I prefer also more natural looking Textures (Leather/Skin and Pelt for Winter ) but like it's Size even that's perhaps indeed sometimes less ideal from seeing the Screen-Contents below. Therefore my Suggestion is to add a thin golden-light Ball ("Dot") in Front of the Hand's Finger as some Kind of CrossHair for the Hand. The Hand is about locating the Cursor and the Ball about positioning the Cursor.
You made once another Hand. I made a raw Hack with to explain what I mean - I don't think I would call that ArtWork but you may get the Idea I want to express:
I think the Approach of Cloth is well but .... look this as Example:
Even the grey Texture looks promising to me -- but if you can please descrease Skin-Sub-Morphology: the Wrinkles are IMO to large. You may wonder what does this matter for the final Icon -- I don't know as well - but even wonder you took it at this or that Way -- no Idea what does it matter but its Scales are oversized and that's what I say.
Please try to other Skin-Colors. Remind that Cursor is regulary potentally most important Icon on the Screen -- don't make it Camourflage unsuscipicious but better let it shine like an Xmas-Tree. I do very often waste Time resp perform Procedures (cycle around with the Cursor) to find it quickly. The present can get found -- without extraordinary Problems -- but significant better is possible. How about putting nice Gems or soemthing like on the Glove which blink in the Light? This Idea does not origin from Favor but Aim: "What can this Hand make more suspicious? LaserSable? Lightnings? etc. " Any WoodGnome-Hand should get other suspicious Details ... perhaps light Flowers? I mean any Robin-Wood-like Protagonis ("... lived for Years in the Forest ...") should probalby get any other Hand-Icon. So you may consider several Protagonist-Types like Princess, Prince, King, Queen, Cleric, etc. If you can do more with 3D consider Portraits for Campaign-Characters: you don't have to do the Cursor-Icon matching to the Portraits but you go the opposite Way and make the Portraits matching to the Cursor.
You took any .. Ring-Thing for the Cloth. It looks anyway rather nice even I don't know what it shall be. The Colors are weak buut If the light would be or is Gold and the dark is or gets dark blue then that Color-Combination would looks IMO rather nobble. This Point in Context with below as a new Try for Cloth.
You get a good Idea that there is Cloth but it fades out letting the Arm invisible. Your Fade is anyway interesting in that Way that it seems that the Arm comes out of anything invisible .. but hard to identify when looking simply at Screen as me sees at first and second simlpy a CutOff-Arm. I would also take another Texture (OR is it even Morphology???) for the Cloth: this Way it looks rather unnatural. The Pleats are to small for simple Cloth-Fall but to large to look crincled. You omit to a add a Picture of Hand with Cloth in Icon-Size to get a better Idea how it would looks like.
Ivan the Terrible is dead .. Genghis Khan is dead .. and I do not feel well, too.
