    Hey dudes and girls out there =)

    Ok let's see what we have here. First of all I looked to the icon and then to the name. Somehow I was surprised, because ( as Etzer said ) it looks more like an iron cannon not like a ManaBlast.

    You should really decrease the brightness of the icon. I think it would be also a good idea to increase the quality of the icon at all. Make it more mana style and increase the quality of the shadows and fading too.

    Everything in points:

    + Works ingame
    + You add all important icon types
    + The idea behind this

    * As I said, you should increase the quality of the icon at all
    * Also increase the quality of the shadows and fading effect

    === Result ===
    I think up to now it's just 2/5 - 2,5/5 points from my side, because this icon is not directly like a Manablast. If you make some changes the rating goes to 4/5 - 4,5/5.

    Also ( sorry ) but this icon doesn't match the requirements for an approval.


    The Keynote:

    Everything I said is nothing against you and/or your work. I know if you create an icon you spend time and skill on this. Everything I said should be a hint, how to make something better. Anyway keep working, I know you can to more!

    Nice.
    Make it more blue for the mana effect, otherwise if it is too white, it will look like thunder, or whatever an 'iron cannon' is. 4/5, Mr Bomb, it can get approved and you're judging a book(icon) by its cover(name).

    yes. i agree. the concept name for this doesn't fit.anyway, back to the icon.
    the "blast" is too solid maybe draw some lighting effects with 20-40% opacity at where the area of straight "laser" appears.

    HEY!
    So, it only took me 5 and a half year but I think this should get it approved!

    Remade the whole icon, making it diagonal to suggest movement.
    Rocks are now blown away by the impact as debris and the blast itself is more mana-like

    EDIT: I will have to convert again at home, this iMac is driving me coocoo!

    That's...quite a unique opinion but now that you mention it...
     
  18. Damn Flux, really... This icon is ruined for me now.

    Anyways, in my opinion, the eruptions are very weak, nearly transparent, think about making them look more blasting to blast away stuff.
