I wouldn't exactly call it a tutorial, but that's some great work there, fluff.
Most icons are saved as .png, but I think some are backed up with .svg versions (in 2.5 at least, not sure about 2.6 and up...), if you want to do that, I'd recommend getting Inkscape @ here:
Also, IDK if transparency is used on default icons, you might want to look at that...

Yeah you make your icon in paint, gimp, paintshop, or any other thing that you can save it as a png and you save it in PlatinumArtsSandbox\data\hud\2.3\icons
and then you open the icon you made in Inkscape then just save as an svg but for me it is messed up(might be for other people) and just saves it as a file when I do svg so I copy an svg in the file paste rename it my icon open it with notepad delete everything in it and open the svg saved from inkscape that got saved as a file file with notepad copy what's in it and put that in the svg file that a copied and pasted(that is if your Inkscape doesn't work right) :) Oh and I will be posting a video tutorial
