You wouldn't annoy me if you come around with a new symbol each week!

No really, I'm the winner here as I have a new symbol in my Heroscribe now.

This is the link to a zip with US and EU Monster version, plus multi color versions (including one in hero-red)

have fun, don't stop making symbols please! And show us the quest you make with it.

Quests were made! although not quite ready for publication yet. I'll try to get some of those out by the end of the month.

Meanwhile, I've got another couple of icons I'd like to add for the next Quest Pack to follow.
First, a Chupacabra monster icon!

Second, something a little different. I'd like an icon for a Squirrel Trap:

And while we're on the subject of icons, I'd like 2 variations of the "Giant Wolf" icon (from Mage of the Mirror): one which is light blue to use for a "Frost Wolf", the other as a 1x1 tile icon instead of a 1x2 icon to use as a "Lesser Wolf".
Can you do those for me Anderas?

I migrated to my new pc some months ago. Seems I have forgotten this code there... Thanks for the heads up Mohawk!

Ok it's done!

Man that was a piece of work :-) Took me three hours just because nothing would run anymore on it's own free will.

Hope everything works, I tested them a little bit but not thouroughly.

Giant wolf --> allinonemonsters (yes it is double)
Giant wolf little brother --> allinonemonsters
Chupacabra --> allinonemonsters
Squirrel trap --> allinonetraps

colored giant wolf, little brother and chupacabra --> colormonsters

Download it here (and come back to me if it doesn't work please)

Hey-presto, thanks for that!
I loaded in all the assets into my All-in-One HeroScribe, and I can confirm that they all work to satisfaction.

Now it is time to pay you back by releasing some Quest material.
The weekend is coming up soon; that'll be a good time for some good work.

(Also, if you're curious as to what a "Squirrel Trap" does: it does exactly what it sounds like.
You pass under the wrong tree and a Squirrel gets into your stuff and makes off with some of it!)

Does anyone use their images in graphic design?

I use images in graphic design. Nowadays, the services of a graphic designer are very much in demand and are highly valued. Of course, high results are obtained only by developing and increasing their skills and knowledge. If you love what you do, you are bound to succeed. I would advise you to use some modern tools for it, which allow you to implement the craziest ideas into reality. If you work most with color projects, you might try a [url=https:/crello.com/colors/palettes/vintage-color-palette/]vintage color palette[/url] to create a template. It seems that graphic designers often use such services that help them work more productively.
