    Repost of my take on the icons:

    THE BAD
    For example for gems, Gem of True Sight is too small compared to other gems. We see the eye instead of the gem. It becomes more like an action icon instead of item icon.

    For examples, the axe faces different directions. Maybe they can face the same direction for consistency.

    For sticks, I prefer that all of them have the same orientation. So that at one glance, I know whether to look for differences. E.g. look at broadsword and claymore, given the same orientation with sword blade pointing down, I just to have look at the sword hilt to identify items. I don't have to struggle visually with the orientations.

    For footwear, the most obvious one is Boot of Elvenskin which looks totally out of place.

    THE GOOD
    Shields is a good example of a good icon set. We see the cheap stout shield looking plain while the more expensive items look more their worth. Lastly, the Shiva Guard with its bright and intricate background suggest power and luxury.


    COLOURS
    I observe a few colour associations.
    Red = Strength
    Green = Agility (or Health as in Healing Salve)
    Blue = Intel
    Purple = Invisibility / Stealth

    Agreed.

    It looks like some cavemen's tribal creation or a monster with an open mouth.

    Shivas is not a shield, it looks like a shoulder armor

    I plan to complete all items and keep this thread updated as Valve updates the icons.
    Here we can compare and see the consistency of the items based on what type they are, not necessarily based on their class.
    The Boots of Elvenskin are more like a Vambrace of Dexterity now. Look up vambrace on Google image search.

    Would make more sense as a shinguard/leg bracer as they used to be footwear.

    But Boots of Elvenskin are Boots. They should look like one.

    Hi gatitus, guess you are right. Maybe I will move it to bodydress for the next update.
