And the fact that you're willing to put so many revisions in with such basic tools is really impressive.


Thank you!!!!!

A version of the Wanted Poster I did. Thoughts?

I like it. If you do a bunch of these and make a single PDF of them all, I'll host them on the RP Library.

It's straightforward and readable, but I am curious what it might look like if you used a font that was thematic yet readable.

If you decide to try a different font, there's a few science fiction fonts that might work. Said fonts can be found for free on the internet.

Dude is doing them in MS Paint.

Imagine what he'd do with a little bit of training and Photoshop.

Like Chesire said MS Paint. One of these day I may try to learn how to use something else.

I hear that GIMP is a good thing https://www.gimp.org/

It's open source (and therefore free). I haven't used it much, since I use Photoshop at work and Photoshop Elements at home. But Gimp is pretty well supported by an active community, including the one thing that's saved me at work, youtube videos. Such as this tutorial here.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeABb8cwdUg

With anything like this, it's going to have a learning curve, and using a more sophisticated program is frustrating at first. But if you've demonstrated that you have the patience to do what you want to do in Paint, then I think you can do it.

Thirding the Gimp suggestion. I've also used photoshop and paint shop pro in the past, but gimp is the only free program I'm aware of that is able to keep up with the paid programs.

I can't offer any technical expertise on how to make computer files, but I would suggest making this into an interactive PDF if possible. If not, just give me an image file of this sheet (once it's finalized) and I can ask Mr. Gone (a buddy of mine who makes gaming sheets and aids in his spare time) to make an interactive PDF version that can have typed text insertable in the proper lines.

No guarantees on when such a PDF will be ready, though. Mr. Gone has been known to be too busy for personal requests from time to time.

I am working on a few more of the certificates. Once I get them all together I will put together a pdf with them. I am not sure how to put together a interactive pdf so I will take any help there.

Perfectly fine. Just like with Blizzard Entertainment and their video games, just say "It'll be ready when it's ready." You get your thing done when it's done, and once it's done, I'll hit up Mr. Gone and make my request. just like the old saying: "Hurry up and wait."

In that case, I think you need to have a serious talk with your parents for giving you such an...unwieldy moniker. Laughing

My parents decided not to give me or my sister any middle names at all because Dad thought they were useless. I cannot find fault with that decision. 8)
