What the heck are you talking about?
I did this by hand, you can even see so in the video.
Plus, I really don't care what someone who is too lazy to make their own avatar steals mine has to say

shut up and go get a life you prick
What you are saying isn't making any sense what so ever. You are still replying also so therefor you are implying you also have no life and you are a prick. I do have free time in the day to come onto PMC and reply to comments like most people do.

How do you choose your colors?
I have been meaning to do a tutorial on that for a while.
I think I will do it for my 700 sub special or something (Since I am not too far off)

i use Kongregate to make my skins

to use Kongregate go to www.kongregate.com and type in the search Skincraft

and you should be able to make a nice skin upload it to PMC

I'm not sure how you did that so fast and so well 0.0 I don't know how you chose where to put the lightest highlights on the face, but I never would have come up with that :P The biggest thing I want to know is how you chose the colors, specifically for skin tone (although the others matter too). Anyways, great tutorial :)

I think it is just broken for you.
Okay, but how do you shade if you've actually made things on your skin like eyes, and a mouth, or a design on your shirt?
  • peytonisgreat
  • Level 64
  • High Grandmaster Meme
  • March 9, 2013, 6:19 am
It is the same basic idea, just tweaking it to match the contours.
Meh, sounds good to me! *Diamond*
