Also I tried a new technique for this version, instead of using a 40% opacity I grabbed the highlights and shadows only, place them ona color to see the difference.
I can post the technique if you prefer it, its a few more steps, but it keeps more detail and shows colour better.
I can only explain in in photoshop (cause I dont care to learn anything else for simple image editing)
and if anyone wants photoshop I could point you to a place where you can get it.
Oh and Mogwai Prime you can copy PNGs, and photobucket is not the problem.
instead of [right click > copy image] use [right click > save image as] its when you copy straight to your clipboard that kills transparency.
oh and i have a question, I assume you will be using a blank colour background behind these pngs to change the colour (ingenious btw)
Is it possible to have jpegs behind them to make custom paintjobs?
