I dig it!!  Great work!

Next you should make a stylistically-matching button for the 'purchase deluxe version' and vec will have to think about putting them up in place of the current ones ;)

Thanks Newtor, I thought about the same button but somehow glassy or golden for Deluxe. I will give it a try tomorrow.
Thanks for the input.

Well, I was just trying to be helpful.  ::)

Sorry I came across as ungrateful. It's better to jump in with something that may be obvious (but unknown to some) than to say nothing, assuming they already know it.

Interesting take. I like the arrow and the text, but the CD doesn't blend with it very well, maybe the color or sharpness of it, or something, I can't quite put my finger on why it doesn't seem to blend  :-\
I was thinking while looking at it, and wonder what it would be looking like, if the text were on the arrow, and maybe the CD in the background of it.. just an idea in which I hope helps get your artistic flow -- flowing  :)

No big deal, it's almost impossible to write something and know how someone else will read into it and take to it, as compared to how it was actually meant  ;) . I tried to think of that when I was typing it, so it didn't seem as if I was talking "down" to anyone (which I wouldn't normally do unless it was some jerk that really had it coming   :D ) and with that said, I apologize if it appeared in such way.
 It's all good  :)

I agree Masta, I think is the cd perspective, ty. I was just looking to the Tango icon set and I see one much better. I will give it a try.

LOL I knew I've seen that in some place! I guess we could argue "nobody owns the sky". Oh, at least God has IP on it  :P

I made some additions:


I asked to Vanesa, "on which one would you click?" And she pointed "Free Download" with no doubt. I should add she doesn't speak English at all and "Free" or "Purchase" means nothing to her :(

That certainly looks nice comparing to the first idea(s), but I think the stars should go and maybe replaced with something else. The other thing is the red ribbon.. I look at red as sort of a warning light --red stop light, red stop sign, code red :) , Maybe a blue or green one might seem more fitting?

Keep it flowing though, much improvement since the start  8)

I believe it's better to stay away from reds and green as much as possible because there are those who are red/green color blind.  not many but some.
just a thought.

just a thought.
Actually, complete colour blindness and blue-yellow colour vision deficiency are indeed rare (1 in 30000 and 1 in 10000 respectively), but red-green colour vision deficiency is much more common, as in 7 to 10% of males, though much lower in females.
