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
Bad-Blood's avatar
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.
aloafofbrad's avatar
i never actually thought about making new ones o.o i'll have to try that.

what program will u use for this?
Bad-Blood's avatar
photoshop , but u can use the sae technique in other platforms.
Stacey104201's avatar
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..
Sweet-DooDo's avatar
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..
Sweet-DooDo's avatar
ok i might have been confused O_o but thank you for the amazing tutorial!
