Octan's Decals

Post by Octan on 6/19/2011, 10:03 pm

I am starting to make Vector Decals for Minifigs (Possibly) to sell on Bricklink, and I need your advice on these...

Here is the first one, I still need to clean up the painting and line structure... The watermark is there so this does not get stollen...

• Do you like the colors? ( They are all official LEGO® colors)
• Do you like the design?
• Should I add Camo?

Thanks,
Octan

Generic infantry decal... What would you like to see to make it less simple? Textures, Camo, ETC....

Texture:
I am going for a 'LEGO' style here, with not many textures... Here is what I have:

Lines:
These are the same size LEGO uses...
Muscles:
I will try for them in V3...

Selling decals isn't a business I'd personally get into. Just my suggestion.

Adobe Illustrator (I think it is 150 Euro, cheap for a vector program), and I will work on Camo. Classic Smile
