    It looks a bit (flat),

    It just lies there on the ground, veiwed from a bird perspective.

    Make it more 3d or sum.

    Please comment, rate and give credit if used. I'm still fairly new at this, so criticism is welcome.

    EDIT: Saw your comment. I see what you mean. I'll try to add more shading around the edge if I have time.

    I realize the point isn't symetrical, and it was originally a mistake.

    I'll cover it up by making the claim that it was intended to add a cutting edge.

    I know what the problem is. Without shadings and reflections - all the drawings are not life like. Plus, alot of color in 1 place is not good for WC3 icons.

    A quick drawing to show you what I mean:

    EDIT: You can use my icon to replace what you got if you want.

    Yeah, it does need more shading. I won't use that icon, but I'll re do this tonight, and post update it tomorrow along similar lines.

    Add some glow maybe, there are already a bunch of "simple" sword icons.

    Personally, i think that swords without a crazy CrazyRussion background is best. They can be used for all things, and is clean-beauty.

    Having just a dagger with a black background can feel empty, and hey, your the icon mod, not me :D

    Glow =/= CR backgrounds.
    But use search "swords" or "knife".
    New icons should offer new possibilities.

    However, shadings are the most important part to improve/add.

    I changed the shading some more, but this icon is going to stay plain. The one I'm working on right now is much more fancy that way.

    So, Updated.

    Well, super updated now. I've decided to make it look "stormy", kind of thing. Lightning ect.

    Ratings/more criticism welcome.

    It could be more pointy and the edge could be more divided into 2.

    I like your backgrounds, they always look good.
