I’m in the middle of drawing some icons for a new Rhino V8 toolbar.
For a better understanding I want to learn from the Rhino icons.
I want to understand why some icons render good, and some not so good.
And what the best approach is.
In this example the quality is not optimal even at the native 48px (view the screenshots at 100%).
In Rhino itself I see exactly the same.
The big picture reveals the reason.
As a test I aligned the several pieces to the grid using InkScape.
I think the quality improved for all sizes:
Some not perfectly grid aligned icons:
Some precise ones:
Means for my own icons that I should draw perfectly grid aligned icons.
The chances for a good rendering are better.
This also means the Rhino icons can be better with no major effort.
A large amount but not really difficult work.
