    Reference

    P.S faces aren't that easy to make.

    Edit: Small changes based on spasorc's feedback.
    June the 19th 2015: Darkened background and changed its color a bit. Thanks to Sin's feedback.

  2. Very cartoonish, reminds me a bit of CarbotAnimations drawing style.

    He has a strong facial expression that contributes to the cartoonish style.
    I am not sure, but are Protoss even able to express their emotions via face ? I cannot remember seeing facial expressions in WoL.
    I see the reference picture has this kind of expression, too. I am not sure about it, tho.
    Nonetheless, they are greatly executed

    You could add some more shapes to the chin ornament, as you can see in the reference it is not a cylinder, but a bit more creative.
    Additionally, you could think about adding the hair, too. The current version feels a bit empty towards the background, doesn't it ?

    The eyes seem either too small, not well-defined or not glowy enough. I cannot say for sure (it's glow I guess). I'd add the tendrils at the back of his head aswell. Overall this is a great base. With some tweaks here and there, I am sure you can make an excellent end result.

    You could slighy decrease the teal glow around his head, it makes the head fading with the bright background.
    Additionally, his back head looks strange, I don't see Protoss having cube heads, it looks unnatural ( beside the fact they are aliens).

    Maybe spasorc could give feedback again as well, so you can make this perfect based on his comment.

    His head looks just as it is supposed to, Ardeniadon. Take a look at the reference before making such statements.
    And I don't think it needs any additional glow editing.

    Please keep that to yourself!
    Your comments on my icons are not required if you keep giving criticism based on your preferences.
    Also just to burst open your bubble, I'm not making icons to please each individual's view.

    I'll consider listening to your comments after you've changed your take on giving proper criticism and attitude.
    Until then we have nothing to talk about.

    So, here's the thing. Your personal preference doesn't matter in the slightest goddamn bit. There is a request section for you to get a resource changed to fit your needs.

    Criticism in the Resource sections should be based on how well done the product is, not what the fuck you want specifically. People that do that are fucking infuriating.


    Now, that aside, I like the icon as is, though, the shadows are a tiny bit too dark, coming off as thick, black lines. Even so, this is a fine icon.

    Okay, updated now.
    I'll keep the above pictures attached just in case someone wants variations and whatnot.
