Haven't seen it around. I do find the badge cool though.

Ok another of my favourite fruits missing in the MB. I solve the issue (and I plan to do many more )

So I tried at first to have all of the image (v1), but it feels a bit small. I thus created 2 more versions zooming and removing leaves, to see if it could be better.

I missed your previous posts - I now can't vote because you've not re-included the source/explanation of what these were for (or a link to your previous post), so I'm not really sure what I'm looking at, sorry! :-/

V3, but I'd improve the grapefruit in the back. It looks like a blood orange now. Grapefruits are usually more yellow.

@psymann: it's just one page back. They are HeroQuest icons.
I've added a link to the previous post as well

Ah, so it is, oops. I did look a couple of pages back but somehow missed it.

Have now voted.

The black-and-white ones look fairly nice. The coloured ones look maybe lack a bit of definition somehow - not sure how to explain. The earth one also looks a bit too orange (rather than brown).

Thank you.

The left base of the smoothie seems to be missing a chunk - or at least looks like it is missing the corner of the glass.

And I know this is going to sound picky... but I while I love smoothies, I hate strawberries... (is there a way to make an orange smoothie image?)

Since no strawberries appear on the MB, can you see it as raspberries instead?

EDIT: I could try to make a second model in different colour as well...

My votes explained:
1. I don't like the fact that his head it cut that much. The face is bigger than your other designs. Maybe you could reduce the size of the face to make more of the head fit?

2. I find hard to explain what I don't like about this badge. I think it is the only one of your designs that do not catch the character image properly. The badge look like a young thug instead of an old man... I find the border of the head a bit too blurry as well. Maybe sharpen it a little?

3.My problem with number 3 is that you have simply reduced the image without taking notice of the background. You should make all the background blue.

4. Almost good to go. Like number 2 I would try to sharpen a bit however.

5. Good to go IMO.

6. Good to go IMO.


Thank you for the feedback!

I changed the images you and the majority did not like that much:

new vs old




Any comments before I put up a vote?

Looks like I'm almost there.
The earth elemental's only issue seems to be the orange color, that happened because I lightened the image (tweaked the levels).
So I desaturated it a bit:

old:


new:


Now, the HQ logo is difficult. The first one is 50/50 good as is / not the preferred version. The second one has more votes, but is also 50/50 good (with maybe a little work?) / not preferred. The third one has almost entirely "needs work".
So, do I opt for version 1, as is?
Do I opt for version 2, as is (or with whatever people think needs to be done)?
Or do I "fix" version 3 (although I don't know what I'd need to fix).

Thanks for the feedback so far, I'm sure the head of the Blightun bird could be better, I'm not sure how to make the Yellow beak standout and I think I've got a similar problem with the Allies too.

Proposing two new Pinball fan MBs... the Flippers!

 
 


I assumed the mouseover for each one would also be "Pinball fan"

I am very much open to hearing suggestions for other mouseovers, and or additional suggestions.
Obviously I opted for the classic look with a white body surrounded by red rubber bumpers.

I could see these being incorporated into avatar pictures for a bit of fun.

Better. (Btw, if you link these as [imageID=2051415 original] rather than as [img]url[/img], then that allows us to click through to the image page, and easily see the image in "small" format, which is useful for spotting stray pixel mistakes and such. (And leaving earlier attempts in your personal gallery, rather than deleting them right away, helps us with comparing versions.)

One small further improvement for the white shield, btw: The point at the bottom seem to have gotten lost a bit. That was much better in your previous versions.
Compare the point of the last version
with the current version

I could... but I don't like raspberries either

(It's the seeds I can't stand, the fruit itself is OK.)
