I've made one of Exar Kun. what do you guys think
Edit: Technical difficulties, still doesn't work. Maybe just bandwidth.
All of them.
Fallen_Jedi21, it works if you drag it to the address bar in your browser. It's a great icon for your first time!
Thanks, Ph0enix. Do you think I should try some more?
Of course, that's the only way to get icons uploaded and become a better icon artist
Speaking of upload, shouldn't there be one coming soon?
I'm making more, but when I save them in .gif format, they always lose a lot of color. Is there any way to get around this?
Go into your programs options.
Save at the highest resolution level possible.
Unless youre using MS paint, in which case you need to get a new program.
Yeah, I'm using paint. I only have a pentium II so I cant get any programs that are any good. I'll be getting a new comp at the end of the month, though.
I've got a Dell GXA Pentium II 333. And I've got Photoshop. You just need a bit more memory's all, probably.
Fallen_Jedi21, you did a pretty good job for that to be your first icon, and to do it in paint must've been a hell on software. Plus you added a border...you're a man after my own heart for that.
Keep it up, but i'd really suggest getting Photoshop, or at least a trial version for good measure.
Fallen_Jedi, look back approx 30 or so pages, to around the 145 range.
youll see a link for a free trial of a program called photo plus.
I think Frank Palpitine posted the link, to narrow it down a bit.
I use the program, and once you finish the layers out its quite handy for anything from animations to transparency.
Though paint is still quicker for drawing borders and such sometimes.

If you see me voting at all, look further back, as it was posted just before I got the tittle (possibly jsut after, but I dont think it was.)
WARNING:These are Episode 3 icons from new pictures! (Just incase you don't like spoilers. )
Not bad, but I'd like em better if the border blended a little better.
Heres what I recomend, open in in paint.
Zoom in to max.
Get the color pickup tool.
Find a pixel that's color most blends, make that the border color.
Pop art clones
E2 PadmÃ¨ (Um, this is an e3 Image from the 3SA banner if I recall.)
Row 1: Old Ben Kenobi, CordÃ¨'s Death, Trooper shooting.
Row 2: E2 PadmÃ¨.
Row 3: Fett Pop Art, Fett art, Vader art.
Whoa, all of those are great. Excellent update.
Wes, the image is on an EpIII banner, but it was a promo shot for AotC.

And did you redo [link=http://www.mikedingleyjones.btinternet.co.uk/ff38.gif]this[/link] one ? Much better. Melikes
And did you redo this one ?
No I dident re-do it I just made a new one, I managed to pause it on the right moment so you could tell what was going on in it.
Ah, good job.
I tried that a while back, but wound up giving up.
As is, I dont even have the film anymore, when my system went a while back I lost it.

2 Obi Wan/ E3 Tarkin art/ E2 PadmÃ¨/Fett art/Royal guard/Darth Sidious
3 Mas Amedda/ Queen Amidala art/Vader art
"Not bad, but I'd like em better if the border blended a little better. "
Actually,I made it bright red on purpous.Kind of a thing to show that Anakin's moving towards being Vader. Thanks for the suggestion though.
I should have a new update halfway soon, Ive been playing with a few new ideas.
