    Default Pokemon Badge Tutorial

    Decided to dedicate a Thread to the Tutorial since I keep getting people to either a) make one [when I already had or b) the location of said Tutorial [without actually trying to look for it themselves]

    POKEMON BADGE VIDEO TUTORIAL
    Unfortunately, YouTube absolutely molested the quality so you have to watch it at Full Screen =[

    Traditional Version of Tutorial [Pens/Pencils] - [Link] | Pixel Version of Tutorial - [Link]



    Feel free to attempt your own badges and post them here, I will try and comment on them and help any you don't understand the tutorial.

    how do you get this tablet thing? could someone make me a typhlosion badge? please?
    This is cyndaquil, who proves that big things come in small packages. If you chose cyndaquil as your starter, copy and paste this into your signature.

    A tablet is a sort of pad that you can draw straight onto the computer with (search google for better imformation ), and most decent computer stores stock them. Probably the 'best' make is Wacom, so you could try their site too, if you're interested.
    As for the Typhlosion badge, I'm sure NorthernLights has created one already, and if I'm not mistaken, they're free for use as long as you give credit.
    Hope I helped!

    Awww, did you try scanning it? I might try doing that to see if it can possibly work, then help you out. My Tablet is very sexy, made by Trust. The pad space is about A4 size, and co-ordinates with the computer screen, so top left on the pad is top left on the screen, etc. I think i got it for about 85, which is pretty good for a Tablet, but shop around to find one that suits you really.

    could someone explain part 5 to me in more depth. It's the only part that I haven't done on my own and I really want to be able to make one myself. This is what I've done so far-remember this is my first try plus I know the grey part is to large.

    Well one problem is that the border is too thick, imagine stain glass windows, the lead lining around them, it's quite thin, but it defines the different block sections of colour in the image. But you've got the symbolic aspect down, so congrats.

    Step 5 is the trickyest, unfortunatly i don't know how to describe it any better - You simply highlight/select the badge itself, create a new layer, and within that shape you shade it in grey tones, then set it to overlay. It will create shade lines onto the layer beneath it.

    Thanks for the help-If you don't mind me asking, what kind of overlay and what settings-it's all so confusing

    It's a part of Layer blending options, just set it to "Overlay"

    Timmay: Try not using any parts of actual sprites, make them completley on your own, you also need to add the dark outlines around the silver lining areas.

    Flygon3X: Yeah, they are. Personally I think you need to make his antenna longer, the eyes smaller, and continue the head line round completley, but that's just my opinion. You also havn't got any highlights on the shading, it's just alternating dark and medium tone.

    ^ Can I just say I love the concept and design work on those badges, but they either appear too sharp or overly saturated.

    Rex Exploder asked for me for a tut on making pixel badges, so voila.

    Pixel style ones are available in my shop now too =]

    I really like your badges. What a clever idea. I was messing about on gimp last night (photoshop is a little out of my price range ) and made this:
