So, I also wanted to share my Personal Skin just like Ere376 did :)

I made this for almost 6 hours

I like this character (Neku Sakuraba) so that's why I put too much effort to do it! I was taught by Ere376 and NapeSlayer at shading :) Thanks to them :)) Soo, I am not gonna share this skin because it is so special! I only share it to those I trust so much :)

but then.. I improved ( i think ) then i will now share this skin :DDD

If you like it or this helped you.. click the thank button to thank me :D

How I make skins!
I made this tutorial because my friend Deux Dubstep-senpai wanna know how I make skins.

I have two styles of making skins. The Toon Style and the 3d style.

Toon Style
Skin with outline and shadows, looks a little bit from the anime.

3d Style
Just shadows but the details are good.

In this tutorial, I'm gonna teach you Toon Style of Skinning. This is easy if you studied NarikoChwan 's tutorial. So before, proceeding to my tutorial, study the parts of the body.

Now let's start

What you need?

The original pic of the character that you are going to make
Mind and Hand (of course)


Open Gimp, click the eyedropper tool and check Sample merged and Set foreground color in the tool options.

Now, Click the Airbrush and set the following:

Brush=Hardness 025
Now you're all set

Making the Skin

First, Download this template (traced from Kano 's template) and open it with gimp, as you can see it's transparent.
Second, Click file>open as layers and open the pic of the character (mine's minamimoto's taboo form from twewy)
(Dont mind the black background)

Let's start with the hair, use the free select tool from the tools and trace the hair. You can already imagine it by just looking. So, if the hair of ur character is like this, you can leave some space to make it transparent.

After tracing, use the eyedropper tool to copy the color of the hair of the pic and use the brush or pencil to fill the hair of ur skin.

On the color bar ( i dunno the term ) click the one on the bottom-left part to make it black and white.

And click the Select by color tool and click the hair part and then proceed to shading!
to shade, use the airbrush and draw the edge of the hair. Like this

now to put the lighting, click the reverse on the color bar

to make it white and black and use airbrush to lighten the middle part of the hair

and the outcome would be like this
Proceed, with the outlining. Click the free select tool and do the following

Fill it with black


Add details

Now proceed to the face, trace the face like what u did in the hair, eyedrop the skin tone of the character and fill the face and shade
proceed to the eyes, use the free select tool and select the eye part of the orig. character and copy it
paste the eyes in the middle part of the face just like what was shown

and then trace the eyes, be sure to put the pupil of the eye in the middle.


Make the mouth and add details

Now do the same with the body, trace, fill, add details, shadow.. you can also copy some parts from the orig. char


In the jacket, just like before: Outline, shade, detail, trace, and etc.


In the pants part, you do the same, trace and shade. You can also get some parts from the orig. char

now proceed to the arms. making the arms is like making the face. trace, fill, shade, add details and tadaa!


Now the blades

It's easy, just make fill it all, and add details.. i put some transparent parts in my skin..

And it looks like this
now click the eye of the template layer in the layer panel to hide it!

Things mentioned in the tutorial (click to open it or download it) :
Sho Minamimoto
NarikoChwan 's tutorial(not available yet in the new forum)
「Kano」 's template

This is how I make skins! I hope you learn something new!

3d Style

Same settings with the toonstyle
So in this tutorial, we are going to make Goku's normal form for Sasha :D

First, get an image/original pic and if it has a background, remove it. By using the select by color and delete it.. you can adjust the Threshold..

Trace the head with the Free Select Tool and fill it with the skin color (get the skin color by using the eyedropper tool and you can adjust it in the color palette if you're not satisfied)
Shade by using the airbrush tool and with the color orange

Put the eye and shade

Now the nose and mouth, make the nose by shading.. like what was shown.. and mouth by using brush tool

Trace the outline of the hair

So, im making a black hair but i filled it with dark gray so i can shade with black and white

You can add a part of the hair by selecting it, invert the selection and shade black on its sides

Now invert the selection again and shade it and lighten some parts

Put more hairs

Now to remove the hole on Sasha's back of the hair.. draw some black parts on its head

No Template looks like this

Draw ears.. shade its edge

Now fill the body part and shade some parts to make muscle like what was shown and the shirt.. and shade some parts for the shirt to show the crampled parts..

The Jacket, make the collar with the skin color to make it looks like its neck
Pants, just do the same..
And the arms, shade some to make it looks like muscle..
Draw the blades, be sure to draw in the handles or else it would look like LEGO!

Now that's all, hope you'll learn something new and useful!

DragonBallZ Skin Compilation

This contest has ended. Congratulations to:

Minitigress for winning the banner contest.
NekuSenpai for winning the thank button contest.

Thank you to everyone who submitted entries.

Original Post:
First contest of the forum won't be about skins, but for some graphical changes to the forum.

The first part is changing the "thank" button from a thumbs up to something more clear. The button should be the same size and have the same style as , the only difference being that it says "thank" on it.

The second part is redesigning the forum banner. A lot of people don't like the pixelated edges (I'm not exactly an artist if you can't tell), so I will be opening it up to design. It should be in the same style, in fact I'd prefer it be the same thing except with higher quality figures.

To enter, please reply to this post within the next two weeks, the winners of either part of the contest will get 5 points towards their artist rank.

EDIT: A clarification on the "thank" button. It should say "thank", not "thanks". That is the grammatically correct term.

Original Post:

Download the .rar file and you can check out the effects I use and all of the layers.
It's been mostly labeled, but since it's the first skin I worked with in the update
Some of it is just a clusterfuck of layers. I've learned how to organize some stuff
So that the layers are easily applied with effects and stuff, but that will be
An experiment for the 3 Asuna skins I'll be making. Enjoy.
