[REQ]~! URGENT !~ skill icons

Post by Kage » Wed Sep 16, 2009 2:34 am

Before we can launch the 0.0.30 client we need skill icons for our new skill window!

The skill icons need to be 32x32, png, and ASAP

The skills needed are

Basic:

Code: Select all

Party
Trading
Emote
Magic:

Code: Select all

General
Life
War
Transmute
Astral
Nature

If you have a idea go for it. Again this is a urgent request.

Hi,

Here is a first try for the magic tab.
Not sure they are all understandable (especially the "general" one).

I was thinking what style the icons would need to be in. Spells might look good as scrolls and other skills might look ok as buttons. I took a shot.

Well that is one idea, how ever, this is purely for eA, so we can go with one style for TMWServ and one for eA

Good start. General magic is the over all magic that rains over all the schools, though I would be fine with a arcane style icon.

So, I may find something else for the General Magic icon.

Any suggestions to improve/modify the others ?

Hi,

IMHO, I like them as they are.

Even the general one.

The look and feel gives something very professional.

BTW, even if we decide to use those graphics, we still need ones that match the style of trading, party, and emote.

I like them, very nice and very creative. I've made a few changes though, I hope you like it.

Mhh, I m divided.
Yeah, I like them and they merge better with the GUI. :)
On the other hand, the window seems a little dull without colors, compared to the other windows of the GUI (best example is the Inventory) that do contain a lot of colors :? . (That may be good to have a preview of the overrall gui to see if it's not too inconsistent ?)

EDIT : i've just forget : All icons are still visible except the Nature magic one. Hard to say it is a tree, i think. Reds/orange pixels helped to understand it was a tree. So, maybe you should raise the contrast between the leaves and the trunk ?

Here are other versions of the General Magic icon (yeah I was not satisfied of it). The first was another attempt, the second is the one I m satisfied with.

Not really inspired for it but i ll try out the basic skills tab

Very torn as well. Nice work void. I am leaning toward muted color, though. Even if you can't tell what the picture is, we can generate our own meanings for purpose of the game. I also want to use Adamaix's font! It hearkens back to old snes style.

Void, keep the original magic button and finish the set (trade, party, emote). Then, Adamaix can alter those as well and we can have two full sets to compare and choose from. Perhaps colored vs. muted can both be used to represent something later on (perhaps the button becomes colored when you have points to add and are able to add to the skill, etc)

The golden ring is the one that best suits the icons in my opinion.
But I'm not too keen on the icon inside, of course representing something "general" could be a bit hard, I'd go for some special effect, like a magic rain or something resembling an aura.
