I finally decided to finish reworking all the skill icons to make them look all about the same. I'm especially thinking of the size of the image, of the diameter of the outline circle, of the chosen colors, of the overall style, etc...

Important notes:
  • If these icons get accepted, I volunteer myself to make a commit replacing the current icons with mine.
  • I am not the only author of this work. I stole some work from other pixel artists of The Mana World.
  • When you do not see any icon somewhere, it simply means that the icon doesn't exist currently in game, or that it hasn't been improved compared to the previous version.
  • I strongly am against coloring the golden outline circle to separate icons in different sections, it simply looks really bad.
  • All my icons are 32x32 pixels and there are not any single wandering pixel in the icon.
  • Old=Currently. WIP=When I thought I was done. FND=Changed the outline circle according to Lizandra's comment.
  • As you can see, I made the Raging Skill icon, it is the one with the red background and the sword in the middle. Having an entire sword in the icon doesn't look as good as the one I made. I tested quite a lot of sword. Afterall, that is a matter of taste.
  • The Golden Ring, which is in fact the skill icon outline, can be pushed too, just to make sure it doesn't get lost over time on my computer or on the forum. Like that, when another skill is made, we can take it and create the icon that will look basically similar to the other ones.
  • I strongly think it is better to have icons that all look about the same.

Looks much better, good job :D

I do have my doubts about the face (its supposed to be a face right?) icon with blue circles in it. Looks more like a finger thumb to me. Removing the body made it even worse :? The shoe icon can use some improvement to.

But overall it's a very good improvement.

I for one agree that using a single ring for these icons brings them a unified harmony that was not there before...good job!

Please note that it was Modanung who made the new skull: http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... 72&start=0
Var helped me fix the colors, he did most of the job in fact.
Here is the last version.
