My very first attempt to make an icon, don't be harsh. It's for my project Iceborn, so I tried making an icon and I thought why not to share if it is good enough to be approved. So yeah, it's a shield with crystals in it, all free hand. I don't care about credits.
I hope it's not too blurry.
Update: Slightly lightened and sharpened the image.
If we ignore the little blurriness.. I gotta say, this icon.. is pure awesomeness. I mean, cool contrast in colors, gamma, nice shading, light effects, well-made special effects... it doesn't look much like a shield to me, probably because of it's strange form and perspective but it is REALLY cool.
Woah, didn't expect to get so much support from you guys. I really appreciate it. Perhaps I'll try to reduce some blurriness and slightly lighten colors to become more suitable for an eye. I hope to come up with better quality in the future.
The blurriness can be reduced in many ways: first of, use BLPLab, cuz Viewer makes them blurry, second of, use sharpen tool after making the icon (sharpen the icon with around 20-40% whichever is more suitable) or just draw the lines more clearly in the big image, but I'd recommend 1 and 2 as better stuff to do, to reduce blurriness.
