This is a skinning tutorial written by my friend Louis Lux over at This tutorial covers, in reasonable depth and with several pictures, the process by which Louis Lux skinned Aragorn's bedroll.


Since a lot of you have requested skinning tutorials I thought I would make a brief one about my method.

Main photoshop tools you'll be using:
- pen tool
- dodge tool
- burn tool
- layers
- layer styles

A good knowledge of these tools will give you something of an edge when learning to skin, so LEARN THE BASICS

I use a tablet for some small detailing but it's not really needed.

As example I'll be using Aragorn's bed roll.
