They never made an icon to go with it, and you did. Together, we have a new piece of headgear.

Icons should have a transparant background and be saved as a PNG. Other than that, it looks good. :)

Give us some time to reply :P
We aren't watching the forums 24/7 (though I do come pretty close IMO :twisted: )

I see you already found the option to change the alpha. You used grey pixels for the AA (Anti-aliasing, this makes curves looks more "round"), which would perfectly work with a white background (which you had first) BUT when changing to a transparant background, the background can get any colour ingame. Including a dark grey:

In order to fix those "white" spots. They should be changed to the colour of the hairband (black) but with an alpha channel lower than 255. (I most of the time use a alpha value of 127). That way you can use any coloured background without looking bad.

The alpha value is the transparency of a pixel. Full opacity is an alpha value of 255. An alpha value of 127 is half-transparent.

You have to remove the light gray pixels at the border and replace them with black spots with half transparency.

When you create graphics for TMW which are supposed to have a transparent background I would suggest you to work with a transparent canvas from the beginning. When it is easier for you to work on a single-colored background instead of a gray checkboard pattern I would recommend you to work with a transparent layer on top of a single-colored layer

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