Hello Planet of Minecrafters.

With the release of Minecraft Mob Skins on PMC, we have the opportunity to host skinning contests & events for a wide variety of models not just the player model anymore. This thread will be a place to share & discuss ideas for potential mob skin contests. We're open to all suggestions.

PMCSkin3D supports over 60 mob models! While ideally we'll have themes that can accept all models, we COULD have ideas that limit the models depending on what's appropriate for the contest/theme. The models vary in topic and complexity from a simple Fishing Bobber to the Ender Dragon. Since contests typically compare quality & creativity of participants, some mob contest ideas might benefit from limiting the accepted models.

  • Please post ONE idea per reply.
    Feel free to post multiple but for the sake of discussion and emeralds going towards a specific idea, one idea per post will clarify what were talking about.
  • Your ideas will be credited to you in the poll options as well as if it becomes an actual contest/event.
  • Don't be afraid to pitch your idea. We don't really know what will make a good mob skin contest / event and want a wide variety of options.

EXAMPLE #1:
Title: Farm Animals
Description:
Old MacSteve had a villager farm and on his farm he had a pig. With pixels placed here and pixels placed there. It can be fun to diverge from the usual song, dance and farm animals. Let's create custom livestock and breath new life into our farms in Minecraft.
Type: Event ( max 5 entries)
Models: Pig, Cow, Sheep, Chicken & Horse

EXAMPLE #2:
Title: Steampunk Park
Description:
Choose any mob and create a steam punk rendition of it. Imagine the mob is a machine powered by steam with clockwork greased with beard oil.
Type: Event ( max 5 entries )
Models: Any

First mob skin theme poll is live!
If your idea wasn't included this time, it may still appear on a future poll. We selected some of the top rated themes while also maintaining a decent variety of topics. We don't mind cycling out the poll options more often than not, so if/when a great idea slaps you in the face, post it here!

I tried this and the buggers have only one leg texture so you cannot give them pants. 😭
So there went my idea of the fancy pig texture.

Regardless, YES! Pigs contest. 😁
