**Deleted previous images by mistake, will be adding them back later**

I have been creating images of standard minecraft skins in many different poses. This has helped me get used to working with the limitations of a minecraft character. I have been working on animations and sometimes get frustrated by this. So I decided that creating the different characters in many poses and with different facial expressions would help build my experience and get a better idea of how I would go about making the character animations.

I have had some fun doing this and I would like to share the different images I have made from this.

*NOTE* I did not create all the skin textures for these images, most were provided to me when I was taking requests for the puppeteering.

**Latest Update (Click spoilers to view previous images)(I erased previous images when adding the spoilers...oops)

My personal skin :)


**Will re-add the previous images when I track them down (these spoilers are empty :P )

Could you do my skin? I gave it to you for the HoG animation, if you need it again, I can send it to you.

I still have it. I have continued on the trailer once again. Your knight skin is one of the characters in it. When I render that scene I can send you an image. Sometime in November (expected release for it)

WOAH! Awesome, to be honest we have lost many of the players who gave you their skins. Though I hope your amazing skills will bring them all and more back to the server.

dang, that's pretty awesome... i'd like the use that rig with the perfect squares so i could raise the labcoat from my guy's skin, for animations... every blender rig i've found doesn't have those perfect squares all over the body when i go into edit mode... the legs are usually like rectangles and whatnot.

What rig do you use? And can I use it for animation? Also, I like the blue and black lady skin. Whose character is that?

Your rigging is wonderful, inspires me to work on mine. What render engine do you use, Blender Internal or Cycles?

I use cycles. They don't really update their old render engine anymore now that cycles is their official one. Cycles is great, I am glad they made that decision.
