Well I just got the interest of skinning, and I dont know where to begin. I've searched, google'd, and looked everwhere on beginning tuts on how to skin. I want to make skins, or must alter some to my own idea.. not start completly from scratch. Like take a Mandalorian skin and make it into something, or a Kyle Katarn skin.. Anyone can give me links to where I could start, also the tools i'll need. I've heard ill need: Adobe Photoshop (i have that.. 7.0) and Milkshape.... So plz help a new guy out :)
For skinning the only programs you'll need are a program you can alter textures with, like Adobe photoshop (or gimp which is free ;))and notepad. (Milkshape is for moddeling, not skinning) As for tutorial's try searching the forums, because I'm sure that has been asked
Ah.. searched quite well.. couldn't find anything. If you could just give me the basics.. as far as I see, this is hat i need todo Download MODView or some sorta skin viewer.. like somehow break up the pieces of the skin.. draw in photoshop, then save the jpgs and combined them in a .pk3 file. and vwahala! sorta..
right? please.. answers.. help :(
I'm not a skinner, so i dont think i can help you any further :uhm: But i just remembered jk2files has a tutorial http://www.jk2files.com/file.stuff?body=CustomSkinningTutorial
