    Default [RELEASE] Kirby Theme
    I was looking at some of the apps and the apps that focus around games usually just compose of a picture of some character as the background and some random faces or icons as the app icons. I wanted to make a theme that looked really nice. I had already submitted this to cydia through bigboss. I should submit it here next time I make an app.
    It includes sounds and App Icons for iPhone users as well.

    It would be better if the Kirby characters actually portrayed the app they are representing.

    I mean, I see "Icy", and "Voice Memo" and such. Those are pretty cool, but you could do better with the other ones.

    I used to do sprite editing, it's pretty fun and, I feel, a lost art. You should try and blending with some other sprites to give it a more "customized" feel. For instance, what immediately comes to mind is getting a sprite with Kirby holding a sword, editing the sword out, and placing a sprite calculator in his hand, or even a gameboy for "games" folder (like the gameboys they held in Mario & Luigi's Superstar Saga).

    Cool idea, could be executed better.

    Just my two cents, though.

    As long as you're happy with it, that's all that should matter. I downloaded it to look at it. The 25 icons are very pixilated. Check out this thread for your next theme or to improve this one.
    My icons in photoshop are pixelated
    I hope this helps.

    JekHazit:

    Here is an example of what we're talking about. The first image is what you have as your calculator icon. See how pixilated it is and that it has nothing to do with a calculator?

    The second image is one I just threw together. See how it is crisp and sharp? I have him holding a calculator so that is a quick reference when somebody is looking for the calculator app on their springboard and they don't want to read the labels.

    I added a phone icon too.

    I hope this helps you make a better theme.
