I dunno, I still think that the devil's head could be bigger - at the moment, it's much smaller than the Neo Spartan's head, so you don't get the impression that this is a formidable opponent.

Cool, I like that blue a lot more than the old red.

Yeah, like Frost says, the text would look better in one colour. You could move the red to the 'Press Start' text to emphasise/differentiate it.

How about pixeling the text yourself? 'Neo Spartan' looks like the font Stencil and 'Press Start' like, well, Press Start (or Press Stark K, I don't know).

well blue considering the challenge is supposed to be a start screen for a game and considering most people in games use premade text i decided to type it. And considering that the text is just an add on to make it look like a game screen it really isnt the focal point of the challenge. I really hope th text is not gonna affect ur judgement.





blue u choose which one if it makes u feel better.

Looks like it should be pretty awesome, Metaru :D

And yeah, Spartan, that looks great. The 'Press Start' text is off-centre relative to the title text, though, which looks a little unbalanced.

Oh, also, currently, the contrast between the copyright text and the background is greater than the contrast between the actual title text and the background, which gives the impression that the copyright notice is more important than the title It's not a huge issue, but design-wise, it's things like this that make all the difference.

Well, the title text - and text in general - is an integral part of any game, particularly in the case of the title screen.

Also, "if it makes u feel better"? Hmm.

Pah, it should've been greys, or at least close to greys. And the greys should fill most of the image. IMHO.

Metaru, that's hot.

Spartan, you should work on polishing your piece before submitting. You have a lot of curves that are really sketchy right now and overall it looks unfinished. Antialias your text a bit; you have the colors, and those fonts look like they were made with a text tool rather than pixelling. I'm not sure how strict the gallery is on that if they're not inflating color count, but I'd pixel them myself in a similar style just to be safe were I in your position. Also, game screens usually have no copyright notifications or say "Copyright (c) <company> 2007" in small unobtrusive text in the corner.

RPG is numberwang.

Spartan: Can't say I'm a huge fan of these new colors. If I didn't have reference from what this was before I wouldn't know this was a helmet/spartan and a devil. The spartan blue is way too strong, I think they should equally stand out.
Also, discounting text is bad form I think. It's not just based on your image, but as the whole.

Fixed up the outline, doing the colouring/background tomorrow.

This colour isn't going to be a final colour, I think.

'Course, the background is nowhere half done. But I thought I'd like to let everyone know that it's a window. XD
Again, this may be the colours I'm using, but I'm somehow opting for brown to get a 'grungy' look.

And no, I'm not leaving the messy squares. They're supposed to be lighting.

Finish it later and submit it after the competition...you don't need to scrap it entirely even if you aren't entering into the challenge...but you really don't need that much dithering...the max colour count is 32

 and so? That doesn't mean I will/have to/can use 32 colors. The less the best. But I have to admit, parts of the image dithering (50%) were produced for my foolish intention of saving it as a GIF in MSPaint. fortunately, I'm using a BMP backup.
 
I'll finish it.

As I see, the most used composition will be a profile in one of the sides of the picture, like the example I provided a few post above. its my duty to break this lack of originality!
still not finished. removed the bad dithering. found a good background color.

thought I should post what I have so far in case I don't make the deadline



So far it is indeed a bit too symmetrical but I will change that near the end with some offset items. I also would like to add something on the sides to fill up space. Originally I was going to have a street scene with a character running through it but my instinct told me to do otherwise. Ideas?

I think that even that you won't have enough time to finish it, it is amazing enough to post it like that and be in top3 :P
The symmetric head does not matter, since it's title screen for a game, it's more what game title screen looks like...
I don't really have an idea what would fit to the head, I'll post if find one. Just the head looks scary... so maybe something scary at the background aswell, something hopeless etc. But thats pretty much whats cyberpunk about :P

I'm working on something that should hopefully be pretty cool and a nice re-intro to pj. Should have a preview/wip up late tonight.

Frost, the font for "Tokyo" is seriously amazing. And Metaru, I'd really like to see you finish that heart, should be good.
