Hello

As i searched here for Angry Birds - skins, i found some cool effects:
The head of the "Steve"-figure is the whole bird and the body, arms and legs are invisible.
that makes that little bird hovering in a fixed hight above the ground

how did they do that?

Our skin previewer supports full transparency for viewing purposes.

Minecraft does not. Transparent parts appear black in-game.

What file type are you trying to upload? If it's not a PNG, then I'd imagine that's why.

it´s a PNG, i made with GIMP.
I saw the parts black in the four-sides-preview, that already appears in the "Create Submission"-page.
So i canceled the upload.

How did they make this:

Put a landscape in the background of the animated preview, and you see, the body is invisible and not just colored like the light blue image-background.

It’s an illusion. They use the same color of blue as on the backgrounds of the skin to make it seem as if there is blank space in that area.

i also see in the 3d-preview at the left, that the body is invisible.
i can turn around the model and see the whole bottom of the head.
And i can change the background there and still see the whole background, where the body has to be.
Here is a sample for that:

My buddy was doing the same thing back when it was still not accepted to have any invis parts. He was just using an android app on his phone.

either they painted the rest of the body the same as the background or they used a skin editor on another site

I looked around on the skin-pages here on the site, where i can download them or generate papercraft-sheets.

i think, skin-editor was useh, because i played around with the 3d-model on the page of that skin and saw the whole bottom of the head.

now i tried the minecraft skin editor with the pumpkin-icon.
Bur the result is a black body....

they probably used another site like this one https://www.minecraftskins.com/skin-editor/ this one allows you to not have any body parts you don't want
