The poses are great, but it looks like a 16-colour image to me... I guess with some additional shading, the icon would also fit better with the other great icons you and Nol did.

Hawkgirl is a reworked/resized game sprite. This and several others I have posted need to be "improved". I an do that now, but that kind of stuff - which I find totally satisying - breaks me when it comes to doing databases/scripting. I can get deep into one at a time. ;)

Related to an earlier post - I listed the archtype packages that a PC can pick from (as well as creating her own character completely from scratch), but I didn't list the classes...

PC classes:
Adventurer, Champion, Guardian, Investigator, Mystic
NPC classes:
Agent, Assassin, Burglar, Criminal Mastermind, Criminal, Cultist, Journalist,
Lackey, Mercenary, Ninja, Police Detective, Police, Private Eye, Scientist, Soldier,
Special Forces, Spy, Super Villain, Technician, Thief, Thug, Vigilante, Villain

Hawkgirl looks great. Like you, I am building most of these icons from game sprites. Right now, my focus is on filling empty icon slots. We can worry about having a consistent style to the artwork later.

I certainly agree. I guess my icons (I will surely make a few) for Super Hero PCs will also have a slightly different style.

Any you do will be greatly appreciated.

I also discovered this weekend that I am going to need lots of spell art...

I do have plans to go back and touch up some of the icons I am doing.  I am using a lot of game sprites, converting them to DC. There are great "recent" marvel game sprites, not so much for DC, though there are lots of older sprites.

Wow, Nol. Great work. :D
These icons are all fantastic. And you have now finished off the Marvel heroes. That is a big milestone. 8)

I have a series of marten icons which I could easily modify into human, the results looking like the examples below. Would that be okay for self-made heroes?

Nice icons. :)
However you imagine superheroes is how your icons should look. ;) My first thought was that they should maybe be taller to match with icons that Nol Drek and I have made, but then I thought about it some more and think that we should indeed include icons of different sizes (I mean the figure size, not the image size).

I like the special effects for those icons. Icon49 looks like a Super Speedster. You could definitely use these for create-your-own heroes. Super Heroes tend to come in all shapes and sizes.

I also thought about the size issue. Some of my other characters are taller - I think there are around a dozen which can be used for super heroes. I will also do some characters from scratch.

Some more modified martens/helmettigers...

The female Ninja is based on the female Monk I posted elsewhere. Some icons are probably rather useful as villains... :)

Sweet! :D I really like the big one.

These are great. Nol's comment about the effects reminded me that I forgot to mention that I liked that, too. In fact, I am working on Black Canary and Zatanna icons that will have effects because I like what you id with them. ;)

So, here is what I am thinking about doing...
All of these icons andd any ones still yet to be posted that are not for NPCs will go into a pool. From that pool I will choose some (don't know how many that means yet) to be in the PC icon pool available at character creation and the rest will be included for use as the designer sees fit. Also, if there is one that is included that I don't put in the PC icon pool, the player will be able to change to other icons in the Resources folder.

I did not know Black Adam until now. Interesting...

One thing that jumped to my mind some minutes ago is that I should also do portraits for the characters you chose. If it is alright with Uatu, I could perhaps do it based on some of his portraits...
