Hats and masks are all teh rage in the superhero icon community. ;) I just wish that all the icons were bigger so that I could do some proper hats. :D In addition to the ones that I have done, Uau has examples of wizard hats and you have certainly done ome helmets. ;) I think a sports ball cap would be easy enough, also sombreros. But the resst...hard to tell what they are at this low resolution.

Your Oswald Cobblepot and Edward Nigma icons look great, Manikus.

If you want to make more detailed hats, you could make all the icons double-sized. (Not a serious suggestion, as that would mean redoing everything else).

Are these drawn double sized and reduced, or drawn full size?

I actually have about a half dozen or so double-sized icons from this run sitting around on my hd. I will upload all of them when we have all the NPCs. :)

If I am using a game sprite to start with, I work at double-size and then reduce (and retouch) for the NPC icons. If I am starting with an Uatu icon, like I did for Penguinn and riddler, I start at normal size and there is no double size version. I am conidering when this is done making double-sized icons of the ones that don't have the larger size already.


I have another dc villain to offer today - Harley Quinn. I went with the classic look, but as with many of the other Gotham-related DC icons, I plan on doing an updated look as well (updated = New52).

Great icons, Nol! :DVery nice 89s/90s hair for Cheetah.

I'm adding to the DC villainy with Ra's al ghul and Killer Croc. I think I may need to do an update on KC, not that I look at his head, he kind of looks like a giant mutant Ninja Turtle without his shell. ;)

The next 5 DC villains have been done already, but it can't hurt to have two icons to choose from.

Gorilla Grodd
Harley Quinn
Killer Croc
Lex Luthor
Poison Ivy

Very nice. :D

What I have decided to do with duplicate icons is...
the second one that gets posted gets a "2" at the end of the name and put in the Resources folder. ;) The NPC will by default load the one without the "2", but the designer will be able to easily change this.
