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: I'd like to be playing Fire Emblem Engage, but it wasn't delivered when it was supposed to be, and the shipment tracking hasn't been updated, so I have no idea what happened to it.
Jan 21, 2023 18:21:51 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Times like this make me wonder if Sakurai had the right idea, and buying games digitally is the way to go.
Jan 21, 2023 18:23:18 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Digital is usually more expensive and Switch only supports up to 2TB storage (about 140 to 200 games), but if you want to play games as soon as possible, it's the way to go.
Jan 22, 2023 1:48:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know when will I be getting it. I'm still interested, but it's no longer the "pre-order, premium version" kind of interested. These days I order games in bulks, so maybe I'll wait.
Jan 22, 2023 1:49:34 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Finally, an update. It's marked as "out for delivery" again. Fingers crossed.
Jan 23, 2023 12:58:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: About the prices of digital games, I often find that when they go on sale, it's usually for very cheap prices. Except for first-party Nintendo games, which rarely go on sale, and not usually for that big of a discount.
Jan 23, 2023 13:01:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: But then, first-party Nintendo games usually hold their value for a long time even physically.
Jan 23, 2023 13:02:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Welp, that's 0 for 2 on the delivery.
Jan 23, 2023 23:11:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And it's out for delivery again. Third time's the charm?
Jan 26, 2023 12:54:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And that's 0 for 3 on the delivery.
Jan 27, 2023 9:49:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: So, the delivery company gave up and sent the game back to the retailer. My order is being cancelled and money refunded.
Jan 27, 2023 20:41:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've been in contact with a customer service rep from the retailer all week, and they didn't understand why the package wasn't being delivered, either. But they're sending me a $30 gift card for the trouble, so that takes the sting out of it.
Jan 27, 2023 20:43:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Still considering the digital option at this point.
Jan 27, 2023 20:53:05 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Went back to my Wii U and downloaded updates / free DLC for games I don't have, in case I want to buy those.
Jan 30, 2023 7:22:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Wii U having only 32GB of storage isn't helpful at all. 3DS and Switch are expandable via SD cards, while Wii U only supports USB hard disks. It made sense in 2012, but with SD cards going up to 2TB now, not supporting that sounds silly now.
Jan 30, 2023 7:27:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: What started off as me checking what can I do with the Wii U ended up with me just having fun with the system. Also relieved that it still works perfectly fine after 2 years of disuse. Except the Wii U GamePad vibration motor, which now makes weird noises.
Jan 30, 2023 12:43:42 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually planned to use a mod to dump my games and save data, so that in case anything happens to it I can move on to emulation (since, unlike Switch, there's no save data backup service). I haven't started doing that, though.
Jan 30, 2023 12:45:00 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Haha, yeah, still have it hooked up and use it occasionally. Was playing some Fatal Frame 5 recently in anticipation of Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.
Feb 4, 2023 9:42:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Sometimes, I wonder if Nintendo deliberately leaks things like Tears of the Kingdom's price increase so that the "shock" and backlash doesn't overshadow the proper reveal of the game later.
