The images lack shading.

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.


You might have heard a certain rumor about me. This rumor is completely false. You might also have heard the other rumor about me. This rumor is 100% accurate.

The outline is pretty good. But it's still not shaded yet (it should take much more than a few seconds). Look at the other weapons, and try to shade it like that. You may "steal" their colours. Also don't forget to shade the outline. and to make it even better, flip the kunai. Good luck. :D

Also take the black outline and make it a light grey this should increase the metal effect. Also make your Middle line, thats threw the blade, the same shade of color the darker side of the bladeis .

EJlol: Drawing thrown weapons in a different angle than melee weapons might be a good idea to distinguish them at first glance.

I read the wiki about the development of items, and ... is better to continue playing only the TMW and leave the items for those who really knows how do them. :?

Thanks to everyone for the help. :D

you will learn please continue them. Also I hope you don't mind but I took yours and made an example of what I think it should look like. Hope you can do the same with the throwing star :)
also don't forget transparency like I did here lol

Edit: and the other direction for Crush
Edit: more directions
Edit: throwing star: sorry im getting carried away this is your project but please make varients you were doing well. :) and I obviously liked the outline usage lol. Also I suggest redrawing the throwing star at a 45 degree angle so it looks correct when placed on the ground. Other than that when I basicly colourd over it was nice. :)
Edit: Also for a nice record :P im back on lame Microsoft so guess what all these graphics were made with good old ms-paint so I had no cheap tricks to rotate them :P.

Thanks everybody for encouraging me.

Meway, what program you use for make these items?

I tried "Paint" and "GIMP" programs but is hard do 32x32 pictures.

(obs:i will search the programs recomended by the wiki...if you have any better please, reply this post)

I am suppose to tell you Gimp. It is a free download and easy found by googleing Gimp download or going the Gimp website. But as I said earlyer I used paint. Because Im 1337 like that :P

If you are using Windows you can also try Paint.net (www.getpaint.net), in my opinion it is much easier to use than gimp. Ofcourse you should use whatever you like.
