I was wondering how you made the title for your blog with your character on it.
The header! Yeah, did you know that my header use to be much much smaller and had a picture of me flexing infront of mr. personality? The picture on Wizard101.com still shows this old header.
I decided to go obnoxiously huge with the current header after visiting a few other blogs and realizing that, hey, obnoxiously huge is awesome!
So I use a really old graphics program. Most people use photoshop. I love photoshop, and it was the first graphics program I learned to use, but I have a really old graphics program that I choose over it because it's so easy to use. Most people hate this graphics program.
I'm serious when i say I choose this program OVER photoshop since i have both.
Are you ready?
Microsoft Image Composer.
Oh my word I love Microsoft Image Composer so much.
So here's what I did. I set my composition space to black. I went to the opening screen of the game and took a screenshot of my character. I dumped that picture onto my composition space, then I trimmed him out to remove the background. I typed "The," "Friendly," and "Necromancer" separately and moved them around until I liked what I saw. I plunked my character in front of the words ala magazine style. Now, I liked it at that point, except then I realized it needed a finishing touch: a smilie face for the dot on the "i" in the word "friendly."
and that's it.
