[WIP] Knife Icon

on: December 02, 2011, 06:20:52 am
It's been a while since I've been on the forums, and even longer since I've practiced pixels.

I'm making a knife icon for a video game. Here was my first attempt.


Then I tried to eliminate the black border in order to get more realism in the look.
Added a bit of shading and AA ?   I'm not sure if I did the anti-aliasing correctly, though.




I would like some help on how to make the knife look more real and professional? for lack of a better word.
Thanks :)

**EDIT** by the way, what happened to the forum? It looks generic..

Made an edit to the handle to make it look more like wood grain. Also a version of the knife that isn't damaged.

the knife has many colors, and the point of illumination is very strange. I made an edit improving some parts



improved the knife handle also
