Hey everyone!

Been a lot more active on here recently, and haven’t seen thread just dedicated to Specific Game Icons so I figured I would start one.

ahh… now it works. I needed to gain trust level “basic” first.
I’m sticking to the grey scale theme with mine:

What are you using to make these? I’d really like to know haha

Any number of pixel/photo editing programs can do the trick. Photoshop is what I used.
I grabbed a single icon as a template, and just started copying sprites on to it.

Gotta use this graphic design degree for something!

I’m using GIMP (free & Open Source Image Editor).
Steps to reproduce:

  • Open one of the files from this post with GIMP
  • Remove content from the circle
  • Find picture that you want inside the circle with transparent (!) background (you can specifically select transparent as background color on google image search)
  • Scale picture to resolution that is smaller (e.g. 70x70px) than circle (that is 80x80px)
  • Paste picture into circle
  • Export as *.png
