Welcome to Pojo's Cardfight Vanguard custom playmat "studio". In this thread, people post their mat designs, offer design advice to other members and develop as a creative community. People also post any designs that they have printed professionally along with useful resources for future designs and concepts. If you're looking for a unique mat design, or want to create your own, you've come to the right place.

Designers: Please note that if you'd like your mats to be showcased please post a link to all finished mats. Photobucket album preferred.

Printing your Design:
Most of the designers on here do not print their mats themselves, as the equipment required to do so is quite expensive. Instead they send their designs to one of the printers listed below, who print and ship designs for a nominal fee (Prices may vary)

Inked Playmats (http://www.inkedplaymats.com/)

Printing another User's Design:
If you see a design by another user that you like, you can contact them about getting it printed. Send a PM to the user stating which design you like and they may charge you a fee for using the design (fees vary). Once the user sends the full-size design to you, you can then contact the printer about getting it printed.

Resources:
Available below are links to all the valuable resources you will need to start designing your own mats. Please have a look through these before asking for anything in this thread as it may already be available below.

Program Resources:
Adobe Photoshop* (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshopfamily.html?promoid=BPDEK)
Gimp (http://www.gimp.org/)

*A full version of Adobe Photoshop must be purchased to unlock all features. Please do not ask for, reference, or imply free versions, cracks, torrents or anything similar in this thread as it is against Pojo.biz's Terms of Service to promote the use of illegal software downloads.

Issues concerning copyrights and art theft:
First and foremost the mats designed and posted in this thread should be intended for personal and noncommercial use only. Secondly, there are some limitations on what you can design. The use of "official" logos is discouraged as your design could be seen as a 'knock-off', intended to fool other people into believing it is an official design. You don't want to get sued so play it safe and make it clear on your design (usually with a line of text in the corner) that it is an unofficial product intended for personal usage only.

Also, please don't make copies or recreations of officially released mats. These threads are intended to show off the creativity of Pojo's designers and we may be watched. If they saw us making 'knock-offs' it could have pretty bad implications for the site as a whole.

Finally you want to protect your own designs. Please do not post the full-sized image in this thread as anybody can pop in, take the image, and get it printed without your consent. When posting an image in this thread you are advised to keep it to screen-size (800 pixels wide is best), as anybody that attempts to print if off will end up with the mass-pixellation that was highlighted earlier. Also, make sure to watermark your images.

About Resolution:
The first and most important thing to take into consideration is the image resolution. Since you are designing something that will eventually be used on printed media you have to take into account the Dots Per Inch (dpi) that your image is set to. Most computer monitors are set to 72dpi, but anything up to about 300dpi and even higher is used for printing. The higher the dpi, the bigger your image will be in Photoshop and the better the print quality will be. 150dpi is usually acceptable for printing, but 300dpi would be ideal if your computer can manage it.

Once you've sorted out the resolution you need to set the dimensions for your mat. The standard official playmat is 24 inches wide, and 14 inches high so your design must be at least this large. However, you have to consider the 'run-off area' and the tendency for the printer to not print your design completely straight. To make up for this, you should add a quarter of an inch to the overall size of the design.

Here are the dimensions your Photoshop document should be set to (in pixels):
150dpi: 3638x2138
200dpi: 4850x2850
300dpi: 7275x4275

Working with large images:
Since you're working at a higher resolution than usual, you will be working with larger stock images. Most images you find online were designed for computer output, meaning that they are set to 72dpi. Upscaling these to 300dpi is possible, but causes a large amount of pixellation and a lower quality print as a result. There are a few things you can do to rectify the problem. The first is to find larger images, but given the scale that you are working on, you might be out of luck. The second is to 'blow up' your stock images. How you do this is up to you, there are plenty of tutorials online about it if you look hard enough. Finally, you can vectorise your stock images. When an image is converted to a vector, it is simplified in such a way that it won't lose quality, even if you upscale it by 1,000%. You can either do it manually (again, search for tutorials) or use http://vectormagic.com which does the work for you. Please note that when vectorising an image, it becomes extremely simplified, so it may not be the best way to go about enlarging very complicated images.

Have fun and enjoy!

I'm looking to get a lion heat themed playmat going, but I haven't got the tools to be able to pull the vanguard circle design off a mat to toy around with. Any of the designers want to take a stab at putting the king of beasts on a mat, or can toss me an image file of the basic circles?

