Meh, a shield with effects :D Could be used for armour type, with upgrades or something?



If you guys want the blp's, just let me know and I'll upload them.



Note: I'm ready to take some Icon requests.
But I'll only do the requests that I think are interesting..
So I won't really make any random unit icons unless you have a good, serious project going on.

Just post what you need, and I'll get it done if I feel that it's interesting enough :cgrin:

It's hard to tell what the 1st one is, too much SFX. The demon one is alright I guess, but it doesn't fit WC3 at all. The claws are... odd... what the hell are they supposed to be? It looks like Wolverine stuck his hands in a jar of peanut butter. The 4th one is a bit monotone, try using some more contrast on the background to the shield, and zooming in a bit.

Maybe you should make the first few shields a little bit bigger and add some contrast to the background (if you want the contrast, but I see you already added some that would be hardly noticeable in-game). I love the colors of the second row of shields, but I can't really see what the signs on the last shield are supposed to look like. Do not remove those, because they look awesome and spacey.

the signs on the last shield is supposed to be some random runes, to make the shield look upgraded :p

The first row was the first versions, then I updated it with some more vibrant colors, zoomed in and such.
And there you go; the second row ^^

So you could see the first one as WIPS, and the the 2nd as Finals :p

The shields are nice, I honestly like the color scheme, but the overall simplicity of their shape is a bit disturbing. I recommend manipulating not only the decoration, but the general outlooks of the shields aswell, if we're talking about upgrade levels. You could add more levels of edges, decorations on the middle and near the outlines, maybe changing the overall shape by adding/removing some parts at the upgrade levels. The purple ones look better imo, but I really don't like the third upgrade level of either of them, mostly because they're consistant of random white lines put all over them. You should add specific details instead, like a magical rune of some sort. The glows look good and they definitely have potential. The weird perspective somehow doesn't give a good basis for details though, but they have potential.
