BTNLightningBladeFIX

Submitted by AbstractCreativity
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Some random lightning-enchanted sword. :D

Probably quite inspired by Tidus' celestial weapon in FFX.

100% free-hand, made with Paint.NET.

**UPDATE**

-Minor change made. Colour of the blade changed, to sepperate it from the glow.

    zombie2279: No changes made, but it's approvable. Quite a shame you can't give a 3,5 rating.

    Looks pretty good, but I think you showed wrong part of the sword.

    Better than before, but there is something strange for me. I don`t know what exactly it is... But anyway it looks ok.

    i reckon you should use a less generic glow and outline the sword with it better. The blade itself looks odd as the handle is of centre and each half of the blade aint the same size

    Review,
    ------------------------------------
    1-Blade seems to be out of placed with the handle.
    2-Effects/decoration's are quite cartoonish and needs re-working.
    3-Background looks good at the moment.
    4-Shading needs to be better on the sword.
    ------------------------------------

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

    The Lightning effects need to be more yellow or blue.

    @ Those of you saying the blade isn't alike on both sides: Duh, it's not supposed to be symmetrical -.-

    @ Dmazz and Army-of-Pandas: I'll consider re-doing background and effects.

    @ Army-of-Pandas: I'll consider improving the shading.

    Hmm, still looks good, but I don`t think it was good idea to show this part of the sword. Better was to show the blade. But anyway looks pretty nice.

    Oh sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone. <:O
    And well, I've followed some tips from moderators which I, personally, think ruined some of my icons, just to get them approved, so I'm a little pissed over the outcome of some of my icons. And that might cloud my vision and make me a bit extra sceptical to ideas I don't like myself at first glance. Even though they might be good ideas.

    Sorry. I should rather appreciate the help you're trying to give me, although my mind isn't letting everything get through properly... Lol.
    Thanks :)


    EDIT: Thanks for approval, zombie! :D

    I think it looks fine but that crooked handle spoils good impression of the icon.
