    Nice attempt at making a "freehand" icon.
     
  3. Why's the hand blurred? Can you sharpen it a little bit? Otherwise, This icon is just outstanding.

    It's only blurry in the full size image, the icon is fairly sharp. I didn't want to use any tools except brushes, so that's as sharp as I could get it. I suppose if I made the original at 512x512 it may have been better, but for a 64x64 icon, that seems like overkill.

    It's not meant to be towards you, but Sin' didn't like my use of the circle and square tools so I went all brush. I know there is a touch of sarcasm in it, but I honestly hope he likes it and I definitely learned something from limiting myself to just brushes. If it was not for being pushed, none of us would improve, so I am actually grateful for that. However, if he feels it in the shins just a little, that's ok with me too.

    What do you think of the icon?

    You can some blue cloth to the hand. It makes it more elegant. Something like James Cook

    I myself got a little bit different approach to freehand definition.

    But, the icon looks very realistic. Maybe a bit too much for Warcraft. Very nice job on shading tho.

    I'm sure Sin'dorei300 will like this since he is a fan of freehand icons xD
    The icon itself seems decent,except the hand is blurry and needs some defining

    Now, sharpen it up a bit(in the small size).

    Something like this should be fine.

    As for your question: just Merge all your layers(with whatever option your software has) and then resize the image to 64x64.
    After that just use a Sharpen option from your software.

    Then Save As a separate tga/which format you want to avoid saving the changes to your Layered image.

    Note: I use Photoshop.

    I find it great, but what if the paper was brown color like the old paper and the blue fading was more shading and dark:)

    Yup, that probably would look better.
