Any graphic editor which is capable of handling PNG graphics with alpha transparency.

I suggest GIMP or paint.NET
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

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.

It is indeed possible to use photoshop, but not advised because it has a lot of tools you do not need and you have to buy it for a lot of money. GIMP can also be used on a Mac and it's free.

Helmets can be any size. You can use other helmets as an example. the icon needs to be 32x32.

You can find some tutorials on:

The second death frame (bottom right corner) isn't needed. You need to cut out the areas where the head will be. The male set and the female set. You only need the five frames you already have, as the head stays steady.

If you don't cut out where you want the head to be in front of the hat, the hat will be entirely in front of the head. The perspective on the hat is off as well. It needs to be a 3/4 perspective.
