Saracen/Saber/Scimitar/Falchion Attack/Strike/Slash - thingie :D

I've been sitting on this icon for quite a while now, and finally decided to upload it.
(For those who couldn't resist clicking on my signature, you've probably seen it already, in my "Unofficial Icons" album.)

100% free-hand, can't remember wether I made it with Paint.NET or Corel Painter. Acutally, I think I used both in the process.
Oh well, what does it matter... Lol

    zombie2279: The shading is a bit messed up. I recommend removing those two shading parts from the middle of the blade and replacing them with a gap, as if a part from the blade was missing and re-doing the highlight effect. The right part of the glow looks weird aswell, blend it in with the background a bit further. It's a creative idea and quite a good execution nevertheless.

    +Full pic here, so there's no doubt :D
    (The edges are a bit grainy due to the brush I used on this one.)

    Review,
    -----------------
    1.Overall look is fantastic.
    2.you could fix the angle a bit, the hand looks outta place of where the sword is going.
    3.The shading on the sword could be a bit better, the random 2 black areas on the bottom half of the sword needs either replaced, fixed or erased because it does go with the 3-D effect on the sword.
    -----------------
    (All my recommendations to your icon, you can choose to use these or not, your choice.)
    Thanks, Army-of-pandas.

    The random black areas on the bottom half of the sword are called reflections. :]

    True, but just saying in the future watch what you do with reflections because some are not as thick as the ones you have on your icon or dark. But, overall nice job on this one.

    This is awesome, except for one thing, the hand holding it is at a different angle to where the sword is slashing.
    Apart from that, I really like this Icon. Nice job and 5/5.

    Ok its barely noticable anyway. Especially if you were playing a map with this Icon in it you wouldn't stare at the Icon while other players are owning you. :)

    Thanks everyone.

    Lol, yea that's what I thought too. You won't waste your time closely examining an icon in the middle of the game. Besides, I think a lot of people wouldn't even think much about it.
