Kind of an embarrassing post, but nevertheless:
I was thinking about some ideas for the artwork, but I'm not great at designing and image editing. Furthermore I don't have enough spare time to try make the best quality images I can. I decided to post these prototypes in case a skilled designer liked the ideas and wanted to use them. I know they are bad quality, but hopefully I was able to get my ideas across without spending too much time on them.

Promo: The idea was that the Android's head is curved like that of a cartridge so I stuffed him in the cartridge port.
/ /

Icon: I thought it would be a good idea to use same shape sticker as the cartridges', although you can't really tell.

Feature: Thought I might as well add this picture too. It's for a PSP emulator and I thought it was very well done. (I didn't make it of course, I wish lol) Something similar without Mario would be an awesome feature image for Mupen64+ AE.

Just wanted to squeeze this in too since I finally made an account:
I've been following Mupen64+ AE since Alpha when I found out about it from Epic_bubble's thread about it on xda and I am very impressed by your devotion to the project Paul. You have earned much of my respect and I hope that Mupen64+ AE becomes what you have always dreamed and is very successful.

Haha, I like the androids plugged into the consoles.  Thanks for the entry, good luck!  If anyone wants to run with his ideas, go for it :)

Not yet, I'll probably see if anyone is still busy working on more entries in a couple weeks, and if not we'll start the voting.

Is anyone still working on an entry?  If not, we'll start the voting soon, since there haven't been any new entries in a while.

I was going to try, but my exams don't finish until the 17th so I really don't have any spare time.
I wouldn't be able to match shuy3n's skill anyway lol.

Thanks Paul, I really appreciate the opportunity but I'm pretty sure I'd be delaying the competition for no reason considering shuy3n pretty much has it in the bag anyway :P
I think it would benifit the project if the voting started soon and maybe the graphics could be uploaded along with the new app update coming up to make the app look even more appealing. That is if no-one is currently working on designs at this very moment of course.

Artwork Competition, BEGIN VOTING!!
« Reply #40 on: February 08, 2012, 06:22:15 PM »
Lets get the voting started.  The deadline to get your votes in or modify them will be Saturday.  I will update the market listing and PM the winners to get their paypal email for sending the winnings.  The winners may be required to modify their images (to fit required resolutions or change the colour scheme for example).  If the winner is unable to alter the images to meet the requirements, then the entry in second place will become the winner instead.

Since there were several partial entries, but only one complete entry, I've decided to break the competition down into individual components (otherwise shuy3n would have won by default since he had the only complete entry).  Each component will have several entries with letters by them.  Each component is allocated a percentage of the prize money.

NOTE:  You can click on most of the thumbnails to see more detail.  They are scaled down here simply for convenience.

Few comments before my vote. I really like Shuy3n's work but thought using the android with a moustache on the icon might be an improvement. The M in the metal icon is off-centre which irks me slightly. Finally there seems to be a lot of emphasis on "Android" even though that's kind of implicit.

App Icon
    BOTH BRANCHES:  C

Basic Modifications
    MAIN BRANCH:  C
    XPERIA PLAY BRANCH:  D

Hi-res Application Icon
    MAIN BRANCH:  D
    XPERIA PLAY BRANCH:  D

Promotional Graphic
    MAIN BRANCH:  A

Feature Graphic
    MAIN BRANCH:  A
    XPERIA PLAY BRANCH:  A

Doesn't the first vote get overridden by later ones, 5 votes for an icon? Apologies if I sound a bit critical there is some good work here.

There is heavy emphasis on the icon, but that is because I didn't want folks who like the existing color scheme to only have the option to change the colors.  The hi-res icon is purely for the market listing, so it can be completely different than the icon that shows up in the apps list (being much higher resolution allows for more detail and creativity).  Maybe 5 votes is a little bit overkill, but oh well.. too late now :)

I was mainly wondering why the gradient, metal and paper ones weren't in the first vote but as you say it's done now.
