Respect. You can use, in particular:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GIMP[^],
http://www.gimp.org/[^];
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inkspace[^],
http://www.inkscape.org/[^];
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IcoFX[^],
http://icofx.ro/[^].
 
All of the above should not be a problem for you. The real problem is much more difficult: idea, drawing, composition, in a word: art. Very non-trivial. Not many people in the world can do it well, really.

Respect? So you guys normally "steal"? Sorry if i offended you!

Please, check yourself and have some minor sense of humor. You did not offend anyone, no one tried to offend you...
And I answered your question somehow, despite the fact it's off-topic.

ok I just checked my sense of humor. It seems ok. I'm sorry about that. Can I ask you again. Do you normally "steal" image/icon/ any graphics for your own program? I'm just wondering because I'm still a college student.

What does being a college student have to do with anything? If you want to create your own icons that great, go do it. If you want to use publicly available graphics that are public domain, great, go do it. No one is telling you to steal anything.

Are you serious?

Why the conversation turn soooooo bad. The reason I'm saying I'm from college is because I never work at any IT company. I'm soooo "fresh". I hope you guys can understand
Sergey Alexandrovich Kryukov at 26-Apr-13 22:30pm
   
What's bad? Aren't you seeing everything from a negative side? Aren't you shifting the subject?
And you can be sure: experts understand being "fresh" well enough, because everyone was "fresh" some time ago; and I personally am very, very "fresh" is some other subjects right now. I hope you understand that being "fresh" is not an excuse for anything, but it can be considered as a possibility...
 
OK, I gave you a comprehensive answer, without touching the artistic part much — learning it may take a lifetime, or so.
If you have particular follow-up questions, please, you are quite welcome to ask. What's the problem?
If you get it, please accept the answer formally (green button).
