    I'm a little concerned that we are almost a week into the contest and only Jedi_Benji has shown intrest and nobody has actually entered cards.

    Oh well, at least this thread hasn't remained totally inactive.

    To get things rolling, I might do a card that won't be counted in the contest, just to have an example to go by.

    What ever happened to the tons of people that entered cards for DCCII?
    DCCIII was almost totally inactive and, so far, this Dream Card Contest is turning out the same.

    To sweeten the deal, I am willing to take your almost finished dreamcard and put the text on it so it will have the official fonts on it (which I have :) ). Just send me your dreamcard all put together without the text on it to bacabachaui@theforce.net. Also include what the text and abilities are, build cost, power, and everything should be. I will take your card image and add all the text and email it back to you. I will need a few days time before the deadline to get it back to you.

    This will be good practice for me. I have tenative plans and hopes that the members of this forum will help me with an Expanded Universe/Yuuzhan Vong ENTIRE dream card expansion where you help me make the cards and I put the finishing touches on them to make them look real. So helping do this for the dream card contest will allow me to realize what my limitations are when we set this goal for the EU set (later on down the road)

    Im guessing that we all create all the cards, rather then each of us make like 10 or so :p

    Also Baca could also enter this contest, Its not likr your judging or anything... :D

    Yea, Baca!
    You should send in a card! This could bring the total winners to two!
    (Plus, one person won't win all the awards, that could look pretty bad!)

    I think I'll take this opportunity and make a cool German "Das Imperium Schlägt Zurück" dream card of the 'Sam Waterston' character.
    This will be a beautiful joke card!

    I will try to work one up. I just need to figure out how to use the magic wand thingy in photshop because otherwise it takes too long to put the picture in and I am still working on some other stuff going up real soon.

    Magic Wand is a bit iffy, Only use it if you have very contrasting colours, like red and blue.

    Other then that click in a spot and itll make a ring with those colours attached to that one :p

    I know, sounds complicated, just play around and ctrl+z when ya screw up :D ;)

    I just use BitMap when I insert my images. Unfortunatly, it ends up with a rather large file.

    Just a reminder, the contest ends November 13th
    -Just wanted to make sure everybody turns in their cards.
    Don't wait 'till the last second. I waited for the last second on DCC III, look what happened. I didn't finish.

    Ok, just get those cards in, I don't want to see anybody get cheated out of this card contest.

    I'm talking about how to get the picture in the frame border easier. I have been doing it with the clone stamp and do it a pixel at a time on the edges where it meets the border. I know there has to be a faster way.

    Indeed there is :D

    First you Use Photoshop and load the picture and the Card.

    You then place the card over the image.

    Use magic Wand to select and deleate the white from the card image area, then position the pic layer under the now clear hole in the card.

    Just remember to keep the card larger then the hole, and it should work well :p

    I should have made the date more "week-efficent".
    If it is ok with Baca and the moderators, I will change the end date to Sunday @ midnight.

    I'm going to check with Baca and let you know.
