kindly read more!

welcome to this skin, where skinner’s questions are answered. (As best as possible of course!)
Here, don’t be afraid to learn and ask. Let’s learn from each other!
Of course, that’s not the ONLY reason why we are here. (That’s for when I’m finished explaining!!!!)

I will be giving a TUTORIAL of skindex! Since,well, this is a positivity account, why not do that as well? It all fits in so well. From things like navigating, editing, and the to-dos and what not *winks*

TOPICS WE WILL BE GOING OVER (and more?)

Skin making

The tutorial itself is in the comments, because skindex description is very limited. Now that you know how this works go to the comments and don’t comment until I say you can because it’s rude while I’m typing :)

if your skin is a guy in a bikini then no people with common sense won't like that
Thx alot! Do you have any tips for pixel art?
You welcome!
My tips for pixel art generally is the same way you draw in reali life. Also use varieties of colors to make it POP!

You may comment now! I might not reply fast because my hands need to rest <3
TO WRAP IT UP
I hope you have a gotta time here in the skindex! Go meet new people and make friend along the way. Don’t stress over things like “what if people don’t like my skins” people probably do!
Always put your best effort on EVERY skin. This was something I heard from someone when I was just starting out and it has stuck with me ever since! <3
SKIN MAKING TIPS (continued)
Try to learn about color theory! There are basically colors that go well together. What colors have the most contrast with each other. Once you figure out what colors it will be a piece of cake! What I love about this is also that there is an EXPERIMENTAL side to this!!

Last tip for skin making: design
Just try to make something you think is appealing. This is not as important since there are skins ranging from simple to complex but still something you should be aware of!
SKIN MAKING TIPS (continued)
Alright we got the big one out of the way. Sorry it was so long!

More tips include: practice, which is pretty, well obvious, but it really works wonders! (Because you know what to do now!)

Another one was editing others skin. If you see a skin where you rlly like you can edit (but don’t post it without permission/credit!). Examine the colors. See how you can incorporate this in your own skins. Same thing with shading hair and the body.
Once you get the hang of it I SUGGEST YOU DO NOT COPY THE STYLE EXACTLY THE SAME.

There are people who don’t like it and also makes you just a clone of someone else. Which is boring and rude depending on the person
SKIN MAKING TIPS
making a skin is easy, but everybody wants to make AMAZING skins, right? In my opinion, all skins are unique (unless you reposted someone else’s) it all has different styles because it was made by different people.

Best tip is to HUESHIFT.
It’s when you add another color while shading a skin (sorry if that sounds confusing). In every good skin, there is the BASE color the shadows (dark parts of the skin) and the highlights (which I don’t rlly need to explain this one). Darkening and lightening colors isn’t just simply adding black. And then adding white. The colors would look muddy and not as appealing. What we want to do it to make it POP by MOVING THE COLOR WHEEL to another color. The rule of thumb is: dark colors- shift to purple and highlights- shift to yellow
SKIN MAKING
Everybody wants to make skins because that is why we are here in the first page! Whether we make skins for family, personal use or friends it’s just as important to know how to create your own!

That sounds easy. I know. Make something and then press upload. (Read the rules along the way IN RED if you are new!!)

There’s really no limit to what you can make, just don’t make hateful stuff or things you just don’t want to see yourself.
NAVIGATION
this one is pretty straightforward but still needs some explaining, since skindex doesn’t straight up tell you what the buttons mean.

Top page is basically the page that shows you trending skins. From my knowledge it is the amount of likes in a certain time period and people commenting and clicking on the skin a lot. To easily access this page go to the TOP or simply clicking/pressing on “THE SKINDEX” at the top of the screen.

There is also a handy bar menu where you can explore all kinds of things and make your own skins!
