Sabharwal on May 27th, 2008 at 5:35 am

    oh !! what a collection…each one of these is unique in all respects…thanks a lot…

  16. Tom on May 27th, 2008 at 5:38 am

    Amazing collection. Thanks for your post!

  17. Drupal Museum on May 27th, 2008 at 5:39 am

    Great collection! The Chinese Wind icons are awesome!

  18. Noupe on May 27th, 2008 at 5:39 am

    Hey Everyone,

    Thanks for the awesome feedback and I’m glad many found new icon sets to use. Make sure to drop a comment about your favorite deviantART icon too – I know I can’t list them all, so I’ll need your help for our next deviantART Roundup.

    @Christefano: Thanks for posting the Indiana Jones icons, excellent collection as well!

    @Amanda: Thanks for explaining to Joanna that No one stole anything, we are just highlighting some of the best icon sets available on deviantART.

  19. WadeO on May 27th, 2008 at 7:38 am

    Nice Icon I may use them on my Discount Computer site. Thanks… I really like the under construction one but it is not available for download.

  20. Karinne on May 27th, 2008 at 8:15 am

    This is so funny, I spent almost the entire day today looking for interesting icons for rocketdock and such, and even one in particular for like two hours. Searching the deepest corners of the internet, Finally I settled and check out digg. Of course 40 awesome sets, and even the one I was looking for haha

    so good =P

  25. Patrick Sweeney on May 27th, 2008 at 7:13 pm

    Excellent finds!

    Much better than most of the run of the mill ones I’ve found.

  26. I on May 27th, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    Beautifull or Beautiful :)

  27. fung on May 27th, 2008 at 9:58 pm

  28. Tan The Man on May 27th, 2008 at 11:05 pm

    For some reason, now I feel inadequate.

  29. Ken on May 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Thanks for these great icons. I was looking for i-phone icons and I found them on here. Great! Dugg this post too :)

  30. de on May 28th, 2008 at 1:57 am

    Fantastic set, certainly suitable for the macintosh :)

  31. web pixy on May 28th, 2008 at 3:38 am

    Wow, awesome desktop icons! Some of them will look great on my desktop:) Thanks!

  32. binodc on May 28th, 2008 at 3:40 am

    Nice collection of Icons sets

  33. Clancy on May 28th, 2008 at 3:58 am

    Those are the most 3D, reflective, and colorful icon sets on deviantART. They’re very well done, if that’s the sort of icons you prefer.

    It’s a shame none of the more elegant minimalist sets were included. I’m thinking in particular of *heylove’s work.

  34. Wes on May 28th, 2008 at 5:43 am

    Great stuff! Very inspirational and creative!!!

  35. Michael Flarup on May 28th, 2008 at 5:54 am

    Thanks for featuring my work. There’s a new (and in my opinion better) version of the TextEdit icon on my website:

  36. 2 cents of polarizer on May 28th, 2008 at 6:15 am

    I like Prostor set most, despite the fact that the red color drives many people aggressive.

    Thx 4 sharing it


  37. Fahmishah on May 28th, 2008 at 6:54 am

    thanks for the listing..

  38. Lasha on May 28th, 2008 at 10:22 am

    These are some very impressive icons. It’s great to see the amount of creative effort that goes into the development of these types of things. The Chinese wind icons are pretty appealing to me. =)

  39. Lawrence the Photographer on May 28th, 2008 at 11:20 am

    Wow those are some awesome icons. It makes me want to redesign my wedding photography website.

  40. victorantos on May 28th, 2008 at 2:31 pm

    I want this icons for my personal website.

  41. Noupe on May 29th, 2008 at 5:49 am

    Thanks everybody for your feedback and for all the Diggs that we got :), we appreciate it and we will do our best to get you all the best resources, news and trends in the design sphere.

    I will definitely add all your suggested Icons in our next roundup.

    @victorantos, It is always worth to take a look at the license agreements or even contact the designer directly to take their permission for personal or commercial use.

    @stinky9, The Onibari and iVaizard are one of the best, we didn’t arrange these icons according to any criteria. All icons are just randomly placed here.
    Keep up the good stuff and let me know when you have new icon set so we could share with our readers.

  42. Jason on May 30th, 2008 at 4:47 am

    There are a ton of great icon sets here, great find.

    I would love to feature some of these on
