In this tutorial, I'll be teaching you how to pixel a full doll! I pixel shade, so this tutorial can be used for any paint program, although I use MS Paint, cos it's simple and easy to use, although this tutorial can easily be translated into PSP, or Photoshop etc.
This is my new revised full doll tutorial. The previous one was getting a bit old and I’ve learned a few more tricks, and also I found it a bit cluttered. So I wished to construct my tutorial better. First, I will go through terms, effects and techniques I find relevant for my way of dolling. Also, i'll add my usuall settings. I’m using Adobe 7 for this. The small icons with a black corner means that it's interchangeable. Click and hold on the icon in adobe, and several alternatives will pop up.
"What can I say, I'm a sucker for full doll tuts. My last one was looking a bit shabby, so I decided to make a new one, but... let's just say I got a bit carried away. My last one had top, jeans, shoes and hair; this one has top, skirt, shoes, socks, armwarmers, hair, hat, necklace and a logo on the t-shirt, just for good measure. I figure you can ignore what you don't want, but it's there if you want it. A couple of times I give you outlines for other things you could do at suchandsuch a step (i.e. I have three tops, I only shade one). These are here to help but not be taken and used on your own dolls."
My last full doll tutorial was done in 2005. 2005! Frankly, it was about time I updated it. This one is a lot smaller than the last one, but each item of clothing seems to have a lot more steps - at least there are a lot of pictures to look at. Tutorial is split into three sections - Jeans, T-Shirt, and Hair.
