    Yes, I am aware that it resembles a blood orb as well but that is besides the point.
    Feel free to post.

    Kind of looks like a "Blood Orb" to me, but still an aesthetically pleasing icon. 4/5!

    To avoid the "blood look" (if you are willing to, of course), you could add some black lines and curves which are typical for lava similar to the references below:
    reference 1
    [​IMG]

    reference 2
    [​IMG]

    reference 3

    If you decide not to do that - well, it still looks fine. When I saw it, I didn't think of blood, but I'll be honest - I didn't think of lava either. :p

    Hey SpasMaster,

    First of all, thank you for your post full of useful criticism and references.
    Second, I did indeed noticed the rather in-between look of my orb so far. Yes, I will take into account your words since I appreciate it.

    About the darker colors, yes it could be done(as always ^^) and I will do some variations for this using this post you made some time.

    Thank you for posting once again :)
