Hi I am using character animator for the first time and don't know how to change the skin colour on a premade puppet. I have selected the Chloe puppet and want to adapt it to look like my design. Is it possible to simply use the paint bucket tool to change the face/arm colour or is it alot more complex? Any help would be much appreciated.

Inside if you select a puppet then pick "Edit Original" from the menu it will start up Photoshop or Illustrator on the artwork file for the puppet. Yes, you just edit this file to change the look of the puppet. Be careful about changing the grouping structure of the puppet - that can lose the rigging already set up if not careful. But changing colors (and other artwork) of existing layers is fine.
