[WIP] Iconset Refresh

Post by i » 13 May 2008, 11:53

I have done some minor changes in currently used icons. New version is already on SVN.

Any constructive criticism?

Definitely a huge improvement (I had noticed how awful those old ones looked). Perhaps the are a little blurry? Or maybe they just seem that way next to the old ones with their very bold black lines.

They may look a bit blurry because of lower contrast on edges and new shadings and shadow. I redrawn 13 icons today. And I think that they fit game a little bit more than previous ones ;)

I like the new versions, good work! But I think the blade of the short sword should be longer, it looks unnatural to me like a malformed dagger.

That is why it is called a Short Sword.

Of course it's a short sword, but in reality there is no short sword with a hilt as long as its blade. It also shouldn't be as long as the "normal" sword. I made a alternate version for it.

You did medium sword then ;)
Short sword should stay cute and kawaii IMO ;P
It has wide and short edge. Opposite to dagger which should have thin edge.

That's why I called it "malformed dagger" and not "dagger" :wink:

I just think that it doesn't really fit in the concept, cause every "stronger" weapon looks "stronger" too. Except the short sword, it looks like the most harmless weopon in game in my opinion. The most harmless weopen (the knife) also should have another item I think, it's too big and looks (because of the size) too brutal.

A-Bomb doesn't look really stronger according to it's size ;) Same as H-Bomb :P But I understand your conception. We could make it longer, but only a little, 2px max
