Wolfy: This image is good, now we need some sort of appropriate icon for entangle effect in the middle:

I thought Leonhard's Entangle icon was quite good too. What about a combination of the two?

Loking good!
Darkness beyond twilight,
More crimson than the blood that flows,
Lost in the depths of time,
I call upon thy name!

:shock: This looks awesome.

Yeah, it seems pretty good. Only thing is that for me it would be more appealing if the hand wasn't so centered. It seems a bit too symmetric in my opinion. Though that might be the intention. :)

Looks great, but I'd like to see the smaller version. Since it might not look so good smaller. The hand and vines may need a little more contrast in the smaller version.

I actually kind of like leonhard's entangle simply because the shadow view of a humanoid figure is less restrictive on what the target is than having a human hand.

Actually, they're both Leonhard's entangle (border by Wolfy).

The trouble with the humanoid one is that it's just not as distinct as to what's going on at the 60x60 size.

And neither icon works for Cockatrices, or Tentacles of the Deep. :)

Hmm... It seems perfectly clear to me what is going on.
edit: in fact, I would argue that it is clearer than the one with the hand!

I wouldn't want to lose that border!

Try putting the figure in the border and see how it looks.

Well, the main problem is, that runic icon's should be more... "monocoloristic".
Jetryl's example: Image

I'm working on something more similiar to this. Beside that- it look's very good.
