Default What To Do?

Hey, guys, here is my question: Say you find an icon pack that you really love and use. However, there simply aren't enough icons in the pack and it hasn't been updated in forever, and probably won't be updated ever again. How can one go about making your own icons to match the pack if that is even possible? And, of course, we are talking about someone with no artist skills. Lol

Thanks

Then you do it the same way a guy with no eyes sees. You don't. I've been writing software for 40 years (and some of what I wrote 35 years ago is still being used). But I can't draw a straight line without a straightedge.

Left-brained people are logical, right-brained people are artistic. The last logician who was an artist (I'm talking about great, not run-of-the-mill - we're all around there) was Leonardo da Vinci, that's how rare it is. Learn programming, learn logic, learn something that needs a dominant left brain, and use that to earn the money to pay right-brained people to draw beautiful things.

You posted this in the right section, sometimes it just takes a while to get an answer.

Take a look at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1108669

And never sell yourself short of art skills.

The first step is getting that noise out of your head so you can jump in and have fun with it.
