  Right but that shape makes quite a bit of difference here -- especially since 
real mouse design is *all about* shape. You'll also note that the actual mouse 
you took for inspiration has a much more pronounced "hump" (as many modern mice

  That is an artistic choice.

  Rght, I wouldn't have much of a clue either on how to make *any* icon. (It's 
just a lot easier to criticise than it is to create...) If on the other hand
