Submitted by morbent
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
I was inspired by Praytic's Hard Artillery Attack (http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/icons-541/btnhardartilleryattack-229929/) to make a Meteor strike. Hmm... It's very messy and pixeled but, well, if someone ever uses this ... rubbish, please DON'T give me any credits. I wouldn't want to make you waste time in something as pointless as credits now, would I?

Edit it if you want.

    Well, in my opinion it looks more like a mess with random (RGB) 0 0 255 blue sky which is totally not the sky color and the large meteor takes all the attention and leaves the other space "blank". But hmm. Thanks.

    The large image looks very nice, but as an icon it sorta looks like a campfire :( Maybe make the meteors brighter and a redder background would help ?

    Hmm... stonneast, yes, like a fog, smoke, or something around them. Well they're too small though.

    Anyway, I'm too lazy to rework it, I can make another one instead... I guess.

    Been thinking for days on how to give this icon a comment.

    Okay, lets start. Shading is very crisp. I can see what's happening, and what objects are there.

    But there's something bothering me... This one looks very.... wallpaper-ish than icon-ish. Now, that is not a bad point or a good point.

    So let me elaborate on what I said about wallpaper-ish. From this image, everything is very clear. I do not have slight trouble identifying them. But it is missing something, something that an icon has, a focus. What do I mean from focus? I mean the icon has too much meaning. When I look at it, I can think of many things. For example, a raid in a night or a way of describing chaos, or the meteor itself. The image itself can tell a story, something that happened in a place. (And if you noticed the white lines you drew became rain when resized, dunno whether it is purposely or not, which adds more meaning to the image.)

    But then again, it is not a criticism, or a compliment. I am just trying to describe it.

    Whereas an icon, it mostly only have one focus. Yes, some icons have can be used on a lot of purposes. But that's not the "one" focus I meant. When I stated one focus, meaning it only has one thing going on, but whatever it is depends on the user's taste.

    Oh I noticed another reason I said it looks very wallpaper-ish is because this icon lack the thin fading-black border. Check other icons and you will get what I mean.

    Blergh.. You can ignore me. I dont really mind since Im no good artist myself. Its just the icon is attracting me to comment it. Its the comments section after all. Peace.

    Looks cool, but it's hard to tell that it's a meteor. It has to be really, really obvious, because in-game people won't spend much time looking at the icon.

    Put more of a fire trail on the meteor to make it obvious.
