Hello all!
Today when I was making my custom skin, I had an idea, that migh help other "skinners" with shading their skins. I have the first shader, that is available to EVERYONE! All you have to do, is to download my shader, and apply it to your prepared skin, and woalla! Your skin is now shaded! I've included a short video on how it works, I'm using photoshop but it is compatible with any other program, that has layer options.
So please tell me what you think /subscribe/diamond/favorite/comment!
NEW LINK FOR SHADING TUTORIAL

!!BEWARE IT IS AGAINST THE RULES TO USE THIS ON ANY EXISTING SKINS!!


Here are links for download:
1 CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE SHADER!


Keep in mind that this is my first version of shader, I will be improving it through time and updating it!


Here is the video, so you know how it works! :)

All you have to do is use gimp, but use the shader skin as a layer.
Does this work for MCSkin3D?
So it's like a template which you should have been written in the info to make it easier to understand.
Im sorry for the misunderstanding. I apologize if I hurt your feelings.
Well not really a template, I'd say it's more like a ... umm.. overlay if u know what I mean ;) No probs, why would u hurt my feelings? I just wanted to explain what it is. Btw it's easy to talk but I haven't seen you do anything, yet, your profile is empty.
And  I didn't get that. Lets just travel back in time.. 'It's the first free shader'. Photoshop demo is free and has way better quality picture effects.
Yes I can see that you clearly don't understand what this is. It is a premade layer, with shading, that beginners can simply place on top of their finished skin, without having to shade it. Just watch the video and you will understand.
I don't get your point, is this your own shader? Cuz I prefer using photoshop instead, it is legal and most peepz prefer it.

You sure it's not allowed to put this on existing skins? I asked permission and was allowed to use your shader on a skin...

WOW. Thank you so much :3
I've been developing an automatic MC skin shader and I've been working on creating a skin shader layer like yours and it would save me alot of time & effort if you were to let me use this skin shader (layer). You will also be receiving full credit for what you have done & more.

Temporarily disabled the submission. Changes are required.
Please add a disclaimer stating that it is against our rules to upload skins made using this shader. We see a huge number of skins uploaded that have been shaded using this, and they all must be removed. Most people are unaware that it is against our rules to upload these skins. Thanks. Once you have added this, request re-enabling of this submission.

Because skins should be original, and made completely by one person and all that crap. Why can't people just make skins to let others use them?

am i allowed to post my skins using this?
If you try to copy the head format to the hat format AFTER you shadded, and delete the skin to make it look like a hat, you get a shaded hat!!!

The reason he didnt put a hat format slot is, it may interfere with non-hat figures or skins.
This is pretty good although it looks rather strange, I'd recommend it for shading newbies but I still prefer the hard-labour pixel by pixel technique.
Seems Kinda weird with female Skins
Is it work with Paint.net

When I try to download this skin shader, It's just adverts that try to make me download something else!
just use the first link, it works. but type exactly what you see it is lower-case sensitive.

Can you add the two different shades of shaders that are seen in the video?

It would be useful to be able to adjust for different skin types.

P.S check out the skins I made with this.

Could you maybe put a download link to photoshop or another skinner that works with this.
Photoshop is a paid software, you can't get that for free, unless you want a cracked (illegal) version. Some people said that gimp works with it, try getting that one ;)

You don't need Photoshop.
You could use Nova Skin.
You could make your skin there then add the shader as a layer.

You can also use Pixlr:

I shade mine by hand but they usually turn out like this, this is a link to my page:
