I am certain that most of you are looking forward to a skinning tutorial.

Nice try, busters. This is probably the closest you'll ever get.

For now.

Soooo why am I making this?

This happens all the time. I'm simply browsing through the skins on PMC and I see them.

The mistakes.

The goofs.

The big no-nos.

I'm here to fix that.

This is mostly a tutorial for all you newbies out there that have just joined, but I know it'll be helpful for some of you more experienced people too.

Rule #1
Rule #2
Rule #3
Rule #4
Rule #5
Rule #6
Rule #7

So, I hoped you all found this article helpful and will use it to improve your skinning techniques. If you have any suggestions to add to this tutorial, please feel free to! I'd love to hear from you.

This was not meant to offend anyone.

I actually do Rule #5 in most of my skins (there's 1 skin that I added noise).

Rule #1: I concur, this is the most important rule in this Blog
Rule #2: This is a good rule of thumb, but never say never. I used some solid white pixels on a skin that got second in an offical PMC skin Contest.
Rule #3: I agree, this allows a skinner to create multiple skins with little effort
Rule #4: Noise = Evil
Rule #5: Shading is not always needed, cartoon and sprite skins for example
Rule #6: Yes
Rule #7: See Rule #5

What a day!




1: Why do people actually think they can get away with it? And how can they bear to do that to the original creator anyway?
2: You did? Ooh. I should try participating in one some time, thanks for that bit of info. :)
3. EXACTLY.
4. It must be abolished, it's so bad. XD
5. Perhaps you have a point. Hmm...
6: Correct. Yes. You always see the occasional skin that has that. :P
7. Point taken.

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment. :O :D

*Rubs eyes to make sure this is real*

LOL, you don't know how many skins I find per day of reuploads of your FNAF skins. It's so annoying and mean. They should have more respect for you and other creators. I just had to use one of them as an example. XD

The chica one is so accurate. :O

Thank you so much for the praise, diamonds, and subscription. That is truly amazing and gives me a lot of confidence from people like you. Not just because you're popular, but people like you gave me the inspiration to start skinning. I really wanted to be a part of that. So thank you, aeropulse. You're awesome! <3 :D

IMO, it would be annoying to keep changing your shading style all the time for rule #3

Not necessarily the shading style. But you know Jordanw5432 and his technique of making the characters have a smile? I was especially referring to stuff like that there.

I sometimes use pure black or white, I sometimes use noise (very apparant in my older skins), I sometimes not shade, I forget to finish certain areas because idk, and I sometimes don't put too much detail. Sowwy.




And no I'm not offended
