Very Large (25x50) Chess Sprites
« on: November 21, 2011, 06:19:13 pm »
I need some chess sprites in 3 color gray for my title screen. I meant to add these a long time ago, but I never got around to it.

For the actual pictures, they need to be about 25x50 (if you've ever played my chess game, they need to fit on the sides) and they need to be in the colors, dark gray, light gray, and white, with a black background.

You can make whatever piece you want as long as it's not a pawn, and preferably it should be the white piece. I'll need two different pieces.


Also, if it means anything to you, I hope for this program to become quite popular. (TI-Chess is in the toplists on ticalc.org, so since this is roughly equivalent on the 84+ scene, we should expect a similar result.)

Edit:
   I am working on adding them myself, but I suck. I am not artistic at all.

You can build a statue out of either 1'x1' blocks or 12'x12' blocks. The 1'x1' blocks will take a lot longer, but the final product is worth it.

Does it need to be that detailed, or can it be a simpler design?

It can be simpler, but these things are huge. So either make it look real, or make it clipart style.

Ok, simpler, this is impossible to make pictures this small.

Edit2:
   Here's what the photopshop one looks like. The bar has been set low this time.

Looks good, we'll have to see what it looks like after grayscale.



On a side note. King me

Edit:
  And a knight.

Well, to be honest, I like the knight so much, that I might just use one on both sides of the title screen. So... I'll take any piece, but it has to be cooler than the knight.

I like them. However, I already put the knights in my title screen and it looks so cool that I don't want to change it. ;D So, although I could call this a pointless thread, I must say that it energized me to try harder at making these things.
