OD Minimap Preview Discussion

All assorted discussion regarding Obsidian Depths, options, heroes, and everything should go in here. If you can't think of a place to post something and it's relevant to OD, I recommend it be put here.

OD Minimap Preview Discussion

KR was working on this a bit, I'm really not sure what to make of it. I don't know if it even looks remotely representative of the map, might be better as a skill icon or something. I'm just not sure, it should probably also say Obsidian Depths somewhere across it. When I originally thought of what this should look like, I wanted it to look like Kazrah (Final boss), I'm not really sure if it's even distinguishable that this should be Kazrah or not!

What do you all think?

It'd look cool as the hunter or archer ultimate icon.

It looks too evil to be a good guy icon.

Whether or not it looks like the final boss, it puts the point across that this is a map where there's some hardcore shit that's going to be going on. I dunno, just add some ominous lettering and go with it. Although, looking at it again, the edges of the image could use some blending or something to that effect. At the moment, it looks like a piece of a picture, rather then a whole.

It looks pretty cool.

I think KR may have tried to illustrate the title "Obsidian Depths" with this, because I see symbolism for those words.

And I don't even know what Kazrah looks like, so I can't say anything about it looking like Kazrah.

But this is good. XD

If you want the final boss, maybe have him outlined behind "Obsidian Depths". If you have him all bright and visible, it would be stupid, because you'd know straight away who will you face in the final battle.

Make that eye reflects the boss's shadow, maybe the owner of that eye is Kazrah's minion or something.
