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

  • Ryan Keeter, 26 May 2008

    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!

  • Pavel Ciorici, 26 May 2008

    What a huge collection :))

  • Gis, 26 May 2008

    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!!

  • David Hellmann, 26 May 2008

    nice sets!

  • firewalker, 26 May 2008

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

    Overall, it’s fantastic!

  • John, 26 May 2008

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

    Great list though… !

  • Christefano, 27 May 2008

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

  • Joanna, 27 May 2008

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

  • P7, 27 May 2008

    Great picks! The limewire is awesome. Thanks

  • Ramón, 27 May 2008

    Nice collection!

  • Amanda, 27 May 2008

    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.

  • John Darren, 27 May 2008

    It’s BEAUTIFUL, you retarded.

  • Timps, 27 May 2008

    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.

  • Ankit Sabharwal, 27 May 2008

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

  • Tom, 27 May 2008

    Amazing collection. Thanks for your post!

  • Drupal Museum, 27 May 2008

    Great collection! The Chinese Wind icons are awesome!

  • Noupe, 27 May 2008

    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.

  • WadeO, 27 May 2008

    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.

  • Eric, 27 May 2008

    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

  • Patrick Sweeney, 27 May 2008

    Excellent finds!

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

  • Tan The Man, 27 May 2008

    For some reason, now I feel inadequate.

  • Ken, 28 May 2008

  • de, 28 May 2008

    Fantastic set, certainly suitable for the macintosh :)

  • web pixy, 28 May 2008

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

  • binodc, 28 May 2008

    Nice collection of Icons sets

  • Clancy, 28 May 2008

    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.

  • Wes, 28 May 2008

    Great stuff! Very inspirational and creative!!!

  • Michael Flarup, 28 May 2008

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

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

    Thx 4 sharing it


  • Fahmishah, 28 May 2008

    thanks for the listing..

  • Lasha, 28 May 2008

    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. =)

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

  • victorantos, 28 May 2008

    I want this icons for my personal website.

  • Noupe, 29 May 2008

    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.

  • Jason, 30 May 2008
