BTNCloakOfFrost

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
BTNCloakOfFrost // Obviously.. it's the opposite of CloakOfFlames.

I editted a wc3icon 'BTNCloakOfFlames' using GIMP2 to get the glow effect (not blur) and to make the eye more visible. (Is the glow too much?) I also borrowed a texture from War3.mpq, converted it to a .jpg file and just sprinkled it on top to give a nice snowy effect. Is the coloring alright? My eyes are getting a hard time seeing red pigments surrounded with colors of the same shading though I don't really know if that affects my vision with this color setting and it's my first time as well. - So, go easy on me. Hahaha!

Personal touches: I removed the face 'cuz it was kinda bothering me. I dunno. I just thought that since it's an item that a hero must wear (not a specific one) instead of his/her minions. - I just made it a bit more universal!

If you're going to use this icon in your map I'd appreciate it. -- even more if you give credits.

Credits goes to Blizzard for the original icon, BTNCloakOfFlames.

    I've thought of that after I made this one. Soon.. I guess. After I gather enough inspiration and motivation for another element. Hehehe. :grin:

    I really hope some sort of actual policy is made regarding recolors, besides all or none. The problem is that it seems to be either no recolors allowed whatsoever, or that awful period we had like two years ago where they decided to allow EVERY recolor as if they weren't expected to meet the other requirements in terms of quality and usefulness.

    What ought to be done is to simply treat icons and skins the same way as models: even if it's a recolor or CnP (for a model, that would be like a re-wrap or a geomerge), it should simply be rated/approved based on whether or not it meets other requirements of looking good, being useful, and being sufficiently different from the original.

    Anyway, I really do hope an exception is made for this one, it does look quite good and could definitely be useful to people.

    Oh, one more thing, give credits to Blizzard Entertainment, that's the only way you'll have a chance at this being accepted.

    If the colurs behind were dark blue he would look like Abaddon the Lord of Avernus in DotA 2
