    Photoshop have a tool Dodge and tool Burn. I mean you have to make the line darker by using Burn tool (burning the line).

    You seem to apply much more of "filtered" texture opposed to making the texture VERY bold and almost pixelated, which in turn translates to your icons being a bit blurry rather than having solid cartoonish effect you want to aim for.
    However, it's a process of learning. I've myself used to "overtexturize" my icons in the past, as seen particularly on these:

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    And then you just, with time, learn to adapt and follow the rule that less is, really, more.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    In short, strong definition and sharp render of shadows and light impacts goes a long way, and if you need a hand in finding adequate tutorials or examples to practice both of these, I'll gladly share a link or two.
