    My favorite color is yellow and I made this minimalistic image.

    Wrap that image in QUOTE tags, and it will be more forum-friendly. =)

    That was precisely my concern, but if there's no issue, then I have no issue. :)

    So far, the images that I've posted have been in RGB Color Mode with 8bits/Channel. They are, however, PNG type image, which could easily be converted, if I'm not mistaken.

    Just curious... Where did you find the 'icon' requirement information?

    I'm open to all suggestions, but I haven't used the eShop in months.
    Would you mind posting a video or screenshot of what you are referring to? Thanks.

    In my mind, I was envisioning this as part of the "other" yet-to-be-released launcher, but I'm open to assisting other developers as well.
    I'm still brainstorming 1:1 icons, at the moment, but I'm open to design suggestions for them too.

    @TiMeBoMb4u2 will you be adding users icons to OP or is this thread just for your work?

    When has the homebrew scene been 100 % concerned with copyright? Besides, it's not like it's being sold to users so, fair use and all...

    The use of copyrighted material is never a good Idea. This gives Nintendo all the more reason to take this down with a lawsuit.

    Did I use any copyrighted material?

    Unless it comes to a point where this thread gets serious attention from the devs (doubtful, but plausible), I don’t plan to post other’s work to the OP. However, if you want to post your relevant conceptual material, be my guest.

    Love the first one although while the bubbly effect is nostalgic to the Wii homebrew it's very dated and unpolished which doesn't mesh well with the switch's rather minimalistic and sophisticated OS. I think something like that would be nice but make the white and red straight matte kinda like how the Switch homescreen is and have a big Switch logo pop up on the screen with an effect like it starts out small and quickly gets larger so the pop up isn't so abrupt and then "the homebrew launcher" or something like that would fade in over it. When exiting the launcher the sequence can be entirely reversed with the color scheme black and white instead of red and white.
    It could also work if you had the Switch logo spin in from the left side and then settle in the middle with the text fading over it and then when you exit the logo will spin off the screen to the right side with the text fading out.

    @OP may I ask which font you used in your designs?
