One spear, forged by nature energy

Feedback please :) and credit me if you use this in your map, thanks.

Don't edit my icons without my permission.

Updated:

-Decided that the whole "poison in rocks"-idea really didnt was that great (after your comments), and made this out of the previous icon instead, hope you will like it better now. (i do at least :) )
-Changing and doing things maked the icon turned out like this, renamed it to naturespears.
(If i just should upload a new icon for this please correct me.)
-Lowered the light glow and tried to make the edge sharper and more defined.
-Removed the twirl on the edge and darkened the background and lowered the glow behind the edge/blade.
-lightened the background behind the edge/blade and added more shadows in order to define the blade more.

    I honestly cannot tell what this is without looking at it for a while.

    Maybe make it easier to tell what it is, and add more shading/highlights.

    I found it kind of messy as well, i will reduce the stuff in the top of the icon, to get the focus on the rocks. But wanted to see what other people thought first.

    Understandable, and after you do so, I will re-evaluate it.

    The stones look bad, too sharp and similar, and the angle isn't the best for a spell or an item.

    [EDIT] Also, I don't like those smoke puffs, and the idea of greasing rocks with poison makes no sense to me...
    Anyways, I would give this 3/5 until some changes I like.

    First i would remove all the little decorations in the background that make it seem messy. Second i would, start from a new approach/ or angle of the spear. This is an example of a good angle and some good poison effects added towards the spear/arrow. If you want 2 spears instead of just one, then make 2 side by side or away from each-other, whichever works best. Third i would, remove the twirl effect you have on the spears head and add either drips of poison, or as in the link i gave you above, you could add a "splash" of poison everywhere around the spears area.

    Just some suggestions. -Army.

    Can't really see the tip and it doesn't look sharp for some reason.

    Yea noticed that on the icon as well, on the big one it looks better. Will have to define the edges.

    That little twirl effect around the arrow/spear is ruining it! seriously.

    I like it, although, the background kinda draws your eye away from the spear in it.

    Yeah, well, i smudged some of the part of the blade/edge when i began on the icon (can't remember why, was stupid) so when i try to do some more shadows/highlights to the edges of the spear, it just gets even less defined, so was having a hard time to define it.
    And therefore i had to lighten up the bg so the spear was more defined.
