What tutorial is it and what parts don't you understand? It helps to have questions that are a bit more specific :)

What program did you download to make the skins?

or are you just trying to look at skins on a model?

I wrote a comprehensive beginners tutorial. It was at the force.net, but since the site owner did a dirty on me and a bunch of fellow mods, I removed it. I plan to reformat it in the near future and submit it to various sites such as this one as a pdf.

In the meantime, it's still viewable at the internet archives;

jp-30, your tutorial is geat! It taught me everything I needed to know before I did my two skins (I even gave you a credit on my latest one http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=127411).

I was disappointed when it disappeared off of that other site. I even grabbed files out of my browser's cache to try and piece it together. Fortunately, I discovered I had saved all of the web pages some time back and had forgotten that I did. And I'm glad that it is still online.

All beginning skinners should read jp-30's tutorial!

Nice to read you found it useful. As well as being in the web archives, it's still available in its original form in this thread;


Though some of the images I was hosting are now broken.

Anyway, like I said above, soon I'm going to convert it all to a pdf and post it here, at pcgamemods, massassi etc.

And thanks for giving me a credit in your readme - I don't think many people who used my tutorial have done that. :) Your skins look amazing, by the way!

Just had to say that I also loved your tutorial. Yours and [HC]-Exar-Kun's were very informative, very complete, and easy to follow. As for modeling, Psyk0's was great for me.

Thanks for your help for us beginners!:)
