Hi guys! I will show you how to shade a skin using paint.NET.

You will need:
A unshaded skin
A shading template
paint.NET

I will use my bugs bunny dj skin.

4. click 'New Layer'
5. click the clipboard on the options menu
6. go to 'Layer Properties'

8. Adjust the bar to the amount of shading wanted
9. Click 'Save As'
10. Change the .pnd to a .png

well i suggest getting MCskin3D and using that, because that is what I use. I might make a tutorial for making a skin, but i dunno.
