Submitted by Paladon
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Hey, i know, the hand and the lightning do not really match at all.

But cheers Lio, i told ya i'd try a hand.
Since i tried around for a couple of time without a better result, i'm upload this in its current state, be sure that i am open for every feedback and suggestions.
I will definitely update it.

Don't wonder about the black space in the right, i simply moved the layers to make more parts of the hand visible.

    zombie2279: Obviously approvable quality, but I'd personally like to see some more of the lightning removed.

    Looks good , but i think the hand looks not orcish enough , looks more like a troll hand.

    4/5

    EDIT: Looks great now , 5/5 :)

    add some lightning ot the hand itself, since it is filled with power at the moment the lightning is released.

    The hand needs more shading and highlights. Lightning should look a bit more... lighting-like, I don't know how to say it. Maybe more like this: /\/\/\/

    I like the way you did the lightning but the hand needs a butt load more highlights. It's right next to the light source for Pete's sake!

    I like thats its troll related. We already have an orc casing lightning hand. If this was same, it would move its usefulness down. Like this, its awesome, and way more useful. Aldo different stile between troll and electricity could be fixed bit.

    I still give 5/5 :thumbs_up:


    EDIT: Uh, a tipo. I wrote orc instead of troll, as you can see in paladons quote below :p

    I think the hand needs a little bit more contrast with the lightning. I thought Orc hands were greener and it's half outside the picture. Maybe add a bit more movement to the lightning and sharpen it a bit.

    Nice icon though ;)

    I liked the old one better. The lightning is cleaner.
    Zigzag lightnings don't usually work with blizzard icons...
