1. Create a Minecraft MOB Skin for the theme

Mythical Creatures
Ancient Mythology had many terrifying and fascinating imaginary creatures, and now it's time to portray them in Minecraft. Create a mob skin that depicts a monster or creature of ancient legends and lore.

Please use only mythical creatures that real human cultures believed in at some point in history. Use the title and description to let everyone know what mythical creature your skin is based on. There are many to choose from!

Entries must be default resolution.
To keep things fair, we limit the resolution of entries to 1x (Default). HD Skins allow a greater level of detail than the default resolution and an unfair advantage. You may enter a default resolution skin and link viewers to an HD version. However, the version that Judges will rate is the default resolution.

2. Skins must be new and made for this contest.

We do not and have never accepted any copies or re-posts in our contests, nor do we accept skins created before the contest's announcement date.

Do not submit copies, or paint-overs, of default textures from the minecraft.jar

Do not submit copies, or paint-overs, of skins found in any existing texture packs or mods, even if you are the original author.

Do not submit existing member submissions, from this site or others. This includes your own galleries.

Give us something new and fresh, please!

3. Skins must be valid, usable Mob skins.

This is a contest for Mob skins only. Please do not submit player skins or objects like trident, bed, bobber, etc. You won't be able to but we don't want you wasting any time!

4. Submit something you made, entirely by yourself.

Skins that are obvious remixes, recolors, or blatant copies of other people's work are not acceptable. Your entry will be deleted, and you will be disqualified from the contest if you are found to be submitting stolen work.

Using skin-making tools or apps such is not the same as making a skin yourself. Keep in mind also that, when using those applications, you are copying from a library of 'parts'. Several of those 'parts' were taken from talented skinners without their consent, and as such, skins containing those parts are considered stolen art. Those entries will be disqualified, and deleted from your account.

5. One entry per person.

Each user will only be permitted to submit one skin for this contest.

You may edit your entry for as long as the contest submission period is open. If you decide to change your submission at any point, you are free to do so. However, be warned that deleting your original entry may cause errors and make it impossible for you to re-enter the contest. Instead, you should use the "update submission" button on your active submission, then save the new file over your old one. Remember to change the submission title and description if necessary!

6. The contest will run for about three weeks.

Post dates must be made after today's date, September 4th, 2020 @ 5:00 PM EST. The contest will end about two weeks from today, on September 22nd, 2020 @ 12:00 PM EST Skins submitted after this date will not be accepted.
After this time the contest will be put into a review period of three days before we move into the judging stage.

7. Take your time, and make it fun!

Give your skin some character! Give them some defining characteristics. Make it unique and awesome!

We've always scored higher for submissions that include more thought and creativity. Write a bit about the history behind your character and we'll all learn more. You don't have to put something up right away. Take your time!

If you're unsure if your idea will fit with the theme or have any other concerns feel free to contact our list of judges below they should be able to help you, as well as many of the site moderators.

Do not rush yourself to get something in immediately. This contest is not a random drawing - the submissions are judged by a panel of long-standing members with a great deal of experience in making Minecraft skins. It will not help your chances at winning if you submit anything less than fantastic, so take your time.

Should you chose to rush, remember that you are able to update your submission as many times as you want before the final close date of September 22nd, 2020 @ 12:00 PM EST.

If you do not know how to make skins, or have an idea but have never attempted it before, here are a few things you should know.

1. Skins must be saved as a .PNG file. No other file format will function properly.

2. The most popular tools for editing Minecraft Skins are:



We're biased but must recommend using: PMCSkin3D : Free Advanced Minecraft Skin Editor!

or MCSkinEdit, an application developed by a user named Swedman. You can download it from the official forum post, here.

You may wish to use a more advanced editor for certain effects. GIMP and Paint.net are free applications that will give you access to better tools for editing.

3. If you need help or want some tips for making nice skins, many of our top skinners have made tutorials outlining the processes and techniques they use for skinning. Check out these ones by Roobus and Leostereo
