This bundle is marked as substandard. It may contain bugs, not perform optimally or otherwise be in violation of the submission rules.
I don't know if anyone noticed, but I haven't uploaded any icons for ages.
And I don't know wether anyone's been missing my icon art either, but I am allowed to hope so :)
Anyways, now that I've got my project up and going, I'll be making some icons on the sideline. So here I come with my (more or less) epic return!
A three tiered upgrade picturing some Hoplite/Phalanx/Spartan/Whatever helmet.
First of all, I'd like to say DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT HISTORY AND LORE MISTAKES! 'Cause they will be ignored, as I couldn't care less right now. I care about your criticism towards the icons, not their cultural background. Bitches.
Then, I'd like to say that I couldn't be arsed to draw with my tablet, so this is made with the mouse. Gogo Line / Curve tool! :D

This is the first tier of the upgrade set.

    Probably not my best icons ever...
    And I don't know wether I will bother to fix these.
    So in case you really really like them, make sure you download them as quick as possible, as they might not show up again should they be rejected by a moderator.

    PS: Yes, I know the helmet in T1 is a bit off-set towards the center of the icon. Trust me, it looked really bad when it was at the same height of the other tiers without having the decorative fan thingie ^^

    Bitches. These are bitch'in.

    Edit: Well, it's better than half the stuff pending in the icon section atm. I'd say this is very approvable. On your others, I would recommend shading the red on top more.

    Pretty good, but would look better with a bit more glow in the background.

    This goes for all three of your helmet icons.
    More shading is needed! And blend out between the colours, so it will get a floating transition between a dark, and a light color.
    Also blend the background out in the black in the edges.
