Please do not report me or ban me for doing this, and I have bought the game, but I'm only making this blog to help people who haven't bought the game and wanted a skin. :)

Step 1. You need to download WinRar archive. Download it here.
Step 2. Go to "Start", then type in "%appdata%", without quotes. If you have Windows XP, click "Run" instead.
Step 3. It should bring up a folder called roaming, click on ".minecraft", and go to bin.
Step 4. Inside of bin, there should be a file called "minecraft", right click it and click "Open With >> WinRar Archiver"
Step 5. There should be a lot of different files, go ahead and click the one that says "mob."
Step 6. Click on "char.png" and open it with Paint.net, Gimp, or any other editing picture program.
Step 7. Edit the skin to your way, and Save it. When you go back to the archive, it says:"File "char.png" has been modified. Do you wish to update it in the archive?" CLICK YES.
Step 8. Close WinRar, and open up Minecraft and your edited character should be modified!
Hoped this helps~

You never need WINRar, it just helps a bit with .zip managing..

I believe that this is perfectly legal and I will do this not because I got the game for free but because I can't find the right skin I want

How do you make the head transparent so it's not a white block?

Your friends can not see it because this is simply editing the default skin. That means only you will see it on your computer, unless your friends change the steve skins on their computer to the same one you did. Also, you can't have transparent skins in Minecraft. It does not work without mods.

Basically... basically... hahahaha, basically that is a texture pack xD , just it's only the default skin your modifying, only you can see it. I have done that in my texture pack, the default character as been remade, so for all who don't have a legal game they will see that skin on them when using my texture.

Texture packs are legal so...
