Hand-drawn Status

Submitted By Kathryn (coerul)


To go with my Hand-drawn Service Icons. Reversion found here.

They look a little funky sized down, but a lot of people prefer the 16x16 status icons to anything much bigger. So here you go. :3

Looks good with:
Notebook Contact List Style
Pushpin Message Style
Hand-drawn Service Icons
Hand-drawn Dock Icon


2-19-07: Added "chalk" and "color" versions. Also changed the typing icon to be more recognizable at a glance. xD I also misspelled "unknown" in the preview images. I also spelled it "uknown" on the photoshop layers. I must have trouble typing that word.

Cool, just oozing creativity.

# by iGabe on 02/15/07 at 18:39:46

Very classy.

# by drock on 02/16/07 at 15:54:52

I like the style a lot, and they do look really good with the notebook contact list. Only thing is, I am not fond of the typing icon. The meaning is not very clear, and it looks a lot like away at a glance. I feel like maybe a "dot dot dot" would work better, in the style of the exclamation point.

# by coerul on 02/18/07 at 18:38:22

A "..." wouldn't be very visible, I don't think. The way I figure it, you don't see the typing icon for very long, so I just put a scribble there. I'm not particularly fond of that one myself but I didn't know what else to make it. I'll try to think of a good alternative.

# by br0seph on 02/18/07 at 02:38:59

could we possibly get a white version for contact lists with dark backgrounds??

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/20/07 at 01:33:23

Okay...maybe you were right about the colored ones.

# by coerul on 02/20/07 at 01:35:29

Exactly. xD But at least they're there if anyone wants them.

# by BlackandWhitePenguin on 02/20/07 at 01:36:44

The chalk one are very nice, and I like the new typing icon.

# by yourspleenfell on 02/20/07 at 02:44:23

I actually like the color ones. I just think they would look better if they were filled in with white.

It would be sweet if you made a set of emoticons as well XD

# by coerul on 02/20/07 at 02:47:15

Blargh! I knew I forgot to do something when I made those! Dx

Oh well, they do show up on dark and light backgrounds regardless. Kind of a "colored chalk" effect, if you will. :3

# by yourspleenfell on 02/20/07 at 03:12:07

Haha. I was going to try to color them in white for my own use, but I decided that it should be up to you if they get filled or not.

Yeah. I'm using them right now. They look surprisingly snazzy with my contact list.

# by Junpei on 02/20/07 at 06:51:00

Really cool idea! I like the Colored and Chalk versions, works well with my themes.

# by UnknownLoveSong on 02/23/07 at 17:46:52

Very nice. I second that you should consider making emoticons!

# by BlackVariant on 02/25/07 at 22:04:54

I'm not able to open this one, and yes I did right click and selected Stuffit to open the file. Strange, I'm able to open the service icons...

# by coerul on 02/25/07 at 22:07:01

Works fine for me. o.0;

Try redownloading them. Otherwise I'm afraid I can't be much help. .__.;

# by BlackVariant on 02/25/07 at 22:11:33

I've tried that a couple of times now, but it still doesn't work! x.x I tried downloading the service icons again, and they still work fine. :s

Thanks for trying to help anyways.

# by BlackVariant on 02/25/07 at 22:14:31

Ok, I added .zip to the end and it works fine now. Strange, I didn't have to do that with the service icons... :s

Nice work BTW! :D

# by coerul on 02/25/07 at 22:16:28

Yeah, the files I submit are always wonky. And I have NO idea why. o.0; I submit them in the right format and everything. Oh well.

And thank you! x3

# by UnknownLoveSong on 02/26/07 at 19:41:24

Is there a colored chalk variation?

# by coerul on 02/26/07 at 19:43:03

Um...yes? There's a preview up there for it. o.0

# by UnknownLoveSong on 02/26/07 at 19:46:36

Haha, no I meant if there was a colored version of the ones with the dark background. I thought the colors looked a little darker with my dark background, but it's actually not that bad, hehe. =)

# by coerul on 02/26/07 at 19:48:54

The colored version is for both the dark and light versions. I tried to make it so they'd be compatible on both backgrounds without being too light on one or too dark on another.

# by UnknownLoveSong on 02/26/07 at 19:52:27

Yeah it's really not that bad, it works. Thanks, and sorry.

# by FasmTrout on 03/01/07 at 21:19:04

The White Chalk version is awesome in my dark contact list, but I cant see the icon in the conversation window :S. Any way to fix this?

# by coerul on 03/01/07 at 21:36:51

Hmm. I could make the tab icons black. It wouldn't be too difficult. I may not get to it for a couple days...or a couple hours. Depends on what happens. xD;

But I'll definitely do it. Guikits don't effect the tabs, right? As far as I know they don't.

If anyone has any objections please say so. :3 And if guikits actually do change the color of the tabs, please tell me.

# by marq on 02/15/11 at 07:05:10

I'd love to second this, though sadly it looks pretty old so it probably won't happen.

# by tish on 03/09/07 at 16:40:09

i'm having a bit of trouble with it,apparently the zip file isn't opening it's just copying it's self. any1 got any idea of how to make this work?

# by zyxpink on 03/13/07 at 00:54:38

rocks my boat! but does it rock urs? thats a question u should ask urself. 5 ducks all the way bro! lol i love it! i kno im basically saying nothing but just take it in as a job well done haha

# by cpuente on 03/13/07 at 20:36:58

THAAAAAAAAAAANK U!!! I really needed in white chalk! THANKS! Gracias Gracias Gracias!

# by irishchick88 on 04/12/07 at 19:19:58

I really love these! I was wondering if you could make a idle AND away icon... i have it set so it makes it a different color for the screen names, but having a different icon is cool too.
Just a suggestion!
Icons are really cute otherwise!

# by iPuce on 08/17/07 at 12:55:21

Super! C'est un des plus beau que j'aie vu jusqu' date! C'est vraiment bien, beau travail!


Super! It is one of most beautiful than I saw until now! It is very nice, good work!

# by Vannevar on 08/20/07 at 19:39:28

This is really great! Think we could pester you for a matching menu bar?

# by kmd on 07/06/08 at 07:35:14

I really really love this set, but I'm having the same issue as has already been mentioned... The white icons work perfectly on my translucent contact list (I have a dark background), but the white doesn't show up in my tabs when I'm actually sending messages (the window frame is light grey). You'd mentioned that you could make the tab icons black... is that still a possibility, or have you made a dark+light option already?

# by hendriko on 03/01/11 at 05:06:42

same for me - is there a way to get around this?

# by ekologik on 08/22/08 at 23:42:15

Nice work!

# by ekologik on 08/23/08 at 01:18:47

This is amazing!

# by phantomlover on 12/17/09 at 04:02:20

love it!
