Making your own skin textures
You don’t have to have any experience of skin making or digital drawing in order to prepare the skin for peitites, since there are great free resources available on the web.
Eloh Eliot’s Another skin templates are wonderful template and are available from
her resource page.
Information about how to modify those templates can be found on the web such as;
In this guide, I focus more on petite specific rules.
a. Save the skin textures without alpha layer.
Alpha layer will cause strange look when you apply the textures to mesh body.
In order to get rid of alpha, please save the textures as TGA24bit or as JPG, not TGA32bit or PNG.
b. Female ver. of petite head comes with mesh eyelash. So in the head texture, hide eyelash layer if it is turned on.
c. Feet of regular SL avatar is very primitive and there were no way to fit feet shade to the petite feet. So just turn off the entire shade layer for the feet.
If you are happy with your texture, upload them to second life.
Applying textures to petite body
First, rez the petite body on the ground. Be aware of prim costs XD
The body consists of 3 heads, one eyelash, upper body, and lower body.
2 of the heads are hidden but you can switch them using mesh control HUD, or if you press Ctrl+Alt+T, you can see the invisible head.
Drug and drop head texture to all 3 heads.
Drug and drop upper body texture to upper body.
Upper body is separated to 4 faces, shoulder, upper arms, elbows, and other part. So please make sure to apply texture to all 4 parts.
Similarly, lower body is separated to 3 parts, crotch, knees, and other part.
Rez the hands and apply upper body texture to it.
Rez the feet and apply lower body texture to it.
Feet mesh is separated to toe and other part. Apply texture to both parts.
Nails and eyelashes are separate mesh. If you accidentally replaced texture for these parts, you can find the original texture here.
Take the rezzed body and done! Your original petite is ready!
