It's based on his avatar here on BGG

It should be named after the blog, not the user. Also, if you want to use the avatar, a straight resize from 64x64 to 16x16 will be more recognizable, I think.

Also, first on second page of new thread, etc.


Good point on the name, how about "Mechanics & Meeples by Shannon Appelcline - fan".

I thought about a simple resize but with the badge I just did for Gameopolis I got complaints for not having a transparent background. Folks seemed split on that one & even after a poll pointed me towards a solid I got complaints for it. So with this badge having a very light background and the instructions emphasizing the transparent background I went in that direction.

Out of curiosity I tried flipping it just now; it was no longer recognizable as the standard missile icon.

I'm seeing the votes lean towards this
needing work, but no advice on what work needs to be done. I went back and messed with it. Here it is

Also remove the outer lines of the circle and draw a new one underneath. Merge and you'll have a perfectly symmetric shield.
(I know the shield is not a circle but maintaining the original shape makes the badge look wrong)

Annoyingly as the old thread is locked I can't quote it to get the images, but from this:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/9839764#9839764

it might be nicer to use the zombie head in the title? Not sure if it works but the Z just seems a little too generic.

Here's my idea:



It is a French armored car battalion.

Funny, this is one rare instance where the microbadge is better looking than the source! The reference pic is so poorly rendered / low-res / blur.

Difficult to give specific instructions, but perhaps focus on getting them symmetric-looking, and reducing rather than adding while doing so. Also there's a pixel two steps out on the left from the right-side hilt that should probably be backgroundized. And yes, I see that without zooming in.

I thought the non-roundness of the shape was a nice touch and well executed.

Oops, I didn't mean literally mirror - just to take the earlier design, then change colours and details as appropriate. For instance, you had a dark box around yours while the other used a gradient.

The red one would probably benefit from softening the corners. The other is too small.

Feels like the original should just be updated with transparency.

Looks more like a star than a cogwheel, and I'm not sure the letters "SP" do much to capture the subject.
