New icon! I <3 it!

Modified. Old icon with dull, ire-invoking background removed for reasons of transparency (revealing now poor sub-pixel auto-selection)...

But I'm glad you like it, that means I'm heading the right direction with this change ;)

The edges still come up a teensy bit too sharp, and there's a bit of a border around him. Perhaps you could run the blur tool over the edges just to smooth it out?

I had to do redo his hair with a 1-pixel pencil, up my magic selection tool to a tolerance of 55, and retrace his shoulders manually after a blur, but I have to admit, he looks much better.

Thanks!

I love what you've done. He looks great now. I usually end up retouching half the damn icon after a blur (like this one <----- where I ended up adding a whole new unblurred layer to add extra depth), but it's worth it.

(although, admittedly, I got a new LCD monitor recently, which makes stuff look a lot more sharper - I haven't quite gotten used to it yet)

Don't you just love it? If you recall, I recently traded my 22" NEC for a widescreen LCD. It does indeed take some getting use to. I feel I've lost a lot of real estate, but the clarity makes me feel like a recovered alcoholic.
