Okay. So I got most of my little critter colored. Then I saved her, came back, and she was all these off pixels randomly all over. What should I save her as? o.o

It sounds like you saved it as a JPG file. That format kind of makes it kinda "smudgy" looking. Best bet is to save it as a GIF, JPG, or BMP - but the final adoptable to be given away could be turned to JPG if you like.

I keep my templates as the default PSP format and convert the finished adopts to GIF most the time. Smile

Okay, this is my first time trying these babies out and I used a template from Hasbro that I got somewhere....I think coloring pages...sorry, I can't remember! All of them are 150x150, roughly avatar sized. You are more than welcomed to snag if you wish.

No cutie Mark...
The pony herself:
And%20then%20I%20played%20around%20with%20a%20couple%20of%20backgrounds: With%20Cutie%20Mark...I%20added%20a%20snowflake%20as%20the%20cutie%20mark%20and%20I%20know%20there's%20a%20Snowflake%20pony,%20but%20obviously%20this%20isn't%20her!%20XD!

Perhaps I'll do more of these since it was sort of fun.... *gasp!* XD!

You should offer them as adoptables Wink

Just make a new thread and post these. After that, have a list of what people should include when requesting one. You would modify your adoptable to dit their pony. It's a lot of work Smile

For example threads, look in this forum

Im a bit confused how to use the pen tool. It puts in anchor points ad ends up filling the whole selection when im done, instead of giving me just a coloured line. I dont know what im doing wrong. What setting is your pen tool on?

this is what I ended up with and gods it looks horrible, but I didnt delete it cause I love the colours and design www.mlparena.com/galle...p.jpg.html

Here's a screen shot of my pen tool settings. I'm not sure if it will help, but worth a try. Easier to explain, anyway.

I also make sure that my background is set to transparent or else I get a filled-in shape or wacky looking polygons.
