My Little Safari by ParallaxMLP My Little Safari by ParallaxMLP
Holy shit... I am so sick of the Safari icon after trying to vector this. I should've just cheated and copied it from the web or something. But no, I sat there and recreated the whole thing from scratch(afterthought edit: EXCEPT the maps. There is freely available source art for that insanity online. I built these not-quite recognisable continents from those, which was slightly less painful than picking up an atlas, haha). Derp. *[Hatred/grudging respect for whoever designed it]*

This is why it doesn't look quite the same as the original (I don't think the landmass in the compass face is very recognisable... call it a stab in the dark at Equestria's geography, heh), and it also lacks the little loop/chain ring at the top of the 'compass'. There's another reason for that, though; it was making the icon look too small, so I lopped it off to have room to make the rest bigger :D

ANYWAY - here we are! Safari. At last. I guess we could just call her Safari, but I'm open to suggestions.

Windows icon!

Mac icon!

Many thanks to :icontychovhargon: for the suggestion on why Mac icons were coming out over-saturated. (if you're reading, I can't get that solution to work, haha, but I think I've found a way round it now I know what the problem was!)

How did you do the smooth shading of the metal rim?
Oh, just in case you still need a name suggestion:

Globie ('cause the map)
Hyperlink (safari on the web?)

Thanks for looking! The metal rim involved many overlaid circles of varying shades, offset from center and blended together (blurred edges). This one's got a name now, she's Saffire in the comics:…

could you do an MS paint or Snipping tool pony? heck you probably don't have snip... it's useful though!

You should make a google chrome icon next. Very nice work by the way I can't handle vectors that much.

I'm using Safari on Windows to send this comment.

I'd call that pony one of the following:
Internet Nomad
Digital Atlas
World Browser
