Thank you all long time subs and all new subs!

A few months ago, a sub suggested I make a hummingbird skin. I thought the idea was interesting but probably not possible. I made a quick frontal view in under 5 minutes and then gave up on the idea because looked like it would be really complicated and people wouldn't recognize it as a hummingbird. I found the quick sketch the other day and decided that I would try making the skin using what I had learned in the interim. Here is the original quick sketch and the finished ruby throated hummingbird after about 10 hours of work. I am happy with the finished product, although I couldn't come up with a good way to make the long beak.

Oops, flubbed the inside of the wing. Fixed the shading there and added red pixels to the corners on the underside of the head.

Hi Radrobin25 - I no longer do requests. I get too many and I don't have time to make them. I will add it to my list of suggested skins but no promises that I will get to it.

Thanks, I tried to capture the idea of a hummingbird. I was pretty limited on options for the wings.

A herobrine hummingbird is much scarier. All those minecraft flowers better watch out!

What animation or thing do you use to make your skins look like they do?

I just work with skincraft. It has no tools. I would use something else if my computer supported it. I do all my work based on what looks good to my eye. It is slow, pixel-by-pixel work.

how do you make epic skins in mcskin3d?

I can't help you with that - I'm a mac user and work with skincraft on my browser. If you check the forums and chat room you can find a skinner who can give you tips for mcskin3d

Woah nice work! Still using Skincraft?

Yep, still using skincraft. Not the greatest app but I know it well now. Only drawback I have trouble with still is the inverted pieces on the bottom of the head, arms, and legs. Well, that and not being able to see between the arm and the body until the skin is in motion in another viewer.

If you have Windows then you could try McSkin3D it's really good, makes my skins go up a few notches :P If you have Mac then just keep up the good work!

Yep that's why girls like the skin, it refers to a non fighting girl. Besides jumping birds don't hurt things
