I can see them now!!!!!! On the legs one does the front of the legs cover the whole leg, round part, flat part, foot. Or just the flat part or what?

The front leg template should start above the foot and go up to where the leg meets the hips like on this figure:

Thanks!

Here is one of the most popular ones:

http://www.inkscape.org/download/?lang=en

If you do not like that one, search "free vector drawing program" using google and a whole bunch come up. I cannot tell you anything about them because I use Illustrator, which is not a free program. Hope this helped!

I highly recommended Inkscape for any one learning to design decals.

It's what I use.

Personally, I would recommend a combination of GIMP and Inkscape, they're both great for different things.

^Meh, Gimp is really for editing photos. If you're doing decals, Inkscape is the way to go. I used to use Gimp, but the brushes can be kinda small/pixelized.

^ I suck at inkscape. It's good for some things, especially getting the decals to the right size quickly and easily, while still maintaining color quality. Other than that, I haven't figured it out in the slightest. :(
