I've finished the Icon pic. I found a chibi pic online, and edited a few stuff. Please tell me if I need to change anything.


Stuff I changed:
 

Hope you like it Smile

Nice. I think you should make an entire series with this character. Anyway, who is she exactly?

Also, since there's Suigintou everywhere, I think it'd feel odd to put in somebody else as an icon.
As for Suigintou chibis, here is where I get them. This is the picture from the splash screen, though I have no idea what the writings on the left mean (main reason I removed them).
Also on the splash screen is the GPL logo, which can be found here. I changed its color of it, no need for it to be red.
Font that I used: http://www.abstractfonts.com/font/15363
For the splash screen, please make the background or the outline dark, or at least not white. Here's how it looks at the moment:
Spoiler:
 
The problem is that the splash screen and the application merge together. There is a slight shadow applied to the splash screen, but that is from the window manager (KDE, I'm running Linux).

I will compile a nightly build now, and upload it. Been a long time since I've last uploaded something.

Lulz, I have no idea who that is. I just google'd chibis.

Allright, so my plan is : I'll remake the whole splash screen, and use
this chibi:
 
as the pic. (I'll render it myself, and set the colors etc. Do you want the same font or should I change it?)

As for the icon, I'll use
the left chibi:
 

About the splash screen : do you want the background transparent, white or I'll add some dark shades?

Also, can you please remove the no link posting for 7 days thingy for a while? I'm not able to post the pic links properly.

Dark shades are ok.

Yes, of course, already did that, didn't know there was such a feature before.

Get some sleep now, don't do like me going on for two days without any and doing that three times a week.
I quite like it.
As for changes, here's what I can suggest:
Make the splash screen somewhat more widescreen. Currently it's 750x500, aim for a 750x450.
Move the GPL logo to the left a little too please.
Add some frame at the edges, like a 1 pixel black or grey line.
The icon's good as is. Perhaps you could make a 200x200px image with transparent background and center this, just to be sure it doesn't get scaled bad by the OS.
These are just suggestions, feel free to change or ignore them. This is your work after all.
Also, it'd be neat if you can send me over the psd. I'll convert it to the GIMP format and upload both to the SourceForge downloads.

Good job again, and get some sleep.

And here's a splash with the latest build:

I don't often say this, but I have to now: I'm really impressed.
Good job. Once I get home today, I'll upload them to the SF page and paste a link here.
There will be more graphics that need doing, but that will be later. I need to code something first, and it will take me a lot of time. When I have new tasks for you, I'll be sure to contact you.

Wow, thanks a lot for finding these. Awesome find!
As far as the icon goes, have you ever seen an animated application icon? Qt expects XPM as a format if it to be built in, and XPM unfortunately doesn't support animation.
I'll find some place to use these, don't worry.

Splash screens can be animated, can't they?

Should I do it?

Sure thing.
I'll compile the latest stable build and post a link to it here for testing as soon as I can.

Sure thing, don't push yourself. Health comes first.

It isn't looking good at all. I even tried to animate some lightning, but I suck at animation. Sorry Sad

S'ok. Also, Qt has some issues when it comes to splash screens and animations. Tried loading a gif, but the animation part fails miserably.
Also, transparency is somewhat strange as well. Tried an image with a transparent background, but it showed a white background (default widget color perhaps?) instead. Setting the widget background to transparent/translucent/non-existent/whatever didn't help either. Only thing that did was applying a mask to the image.
Long (confusing) story short, to make a region of the splash screen transparent, you have to make it with an exact color, and then the application will mask it out.
