Horde-Themed Items

This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
Made a pack of "Horde-exclusive" icons for a map I'm working on, thought someone else might find them useful.

All icons in the bundle are edits of different original Warcraft III icons and were made through direct-size editing.
The absence/removal of magic glow around items is purposeful - I wanted to make these items look less magical and make a focus on decorations - bandages, teeth, chains, feathers, etc.

The list of icons:

  • OrcAmulet - the idea was to create a "Dragon Fang Amulet", and a fang in Vampiric Aura was a perfect base;
  • OrcBanner - the original icon was not only just a screenshot, but also depicted the Blackrock clan symbol instead of the Horde one;
  • OrcBannerBlackrock - a version of OrcBanner for Blackrock clan, just in case;
  • OrcBattleAxeSimple - an upgraded version of the original battle axe with focus on decorations;
  • OrcBattleAxe - an upgraded version of OrcBattleAxeSimple;
  • OrcBraceletSimplest - an orcish version of the standard ring icon, "Bracelet" instead of "Ring" was chosen to match the Horde theme;
  • OrcBraceletSimple - an upgraded version of OrcBraceletSimplest;
  • OrcBracelet - an upgraded version of OrcBraceletSimple, the teeth are also the reason why the item is called Bracelet and not a Ring;
  • OrcCoin - a different coin exclusively for the Horde;
  • OrcHorn - simple edits to make the original horn match the style;
  • OrcPickAxe - simple edits to make the original pickaxe match the style;
  • OrcPotionFoul - temporarily corrupts the owner, making him stronger;
  • OrcPotionFoulSmall - the removal of the glow was made to match the style of OrcPotionFoul;
  • OrcPotionRage - makes the owner to "fall into madness" - applies frenzy effect;
  • OrcPotionRageSmall - the removal of the glow was made to match the style of OrcPotionRage;
  • OrcScroll - the only item in the bundle with the magic glow;
  • OrcShieldSimple - an upgraded version of the standard shield with a red cloth banner;
  • OrcShield - an upgraded version of OrcShieldSimple with golden rivets and the Horde symbol;
  • OrcSkull - a simple glow removal and some small corrections to match the style and to be a downgraded version of the original skull.

They're still very dark for me, but that varies from different brightness/gamma setting of each person. That being said, do avoid using plain black/grey for textures as they tends to blend in with the dark background and will usually cause your icon...

    This is really awesome! I love how you edited the old icons to a point they are recognizable but have a new flavor to them.

    Excellent bundle, really useful for Orc themed maps. It fits perfectly with Warcraft III style and that's important. Keep going, I hope to see more of your work !

    Very cool bundle, my favorites are the coin, scroll, horn and battle axe. The color palette of these works very well with the orc UI.

    Very useful resources, but the Simple Axe' handle and the Simple Bracelet is so dark it blends with the background.
    I suggest you to at least increase the visibility of them to keep up with the quality of other items.

    Done! I tried to make them even brighter, but ended up with gray colors instead of intended black, so I had to go back a few steps. Also made some edges a bit brighter to contrast with the background.

    That being said, do avoid using plain black/grey for textures as they tends to blend in with the dark background and will usually cause your icon to be visually monotone.

    Good works.
