Default How to Make a Hug-A-Thing Using Paint!

You'll need 10 Bear Bills for this project. You will also need Paint.

Step 1) Go to the Pawforming Arts Center Outside. Click on the Booth and then select character only, and the pose that looks like the pose with two hands in the air.
Have a simple background, such as white and no text.

Step 2) Copy the pose into Paint like so, and make the picture longer:

Click the image to open in full size.


Step 3) Grab the colour picker and put it on the darker white colour around the character. Now, use that colour to fill the rest of the white space when you made the picture longer in, so it looks like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 4) Head to Google and find an object you want to have your character holding. Then, go to any editing software programming drevice and make the picture transparent and to the size that you want it. Double right click it and copy it.

Step 5) Go back to Paint. Open your image of your character up. At the top left should be a little clipboard saying 'Paste.' Click that once, and your picture of the thing you want your character to be holding should be there. Adjust the item and then rotate to the desired position.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 6) Add any text or effects that you want. And there you have - a simple version to make a Hug-A-Thing! Here is my finished result with a packet of Crazy Skittlezzzz!

Click the image to open in full size.


I hope you enjoyed reading this awesome guide! If you have any problems please come and tell me. Also, I know this is another idea of somebody's, but I decided to simplify it for members who don't have editing programs like PhotoShop or Gimp. Please, if this isn't allowed can one person tell me and not twenty one? Thank you!

Great guide, Neon! It is definitely worth trying out. But how do I get an item small enough for my character to hold?

You can also make your character hug it by adding the pic of the skittles or whatever you're using, enlarge it, get your pic of your BABV character, make it transparent and place it in front of the image so it looks like s/he is hugging it.

Save the image you want your character to hold, then make it smaller by compressing it. Then save it and make it transparent.


EDIT: Sorry, totally forgot that Honey posted how to make it small. Thanks!

Step 1) Google the image you want your character to hold.
Step 2) go onto Paint. Resize the image to the approximate length and width that you want it to be.
Step 3) Copy that onto the Bearvile picture of your person, and then make the background any colour, preferably the colour of the background of the item your characters got (unless its transparent)

Another tip is when on BABV, choose a background colour which is bright and your character isn't wearing
