Hey guys! Hovstr here, and today I'm gonna give some tips on how to find that one true skin that you are proud to wear into a pixel battle.

You all know the basic tips:

.Think original
.Think of things you like
.Think of what you think is cool

For example, if you like for say, My Little Pony, and you don't want to be some ol' regular pony that everyone has seen before, then do something original! Make that pony the most awesome pony in the world! I like to think sometimes of thinking of skins having personalities, background stories, characteristics, ect. It just makes them more fun and unique to me, so make that pony a color you like, give it a cutie mark of a symbol you like, ect.

Now, I know alot of you are having extreme skin troubles because overall, you most likely SUCK AT IT. (I do too). Which is why we have our lovely friends on here that we can spill our gratitude out to, because some people on here do requests and commisions and what not. Some people might say "But the person sucks at skinning!!!1111" Well, there are many excellent skinners on here that do requests, but that doesn't mean you need to spam them, or beg and plead for them to make you a skin, if they say no the first time then they probably mean it.

Now, with requests, if you ask for a skin that is highly detailed then odds are they will more than likely take a very long time, or give up. If they do end up with a skin you like, then be sure to thank them for putting their time and effort into your pleasure. If you take the skin and say nothing then they'll probably decrease in excitement to make skins for others.

Also be sure to be very nice to the person who might make you the skin, if you say "Make me a skin" odds are they will make up an excuse to not do it. C'mon, I would. xD

If you are a great skinner and you can make your own skin perfectly fine, WHAT DE HECK ARE YOU DOING HERE?!?!?!?!

Lol, bye guys, I hope I helped some people. Have a great day! Make sure to Comment if you have questions/feedback, Diamond if you enjoyed, and Subscribe if you would like to see more of these blogs!

I'm alright at making skins, definitely not amazing, but sometimes I take requests from my friends, and it gives me a sort of happiness to make a good skin enough that I'm proud in public. I feel that when I make my own, unique, (mostly sucky) style, it shows my personality more. Just an opinion!

Some people can't make skins, and sometimes they are just really horrible at it and think to themselves that they would like a better one. If they do, they can nicely ask someone to make them one. Period.

Excellent article! I am a stickler for originality on skins. My skin is simply a pixelized me in one of my outfits I wear, and it looks different from almost any other person.