Shadow88
03-23-2012, 08:19 PM
I could give it a try over the weekend. This (http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20111211154416/cardfight/images/6/6f/Unit_ng14.jpg) is the only decent img I could find. Will that be ok or can you supply one?

FlareStarfire
03-23-2012, 08:49 PM
That, and the stock photo of the card itself have been the only things I've been able to find short of still images taken from the Anime episode 19 where Lion Heat makes its only appearance that I'm aware of. Been pestering a couple artists friends to see if they could come up with extra material to make a mat with but as I'd mentioned I've had no luck finding a source for the rest of the mat zones.

Shadow88
03-23-2012, 08:55 PM
I'm at ep 41 and I'm sure I've seen Lion Heat make a few appearances. After all Nova Grappler is one of the big 4 and has atleast 2 characters playing it on a regular basis (Kamui and Nagisa).
Shame the wiki doesn't have an anime appearance count like the YGO wiki does... (If there is a count out there idk about it.)

Additional Comment:

Anyway I'll give it a shot. Could you specify dimensions?
Any other Nova Grapplers/beasts you like?

FlareStarfire
03-23-2012, 09:05 PM
Standard mat printing size, whatever that equates to. I know that's wider than CFV's standard mats but it does give more to show off the art. Lion Heat's my main man (lion?) so I haven't really got anything else to throw on there for material. Colorwise I've found he looks most striking against black, greys / silvers and the like. There's barely enough unique material (not considering anime stills) to make a montage-like mat, but simple is best I find anyways.

alfred in the middle with soul saver and majesty lord blaster on either side of him. Sky blue background. Dimensions are whatever you think is best i guess as long as it looks clear. Take your time and let me know if you need any help. Ill do whatever i can. I wish vanguard released card images, its so hard to find good pictures.

For mats, card images aren't that great since the artwork is often cut off/underneath something. I found a nice card img of Alfred but his feet was covered by the text boxes. Sadly the only thing that would work is the concept art Bushiroad has (what else would it be called?) and screenshots of the anime unless there's a really good artist out there who can reproduce the artwork...

Thanks Chaz.

Actually that first one doesn't look bad if you could cut Alfred and the horse from the rest of it.

Shadow88

Luckily I've got a decent Soul Saver Dragon concept piece from looking for Lion Heat. Managed to get a decent set of images together. I'll try to make a Photobucket album of Vanguard images and link it in the OP. I just dk how to link albums or make sure it's open for the public. I'll see about Majesty Lord Blaster soon. I'll work on Lion Heat this weekend and start on Alfred after that unless Chaz or Eien jump on it.

Additional Comment:

Yea that'd be possible.

ThunderGod92
03-23-2012, 10:29 PM
I was looking around for majesty blaster and couldn't find anything. The only thing i could think off is getting a hi res image of the sleeves and seeing if you guys can cut his image from that. If you guys don't have any better ideas, Ill see what i can do when my sleeves come in. Thanks again for doing this.

Shadow88
03-23-2012, 10:33 PM
I was actually considering the sleeves but I found a poor quality img. I would've left the logo in since it's a lil less work and looks decent. Lmk when you've got the img and I'll be happy to mess with it.

FlareStarfire
03-23-2012, 10:37 PM

Well, I have arrived here out of an idea that I would love to have printed on a mat. It involves the Japanese promo [as of right now, of course.] No Life King, Death Anchor. Could I get the card art as a design or on a mat with some text in a sort of red/black style at the bottom of the mat, preferably atop the art which state NO LIFE KING? I plan on collecting the card, so.

Shadow88
03-23-2012, 10:56 PM
Do you want a mat complete with circles or just the artwork? I wouldn't have a problem as long as there's a decent img out there of the artwork and not the text boxes on the card.

ThunderGod92

Yea i know. The images on google are too small so i know they would end up blurry and pixelated. Ill post an image when the sleeves come in. Maybe we can do the same with soul savior depending on the picture you already have.

Axel2275
03-23-2012, 11:06 PM
I would personally want just the artwork. So far though all I've seen are just the card with text and "SAMPLE" on it, unfortunately.

ThunderGod92
03-23-2012, 11:12 PM
that looks fine. Just to keep all the them in theme ill just opt for a picture of blaster blade instead of majesty. Think you could put the unit and guard circles on the playmat and then put the creature images on top of them?

Thanks for the Blaster Blade. The background looks nice but it'd be better if it wasn't diagonal. Unless you like that.

