also missing the the dragon tail for TRoW and some misc ones (UTBS ants?)... as I got my working ADSL just 1 hour ago the things will speed a bit (or not)
Thanks fmunoz. I'm currently using the generic "animal fangs" icon for the ants and cave spider. The old "fangs" attack image worked better because it was just teeth. The tongue does make the attack image look more mammalian. I noticed the standard wesnoth cave spider uses the animal fangs icon as well. So once could argue that a seperate fangs image for insects could be useful. But it's not a big issue.

I'm much happier to hear that you're working on a bola attack image. It will be really nice to have an attack image matching the other styles for version 2.0. Thanks!

This comment is an extreme nitpick, so feel free to ignore it, but it looks to me like the flame on the dragonstaff is coming out of the nozzle a very slight angle, rather then straight out. It makes the image 'sit' funny.

Can anyone else see this or am I just imagining it?
I didn't notice it when the image was first posted, but now that you mention it... yeah, it does look a bit wierd. But no worse, IMO, than the slightly wierd angle on the axe, etc.
I can be stupid too! Thus, I hate myself. ;)

Oh no, don't say that. I'll never be able to enjoy the axe icon again :P.

I had inspiration and tried to polish the dragonstuff icon a bit, but I really should drawing the remaining keep ruin parts. Anyways, I'm quite happy with the icon.

Much more dragon-like, methinks. But it is almost to the point that I can't tell it is a gu- er, 'dragon-staff'... ;)

I don't think that it is the paleness of the skin so much as the redness of the lips that looks odd. Do vampires wear lipstick? I would prefer a more colorless (less saturated and/or darker) set of lips with, perhaps, some blood dripping done one side.
yeah, it's the redness of the lips. Granted, that might have been deliberate, but here's a shot without it. Francisco gets to decide.

I really prefer the one by fmunoz, it's really clean and pretty, and it looks like a dragonstick, not a dragon. I can't really tell what is what in pekka's one, especially the eyes and mouth are much more messy IMHO.

I had a similar problem with another icon, until someone reminded me that whenever the player sees it the name will be written right next to it.
Personally I think it would be insanity to look over that pekka awesomeness.

Fist: is it just me or are the edges blurred?

I guess it's just a matter of taste then - the one by fmunoz is a lot more awesome if you'd ask me.

I'm sorry for jumping into this discussion.

I felt like retrying the paladin sword. It's not finished at all, and I need some help with the blade. (I will not bother anymore then)

First read, then think. Read again, think again. And then post!

Make it a bit smaller and shorter and you have a paladin dagger... 8)

Maybe the blade needs some more contrasts?... The holder (?) (the thing where you have the sword in you hand) is good IMO!
