Hi guys. Noobie here, I hope it's OK to add a couple of idea's for start buttons.

In case the links dont work, a Question mark button and a Ying Yang button would be cool

They look really great, but i was kinda hopin more long the line of this with the red eyes only on hover and maybe the clicked to have a not so bright glow. my problem is i always wanna take HUGE wallpapers and make them into small icons so they never come out right. this is huge also but pretty much exactly what i'm lookin for and of course with the glowing red eyes with a nice glowing aura kinda how the start button does ya know. i appreciate the effort and will rep! thnx

Criminal Fetus, look at this one. This is just the test, from here I can still edit it, if you are satisfied, I will complete the start orb.

add a lesser glow with red eyes to the clicked portion. i kinda want the glow similar to how the original start orb works. a nice bright gleaming glow when hovered and not so bright when clicked.

you're confusing me bull. you know the middle is "hovered" and the last one is "clicked" so just make the middle one slightly brighter and the last one add the red eyes, only don't make it glow as bright as the middle one. lol
