    Lucarioisawesome, they can't be done easily in a simpler program like MSPaint or Paintbrush, your going to need to upgrade to a more complex one, such as PhotoShop, Pixelmator or GIMP. All can be run on both Mac and PC (though you need to run GIMP through X11). You can get trials of PhotoShop and Pixelmator but they both end up costing money (and they cost a LOT). I would recommend GIMP, while slightly less complex as Pixelmator and PhotoShop, it's not too hard to learn to do simple stuff such as Userbars, and it's 100% free.

    You can also use userbar making websites. Thats what I started out with.

    Yeah, but they minimize the customization, and they always leave nasty watermarks on them.

    Well personally, it feels better when you make a good one from scratch.

    Cute, however I don't think the background color matches the sprites. And yeah, the spelling error.

    I'd like to let you know that the userbar has the background cause he requested that. I wouldve put purple or yellow.

    Ah, yeah that would explain it. And Purple would probably fit better.

    Well I would agree that art is about the product, however MSPaint is not a useful resource to make userbars as I've stated several times.

    MSPaint is a very bare-bones program that can't do much more than sprites. Making effects such as glows requires painstaking hours of color finding and drawing in very pixel. GIMP is much better for all other art needs. It's almost exactly like Photoshop, but free.

    About the userbar: it's great, although th bar actually moves in each frame. I suggest centering one frame to match the other so only the sprites appear to be moving.
