et voila, a slightly browner version so it matches the ship sorta...
I guess it's kinda nice that you can't see what it is, so it'll be more
exciting once you reach the boss... shouldnt give it all away hehe.

Also I used the logo you sent, pity it was on low jpeg quality but
another 30 minutes (yeah, same time as doing an entire cover)
and it was more cleaned up.... and I added some more gritty stuff
so the metal looks less clean.

hmm hmm the '2' could be somewhat more 'in-your-face' I think.. Bright yellow perhaps, and bigger?

and since filling the screen is so much fun:

sorry gents...
oh the jagged edges around some letters is because I took a screendump at 66%
instead of 50, so you get these little edges. I won't bother you with the original size,
else it would be too big (it's 300 DPI for printing purposes, this one is 72).

I love the metallic MANBOW lettres,
Sorry, didnt realise that JPG would make that logo so bad.
Is this BMP better ?

the "2" looks very cool, but still not perfect.
the right-bottom of the "2" should be wider, bigger.
Next to that I love the picture,
somehow it would be cool if it would be more revealing,
its a bit vague, like "what is it".
If you could zoom it out more, maybe we could make it look more like the big Manbow ship.
Another thing,
I got this artwork from Bifi:

The bigboss ship sucks, but the player's ship is awesome.
We could rip that one.
Maybe anyone knows who drew this ??

ah well, about the what is it part, you'll find out when you finish the game Wink
INdeed, the main ship rocks... I'll see if I can rip it out and fix it a little.
Wasn't space manbow released on another system ? turbogfx maybe ?

hmmm, tried a zoomed out version of the ship (as taken from the metal boss version), but it didn't work out in the composition Sad
And it's rather difficult doing a perspective version based on the pictures.
However, I did cut out the ship from bifi's artwork, easy to cut out and easy to integrate as well.

Norakomi, you may consider contacting Hnostar (a Spanish group of three brothers). They are basically graphic designers and Photoshop masters. If you ever had a copy of their famous magazine you will be sure they are the guys for the job. However, I don't know if they are still interested in MSX.
