    Nice, but the flying courier looks too similar to the regular courier. Maybe you should zoom out on it to show the wings more (like the original icon) to make it more obvious. I like your gem and the wards look nice too. The regular courier is good too, it looks a bit less "cartoonish" than the original icon.

    I think goggles and wings along with a title "flying courier" makes it pretty obvious by itself
    I dont like that zoomed out look that original icon has because icons are very small so distance shots looks bad and unrecogniseable.

    Yes, but TBH I wouldn't be looking specifically for those tiny goggles and out of focus wings in the middle of a teamfight or something.

    EDIT: I'm so stupid. I just realised that nobody would be looking at a flying courier icon in a teamfight, or in ANY sort of "fast paced action thing" that would require the player's utmost concentration. So yeah, +1 to the new flying courier. I don't like the blurred one though. I prefer my icons sharp and crisp.

    They are pretty good.
    I like the old-style gem, and think your version is a good upgrade.
    The flying courier looks too similar to the regular version however.
    Doing a great job Valve!
