Smoothness is the key to perfect cursors and icons.
Artistic Indicators Icons
This time, I have created a set of 17 cursor roles, not as cursors, but as icon files. Those icon files representing cursor roles are in multiple resolution. All the 17 cursors in this set uses the standard Windows appearance and are white cursors.
The software that I have used to create those cursor icons is RealWorld Icon Editor.
When I designed those cursors, I first designed them using the top resolution of 256x256 pixels and then created the other cursor icon resolution based on the original version of each of the icons I created.
The reason why I have named this cursor icon set as "Artistic Indicators" is because those icons are not proper .cur or .ani files and are useful for artistic purposes such as inserting art images in a Word Processor or simply used as icons to symbolize a folder on your hard drive. Cursor art is useful for that. Since those icons are just simply icon images, there are no hotspots on any of the cursors because they are vector images rather than cursor files.
