SSMU Dolling Tutorial Part 1 by xavs-pixels SSMU Dolling Tutorial Part 1 by xavs-pixels
Big note: When you submit your dolls to Deviantart, which I expect you already know how to do. Always make sure you credit :iconssmu: for making SSMU and any body bases of her you may use. Also make sure to credit every and all artist of any bases and template you use on your dolls as they deserve the credit in how long took them to make them.

Everything I did in my tutorial you can also do in Paint.NET if any of you have or use that program.


This is tutorial I made to help my friend :iconsailorx161: and any newer SSMU Doll makers.

I've been working on this for week or more. This is also my first tutorial so I hope its okay and helpful to several people. This was made in way expecting you to already know how to open ms paint, open pics, be able to copy and paste, make new folders, find folders images are saved in, and know how to save as.

There will also be second part little later posted to help people who have Gimp and Photoshop to make SSMU Dolls. And to help SSMU dollers add transparent background to their dolls if they happen to have Gimp or Photoshop programs.

There will also be tutorial eventually posted to help teach people how to make their own SSMU Clothing and Clothes Templates.

please make the second part to this tutorial. I already know how to make my figures transparent but making the clothes it hard as hell to do. Then again, it is designing.

I wonder if the bases in you tutorial can be used for FKiSS dolls. If so, I'm giving :iconssmu: full credit. Thanks! :heart:

For my animations I use Gimp which is free program to download. But I think there is some good tutorials on DA here for that. I'll find some for you if you want.

When you first go in it is small. You just need to click on it and it will go full size.

Well then you'd have to reload page as it didn't load right or on right side there is green arrow with Download Image. Click that and will bring it up in new window full size. Sorry DA been being glitchy on everything.

Thats cool. I got my new computer which has windows 7 from my uncle on christmas after my dad passed. I like this computer but its still an off brand so may eventually get new one, but ms paint program is good I think.

wow that's amazing. i never thought of doing ssmu that way. i pretty much do it like a doll dress up i.e. dollzmania or the doll palace but that is a very interesting way to do it. i also use paint.net it's really good and a lot better than photoshop to me personally.
very good again with the tutorial :)

Thanks. Well yeah its easy to do that with program that helps give you layers and so many tools to help. This way though helps people who may not have those kinda programs. And this is way I've just began doing ssmu since I began and everyone loves end result so it works.

Thanks. I think my big thing in my art is I make sure to pay attention to every detail to try to get it right. Especially for doll of Sailor Moon I did I just haven't posted yet. Its very different then others as tried to make it look exactly like off anime. Need to finish brooch and get it posted up.

Nice Tutorial! This will definitely help out some of the newer dollers! On a another note, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who does their dolls in MS Paint. :XD:

Thanks, hopefully it will help them. Well MS Paint is only program I have other than gimp. And MS Paint is easier to do pixel art in.

I agree. I have Photoshop CS2 and I find it harder to make pixels in. So I only use it when I need to make my BG transparent or animate something.

Yeah that's all I use gimp for also. Along with linearting and coloring my anime art I do.

You're welcome. I do hope it will help new and future SSMU Dollers.

I just need to take little break and then I'll be able to work on Part 2 of this for Gimp and Photoshop programs. Also make the SSMU Clothes Tutorial to show others how to make their own clothing.

no. but the one journal i posted on the SSMUpixelDOLLS group asked if that's what people wanted to see get made. I just didn't know someone else was going to do it or if I was going to have to

Ah okay. Well I did mine recently when my friend :iconsailorx161: was going to quit ssmu dolling as she got good ideas, was just few mistakes she was making. So decided to make this to help her and others.

So yeah does make it easier as now you can just advertise or link people to this to check out.

Also, nice tutorial :P

I use Paint.NET for all my dolling and it's basically MSPaint with Photoshop elements

Ah thanks. I've heard of Paint.NET but never used or downloaded. So I just use MS Paint and Gimp. So I'll make sure to add in comments that they can do all I did also in Paint.NET.

:iconstargazersammie:
StargazerSammie Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Paint.NET is good because it's free and it's got the ability to give the dolls transparent backgrounds. And it's got a better line tool for drawing out outfits.
Reply
:iconxavs-pixels:
xavs-pixels Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well then I'll have to look into it and try it out. As Gimp sometimes is hard to use line tools in it. And MS Paint got to watch how many mistakes you do, do too many and part of them won't be able to be undone.

:iconstargazersammie:
StargazerSammie Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
On Paint.NET when you draw the line, you can continue to maneuver it any way you want until you click somewhere else or draw a new line.

Do you want the link to the site so you can get it?
