As I already said, I think it's a bit too flamy. :wink:
This icon let me think about shooting a fire arrow, but that's not what the skill is about.

I'm just trying to get a better icon than the focusing skill one that I posted. An edit of my focus skill icon would be cool instead of the flamy icon I posted.

The other icon can be used anywhere, it can maybe inspire people.

The arrow isnt shooting fire, its in a ring of fire. its a focused item in fire. the ring of fire is used in many rituals, and since focusing a certain skill is like a ritual i put the arrow focused in the ring of fire.

And Ali-G what the hell did you do to my arrow icon you cant even tell what that is.

ChefChelios,
I thought about a magnifier already too :wink: , but in my opinion, it's a bit mundane.

Lien,
I'm not sure if it is a good idea to use the Yin-Yang-Symbol, since it has its own cultural context and philosophy behind it.

But I like the style with the person with closed eyes in front of the background. Could you change the background to something more general?

I like this one. As an alternative to the yin/yang I will try to make it but I am not quick with this sort of thing. But a circle, cut into 4 each corner is 0%, 25%, 50%, 100% black and a circle in each corner with its opposite. Same sentiment of yin/yang but I have not seen it anywhere.

But I admit that this is pretty difficult.
Maybe something with lots of lines meeting in the middle?

Chika-Maria that did produce some mind altering effect but I was thinking of more plain lines. It's early I'll try tonight.

Just a rough edit of what is above. Something like this:
