This is a mock of some things that could be used for the loading screen for MM&M. I'll post more as I make them.


This one is not complete yet... I've still yet to do the top. I don't know what to put there. :/

I like it. It's time for us to change out loading screen. The top needs more stuff, but what you have so far looks great.


P.S. It's Zync, not "Zinc".

I was joking. Question: Should lightning be light blue/teal or yellow?

Use the golden/yellow/brownish colors. Teal wouldn't go with with the rest of it. And you could make Mages more prominent. Or alternatively add a light source somewhere. And or move the book, its a render anyways, right? And for the rest of it, you could add another render, and add some smudging to the book. With some photo filters, and gradient overlays.

This is the next update on it.

I repositioned the text box to give the loading bar space, and placed the website centered below the load bar. Additionally, I added the 8 elements with a title and icon, as well as an instruction box on how to play.

I'm not liking how the title I made looks, so I will re-touch that to give it the better golden feeling I was looking for. Thanks for the advice on how to change the image. I'll play around with it and post what progress I make.

That font is neigh impossible to read. It looks cool, but I would suggest changing it to something legible.

Really? I thought it was easy to read. That box gives new players something to read while it's a really longgg load. Razz

Wait... do you mean the title or the smaller text?

I think that picture is amazing. It is very well done and looks pretty damn sweet. The one critique I'd have is that the first, capital letter of each of the elements and the name of the map is very hard to read. I.e. all the "M's" in Mages Magic and Mayhem...

Otherwise, awesome.

I think it kicks ass. It's has an appropriate style with great creativity and a logical layout. What else could you ask for?!

I need a favor from someone who can do this... I need the metal frame from the original loading screen to add to the loading screen image. Could someone cut the metal part and put it on top of a transparent background?

Well i think its starting to look pretty good with that second update of yours.

Eight I think is being spelled Eilght?

The M's are a bit tough to read but all in all this looks pretty damn cool.

I like it. Even if the M's are tough to read it doesn't matter considering the game's name is MM&M Razz.

Also - would you like to be invited into the artist group? I think you qualify Smile.

Yeah, it was spelled 'Eilght'. Fixed that...

If you want to make me an artist, okay, but I'm only making art for things I want to do. I wouldn't think of myself as a community artist. Razz

Yeah, only the first letters are hard to read. Also, I think we should have someone else write the how to play section. Other than that, great job. The loading screen looks awesome.

The How to play section looks fine. And as other have said the scrollwork on the first letters are hard to read.

If necessary, I'll rewrite it. I think there are more important things to say in it, no offense.

Yeah, but you always do that dragon. You have this sense that everything is not quite as good as you can make it. That's not necessarily false just... meh. I'm just glad that, as far as I can tell, he has correct grammar.

As for the metal framework... yeah, nope not going to happen here. Maybe someone who knows what he/she is doing can help out with that?

PostSubject: Re: New Loading Screen   Mon Feb 16, 2009 1:55 pm

As everyone has already said, plz redo the 1st letter of every large word. I also think that the Caligraphy style lettering doesn't work well with all 8 elements, it only really fits with Light. Maybe make an image for each icon that isn't just the spellbook, because they seem a bit out of place with the overall style atm.

On the last line of the Info section, add something about latest version being on the website also.

What if you used the banner that DBC made for the top of the forums and used that for a represntaion of all 8 elements?

Another update... I don't really like how the elements are set up but I'm running short on ideas of what to put there. It's hard and time consuming creating a little logo / rune for each element. If someone else wants to do it and have me put it in, that would be fine. I'm also going to take out the icon reflections (if not the icons entirely) soon.

Looks good.
The only suggestions I have are;
1). Fix the choppiness on the hand with a soft brush. (I liked the idea for the light source though).
2). Use different colors for the Dark, and Earth texts. Something more like the others. In Brightness/Contrast.
3). Try making the edges softer on the flipped icons that are slightly transparent. (I like them there).
Like the Earth one, where it looks like only the book is actually reflecting.
4). Do you have a bigger resolution?
