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?


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



THE SETUP



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

Image

Now, Click the Airbrush and set the following:

Opacity=30
Brush=Hardness 025
Size=Depends

Image
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)

ImageImage
(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.
Image

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

Image

And click the Select by color tool and click the hair part and then proceed to shading!

Image
to shade, use the airbrush and draw the edge of the hair. Like this
Image

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

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

Image

and the outcome would be like this

Image
Proceed, with the outlining. Click the free select tool and do the following

Image

Fill it with black

Image

Tadaa!
Image

Add details

Image

Image

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

Image
proceed to the eyes, use the free select tool and select the eye part of the orig. character and copy it
Image
paste the eyes in the middle part of the face just like what was shown

Image

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

Image

Outcome:

Image

Make the mouth and add details

Image

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

Image

Outcome

Image

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

Image

Outcome

Image

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

Image

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



OUTCOME

Image

Now the blades

Image

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

Image

And it looks like this

Image
now click the eye of the template layer in the layer panel to hide it!

Image



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..

Image
Image

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)
Image
Shade by using the airbrush tool and with the color orange

Image

Put the eye and shade

Image

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

Image

Trace the outline of the hair

Image

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

Image

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

Image

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

Image

Put more hairs

Image

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

Image

No Template looks like this

Image

Draw ears.. shade its edge

Image

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..

Image

The Jacket, make the collar with the skin color to make it looks like its neck


Image

Image
Pants, just do the same..


Image
And the arms, shade some to make it looks like muscle..


Image
Draw the blades, be sure to draw in the handles or else it would look like LEGO!

Image

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

Thanks. I don't exactly plan to make skins in the same style you do (nothing personal) I like the toon style idea and plan to work it in my own ways. I'm just glad to know how to erase stuff in gimp since pain.net sucks in comparison.
