I got paint shop pro in order to do some skinning, unfortunately i have no idea on how to use it. I tried the redlemons link on another thread but it's a dead link. Are there any other tutorials on paint shop pro for skinning out there?

I'll tell you a secret... www.google.com and do a search for paintshop pro AND tutorials or Skinning AND Quake or whatever! Plenty of excellent stuff if you have the will to spend 5 minutes on those things called search engines. But don't tell anyone, it's a secret!

Most of these so-called tutorials aren't tutorials at all, mostly non-tutorials. They dont go in depth about how to use an actual program in terms of skinning, they just tell you what files to edit and what to save and rename. what's that? i could have told you that. I want the DEFINITIVE tutorial which takes you STEP BY STEP using a PROGRAM. i think there would be a lot more skinners out there if we didn't have to figure everything out by ourselves. i want serious replys only. no search engines, no vague answers.

Before you start to do anything you need to learn how to use your paintprogram, therefore use search engines. After you know how to use your paintprogram(tools, functions, shortcuts, etc) you can go read some skinning tutorials(shading, lighting, relief, texturing, etc). There are no step by step tutorials on how to skin with that or this program (that's called practice and it come with practice).

Try these video tutorials.

but they won't help you much if you can't use your paintprogram...

try this to start with this and try building some basic textures.

BTW: KMAN, at least half of the links in the sticky thread are dead I think.
