The picture shows how to make a shnauzer smilee, but you can use these steps to design any kind of smilee you want!!
1. Find a picture of the webkinz (doesn't matter if it's plush or virtual) and a smilee that looks a little like the webkinz you are making. This smilee, the reference smilee, will help you with the size and shape of the smilee you are making.
2. Use the reference picture to design part of the smilee's outline. As you can see, the I copied the White Terrier's body shape to use for the schanuzer. But sometimes it's the heads or tails that look alike, for example: the kangaroo's head looks like the reindeer's head (I think) and the wolf's tail looks a little like the husky's tail. If there is no other webkinz that looks like the webkinz that you are making a smilee for, you can still use a reference smilee, but only to get the right size.
3. Draw the rest of the new smilee's outline. For heads you can usually use the circle tool
4. Add finishing touches to the outline, such as ears or tails
5. Color in the main part of the smilee, the body, using the tool that copies the colors (the one that's all over the shnauzer plush in the above picture) copy the color of the body. Pay close attention to any markings the animal has (for example-the schnauzer has white feet) Also add the eyes and nose. The eyes are spread as far as the nose is wide (in the schnauzer; the nose is three pixels wide, so the eyes are 3 pixels apart)
6. Add eyebrows and other details, such as whiskers (and, in the schnauzer's case, a beard )
7 & 8. Add more detail color-wise, such as shading.
9. Save as a .PNG I made a mistake and accidently saved as .JPEG, which messes up the color
10. CONGRATULATIONS!! You have now mastered coloring and designing webkinz smilees! Now try putting them in different positoins and have different expressions (happy , silly:bas: bored:chi: (yes, I think the chihuahua looks a little bored poor chihuahua))
*To see the pictures bigger, copy and paste them into paint and zoom in all the way-to 800% I apologize fr the blurry schnauzer pic; that's what happen's when you save as a .JPEG *
