    make the green glow, glowing more (not only around the sword but in the middle other places. cuz it looks solid for now.

    Looks interesting, but it lacks highlights.

    Yay, SO4 :D

    On-topic:
    Cool icon. Very original :D
    Though I suggest you increase the contrast a little. I find it a bit dry after the update. The highlights are good, sure, but I really liked that dark look it had at first. Personal opinion, though :)
    Edit: Typo fix

    both look really great.
    the first one has a more 'obsidian' look,
    and the other more a neutral 'more uses' look.

    I think they have a pretty equal level of usefulness. But the dark one is way more bad-ass. :p

    To Static:
    Well, my suggestion is that you try to compromise. :)
    Try to make the dark areas darker, yet keep the highlights. You know, find some kind of balance.
    You could grab the dark version, and re-do the highlights, just make them smaller, to maintain that dark
    feel.
    Or you could run it through a contrast filter.

    Like... Here, I did a quick Brightness/Contrast filter on it to show you my idea.
    Just a minor change, to make it a tad darker over-all.

    Edit: Uhm, I hope you don't mind I edited it w/o permission. Ofc, I don't intend to use it or take credit for it or blah-blah-blah. :)
