I must say its a very high quality icon... could you give me tips on how to achieve such wondrous icon?
This is just a screenshot icon, I edited it slightly (the shape of the face, the eyes, and smoothen the skin a bit)


I think the face could use some slight work though
Which part of the face? :D

EDIT:
Updated! Fixed the blurriness. ctrl + f5 to see changes

DC doesn't mean "completely drawn by hand". It means "visually impressive, outstanding quality, and perfect follow-up to Blizzard's artistic style". This icon got it all.

Even tho the icon is a modification of the screenshot, you still did the skin 100% freehanded. I don't care whether is the skin or icon freehanded, as long as it looks superb, it gets high rating from me :)
 
I think in all of Hive's history, no DC was ever granted to a screenshot icon.
And so far no rating was given to screenshot icons for various resources.
Few examples(and about quality, these icons speak for themselves):

icons_18384_btn.jpg
icons_11837_btn.jpg
icons_11839_btn.jpg
icons_11707_btn.jpg
icons_11651_btn.jpg
icons_10659_btn.jpg
icons_11843_btn.jpg
icons_10352_btn.jpg
icons_10299_btn.jpg

Also, here we have some great DC skins/models and their great icons haven't even been given rating.

There's first time for everything, right? :razz:

And for rating, it's not true. I've seen tons of resources getting 4/5/ and 5/5/ just because they were drawn/taken screenshot of that good.

And you can't compare his work to that of 67chrome and compare ratings.
If anybody good enough was asked, half of those skins would got a DC - the mods back in the days were insanely low on rating grades.

IF you as me, all of those icons are worse. The wizard in the middle is the only real contestant.
 
... all of those icons are worse...
Unbelievable.

No, the mods back in the days were just fine. Just the quality of resources has decreased nowadays, but even so it's still not enough to give DC to a screenshot.
And a screenshot is just a screenshot, nothing more. A piece of art can be awarded, but not its screenshot.
