Hi everyone,

I want to start writing some skin making tutorials soon, and I'm wondering what you want to learn about! :D
So if there's anything you're wondering about in relation to skin making, please let me know in the comments below.

Can be anything; general techniques or specific parts, making color palettes or definitions of terms used in skin making.

I won't be answering your questions on this thread, unless it's something I'm not planning to cover in any tutorial. The questions and topics mentioned, will be covered in my tutorial(s).

Thanks \o/

How about how to put alts for skins under one submission or a tutorial that's updated because planet minecraft has had been updated all in 2018 and I think you should if your new, how make alts in minecraft so you don't do is post the same skin with different outfits or the same outfit but slightly different.

I like, can not for the life of me, shade the torso of a skin. It never looks right. Legs, arms, head, is fine. But I just don't know how to do the torso.

Here I go:
How do you capture details from reference and put them in very limited space on skin?
(I hope you like it! ^_^ )

Maybe light sources. I struggle a lot with that and end up not even putting one!

How about shading? I wanna know how to shade correctly with my skins and not resort to using random color or other bases. Otherwise, pretty neat idea.

I’d love to see how you’d approach shading different materials, whether it be metals, coarse furs, cloth, even liquids etc.

good luck on your writing :D

How to Not suck at everything skin related!

Okay that's a joke ;p A neat tutorial to see would be a "How to find inspiration for skins" tutorial, mainly because I do want to make skins, but I never know what to make.

(advanced) shading is probably the thing I struggle with most, so learning that would be appreciated.

Could you explain hue shifting and how to determine how much shift and how much shade to use in successive layers of shadow?
