ASTRO RANCH - give us your feedback on the icon!


We are working on some ideas for the icon for Astro Ranch. We really want to make the Spicken (Space Chicken) the mascot for the game. These are the two basic images we like so far:

We are going to make him look more like a farmer and give him more personality but which do you prefer? Face on (left) or side on (right)?

All thoughts and suggestions much appreciated!

Side on def.

It is more indirect and you get a sense of 3D.

It also makes us ask questions like: What's he staring at? etc. which is always good.

voted for the icon on the right, it looks better in the small icon image and gives more of a 3-d feel

Right. more identifiable as a spicken. Better reflects the in-game art style. Standing on a patch of green ties in with farming theme, rather than floating mid-space where you just feel like shooting him down!

I like the side on one, but more centered and with the blue background of the left hand one instead of the black.

The stars won't work against the black desktop. I like borders...

I voted for right side. I like ground spicken is standing on - looks like planet what associates with Astro Ranch.

Although - I don't like the frame. I think it make the icon too casual.
