Yes. I'm no good at gimp/inkscape. Where does one go to get icons?

This is just a homemade icon waiting a substitute.
We need a new and beautiful icon for gnome-paint.

Hi everyone,

What about this one? This is the icon designed by one of my friend, Riku Lu. If you think it's okay, or need some improvement, please answer here.

I promised to add an acknowledgement to him if it's accepted by the project.
