Simple ability icon, you could play around with other angle next time, I personally think straightforward sight like this tends to be a bit boring. You can try replacing the inner ring with lightest yellow (R:255 G:255 B:0) if you have the time, and...

    Looks monotone and blurry, most of the runes got ruined in icon size.

    It needs harder brush to solidify the edges,
    try experimenting with different hue of colors,
    e.g. Light yellow for highlight, possibly the runes, orange for the circle, darker orange or brown for darker layers of shade to the background smoky smokes etc.

    new version. Increased sharpness, added more colors and made runes more visible. I'm not quite happy with the inner ring's new color.

    You can try replacing the inner ring with lightest yellow (R:255 G:255 B:0) if you have the time, and see if that'll look better.

    Its a really good work for a starter, you made it non blurry and it will look good in game, @San yeah it might seem boring, but it is simple and direct and it will be easy to know and understand when you see it. To make it simple, it looks iconic and wcish, so it will fit the game really well as it is.
