This is a tutorial on how to shade just like me! Over time, this will become obsolete, but that doesn't mean you can't use it! Anyways, this will be a tutorial on how to get your shading techniques better! First, I'll teach you about the body, then the arms and legs, and finally, the head.

Step One          Step Two          Step Three

Step Ten         Step Eleven       Step Twelve

The darker lines indicate the shadows of the chest and stomach while the lighter spots show where the angle of the light is. Realistically in the darkest spots, there should only be one big dark color, but because this is Minecraft where anyone could do anything, I decided on giving a little bit of detail.

The dark line in the middle of the arm is the crease where the elbow is supposed to be. When shading any of these body parts, make sure that you copy and paste the front and top of the sides to the back and bottom part.

For the head, this is the bald design that I use. But you could use it with a full set of hair. If you want to design hair on it, do it! It's your skin and you can choose whether or not you want hair!

This is all very nice, but... who is this ZappyGru guy, and give me a reason why I shouldn't subscribe to them right now for making such a cool tutorial?

Aha! I knew it! I've been searching for the ebic uploader for 12 years,
and I've finally found out his name after all this time.
Good friend, might I inquire as to how I might contact
this Zappy of the Gru? You seem to be his most knowledgeable
contact.

Let's see, maybe you could diamond and heart every submission he made. Then he could appreciate your love for his content.

Darn, it seems as if a dark spirit is blocking my contact. A few hearts and diamonds were exchanged, bot then my actions were blocked by Spamificus Filterus, the ancient shape-shifting warlord from the fallen Kingdom of Jardonius. I will have to think on this occurence for quite some time...

When I started shading, it took me months to prefect it. I don't that to happen to newer skinners, so I wanted to create a tutorial for the new ones!
