We've seen it all, from wonderful color palettes that are chillingly cool and strikingly warm, to skins with eyes in 2x2 format, to realistic interpretations to things such as animals, and so on.

Hi, my name is Dr. Gintoki Jall, also known as Dr. Jall, and I have a PHD in Skinology, which is pretty much the pixel equivalent of cosmetology and computer science.

In my years at Skin Uni, which is run by locals at the professional center of all skins, Skindex, I've learned exactly what originality is, how to make these jarring mechanics we call skins so mesmerizing and original, and how the creator of the skin affects the overall idea being conveyed in the pixelated creations.

Ever since I graduated in the year of 2015, it has been my dream to make everyone original on this unoriginal website we reside on--Planet Minecraft, also known as PMC.

I have been observing activities on PMC since graduation in approximately May/June by private messaging several attendees, reading the blog posts and forums, reviewing the skins uploaded daily, and more until I finally found the answer.


Today, I will share with everyone the answer to the question we all desperately yearn for:

"How can I become more original?"



Step 1:
Talent


People spread the word that talent doesn't exist, that it's just a myth, a figment of our imagination.

As I have a PHD in Skinology, I can prove that talent DOES exist, and that it is a REQUIREMENT to make original skins!

Why else would the "Got Talent" series exist?



Step 2:
Shading

The basic premise of shading is quite simple.

Some say "create your own shading, thief!" or "just think of something you like :)", or even this:



All of these are false!


I can't say the actual name of the person, so let's call them Oblivious.

Copying Oblivious' shading is the key to winning at skinning and originality.
She's so original that not even the hipster wearing lime green sweater pants with a rainbow sweatshirt and pink thigh high boots with purple laces could compare.


You can either copy her shading by stealing her skins, or by claiming her skins are your own!
You could even pretend that the account Oblivious belongs to you!


Want to know other ways to shade?

Here's a conversation with a fellow professional I had earlier! It has my signature, therefore it's approved.






Step 3:

Colors

just steal all the palettes you see!

What, did you seriously think it was rocket science? You must really be a fool.




Step 4:
Your Account

Your account itself has to be original! Steal a shiny and dramatic anime image off of google images like these:



Using icons like these really show off that you're one with the otakus, which will give you free subscribers!
Also, be sure to not only say "POPREEL" in all caps in your titles every time you get a popreel, but also post a blog post about it!

Also, make sure to "quit" every once in a while to cause drama and intrigue people to subscribe. Just come back 3 days later, it'll be okay.

Be sure to announce hiatus' with large, colorful text on your profile AND with a skin. Same for other absences.

Being original also requires a fanbase, so just follow these steps closely and you'll have a supportive, anime obsessed fanbase!



CLIMAX:

In my studies, I've concluded that everything I've said makes a true, original prototype on this website. If we all follow these rules, Planetminecraft will become a better place.

Of course, there is one easy way around all of this. It's incredibly difficult to master, but this is the 100% ign 10/4 recommended pro tip:

stop

just stop

we don't want you to become like me
if you take up skinning, your soul will be sold to the devil they call [email protected]

this is a warning! if you start skinning, YoU""lL NEVER BE ABLE TO ESCAPE





fin




Ok but seriously, I heard about 6 months ago that people were complaining about how "unoriginal" the skins on the popreel were. If you think something's original, don't go around trying to change other people and what they enjoy making and maybe reevaluate what you're doing instead and become more "original" than everyone else.

How do you become original? Do something different. Take a look at the popreel and change it up. What is everyone else doing and how can you separate yourself from them?

I don't have the answers to any of these questions though. You have to find them yourself.
...that's about it, back to annoying my dog with my love for him. he's a real cutie


Creditplease don't actually follow this tutorial. lots of people will get angry :>

whatever kind of doctor you are, all that matters is that you can decipher this ancient language we call doctor's signatures.

I actually put a small disclaimer in the "credit" section, kind of like how the side effects of medicine are featured really quickly at the end of a commercial.
