Icon Orc Shield Slam


Reaction score
My first attempt at something more complex than a lazer beam icon. Comments are appreciated!

It's supposed to be an angry orc smashing a poor footman in the face with his shield =)

I think the orc look kind of happy,
it looks like this one without teeth to me ---->:D
And it is a little blured to me.
Else it looks good:eek:
Shouldn't he be facing the Footman?
The problem is his arm is to streched out. He looks like he's extending his arm to the upper courner, not like he is putting all his weight behind the shield with his whole body and slaming into him. It looks like he kinda quickly brushed his shield in the courner and the footmen went flying. o_O
It adds effect =)

Anyways, they do that in the WoW icon for shield slam so that's how I got the idea for it.
I think the icon looks a little but too smooth.

Try adding some monochromatic noise to give a more Warcraft-ish feeling.

Also, it would look better without the footman, but that's just my opinion.

It would look something like this:


(Used the burn tool a little on the shield, to give it more depth)
The orc is a little blurry.

Andrew's version looks more like what you want to accomplish. :)

    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    I will have to get used to this.

    The latest news feed looks good

    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
