I have started work on a new set of wide icons which you can see a preview of below...

The theme is called Glass-Icon and I will be making icons for the most popular TV shows and then starting work on movies and games.

Unfortunetly I still dont have FTP access on my XBox so I have edited a Media blade preview with my icons so the size may be off a tad since I had to resize by hand to fit the media preview image but they will be correct size from the original icons Im making....

Good work! But if you don't mind would you share the background layer and the front layer. Then other peoples could help you out with makeing them.

Unfortunetly I cant since Im not using a front or back...

Im using custom banners and my own custom made banners and then applying a plugin to the image to create the glass effect without the need of creating a layer using opacity to get the glass effect.

So these are real quick once I have done the banners so if people would like to help out they can make a custom banner/icon and I will do the rest or if you guys have Photoshop CS2 you can get the plugin im using which is Alien Skin Eye Candy 5: Impact

Banner Dimensions:

446x73 px

or if you have a request just post here and I will see what I can do if I have not done it already... I will update this list as and when I make them and once I feel I have enough I will release.

Glass-Icon:

American Chopper
Battlestar Galactica
Dead-Zone
Desperate Housewives
Friends
Joey
Lost
OC
Stargate Atlantis
Stargate SG-1
The Sopranos

nice looking work, will fit like a glove in mc360..

but please do NOT do more work on this, a new way of implementing this in xbmc is on its way, no need to do different themed icons..

Things will change as soon as xbmc 2.0 is out, then new stuff will be developed.

I have been working on these but still have lots of shows to do...

If its not in the image then Im either working on a banner since I couldnt find a nice one or I have forgot about the show.
So please just post what TV shows you would like.

any chance of getting a photoshop template for these?

my x-men/batman/spiderman/duckman animated collections need logos jester.gif


-edit-
sorry, i just read that your using a different method of making them, if your willing to post a few of the original files (your exact output), we could easily make a photoshop layer for use as a template. (the "That 70's Show" icon you've got would be preaty damned easy to work with)

Ok I have put the template the original 70s show banner and the 70s show icon in a rar file...

The template has text in correct position and drop shadow on layer 2 which is where the correct sized icon goes.

Im not sure if your be able to make the layers needed since the image its self is changed using plugins not using layers.

In total the image has about 4 plugins rolled into 1 applied to it... Anyways good luck making a layered template Im gonna keep making them using the plugin because it has given the best look.

Right-o.

This template isn't EXACT, but its preaty damned close. I made 2 attempts, one template was made by disecting TOTAL's button and it makes minimal usage of any photoshop effects. The other template is done entirely in photoshop effects and is nearly identical.
