[WIP] Skill icons

Post by Reid »

I tweaked some stuff together to make some new skill icons.

I made an XCF that will help us to keep those updated and that should also help us to make new ones. It is available here: https://gitlab.com/evol/evol-media/blob ... /skill.xcf
(The bash icon is from Irukard if I'm not wrong, I just made the shiny outine and the weird smile icon).

The smiley one is super creepy but it works so well. It has personality :P We need an actual emote version of it.

Hey there,
hoping there is anyone who wants to try with the pixels for a bit, here is a draft version of the skill icons (we need many, so we cant rely on the original TMW ones). Any comments are highly welcome. Even better if someone wants to help - I can provide an .xcf file where Icon/background/boarders are separated and some ideas for more are included.
So, here is what I have by now:

Micksha, if you have icons complete, but not added into game yet, you can push them to media repository https://gitlab.com/evol/evol-media

I like these a lot. I would maybe try a bolder outline to make each image more recognisable and distinct from the background. Otherwise thumbs up :)

Hi everybody!

Finally, I managed to prepare something to show and discuss - we have added around 50 Skills to the game already (following this: https://gitlab.com/evol/evol-docs/-/raw ... _Magic.jpg, and here is our preliminary set of icons:

(some of those are still WIP, but I may need your help to improve them).

Please feel free to comment, or even improve them if you feel like. I propose to use the .xcf in my media folder (careful, it is a bit chaotic but at least splits the circle, background and actual icons): https://gitlab.com/Micksha/evol-media/- ... 0icons.xcf

Looking forward to your comments and critics so I can further improve these.

Thanks,

-Mick

Would it be possible to use shapes to make them more distinguishable? Magic skills could be round and fighting skills could be square or something like that.

Nice work. You're evil for making that Pinkie backstabbing skill though D:
