    The wood needs to be more of a brown tint and darker. Also remove the background highlights, it looks cheap. 4/5

    omg this is a bad icon. pyra should reject it for being disgusting.



    looks nice ingame. .I think the white background fits the fact that it's a weapon. the highlights make it distinct and people can clearly see that it's a "beatstick". UNLIKE MOST OTHER ICONS.

    although the blood looks like jelly. mind darkening it? at least a little. that it can still grab attention through the background?

    The metal looks pretty bad, you need to add much heavier shading to the top piece then add scratches to both pieces. After that fix the blood, it looks like blackberry jam right now.

    Also, why aren't you the model moderator? That seems much more suitable.

    if you see my tutorial (which this icon comes out from) the glow is merely there to break up the flat black background. there isnt anything special about it. and it doesnt need to be anything special

    i'll see what i can do about the blood and the metal

    ... Riiiiiight. -.-
    Anyhow, don't you think that gray is just way too bold?
    Either remove it completely or do something with it, it's adding a huge bunch of "boredom" to the icon itself.

    Nice work! (But: the blood - looks like is viscous and the metal - looks more like Al or Ag, does not appear to be some hard metal.)

    Probably the most natural looking icon I have ever seen. 5/5 :thumbs_up:

    Can you share a big picture? I wanna know how it looked before re-size (educational intentions)
    EDIT: nvm just saw your tutorial :S

    It looks like you fixed the metal? Great work on it, it looks so much better now.

    I just darkened the base colour which increase the contrast. and then i added some more scratches and what not. so it look better i think.
