when i used to make emotes like crazy, day-in-day-out, i would always use the technique on the right. it's been like two years since then and i still remembered how to use it xD i was off a bit i think but i still had the gist of it

yea , once u understand the logic of the shading , u won't need to comeback and see how it was done , u can even create new ones.

is it okay to use regular old MS Paint?
Bad-Blood's avatar
if u want to make animated emoticons , u have to use other softwares , but if u want to make static emoticons , u can use ms paint for that.

i used your tutorial and there's something wrong in it. in the color palette there are only 6 colors, though it's seven steps with seven colors. please fix that :)

Really? I just looked at the colour palette and I see 7 colours :O_o: of course I could be wrong..

the palette has 7 colors including the outline, but you used 8 steps including the outline. so there's a color missing. maybe if you don't get what i mean you should try using your tutorial..of course, i might be confused a bit after all..
