Tutorial: How to Make Great Skins by Blender

I saw many amazing skins on various Minecraft Skin pages, solely by Blender! I PMed him about his strategy for making great skins, and this is what he said!

So my technique for making skins involve 2 image editing programs:

The first one is Gimp. It’s like a simpler and more direct Photoshop that is easy to use. It also comes with some cool effects like lens-flare, and colorize.


The second is SkinEdit. It allows you to create minecraft skins without the guessing. It labels the front, back, legs, the arms (extremely useful), and it has a real-time character in the corner with your skin!

(both of these are free btw)
So I get the shapes and general colors in SkinEdit, then i open it up in Gimp and do all the shading. I will go back and forth many times before it starts to take shape. One of the things i Have learned is that even if it looks bad at first, and you are thinking of restarting, keep working on it because it wont look good in the beginning.
