    Darn too slow....X Prime got it before I could post....Er...nevermind this....

    It's not very GOOD though...


    PS: You needed to Flatten the image. Whatever that means.

    Hrm. What you guys said helped, but it still looks off. maybe I just need to try to create one of the ground up? *which I suck at...*

    Time for Jonny to save the day...

    (I'll get back to you in a minute)

    This one should show better on a dark BG:

    I can't really agree with the black though. Hm.

    Just a bit of shading. I can lighten it if it is too dark.

    how is this for a lighter background?

    Hmm... It appears the excessive contrast makes the edge pixels stand out too much here.
