    Make more highlights on the clouds, then it should be fine.

    Clouds look too cartoon; try to edit em and make more dark, couse moonglow may contrast em and create shadows...

    I would have liked the moon to be yellow.
    Because the icon feels way too colourless as it is at the moment.
    But it is good and I still like it.

    I think highlights on the clouds ruined it a bit.. the angle from which you see the clouds isn't equal to the angle from which you see the bird.

    Atleast, the bird appears to be 'above' the viewer.
    And thus clouds would be darker due to the lack of light..

    And right now, the clouds appear to be on the same 'height' of the moon making the viewer sit in a plane or something.

    Just my thought :p didn't see it without highlights

    It's a bit simple now, try this

    Though my clouds suck and it's done in paint in 30 seconds..
    You get the idea. use a dark color for the shape of the clouds and a lighter stroke to give them cloudlike highlights but only a little, and only on the side where the moon shines 'past' it towards the viewer.

    I like this icon a lot, even without the clouds - better in fact. The lack of color is a bit uncharacteristic of other WC3 icons, but I like a change. Your detail works on the moon is astounding, and the raven's feathers are realistically chaotic. The head is a little square, though. I realize this might be a problem with canvas size more than anything else, but I have trouble seeing any logical shape where the head should be. It really is great work, otherwise.
