    Exclamation Teen Challenge Badge! Your input is needed

    So I asked Droid if he could make a TC badge, and being so amazingly awesome he went ahead and actually took the time to make one

    Here's what he came up with so far and I think it's just genuis

    Here's an idea of what it might look like:

    Teen Challenge Badge! Your input is needed

    Teen Challenge Badge! Your input is needed

    Obviously the contrast and colours of the dummy are easily edited, same with the star colours.

    And a preview of it on a user's post:

    Please feel free to tell me if you had something else in mind or if you don't like something about it, this was just a quick idea.


    So guys, anything else, colour wise etc? I personally actually love it, no lies, I just think it's such a genuis idea.

    Tell me what you think so I can get back to Droid

    I'm not at all struck by the pacifier ( especially the pink ) Just a little too immature for my tastes. Otherwise, I think it's brilliant. Thanks for the mock up Droid.

    I like it a lot, and wish i could enter these...but not a teen anymore!!! Anyway, I can understand some of you not finding this to "attractive"!!! It is not easy to represent something related to the young age, the art/fantasy world, but I would suggest a small wooden sword, like the ones kids used to play with in my days!!!!

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I'll try a couple of different colour schemes, and maybe do a small wooden sword too.

    Thanks for all the kind comments.

    Oh droid, that's awesome, I got more feedback from people over msn etc and they all think it's great, yeah anything else you can think of is very cool.

    I'm thinking about the stars, maybe 4 small ones, one big one to make a total of 5, smaller one's more near the bottom of the dummy/sword and then underneath the big star write a total if it goes above 5?

    Thanks droid, honestly means a lot

    I don't really have anything new to add, but would also like to say that I think a wooden sword would be a better representation than a pacifier. Thanks Droid for doing this. I think this really brings the Teen Challenge up with the other weeklies.

    hmmm... I don't particularily care for the 'dummy'...

    perhaps some sort of severed head? no?...

    acctualy, that makes little sense, I do believe the wooden sword mentioned earlier would be best..

    I think making the sword darker than the CA bg (maybe around the colour of the text?) would be better than the one xinranliu has up (I like the overall pic though!)

    I personally like the pacifier, but a wooden sword would be cool too.

    i tried to draw a wooden sword crossing the pacifier but it came out shitty as hell >.<

    would be awesome to see the pacifier in bronze silver and gold hues though ^.^

    I'm all in for a wooden sword. Getting a badge would increase the popularity of the challenge a great deal!

    i actualy love the dummy idea, its clever and easy to read that it is for young people quickly. the sword is cool but less clear what it represents

    The sword sounds cooler, definitely don't like the pacifier thing, it's kind of demeaning. Also i think somebody had mentioned a crayon and I thought that was a clever way of illustrating young and art. This is all a great idea though, can't wait to see the final results!

    So after browsing the interwebs and reading up on how to do pixel art I made some suggestions.

    So far I reckon the single crayon should be turned the other way, the sword needs some cleaning up, not sure about the others. What do you guys think?

    I think the pacifier was a great idea, althought the crayon is pretty cool too. Should be pointed to the left corner thought.. In my opinion..

    ok so how about you get a star upgrade every time you win a Tc? so you start with 1 star and go to 6.. anyway hopefully i will still be a teenager when this gets put into effect.
