Thank you again.

These tutorials are amazing, thank you so much! I'm a complete ditz when it comes to Photoshop (or any other paint/photo program, for that matter) and I've just done my first basic recolour from your first tutorial...yipee!!! I'm off to try this one now. It'll probably take the rest of the day But at least I can follow your tutorials, which is progress in itself LOL. If I can do this, I'll be forever grateful. Thank you!!!!

I'm glad to hear all the comments on the tutorials - good or bad. Please feel free to go to the skinning forum if you have questions or suggestions, too. You can even post pics of things you've made. I'd love to see!

thanks for the great tutorial-I never knew I was taking the long way in adding textures, yours look much better than mine too - it's those transparancies- all my clothes looked like it was bleached. great help, thanks

All this time I've been wondering what the secret was to adding textures without losing the details beneath them... thank you for this tutorial! I'm going to go try out the new layer/opacity.

Can I add if you want fabric swatch pictures, go to www.fabric.com? I actually order my (real world) fabric from them and they have a lot of great pictures. I am not sure how great they are for skinning, but they have a lot of choices. Hope this helps!

Fabric websites are great for textures, but they have to have nice, flat, undistorted swatches with a repeat of the pattern in the swatch. You might be suprised to find, too, that metal and plastics manufacturing sites have some interesting textures, as well! All you need to do is colorize!

If you want to search for textures, go to google.com and pick "image search". Type in stuff like "paisley swatch" or "plaid red" something that would indicate a print of a pattern, and start looking. Often, this will lead you to pages that have other useable textures as well.

Photoshop is an image editing software. It's on the pricey side, but you can look around for older versions on sale secondhand, or you cna check for other, less expensive programs. I believe some people like Gimp, which I understand is free, and can be downloaded from the web, but if you have questions on how to use it, I won't be able to help you there.

New, it's about $600 - you can find used copies, and if you're a student you can get discounted copies through your school.

Well, lets just say, you COMPLETLEY lost me at step 19. Im lost. Very lost. In a huge maze. With man eating crocodiles chasing me. Any help?

I don't get the bit about the triangles. And how do you get the shading right? so i've done all the grayscale and brightness. I pasted in one sleeve shape, perfect, now how do i get it all to look all shadingy (<-- very technical terms, i know) without it all being one huge block colour?> How do i get the pattern to have all the same shadowy bits as the real pj top?

When you paste your texture, or paste into, it lays over your image completely. It's opaque. What you're doing after you've pasted your texture into each section of the outfit is reduce the opacity. If you click on the pictures online, or print out the tute, you'll see my lines and circles and arrows showing where that slider is on the right to adjust the opacity. When you reduce the opacity, the original shading actually shows through. You flatten the image, merging the texture and the grayscale image, then fix your color back up.

You know, tutorials for this stuff can get pretty involved - you should read through them a time or two and then still follow them as you go. . .You adjust your hue/saturation, and brightness/contrast (if necessary) to bring back the original color.
