TOPIC | Opinions and Advice?
So I'm planning on opening a hatchery sometime (when I finally gain enough treasure to expand my lair a few more times), and I was making some breeding cards. I was wondering if anyone could give me some opinions and/or advice on them. I'm mostly concerned about the background, whether the pair would be popular and whether the pair names/prices are suitable (too high or too low?).

@Wolfsbaneavis I like the backgrounds, and the names seem fine. The last pair is my favorite, since I prefer tight ranges. I'm not sure how other people feel about them, but huge ranges are just too big of a chance for me.

the backgrounds are good! however i feel you run into a few problems with legible text- particularly the pink text you used for the genes on pink background. it's not incredibly bad but looking at it for a while hurts my eyes. Your names are just fine ^^

Popularity-wise, i think I would be most interested in the last two. clown/current/smoke isnt my favorite combination & deaths fortune is just outside my lair aesthetic.

see you when i get home
I agree with Zif. The text is hard to read. One surefire way to make text legible is to use outlines. If you're using GIMP as a photo editor, select the text layer and tell the program to do "alpha to selection." From there, create a NEW LAYER (you don't want to know how many times I've messed something up by accidentally doing this over the text layer!) and right click. Go to Selection -> Grow selection, and tell it to expand by anywhere between 2-10 pixels. Fill this layer with a different color, then make the text a contrasting color.

I hope this helps! Good luck! ♥
