Hi Korath

Did you ever do the unique Portal Simplified Chinese Portal symbol with the 3 rarities ?

I hadn't been aware it was different. Have any large raster images? The one's I'm seeing on Google are too small to work from.

There's none online, I have created those out of the Simplified Chinese cards that I own, but I'm really not an expert when it comes of creating symbols:
http://www.magiclibrarities.net/332-rar ... index.html

And, yes I can provide HQ scans of cards with the 3 rarities (just let me know precisely how you want me to scan them and if there's a specific MTG color that you will prefer to work on: White, Blue, etc.).

Regarding Portal, never the color rarity was used in any sets. For Portal Second Age it was only used once as a Rare in the Battle Royale Box Set (Hurricane).

Red or maybe green would work best - the symbols would be harder to isolate on white or black, and there's a large difference in brightness on opposite sides of the symbol on blue. Highest DPI your scanner will do, without any postprocessing, please. Cropping to just the symbol is fine, so you don't have to upload something huge.

I make no promises. I know my way around Inkscape, but I'm very much not an artist. I can't even get stick figures to come out looking right on my own.

Ok will do the 3 rarities on Red and Green cards 1200 DPI as soon as I can, then will provide Dropbox link. jpg or you prefer png ?

Png would be better, but at 1200dpi it shouldn't matter much.

Scans sent to you in a Dropbox file by PM. Let me know if I can improve anything before I do it on green background. Thanks.

The uncommon and rare actually look the same as the Gatherer images I posted here, except with flat coloring instead of gradients. I can make those and a black common symbol based on the Portal symbol we already have (the upper-left one in this image), but making the spokes and outer edge wavy is beyond my competence.

Do all of the common symbols lack the outer white outline? Or just on some colors of cards? I can't imagine that showed up well on black cards at all.

All the common symbols lack the outer white lines except black or maybe the black surrounding is mixed with the black color of the card:

Only the M and U versions are in the ZIP file. Is there any way to get the C and R versions, too? I guess they're all in the .ai file, but I don't own Illustrator.

Really appreciate the effort made in making these!

Has anyone made symbols for the MTGO sets like the treasure chest and legendary cube and the Magic Online promos?