Additional Comment:

Good luck with that img Chaz.

By blank I mean a template Vanguard mat. I was gonna create my own but wasn't sure if what I have will work. I enlarged the images and they didn't pixelize notably so they might work but as this is my first time really attempting a mat I'm not sure what it should look like at different zoom percentages.

Take a look at Chaz's mat shop, last page, one of Eien's latest posts that has an img of a mat. I'm talking like that minus the extra artwork he added. All the symbols ready to be overlayed on artwork and opacity altered to any liking.

I'm used to making avatars and banners. My current avi I made over 6 years ago (I know. That's old.) and my banner is also made by me about a year ago.

Lol not sure what happened. As for the playmat just the circles will do, with the vanguard circle being blue. I don't need the damage or deck zones or anything like that.

Shadow88
03-23-2012, 11:44 PM
Well cutting the deck, damage and trigger zones out is insanely easy. It's just I'd like to get the template out of the way so I'll have a jumpstart for all the future mats.
And that img didn't come through.

Ain't that the truth. >< Episode 19 is the Nagisa / Kamui episode where I know he shows up towards the end. I'm not sure he shows up in other episodes, although Shadow seems to remember something. I'll see if google can help on this one.

Additional Comment:

No results other than Episode 19, Minutes 19-22 have several shots of multiple Lion Heats battling each other. Might be able to get some usable shots from here (the Lion Heat throwing the punch might be more usable than the one taking the punch, although there's a decent solo shot of a standing Lion Heat before Kirara bonks it for Nagisa's win.)

Oh wow what a perfect timing for this thread, a local shop here is going to start offering printing servbices so most of my friends and I have started to design our own mats.

As for a default playmat template, I do have one ready to go which I can upload and share with you guys here. I got it through my friend so I'm not sure where he got it from credit-wise but I'll try to ask him. I'm currently on my phone so I'll upload it here later while sharing my current design idea.

Also for more images, fanart is a great source to get awesome hi res images of cards. Pixiv.net and zerochan.net are good sites to get fanart. Pixiv is a japanese site though, so you would have to google the japanese name of the card art you want, and copy and paste the name into the search box. You also need to make an account to download hi res images.

Have fun guys!

I'll work on rendering the images I have tonight and tomorrow.

Thunder, the size is nice and the pose would be great if Soul Savior was the centerpiece but it'll be flanking Alfred plus the grade and power info detracts from the img. And yea, it could be much sharper.

Does the shop have a website? Or will it stick to local jobs?

I'm also not sure, but I know they don't have a website so I would venture to assume local jobs only? However since they're not doing the actual printing themselves and are charging really cheap, they're probably using a local printing shop and printing through them. My friends and I tried to google for it but could not find anything in the area :/

Well as it is that isn't quite possible. The screenshot isn't sharp enough and, while I can work it where the grade and power wouldn't be visible, I'd have trouble with the tail. I've only got the concept art to work with and that would leave Soul Savior and Blaster flanking Alfred...

Oh no, the mat he printed for me was designed by yet another Pojo user from the YuGiOh forums. His username I believe was Hyoma, from the YuGiOh forums. I'm not sure if he still prints mats, but you could throw a PM his way. It was a little pricey for me cas stupid shipping to Canada apparently costs an arm and a leg. :|

Oh no, the mat he printed for me was designed by yet another Pojo user from the YuGiOh forums. His username I believe was Hyoma, from the YuGiOh forums. I'm not sure if he still prints mats, but you could throw a PM his way. It was a little pricey for me cas stupid shipping to Canada apparently costs an arm and a leg. :|

Oh I see lol. Well, I might as well go lurk over there and see if I can find anyone. I'll post in the Playmat thread they have.

ALSO, here's a 300dpi version of the template and the size that Inked Playmats suggests it should be. I think using this one would be better than the one I uploaded before. It can be found HERE! (http://www.mediafire.com/?tzzcxl28z3tbg5c)

I think I'm one of the few people who play both games. Its very different than magic but i enjoy it a lot. Its very balanced so you can just pick out your favorite clan and you'll do well once you get used to it. Its a really cool game.

I did a stint in MtG and Naruto. YGO is the only game I've stayed in but largely casual the whole time cept for the first ban list taking out Chaos Emperor and Yata. I ruled locals then.

