    We'll be giving moderation once contest is over.

    Since you already uploaded the icons, keep in mind the rule:
    ''Icons mustn't be updated once uploaded, until the contest poll is over.''

    Yes, of course.
    I have read the rules soberly, I'm finished.

    The shading in here isn't working much. Image should gradually become darker as it gets further away from the center, remember that you need to have focal point and preferably it should stand out of the rest of image, usually by highlighted area. You did apply some highlights to center, but still too subtly and it affects the overall contrast to be low compared to overly dark parts on the top.

    It features nice color transition, it would be better if the whole character was moved further to top a bit, than you would end the color transition somewhere around his red glow, and if you would make the glow stronger, it would be nicely framed with the background color transition.

    Because of placement of slime in lower part of sword, in this amount and without outline to detach it from background, the sword appears to be shaped wrongly. Other than that, it looks good, the slime is very well illustrated.

    In my opinion this one is best individual icon from contest. Colors and shapes are very nice.
