CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON by ikemike111 CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON by ikemike111
CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON.

This is one of my entries for the 8-bit Challenge! As I know there are amazing pixel artists out there, I didn't try to beat them at their own game; instead, I tried to come up with the best idea I could think of for the design. I took to heart the contest's purpose to make a design that "a gamer would be proud to wear". So I came up with a design touting the ever-present decision for the everyday game player— Magic, Melee, or Archery?

I used a true 8-bit style (not 16-bit and such) for the front side, to try and evoke nostalgia for the NES age of gaming. =)

Please click the "I'd wear this" button! I want to try and prove to my family that my art is not a waste of time, and that I can actually get recognition out of it!

This is a great take on a recurring 8-bit theme. The sprites look neat and the text is readable, maybe the weapons could be a little bigger but it all works.

Could you please check out my design and if you like it, vote for it? [link]

Thanks for the serious critique! I tried to make the sprites a comfortable size so the text would still be in the general chest area, instead of lower down, but I see your point about them being bigger. =)

As for your design— critiqued and voted for! ;)

I do see where you're coming from there, but I'm sure there could've been a healthy compromise. No matter though.

Thanks for the comment and vote also! I try and be as constructive as I possibly can when it comes to comments, I think it's unfair to simply say 'I like it' and expect someone to go and look at what you want them to.

Agreed. Although, I find that the people who leave constructive comments tend to have better entries in the first place, because they care about details.

By the way, congrats on making top 25 in popularity! That means you're probably going to qualify for round 2. =D

Do you think mine might have made it if I entered it a bit earlier?...

I actually almost put "CLASSIC" as the caption before deciding on "CHOOSE", due to its classic 8-bit feel. =)
