    That's cool. Paths? I need to start using them again.The only real problem I see is the reflection, you can't see the open flap or the dripping wax.

    Shewt, my screen's brightness is low with higher contrast, so I can see lighter stuff. Stupid thing doesn't just have a default setting, you have to do it all by hand.
    You can't even see it on the black bg?

    And yes, mostly path work.

    The Icon design is very good but I have two minor demands :p
    Firstly I would love to see a more 16th century version envelope when the wax would be more fitting than nowadays. So that means no white blank paper (maybe also add hints of a letter inside).
    Secondly I Suggest you either render ist larger or do it in inkscape as you have many diagonal lines which just look poor. You would have to bump AA up to 16 for them to look smooth and I believe you cannot do that in GIMP. One of the downsides to pixel art.

    The reflection should be contiguous with the bottom all the way. As it is, the left corner doesn't appear to be resting on the reflective surface. And the envelope isn't in a position where we could believe in a delicate balance on the other corner.

    Signed: the geometry nazi :)

    Lol, alright, thanks guys.
    The reflection was a quick thing (because I love reflections) and I didn't bother redesigning the reflection (it should be showing the underside of the flap and the back of the envelope since its angled backward a bit. Instead its just a duplicate of the image itself.)

    @vT, I like the idea of adding a letter in there, would look really good...And I'm trying to get the hang of inkscape, but the tools are so different from what I'm used to, I'm finding it difficult.

    Thanks for the cc guys.
