Well, I though I try to make another free hand icon since the last one i uploaded sucked..
oh well give credits where used etc. etc.

btw it's not 100% free handed since i used sharpen twice and the blur tool to make the ends of thw twirl blurry.

EDIT: New background

    Overall a good concept. But the fireball doesnt really match with the background.
    Its a 5/5 Upgrade icon. But not useful for a spell at the moment.
    Either let the fire match more with the backround or make a water/ice, wind, earth one in this style too.
    4/5

    Sorry, but this icon does not appeal to me, but I didn't say it's bad, but you should consider about changing the background...

    I'd tell you to change the background, it flows into the fire making it harder to see but still, awesome icon. Make it perhaps plain black or a faint glow. Awesome concept, make other elements too :D !

    It's better but not quite there yet, I'm not sure what needs changing but it needs that special touch. Good 'thou. :grin:

    gah this is hard to figure out :sad: oh well i'll come up with something and fix it as soon as i get home tomorrow :hohum:

    EDIT: HappyTauren i know that the red blurs together, that's why i have been trying to come up with something other for the background..

    EDIT 2: Still haven't figured out how i should make it look nice :sad:

    Do you allow me to make some graphical adjustments on your icon?
    I wont post the results anywhere of course.
    Then i may tell you what you can improve here.

    EDIT: Damn >.<
    This icon has a special touch. Every try to change it in any way destroys that effect. It does not really match to the most of the warcraft 3 icons.
    As i said before, create a water/ice one, a rock/earth one and a storm/air one too.
    If noone else figures out what to do with this one, leave it for now.
    Great damage type icon.

    EDIT 2: Why hasn't the icon changed? :sad:

    1)If you make an elemental set, the whirl looks better. If you dont, dont change it for now.
    2)It takes some time but if you wait some minutes the icon changes after you updated it.
    3)Dont know.
