Skin Tutorial #1 - Color Tinting
Color tinting in skins is a common trick to add interest and color to your skins. For this tutorial, you only need a program called Medibang Paint Pro or similar programs such as FireAlpaca, GIMP, Photoshop, etc. In this tutorial, I will be using MCSkin3D, also.

Step 1
Download your skin by going to File > Save as.

Import the file into your photo editing program by going to File > Open

Step 2
Add a new layer by pressing the New Layer button/paper looking icon button thing.

Make the new layer a Clipping layer and then go over that whole layer with a very saturated color of choice. This color will be the color you want on your skin that will be tinted.

Step 3
Click on the Blending Normal tab and then click Overlay.

Now your skin should look something like this.

Step 4
Lower the opacity of the clipping layer to your desires.

Done!


That concludes my first skin tutorial. Thank you!

i thought people did this without editing the skin or anything and i thought they had some like amazing talent for "color themes" (what i call it lol)

i guess i know that they just edit it now lol
tbh I thought the same thing

Yeah! I guess it's a lazy way to get good color palettes.

I might just be being stupid, but what exactly is the difference between color themes and palettes?

okay so a color palette is a set of colors you lay out so you can get them later

like when youre painting, right? you have the palette. you lay out all your colors beforehand so you can get them easily later

the "color theme" (this is just what i call it) is when all of your colors have the same tint sort of? like these skins!: https://www.planetminecraft.com/skin/chatie-l-paradise/

this one has a green color theme, but of course the theme on this is really intense

and, this one's kind of a bad example but i can't find too many skins with an easily apparent color theme:

https://www.planetminecraft.com/skin/chatie-l-persona/

this one has a dark, blue, purple type of color theme. the whole skin just kind of blends in together (but not literally, you can see the separate clothes and stuff of course lmho)

that was an awful example but i hoped i explained it well enough lmho

edit: OKAY SO LIKE THE PICTURE TO THIS BLOG, RIGHT

THE "AFTER" PICTURE HAS A MORE YELLOW-Y COLOR THEME/TINT

OK BYE

Ah, understood. Even after skinning for over 6 years I'm still a bit slow with the terminology haha.
Thanks for the explanation!

you can actually do the same thing... in MCSkin3D lol

what you do, is you get the brush tool and choose what light color you want to overlay it with. you change the opacity of it (the number is like A: 255), and you make the brush size bigger, and hold down and go over the whole thing !!!

Oh, yes! Though, this trick (in my opinion) gives it a bit more "shine" if you know what I mean.
