      Y/w; but I think you should fix your sig before it gets disabled.

      Like- put the big cards on one line, and my card and the sprites on one line.

              @ Hoshi: I have been working on this, but currently no DS emulators I have used support the Pokemon games. When they do, it will be much easier to get D/P battle screens. Or, we could make blanks out of screens already on the internet...

              Anyways, I'm posting here for the first time, so i might as well give you something. I've been doing amateur TCs for a while now, and I don't plan on opening a shop.
              I like the type tags in the supply thread, but making a minicard with them is hard, especially using the size I am, just smaller than the pinball boxes on the standard TCs. So, here you are, mini types.

              I took the ones from the supply thread (by castrainer) and shrunk them.

                    Okay, I need some opinions on my type icons. Plus, any ideas for new types.

                    First, which 'Magic' type looks better? With or without the rainbow? OR should I make the rainbow bigger?

                    Would the 'Light' text look better as a medium blue color?

                    What should I do for Ghost, Poison & Rock?

                    omg, that water looks horrible. What was I thinking?

                      Here's my new trainer card which involves my first ever finished Kanto Team, back when I was like 7 when the original games were out.

                        Hm... what can I say? It's the normal, 6 pokemon + Trainer + Badges, with only slight differences, then it flips to some mostly-meaningless info.

                        -The eevee behind the trainer looks badly done. You can hardly see the face.
                        -The "TRAINER CARD" text on the info card looks... odd. You should've just copied the other one onto it.

                        Other than that, there's nothing wrong with it... it just lacks much creativity. :\

                          Thing is, I like that style of a trainer card. For some reason I like the basic style. But thanks for the comments. ='] Much appreciated.

                              I have a question :
                              What do you all think of automatic card makers (like pokecharms.com for instance) ?
                              I think they aren't a good idea because there's no more pleasure in making a t-card. It's just... automatic. Meh, I can't explain it properly.

                                @slama: I don't like giving bad news, but here it is. It isn't a very good first attempt in my opinion. First, the trainer "sprite" still has a different outline. If you really wanted to use that image, you would probably have to manually crop off or recolor its border. Second, the pokemon seem to have been shrunk. Did you use the "Select" tool to srink those? That's not a good idea. For pokemon, usually your best option is to take the pinball boxes and crop off the parts of the pokemon outside them (I think this is what you did with the trainer), instead of shrinking them to fit inside. Third, if you TC is going to have text, your card would look better if it had Draw Opaque turned off (when you have the "Text" tool, below the toolbar you see two pictures. Choosing the one with the dotted outline you can see through turns off Draw Opaque). If you did that, it would probably be best to choose a different text color for that background than black, it would be hard to read against blue.

                                The good news: The light blue/dark blue combo works nicely for standard paint colors. The oval (or rounded rectangle?) that has the word DEX: in it is nice, the black border helps it stand out from the background.

                                All in all, not a bad first try. There are things that need fixing, but you seem to be on the right track with the basics. A tip: don't make your first TC from scratch, mess around with some templates from the supply thread before diving in.
                                5/10

                                @ze_gobou: I understand what you're saying, it's not fulfilling like making your own. There's a limit on how many different things can be made using automatic, but making one from scratch or even from a template has more possibilities.

                                    The middle one is the best. Don't try to put people, or anything distracting in the background. It just makes the card look bad.

                                    Hmmm... try to not transparicize white. It'll mess with their eyes, and the bodies of some pokemon. On the first card, notice the magnet-thing. See how you made it's body invisible? that's not good. You did alot of that on the second card, also. It didn't do that on the third one, though, so good job... except for the background. Try simple backgrounds.

                                    Other than that, they're decent cards. Good job

                                      i think what you mean with the white is to go in afterwords and color the white back in

                                        Actually I believe it's simpler than that. Just fill in the background with some random color that no pokemon has, such as bright red, and use that as your transparent color while you're adding the pokemon to the card.

                                            It looks like the DP card. I don't know what to say. It isn't creative or original, but there's nothing 'wrong' with it.

                                            You do realize that it's like- 80 pixels over the sig height limit, right? :\

                                              That was my intention. To make it as authentic as possible. Coz quite frankly, the templates i find everywhere are just terrible.
                                              So i recreated the real deal from scratch.

                                              And dont worry about the sig limit thing, once i get home, i'll fix it

                                                It's 18 pixels over the width limit now. xD

                                                Um... why 'recreate' a card that nearly everyone else will think is just an edit of the DP card? I mean, I wouldn't have thought that you made it if I didn't read your post. If you're going to go through the trouble of recreating it from scratch... why not just make your own instead of copying someone else's? :\

                                                ----

                                                I wanna make real Trainer Cards! xD I think it'd be fun to do. An updateable card. Make tiny, transparent pockets for the sprites, and print out one of every pokemon. I have to do this now. xD

                                                I'll show y'all if I ever get done.

                                                  This isn't my first trainer card, but it is the first I have made from scratch, as it were. Without templates.



                                                  What you think?

                                                  The trainer custom sprite is mine, and props to DarkAngelX for the Pokémon Script collection of fonts - I hate lining up individual letters, even if it does give a more 'proper' result.


                                                  EDIT:

                                                  I fiddled around a bit with the layers - this version has less transparency but more depth.



                                                  I can't decide whicbh style I prefer. Next time I will use elements of each.

                                                    Fabulous. xD

                                                    Seriously, this is the best card I've seen in a while.

                                                    Anyway, I like the pokemon boxes on the first card better, but everything else on the second card. Eh, maybe thesecond boxes are better. idk. Both good.

                                                    Something about the text looks slightly off to me. Can't tell what exactly it is, though. just looks kinda odd. Other than that, perfect. :D
