To create your own clothing, skins and so on
you will need a guide/map for the Dinkie. This map is called UV Map.
Then -> Coffee -> grab your brushes -> go go go!
No idea how to get your brushes going?
Here are some videos:
showing you how to create clothing starting with an UV map.
This video is more tattoo related.
The way to create your own BOM clothing, tattoos or even skin is the same as shown in the videos!
Practice creates masters! AND you will be so proud of yourself once you tamed it ;)
How to use your textures in SL
-> Add your clothing texture in the according field (upper for shirts, lower for pants....I guess you got it now ) - Save!
In the past the Dinkie was textured directly.
For the BoM Dinkie you will have to create a skin and an universal for the tail.
Firestorm -> right click in Inventory -> New Body Parts -> New Skin -> Rename it -> Wear it -> right click -> Edit
-> add your Dinkie textures to head, upper and lower texture -> Save!!!
If you don't have it just leave it blank!
-> Add Eye Texture -> Set Eye Lightness to 100 (!) -> Save!
