BTNHolyStrikeRemakeFix3

Submitted by AbstractCreativity
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I felt an urge to remake my [http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/icons-541/btnholystrike-123982/?prev=u%3DAbstractCreativity] icon.

Tbh I think it turned out quite okay :)

100% free-hand, made with Paint.NET

***UPDATE***
-Quick update, 5 mins after resource submissions. Gotta love efficient work :thumbs_up:
-Reworked the gauntlet. Metal gauntlets are NOT supposed to be 100% organic, and they're NOT supposed to be 100% square-like either.

-Shows more of the wrist.
-More shading on the handle.

-Sharpened the blade.

-Even MORE shaing/highlights on the handle.

    Review,
    ------------------------------------
    1:The handle is bothering my it looks too small at the moment.
    2:The hand could use more detail and have some realistic feel to it.
    ------------------------------------

    (All my recommendations to your icon, you can choose to use these or not, your choice.)
    Thanks, Army-of-pandas.

    Thanks, both of you :)
    EDIT: All three of you lol

    (Oh, and a thing I forgot to mention: Please rate/review the ICON, not the full pic. It's what you see with a border, and eventually in-game, that counts! Not a full-sized version that really does seems a lot more cartoon-ish at first glance than the real icon. I just happened to plop that onto my subscription post anyways.) :)

    EDIT2: Okay, the hand has now received an outline revamp, + some extra details. It's a bit weird when a metal gauntlet is organic 0.o

    The blade is very blurry compared to the rest of the image. I suggest you make its edges more defined (just sharpen them a bit)

    mhm i dont know the handle just seems so messed up and the hand doesnt quiiet fit in

    You could add more details and highlights to the hand and you definitely need to rezise the handle. if you do this this surely will be a great icon :D
