Hello, and thank you for visiting this skin/tutorial, here I will go through some very simple steps on how to shade your character, since I've seen WAY TOO MANY skins that totally lacks shading (and that triggers my shading OCD!). So yeah, please read and enjoy this little tutorial I made, and I really hope that you can learn a thing or two from it. :)

Please give a diamond/favorite (or both) if you found this useful. I'd be very glad too if you posted a comment with your thoughts on this, and as always, subscribe for more. :)

Again, PLEASE give this a diamond/favorite (or both) if you feel that this was useful, and that other people should be aware of this knowledge. I don't do this for my own profit (I'm high enough level really), I do it to help people. :)
If you have any further questions, ask here in the comments or PM me.

A hermaphrodite is neither a guy or a girl, you gotta think of everything!

You should use any Photo Editing program that you might have lying around besides MS Paint. (I'd say the minimum is Paint.NET. [Which is a program, NOT a site.]) Other editors make it too complicated to simply draw and shade compared to Photo Editors.

I know, it used to look correct like that, but then they updated the previewer so that it would look just like in game, where they had flipped all the bottom parts vertically.

I tend to upload them at
http://imgur.com/, then I copy the image (not the URL) and paste it in the description. Make sure the image is the right size though, it wont resize automatically as far as I know.
