I have a game where your character can obtain a "Stun Down" Status Effect, which reduces the time your character is in hitstun. I'm currently trying to create a 12x12 icon for this effect, but I'm having trouble thinking of what could represent this icon.
To represent a "Stunned" effect, most games tend to use a dizzy swirl or stars (An example: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/Crowd_control - look down at "Stun"). I made one of these and put a down arrow on top, but with only a 12x12 space to work with the arrow was either too small or too large, making the entire image confusing and look crudely done. Additionally, this made it look like a negative effect when it is in fact a positive one.
So in short, if anyone has any ideas for how a 12x12 "Stun Down" Status Effect icon should look, please let me know. All help is greatly appreciated!
