    Moin moin you hive-dudes ;)

    A new icon - so here we go =)

    Ok I can't agree with Etzer first of all. I see the volcano and also the lava-flames at the back. In addition you add a dragon(?) on the top of the volcano, which is a good idea I think. Also I can't see it as a cartoon icon at all.

    I think Etzer means that the volcano have not enough details and in this point I have to agree a little bit. Maybe you create some better quality of lava running down volcano. Also you should increase the quality of the dragon (?) a lot (maybe you can Google "Red Dragon" and there you see some ideas for the wings and the body ).

    What we got in points:

    + Works ingame
    + Contains the icon + a dragon (?) bonus
    + Very good idea at all ( I really like it )
    + You add all important icon types ( maybe autocast icontype but this not necessary)

    * This icon needs some better quality at all
    * You should add some better lava at the volcano itself
    * Fix the dragon (?) with some changes ( like if you look for some red dragon wallpapers you will get some ideas

    === Result ===
    I have no reason to give any negative points as you see, but I hope you note the neutral points, that you should spend some more time at this icon, to make it better, increase the quality and so on. Up to now I would give 3/5 points. After you fix the icon I will definitely give 5/5!

    This icon match the requirements for approval!


    Keynotes (2 notes):

    Everything I said is nothing against you or your work. This points just should be some ideas/hints, that you can release at/on your icon to make it better, so keep working!

    @ Etzer: That I disagree with you at the top of my thread is nothing against you. Everyone have his own idea, his own imagination of the idea/of the release. So please! don't rate it negative <-- this nothing! against you.


    Edit (Last word^^): If this icon have a better quality and you make some improvements , this icon will be Director's Cut in my eyes, because then it's a really awesome and very very good icon and idea - so please! keep working =)

    Dr. Boom ===> Thats nice to see someone who like at least the concept, and posting a complete report with + and - ^^
    Actually, i dont know how to increase quality. The original picture is 1400x1400 pixels so the detailing after reducing should be perfect. I think it's not blurry, but rather a little confusing, because i mayby made something too detailed.
    I can still try shading the volcano and add some lava, but thats all.
    Well, i think i have to improve myself about picture management.

    Last thing : Yes, it's a dragon and i don't understand why is it so hard to you guys to see that :)

    You mean the icon is better that the original large-size picture ?
    Btw, the icon you posted here is a bad example.
    First, i find this icon sucks. Second, i find it's more cartoonish than realistic.
    But as Mr. Boom wisely said, everyone has a different way to see the things and the art :)

    Actually, if it weren't for the horns that looks more like a Wyvern

    Agreed, we'll just hope wyverns don't just suddenly grow horns.
