I'm getting LOTS of messeges and seeing LOTS of this in the forums about how to make designs and transparency.
so i'm gonna to a tut for the people who uses PHOTOSHOP. I'm sure all versions have the pen tool so ya.


First you go to File >> New and there's a popup. and the bottom of that pop up should say "background contents" click on the drop down menu and select transparent.
that's how you make transparent

So you go to designs on crunchyland and download the base you want with the link they give you, and then you open that in photoshop. it's probably transparent already and the dimension's right so make a NEW LAYER.

My demo'll be the chibi cuz i like making designs for that better. i'm gonna do this image here cuz i cant think of anything right now

This is pretty similar to the hair tut but somewhat different too.
so First. select the PEN TOOL and at the top select paths icon instead of shape layers

Now you zoom ur avi base to 300%. o ya make sure your brush diameter's at 1px and ur color plate is black


Now you make an outline of your item on the new layer you made a while ago with the pen tool.

now right click on the path u just made, select STROKE PATH> and in the dropdown menu select BRUSH. DO NOT check mark the simulate pressure.


After you click okay, right click the path again and click delete path, then all there is should be a black line.
After you finish all the lines you need, make a new layer , and drag the layer to be under the line layer

again outline the whole image again with the pen tool, this time change the color palete to the color u want ur design to be

right click on the path >> fill -> foreground color >> okay and then right click and delete path.
Use the same method to do the shades. but make sure the shade layers are ON TOP of the base color layer and BELOW the line layer

AFter you finished all that. click on the eye infront of the avatar base layer to disable it so all you see is your design. Then go to File >> Save for Web select PNG in the dropdown menu

and save it


here's what i made but it don't look good



I hope this helped and will reduce messeges saying stuff about how do u make designs...transparent ...blahblah...etc.

It shouldn't be that hard once you get used to it....

could if you haven't post this in the crunchyroll design forum?

they had one?

Ummm... a couple of tips [or requests] for designers:

-- Try using vector tools Vector images tend to look smoother/neater... but if you want to pull off a highly-2d effect, then pixel art would do well.

Vector: http://dezignus.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/anime-pictures.jpg vs Pixel: http://farm1.static.flickr.com/181/440402457_ba2a7e8716.jpg?v=1175814121


-- Make use of transparencies wisely. If you plan to make eyes or contacts, you don't need to copy the whole head. Doing so will cause problems (e.g. head stacks over the hair)

-- If you want your items to sell well, try to make it blend in with other items. For example, if you plan on making hats, make sure that it fits well with a variety of hairstyles. Don't fit it too close to the head :)

I was posting for people who were asking about vector and pixel and all that... it doesn't hurt to give a comparison Good job, btw.

//edit:
Was meaning to post this at the suggestions thread. Maybe they should merge all design-related topics or somethin >_<

//edit II:
props to pikangie for the cool items :)
