    Hello Members of this group and non-members,

    Are you ready to be one of the first people to be a part of an amazing team that puts out a skinning newsletter?

    Some time ago I mentioned maybe doing a newsletter. Some people seemed interested. The newsletter will be skinning themed. And I was hoping to put one out once a week. I thought it would be better to have a team of people to work together to make it. Non-group members are welcome to be a part of it as well!

    The possible positions:

    πŸŸͺ Newsletter Head (Keeps everything on track and organizes it. Also posts the newsletter and has it as an editable draft before.)

    πŸŸͺ Newsletter Collector (Collects all the trending skins and adds them to the newsletter, also adds the featured skin. The featured skin would be chosen randomly from a list of submitted skins. You could make a form (like this one) where they would be submitted.)

    πŸŸͺ Newsletter Contest Collector (Keeps track of all contests going on and adds a table of them to the newsletter. The featured contest would be just like the featured skin. The banner and a short paragraph would also be need there. That could be collected with a form (like this one) as well.)

    πŸŸͺ Newsletter Writer (Writes the articles, anyone could do it. The articles can be about anything skinning related. No off topic articles unless approved by SouthDakotaGirl and the Newsletter Head)

    Apply Now!
    Results to the applications will be decided next Saturday. And the first issue will probably be the Saturday after that.

    Here's some aspects that will be in the newsletter:
    πŸŸͺ The trending skins from each category for the week.
    πŸŸͺ All the skinning event/contest in table that would be updated every week.
    πŸŸͺ Skinner of the week. We would find a skinner and interview them.
    πŸŸͺ Featured skinning events and skins. You could submit one of your skins or a event to have it feature in the newsletter.
    πŸŸͺ Group activities. It will include what this group and maybe what other skinning groups have been up to that week.
    πŸŸͺ Hopefully an article written by a skinner each week. Could be anything skinning related.

    More about submitting skins and events to be featured will be decided once the newsletter team is together. Same with having articles by skinners.

      Heyo! I see that everything is kinda quiet in here, so I had an idea... Let's have a contest to see who can make the best use of the primary colors! Pick yellow, blue, or red, then make a skin using only shades and tones of that color! May the best skinner win! Please note that is just for fun and is not mandatory, but I can't wait to see what you guys come up with! XD

      A joke application for the newsletter witters role

      Greatest new skin tactic
      You may say but that's not new, it's been around for years
      But you're wrong you see, It's not well known some may call it shady
      I (because there's no one else here with me) interviewed this is what they had to say
      "I did whatever because why not "
      Great isn't it well

      Ooooo, using this! :)
      Herobrine_2143 said 2022-09-21 13:12:33
      Idk if this does something but I came up with my own little trick that to me it looks good for shading, when I want to try to have multiple shades and can't find or I'm too lazy to find the right shade through hue-shifting, I use opacity in both colors. What I mean is that if I have green I would just go for the darkest hue-shift color of green and then decrease the opacity to the brightest area, sometimes I do the opposite, so is like the brightest green (base color that I'm using, not brightest) with 75% opacity until reaching lowest, I play around with it to see how good it looks and I go with it, most of my skins are like that.

    We need more people working on this.

    Hello Shady Skinners,

    So I was thinking what skin we should do together and it hit me. We should make fan skins of Cyprezz and PMC. It's something simple and something we all know about.

    How to participate:
    You will pick a part and edit your name next to it. You pick one part from either the PMC or the Cyprezz skin. You work on it and when it is finished add it on this description next to the part you did.


    Head: Minibabu / My part

    Body: Herobrine_2143 | My part

    Left arm: SouthDakotaGirl (My part)

    Right arm: MoonAstraea | (My part)

    Left leg:

    Right leg:

    I suggest looking at pictures and concept images of robots when working on your part of the Cyprezz skin.



    Body: inzanely | my part: [ i tried to go for a more casual look with a cropped jacket while also incorporating the pmc colors, also added the beginnings of a robotic arm because i thought it'd look nice ]

    Left arm: (has been done by DaniAdler)

    Right arm: CrescentLune

    Left leg:

    Right leg:

    if your having trouble picking just know that the body is probably the hardest.

    Remember you don't have to make your part exactly like their characters. Take some creative liberties. Come up with some ideas or designs and have fun with it. The goal is to make two skins that have a mosaic of different styles, ideas and colors.

    If you need some one on one help just PM me I'm willing to help you through designing your part, shading and making it in look the way you want it.

    Deadline: February 10th (now extended to march)

    This is the deadline for each of your parts.

    It's a 64x64 skin. Do them both as Steve format (as it's easier to convert to Alex if need be).

    Also I (South) will be the one to edit the skin parts together. and you have been given permission to edit this widget. Please only edit it for what I have said.

    If you have any comments or questions add them below here by editing this. Remember to include your username.
