An icon I made for an ongoing project, my first actually.

    On the revenant model, you can see the skull atop of the shield has a small bone horn. That's this, though I may have drew it a bit too big.

    I think more contrast and some dark purple colors for shadows would be nice! Just my thought:

    Skull looks flat in my opinion, you could try to improve the shadings on them.
    Try sharpen up the edges of your object, I think in that way they will look less cartoony.
    Some rough example here:

    @PrinceYaser > Yup, I tried different degrees of contrast but I thought it hindered some of the shading, I prefer it the way it is. Feel free to adjust the contrast if you prefer though.
    @San > That's fair, I'll see what I can do when I have the time.

    For now the skull and its horns look very flat, do look up for some reference if you have trouble on shading. e.g.:

    Good luck on this. We need more "toggled" icon sets, especially for models that have shields (ooh, icon contest idea?...)
