Graphics Department

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 
I guess I'm in charge of Graphics.

First things first, we need to think of a theme that we want to go with. What colors? Glossy, glass, matte, matte translucents? It doesn't make sense to have a glossy theme and then a matte icon pack. It would just clash.

Next thing we need to do is assign some projects. Icon creation isn't that big of a deal for me. I can do the standard 16x16, 48x48, etc pngs. What I don't deal with too often are scalable vectors (SVG). I never had a knack for Inkscape or Illustrator.

I was thinking a glossy theme. I would like to hear other opinions. Describe what you want to see and I'll try to do a mark up.

Smooth, clean, and crisp. Muted colors. Yeah, I guess that's gloss, kinda.

Colors I would keep close to OCN's color scheme. I should be able to extract the old artwork if you guys would like it as reference.

That's sort of what I'm going for but in 3d.

Changeable themes. The blue is getting a little old. Maybe something interesting like...

-binary
-carbon fiber
-matte
-glossy

How about a theme with computer parts in the background? How about changing themes for each section? One graphics related for the graphics sections. The flame is also getting a little boring. How about adding an animation or adding something to it like a glossy look? I put a logo idea where you put the flame with the letters but they thought that wasn't really good. I think maybe a change of font for the letters would be nice. On spreadshirt.com, they have a text called Aspirin which looks really nice. It's really modular so it looks nice and futuristic.

My work on OCNix graphics is on hold until I figure out my own problems.
