Hey everyone and welcome to Taco's Tuts! A new ''series'' where I explain how I shade my skins, and show you some different techniques aswell :D

Anyway, this is the first ''chapter'' where I show you how to shade hair :D
So let's start ;D

Step 1:

Here we have the head, the hair is not shaded yet but as you can see the skin is already done.

Step 2:

Here you need to make a palette, each colour has the same contrast so it looks better.

Step 3:

Here you make the lower line of the hair darker, sorry for the bit of hair on the eye, didn't notice it :/

Step 4:
opoqhjpg
Here you add a vertical line ever 2 blocks, one high, one low, etc.

Step 5:
jtihjpg
Here you make the bigger dark spots, even darker :O
It already looks much better huh?


Step 6:

Here you need to add a lighter area, don't make it too precise because it'll look... precise :/
I'm sorry about the grey thingy on the right, I suck miserably at editing pics, still looking for someone who could edit them for me.

Step 7:
ohiqjpg
Here you do the same as you did with the dark, you make the light.. Even lighter :D
Never thought shading could be that easy huh?

Here are two different shading styles, no tutorial though :3

Dotted shading:

Layered shading:

I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial, if you did of course leave a diamond, it makes my butt cheeks clap :D
Suggestions on the next shading tut are welcome too!

Well, I still have to read what to do and everything, we will ask anyone that we think deserves to be elite or anything else, don't ask for it, you'll have to earn it :D

Do you utilize hue shifting when coloring your skins?

I change the colour by 3 and darken/lighten it by 4/5, might not understand that :/

I get it completely. I do the same thing...sometimes. As you have seen with my skins, I'm head over heels for the high contrast approach. xD

Nice tutorial by the way. Very descriptive and easy to follow.

Well, I actually come quite close to white, but not completely. I use a really desaturated color. Usually, the highest I'll go on the saturation slide is 3 O_o
I try not to use pure white though.

Haha yeah I know, pure white sucks, but a little less contrast wouldn't matter, not saying it looks bad man!! do NOT feel offended your skins are boss.
