New Forum Icons

Post by Sheep-Lord on Tue Dec 29, 2009 11:27 am

Not to offend anybody or anything, but the new icons are a tad... bland, don't you think? It's also hard to tell the difference between new posts and no new posts right away...

I've made some of my own; you may use them, or not, doesn't matter to me. I'm merely emphasizing my what would be better IMO.



I'm at a loss towards what should be the popular images, however.

I used different colors for each one, to help out figuring what it is.
Yellow: No new posts
Red: New posts
Blue: Sticky
Gray: Important

I've also created them from scratch, and have not used bits and pieces from other sprites. This can make it more personal.

Just a thought; whatever you choose to do with the icons, I'll live with.

I think a cross between the two would be best. I really like the gears in Habster's.

I seem to be getting a mixed response on the new icons. Half of the people love it, while half hate it.

I do like your icons better than mine TBH...

Perhaps I should make a poll on this?

Sorry I have started more of a commotion than intended... All I asked was to have a tiny bit more difference between no new posts & new posts, and threw some other suggestions. I'm only an underling, you can just lock this thread and pretend anything I've typed doesn't exist.

Don't get me wrong, the new icons are nice looking. I just like to sprite a lot, and while I'm not expert on the matter, I thought I might share what little experience I have. Again, sorry... Sad

No commotion. This is good... maybe we will come up with something EPIC, no?


I meant locked on your icons... the way the locks are around the bag's neck.



No need to be sorry. Wink

I would like Habster's better if he changed the color scheme for each icon so we know whats new, etc.

I love these though, in the future we can have a poll or someone can make one and we send it around to all the good photoshoppers or gimpers and they improve on them a little.

I like Sheep-lord's icons, they have better contrast that Habster's. I like both but Sheep-lord's seems more practical.

General consensus tells us people like Habsters or a combination of both. We will work together to create something Habsterish and Sheepish to make the best icons eva!

I don't use either for sprite/pixel art. All the advanced features get in the way... GraphicsGale is perfect for the job. It's simple all around, easy to pick up previous colors you've used, and all sorts of other things that makes spriting a whole lot easier. Best of all, it's free, well there is a purchasable version, but the options they give don't help towards sprite/pixel art. Smile

Here's what I propose.

We take Habster's basic disign and the gears inside. We add sheep's 'locks' to the locked ones, since there is no arguing that it's cool Smile We also change either the gear or the bags' colors to show the thread's status.

In short- same basic shape, including gears, added sheep's locks, changed some colors.

Anything else?

err, the shape needs some work, it is a little rough. If someone could smooth it out a bit...

everything else sounds great!

Sounds good to me.

Let's see... Don't be so eager to draw a long straight line. A curvier line may be achieved by smaller, more frequent lines. If you look at my sprites, they gradually build, adding a tad bit more of pixels each time. If it doesn't look right the first time, just re-work it until it has a nice curve... Hope my advice helps you Habster. Smile

I tried to make the bags look a little bit less blurry:



EDIT: Now that I think of it, that bag does look kind of ugly...

Lol, it looks better now, but its basic shape maybe we could all take some time and rework...

How bout all of us that are good with imaging editing programs meet about these and maybe they will be changed from a bag to something else.

Probably not, graphics for the forums are a lot easier in an image editing program. I have tried before, it is tough to get the right shapes you want.
