(bad) Freestyle icon

Postby Iceflower » 16 Oct 2014 21:15

The freestyle icon is (sorry) bad made from the jetpack icon :?
You can see a little bit from the old icon. :D

Here a (maybe) better icon.

Iceflower :)


PS. Edit with Photoshop in 3 minutes even from the old jetpack icon.

Photoshop and alpha channels never mix.

I agree the new logo doesn't look great, but the size you see it in hides those small issues. Honestly, though, I really can't see the difference between your and quin's edit.

This is my attempt:

I made a macro ("Script-Fu") for gimp to make these icons.
Maybe it is helpfull for you. You just have to make a white image with transparent background (I simply removed the shadow of the old jetpack icon).
You have to save this script (a dialect of Scheme) in \.gimp-2.8\scripts\re-icon.scm
It is registered in Filters/Alpha to Logo. I think this way you get the hint that only the alpha channel matters.
I noticed there is a white outline in the weapon icons, but not in the other icons. This white outline is also generated by the script. You can delete the layer if you don't like it.
Code: Select all
(define (script-fu-re-icon   img
                     shape-layer)
   (let* (
        (width (car (gimp-drawable-width shape-layer)))
        (height (car (gimp-drawable-height shape-layer)))
        (blur 3)
        (diffuse-layer (car (gimp-layer-new img
                                   width height RGB-IMAGE
                                     "Diffuse" 100 NORMAL-MODE)))
        (diffuse-layer-mask (car (gimp-layer-create-mask diffuse-layer
                                             ADD-BLACK-MASK)))
        (shadow-layer (car (gimp-layer-new img
                                  width height RGBA-IMAGE
                                    "Shadow" 80 NORMAL-MODE)))
        (highlight-layer (car (gimp-layer-new img
                                  width height RGB-IMAGE
                                    "Highlight" 60 SOFTLIGHT-MODE)))
        (highlight-layer-mask (car (gimp-layer-create-mask highlight-layer

Well, I agree Unnamed's attempt is better than the current icon. Maybe swap it for that?
