    Card Template v1.0

    I spent the last days remembering photoshop, and I decided to create a card template for SE. Now, keep in mind I'm not a pro. I'm not even familiar with most capabilities of the application, but I hope some of you will find it useful.

    ***************** EDIT: Ignore this. That link is dead.
    EDIT: To go to the post with the v1.2 of the template click here .
    *****************

    You can download the latest version (v1.5) here.

    Keep in mind that this template still uses the old layout for the cards (shorter text space, larger health and atatck icons, ...), but it should be ok if you just want to show your ideas.


    *****************
    I have included only values which I found on existing cards, so if you want attack-7, you won't find it. Below, you can find in each parenthesis the values available for each type. The only thing you need to type is the name and the text/flavor.

    How to create a new card

    You can start from the lower layers and go upwards.
    1. Add the card artwork.
    2. Select the Rarity (Common, Uncommon, ...).
    3. Select the card type (Hunter Ability, Human Hero - Warrior, Hero Armor, ...)
    4. Select class icons (Like those on the upper right corner on the ability cards.) If a card has a 2nd icon, you'll need to move it yourselves below the top icon.
    5. Select a casting cost - (Values:1-6)
    6. Icons for Armor, Attack (Sword/Bow/Claw/Magic), Durability-left (Armors), Durability-right (Weapons).
    7. Values for Attack/Armor/Durability. - (Values: 0-6)
    8. Resource cost for hero/ally abilities. - (Values: 0-3)
    9. Shadow Energy cost for hero/ally abilities. - (Values: 1-5)
    10. Health Points. - (Values: 1-6, 8, 26, 27, 28, 30)
    11. You can fill up to 4 lines of text or 3 lines and flavor text. Of course you can add more yourselves if you choose smaller text size.
    12. Card Name.

    ***If a moderator think its good, he could sticky it in the card suggestion sub-forum, so the members can find it. ***

    EDIT 1: A clarification: In the last image you see a ~Finish icon in the icon folder. In case you're wondering, that adds a finish to the title area when you add a class icon.

    EDIT 2: You can find an example card I created here.

    I updated the template to v1.1. You can find it here.
    Some minor changes this time

    - Added health values 7 + 9 + 10
    - Added Neutral Ally type
    - Minor effects to make the numbers look better.

    - (In progress) You can now create cards with transparent background (experimental). To do that you need to make visible the "Card Texture Transparent" layer, and reduce the opacity (30-40) of the "Card Texture" layer. If the art you select is too dark, you'll need to change the color of the text to something lighter.
    ****Not many values are ready for transparent cards. For example only the health 4 + 5 will look good.

    Great tool for people who don't know or can't use photoshop. A really nice addition. Megaupload link though doesn't work.

    Yeah, I just saw that the link is no longer active. I uploaded a second time with the same results. I don't know why that happens. Is there a way to upload a .zip file ~800KB here? I tried uploading a .psd (~1.5MB), but says it's too big.

    Try using rapidshare that went freemium. It might survive there.

    This needs to be sticked into Card suggestion for all that want to create cards.
    Also you should add Suggestions of where to find arts (deviantart known artists for exemple) and maybe mention Gimp as well (wich is free)
    The optional thing would be to give advices on how to balance..

    That would be just perfect !
