The first of 6 icons I've done for the project Erebus that Boris_Spider and I are working on.
This is my first post so I put up every button made. Not sure if all are useable. I'll let you decide.
The project is based almost entirely on skeleton units so I created images of what hopefully appear to be actual bones. In this case, scapula, clavicles and a sacrum. It took me about 20 hours in PaintShop Pro to make these. The hand was the hardest.
Icons with the bright purple are action icons. This first one is going to represent an Armor Type, so it just has a simple dark glow behind it.

Update: 1/24/10 Since I'm removing the highlights from the Command Buttons, and this is intended as an Armor Type, I just modified the bg a little more. I know it's a lot like the Stop Button, but these are part of a themed group.

Update: 1/26/10 Clarified the bone edges and improved contrast as requested. The STOP button is updated as well, but I'll have to get the other two done tomorrow. Added the Upgrade Button back in the group.
Update: 1/27/10 Added the ATT button.
Update: 2/5/10 Added Erebus to the keywords. This is the last update.

Keywords:
Erebus, Armor, bone, purple, upgrade.

    Thanks! The positive feedback is encouraging. They needed improvement though and this is the progression based on other users and Pyra's suggestions...

    another thing i noticed, the positioning of the actual bones is a bit to close to the top, move it down a bit to make it more centered.
