MB Proposal for Prune Juice... A warrior's drink!

Proposed MB:
 


Mouseover: "Prune Juice... A warrior's drink!"

I intended the MB to directly mirror that of the Beer fan MB: mb

Also, since this is in direct homage to Start Trek: TNG I intend to submit it within that category.

Would anyone like to offer input for consideration prior to submission?

Like it, but isn't prune juice a little more brown (and less purple)?

Its really more of a really deep purple, but it did not look very good with that heavier purple shading. I opted for artistic license on the coloring in this case.

Thanks to quoting, I saw some stray white pixels that have now been removed.

The request is for a badge to represent that the user has a nemesis, so the icon is a shaking fist and the mouseover text proposed by bluelise would be "Curse you, nemesis!"

I like the idea. I think the fingers should come further over the thumb, though. Right now it looks like the hand is doing something requiring dexterity rather than shaking in anger, like rolling a die or making the ASL letter E. I would buy this, especially if the user could link it to his/her nemesis.

It's still fairly jagged in places, and your lines are now 2 pixels thick even though they should be as slim as possible. Try to recreate the shape by hand using just red pixels, then smooth out the sloping bits. Finally, it should be symmetric.


Kaffedrake, the mean man of Microbadging. I say that with affection though, and appreciate the feedback/nudging in the right direction.

I'm still new to using this transparency thing to make pixels appear less jagged, so here is my first attempt at that plus a small shadow to make it symmetrical.

Started working on this one a few days ago, people suggested I work on it further and smooth it out.

- Original MB design

- smoother design

Loosely based on this slacklining image, for those of you who are not familiar with slacklining -


Any suggestions on the smoother design? Anyone prefer the pixel version?

I voted "yes, submit away", but just saw some animated microbadges, and thought that having the actual fist shaking slowly might be awesome.
What do you guys think?
As for the linking to a nemesis, it would be cool too, but I'd provide an option for linking and no linking, if possible.

Animated microbadges are limited to special (mostly award) badges (so probably not going to happen)...

Actually, just tried to do the gesture, and I feel that the thumb should be further over the fingers, covering part of the first two.

kataclysm and Phelanpt thanks for the input, I think you're both on the right lines, I just made a tightly clenched fist and I think the fingers do come further behind the thumb, which could either be rendered as the thumb being a little higher or the fingers being a little lower. I don't want to extend the thumb up as the less of the top of the fingers I show, the less recognisable it becomes as a fist (I created half a dozen versions that just looked like blobs!), instead I've extended the visible finger down slightly (the others are covered by the thumb anyway). I'll put both versions in a poll and see which one you guys prefer, for me although the change is subtle I do think verson 2 is better but I'm happy to go with what everyone else thinks.

Which version do you prefer?

As for animating, as kiowapilot said, this is only allowed for certain award badges and I think it's generally limited to adding sparkles to the award. I'm not sure there is any way to link a microbadge to a particular user either (unless someone a bit more familiar with the system knows how, I've just had a look at my own and I can't see any options), sorry!

I agree, I voted for #3 (not being familiar with Skip Bo, 1 and 2 reminded me more vaguely of Uno) but it does need just a tiny bit of tidying up if possible.

I have not played Skip-Bo since I was a kid, but once I saw the logo, I knew it belonged to that singular game. However, although #3 is the best choice IMHO, it does need a smidge of work to clean it up.

Tom did you want to poll the Prince alongside these? I think he'd fit in well.


Can you reupload these with the mouseover as just 'Love Letter fan'? The names can stay, but seems an odd mouseover - I certainly would only buy it if the mouseover reflected the simple fandom for the game, but with my preferred image choice for the mb.

I like it. I would try two things that maybe improbe a bit the badge. First, triying with a little less contrast (currently, the black is too black, so there is no difference between hair and background). And second, i would try moving the face a couple pixels to the right, since Diego is looking at the left
