Do you want to make a skin, but you aren't really good with photoshop or any of those sites? Then I have the solution for you! Just follow this simple guide, and you'll have your own skin collection in no time!


STEP 1

Go to http://www.minecraftskins.com/ and create an account.



STEP 2

Go to Editor



STEP 2.5 ( Optional)

If you want to base your skin off another skin from another site, save the skin on your computer and press the upload from computer button. If it is from the same site, just press edit.



STEP 3

Paint ;)



LEGEND

Pencil: Used to color one block at a time.

Paintbrush: Used to paint in different tones of the same color.

Arrow to the left: Undo.

Arrow to the right: Redo.

Color picker: To choose a color from the skin.

Black paint tube: Darken the color you are using.

White paint tube: Lighten the color you are using.



TIPS

The orange square at the right that look like a player are parts of your skin. Click on one to make it disapear, and therefore make it easier to paint.

You can change your skin's position by clicking the black box with standing writen in it.

When painting a leg or an arm, the oposite arm/leg will be painted the same.





I hope I helped you, this is my first tutorial, and I plan on making more. If you have any sugestions or questions about what I should show you in my tutorials, leave a comment! :)

PS: Sorry for the lack of pictures, I'm still learning to use all the tools myself :P

Haha I have no idea actually :P But I'm talking about all those things you install just to make a skin, kind of pointless if you can make it just as easily on this site. :P

Ahh, lol.. I'd actually like to do it on PhotoShop, but then you have to flip the picture and screw it up to make it look like a png of a skin... so yeah... (Photoshop should add a Minecraft Skin feature!) Lolz

I know right! :P Otherwise you should try photofiltre, it's a much easier and simpler copy of photoshop.
