Hey Guys! Having trouble finding skin ideas? Well... this is just what you need!

Well, every skin has an inspiration right? You can find alot of things in your room, house, or even outside, that will help you find inspiration. Here are a few examples of where you can start first! :

~Your Room/House~
Your room is the most perfect place to look. Try starting out with the colour/theme of your room right now! If your room has many different colours in it, try to find the most 3 standing-out colours in your room and use it in your skin!


If that does not help you, your house is next. Your house probably has alot of things in it, so try looking for items that you like or love. Like a flower vase or a curtain? Who cares! as long as YOU, the skin creator, like it! If you are doing a flower vase, for example, the flowers and/or vase's shape can be a little design for your skin!

~Character Based~

Do you have a favorite character in your cartoon, anime, movie etc? Well... what you can do is make a skin of them! Okay, so first things first, pick a character! From cartoons to real life, anyone! Next you have to go on 'Google Images' and search up your characters name. Next look for a picture that you would like to make skins with. Make sure that the picture is a full based body one, the best one you can find are ones like these:

Basically, a picture that has multiple faces/expressions and body poses of the character. If you can't see any 'full body' ones like the ones I showed you, look for 'chibi' images :)
They also have the full body in it too :)
Now, kind of minimize your picture and put it in the background while your skinning to help you.
That was a really easy step wasn't it?

~Own Characters~

One of the most fun parts of skinning is making your own characters :D. You can look at a few characters that you like and MASH them up together in one :D Or another way of making your own character-skins is to try to make your own avatar and then make it into a skin :D PRESTO! You have your own fully-original skin :)

~Skin Requests~
Now, if all is hope lost OR you don't have an imagination (lol)... you can take skin requests! You can start by editing your PMC profile and saying: Taking Skin Requests! I will make it ASAP :P You can do that or even open up a skin shop on the PMC Forums or make a blog post about it! This process will help you get ideas for your future skins and on a plus side, you become a kind person!

Now, this is all I can say for now, so yah... if you like this:

And and happy skinning :D

When I have no idea what to do I listen to music and then I almost always get a clear picture of a character from the tune/lyrics/video ^^

Thanks! I find it easier than most forms of what people are usually 'inspired' by... Quite often I have to use 1.8 cause my idea doesn't work in the 1.7 editor style :P
