BTNMastersword

Submitted by Jaret
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Ok, so I decided to make a mastersword. That's all. IT's a decent one I guess, I like it. I might change the background, but now, meh... I like it.
To prove I did this, here's a WIP:
[​IMG]
Before you say something, YES! I do work only in the original size, because I use a mouse.

update 1: august 28, 2010

Well, redid the background, it looks better now, and added some highlight on the blade itself. Is it better now?

update 2: august 28, 2010

Well, not much of an update. I've edited the blade a little (now looks razor-sharp) and the handle a little (The shading n shit). Anything else?

update 3: august 28, 2010

Wow. I forgot to put in commas in the keywords. Gonna do that right away.

    The sword needs to be more symmetrical.

    Well, the sword's kinda tilted to the side, so it doesn't look symmetrical enough. But it is... When I was doing the sword, It kinda looked strange, but when I did the details, it looked cool, so i'll not change the blade etc. at all. The only thing that bothers me is the background... I suck at doing them. I'll eventually change the "Triforce" to some glow or sumthin.

    I like the sword, but I unlike the background. It doesn't really fit a yellow triangle with this. Try something else, and I would also suggest a different color, something more threatening and vicious (If you want to make a threatening sword, ofc).
    And if you can, work more the highlights on the blade, because as it is now, it doesn't look too sharp.

    You would understand why a golden triangle if you played Zelda :p (This blade / sword is holy, so..)
    And yea, As stated before, I wanted to remake the background. And for the blade... Meh, next time maybe. :p

    Oh, I see :p
    Then it would depend much on yourself, actually, this is a Warcraft 3 icon, not a zelda one, but, still, if you create a zelda map for example, it would be pure sex.
    So, it depends on you, I was just talking for wc3ism.

    But the blade could still use some sharpness :p

    @Lightskin

    I made it look sharper already. What'cha think nao?

    Actually, looking at the mastersword big picture, I decided I'll redo the shadings on this one a lil bit more. Actually, just add some more glow :D

    I redid it. Anything else? I think it looks sharp enough right now. The only thing I should a little continue to do is to detailaze it a little more.
    Don't see the difference? Well, look at this then:

    Well it looks much better. If I would be an administrator, I would approve this.
    Good effort on improving it :p

    thanks, bird-dog :D
    Now, any more criticism?

    Wow, this made me hungry of doing more ocarina of time orientated icons :p

    Gonna start on a hylian shield right away. BTW it is supercomplicated, so even better :D

    No problem, red guy, um, dancing and making music (?) :p

    Well, no more criticism, I see a nice icon there, and dunno if I would change it personally, i think it is okay.

    P.S: supercomplicated icons are the best! :D

    OMG I'll finish my requests and I'll start working on icons, I wanna make icons now xD
    The hive is spreading some icon-addiction virus.

    imo the handle appears a litte too thin, slim, skinny whatever you would like to call it, that might be because of the bg having a such a bright color, the rest of the icon looks great!

    Yeah...it's from Zelda, so it shouldn't be changed. Anyway, I think it's great.
