So I've been thinking on creating a few video tutorials on using Adobe Illustrator for creating decals. [snip] because I'm not a native English speaker I'll need to re-dub my video [snip] I've uploaded a time-lapse of the video which demonstrates a technique for creating camo splats
Also I've got planned out a tutorial on creating a torso decal for Sheik from Zelda.
You've out trumped me again.
Just watched the video. I think that the time lapse works fine for showing how to create a camo pattern. But of course for an intermediate understanding of Illustrator or Inkscape (works mostly the same, but then there also is a pretty good camo generator already built in
By dubbing you mean you'll need several tries to record your own voice? Or are you looking for a speaker? I don't think you need either, really. Except if you're using this to improve your English pronunciation of course. Personally I prefer subtitles in tutorials.
Just for the records I have attempted a tutorial too. It just so seems no one cared.
When you're done with your tutorials maybe we all should put our heads together and outline a very basic beginners tutorial, which we'll then adapt to Inkscape and Illustrator (so we end up with two almost identical tutorials).
Looking at the video reminded me of something. I've created patterns before for chain mail shirts and scale armor, etc. Should we open a pattern library? I'm not sure if it's useful, or not. One could just grab it from an existing figure.

so I just uploaded my ghostbusters decals
and would love to contribute them, however I'm not sure how to export an SVG file from photoshop? I created them all with vector shapes so hopefully it's possible but I have no experience with SVG and my limited google search skills only came up with plugins I'd have to pay for to use.
Like Nick said, if you don't want to learn Inkscape or Illustrator (You should seriously consider it though) then just mail someone of us (I'd be happy to) the eps or pdf file.
