17:11, 13th Oct 2014 Sin'dorei300: The flame-details are lost in the 64x64 icon, zoom in a bit or make the flames more visible. Also, i don't see too much freehand. 16:32, 19th Oct 2014 Sin'dorei300: Might be useful.

    I suggest having an inner circle of flames right beside for a transition. Other than that, looks good.

    I don't feel it's really solarish because of that black circle. Maybe you should make it look like a real sun by adding some fiery effects.

    Right now the black space looks directly erased. There needs to be some depth.

    "Submitted Icon Resources have to be at least 50% freehand work.
    Filter works, recolors and copy-pasting of other artworks are not considered freehand content...."

    but the lens flare filter is the only thing that is not freehanded right? Can this be still approved? I saw some icon makers using the sharpen filter.

    BTW, @Sin'dorei300
    Here's the timeline:
