Not very good in the pmc 2d previewer, but honestly, I don't really care; this was not made to be good in the pmc 2d previewer, but rather to be pretty accurate of myself. My preview does it more justice:

Self-portrait Minecraft Skin

oh well, it is what it is, I still want this posted for a few reasons.

  1. I want to show off a hyper-coloured approach to a "realistic skin"
  2. It was fun to make and if I like the outcome I am always going to post it
  3. The beard shading was actually so so so much fun to do and I think it really captures it well; being grown out but not being big.
  4. The shirt shading uses some cool approaches for the buttoning up part that makes for some cool depth and detail that I want to show off
  5. The pants use some cool switching between greys, reds and yellows to ensure the colouring is akin to my real life reference.
  6. The colouring overall I just find cool - try removing the overlay and see how big of a difference that makes too

Ommissions and changes that would make this more "realistic":
  1. Facial ratios: Skins are too wide in their face to get the correct shape. Arguably you'd modify the chin a bit too, to accomodate more detail, but it is what it is.
  2. Ears should be further back, if this was to be realistic and this is super obvious if you do a side-profile. While this is pretty close to the right position, I'd argue a pixel further back would be more realistic, even if worse looking.
  3. Eyes could be so called "moving eyes" and while this approach is easy and has been known for like 10 years, it's not something I think looks good on a skin and therefore I avoided it. It's a super easy modification however.
  4. Arguably the boots should have less contrast, although I think this is pretty good
  5. Arguably my eye tone is more grey - the reason why the iris is darker is to combine the colours of the iris/lens into one pixel space, which imo works pretty well.
  6. I could've added glasses, but didn't care to.

No, I am not going to link a picture of myself for reference, and neither should you if you have one. I am not interested in you sharing personal stuff on this site, thank you. The skin will have no tags also. Yes, this is a self-portrait.
