Where do I find images to make into match pics?
The best place are fan wikias. Take this for example: https://zelda.gamepedia.com/Gallery:Link

You can also sometimes find good art on fan tumblrs and kisspng. Or you can just use Google.

I want to learn how to make pics! What free programs do I use?
Well you can use MSPaint for the backgrounds, but if you want to do character portraits, you need something that can handle an alpha channel (aka being transparent) you need Photoshop or Gimp.

The old-as-hell Photoshop CS2 is completely free through Adobe, it might take some work to get it going though: https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/cs2-product-downloads.html?promoid=19SCDRQK

You can also just use GIMP: https://www.gimp.org/downloads/

or just do what we all do and pirate Photoshop

How do I make match pics? I don't know nothin' about nothin'.
Start by asking questions here! Also just play around, that's how we all used to learn. I knew 0 about Photoshop before I started making match pics.

Can you make this pic for me?
Sure! Post pics that you think would be a good match pic here and someone will try to help you out if it's plausible. Make sure pics are high quality and not cropped awkwardly. We'll let you know if it works or not. Memes welcome.

-------------------------------------------------------

CONTEST IMAGE SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

All images must be 240 pixels wide by 120 pixels high. PNG format recommended for background images, required for foreground images.

All images must be composed from official game artwork, original artwork, or in-game screenshots. No "fan art" from outside artists will be accepted.

You can submit foreground or background images for each character. There is no restriction on the number of submissions.

Foreground images should focus solely on the character, with the middle third potentially centered (on narrow mobile devices), be a PNG with a transparent background (as the current images are), the character facing forward or to the right, and reversible depending on which side of the bracket they'll be facing. You can find current default images in the /images/x/char2/ directory here on the site (e.g. https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/images/x/char2/97.png).

Background images should be muted in color (as the character will be in the foreground), but can represent the character and their game(s) as creatively as you want. We suggest overlaying the default foreground images on top to make sure that they'll look good when they're put together.

https://imgtc.com/ for this. See my original post if you need help finding good pics.

Of course, you can only request pictures for these characters:

Ganondorf
Pikachu
Bowser
Zelda
Auron
Tifa
Sephiroth
Link
Mega Man
Cloud
Crono
Solid Snake
Sonic
Samus
Mario

But if you really want me to make a pic for someone else I will. I don't know why you'd want that but I don't ask questions.

I will also do sabotage pics, but be aware that it is highly frowned upon.

Disclaimer: I will always do my best to make pics look as good as possible, but I cannot guarantee Allen will accept every pic I make.

Once I am done, I will then PM you a finished product and you can submit it yourself! You can also post it here if you choose, but I won't publically post these pics unless you want it to be seen.

Thanks for nominating Metal Sonic! He didn't look like a complete turd.

hey Ange you might need to flip some of your characters, Allen said he wants everything "facing to the right"

you can tell he probably DOES need it that way cuz there are some stock Allen pics that have been used already that have been flipped on the front page because they're on the right side of the match and need to look left

also lol we made the same auron pic, whoops. i guess it's one of like only 3 pics he has

Those are the only non-sprite ones I've made. Hyrule Warriors blows as a game but the art is top tier.

I don't know if I've mentioned this but for this contest, the years contest, and I think the 2015 games contest I've been using Snagit since it's a program my company bought for me to use for Software QA at my last job.

It probably doesn't have as many options as Photoshop but as far as dealing with opacity, blur, and all that stuff it gets the job done.

Alright, got stuff in for everyone. There's a few dupes but it wasn't intentional, I made stuff once I knew the measurements and submitted it all at once.

@SBAllen, you don't need to do it this contest but in the future we really could use a way to submit multiple pictures at once :D
