After making several crap icons, I decided to actually try and produce one that was 100% freehand. And yes, this icon is 100% freehand. I used no filters or effects, just a brush and the line tool. This icon is a jagged sword, with razor edges and red crystals on the hilt. Any comments, suggestions and critisism would be gladly appreciated. This icon has no model, but can still be used in maps. Enjoy!

    Where exactly is the sharp part of the blade? I mean, it is all sharp.

    Yes but what i meant is make maybe shines or texture on the sword itself, also the background has alot of red i suggest making a glow around the sword and leave the rest black.

    Looks pretteh awesome to me. But you might wanna add some more white on the razor, it will make it more metalic.

    You need some more shadings in the edges. IMO it pretty much ain't looking like a War3 icon. It's not kinda warcraftish.

    And what's up with the background. You should shade the top left and the bottom right corners.
