    Due to the whole situation, I would like someone to consider making a set that contains a LEGENDARY TIE (yes, the one that you use when wearing a suit) :D

    Good luck to all participants :)

    While I lack icon-making skills myself, I'm eager to see what people have in store for this, as it seems very interesting and I can't wait to see what kind of unique sets people will create.

    Who's going to use Sindri's Royal Dwarven armor set as a base for their icons?

    Seems like a fun contest. I wanted to draw some armors, don't know if I'll finish all the icons though. I kind of wanted to make a frost set that would work well with this:

    but unfortunately, my style is still way off from Blizzard's. Might have to work on that someday.

    I might upload WIPs later, but here are the large versions for now:
