This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I've decided to give this whole icon-ing thing another go. Presenting my second icon, some sort of rod/staff. This was actually more for practice than anything, so suggestions for making this better are awesome. I'm here to learn.

Constructive criticism is ALWAYS welcome. Flaming is not.

    Looks quite nice, but seems too simple, somehow.

    Thanks, Chief-Oblivion. But do you have any suggestions on how to make it better?

    @Army-of-Pandas : I also think it looks simple... but I don't really know what to change. >_>

    Yes. I was going to say it looks really simple and to add detail but it's kinda hard with such a small space to work with. Can't really suggest what kind of details to add but with some good details on the staff it would look pretty cool.

    I think a like. Starfall kind of thing would be cool to surround it in. Not too much opacity, don't want it to overwhelm the staff but that kind of purple light thing would be pretty cool.

    I'm adding some more stuff to it right now. Also, I'm awful at making effects. >_>

    EDIT: Icon updated.

    Thanks. ^_^

    I'm really satisfied with how this icon turned out. I think the background could do better, but I'm bad at effects and... don't really know what to do with it.

    Just screw with the background layer and see where it takes you. Or just add some glow but that would distort the main picture.

    Awesome, and simple. The style is nice, nothing is really bad at it.

    Bad idea, Making it bigger would begin to overwhelm the staff itself.

    Thanks, for the comments everyone! It's my second icon and I already got a 4/5! :grin:

    (Well, technically it's my fourth icon, but I didn't upload the second or third)
