Some icon I made a couple of months ago, really. Forgot to upload it until now ^^
"A rune carved in stone, used for casting fire spells." Fitting description? Yes/no/maybe/dunno?
Item or ability icon? ... Hmmmmm can't decide

Anyways... 100% freehand, as always, made with Corel Painter 3.

***UPDATE***

Complete remake. Changed the angle to make people avoid the confusion of some kinda fist. (It's really frustrating when the moderators want you to fix something that's not in the icon :D )

    zombie2279: Damn, you're gone again. Well, fix it once you get back.

    zombie2279: The stone is quite basic, I'd be happier with the rune turned into red surrounded by a light-red glow. The fire effect is totally off, I suggest redoing that completely, to make the stone look like it's on fire.

    zombie2279: Rejected until updated.

    EDIT: Oh lolz didn't notice. (Haven't been around for a week, I was in Germany w/o my computer) ;)
    Well as I said, I made it months ago. YOOOOOUUU copy-cat ^^

    But this one is more like... Norse mythology, rather than a chinese coin or something? Woot-woot :)

    It looks like a fist in a way, all clenched up in a white glove with a symbol on it.
    Well its a good Icon, keep up your good work!
    Oh and Corel Painter 3, wow!

    Hm.. rune is weird. Add more details to the fire, delete the black spots around the rune, and make rune more colored.

    Uhhh what fist? There's no fist in my icon :0 Just a fiery stone with some random rune carved into it :)
    Thanks! :) But then there's that fist again... 0.o I just can't make myself see any fist :eek:

    I'll see what I can do to improve it when I'm back from Riga... Now I gotta do the last preparations before I leave tomorrow :0

    It somehow looked like a fist. I was talking about the general detail level anyway. The old one looked better than this one, as far as I'm concerned.

    Looks ok, may need more minor details or effects.
