  2. I made a signature for the contributors/fans:

    <img src="http://img175.imageshack.us/img175/8402/smaller1.png" border="0" class="linked-image" />
     
  3. Shouldn't we have 2 seperate versions then? one with "contributors" beneath it, and another with "fans" - or will that just confuse things?
     
  4. Bah it's just a little logo =P. The distinction is already done with the achievements thing, that can be used by the staff too as they have the Staff achievement!

    So, what's up with all of the previous awesome contributions? Should they be reposted here?

    If the answer is yes...

    More than likely they have been redone and finalised for the alpha. It just that we haven't seen it on this side of the community. Anyway I've seen much better mockups of those from later posts in the archived thread.

    Don't have to be, but if you want to point out a few things that accurately show the art direction you can.

    Really? Maybe the monitor effect, bet thew rest I believe were the final or best versions posted.

    Anyway, my main concern is really more towards new contributors remaking things that may already be considered final. Wouldn't it be good to list what is needed or at least what is not needed?

    That's the whole point of these new forums. This is a subject that has already been discussed. That's why there is a Hill Top Zone thread and a Special stage development. If someone puts up a mockup that's already been finalised behind the community. I'm sure the HD staff would tell us.

    I'd rather not waste the person's efforts and get their hopes up only to be told it's not needed when they never had any clear indication of what is or isn't needed in the first place.

    I don't feel like digging through the old topic about it so I'll just drop it.

    It's already been stated in the Community Project Targets what needs to be done. It's up to people to read it. If anyone does art that doesn't need to be done then it's their own fault for not reading things up.

    That's excellent Flare.
    Just like the broken pieces, those glass shards are a very nice touch!
    My only suggestion is toning down the light glare on the glass (especially the topmost reflection).

    Pease feel free to provide the source file so I can store it on DB! ;)
     
  15. What about the monitor's red light? I suppose really it should be turned off if the whole thing is destroyed.

    BTW Vincent, once the monitor is completely done, will that mean I'll need to re-do the flickering animation effect? The effect is relatively easy to do actually, it's just the timing that can be a pain.

    At the moment we still need to complete shades testing on items before streamlining any TV animation process. (and so update the Community Project Targets with it)
    In the meantime, if you wish to provide further conceptual animations, you're welcome to make those here. ;)

    Maybe it would look better without any glare?

    A faint glare is a nice HD touch, so even if subtle it should definitely stay.
    There will be some instances where the glaring isn't supposed to be present, but if you keep that as a separate layer it will be tested zone by zone. ;)

    Lovley, but it needs the glare. With it it looks more like a tv, with the rounded glass.

    I can not get onto the database would you like me to upload things and just send a link to you through PM? I can send a double the 400% psd, and the normal size (400%) as I tend to clean up some of the AA issues with photoshop.
