Hooray! My first icon for an ability! :grin:

Name says it all. Holy Strike.

100% free-hand (like always ^^ ) Made with Corel Painter Essentials 3.

**Update**

Remade the hand, now it's more like an armoured glove / gauntlet.

Remade the sword, to make it look less cartoon-like.

Recoloured the glowy stuff, so it looks more intensive, and more holy.

Feedback pl0x :thumbs_up:

    Sword is a bit too cartoony looking and the holy glow isn't that holy looking if you know what I mean. (Moar pew pew glowing)

    Yes, please. Also, the lower part of the glow is too straight.

    I should mention, if you work a bit on it, you could imitate the style of Blizzard's icons.
    It's very interesting.
    You could darken the sword a little bit, or improve the silver/iron aspect of it.

    Thanks for the feedback, all of you. :thumbs_up:

    Now that I know what could use some improvement, I can work on it to perfect the icon. Will post an updated version by the end of the week, hopefully. Depends on how much time I have, though...
