Post here about your concepts, sketches, work in progress, results and 
so on, we'll try to give feedback.

As documentation for creating a cursor theme you can look at the source 
codes for Bluecurve (we still use the icon theme from Bluecurve):

As you can see, we need 4 versions of the theme: normal, inverse (for 
inversed, white on black themes) and left-handed normal and inversed. 
Also, for each theme are defined 3 sizes: 24x24, 36x36 and 48x48.

Also you will see multiple sheets for one size, those contain only the 
succesive frames of a couple of icons which are animated.

With all those said, consider that "Gears" is only a theme proposal and 
it may not make final, so before going into great work publish some 
Also, if you like the theme concept, you can come with some improved, 
Round 2-worthy, Gears graphics for the theme itself.
