Hooray, my first icon! :grin:

Resembles a sort of footman-like unit. Inspired by Blizzard's "Air of Triumph" wallpaper.

100% free-hand, made with Corel Painter Essentials 3


***Update***

I remade the sword, so it fits better with the rest of the model.
Got myself a new border tool, so the DISBTN and DISPAS borders should be normal now.

    A bit too bright, but good nonetheless.

    It's not a CnP, I made it from scratch. Thanks for the constructive replies (A bit too bright, the head looks a bit big etc etc! :) )
    I'm sorry it's a bit grainy, I could have something to do with resolution, or my settings with the Airbrush tool in the Painter Essentials 3 ^^

    The computer I got the full size pic (500x500) is having network issues atm, but I will show the fullsized one in a minute.
    (Or if you're impatient, you can check out the full size pic on my DeviantArt profile, "Arcanizer". Here's the link: Champion by ~Arcanizer on deviantART)

    If you don't believe I'm Arcanizer at DeviantArt, just quickly make a profile there and ask me some sort of question from THW (for instance, "What's the latest icon posted or something like that?") and I'll answer it.

    Misjudged you. Forget my comments.
    Very nice 5/5.
    Especially for a first icon.
    You, sir, lie. This must be your... sixty forth icon. :smile:
    +REP Also.

    Same thing goes for the "Ranger" icon. I based it on my picture called "Portrait" on DeviantArt.

    Oh, and by the way, about my user on DeviantArt. You might recall my avatar, and nickname related to one of my pictures. :]

    Calm down a bit. Don't abuse capital letters.
    I hope you won't mind if i edit your posts a bit.
    But i will mind if you continue with this.

    The icon fits in better, but the sword should match with the overall appearance of the soldier. Right now, it looks like being pasted on him, and it definitely is not.
