That you did. Top drawer.

I'd recommend changing the background color, though. Easy way to do that is to take a screenshot while you've got your browser up, copy that into Paint, and then steal the color using the eyedropper.

It's pretty good. But I would recommend downloading Inkscape (for free) off the internet. Then you can make images that don't look so pixelly.

Yeah you should really use Inkscape instead of paint there's a good guide for it on the web (Google it)

I did use inkscape but I shrank it on paint.

I sort-of fixed it!:smallbiggrin:

pro-tip, if you saved it in a paint file, then you quite possibly saved it as a jpeg, you dont want to do that with close up pictures, or pixel arts/sprites or quite small pictures, since it can cause pixilation of your picture. you want to change the file you save it as to a bitmap or something.

if you still have the inkscape save, try it again.

although, you may already know that... and i just bored you and sounded pedantic... sorry if you knew :smallredface:

also if you just do it in inkscape and save it as a bitmap, you won't have to have a background, also this is probably better suited to the OotS Style Art/Fanart Showcase III (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=122057) thread
