A 2nd version to suit better with a dock.

Mainly done for practice, so constructive critiques are absolutely welcome ! :)

May serve as a basis for an icon series ^^

have you used 3d effect in Ps cs5
ap-graphik Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2011
No, I think it can be better to use layers instead, with effects that you totally control.

I'm sure you can do something nice with the 3D effect but I don't know it very well...

looks really nice, but the shadow of the "a" is on the wrong side. We can look at the top of the block the A is on, but the shadow suggests the bottom, darker, side of the "a" is visible.
ap-graphik Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
Oh nice ! :) I haven't think about it, thanks :)
I think there should be a shadow though, but maybe smaller, and surely the light on top of the "a" should be bigger.

But not too much because the "a" hasn't got many volumes anyway.
I should also diminish the white line on bottom of the block, I don't know why it appears here ^^
The shadow should be made new too.

Thanks for your critics, now that I think about that I only see it and it's bad ! :D

Alexandre, please tell me what font did you do "a"
and some text effects applied?
ap-graphik Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2010
Cooper STD [link] that comes with Photoshop :)

And yes, only 1 layer for the silver letter "a" with multiple effects.

Better than 'alpha Candy (1)' in my opinion. The lines on the top of the square need to change direction as to present 3D form better.

Other than that these really suit the name well, they have a very candy esque look. Nice n stripy!

Ah I think I know what's wrong now I think you need to change angle on the stripes when they go above that line
