Recommended programs: Microsoft Paint (for Steps 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6) and Adobe Photoshop or GIMP (for Step 4).
(Other decent image editing programs may work just fine.)
In a new image document, copy and paste suitable platforms onto the template shown above. Then position your two characters somewhere suitable.
|Paste Layer 2 over Layer 1. Make sure you set the transparency setting correct (white is usually the transparent colour in most cases).|
Now you’ve nearly completed the scene… This is the slightly boring part where you enter all the numbers and stuff ^_^;;;.
|Paste Layer 3 over the finished image from Step 4. Now your battle scene is complete!
Not bad if I might say so myself…
