    Well. Remove the background firstly.
    Second: Detalise edges with strong shading and metallic texture.
    Third: Change the color of the edges to some metallic style...


    there is one low quality example made in 2-3 minutes:

    just check it :)

    Looks like a beautiful ice flower, not a deadly weapon.

    Dude that's anoying xD.
    I think that your big picture was pretty great, but when it became a icon it turned from a knight in to a peasent.
    Well yes use some darker colours and you've gotta practice keeping the "Background" away from the "Object".
    Even though because this is your first icon, i say it's an okay work then but i woulden't download it because it's hard to recognize it's a shuriken :). Pict.jpg <---- i've also made a shuriken and this was my result :)! Maybe it gave you some insperation, i dont know.
    Even though it never got approved :hohum:......:thumbs_down: :grin:.
    Good Luck in your future iconmaking.
