    Phoenix Trial #5
    Contest Theme: Hero Ability Icon Replacements

    Your aim is the creation of at least 4 icons featuring a replacement for Blizzard's icons for hero abilities.
    You are not limited to one hero you choose, there's just one condition:
    Each icon should be a possible replacement for an ability icon from a Warcraft III RoC/TFT hero.
    Come up with original ideas and create your own icons.



    Examples:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Starfall Blizzard Resurrection Water Elemental



    Contest Rules And Conditions
    • All icons must adhere to the established icon rules.
    • Active and disabled versions of all icons are required.
    • No plain screenshots (or shallowly modified) icons are permitted.
    • The icons must be made specifically for the contest. No previous works are allowed.
    • Blizzard icon naming conventions must be followed: BTNAttack*.blp etc.
      Example: DISBTNHoldPositionBlackDoom.blp
    • Works in progress (WIPs) of the icons are encouraged as they keep the contest active.
    • The icons must be physically attached to a post when complete. (.blp files only!)
    • An in-game screenshot must be included with all submissions.
    • Judges may not participate in the contest.
    • No irrelevant, non-constructive or off-topic posts will be tolerated in this thread.
    • You must be able to provide a 256x256 image of the icons base image to be checked for authenticity, if you work with other sizes, you have to provide at least 2 work-in-progress (wip) pictures.

    Contest Prizes And Winnings
    • First Place: 45 reputation points and a special award icon
    • Second Place: 30 reputation points
    • Third Place: 15 reputation points


    Contest Judging And Voting
    • 2 Judges and one public poll decide the winner.

    • Judging Criteria:
      Creativity The icons' originality and uniqueness are vitally important. 30%
      Blizzard feeling & Theme Icons should be executed in such a manner that they can be implemented in a Warcraft map, compliment other Blizzard icons and replace the existing ones. 30%
      Technical Note The quality of the icons is the most important thing (throwing a lot of elements in a 64x64 image will usually look crowded). 40%
    • 75 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 25 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.

    Shamefully, I won't be able to participate, but good luck to all the contesters. Our iconers always succeeded in maintaining quality, I'm quite sure this won't be any different. Give 'em hell, boys and girl <3.

    I'm in, I guess. The only issue I have is that I don't have Wc3 currently installed, but I can always get the original blizzard icon concepts from someone.

    Serious competition. Icon contests never cease to amaze me. I'm curious to see what you'll come up with.

    I'll give it I try, seeing how I suggested the theme :). A month is a lot of time, and the worst thing that could happen is that I could get more familiar with photoshop.

    Wip for my Animate Dead replacement.
    [​IMG]

    Well, I think the foreground is nearly done already.
    I can provide a non-coloured (earlier) wip as well, in case if someone is asking :p

    Shouldn't Animate Dead guys look more like zombies? Not that it matters though :eek:
    Looking very good so far :D

    And here is one WIP of my entangling roots icon [​IMG]

    Yeah, but this is before they are animated. I am inspired by the undead "RoC" campaign where Arthas revives the dead from a pile of bones. Zombies would be..uncreative ;P

    Xerex, looks interesting so far, it appears partially blurred but i guess you are going to work on that.

    Snap, let's see how its going. May i suggest adding a shrivelled rose instead of a healthy one?

    EDIT: Opinions?
