I draw these icons with brush and did not use any filters and tools.Hm.. I don't want to sound rude, but this might just be a combination of smudge painting, dodge/burn and a little brush work (with the least chance). The enlarged pixelated Bandit icon can easily be cleared by the Smudge tool, to be presented as a large image. I did a quick example showing this:
If this is the case, I'm not sure what you guys or mods think, but this does not fulfill the required standards because of being only a recolor according to the current rules, imo.
@84chrome Have you painted this completely by using brushes, or just using the way I explained?
Edit: Well, if she even used brush work (freehand), this is still a traced work by the looks of the image. And vice versa, even if this passes by the tracing rule (perhaps because this is a Blizz icon, and not the artwork of someone else) or she has not traced this, this still does not meet the 8th rule (again because it's a just recolor with some minor improvements), unless it'd be approved because of usefulness.
Please fix the eyes so they arn't looking like there staring really hard at you, make them relaxed just like a normal set of eyes would like this.
