    It's not that easy, I've found that KDE icons are complex vector designs with lots of paths and shapes. You should look at some tutorials on vectors. Assuming you already Googled for the tutorial I would say that there are no specific tutorials for KDE icons at all.
    I would suggest getting the icons in SVG format and then disassembling it using Inkscape to take a look on how they're made

    I don't think he meant 'How to get new icons for KDE', I believe he wants to make his own

    Art is art. Despite the circular reasoning, you've got to be an artist to create art. Otherwise, I suppose a person could use Blender3D to create some stuff. Even then, you've got to be artsy with the program.

    Here's an Adobe Photoshop tutorial for creating icons:

    Create Icons tutorial - Adobe Photoshop Buttons

    You should be able to apply the same principals to Gimp or some other Linux graphics app and create nice icons.
