Hi everyone

I wanted to find a microbadge earlier that matched a particular trait of mine, I tend to hoard coins/money in games. And some games coins are worth victory points at the end, so I usually get comments about how many I got. Well, I couldn't find anything - if you know of one, please correct me. But otherwise I wanted to try my own design. This is what I came up with, please give me some feedback.


"I hoard coins for VP" or something similar

Ok. From the poll so far, it seems that people want the badge submitted -- just differences in preference. It seems more people are interested in the original so I have gone back and tried to freshen it up some more. Here's another newer version. Better now or should I just stick with the original? Feedback welcome.

I would go for it

PS
The second best, I think, is the one with the softer edges and less shadow since he appears bulkier.
He's a Warlus afterall!


Well okey dokey then let's poll this and see.

Yeah tough one. I guess in this situation I should just go with your preference (it was you who requested it right? I can't remember now...)

Box covers rarely work well, if at all.

Maybe try one of the multicoloured cards? This is too muddled and unclear. The current Hanabi mb is so good I think you need a decent one to go alongside it.

It's the same game, this is just a new version. Not sure why there are two entries really, you can play Ikebena with these cards.

That image is impossible to make out. Perhaps a different crop would work?



Or perhaps the lightning token:

First, 25% transparency on each corner pixel = $$$

Second, the dotted lines are visibly different along each side.

Third, anyone who likes Kate Rusby must read Gunnerkrigg Court. It is the law. People who don't like Kate Rusby can also read it.

The rocket could do with some antialiasing as well. You seem to have alternated between a 1- and 2-pixel tip: why not 1.5?

Red princess looked a bit funny but not sure why, as after a couple of tries I think yours is probably the best:

 


This may sound crazy, but since in the card art their hair is cropped out by the circle, but in the badges it looks like that's actually all the hair they've got, how about you restore the badge-hair to its extrapolated uncropped glory?

Looking at the red rocket in the badge and on the helmet, they are not really the same.






I get that the middle of the "rocket arrow" on the bottom doesnt indent properly, and the spike at the top doesnt extend into the star fully, but given the constraints of the 16x16 the rocket would have to be taller than than that to be able to fit a another row of pixels in the middle to help approximate that.

But I guess I disagree that "they are really not the same," but am also open to fixing it if you have any suggestions in particular?

1. It's currently 6 pixels wide. Making it 5 pixels might make it easier to work with for symmetry reasons, or 7 pixels if that doesn't make it look squashed.

2. Use more antialiasing, your shape is quite blocky.

Ok, thanks Kaffe.

One of the other problems with making the logo an odd number of pixels wide is that it would be overall off-center in the 16x16 grid, which just really hurts my head

I'll give it a shot

Kind of you, thanks!

Depends, they need some feedback to see if they're ok, or need some work etc. Do you have a preference? I'd go for the middle one myself but I might tweak it a bit.
