ο»ΏOmg I got popreel because all my friends gave me diamonds and complimented my work. Sorry but I am a bit fed up.

1. Stop copying everyone else.
2. Take on board feedback, ASK people how you can make something better
3. Stop listening to your friends they're only gonna tell you what you want to hear
4. STOP, and I mean STOP with the silly fonts maybe for your name but not the whole thing.
5. Stop spending all your time making pretty neon hair, and then not shading the rest of the skin
6. Use more than two tones
7. Stop borrowing colours off of eachother or you'll never learn to make them
8. stop using complete gray and then just adding white/black
9. stop only making girls

This is going to offend someone/some of you. But I speak on behalf of all the creative and original skinners who can no longer get onto popreel nowadays - despite spending maybe 3+ hours on their work.

I'm not speaking to every skinner on the reel there's a lot there that I like, this, this, and this are all real nice.

To quote giraffe 'at this point im surprised one of the categories when
uploading a skin isnt "basic" .' (cute alice skin btw giraffe)

But yeah please, just stop being lazy.

I think the older skinning community are unnecessarily distasteful to the more common style of skins nowadays. Ironically a few years ago all we saw on the pop reel were similar skins, usually limited palettes or blended skins, and honestly it's ridiculous to try and control the content people want to make. They aren't bad skins, they're artistic and the unrealistic neon hair just adds to the palette. Older skinners are being discriminatory to the newer 'teen skinners', and they just complain about it rather than actually trying to be appreciative. Teen skins are popular, and that's why they dominate the popular reel, majority of the people on this website like them and you can't change that, it's not them that have to learn.

Agree. There's a lot of demand for them and a lot of teenagers use them. They're naturally going to be really popular. They generally do require some level of effort, too. Just because they're not an amorphous mass of experimental colors that is designed to represent the ultimate folly of humanity doesn't make them some sort of terrible, ultimate evil. They're useful. Look at the downloads on the average teen skin on the pop reel that's only been up for a few days. They're often pretty high. Compare them to official contest winners which are often very creative and unique, if a bit esoteric. They're generally well-received, but have less downloads. The average user doesn't need to use a unique skin with an interesting story. Teen skins have a massive "consumer base," if you'll excuse the flowery language.


Beyond that, there aren't a lot of unique and interesting skins being produced in comparison. When they are, though, they tend to do pretty well for themselves and receive similar support, if less downloads. Skins of existing characters specifically tend to do very well.


Ultimately, I feel people are being way, way too sophomoric over pixel avatars for a game. It's quite possibly one of the silliest things to get upset about. I know it's art, and thus, work, but getting angry over someone else's online pixels getting more attention just looks silly. If they want the attention, I don't understand why they don't try to be more approachable. So many times their personalities are just really, really hostile towards THE TEEN SKINNERS. To the people that like such skins, I'd imagine they don't seem like the sort of people they'd like to support. Being all red alaea over pixels is just not an attractive attitude.

The problem is that only the popular skinners get popreel, unless a beginners work is really good. The reason this exceptionally terrible skin got onto the popreel was because you are a well-known skinner. But I appreciate your advice and you make a pretty good point

hm, I have a bit of a mixed opinion on this.
Of course flat out copying without giving credit or asking permission is terrible and should stop, but I don't think occasionally taking inspiration from other people is a bad thing. It can be a long and difficult process to find your style (I'm still going through it now and I've been making skins for a year and a half) and sometimes you just gotta experiment.
As for taking feedback, yes if someone *politely* tells you what they think you could change about your skin you should maybe consider taking it on board, but it's not compulsory at all. They're just telling you what THEY think you could do to improve, you don't HAVE to do it. Especially if you're comfortable and happy with your style. As long as you're uploading original stuff that you're happy with, that's all that really matters in the long run.
I think the friend thing varies from person to person - personally, the majority of my friends, if asked for opinions on something I'd made, would give me 100% honest and genuine feedback. If they thought something looked off or whatever, they would point it out.
I don't think fonts matter. I mean, you clicked on the skin to see the skin. Why should it matter what font the title's in?
I agree with the hair thing. it can look odd if not done correctly.
"Borrowing" colours? This is an odd one that I've seen people complain about many times. A colour cannot be claimed by someone. It is free for anyone to use. I'm not quite sure what you mean by this.
Honestly I like white, grey and black. They look good together in my opinion. I think that's another thing that really varies from person to person.
As for making girls, I somewhat agree. But for me, personally, there are so many more options on a female skin than on a male skin. Maybe I've just not experimented enough. I'll consider that.
The thing is, if you're making content that the majority don't want to see, then you're not gonna get popreel. I, personally, really like your work, however there are a lot of younger people out there who are just looking for a simple teen skin and aren't really bothered with the complicated stuff. It really sucks, but if you wanna get somewhere on a website for a game targeting like 6-12 year olds, that's what you gotta do because that's what the majority want to see.
As for the last bit, some people really are doing the best they can. They're not all as experienced as the older skinners such as you, they haven't had that time to properly develop a style and that's OK.
Idk. I'm not trying to be rude or offensive in case I come off that way, just expressing my opinion on the matter. I'd love to have a more in-depth discussion about it! (and sorry for the paragraph oOps)

The colour thing confuses everyone so I should explain aha

Yeah no one can claim colours that's very true, but if I spend like 15-20 minutes mixing my colours from scratch I do not want anyone taking them. I do not want to see someone just lift the colours from my skins and put it onto another. That's what I meant by that.

