Naked War iOS icon concept

Naked War on iOS is progressing well, and close to being complete, but I've avoided drawing an icon for the game up until now, mainly because I hadn't had an idea of what the heck to draw.

I didn't think the comic-style promotional art for the PC version would look good at 72x72 pixels, and also wanted something that captured the head-to-head battle idea in a striking image.

Then I had a brainwave just after the Christmas break! This symmetrical design popped into my head fully formed while I was working on another project, and I just had to sketch it down quickly before I forgot it. I scanned it in and scribbled some colour on it with Photoshop and showed it to John. He seemed to like it, meaning it had passed the first test, so I did a tighter sketch, and started worrying about how I would actually draw the image.

The image looks like it would work in vectors, but I'm much more comfortable in Photoshop, so it will probably be done as a bitmap.

I'll post the finished version in a follow up post.
