Ok, he is very impressive nonetheless and please don't worry about time as I am currently quite busy so I am only looking over the current scenarios fixing the problems people have encountered.

Hope your fever gets better :D

Unfortunately, it seems that there isn't a place in mainline for resources like these at present - however, I'm certain that there are UMC authors who would value them.

And I'm equally sure that you would be able to make some icons for mainline. Find something that's lacking, and give it a shot =)

Thanks. :) Okay, anyone who wants them, just post here. I'm sure people who use the armor, boots etc icons would use these for something. And then there's the training ( is that what you would call it?) method which Under the Burning suns and Brent both have.

Maybe we should create a pack of all the attack icons rejected for mainline and upload it to the add-ons server so people will be able to just download them as a resource. I doubt there are enough attack icons at the moment for this idea to have any stability at present, though. But definitely, try out something for mainline, Telaron. Good luck. :)

That, is a very good idea.
It would also be nice if they were available on the website.
Of course, it could be an extremely bad idea for some reason that the devs pick up. :)
My spritework can be seen here.

This is an excellent idea, and would also be a good project to put up on Wesnoth-UMC-dev. Talk to shadow master about that - equally, I could probably set it up, but it's been ages since i've done anything with UMC dev, and I don't really remember how to work it...

I'll drop shadowmaster a PM sometime, though I haven't the faintest clue how to work the Wesnoth-UMC-dev either.

Here's an unshaded smaller version. The original was about 1,600 pixels by 1,000. This one is about one sixth that size.

Yep those are the only things I see wrong with it, yep definately do a more side angle if you know what I mean and they are to bright like someone is shining a flashlight on them but I think those critiques were already addressed by the people who posted before me.

Its middle area is very blurry and unclear.

The sword is shading so that it looks almost cylindrical, and there is no blood channel. Lighten the blade of the sword, gradually getting almost white as you move towards the tip. Leave a line of darker pixels down the middle of the blade to depict a blood channel. And I'd think at least some of his tail should be visible.

I love the saurian! Seems a little small due to the shield:body size ratio. The skirmishers shield has the right style, but not the right size. Maybe if you made the shield less ovaliod at the top and bottom. Is he wearing stone armor?

To be honest I really didn't give it much thought. I guess not, because stone armor would be REALLY heavy. Here's a more defined version.
