8x16 item icon requests (Zelda)
« on: July 12, 2010, 10:54:47 pm »
Per this discussion.

Need 8x16 icons to represent items in the inventory screen. These are 4-level grayscale, and must be drawn in a manner that the items can be placed side-by-side without bordering pixels.

Would mainly like to have icons for a harp and a tunic.

Hmm, by 'side-by-side without bordering pixels' do you mean have them be 7x16 or just draw them in a way so that they do not look like they are smashed against each other (like the shield and bomb in your picture)? I'll see what I can come up with for the tunic and harp (although the tunic might not look as sexy as in the other ones with less space to work with.)

EDIT:Here's what I got for the tunic.

7x16 is fine, or like you said, draw them so that they're not directly connected.

I like the tunic design very much. Excellent work. :)

Wow nice!
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I persobnally like it. I wonder if it would look better if the horizontal bars were dark gray?

It looks good; but I think the one that shmibs designed earlier looks a bit closer to a traditional harp design, and would be better-recognized by the player. I'm mostly going for designs that have the most legibility, or can be recognized as a traditional / conventional item. The detail is good, though.
