Icon is handdrawn, and is attached too said model. Since its handdrawn instead of being a screenshot this will be approved.

    Uploading an icon that is purely a screenshot fitted for a specific model, skin or spell in any of their respective sections is not permitted. You must "Edit" the bundles of the corresponding resource and add the icon there.

    Icon is already on said model, therefore this will be removed because icon is on said model.

    Ah, now I get it

    This icon was uploaded here before I figured out how to attach icons to the model as a pack.

    Sorry about that, Panda

    As mentioned by the author, it was made freehand and should not be treated as a pure screenshot icon.
    Pending icons for further reviews.

    Then we need to edit that rule because that's what it says if the icon is on the model then that's how it should be but if its freehand then ??

    The rule exists to prevent people from uploading pure screenshot into the section, if its made freehand like how a standard icon would be, then it's just another normal icon to be treated nornally, no matter if its based on any model or not. You're overcomplicating things.

    It's not my job to change the rules, I'm just an old babushka trying to clean up the backyard.

    I have few suggestions about the icons;
    1. Three of your icon looks washed out and somewhat blurry, to fix that, simply increase their contrast.
    2. Since most of the standard Warcraft unit icon goes with a black background, you kinda overdid the red glows behind them, the result is very obvious on Cargul, you should reduce the denseness of the glow.
    3. Work with different hue for the background glow, you could probably add a green/yellow layer of aura(based on his blade and runes around the robe(on the model)) to Cargul for differentiation purpose, or maybe some orange for flame effect.
    Here's some rough example based on my suggestions;

    Some of them will be substandarted due to the lack of decency if you are not going to provide any update, please let me know if you do, HerrDave.

    I'll get on it soon as I can, San

    Thanks for helping me out :)

    Pardon the roughness of the icons, I'm still working out how people get good looking icons when they can only work with 56x56 pixels

    Not sure how you get the numbers, but people usually work on bigger sizes like 256x256 and the standard icon pixels are 64x64.

    I got 56x56 from when I take away the icon border (4 in each dimension)

    Yep - I'll send them to you directly

    They were taken down over a big fuss regarding textures that were screenshotted/smoothed out instead of hand-drawn
