    That wrench does not look like it is made out of copper, more like chrome something. Waaay to shiny to pass as copper.

    You should get rid of the gold trim on the back, it makes the cushion look to flat. I'm curious to know what theme you are going for with that.

    That icon looks all right, but the actual mace looks a little plain. I'd recommend going past the cube on a stick idea for your next icons and try something a little more interesting. Here are some pictures of maces and warhammers (and an axe) that were created in medieval Italy :D

    Anyways, here is what I've got so far...

    Armor itself looks nice, but the glow really ruins it for me.

    Yep, the background distracts too much attention.
    The plates are good nonetheless.

    agreeing. the BG looks too intense and distracts the attention away from the main objects. try darkening the BG or toning down the sparks(?) a bit.

    its a mage theme.

    but now that i think about it... i might want to restart and do a Narcainian Theme >:D

    ok guys, i need some serious criticism from you and if you tell me what you dont like, also say how i could improve the icons.

    maybe you could also chose the 4 icons you like best?

    Palaslayer: I like all, but just.... In my opinion, this is what I think:

    Warden - Looks very nice. The best of the ones you've made for this competition, you should not touch it more.

    Demon Hunter - 1st: The shape of the blade is nice, and the icon is awsome. Tho, the glow could (IMO) be a bit more "Sharp", looks a bit slimey and round.
    2nd: I know that many people like this icon. Well, I've seen you do better, it looks better than average, but I think you have more to give :thumbs_up:

    Druid of the Talon - 1st: Nice! Looks like Blizzards "Claws of Attack" (Which is not bad). The fingers look a bit too cartoony, but still they are also very well-made.
    2nd: Awsome aswell. I really like this one, though (Lol) I guess it's not much of an item, but that's up to the judges, for it's great!

    Priestess of the Moon - 1st: Looks very nice aswell, but it looks kind of steelish and plain. But the glow in the background is awsome.
    2nd: I really don't see what this is. The shape of the item is unclear.

    This is just fo "perfection". I think all of your icons are totally awsome and should deserve 5/5 ratings, so don't get me wrong! :)

    I think. Warden, Demonhunter weapon, & Druid staff are the best ones.
    But I dont really like the PotM icons.

    I would pick the Night Elf Warden's Icon and both of the Demon Hunter icons Followed by the Claws.

    The priestess bow could stand to have more color variation, and from what I remeber it has spikes on it, which could look pretty cool if implemented into the icon. Other than that, the warden and demon hunter icons are my favorite, the claws are pretty nice, and I can't really tell what the other two icons are supposed to be. The druid wooden thing/keeper hand/staff could be a little clearer in what it is supposed to be. I really have no idea what the second priestess icon is supposed to be :(

    But I'd say the warden icon, demon hunter icons, and druid claws. If you work on the bow and nature icons some more they could be worthy candidates as well :)

    I've been working on icons a bit wrench icon gave me some problems trying to find right color, so i need feedback which one looks better, also i did bolts icon give me some feedback there too.

    palaslayer first 3 icons are pure win, i would sugest you use first 3 and make another icon maybe wardens halm or something like that. Btw what is that last icon tyrandes hand of star fall :) ?
