    1/5 seems a bit harsh.

    It is most definitely NOT a flaming axe, just an orange one.
    Looks decent to me from looks perspective. Ofc, my art specialization is almost non-existent, I just see a shiny or not...

    Usefulness ? Not as a weapon, I am not entirely sure who would go around walking with an orange axe...
    Could be used for some sort of Blacksmithing, like put metal in furnace >> take out piece of hot metal >> start hammering into axe >> turn it into this icon >> ??? >> profit

    Description is just a killer.

    I'd say 2/5
    Would hold on giving any ratings out for the moment.

    regards

    Looks like an unfinished heated treatment before quenching the axe head

    I honestly don't know why I still spending my time trying to keep hive alive in memory of peoples who aren't longer here.

    Some Blizzard ability icons doesn't has material differentiation, they are just monochromatic, this way I tagged "Spell/Ability".

    The light definitely doesn't behave this way on the plastic material. This should be taken in consideration, before comments that I couldn't describe otherwise, unless inexperienced comments.

    I'm sure my platic axe, has more techinical elements than mostly of 1/5 icons.

    Oh, really?

    And please, don't be so proudful. It's counter-productive behaviour for cummunity. Try to compare your axe to others in Icon Section and you will realise that your one really aren't that great as you are trying to prove.
    Also, from my experience, you do not pay any attention to comments of reviewers, so rating is a acceptable tool to draw your attention.

    First of all I haven't asked you to compare your Icons with mine - I am not that prideful, and do not count myself the best artist on Hive. All that I was saying to you, to compare your Axe, and other really good Axe Icons examples that you can find in Icon Section.

    For an icon reviewer, Maxwell, you seem to be a bit rude. Instead of launching "direct attacks" towards the author, you could have simply suggested him what improvements that icon needs. Doing that, kindly, btw.

    Using rating to make author update his work is a not productive behavior in a creative community either.

    Because users are free to ignore or disagree with given reviews. For you it should be irrelevant whether they'll accept it or not, your only concern should be making sure that reviews contain constructive criticism upon which icon may be improved. When it happens that author doesn't accept review, you don't push them, you either approve or reject icon, based on its quality.

    Also don't compare works to show that someone's icon is better or worse, do it to give ideas to author on how certain aspect can be made in a different way, shading for example. But then it needs to be explained why comparison is being made.

    I don't think any legit drawn icon deserves 1/5 rating. And based on quality, this icon deserves more than 1/5 or 2/5 rating.

    I have compared works to show, that his Icon miss some things - for example axe sharpness. Or better hightlights that are common for metalic material.

    You could have come up with the rating, after he did the improvements :) By rating it instantly 2/5 on his first upload, will surely demoralize him a bit and might not work to improve it :/

    Rating is the thing that can be changed anytime it is needed. As long as this icon do not break any rules it will be approved, so the rating is the last and main thing that can show my impression from it - this icon need improvements.

    You misunderstand me. I don't say you don't have to rate it, I just pointed out that would have been nice to do that after he did the improvements. For him feels different, trust me.
