Calling all pixel artists


DZComposer

Recommended Posts

Are you a pixel artist?

Want to help SFO?

Here's a chance!

I need an icon for staff writer and game server admin positions to put on their account titles. Since these positions do not come with board powers, I can't give them the mod or admin icon. The problem is, I suck at pixel art. Hence, a contest!

Rules

1. The image must be yours

2. You grant SFO the right to use the image as needed.

3. The image may be a GIF, PNG, or JPEG

4. The image must be no more than 40 pixels tall.

5. The image must be no more than 100 pixels wide.

6. The image must conform to the image policy.

You may design the icon in any way you wish.

I'll give it a shot. I have an idea in mind

that might turn out to be pretty good.

Where do we post our results? Do we

post them here or are we to email them to

a certain email address?

This is my first attempt, intended

to keep on the current 'style' of medals.

Basically a 'W' medal, in three different

color sets ('cooper', 'Hyperian', 'SF-O')

By no means my last, I will try later other

things.

|EDIT|: Grammar error fixed.  :lol:

Great work DRL, and best of luck to the others who also would like to give this a try.

May I come with a suggestion of my own? Would it be a possibility to make badge for "Honorary Members"? For such induviduals who have contributed so much to the community that they deserve recognition for it. I'm thinking of previous co-owner of the site here, Mr. Krystal. Who I feel would deserve something like that.

I think I'm going to go for something that stands out a little bit from the forum position medals.

Going totally old school.

The Falco feather is my favorite part!

Will see about it too.

I prefer the one that looks different from the forum staff icons, thus far. It's less confusing.

Don't forget the game server admins.

Fureox, I would suggest changing the font of your icon to white after removing the white background.

That should make it easier to read against a dark gray or black forum background.

No offense, but I think you spelled "Writer" wrong in your medals.  Confused-2.gif

Order Acknowledged!  :lol:

|EDIT2|: Basically it is an hologram opening up

              and showing a message:

              Finished it! Does anyone wants

              different colors or anything?  :lol:

^ wow nice work DRL, i like the one of the holomessage. :yes:

Thank you!  :D,

you know, it looks rather simplistic,

but making it was literally a pain to my hand.

Notheless, I am satisfied with the result,

and should any changes have to be made

to it I will apply them.

|EDIT|: Well, I it says the upload folder

            is full or like that... O_o; apologies,

            surely most of that is my fault. :oops:

            Made a TF2 holo... Not that great, but ~7kb...

We should give these to people who got indocted in the sticked Hall of Fame topic in the lounge.

The only people who will get icons are staff members. Creating icons for "hall-of-fame" members shows elitism by creating groups to celebrate arbitrary "greatness." Elitism is not to be encouraged.

O-Kay, I still have me 'game server' icon done,

althrough I need to upload it. Um...

But the upload folder is a bit full... :|

(Again apologies, that is probably

Well most of those people aren't active. We could also make a that you can take away the badge if they show Elitism.