Vanguard has a lot of elements from successful games.
MtG: cards tap to atk/activate effects.
YGO: both players start with 5 cards and draw a 6th. First player can't atk.
Naruto: same scoring mechanic. In Naruto when a team loses you lose the top card of your deck. It goes to the battle reward section facedown. Lose 10 rewards and you've lost. Vanguard is similar only it's 4 less.

Watching the anime also helps learn the basics.

That Cray img is pretty good. Now we just need some landscapes of the Paladin plain, the Nova Grappler arena and maybe the Pale Moon ring. Kagero? The ninja clan?

Last night I used the original background img and dragged the Paladins onto it. Today I realized I hadn't used the right resolution since the background is 72. On 300 the Paladins look ok when the whole img is visible but when it's zoomed in there's some quality loss. Sadly idk how to fix that or even if it can be fixed.

Flare here's (http://i255.photobucket.com/albums/hh123/razgrizace/IMG-20120325-00086.jpg) your preliminary. I'll dig up a better background and work on it some more later. Anything you'd like in the middle? Move em closer together?

03-25-2012, 03:30 PM
Hmm, I think adding the words "Lion Heat" on in a cool looking font will help, and it might look better with just one of them, perhaps the right hand one since the damage zone will be on the left. The mirror look seems to detract from it, so lets try to make one Lion Heat stand out more, if that makes sense- kind of like that Akane mat, for example.

Shadow88
03-25-2012, 03:33 PM

Chaz03
03-25-2012, 04:07 PM
The circles would need to be separate images in order to change their attributes. To do that, they need to be cut out of the entire image and placed into their own individual layer.

Shadow88
03-25-2012, 05:44 PM
Yea I know but I'm having trouble trying to do that. There's too many small areas that'd cause trouble. I suppose higher res would help but where would we get that?

Additional Comment:

For the mats that have been done already is it just erasing most of the black area from a scanned official mat and altering the opacity?
I'd like to be able to separate each section as a separate file to manipulate as I'd like.

So, basically this guy "Doki' took a worse looking version of the design posted here and claimed it as his own on inkedplaymats. In case anyone didn't know, these designs were printed exclusively in Australia by a couple of Vanguard people a couple months back and it's a shame this guys is basically taking it for his own... The reason I say that is because when you order from there, they asked if you'd like your design featured on the site and you can get payed for it. So by adding his little logo thingy it's now his? Hmm. Messed up. It's one thing to just print the design like we are, but to agree to get payed for it is a little messed up considering he didn't make it. One thing I did notice were the smaller Vanguard circles and the lack of text. Still, not his design.

Not true at all. I made all of the parts myself in Illustrator after doing a good bit of research and dealing with awful images. I layed it out from scratch in PS. I searched around and saw that there wasn't much out there for this game and the only mats provided were outlandishly priced ones on ebay, and pretty badly put together custom ones if they weren't the official thing. If you wanna gripe at someone literally lifting that design you made, go talk to some ebay dealers, because they're the real bad guys.

PS, before you start going off on people, maybe you guys should do more than just copy/paste the original Custom Playmat thread word for word changing Yugi mention to Vangard.

They're work is exceptional. I've been working with custom mats for years now and the owner of Inked is really doing it right. He can offer prices like that because he's got the right game plan behind it. More over the business isn't one of these unreputable types that mass produces anything (talking bad quality and stolen images here) they get their hands on.

But then again, don't take my word for it since I'm just some guy that plasters his logo on things he doesn't make himself... >.>

I searched around and saw that there wasn't much out there for this game and the only mats provided were outlandishly priced ones on ebay, and pretty badly put together custom ones if they weren't the official thing. If you wanna gripe at someone literally lifting that design you made, go talk to some ebay dealers, because they're the real bad guys.

PS, before you start going off on people, maybe you guys should do more than just copy/paste the original Custom Playmat thread word for word changing Yugi mention to Vangard.

1) I NEVER said it was my design... I said it was people from Australia..
2) I didn't make this thread, so I'm not sure what you're referring to with "copy and paste"

Trust me dude, it's not that big of a deal, it just gets me a little upset because I feel people should get the credit they deserve. Sorry for taking it out of hand and not realizing you created everything from scratch. The reason I actually though it wasn't yours because it looked really good compared to those designs on EBay you mentioned. Again, I apologize for the misunderstanding.

I have mentioned I stole most of the info from the other thread. I just didn't know that that thread was for all games and not just YGO. Maybe I should update the OP with credit...

