    Kimbo: I think you need to do more freehand than just draw a helmet on him, and as stated it is blurry. Try to add some highlights/shine to the helmet to help solve this?

    Sin'dorei300: The helmet needs improvement, as proper shading\highlights and blurriness reduction.

    17:22, 8th Mar 2014
    Sin'dorei300: Improve the shading on the helmet to look like metal and make the icon clearer, and we'll see.

    09:29, 22nd Mar 2014
    Sin'dorei300: The helmet needs stronger highlights and the horns are too dark.

    12:04, 27th Mar 2014
    Sin'dorei300: U colored white the whole helmet instead of adding stronger highlights where it's needed. Google some helmets and metal textures to see how to shade properly.

    08:54, 30th Mar 2014
    Sin'dorei300: It's a bit better but it still doesn't look like metal. Look up to some tutorials on how to draw metal textures.


    20:30, 30th Mar 2014
    Sin'dorei300: Approved, although there's space for improvement.

    hmm...
    the shapes look kinda bad and it seems a little blurry. But its not bad and I guess it could be useful in some cases.
    3/5 from me

    The blurriness definitely needs working, right now it's just the WarCraft III icon with with a low quality helmet.

    It looks a lot better but your drawing skills could still use some improvements, don't worry though practice hard and it will come. ;)

    Thanks :p
    I'm kinda limited by my mouse too ^^ I've never been able to draw very well with a mouse :(

    Edit: decided to remove the custom beard, didn't really look very good anyway.

    I made a new helmet from scratch, and zoomed out a bit to make room for the horns.

    The horns need some work mostly, but I thought this was a good update for now :p

    Flip the icon and maybe change the background to something blue or alliance-like.
    Right now it looks dull.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I added an arm and some blue background color. What do you think?

    Edit: also gave him an open mouth :p

    It looks better now, could also be used as a warcry icon.
    But, I have another suggestion. Maybe lighten the horns and the helmet a bit? I took a look at your model and it had a more silver-ish tone than what you have in mind in this icon.

    Hmm, good point. Maybe I'll try to make the lighting match my Footman icon a bit better (icons should fit in with eachother more than they should resemble the matching unit, imo).

    Quitely impressive for the face, but the helmet does need a highlight. Its pretty useful for WCI Units

    The texture of the helmet doesn't look good, though not as metal. Try to learn how to draw metal textures (tutorials, see icons representing metallic armor ...).
