    Ok, boys and girls... this is as close as I'll probably get to a boot tutorial. The boot we're going to make is the Puma King. I'll be using the easiest method here, and I would prefer any questions be posted here, for the benefit of future bootmakers.

    [​IMG]

    Pictures of the boot can be found here. - www.zappos.com

    Click on the link "multi view" and copy all the various views to a folder on your PC titled "Puma King boot". If you have not already done so, download my boot template from my filefront page. (see link below my Sig of the fastest man in the world.) In my next post, I will explain how to use the template.

    Cheers!

    Ok, now to explain the template:
    [​IMG]

    The template is for the most part mirrored, which means that it is used for both the left and right foot. This is why boots like the Joma #10 and Nike Metatarsal (:D) which have the left boot design different from the right do not work out with this boot model. The areas in yellow and numbered 1 & 2 are non-mirrored, therefore anything placed in these areas will look the same even when the rest of the boot is inverted. Area #1 is good for tongue logos like a Nike swoosh, for example.

    It is possible to determine which colour the studs are by selecting the colour that certain areas of the template are made. On the area of the template where the sole of the boot will be, you will notice rectangles in red, blue and purple. They indicate where the studs will be physically placed on the sole. Matching those, are other rectangles in similar colours. The green rectangle will be the colour that the tip of the studs touching the ground will be. The red, blue and purple will be the colours that the rest of the studs will be.
    At this point, I would suggest that you copy the image above as a bmp file, open the player model in o-edit and select only the last part of the model and view the boot there. You will be able to see for yourself the mirrored and non-mirrored areas, as well as the studs colours and placements.

    Remember though, all questions relating to this tutorial should be asked here - not in a PM. Stay tuned for further installments. Another thing, if there doesn't seem to be much interest in this tutorial, it will be discontinued. I have other things to do.

    Ok - I use photoshop, and my template is in layers. We are now going to create two new layers - one black, and one white. We are going to start with the sole. You want to cut out the sole and use a combination of the magic wand, paint bucket, smudge tool and the clone tool to get it looking something like this:

    You then reshape the sole, and get it to fit on the template. The white layer should then be re-coloured by sampling the sole so it looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    It should still be different layers, though.

    Ok - now that we are almost finished with the sole, time to go back to the body of the boot. We know the inside/outside of the boot, right?
    [​IMG]
    So we go to the left side view of the boot. Cut the heel area with your pen tool as illustrated below,
    [​IMG]
    and place it on the template twice, so that they fit like I have below:

    We'll hide the new layers with the heel textures (it is easier to join them and hide them for now) then on a new layer, create a black area in this shape:
    [​IMG]

    This will form the body of the boot. Let's put the Puma Swoosh on to end this stage of the tutorial. With the Pen Tool, outline the 'swoosh' and copy it to your template, as shown below.
    [​IMG]
    When you make the other areas visible, your boot looks something like this:
    [​IMG]

    Congratulations - your boot is taking shape.
    See you tomorrow.

    Actually, there are girls here - the user names are not neccessarily sexist, and while I can't tell you who the girls are, I remember a few over the years. I would guess that there are probably more girls playing footy in the USA than boys... at least an even amount. So they probably like Fifa too.

    I guess now that more people see how much work I do to create a boot, they will understand my "NO REQUESTS" policy.

    You use the pen tool and outline the area and then you select the 'make selection' option off a right-click and copy-paste.

    Let's take a look at the heel area. Using the Pen tool, select the following area.
    [​IMG]
    Paste it to the template, then duplicate the heel layer. Hide one of the layers, then stretch the other and cut off the top so it looks something like this.

    Select the eraser tool and set the opacity to 50% then select the layer with the side bits of heel and erase the edge that meets your newly created back-heel area. When finished, it should look something like this:
