First thing i want 2 say so i dont get yelled at :: I did take and modify (get the blood off of) the window from "Zombie Testing Lab" by Spaz.

I did that because Im using MS paint and have no way to do a transparent window like i wanted. I hope thats alright since i told u guys and gave Spaz credit and everything

but anyway, here it is.

Okay, so you gave spaz credit and told us. But did you get Spaz's permission? I personally find it pointless anyway, to use someone elses work because you don't have the skills to do the same yet. I'd advise you to take all the work that wasn't done by you out of it, and try to do it all yourself. You'll learn far more, and won't be flamed by the kind fellows of this forum.

Firstly, the man would be a prisoner, wearing prison uniform, not jeans and a t-shirt. Second, he would not be tied up, he would wear a blindfold. You'd need a plain concrete floor, with a security locked door.

There's nothing wrong with Paint. I use it, get the hang of it, which is fairly simple, and nothing can stop you!

No you can't make anything transparent in paint.
 
If you can't do the glass for the moment, just leave it out until you can, i say. If you examine it closely you'll see all it is, is the normal images of people, just all in monochrome. It also has less contrast to show the 'fogging' of the glass.

you can't do transparency in paint, but anything else you can do. there are some really amazing artists i know of that use paint and are very proud of it.
 
do you have ifranview? try saving the images as pngs in paint and using ifranview to make it transparent. i think you can download ifranview.

Why all the madness about trasparency? draw anything behind glass using blues only then highlight the glass.

listen to the moditator.. just because you apologised for taking the window doesn't mean you get to KEEP it.  I know you're new, but that's what i meant by "ripping is unacceptable"
