Well normally I do all my sprites on MSPaint which is why I got into the habit of saving things as .png
But for this, I needed to use Photoshop.
Photoshop Elements actually. I'm too cheap to have the real Photoshop. This version doesn't have the Pen tool so I trace over using the Lasso tool and Fill. I actually make the details pixel-by-pixel blown up by 200% When I shrink it down it automatically dithers it. Then I save it as .png

Are you a student? Ask if Adobe offers some special-priced version of Design Premium.
I just got one such offer: get Design Premium for one sixth the price of the normal education version. Not what I wanted though - not when they decided to sell me Studio 8 (Fl+Dw+Fw+Ct) for US$25 just right after CS3's release. Too bad I didn't have sufficient cash and all my money was spent on the DVD-RAM I have now that I'm not even using due to unsufficient IDE space - I'll definitely spend less-than-a-game's price for some actually useful software as opposed to the makes-users-frustrated CS4.

Here are my ideas.
28 A snowboard viewed diagonally. 32 The right side of a Cubivore 38 Famicom Musashi-Banashi symbol 39 A briefcase? 40 A checkered flag 41 Disk-kun 42 Gamecube controller 43 Bat wings. A cross makes more sense, but it would cause trouble. 44 Either a paw print or the right side of a puppy's head. 45 A star with a circle around it. Based on the pearls collected in the game. 46 Two boxing gloves punching each other like on the title screen of the Punch-Out!! arcade and the Punch-Out!! Wii logo. 47 The large tank seen here. 48 49 50 Either the Gun Sword or the crosshair seen in the game 51 The front side of the drill 52 53 54 The plug on Chibi-Robo's tail 55 The symbol on the body of the ghost name D 56 Three men that look different from the Ouendan and the Elite Beat Agents. 57 A Japanese castle shaped like this one. 58 The T Tetrad. It is usually behind some Tetris logos. Also, "T" is what "Tetris" and "Tetrad" stand for. 59 The Crystal seen here and here. 60 Either a brain or Dr. Kawashima's glasses 61 Famicom controller. 62 Either a Mii's body or Sports equipment like the Sports series icon on bottom-left corners of Nintendo's NES Sports games. 63 Chef's hat 64 An angel 65 Anything pixelated 66 67 Sports equipment. See Sports series icon on bottom-left corners of Nintendo's NES Sports games. 68 F-Type viewed on its right-side 69 The trophies seen on the menu screen of Pilotwings 64. 70 A stack of majong pieces 71 A revolver. Nintendo of America changed it to the NES Zapper to make it look like a toy gun. 72 Any limbless droid that's different from all of them that are seen in the game. 73 A large empty circle with two small full circles on top. See on certain parts of the Japanese logo here.
Um sorry I haven't been updating, but I'm actually going to use these emblems for another project I'm doing!
That's right, I've been working on something else for this.
Anyway, for Punch-Out I want the emblem to be the symbol to be the Major Circuit symbol from Punch-Out Wii. The one you see when its loading, there's two fists and a star. Can anyone find me a picture of that, or get a screen shot?
EDIT: Never mind I just scanned the back of the instruction booklet.

Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)
Jul 23, 2020 8:32:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.
Jul 24, 2020 22:46:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.
Jul 26, 2020 1:45:06 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)
Jul 26, 2020 1:46:07 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.
Jul 26, 2020 8:41:58 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.
Jul 29, 2020 3:00:10 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
