This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I made this icon for my map called Warhammer 3rd Storm of Chaos.
It was ment to be an icon for a passive ability for a dwarfen warrior. @ Warhammer dwarfes have a big book were all crimes against their race are written down.
So the dwarf tells his allies allies what every enemy has done to his race, so that his allies may fight them with hatred.

I dont care what you use this icon for, but it would be nice if you give credits.

Update: improved the lighning glow

Update: icon works now ingame :D

    @zombie2279: many people do these mistakes. Start drawing the basis already, and it's turning out fine, but when they catch theirselves, they are at the wrong layer. Then, the wand should be used to alpha the rest, and it gets the look of a CnP/ripoff.
    But the fact that he didnt use separate layers to the arm and the book makes it pretty possible that it's stolen.

    Whether it's C&Ped or not, it looks like shit right now. That blue glow needs to go. The thick black outlines ruin the quality of the icon. The pose is very static. The only good thing about this icon, in my opinion, is the book.

    2.5

    If you change things a bit, I'll up my rating.

    about the pose i have to aggro totaly, but i tried out some poses and that fit my idea most. about the outlines i have to aggro partly, they are thick, but that gives the icon a kinda comic-like look. and the blue glow will stay, because i made this icon for a hero with a blue-electrical theme

    Mm, but it's not the fact that it's blue that's the problem. Look at it, it's all flat and ugly. It looks like you cut the book and hand out of a sheet of paper and stuck it on a picture of a halogen lamp. If this was truly made for an electrical-themed hero, I would expect sparks and jolts of lightning to be shooting out of his fingers. At least try to make things look 3D, it's already bad enough that you took a bird's-eye-view perspective on the hands.

    i know its flat... but now i tell the whole story:D :
    this is an icon for a dwarfen warrior hero, and i got standart wc3 icons for all hios abilitys. out of that one, so i made one myself, and that had to be fitting to the other icons and his abilitys so---> blue. then it was important there is a opened book with one hand pointing @ the book and one @ the cam. well but with all the more dynamic versions there always the book kinda fell off. means it was too small of actual pixel-size, or too big in proportion with the hands. so i had no choice, but to make this... static version.

    when this does not fit in the herosheme (didnt import yet, cause my mate isharioth has the latest version of the map) i will completely redo it anyway.

    I really like the new glow, so disregard number 3.
    Glow also complements book so I don't think its necessary to lighten it anymore (ignore 2.)
    I still think you should lighten up the hand outlines (keep 1.).

    *edit* You might want the new glow/sparks to overlap the bottom of the book to make it look like the book is sending out the sparks instead of the sparks sending out the book. Catch me? */edit*

    Well, it looks better, but it's still flat. The point is that the glow shouldn't be UNDER THE IMAGE. It should be PART OF THE IMAGE.
