The workshop section of the Planet Minecraft forums is a place where you can offer or request free content creation.

You can offer or request; builds, skins, textures, renders, graphics, animations, art, banners and more! Just keep in mind that on this site, any kind of commercial advertisement and selling is prohibited. See section 3.1 of the rules.

❓ Tips for when you request content:
  • Mention what you're requesting in your title. If your title is "request" or "please help" then creators will be less likely to look at your thread. Try a title like "Requesting drawing of my original character." or "Request: Spooky castle server spawn build."
  • Include a clear description of what you're looking for. Be as precise as possible because it is not easy for creators to work with a vague description. Reference images are always good to add in (use the insert/edit media button and use an image URL). If you simply put "PM me for more info" then creators are unlikely to contact you, because they have no clue what they're signing up for.
  • Be polite in your request. "I need x" sounds nowhere near as nice as "Could someone please make x".
  • Before you post a new thread, look for offering threads first. Somebody might be offering just the service you're looking for. So browse the list of threads on the workshop before you create a new thread.

🎁 Tips for when you offer content:
  • Mention what you're offering in your title. "Requests" is not a good title, since people won't know if you're offering or requesting something. "Taking requests" is vague too, requests for what? Try a title like "Offering custom server spawn builds." or "Skin shop for human skins.".
  • Make sure you have some examples of your work, so that people who request will have an indication of what they can expect you to make for them.
  • Give a clear indication of how much time you might take to finish a request. This prevents people from getting impatient or looking elsewhere. Offering a limited amount of slots might help, so that you don't get flooded with a lot of requests at the same time.
  • Set some rules and guidelines. Make it very clear what you will and will not create. Perhaps make a standard form, or give requesters some tips (like the ones above) on how to submit a clear request.
  • Keep an eye out for request threads on the workshop. Someone may have requested just the thing you're offering. It would be great if you could help them.

Strange that all this needs to be restated, but the continuing flow of new folks seems to make that desirable…

Well put :>:
