    I think shading is too dark.

    @Kola, I think you should change some things about portrait.
    -It is not centered and leaves some space, that makes the icon unusual.
    -Masks at icon and on model are for a different face shapes. At icon, chin is more forward.
    -Eye holes dont have any glow and I think you should keep that fact in mind.
    -Mask color at icon differs too much from color on the model.

    Current State
    67chrome's Sentinel Watcher Skin Current Iconset Preview
    [​IMG] [​IMG] Twilight Blast: Destroys a random positive buff on an enemy, temporarily reducing it's movement speed, and stealing 25% of damage resistance for the duration of the curse. Damage Resistance can go bellow zero, and applies only to spells and attacks of this Hero.
    [​IMG] Spectral Sight: Permanently increases range of view at night. When activated, blocks and limits vision of all enemy heroes to 300 range around them, while allowing Chreana to view all enemy heroes for the duration of Spectral Sight. Invisible units are not affected.
    [​IMG]Desecration Strikes: Passively increases attack damage during the night. Whenever the Moonguard Sentinel attacks an enemy with her courage-crushing blade, she steals damage resistance from it. When damage resistance gets bellow 50%, every attack or spell against that target deals double damage. Every unit has it's damage resistance counter, which resets to normal value after 3 seconds of taking no damage from Chreana.
    [​IMG] Shooting Stars: Chreana calls upon the twilight energy, causing an eclipse that blocks the sun for 10 seconds, and unleashes a wave of falling stars to damage enemies in front of her. Each star implodes on impact, dealing AoE damage and stackably reducing damage resistance of affected enemies.

    @Apheraz:
    Very interesting style. The first icon reminds me of the undead Summoning ability (Acolyte).

    I'd advise you to work on the elf's ear in the second icon. It's really strange looking, like the ear of a rabbit.

    Don't all Night Elves have rabbit ears? Wait a second... Humans... And rabbits... *realizes something naughty, shocks and refuses further discussion*

    Will fix it, currently I'm thinking about Hero Icon ;)

    The hand in the first is rather off.
    I like the passive one.
    The last is to heavily outlined for my taste and I agree with I3lack Death.

    Some opinions..
    @PeeKay, I think the "Breaking smash" icon's color scheme doesn't fit too much to the other 3 icons (not including the portrait),since it's scheme is warm colored rather than cold IMHO, other than that,all of them seem epic.

    @JollyD, the shadings are a bit too dark,but good job in keeping the gnoll feel to it

    That's way too bright. Lower the brightness, create a new layer and add highlights. You'll get a much better result this way.

    @Apheraz
    The hand in your first icon looks like rubber, way too flexible. If I was you, I'd take the ingame Summoning icon of Acolytes as a reference, since it features almost the same gesture.
    And I agree with M0rbid about the thick outlining. Make it thinner, that should do the trick.

    I like em! but i would make the cup a little bit back from his mouth, it looks too close at the moment, make it not touching his mouth and the 'Beer' or whatever is in it too poor towards his mouth . Maybe some splash effects around his mouth also. indicating that he is drunk in some from

    Kola's icon set is very wacraft-ish, nice work.

    I'm not much time to work. And the date is not very good for me, unfortunately.
    I'll try to work all the icons.

    drink ale - good idea but not realy good execution; choosen angle don't shows clearly what happen on the icon, so, at least, try define more the beards and cup. I thought it was a hammer or maul, untill i readed a name. :>
