Hey, this looks rather cool! Looks like videogame art, or a logo.

The only issue I can find is that the metalic frame maybe would look better without the black outline (since the rest doesn't have one). Then again, I'm not sure what I'd do.

Thanks, I've spent ridiculous amount of time considering my usual inclination towards graphic works and I was quite surprised to actually finish it.

It's used inside a web page that looks brownish and the outline is mostly meant for that. It has become taller too in the final version ([link]).

Ah, that looks rather nice indeed, good job :)

But so you don't consider yourself fit for this kind of design work? Or is it unpleasant?

I actually like it but it's still hard to get myself polish an icon or some other graphic element until the end. For example, I can tell that from my POV the shield is polished just right; but that's probably the only work so far that I could do that properly. Like written in the description it took me around 6 hours straight to finish it off, usually I'm getting bored after 3-4 so, uh :) But I think this might go away with time as I don't have problems coding for 8-10 hours without standing, for example.

Your icons look better in this respect.
