Tutorial: Making Journal Skins from scratch by X-P-T-Z Tutorial: Making Journal Skins from scratch by X-P-T-Z

:bulletblue: Tutorial!! :bulletblue:



That's a simple tutorial for make a simple journal skin from scratch. That's how I made journal skins. I use Google Chrome for search about code and GIMP for make the background.

This tutorial is for anyone who ever wanted to make your own skins, but never knew how. You can use other skins as the basis, but remember: a skin should symbolize your "individual tastes". Put your characters, place strong colors, do whatever you want! Study HTML and CSS, the sky is the limit!

That's a live version from that.

I hope it helps you! ^^

This is too complicated for me...I wonder why dA is making it so hard for a journal skin.

O-O... I do not speak in code... ^u^ But could I commission you to make a journal skin with some of the art I've made? I'm not very good with computers.

Gods, I'm afraid it's still too hard for me. What do you mean that only premium members can use skins? I've just found one on dA and installed it even though I'm not a premium member. Is it going to 'eat' my points now or something????

:iconinoriaizawa:
InoriAizawa Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013
no, but you need to have a premium for it to show up
