I’ve been tinkering with Inkscape lately, a free vector drawing tool, and I’m slowly getting more confident with it. I want the 3mension.com look to be up-to-date and web 2.0-ish, so I have to learn how to make those glossy icons with a hint of depth and reflection. I found some icon creation tutorials, and that’s what I’m wading through now.
I might not wait until these icons have been finalized to launch the site. After all, there hasn’t been anything tangible on the 3mension.com front I was able to show for far too long. I can blame the skiing holidays and some changed at my day-job for that, but that doesn’t change the outcome : nothing yet.

Much inspiration here, I’ll post samples as I finish them.
