    My process typically involves thinking about what it is I'm trying to represent, mocking it up quickly in vector format (I use Sketch), then fine-tuning repeatedly until the elements come together.

    I have nearly zero artistic ability outside of clicking and dragging vector points around.

    It helps if you have an artistic eye, however. Being able to see the small details that make something what it is are invaluable to the creative craftsman (or woman).

    For example: highlights give depth to objects. Not all icons need to have highlights, but if you're trying to convey one object above another, or a difference in heights, a cutaway or lighter shading on part of the object can go a long way.

    As for process shots: Dribbble has about 283,000: https://dribbble.com/search?q=icon+process
