Antennae headgear

Post by Spit23 » 11 Aug 2008, 18:03

Hi everyone. I made another headgear. I took the antennae item image and made a headgear with it. The shading is wrong, have to fix it.

Please give me some feedback!

Interesting idea. You can fix the shading by mirroring the wrongly shaded ball again separately after mirroring the whole item.

But please note that Jpeg is a very, very bad format for saving pixel art because it blurs any areas with high contrasts. Please use the PNG format instead.

Sorry, but it is too blurred to be used. It seems like you used some filter or transform function which messed it up.

The basework is solid, though.

It is still rather blurry, the finished piece should be as clear as the regular icon.

I see, you're absolutely right. I'll try to do another sharp version close to the original image.

EDIT:

I made a new version. Here it is:

EDIT:

Yes, that's how it is supposed to look.
