Okay, I really want to learn how to make good decals that are Saber-Scorpion quality, um, how do I do it? Is there a program with a preset template I could draw on, or what? Please help me soon!
Never mind that.^ What program should I use to make decals, what paper should I print them on, and is there a way I could hand draw the decals on a template, scan it into the computer, and color it on the computer?
I use Serif SE pro (yeah, you're gonna have to google it... or just go the the help topic Hayabusa started earlier, it's the topic just below this one as of now). Others use MS paint, and some use programs you have to purchase, mainly adobe stuff.
As for your second question, SS uses these Avery inkjet labels
, and assuming you have an inkjet printer I'm betting they'll work for you. I have a laser printer and use water-slide decal paper.
And lastly, yes, I suppose you could scan a drawing and trase over it, but that would be kinda inefficient and making them solely on the computer would probably be better, all you need to do is practice and get good at it. Now if you really, really, really
wanted to do as you suggested, you could scan the item using your printer's scanner, copy the scanning, and paste it onto the program you use and trace over it, which wouldn't work on MS paint but it does on Serif Draw and with layers it does on Adobe programs. Good luck.
God is good.
