    Yeah carrion swarm :3
    Looks awesome, though I think you should add another small insect in the background, for the "Swarm" effect.

    Wat the fuck? I guess I just missed that part when I was reading it... xD

    Well... to me it looks like some strange pig-like creature that is holding some kind of knife and it's about to hit someone. :/

    The colour scheme and look of the bat were loosely based off a breed of vampire bat that have white fur (except I got it wrong, they tend to be whiter underneath and browner on top lol). I know it doesn't have the 'swarm' effect (i started adding little bats in the background but it just seemed to clutter it) because it was just supposed to be a close up of a single bat of the swarm, as it always bugged me the icon for the carrion swarm ability had some blurry looking insects in it when the tool tip said they were bats. BATS DAMN IT BATS :mad:

    Thanks for the comments tho (lol, a pig like creature holding a knife :p)

    10 days left.
    Looks good so far!

    Discipline, i like it but i also agree that you should add smaller, undefined ones in the background. Besides, bats actually look like flying pigs sometimes.

    I disagree Hawk. I like Paladon's silence icon, it just needs more contrast, and the holy light is really cool. The inferno is sux :p

    Goblin, no.
    The rules clarify that we need the .blp files of your icons, BTN and DISBTN.
    Please make an entry post.

    I decided to try to finish the Bash icon, as i cannot get any good inspiration for another one.
    Dunno if this looks good. I still have alot of shading to do, but does the overall picture look good enough?

    It's bash again.:xxd::xxd:

    EDIT: Added a newer WIP, where i made the hammer glow as in the MK's bash animation.

    Well I don't like the concept (looks like a murder thingy rather than a simple bash xD) but I guess with some shading and lights it'll look good.

    your drawing is goddamn awesome! if u want it to be an aura I think it would be better to make some glowy smoke coming out of his mouth or some glow thingy around his face...
    well, it already looks great as it is, and suggests some kind of aura as well...so...i don't know, do what you should, but don't let the drawing lose this quality.
