I'm new to the boards, and I've started to work on my portfolio. I'm really into the graphics side of game art, such as icons, buttons, menus, text, VFX, and GUIs. So, I'd like to start a WIP thread for a HUD design I'm working on, not for anything particular just for practice. It's designed in the same fashion as MEtroid Prime, Republic Commander and Ghost Recon AWF. Not really up to their standards yet (Mainly due to layout) but I'm hoping with your help I can get it presentable.
I didnt have a pretty background, so I used a screenshot from Crysis. Any suggestions is most appreciated. I'm looking for good, solid feedback that will improve this design. Thanks.
