Re: go-home echo icon concept

I folowed the guidlines and there is said: "The shadow is formed by lines from the isometric grid. It is appears primarily behind the object; as well as a bit in front of and under the object. Do not to use black, as it is too harsh and does not scale well...dark gray is acceptable."

Of course not *solid* black. I think the intention is to use black with a degree of transparency, which look gray, at least this is what the other icon sets (for example Tango) do.

Do you think, that using black with transparency would be better than using dark-grey without transparency (save for the blur effect which adds transparency, of course)?

Definitely the shadow must have transparency, be it transparent black or transparent dark gray as the icon can be shown against a colored or textured background and it will look smooth only with transparency.

And yes, it would be good to document the certain values on wiki. But we must first decide which ones are the best...

The eternal question (see the "Artwork conversation" thread): who has the power to define those values? We have to wait for Diana?
