Great prizes, new contest every month!


I have some knowledge of a few graphic manipulation programs and use whatever gets the job done.
For the most part I use Corel PaintShop Pro to create images.
Some images I create with 3D modeling software.
I convert my images to icons in IcoFX and RealWorld Icon Editor.

I am always willing to share my knowledge.
If you have a problem ask if I may be able to help.
(There is no harm in asking.)
If I can't help, maybe I know someone who can!

  • Unless designated otherwise my sets are free to use for your personal use only.
  • You may not under any circumstances list them for sale anywhere.
  • Commercial licenses for my icons start at $3.00 USD. Ask me for details if you are interested.

Registered users are given a default user icon.
You can change the user icon associated with your account.

Sirea has a video tutorial if you would like to create your own user icon.

Once you have created a new quality user icon upload it to your contact card section on your profile page and wait for approval of your new user icon.

Please see rw-designer profile guidelines:


Icons are used in multiple places on the rw-designer web site and therefore there are strict rules on how a user icon may look like. Currently, user icons are used in the comments section of many pages and on icon and cursor set pages.

User icons are images that can be uploaded from your profile page and they must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Profile icons must be in PNG format with transparent background.
  • Size of the uploaded picture must be exactly 150x200 pixels.
  • The uploaded picture must be an illustration of yourself, a traced photo. The head must occupy at least 50% of the space. Please fill as much of the available space as possible, do not leave any empty space above your head.
  • User icon must be approved by administrators before it is displayed to other users.

If the uploaded image is not approved, it will be deleted by administrators.

They also said that you need layers in your profile icon. I'm an exception.
I accidentally did NOT use layers in any of my pictures.
And my pictures were approved.
Well, except my first one.

Did you stop sending out messages to new users?
Why? :-(

user icon cdl contributing user on October 13th 2017

Yes, I have pretty much stopped welcoming new members individually as the effort is rather time consuming. If possible I would like to resume this effort sometime in the near future.

Sorry new members.

Only problem is that I don't create cursors, I create icons.
