HELP WANTED! Portraits for next mod version

Basically, I'm trying to rush the next version of the Greatest Mod, which will have new music, better balanced creatures with even more abilities, updated town screens and buildings, more brushes and maps, graphical improvements on terrain, etc.

However, I can't do ALL of this by my own, and there is something which is certainly bugging me and other players, and which I cannot find time to change:

This is switching the creature portraits.

Now a few of you already know how to do this. I do too, in theory, but the other tasks have higher priority for me.

So if you would like the mod to have a more "professional"-like feeling, please help me with this task...



All the mods needs in this department is to replace the "color rings" on the back of the creatures to pure (invisible) black.

This can be done with the portrait tool and then hex edit or so...

Another advice is that you leave a magenta dot/square on the upper left corner. This is what will tell the program which to take for transparency.

Of course, I cannot pay you with money (I'm too poor, besides... maybe in part because I spend much of my time modding :V) , but you will be thanked for your work, and considered part of the "team".

***

On other hand, it would be nice for the mod to have extra maps and objects. So if you have any map or custom object to add to the Greatest Mod, just say it here and it could be added in next version, with due credit.

***

If you want to start, tell it here... so we don't have more than one person doing the same thing :v

Well...
Take into account creatures images don't extract unless you use a tool (I think namerutan's can do it), it's not like the Heroes portraits.

But once this is done just a click will suffice to the change the mod needs on each portrait (bucket tool on photoshop with anti-alias, contiguous and tolerance about 48 - black on the ring)

nevermind, with the new technique I developed here I got to do it myself, the creature portrait stuff (well, doing it still). They are 74 images and paintbucket of GIMP and tools are worse than PS... so it takes a whole night or more.

Other than that, I would still like help of people making maps and map objects, etc. resources for next versions.
