    I don't really get the arrow feeling oO

    Really not one of your better icons. No idea how you could fix it, but it all looks sorta awkward.

    Review,
    ------------------------------------
    1-Over nice idea, and creativity.
    2-"Venom" could use more vibrant colors/shades to encounter a effect were its coming off the arrow.
    3-Shading on arrow looks good, but maybe make the tip of the arrow sharper.
    4-Overall nice job, just needs re-working on the "Venom"
    ------------------------------------

    (All my recommendations to your icon, you can choose to use these or not, your choice.)
    Thanks, Army-of-pandas.

    my rating: 4/5 - recommended!
    +1p: it clearly is an arrow with poison.
    +1p: I think you did it 100% while the idea of arrow is old as heck.
    +1p: Good overall work in it.
    +1p: Since i lack skill of making icons, ill give it a 4/5 instead of 3/5.
    -1p: it lacks the poison/venom (green) abit too much. To make it a venom arrow, add more green to it.

    It doesn't need more green, he just needs to rework the green he has now and maybe make a background effect.

    Alright, i'll do a srs review..
    First of all, It doesn't really look like an arrow, more like a spear.
    Since arrow points are mostly a triangle, yeah you get my point.

    It doesn't look a lot like poison either, I'd like to see some thick green liquid on that arrow rather than under it, if you get what I mean.

    And I'd like the tip of the arrow to be more in focus, rather than the shaft.

    And Arrows, are mostly facing downwards, so making an icon with it pointing up like it does here just enhances the feeling of it being a spear.

    I recommend you to completely redo this :p

    /2 min work of random shit to give you an idea of the perspective I'm talking about

    Although the name has nothing to do with the icon's overview, disco is right but not all right. Apple could either zoom in on the object and make the point sharper and then add the effects or do what you said in the post.

    Ok...dansaDisco has a VERY good point there...

    1: it really looks like a spear...
    2: it seems like the poison would be more like a gas coming from the arrow itself but not the very end of it (the sharp spot).

    All i have to say from this point is just to mess with this icon a bit bigapple since you have so many ideas and suggestions.

    First of all it`s not arrow, it`s pike. Another thing is that poison effect is just... strange. But if you would like to fix it, I think you will have to redo whole icon.
