I'm pretty new to skining (you can see some other posts for my previous skins) but now i'm intrested in shaders after seeing the energytrooper skin. I have no idea so any help or suggestions would be nice.

Thanks.

Shaders can be easy and difficult. Like for example, if you want something shiny on the skin, you can make a tga file and have that area masked and apply a shader with the shiny effect (I prefer this method). Or you can make two jpeg images, one with the image and another with the effect. But to get the desired effect(s) it can take a lot of trial and error.


Heres a BB with links to many sites that can help in explaining it better, than I can.
