I guess this is the look you wanted so leave this one and just keep in mind for the next one. and like some have already said you need to keep your straight lines straight and your curves as perfectly smooth curves. The green part of the blade. i dont exactly understand what it is so you gotta fix that, blends in with the lightning, and is making the edges of the sword undefined

    The icon looks too messy as it is now.

    I'm in agreement with Army-of-Pandas about the swords shape, it looks a bit like a square rather than blade like its a huge really blunt weapon, and it gives me the idea that the sword it like this:
    _______________
    |_______________|----
    witch imo is very strange it doesn't appear to have a blade at all, make the blade more odvious plz.
    As you said your goal was to make a differant sword, but this is more like a box :S

    However i do think the colours are fine, but i'm not the one whos good with colours. i dont have anything more to add.

    On the white part of the blade, make that the light part and then on the opposite side make it the dark part. Also, the handle needs some better shading too. Use what i said first too do that also.

    it doesn't need to increase in side, but make it easier to diffrenciate between the sword body and blade. Other than than it's pretty good. ^^

    Now its much better, if your making a sword remember that there's a light and dark side, which you did that with this. Nice job. Now focus on the handle a little more.

    I think there is too much different colors in that small 64x64 image.

    Straighten the lines within the sword and make clearer definitions between the colors or it just looks incredibly cartoonish. Add more shading, add more glow to the energy in the background, and do something about the handle as a whole.
