    Change the blue to what? The gun isn't aiming at anything and any other color would seem unusual to me. I'm not trying to be a dick or anything i just don't know what i can do inside the scope. The lens has been a problem since my original idea. If you could help me out and spit ball some ideas to me i would be really grateful.

    I know, i was just pointing that out, and i would maybe re-size it bigger just a little because all the details from the gun gets killed in 64*64

    Change the background color, it clashes with the scope 'visor'.

    This is just what i suspect:
    I think this icon is acually a picture from google or somewhere.
    Where he changed colors and took away the gun beneath that we still can see some about.
    It looks alot like that........
    Well... maybe i'm wrong?
    If you've made this anyway... it's still an OKAY icon.

    Rotate left-to-right, use some smudge, fill background with radial gradient. Voilà.

    As it seems like its a google image cropped out, it still looks nice.

    That's probably not all there is to it... He probably just used the outlines. But I can't deny the icon is based of this image.

    How could i know it so bad ;o !
    I think it's not fair "mirroring" or anything like that without naming it in the text when you are getting great critique of people that thinks you've done it from 0%.
    Seriously. . . . -.-
    I mean people gave you rep for this icon cause they belived you've done this from ground, I just dont think you deserve it at all...
    "Yay rotating.... removing some stuff.... making it smaller.... changing some colours...."

    Listen if i had this gun and i would just take a picture of it modify it and post it as an icon... But i don't so i grabbed a scope i changed the gun and made this... I also didn't receive rep for this icon i don't under stand why you making all these remarks. Instead of telling me that it is BASED on an image from google which i know... tell me how i could change, improve, modify it...

    you could just redraw the scope, now that you had practiced by tracing the shape of it.

    Nice one :eek: I think the scope just have alittle 5 Degrees angle wrong though :p
    But it's great now...
    If you want a tip this is one :p
    I think you should also lay out a icon with the scope not attatched to anything... just scope nothing else...
    Cause then people can use this one to "Turn On Scope" if you get what i mean...
    I take back my charges against you, great scope Now.

    I can always change the color. The way i make my icons is i have multiple layers and all the shading is done on its own layer a color change would take me 3 seconds. So if you want me i can change it to black or something or add pattern camouflage on it or maybe digital camo.

    The hand-drawn non-traced scope looks better, in my opinion. And I think that you should go with the camo idea.
