Hyuuga_Yaeesh Character Creation Tutorial


Hey guys! Yeah a lot of you have seen some of my characters, and I’ve received some PMs on about how I make mine… Like maybe 3 or 4? I know that there are enough guides and all but I’m bored and there has been so many requests so I decided to make one.



Rules:
-Anything saying there are already enough guides will be considered a spam.
-No ripping
-Do not rate the end result character, whom I rushed (CnC’s are ok tho, I don’t mind )
-Don’t bother killing this thread, it’ll die itself
-All other N-B/N-A rules apply ^^

Ok now let’s see… First of all, we need a template hmm? There are 2 ways which you can do this. Use a template, or make your own. First make a 466 x 123 canvas. Fill the entire screen with white.

Part 1
1) Now create a new canvas, make it 77 x 77. Go to Edit >> Stroke. Choose Inside and 1 pixel. Now hit CTR + Shift + C and paste the box into a 466 x 123 canvas. Then you position it.




2) Next, you need the dotted box around the circle. Take the font Trebuchet MS, size 9 pixels and at style at none. If you still don’t get it :
Using this, you will type full stops and create something like this : WithBox.png




Make sure you keep things neat, and keep the lines moving fixedly. Keep the above line 6 px above the box, and the line below 6 px below the box. Yeah this is really confusing I know.



3) Next you save this little symbol: pre3.gif



4) Since this is for the face pic, type “Requirement to Unlock” Using these settings: TextSettings2.png


Now so far, you should have something like this: FacepictemplateEndResult.png


Now save your product.



Part 2

First of all, if you made it here, congratulations!

1) Repeat Steps 1 & 2 (but make the 466 x 123 canvas )



2) Type “Skill:” using these settings: TextSettingsforSkillTemplateSKILL.png



3) Type “Cooldown” and “Chakra Required” Using the same settings as above ^^



4) In the real N-A Template, it’s underlined, so underline them using the line tool. Then type: “Classes”
Using these settings:
TextSettings.png

Here’s the end result of this part:



Save again…




Part 3

Congratz! You’re almost done with this step! Next up; the final part of this step.


1) Open up those parts of the template which you just made.


2) Create a new canvas, use a size of your liking. I used 600x500

3) Just past the parts and arrange them, then your final product, and template will be done. My Result :

Now you need the pictures that you’ll use for your characters. The settings vary to make it HQ. Remember to use HQ screenies ^^


Tips
- If you want to watch HQ Naruto Shippuuden episodes ONLINE, try Narutoget
- Download 720p HD videos here
- A good site for screenies is Kakuchi
- Try Sorina’s screenshots too!
- Photobucket, Google and Devianart works too, but remember to use good quality ones.


Part 1

Find the video and get the snapshot for the face pic. It should be of a good quality. I searched on google cuz I don’t have any “Madara” episodes and found this: ScreenieUsed.jpg


1) Select the crop tool. Hold down shift and drag across the face. Try to keep it zoomed in. Then hit CTR+Alt+I. Select 75x75 and resize it. Result: Nothingdone.png



2) Not very HQ huh? Well, go to Filter > Sharpen > Sharpen. Result: Sharpened.png




3) Looks a bit Over Sharpened, this one. Hit CTR + SHIFT + F, or go to Edit > Fade Sharpen. Lower it until it’s a good amount (varies from pictures). I set it to 70



4) Time for some adjustments! Go to Image > Adjustments > Brightness & Contrast. Pump up the contrast. No more than 40, no less than 10. It varies is each pic, as the sharpen. I went for 30


Note: On darker pics, you may add some brightness, but very little, otherwise it would look kinda chibi – ish, or cartoony.


5) More adjustments! Hit CTR + U to bring up the Hue & Saturation slider. I added 20 Saturation and 5 Lightness. This works for most pics, but for some, you should experiment unless they look *eghm* “odd”.


Note: Don’t you DARE touch the hue slider!!!

6) Depending on your pic, you can stop here. If your pic still needs more work, then play more with the contrast, saturation and Match Colour.

7) Optional: Add a border by hitting CTR + C and changing the dimensions to 77 pixels, or 2.72 cm.



My Final Result :
MadaraFacepicFinalProfuct.png


Part 2

Repeat for all the skills… The ones I got were : KyuubiSummon.png EternalMangekyou.png Rinneganinsight.png MeteorDraw.png

Time to arrange things in the template!

3) Add text for the skills. Use these settings:

Then you’ll have something like this: Madaraonlybigtext.png



4) Add text for classes using these settings :)
Trebuchet MS

The debate today is that it's okay to vote for yourself (without being anonymous) since it's not written in the rules. To prove that this is an a-okay situation, I'm going to church tomorrow and during the homily, I will shout "MOTHER TERESA HAS A REALLY FUCKING TIGHT ASS" because doing that isn't written anywhere either.

Why bother making a template when you can just use one effort free. Nice tut but I've seen some better ones here.

Isn't this still the wrong section? o.o
Needs to be in the Custom Character Guides not the Graphics guide

EDIT: nvm, another mod fixed it