(I read all your comment btw but I probs wont address all but I'll try?)

Another thing is I'm not attacking people who are proud of their work or pleased with it. But when I see a skin that's had all the work put into the hair and nothing else, I can tell they've barely tried at all, they've just been lazy. Also when people post skins titled like 'ooo ugly skin I made' it's the equivalent of posting a selfie and writing 'I'm so ugly' it's attention seeking and it shouldn't have been posted at all - why ARE people posting stuff they don't even like themselves, I find that so distressing.

And yeah people don't have to take feedback but I feel like people are being... stagnant? Like I haven't seen people trying to improve (I mean I love art so this bugs me a lot) I think it's important to look at the opinions of people who don't necessarily like ur style of work (this is hard for me to explain bear with)

Say one makes teen skins for example, likely all their subs are teen skin fans. AND this is fine, it's absolutely ok to make these types of skins I'm not saying it's not. BUT there are other people on this site, that don;t necessarily like that, and they made have a different view on that, and they may be able to offer criticism that's extremely valuable, as they're able to spot stuff that fans won't.

Also, there are 12+ of these teen skinners right? All doing the same thing as one another (almost) there's some exceptions I know that, and these 12+ skinners are all posting 1-2 skins every day. They're easier to make, evreyone knows that, there's only one way to make cardigans and jeans it's something easy that can be made daily - but that means that all the other style skinners just couldn't keep up, those making skins weekly just fell out of being noticed, so they kind of just left I guess. And when new skinners making something other than teen skins ty to join, they find it hard because their work kind of dissolves.

Umm as for the fonts, some have found using letters from other languages a little annoying as it's their language not a decoration, and also it's hard to read, and not at all necessary tbh, I don't mind seeing emojis tho.

And tbh yeah if teen skins is what the majority of people want now then I feel like I might as well just leave for good tbh - but thanks for ur comment it's nice to hear your thoughts

I see. Thank you for addressing the colour thing. I still personally wouldn't mind if someone took the same colours I used in a skin and used them in their own way - but each to their own!

I must say I, personally, find hair shading a lot easier than clothing and skin shading. As you could tell by my account, my clothing shading is all over the place and I seem to notice that with a lot of people who haven't quite developed their style yet.
But I do agree that people blatantly just posting for attention seeking is annoying.

The thing is is that everyone will always have different opinions - It's good to take on board criticism occasionally, sure, but where do you draw the line? If you're always changing what people don't like or think you could improve about a skin, it's too easy for all the fun to go out of it completely and you're no longer doing it for yourself, but more to pander to others. I hope that makes sense.

That makes sense - using someone's language for decoration really isn't great. But if it's just fancy cursive text (like the title of this skin) I don't think it's an issue.

Well, you never know. You shouldn't leave just because the majority want something else right now, you never know when a new leaf will be turned and your time to shine arrives.
Honestly I think the most important thing is that you like what you're making and you're having fun making it. I think that if you're posting stuff you're not happy with just for attention then that's not good! It is nice to get recognition I'll admit, but I'd rather upload something that I had fun making and that I, personally, love the look of and not get any diamonds than upload something totally fake that I, personally, hate and get a ton of diamonds.
I really hope all this is making sense.

No problem at all - thank you for taking time to respond!

When you totally feel guilty of being a girl teen skinner...

I guess I agree, knowing that about 3 or less over 19 skins on the popreel are non teen skins yes, I just counted, so I feel like the popreel should be more diverse, like 2 of human skins, 2 of robots, 2 of animals, or so, and it should be changed more frequently too

Totally agree with all of this. I miss seeing all the amazing original skins, the commuity has become so boring and basic. Thank you for saying this but I have my doubts the community will change. There will always be new creator just wanting to get "famous" and "popular" and making basic teen skins seem to be a fast way to do that.

but this is true, my skins lack originality and are the basic teen genre

I lowkey dislike most of the skins I make but, people are somehow impressed with them so I continue to make skins with virtually the originality of a rock, so I understand your frustration. Case closed, I am a bad skinner and human being lol

1. Stop copying everyone else. Honestly, this is so true.
2. Take on board feedback, ASK people how you can make something better. Also true.
3. Stop listening to your friends they're only gonna tell you what you want to hear Friends don't even know about this account.
4. STOP, and I mean STOP with the silly fonts maybe for your name but not the whole thing. OMG YOU ARE SO RIGHT THOUGH
5. Stop spending all your time making pretty neon hair, and then not shading the rest of the skin I agree, if the hair is the only thing you wanna do, then just make bases.
6. Use more than two tones (Also put actual effort in your work)
7. Stop borrowing colours off of eachother or you'll never learn to make them Honestly, this kind of seems like a fake problem because nobody really... owns colors. I get what you mean though.
8. stop using complete gray and then just adding white/black No idea what this means.
9. stop only making girls For me, this is so correct. But the reason I only make girls is because I honestly don't enjoy making boys, and I'm not gonna make something I don't enjoy.

I really can't say anything, because:
A) I just started making skins
B) I suck