The mat looks ok. I don't care for the art much but if you do that's good.

I should have the 3 images vectored soon so I should finish your mat tonight and have it ready for you tomorrow Thunder. Mind giving me an email address to send it attached?

MM very nice work guys/gals:D

Have a quick question.
I have been having some trouble getting the vanguard circles deck/drop zones ETC on my mat! have my image "witch turned out better then I thought she would" however ever time I tried adding the circles/zones I would end up messing things up:confused: as I was also attempting to alter the color of the circles to blend in better with the rest of the mat. Am thinking I will just make a mat with out any of the vanguard stuff on it"not really what I wanted but ohh well"

can any of you gift me with any insight??

please and thanks

03-27-2012, 05:42 PM
That's something I'd like help on too. I used magic wand on the vanguard and one rear guard circle and the inverse selection to delete the extra stuff. It came out ok but lost some thickness I think from looking at the Misaki mat.

Fatal mind rendering the circles for us?

3D art? Yea, I managed to select a different horn, copy and drag it over the missing section. It looks good if you don't pay really close attention.

The original template actually has glow around the circles already, but when you duplicate layers as I did, it makes them more prominent.

Shadow88
03-28-2012, 10:42 PM
Yes it has a glow on it but the way I separated the circles and made them their own layer took out the glow. There was no way I was gonna hand erase around the glow. My hand on the mouse cannot keep the curve circular enough. Magic wand doesn't help at all since it gets all the regular black and when you try to get some more black the glow is caught in the selection. Leaves magic wanding the actual circle the only option I could successfully do. It worked but cut out the glow. I spose multiple duplicates would make the circles stand out more but that'd suck up more memory and sadly I don't have a lot since I'm using a 10+ year old comp and these images are large for it.

The comp can do it, it just takes a long time to load/save an entire img and then it won't let me open multiple images at the same time unless they're both straight from the disc/flash. It's mildly irritating. I can't wait til I get a newer comp but idk when that'll be or what program I'll be using then.

Except this is for a full size mat. Inked Playmats wants a psd. If they take any other form idk. I don't have, won't use and don't plan to use paypal for some time. So I can't have Thunder or Valhalla send me their money and I send it to Inked when I upload the design.

I was going to make a order with Inked and they don't require a PSD. In the cart just upload a PNG file.

Since for some reason my PS won't open a PNG img I don't think it'll save one.

Yea. It's pushing it as is. If it wasn't just her face as the background it'd probably look better but we have to wait for any better images.

Here's (http://s255.photobucket.com/albums/hh123/razgrizace/Vanguard%20mats/) my mats so far. I'm hoping to get more done in the future but for now I'm lacking good images to work with. There's something I'd like to do with Blaster Blade and Dark but the images I have won't work for it. Is there any img that exists of the two of them facing forward instead of angled off?

Anyone mind sharing the circles, deck zone, damage zone, and dropzone templates? So I can use them on photoshop o_o

The template in the OP is a single img, jpeg I believe. He's asking for each zone on a different layer as a psd.

oh. how do the rest of u go about cutting images?? magic selection, sitting with eraser for a while, lasso tool??

Shadow88
03-31-2012, 01:09 PM
Depends on the img. I generally use eraser to do a 3-5pixel erase at 150%+ zoom and then zoom out and erase in larger pixels. For the mat, with the curvature I couldn't do an erase and went with magical wand. I don't much care for lasso.

You got it from the card? Since when have the card images been usable for mats?

Speaking of which, anyone mind getting a good, full body shot of Majestic Blaster Lord for me from ep65? Preferably full frontal and not at some angle.

Yea YGO has lots of suitable art.

Around 13:25. There's another place but it's mostly upperbody rather than full body.

The Misaki mat looks really nice. I would be interested in it but that's a whole lot of pink.

Provide a background (color) and I could fix it for you.

Damn, you awesome guy. You made the Doushio face for Skull Witch as a mat, props to you.

Additional Comment:

Can anyone provide me with vanguard circle vectors and guardian circle vector? Or is it somewhere in this thread.

Not intending to be the bearer of bad news:eek: However I do wish to say that while Shadow did a splended job at adding the vanguard circles to the mat" as I was unable to do so":D
The mat art of Skull Witch, Nemain yours truly is responsible for.

Ps shadow if you would please PM me again as to what you were looking for that would be great XD "as I seem to have misplaced your list some were??"
