Carry on my wayward simpsons

for lack of anything better to do, I’ve gotten back into the Simpsons, saw an episode called pixelated and afraid. now I love when Marge and Homer reconnect, so I’m rather fond of this episode, and well I had to go make a watch face. I wanted to make a battery level using homer’s weapon, but it looked so small, I wound up abandoning it, but still here we are.

I pictured something quite different when I saw the first 2 words of the subject :rofl:

Since we are into double entendres . I would like to see Homers Weapon . I hate the battery Icon on a Face like that . Not criticizing yourself . Perhaps we should come up with a little Egg Timer or something . Marges Necklace would make a great indicator .

I cleared the gems from her Necklace so just slip an Arc Progress Bar behind .
If need help with that get back .
Sorry it is only 640X640 . Nothing else fits on here .

what a marvellous idea, thinking outside the box! yeah I hate the battery icon myself. love the necklace indicator that’s just brilliant!

okay so I put the weapon in, with a wolverine head in, but the blasted thing is going in the wrong direction. and as I say, it’s very tiny.

UPDATE

lots of searching trial and error, but I did it, looks like the necklace idea will be easier to see though.

FURTHER UPDATE
played with repositioning and sizes, see how that fares.

Great stuff. Some time to get something going the other way just add a - minus sign up front. Then start in a different position / rotation of course.
I was being very cocky there. But most half decent graphics packages have a magic wand that lets you delete certain colours to leave transparent. Takes a bit of playing with the tollerance but great for playing with that kind of image.
