Grass should be tile0608. To manage this sort of stuff there is a spreadsheet available, I'll organise to have it sent to you.

The model didn't have the flowers so I improvised. :D Instead of those big bulky ones, some teenieweenie ones.

I think I'd go with a different font/color for the lettering. A cursive font wouldn't be to far out of line. It looks a little to "basic training" with the bright yellow block letters.

Yeah, I was kind of thinking the same thing... But then I read the thing that said he improvised and made tiny flowers because they weren't on the model and forgot. :wink:

Agreed.

I tried lots of 'em, but couldn't find anything I liked yet. The original 6pixel letters aren't much help either. :wink:

Yeah, they dont always give the best impression of what it should look like at 512x512. You could go with the lettering you did on the larger wreath, that seems to fit with the overall feal of the original. Just think of tacky funeral home props =]P

I couldn't use the same font as the 'm' came out garbled. Also I think I skinned a metal cup, and I'm not sure but the original seems more glass-like.

Well, I said a little... :oops:


I can't brighten the sides like on a sprite because of the 3d. The model also looks more like a wooden chalice à la Indiana Jones and the last crusade, than a glass.

I can't really think of anything to make it looks more like a glass, so I'm open for suggestions...

Not that I have experience with skinning, but can't a transparent skin be done? :?

Apparently; to some extent, yes. That cursed alphachannel thingy, though I have no idea how it would look. In this case the whole model could use it, probably.

Alas, my photoshop-help confuses me more than actually aiding me.

Is there anyone who could explain that to me, like I'm a six year old?
