1. Create a Minecraft Skin for the theme: RPG Adventures!

Come closer. Yea you! Come, I have a question for you. Care to join me and my pals here on an adventure? You look like someone who could handle a monster or two. We will travel to far away cities, walk atop vast mountain-ranges, venture into the deepest places of the earth, aid people who are in need, slay those who stand in our way of glory, and... well, who knows? Maybe find ourselves some treasure, or save a village from being plagued by a huge three-headed ogre!? What say you hero? Are you up for an adventure!?

For this contest, design an Action RPG character for an adventure! Be it from an existing Action RPG or an OC you made to fit in the universe of that RPG! Tell us what adventures this character might pop up in, maybe it's a hero destined to fight evil, maybe it's a quest NPC, or perhaps a monster guarding treasure or ancient artifacts? And if you want to go further, you could even possibly add a character sheet with attributes, abilities and equipment!

Remember to make it CLEAR with the appearance of your skin, that it fits within an Action RPG.

Here are some suggestive Action RPG universes to go from but feel free to roll your own.

D&D (Dungeons & Dragons)




Chrono Trigger

The Elder Scrolls


The Witcher

Legend Of Zelda

Warhammer Fantasy

Dragon Age

Mass Effect



Secret of Mana

Want to make a character sheet but don't know how? We got you covered! Here's a shake 'n bake character sheet for you, to help you define the most fantastic character or beast you can imagine for an Action RPG:

Role Playing Game
What role-playing game is your character from. Beyond the title, feel free to describe the world / universe.

Character Backstory
Add your character's story or role in the game. Where their from, what drives them to adventure, where their external traits and internal battles come from, etc.

Character Abilities
Add any abilities, skills or spells that your character or monster might possess. Examples could be "Lock-picking", "Devastating Blow", "Fireball", "Summon Ghoul", or a more passive ability, such as "Acrobatic Movement" or something unusual like
they can "See Dead People". Go wild!

Character Equipment
Add any equipment that your character carries or wields.

Character Attributes

Attributes quantify your character's qualities. You character may have a Primary attribute that often influences their class / destiny / role. Value scales differ depending on the game & gear equipped but traditionally attributes range from 0-100.

Traditional RPG attributes include:

- A measure of character physical power and determines how hard they hit, what they can wield and how much they can carry.

Stamina - A measure of how sturdy a character is. Gives character more hit points, less fatigue, resistance to physical attacks.

Intelligence - A measure of magical prowess and knowledge. Gives the character clarity and increased learning.

Dexterity - A measure of speed and agile movement. Helps with dodging, skillful movements or perhaps sneaking around.

Charisma - A measure of social skills. Can influence dialog directions, shop prices, potentially negate combat with players / enemies.

Luck - A measure of a character's luckiness. Might influence anything from loot drops, types of encounters, chance to critical hit and other chance related events.

+ Add attributes - Your character may need alternative attributes to adequately describe their qualities.

Example attribute table for a "Frontline Fighter" character:

+ Additional attributes that define your character

NOTE: Filling out a sheet is optional BUT it will increase your chances of impressing the judges while entertaining yourself and the world around you.

We are introducing a 3rd judging criteria score value for this and all future skin contests.

Thematic Relevancy : How well your entry represents the contest theme.

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 - This means no Steve skins, zombie skins, pigman skins, Creeper skins, or Enderman skins are permitted!

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 character skins.

This is a contest for player skins only. Please do not submit mob skins, villager skins, or anything but the format expected for the player model.
Note that as of 1.8 skins are allowed to have transparencies on the second layer, skins with transparencies on the first layer will be disqualified.

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, January 7th, 2020 @ 12:00 PM EST. The contest will end about two weeks from today, on January 27th, 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. Remember, you have two weeks to do this. 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 January 27th, 2020 @ 12:00 PM EST.


Submit a skin as you would normally, but check the box indicating that your skin is for the contest.

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
