    Okay, i still have my complains concerning your style to fill out an object's shape.
    In this case, you again used your "line-over-line" technique to create a filled metallic inner texture of the sword.
    I don't think that the technique matches the needs of such an object, it appears more like a useful and interesting technique for effect related drawings.

    The background fits the object and takes a small place into the foreground which is generally okay.

    My criticism concentrates on the object being existent with a rather messy texture.
    Although a sword is used and owns its scratches and crookings, it's overlaying appearance should still remind to a metallic glance which is just partially given.

    In short words: Just take a big brush to fill out the sword's shape, then shade/highlight, then add small scratches.

    I've nothing against rust. It's just a bit like a stone, not metal. And thats caused by the filling technique :/

    you might be right. so its a stony demonic sword ^^

    hm, i might update this but it can also stay as it is because i usually like to have icons as they were in the original idea.

    The overall effects and decoration are great, but the sword may needs work. Maybe make the contrast on the sword better so we can see it a little more.

    remember one thing palaslayer:

    its useless to tell people they will be better sometime if they practise.
    because everyone (should) know that.

    and dont think u are icongod, ofc they are nice, but many other ppl here @ hive do good icons too.

    so get down from your throne and fix ur icons

    I totally agree with the above person. You consider yourself really good because of the high ratings and rep you get. Stop it. You should realize that you're NOT above the average. It's just that the really good artists don't seem to submit any more icons.

    haha. you are wrong. i usually get not more than 1 rep for an icon, the quality isnt that high and the only persons submitting really good icons are bigapple90 kelthuzad and unholydobry the last three days (hope i forgot nobody) and why do you call me icongod?
    i am no. its a little childish dont you think? i might consider this spam because it is no comment on the icon.

    debode, dunno why you cant like me, i did nothing to you.

    and the average at the moment is sadly at 1-2/5

    i might be at 3/5
    ok? you should realize that the icon section suffers some heavy desease at the moment...

    and by the way those icons were nothing more then a present for the users... not for me. dumb idiot. i did not know that people get insulted fpr giving presents usually...

    you think i submit really good icons? well thx, I think that bigapple and kelthuzad are both better than me and maybe you but I do what I can, and yeah too bad crazyrussian isnt submitting icons anymore...

    on topic: I like the icon it could use some more highlighting and it would be perfect.
