The black_green theme began life on 5th March 2012, and the image you see above is actually the 3rd incarnation. Version 1 and version 2 looked like this.
For version 3, I wanted to create a totally new set of icons whilst still retaining the overall idea of version 2. To do this, I decided to create and render a set of icons in Cinema4D, rather than just use Photoshop, as it would give a more polished feel and make it easier for me to animate the icons when the time came.
Another benefit of using a 3D package such as Cinema4D is once the hard work of creating the icon is complete, I can then make a variation of the theme just by changing a few elements in the scene like the camera position or lighting.
