Here is my contribution to this weekly challenge, that I try to make more useful than just a challenge, emulating Lawrick's trophies, awards and ribbons style.

Some rank were done using Ensellitis original ideas rank trophies as refs.

There's 46 colors but I only use arround 2 or 3 gradients of 5 colors, 1 black and 1 white on each icons. They all fit in 48x48 like Lawrick trophies.

For the moment, I've got no idea for the "Maniac" icon of "Psycho" rank, that why I've put a "?", if anyone got any good idea before I find, tell me. (I don't want to make a Freddy, just because I hate his character design )

All the Psycho rank are various well known killer from movies or comics, I won't give their name for the moment to see if people can recognize them. (I think the Mass Killer will be the hardest, because of his hair that are more often stiff on his head)

Some object are also from movies. (I wonder if someone will find from where come the "Hitman" icon from "Killer" rank)

[EDIT]: I replace the saw of "Crime Syndicate" rank by my 1st idea of a vintage cigare cutter (Don't like it because it's more hard to see what it is, but as someone say it, saw isn't really mafia) and added "Jack Nicholson" from "Shining" for "Maniac" of "Psycho" rank (Thanks to Hatch & Nightmare Maker for the idea)

i want new karateh sprites. recoloring is boring ;-;

[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/2/2010 17:57

@ Lawrick: Thanks, I should have thought to send you a MP, I love all your trophies and awards.

JediDude (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/31/2010 16:40

 Excellent job on all of these! Psycho class ones are kick-ass!

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/30/2010 09:01

I'm just going to copy/paste what I said in the chatterbox...


I just realized there's something slightly wrong with the member ranks, mainly the "killer" theme...

"Sniper" I'm sorry... what?!


"Assassin" Um... where to even begin?


"Master Sniper" An assualt rifle with a noobtube is not a sniper rifle last I checked. Or is that silencer? Whatever.


"Master Assassin" That's no master assassin, that's a rocket-whore.


These aren't real complaints, just teeny little nitpicks over trivialities some people may or may not see as an itch to scratch.

Minor nitpicks aside, these are awesome though. Good job!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/25/2010 07:17

Hey [thUg] I didn't realise you'd made these till Reo told me about them today! They're amazing! Great work.

~ Lawrick ;P

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 5/19/2010 21:35

inb4 getting ripped all across the internet

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/28/2010 11:55

 super dope

ooshmaster (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/14/2010 06:51



Leath (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/13/2010 13:59

i cant believe this didnt get first place in the challenge. It is just so amazing. I love the mafia and psychopath ranks :D

ev149 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/13/2010 07:43

Just another nitpick - the shading on the golden guns is inconsistent, and it's easy to see that they were mirrored.  The bone in the horse head looks a little too far to the right, too. 

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/13/2010 04:03

Great ideas for the psycho class, which is my fav anyhow.

So many good things in here.

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/11/2010 15:19

The category isn't villains, it's "pyscho." So someone different and misunderstood would qualify, right?

How about Patrick Bateman instead?

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/11/2010 13:08

@ big brother- the pfantom of the opera is not a bad guy! do you evin know the story?

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 4/8/2010 18:18

This should be used on PJ. Great job!

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/8/2010 13:33

Why not use a cigar instead of a cigar cutter? I've seen mafia movies where they inflict damage using the lit end. Just a thought.

Love the rendering of all of these. It might be nice if the angled guns conformed to true 45 degree angles -- right now some of the borders look a bit shaky.

The Phantom of the Opera might be a good addition to the "Psycho" rank if you wanted to replace any of the current ones.

The karate icons all seem a bit static since the belt is the only thing that changes. It might be cool if they were eahc in different stances or performing different moves. They could even each be a frame in a single kicking animation, so if you look down the page really fast, you can read the motion. Ideas, ideas.

Luisyluis (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/8/2010 06:38

Wow  very nice!

antymattar (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/7/2010 23:25

why don't we use these instead of the ones we have?

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 4/7/2010 06:45

riiight hehe

By the way the karate ones confused me because they follow a different belt color order to the shotokan karate I practice.  Red belt in my class is very low.

[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/7/2010 04:26

@ Carnivac: I draw during loading.

For the "Karate" rank, I think you all got a good idea of making various poses but I will wait the end of the week because it's a weekly chalenge. I think I will try to make another "Psycho" rank less marked.

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/6/2010 18:56

These are freaking SUPER!!!!!

ev149 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/6/2010 13:45


These are awesome.  The karate ones could use some more variety, but they're still great!

Chrispy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/5/2010 12:29

I agree with Necro. All of them are so unique, but then on the karate levels they're boring and the same. I recommend the poses getting more actiony as it moves up, like the top being the ready to strike position and moving into the strike.

