|1. Start with your completed doll that you want to add the fishnets to (or just a base if you prefer adding them first).
|2. Create a new layer called "Fishnet" above your base layer, but below you clothing layers.
|3. Set your foreground to whatever colour you want your fishnets to be. Try to avoid absolute black, use a dark grey instead as this makes shading easier.
Using the outline of the bases leg as a guide, draw in the outline of the fishnets. Remember to close the outline off underneath the clothes so that there are no gaps in the outline. I usually hide the clothing layer at this point to make it easier to see.
|4. Select the Flood Fill tool. Make you settings the same as above.
|5. Locate Textures under the Style palette. Hold the left-mouse button down on the little black arrow for a few seconds under a little menu flys out (as shown above). Change the setting from No Texture , to Texture .
|6. Click on the image of the texture to bring up the Texture dialogue box.
|7. Click on the drop down arrow to bring up a list of all available textures. Scroll down the list until you find a texture you like. Dither 50pct is good for a small fishnet, & Polka Dot makes a very nice pattern, but choose on you like. For this example, I am using Dither 25pct.
Click on the texture you want to use, then click on OK.
|8. Flood Fill the interior of the outline you drew in step 3 with the texture.
|9. To give a more realistic look, you can lower the Opacity of the Fishnet layer slightly.
|Add some footwear & you're done!
