UPDATE (14/12/2015)
I TOOK ALL OF THE SHIT OUT OF THE TUTORIAL, UPDATED THE WRITING AND MADE IT MORE RELEVANT. GOD DAMN I WAS CRINGY A YEAR AGO. I'M SORRY FOR THE OLD TUTORIAL.


SHIMEJI ENGLISH ENHANCED, THE VERSION USED IN THE TUTORIAL, AND THE VERSION I RECOMMEND, CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM HERE: code.google.com/p/shimeji-ee/d…
A video version of the tutorial, complete with over-dubbing and my wonderful stuttering, will be made soon. Hopefully. If I remember.


Again, drop me a comment if you're having issues with it!

I'm actually aware of this. I was still pretty new at Japanese when I made it. This thing's pretty old and I probably will remake and correct all the mistakes at some point, but thankyou for reminding me c:

Get the most recent mischevious/calm version. I recommend mischievous since it's much more active.

I'm trying to create my shimeji and I use Paint.net. Is it the good software?

PNG, and select the second option that comes up when you save it.

It's okay however I did find a chibi base for the Shimeji but it looks like it was done in MS Paint which is a big no for any kind of animation. So, I'm going to re-make the Shimeji for Sai use only. 
Want me to ask the original base maker if I can re-upload it for Sai? I'll credit them as always. That way others can use it.

It would be even more awesome if there was a YouTube tutorial for it. O_o

Try FireAlpaca. Not sure how good it is but I believe it has the same features as SAI does. And I'm pretty sure it's for Mac.

If I delete a few of the images, would the actual shimeji itself be affected?
Reply
:iconscenikeight:
scenikeight Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2015
Yes, it would either not be able to open or would turn invisible on random
However in one of the folders, there's two files that you can edit in notepad (I can't remember what they are, but they're easy to find) that contain a list of things the shimeji can do. If you find the commands relating to the deleted images and remove them, it should be able to function properly without them in place.
