BTNShoulderPad

Submitted by The Leader
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Description:

"Being prepared for footmen means: having a strong will, open mind, well trained body, a good sharp sword and quality armor. These brave warriors can fight without a basic equipment, but they are more exposed to danger and quick death. After that only bravery and will remain as a former image of their selves. So that's why they have armor on them."

Feel free to comment, whenever you can, to give ideas, as it would help to improve the icon and make as it should be.

Enjoy!

    Instead of outlining in black maybe try a light brown or dark brown? Also, give it more curve, it needs to go on a shoulder so make it seem like its already on a human shoulder but it really isn't and make it curved that way. Clean up the black and white shading on the middle and bottom part of the shoulder metallic area, add some scratch's and sword marks making it seem like this has been through war. The bottom half of the shoulder throws me off a little bit, I keep thinking this is a gauntlet or metal gloves, so for the bottom half I would make it not so long and maybe add some designs/symbols on it.

    Hmm, it'a actually a good idea ty, but i have redone icon, as i thought that this is too bad drawn, like i did with axe. I think that update is better than previous version.

    Well, I think the first version was much better if you just do The Panda's suggestions. The shape of this version is a bit better. Maybe apply this shape for the first one. I think the first one was much more accurate. It doesn't look metallic now. Just my thoughts, I'm not a pro maybe my words are wrong or..

    The thick black lines in the middle of the shoulder should be thinner and the shape needs reworked, please look at this example and go by that with shading and highlights. Example.

    Overall nice update, the shading needs to be smoothed alot better, right now it looks like waves of different hues of greys and blacks, smooth them out. Also, add some ribets towards the should pad that shows the welding process and hows it created like this photo.
