Aim: To remake the weapon icons in this picture in better quality.

 

Progress: All Icons are done.

Note: The detail on the weapon icons made is by zooming as hard as I could and stressing my eyes :monocle: as hard as I could.Each icon takes upto half an hour to draw and retouch.While It won't be useful for everyone,just something I made for my passion  :colgate: .and the request by a member of this forums three years ago.While he is banned from forums now,that doesn't mean I won't make this thing.

Looking good.  :^:

 

The only thing i don't like is that the weapon's outline are too thin.

 

Other than that pretty solid work.

Thanks for the feedback.Actually I was very unsure about the thickness,so I decided to draw a 12px thickness line.The icon structure seems slightly off from original SA game though.

All icons are done.Download and gve feedback.The detail in the weapon icons are half identification and half speculation.I've done my best work  on this considering the quality of the source.

That isn't problem of rockstar.The person who created this source(Vadim M) has scanned the Brady games strategy guide.
That's why they look sh*tty.

They look good. That AK47 is almost impossible to remake.

I think you cut lower side of the icon of Flamethrower. If you look closely, it's going outside a bit. 

Here's a quick one i made for example: dNVBNjg.png

nice icons!

 

i too had a go at remaking some of the beta weapon icons back in February 2016 and i understand how tricky it can be sometimes to get certain sections as accurate as possible. regarding your MP5 icon, there are a couple of sections where the inside corners of the icon are not transparent. take a look at my (far from perfect) attempt and compare it to the image from BradyGames below it and you will see that it's just due to the quality of the scan that makes it seem as if the corners of the icon are filled in:

EDIT: here's a somewhat clearer image of the scrapped mp5lng icon.

Thank you for it.

First thing is that I was blinded by the weapon counter,and couldn't notice that.I didn't depend on original weapon detail too.So that has caused problems.Update in future?

Wel,hmm,It just seems like there is a very fine gap between there.I use GIMP for making icons.It blurs icons when I rescale them for outlining.Perhaps something to do with the software.
