Altar of Darkness

Submitted by stonneash
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I redid the icon for the Altar of Darkness because the WCIII icon is just a screenshot of the model.
Credit is appreciated

Good enough for approval, in later icons create a better light source, I know its suppose to be a dark building but it still needs light in spots to bring it to life.

    What's wrong with the borders? Also I was looking forwards to sharing a big image but somehow when I imported the PSD to the button manager it messed it up Q.Q

    i did! I used the original icon as a slight guide, I got a picture of a skull and used it as reference to make the head, then I created the rest of the body and building, i added the fire and then I added a glow from the fire by using a layer of vivid light in photoshop at 50%. I was excited to share the process, I guess I will on the next one.

    I don't understand, you don't import the psd file to button manager you import the jpeg or png file? Also the main profile picture has no borders?

    BTN Manager works with PSD files, it translates them to PNGs i believe and goes from there, and I somehow it ended up overwriting the PSD file for me this time.

    Also, I will fix the primary icon.

    The middle of those flames could be brighter.
    The reds on bottom are kinda messy and unorganized. upload_2017-10-28_23-54-31.png
    Overall the icon is pretty dark, you could try to give it a better light source.
