    I never understood that "author's permission" thing when it came to icons of custom models... Unless they made a custom texture that you literally copy/paste into your icon, I see no reason why they would have any say. More importantly, it's an honor for someone to make resources for your resource, increasing it's usefulness.

    Look's good already, but keep in mind that our Gul'dan (the one from the game) has red glowing eyes. not green.

    @Maxwell I don't eat people, what's with the fear.
    @BLazeKraze hope you could join this time, the contest misses you!
    @PrinceYaser too dark, fix light reflection that comes from the eyes, unshaded/flat teeth that stands out from the rest.
