I'm so happy with who I got!
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

*sigh* I just finished drawing my lines, when I realize they are slanted about 7 degrees. Does anyone know of a method of rotating a piece, without silly auto AA or distortion?

Most programs you should be able to turn off autoAA, usually by unclicking a 'High Quality' selection, from my personal experience. I would personally not turn off the autoAA, and rotate it, then just use it as a reference and re-pixel it.

 I suppose I could do that.

it's just lineart?  i would do that no question, or just live with the nearest-neighbor distortion because it will be gone by the time you finish the piece anyhow
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

here's what you do. You index the palette so it's the colors you'll use. Save this palette. Then you go back to rgb colors, and rotate freely in photoshop or something. When satisfied with new positioning, reapply the saved palette so it goes back to the limited amount of colors and you don't get any silly 3002342356 shades of a single color because you rotated. If you're using a sensible amount of colors (say, 16), any aa photoshop drops down through the indexing process will be really easy to manipulate if you don't like it.

Or just, if you have Graphics Gale, use the rotation tool that appears in the center of the selection box, and make sure you don't have AA button checked. Basically what Larwick said.

I'm having fun making this present. I managed to fit their likes [well, except one maybe] into it, and it's pretty epical thus far. :)

I'm stoked my recipient isn't an onion kid, and this is turning out to be good background practice.

It is however practical, precise and controlled. And shit gets done fast and right.
