    Consistency of the icons in the pack Do four drawn icons compliment each other well? 9/10
    Blizzard style Is the style similar to standard icons? 9/10
    Concept How qualitative is the concept, how unexpected and creative is the idea? Originality and uniqueness of icons are judged. How fitting are icons for model/spell? 21/25
    Technical note Quality of: color, composition, expressiveness, shape, definition, sharpness, clarity, shading, realism, proportions, rendering, details, materials. 46/55
    85/100

    More Note: Overall, the four icons presented have a really nice appearance and contrast. Each, icon has the similar style and match very well together. The crown icon has a nice gold tint too it and shows off how gold should be made. The sword icon could use a better shape and the shading seems a bit too dark to me, I would make more brighter parts indicating that the blade is very sharp. I do enjoy these because they have a nice definition and details towards them. The color and backgrounds are nicely done with the aura bringing off the objects. Nice work.

    More Note: These icons are very confusing too me, the backgrounds are nice but it makes the actual object become camouflaged and you cant really tell what's going on in the whole icon. If you just made a black background and made a small aura around the object instead of the whole icon it would make it more visible to the eye.

    More Note: The concept here is nice, the colors all match together perfectly. The wand icon is really nicely made and has nice details towards it. The shading and clarity have a realistic feel towards them, and overall they have a nice execution. The cloak icon could be a better shape and maybe increased in size by a little. The crown itself could have more brighter highlights too give off that diamond type texture that shines bright. Lastly, the colors match well and they all match together well.

    More Note: Overall, the shape and contrast could use some editing, the rings shape seems a bit jagged and the shading seems too dark and could use some more brighter highlights. Each icon has the same color way and the definition is pretty good. Sharpness presented could be a little better, some shading doesn't seem smooth enough in the helmet and the ring, the shield icon looks pretty well made and the shape on that is very well made. Color and composition in these are nicely made, they all have the same colors and all 4 match nice. Lastly, the shading could use some work in some icons and the highlights could be adjusted. The shape of some icons also could be adjust and re defined.

    More Note: Each icon presented match well with there color way and how each icon have similar styles. The concept and creativity used is nice, the sword icon with the souls coming out is very creative and shows how the models ability's is. The shading is really dark and I feel like it could use some more brighter highlights in some spots too bring the armor more presentable to the eye. The armors themselves are really nicely made but the shading and highlights could use some work and defined a little more. Overall, the shading and highlights need some work and some definition to match all 4 icons needs a bit of editing.