Necroleachate (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/5/2010 09:52

This is pure awesomeness!

I just think would be nice to have different poses for each karate level.

Admins, please implement these!

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 4/5/2010 09:03

They are awesome! They should be sugested for real PJ ranks.

the man (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/5/2010 08:39

amazing, i realy like the psycho levels

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 4/5/2010 03:14

when the hell did you get time to do these?  You're always on the PS3 obtaining platinum trophies...

Great work all round

[thUg] (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/4/2010 18:44

@ Sterner Regnix: Nice , this is effectively Lobo.

For The horse head, like Jalonso says it's from The Godfather, this scene. And for the 2 golden guns they are from Face/Off, the two favorite guns of "Castor Troy", here and here.

I know I would have used Joker but it fit more with "Killer Clown", I've think of too much clown style I wanted to use (Pennywise from It, Captain Spaulding from The Devil's Rejects, The Violator from Spawn, Fwank from Loaded...) but this one fit really really better due to the rank name. This is the last one missing, does no one know this movie?!

Thank to all for your coms.

rod750 (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/3/2010 21:23

Wooow are awesomtastics!

I don't like too much the star badges of the law and order ranks, the shade don't convinces me, and the graph paper of the working stiff ranks it's a bit dark.

Sorry if I something in my english is wrong (if you can, tell me what is wrong :P).

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 4/3/2010 04:10

Those are very nice, but the curent ones're just a lil better IMO ;) Less details is sometimes more.

PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 4/2/2010 19:48

definetly add these to replace the current ones, much better looking.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/2/2010 15:42

anddd we got a winner.

eliotfellow (Level 7 Assassin) @ 4/2/2010 14:02

 I like your Psycho rank overall, but I'm not sure Scream was a good pick for "Depressed." Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. . .

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/2/2010 08:13

very nice,crime and psycho are the best ranks you made :3

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 4/2/2010 07:43

I would like to see these implemented. great job all around.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/2/2010 07:31

Fantastic stuff!

@Robinhood, the horse is from a scene in the Godfather movie.

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/2/2010 06:15

Epic remake.

I'd love for these to be used :D

Horse head is awesome, but I don't get it :<

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/2/2010 04:42

When did Helm put on goth paint and go on a killing spree? :O

J/k, I love these!

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 4/2/2010 01:57

 top notch! Really love your interpretation, especially the psycho and the criminals, but I would have used the pistol on third level for the criminals, the saw is actually more linked to the psycho probably :D

about the ninth level of psycho I would agree with the joker from the dark knight... 

good job :)

kuph (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/2/2010 01:44

Psycho rank? It's got to be the Joker, from The Dark Knight movie. Though that's just an opinion.

I absolutely adore all of these icons. All shiny and detailed...



Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 4/2/2010 00:32

mmmh.. I don't like the way those psycho faces would look at me when I log on my profile (even if they're made excellently); Indeed I really like the criminal icons... They are awesome...

Brilliant piece and great realization...

oCo (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/1/2010 23:45

Crime set is top notch.

Lovely work all round

TheZakMan (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/1/2010 22:44

winnier !


for sure.


but please change this "?"in front of the pallet for Jason ² as skamocore, will give you the gold medal.



Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 4/1/2010 22:34


Oh, and I also vote for Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance from The Shining.

annezca (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/1/2010 22:28

the psycho ranks is AMAZING WORK!!!!!!

Sterner Regnix (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/1/2010 22:27

I love these!


Khoryl (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/1/2010 21:33

Really nice work :D

Hatch (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 4/1/2010 21:21

Scream, Chucky, Jigsaw, Jason, It(?), Halloween, ???, Hannibal Lecter, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, :P, Alex.

You could do Jack Nicholson from The Shining for the empty slot. Although that'd be two Kubrick films...

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/1/2010 20:43

Great work! I love it all, especially the second row. =)

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 4/1/2010 20:38

Awesome. It would be a bit weird though having one of those guys staring back at you in your profile if you had the Psycho theme. Why not just do Freddy? =/ his character design is far better than a question mark in front of a palette.

Also, I really love the safe.

KingOfTheTrolls (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/1/2010 20:37

Wow thats uuuh Amazing! Great detail bringing PJ's ranks/Esentilis'  Work A step further!


The hitman is the Double Deagles from 007


And the psyco's: Scream, Chucky, Jigsaw, Freddy, Idk, Idk, Idk , Hannible The Canible, Idk, none, Idk  ,

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/1/2010 19:19


These are so freaking awesome and i deff can see his style on those icons..


Btw here are the killers i recognized since i love horror movies so much: The scream, chuck, jigsaw, Jason, Killer clown?, halloween dude, Fred, chainsaw massacre man
