Many people ask me how do I shade my skins. Answering everyone personally can be very annoying. That's why I've decided to make a tutorial about the way I shade my skins. I'm not a master at skinning yet but sharing the knowledge which I've gained by this moment can help some people improve.
I've harnessed all my Photoshop knowledge into this blog. It's my first one so I don't expect to be perfect!

Hey dude, what about skin? Because I CANNOT shade skin arms unless there in armor.

Thank you, even though this isn't helping me, it will help some people in the community, I'm looking for an easy way to shade skins where it will still look professional

If you want your skins looking professional you have to make it the hard way... ;)

Well not exactly professional just like good enough where when I need to use it my friends won't think I'm a newb. and the hard way isn't going to happen, because I'm only 10 years old and my mom would be scared if I spent too long on a skin

Tell her that it doesn't exist a game which is more creative than Minecraft yet, show her some projects around PMC and tell me if she is still worried about you when you draw skins, when you CREATE them... ;)

My mom also won't let me download skinning software even if I say I need it because she said it might not be safe, we have virus protection so wtf?

anyways don't bother because I'm gonna start posting on PMC so like yeah you'll see how quick I make skins.

www.planetminecraft.com/mod/dimension-glacia-beta-testing-145/

I'm asking you if you'd like to make me an armor texture, that will look like a mammooth skin dress.
(editing minecraft.jar/armor/ONEOFTHEARMORS.png)

I'll give you credit if you can make this for my dimension
