My decal design tutorial using Adobe Illustrator is finished and waiting for you in the Tutorials section in the top menu. There is a free 30-day trial of this software available at Adobe.com.

If you follow the steps and create this decal you should be able to create almost anyone. I hope this tutorial is helpful for you!
