Well guys ...
I've been thinking on something nice for the game and decided to create a nice helmet ...
No name, can you give the name you want, give opinions and say if you liked the supposed name for you!

I suggest you read some pixel art tutorials and also our graphics guidelines.

Although the outlines of equipment should be dark, they shouldn't be pure black. This also lacks any shading whatsoever, and the yellow is probably too saturated.

Also it is drawn from a straight-on perspective. Everything in TMW should be drawn as if the viewer were at a height, looking down at a 45° degree angle on the object. Even though the playerset doesn't quite meet this, the hat should still be at as much of an angle as possible without it looking weird. To understand what I mean by this, have a look at some of the hats in-game - the Shroom hat, for example. You can see the front and the top of it, not just the front.

Lastly, a hat needs at least four frames: http://gitorious.org/tmwdata/mainline/b ... shroom.png .

I know, I just posted, does not mean you're ready!
It really is not ready, and with some tweaking will get much better!

Welcome !

Just to let you know we use PNG here, not GIF... Also note that it is way too big to fit the playersprite or to be an inventory item

This needs more than just "some tweaking".

CC is part of being an artist, you shouldn't take it personally. We are not here to attack you (other than Crush) just give you info that you might not be aware of, we understand that it might take a few revisions to get where your going.

As a side note: Take a look at Black Don for inspiration

Or even Saphy
