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

Overall, it’s fantastic!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
