We want a really smooth, high quality, polished looking icon.
We are thinking we want a picture of the skydiver falling in the sky (with maybe a plane in the background or another obstacle), but we are open to some unique and amazing ideas. We want it to be hand painted. Not the style, but the actual picture itself. We want it to have nice lighting and any other applicable special effects as well. Don't want it to look overwhelming, but just right.
We need this to look extremely good, fun, appealing, eye-catching, etc.
The game icon pictures I've attached are styles of different icons that we like a lot, and that we would like you guys to use as references in making the icon. The style of these icons is just like described above - high quality, polished, elegant and great composition. Colors are nice too.
I have also attached some screenshots from our game. These aren't fully finished yet, but I wanted you to get a look at what game looks like. Don't hesitate to make something amazing. Thank you and look forward to working with you!
