View Full Version : Is skinning that hard?

04-23-2002, 11:51 PM
I was just getting interested in making skins, but then once I opened the different picture files for the characters I quickly wondered how on earth to make a good skin. It looks pretty difficult, but I've never skinned before so I don't know what a good place to start is. Any advice from those who are skin veterans?

I'm no exptert. But if it were easy, more people would do it! ;-)

But you should start by checking out some of the more heafty paint programs available. The most popular I've seen is Paint Shop, Adobe Photoshop, and Fireworks.

If you learn how to use any one of these programs, you can pretty much figure out the rest from there. Part of the process is knowing how to texturize in the first place.

Or, so I'm told.

I can use photoshop fine, I've just never tried making skins.
