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.
