The Robe’s red lining is supposed to highlight enchanted item.

I am the least satisfied with gloves - both the silhouette and the bloodieg gloves version.

Still, it was fun and is a very neat way to keep my icons consistent.


Some nice silhouetted items above. Here are mine, continuing the theme and colours from the last one. The selection tools are great fun and helped with the borders. Learning the keyboard shortcuts has helped so much and I’m starting to feel like a keyboard warrior with this software.

Items are Shield (broken), Gun, Ammo and Grenade

placeholder shield: longSield-01 and the shield: longSield-icon



Amazing what you guys did. This time I put more effort into it as well, and I’m quite happy with the result (especially with the latter two, as these had a bit more “roundness” to them - something that I struggle with):

sword - a sword
glaive - a glaive? (not sure what it’s called)
wand - a wand
bow - a bow


Placeholder icons and their silhouettes: bomb, bow, lightning and caltrop.


I wasn’t sure where I was going with this but I came up with disabled icons for fire, a pickaxe, fish, and a watering can:

Didn’t really have much time to do all 4 silhouettes but here’s what I could do!

Thought about some star ranking system.

And why not, some good ol ham


Here’s what I managed, I used different backgrounds just because I wanted to experiment.




I decided to try out a few different formats just to see how they looked while getting more comfortable using all the tools of GIMP.

hourglass The first one is an hourglass.
fishingPoleOutline My second one is a fishing pole. I think this one is my favorite out of the four.
bowOutline Then I did a bow.
boatOutline And my final outline is for a boat.

I think all of the outlines could use some work, and I’d like to revisit these using a common theme with a GUI in mind. If I did this again, I’d also create the item that I’d be making the silhouette for so it makes more sense for matching colors.
