About

I was praticing making icons, and as i think the result is decent enought to be uploaded, i did upload it. I hope you will like it, and maybe also use it. Thanks to enjoy and kola, they gave me some feedback before i did upload it. I have remade the icon and turned it into a spear. I've added some details into it and fixed a few things too. Enjoy!

    Okay, so... where do we start...

    Well, I don't want to sound nerdish and to be strickt, just want to point out on flaws:
    1) If it's a fire arrow, then some part of the metal should be "on fire", and to make better effect the trails of the fire should go further.
    2) Metal looks nice, but abit more shadings would make it even cooler.
    3) If it's not a fire, then decrease the background opcaity and make it glow.

    Overall, it does look nice, but not really useable, so 4/5.

    My opinion is that the fire stick out too much, so it looks kinda weird

    See at your album my comment, and if this is fire around spear, use diferent solors and smudge with circles right/left. But first give some color of fire and it variations.

    I've turned my arrow into a spear. What do you think? Is it better than the original arrow?

    Yes that seems ok but the orange glow was weird. I suggest some sort of effect going around the arrow or maybe a glow coming off of it.

    The blade is a cone. You should change that
