    The colorful background is a nice touch.
    I appreciate that u're trying to improve this icon. But, as i said, the flag should stand out more, to be detached more from the background.
    In its present state, it can't be seen quite clearly in the small icon.
    Also, the blood and the flag's emblem are almost the same color and is confusing.
    The blood isn't really necessary, you can add, for example, some folds, to look more natural.
    The white light (coming from the upper right corner) doesn't help too much the flag to stand out, coz the flag is also white. I suggest u to choose a color that might help the flag to stand out.
    Make the details more visible, they almost get lost in the small icon.

    Sin'dorei300: Well, i see u toned up the colors a bit, but the flag still doesn't stands out enough.

    Sin'dorei300: My comment still applies, but i approve this coz it can be useful for someone.

    Maybe make the flag like torn-apart? Orcs are savage and the flag should be damaged. Also maybe some blood would be cool.

    Your style reminds of the old Warcraft games such as War1, War2 and Lord of The Clans. Keep it up, +rep. :)

    I think it's cool, but maybe another color would fit it better, you know, change the white part to red and the red part to black. 4/5 +rep

    Looks good but it is very stiff and flat due to barely any shading.

    You can do it much more interesting by editing a bit.

    Take a look at this [​IMG] for example.

    I like your style and step by step proof. :)

    Though, in my opinion, the previous one was better.

    Perhaps. Just a note, the color scheme and the background do not fit for a somewhat unclean horde flag.

    I agree with mythic, use some dark red/black/brown color.

    The execution should be smoother, but i think the program you're using doesn't help.
    I suggest you to work with another program - Gimp - for example, it's free and good enough. And, after you get familiar with it and read some tutorials(which are in abundance here in Hive), try to define better the figure in the foreground, make the details more visible and improve shading.

    And further lightning and polishing


    I decided to add some fire and falling light, is this better?

    The fiery background looks much better now. I think the light falling on the banner should be removed and do something about banner's trim. Triangles are weird, instead make it torn apart at the bottom.
