Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!


A while ago I posted a forum thread offering to make free heads like the ones here:http://imgur.com/a/pBtyf

With over 7 pages of requests,nall completed within 24 hours ;-), I feel it's time for me to make a tutorial.


I have created aYouTubevideo which you can watch, and learn from.


I have made this blog so people can comment, as I have disabled YouTube comments, and encourage anybody who has any questions.


Have a wonderful day!

Since I didn't know how to do it I just made a HD profile picture,and added realistic hair and eyes.
Edit:As real as Minecraft gets actually.

The way you did it was *kinda* inefficient, but still a really nice tutorial.

Ye, I'm no expert at this, I just saw a really cool avatar one day, decided to try and make it myself. Any improvements you could suggest?

Thanks for the comment! :)

Well, instead of using a seperate image for some of the copying and pasting, you could use multiple layers. Also, I'd recommend turning the resolution up, and the blur slightly down.

I understand what you are saying about the res and the blur, but surely with multiple layers it would get too hectic? You would have to move stuff off screen whilst creating the shadow :/

You can hide the layers :P

Amazing, so much easier than I had thought. I was expecting some 3-4 hour photoshop action.
Really nice tutorial and thanks for making one unlike the 100 other people that keep it a "secret".
Diamond and Sub to you my friend.

Check the video description, it clearly states the name of the song, and if you look closely you can see it says "remix".

Can I open my own area on my server's forums to make these as a free head shop? I'll credit you.
