Hi. This is a tutorial on how I shade my skins. I am not posting this so people could copy this shading style as their own, but instead so beginning skinners will have an idea on some of the basic things of shading, and so people can see how I make my skins :3


Okay, so the tools I use are Paint.NET and Minecraft Skin Viewer, but I've heard good things about MCSkin3D by Paril. See KnobleKnives' color tutorial if you want to improve colors by, like, a lot.


When you're reading this, keep in mind I'm not a master at this c;


Yet.


Spoiler
Finished product! Isn't that nice? That would have taken me about an hour to make if I hadn't been taking screenshots every few seconds. Well, I guess you're done, thanks for taking the time to read all this! Now, back to that Escape from Aperture 3 map.
CreditEvery single skinner out there, thank you for inspiring me to improve my skinning and stuff.

This shading is incredibly cute. It's like something in the middle of blocky simple and "HD" shading.

Generally, my base color is the second lightest shade, just to plan out the skin, or if I'm using a reference photo, whatever colors I pick from the photo.
