eh... this is a really bland and outdated shading style. Good tutorial, though.

Welp, I would've liked shading turtorials on the super shaded skins that i get. It's hard to explain but it's sort of a common trend around here but I can't figure out a certain method to make one quite like the shading I'm commenting about. But thanks for the help xp

For better results, try making the colors really bright, the template will then darken the colors to your liking.

All the skins i have made are REALLY bad because they are unshaded. This helped me a LOT! It is amazing how easy it was and it took LESS than 2 MINUTES! Thank you very much for helping!

It is against the rules to post skins on PMC using any shading template that you did not create yourself.

Yes... unless you want to go to a virus filled website and download a cracked version.

Use Paint.net. Completely free, and perfect for this sort of thing.

Actually no. I need help. I found a problem:
I downloaded gimp (following the tutorial above) and I did everything the thing asked me to. I made the skin with the template and such. Then I saved it, and I went to PMC to upload it and it doesnt appear as a skin but as the template. HELP!
