BTNValeeraSanguinar

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Was in a rush and failed to realize the model was made by A.R. and animated by Stefan-K

But this was created since Stefan-K asked me to try pixeling one of his models, and I found some spare to make this request happen. I picked model of Valeera Sanguinar from his resources, because I felt like challenging myself to pixel a blood elf, and because it seems like a really cool agility hero for Bloodelves. I was in a hurry and didn't read the description. :(

The process was same as usual, I took screenshot of the model and resized it then color reduced it, though this time I choose to remove eyes, nose and mouths since they were too messy to work with and I just didn't care about them. I also extended the blob of her jaw a bit just to have more space to play around with the shape. Then I went on pixel polishing the blobs to turn it into a detailed icon.

Your job is good, but eyes should not be green?

Picked a palette for the green that would match the picture overall, didn't wanna go for some colors that would stand out too much. Since her hair is yellow and the color of her skin, I thought a yellow glow with green shades would fit for the eyes. I think the eyes match well with both the hair/skin and the crystal on top of her hood.

I think this icon is better with green eyes.
however I think this icon is good and my rating for this icon 5/5.

Woah really nice work. I think it's interesting that you chose to include the green emerald on her clock, because that emerald doesn't appear on all her splash art, so for me it wasn't immediately clear that this was Valeera. Not really a criticism just a thing a noticed. Amazing work man :)
