Also - now that i have edited the torches i can see that there is some sort of dimension problem, the game wants them to be 2x2 but i want to do them fatter and thus the game cant show 2 sides at once so they look crap...any ideas???

I can send u some pics labeling the different parts of mobs (head,headside,legs ect.) if it is helpful

also if you type in "minecraft 1.7.3 hd textures" , you can find all resolution deafault textures to start from.

thanks so much thats awesome! i want to keep the original resolution as i feel the simplicity of minecraft is one of its most endearing aspects :) And its easier lol! I believe i have settled on a final flavor to use too:

gothic horror - lots of grey and washed out greens, purple and browns. I want to change all the skins, textures and items. what do you think? Do you think paint.net is a good programme to use or can you recomend another? Thanx Sum :)!!!!

I recommend gimp, as it's free, easy, and seems to work well for pixel art (just my opinion though). That sounds like a good theme. I suggest looking at other packs such as the wayukian pack, and the eldpack. Not to use their textures or anything, but to copy their styles for shading and stuff, it can be really useful early on. Oh, and of course when you get close to releasing something, credits, permission, etc are always a must for any textures donated to a pack by others. Good luck! :)

looking good! I suggest making the door slightly brighter, and adding some metal to the torch, like an iron band around the lower part of it... more to give it some detail than anything else.
