    Maybe a case of an improperly configured palette?

    all i did was open up that 256 color bmp on the left in halflife logo creator, resized it, then made it into a wad with that.

    I don't get what you mean, do you want it to have transparency or something? If you want it to have transparency the black would have to be true blue (i.e 0, 0, 255), if you mean the colors aren't right that's just the gamma at work.

    With or without transparency, the last color in the palette has to be pure blue.

    Ok, if you really want to make a awsome custom spray, do not use the wizard. It seriously messes things up.

    First make sure it is divisible by 16. (the bmp file)
    Then make a new .wad file.
    Insert it in there.

    It will have higher quality

    1. Download Wally and install
    2. Custom spray checklist:
      • 256-color palette
      • Both dimensions are multiples of 16 (optional: multiples of 64 seem to work best; no distortion in-game)
      • Total image area (width x height) does not exceed 10,752 pixels
      • Make sure the last color of the palette is 0,0,255 (pure blue), regardless of whether you use the color in the image or not, but any areas with such color will become transparent
    3. Create a tempdecal.wad file in your \ns directory if it doesn't already exist
    4. Open tempdecal.wad with Wally
    5. Delete any existing images
    6. Drag-and-drop your image into the newly opened window
    7. Rename your image to {logo
    8. Save, close, and ensure that tempdecal.wad is not larger than 15kb
    9. Make tempdecal.wad read-only to prevent accidental overwriting
    10. Join server of choice, allow 30 seconds for upload, and spray to your heart's content

    Try this one. It looks quite like the source color-wise, but of course, the size couldn't be retained, so it might be a little blurry.
