Are you zoomed in at at least 100% pixels or closer? If you're zoomed out, it has a tendency to skip pixels when moving an object. Also, are you dragging it or tapping the keyboard? Keyboard gives greater precision

just reading this tutorial...

are you guys sure that:
power name (basic) is 20 pixels right of the "power" symbol
and that power name (stage 1\2) is 10 pixels right of the "power" symbol

when I look at the real cards, it seems that the distance is the same for basic and stage Pokémon. The only difference is that the stage ones are shifted to the right. (but no distance change)

i've looked at a lot of cards just to check.
there's a same distance between the symbol and the power name
for basics and evolutions as well.

I've noticed this is true on newer cards. Older cards were basically equivalent to my wording, but it appears to have since changed. Thank you for highlighting this

i've looked at it even more closely
and it seems that there's no special rule where Power names start.

I was comparing it with "Evolves from...".
Most of the times, Power name starts where "m" starts.
sometimes it's somewhere about "o"
and sometimes after "m"

so, it seems that not even the card creators care where to put Power names,
so I guess it's not that important (although, it can have sth to do with the font size of the effects; or with the length of the name)

Their vertical placement also seems to vary as well as horizontal. Evidently they don't care much. Never mind. I like to have at least some rule to work from Thank you for your input.

Hi guy! In fact, I will share some of my technic used in one of the freaking programs for done illustrations: Adobe Photoshop
Here I will post some technic, please feel you free of comment or share your own methods to
So let going!

Tutorials:
1) Lineart color change method

Ok, guys, this is a technic very useful than allow change the color of the lineart easily, this is really useful if you wish give to your drawings a soft feeling, and the good is than allow do degrades and use different hues and color in the same line. Here you can find a example done with this method:
>>http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/29865333/

Step 1: Clean the drawing
First, you have to consider than this technic can be apllied for drawing than have a solid lineart like inked drawings with pens, permanent makers. Also the drawing have to be the most clean possible before of beggin with the nexts steps (you can complete the cleanage digitally painting with white any imperfection like bluers or spot than appears after the scanning). A good Tip is try to do your pic the biggest possible, so in that way if you resize it the little mistake almost can be visible and will be easier for clean them
Here is my image than I will use like example


Step 2: Becoming trasparent the drawing
Now you have to unlock your drawing, for that you have to go in the superior menu and select in Layer>New Layer>From Background.... With that you will be capable of work the layer more freely for the next step in wich we will become it trasparent your drawing.
For that go to the Channel windows and do click in "load channel as selection".


With that you will select the white color in your pic, now only delete the selection and you will have the next:


Step 3: Adding the color to the lineart
Now the last step... now you have to create another layer,this one put it below the lineart layer (the one wich have your drawing) and paint it completely with black. Now go to the Layer window menu and do click with the right button of the mouse on the name of the layer painted in black, it should appears you a menu, do click in the option than say: create clipping mask


Now you can beggin to add color in the lineart, for that you have to go in the "Clipped Mask Layer" and beggin to paint following the path of the linart, doing this you will see than the lineart beggins to change of color.


Working in the "Clipped Mask Layer" yo can create many effects using the different tools, like in this example in I create a degrade using the brush tool, differents colors and the blur tool


I hope than this technic be useful for you. Soon I will post more methods for do your own ilustration for the cards! See you later ;P

I give you the one, the only, DP Guide for Fake Cards e americano! Credit to Cipher DSX and Cascade Gonpory who holds the blanks.

DP Series Tutorial: By Cascade Gonpory

NAME: 10 pixels across (right), 8 pixels down from the Border
Lv. : 5 pixels from the name. Same level
X symbol: 3 Pixels from the Full stop on Lv.
HP: Up 5 pixels from the Picture frame, across to your left 4 pixels
Evolves from: 1 pixel up from the level of "stage?" then 10 pixels right
Level up from: 12 pixels from the end of the GOLDEN holo bar (which LEVEL UP is written in), then 6 pixels up from the bottom of the silver bar.
Flavour Text: Make the font CENTERed and then place it in the VERY middle of the bar, just guess! or you can be TECHNICLE! - While transferring the layer from the symbol sheet, hold down "SHIFT" while dragging the text layer to the BLANK, it should then appear suscessfully in the middle of the blank, and the in it is simply 10 pixels down!
Any ENERGY symbol or POKE-???: anywear above 10 pixels from the "text bar", and 10 across, any extra energy symbol should be placed abon the first energy, and then another 10 pixels to the right. With the Poke-??? name, just link the name and the oval symbol when transferring smile.gif! and other attacks should be no less than 10 pixels under the effect
DAMAGE!: alight it with the attack text then draw it to the right border, it is 10 pixels from there!
Attack text: on the symbol sheet, i have handily added the right sized text boxes, and they should be either 10 pixels below the attack name (which when making the attack name "Centered" drag it down using the same sort of techneque as "flavour text" but just lower) - and your text should be 10 pixels from the left (which will end up being 10 pixels from the left as well, wither side you do 10 pixels, it'll work perfectly smile.gif!
POKEDEX flavour text info (paragraph):align this with the line to divide the region of attacks and pokedex entry. then 10 below the line smile.gif!
Illustrator: 2 pixels up from the bar, and 20 pixels from the right border.
Weakness, Resistance and Retreat Cost: Centre them to the are in the middle of the text, and it's 1 pixel below the text or Weakness, Resistance or Retreat cost
Set number: 2 pixels up from the border, and 30 pixels from the RIght border.
Rarety: 2 pixles up, 20 pixels from the right border.
Set symbol: make the size fit into atleast 17x17 pixels. And it is 1 pixel from both bottom and right border.
