This is what I meant when I said I hate to butt in. But I hope you paid attention to the blurb on how I did it, because learning something is the real point of this work after all.

I'm pretty sure most everyone here has at best 50% hit rate :P, so don't be discouraged. Concepts are important, so a contribution is a contribution.

Don't get discouraged!

I know that's easier said than done, but remember that you're part of a process.

Look at me... There I am, in Wesnoth's Art Credits, right between mog and Sangel.
How much of my art is in 1.1.12? None. Absolutely nothing. Zilch.
So why am I in the credits?

I provided artwork that was needed at the time... However, someone improved upon what I did and my work was written over.
I also provided artwork that Miyo then edited (some of it quite severely), which got into the game. That stuff has been fully replaced 3 times over.

Does that upset me? It did a little at first... But then I came to terms with the fact that I was part of a process and that, even though I didn't create something from start to finish, I had helped shape the future of Wesnoth.

Okay, sorry for whining. :P Good job to Pickslide - though, I can't find the gradient you describe in your blurb on GIMP, and Photoshop is hella expensive. :? Anyway, I'll find something else to do here...is there anything yet that needs TCing? I'm at least good at that.

I hate to turn this thread off-topic but I looked up the gradient. It should be under shape options and its called "bi-linear".
