The Starting Point.

Say, if you want a challenge, you should try doing HQ Advance weapon icons. That would be interesting.

Note: The following text is actually a direct narration of Mr.Mike.

                                               This is a modification for any of the GTA games,to bring our 2D,8-bit quality weapon icons in high quality.As our own resources are not modifiable into better quality ones and installed on the GBA,I decided to contact this Vercetti guy on making the weapon icons.I also saw a post in which he promised a member on releasing the HQ Weapon icons.I waited for nearly 3 years and after seeing no progress,decided to contact this guy. You can install his icons on any of the GTA games(not on 2D universe and in GTA Advance,of course.).There are totally 15 icons in this mod,plus one additional icon for Molotov cocktail as he was in doubt on designing the icon.

                                             While you think about the similarities between original and the duplicate(This mod),you may notice some differences.It is mainly because of our world,in which everything is 8-bit,including me.

Honestly, I'd try to remake some of them to be less cartoonish. Lots of them are supossed to be like the GTA 3 ones, however the GBA had it's own limitations.

The icons are "heavily" based on the original ones,which had a slight gradient feel to it similar to GTA3.
Besides,GTA3 has a different icon holder,compared to Advance.
 
Consider the following.
GTA3:120px-M16-GTAIII-icon.png
 
Advance:120px-CarBomb-GTAA-icon.png
 
Notice the borders of the icon holder(that rounded rectangle).

I'm talking about the details. Compare the Advance AK to the III one. While they are similar, the Advance AK is less detailed and squarey because of GBA limitations.

What I mean is that you could take the liberty to improve them further to get them on par with other GTA icons :)

GTA:A AKAK-47-GTAA-icon.jpg  GTA3 AK:120px-AK-47-GTAIII-icon.png I don't think my version of GTA:A is super detailed.It looks really close to the GTA:A AK.

If making square icons is a real need,then we might look for some different mod,such as "Advance Weapon Icon Remake:Classic Edition" or something.

Dude, do you even understand what I mean? That is the complete oppsite of what I'm talking about. I am talking about Improving the icons, not downgrading them. I even further mentioned it in the same post. Your remakes could use more detail than the original ones so they won't look completely cartoonish or unfitting. Jeez :/
