    It's an axe right? It's really hard to recognise it for a first time.
    I think the problem is with the handle, the yellow looks like it's part of it, while it's a background I guess? But yeah when I look closely, it really looks good.

    Shh . . . Sin'dorei is having a hard time, I guess. because , lol.
    I don't remember him acting like that months ago.
    I've also heard many people were just banned for hillarious reasons.

    And I've read the name, sorry if i've offended you for giving out my thoughts.

    Without the name, it would damn hard to guess what it is.

    Heck, even with the name, it took me a minute or two to guess what it really is. The axe itself looked like it was the background. My first thought was that it was a violin or something because of the combination of the handle and the yellow background surrounding it. :/

    Yes.
    I think the axe and the background are blending in such a degree, that it looks like a violin.
    Might look good on a large scale, but the interest is to look good and easily recognizable on a small-scale (64x64).

    I've spent some minutes looking at this really hard and I still can't find an axe.

    Not that that's a problem, I actually really like rorschachs icons.

    It looks like an axe to me, no mistaking it. I don't see where the problems lie.

    I am starting to think that it was the author's intention to make illusion. ;)
    it looks like a violin and at the same time an axe. It is very tricky, from what perspective you look at the icon.
    +rep to author for making optical illusion.

    Is it really that hard to see!?!? xdd The handle is the diagonal line coming from the lower left corner to the upper middle part. The axe has 2 edges (double edge !) On the right part of the icon, you can clearly see the right blade and you can see the sharp edge in the bottom (strong light)... the left side is a replica but from another point of view, again the strong light is on the sharp part of the axe blade.

    How is the background blending with the blade? that i dont understand, the whole axe is outlined with black or white to stand out from that yellowish background

    I still do not see anything even remotey resembling an axe, even with that description..

    [EDIT] Oh, wait I see it now! The black part is the axe, I though that was the background.

    Basically, this is what I saw: (focus on the orange parts)

    Oh yeah, look at the orange stuff it looks like a .. something.
    Focus on the black part and you have a double edged axe. Maybe make the orange less orange and the black stand out more?

    Talk about eyes fooling you ..

    [​IMG] (It is zoomed in like this one (almost, you can see the complete right blade on mine while you can see the left one on this one (it is reversed))

    [​IMG] It has this shape (not completely but you can see the double edge clearly)

    [​IMG] It almost has this angle on my icon, mine is even more bent)

    I can't make it clearer than this, if you still can't see it its because you're looking at it the wrong way, i'll try to update it soon to make it simpler but yeah... you should be able to see it now...........

    EDIT: oh you edited it while i was writing... xd i'll change that background then...

    No, everything is fine.. The icon deserves a DC for having an Optical Illusion.

    A violin axe?
    I like it.
    Heh no it took me a couple of seconds to see the axe as well.
    Since the axe is angled as it is and is heavily focusing on the double blades, shouldn't the handle get smaller and smaller the further it gets to the left corner?

    It's not exactly frog perspective.
