I just wanted to offer my services as a skin artist. Hopefully some of you will like my style. :smile.gif: I think my specialty would be in female skins, but I would be willing to give male skins a try. Hopefully one day Notch will implement female voices and the option to select your gender, but for now all we have is skins. :smile.gif:
The skins I like to make are clean and crisp. I add in as much detail as I can, with a lot of shading done by hand with hand-picked colors. I am not particularly fond of skins using the noise effect, though I will provide a noise version of a skin on request if you can't do it yourself.
Skins I have made and completed requests will be in the post just after this one.
Also, please consider giving any amount of money as a donation if you request a skin, or especially for multiple skins. I am having a very hard time finding a job, and times are really hard in my house. I spend the majority of my time looking for jobs, but I do allow myself a little bit of free time to relax and keep myself from losing my sanity. One of the things I love is Minecraft, and I really love making skins. I offer my services because of that love for it. PM me for my paypal address if you would like to help out; anything is appreciated.
When requesting a skin, please keep in mind:
[*:1kxa99bo]Be polite and respectful of my time and effort.
[*:1kxa99bo]I WILL be posting the requested skin publicly for anyone to use. Share the love. :smile.gif:
[*:1kxa99bo]Mostly female characters, but don't be afraid to ask for a male skin!
[*:1kxa99bo]Don't request more than one skin at a time.
[*:1kxa99bo]You may request more than one skin, but let me finish the first request.
[*:1kxa99bo]Give as much detail as you possibly can, or better yet:
[*:1kxa99bo]Give me pictures for reference. (Keep in mind: front, back, and full body) Or:
[*:1kxa99bo]Provide the name and source of the character instead.
[*:1kxa99bo]Remember, arms, as well as legs, are mirror images of each other and cannot be different.
[*:1kxa99bo]Don't submit my skins to any skin websites. This is my personal preference.
[*:1kxa99bo]Leave at least one crescent-moon on the PNG image (invisible in-game), or at least credit me, Moonie!
[*:1kxa99bo]Don't make minor edits or recolors and then claim it as your own work somewhere else.
[*:1kxa99bo]I don't mind if you edit the skin for your own personal usage.
[*:1kxa99bo]I am a nice person and won't do anything crazy or drastic, but please be nice in return. :smile.gif:
Regarding the public only skin rule:
This will mostly apply for skins that are of public characters, such as from games, Anime, cartoons, comics, celebrities, etc. I feel that there's not much personal about these skins, so there shouldn't be any reason the skin can't be usable by anyone. I'm sorry if you have a problem with this, but I think this is fair, considering other people might request the same thing as you.
My one exception to this rule is if you are wanting a more personal skin, such as one based off an original character you created or a skin of yourself, or anything like that. I understand wanting to have it private, seeing as my usual skin is a personal one. Do keep in mind that if anyone knows your Minecraft name or can guess it, your skin can currently be grabbed by anyone. Hopefully notch will fix this, but for now, I'm just letting you know upfront that that's how it is.
Please PM me about the skin you want and I will keep it between us. All other rules/suggestions apply. I would appreciate a comment left in the thread afterward, though, and maybe even a donation. :smile.gif:
I have made it very easy to apply a skin to your minecraft account. Just click on the preview image for the skin of your choice. You will automatically be taken to minecraft.net and, if you're logged in, you will be asked if you want to change your skin. It's as simple as that! :smile.gif:
I will also display the small PNG that acts as your skin below the preview if you would like to save it. :smile.gif:
Manual Instructions: [*:386pq64x]Right-click the image and select Save Image As...(or whatever your computer says)
[*:386pq64x]Select a location/folder on your computer to save it, anywhere you like, and save it.
[*:386pq64x]Go to www.minecraft.net and Log in.
[*:386pq64x]Click on 'Profile', which is currently at the top of the Minecraft home page.
[*:386pq64x]Click the 'Browse' button. Now find and select the PNG image you saved earlier.
[*:386pq64x]Click on the 'Upload image' button, and you're all done! :smile.gif:

[*:386pq64x]IN PROGRESS:Sephiroth I just wanted to let everyone know that no, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, and yes, I am still intending to work on skins.

I will be getting back to skinning and my normal routine now, and I hope everyone who's been waiting can forgive me. Life brings many unexpected things, and it decided to bring it all down on me this week.
Please expect some progress soon!
Here's an in progress shot of Sephiroth, just so you know I am working on him. Subject to change! :smile.gif:

You people are killing me with all these skins with primarily black clothing...XD
Thank you for the information, I'm sure they appreciate it. :smile.gif:
I still plan to fill the requests asked of me. Maybe people will like my style, and I would like to give the skins a try. I don't mean this as rude as it might come across via text, but just because someone else has made a skin doesn't mean anyone else can't make it, too, especially if it's a popular video game character.
However, if Ikin would prefer, he could get that skin off the website. I went to have a look for myself and there were quite a few that looked like the skin he was after. Other people could probably do that particular style of skin better than I could (war/combat outfits and such). I will PM him about it to make sure he knows and see what he wants.
hey if your interested, pm me and we can work together and cover more skin requests, I lack abit on females and you seem to specialize in it, I can do a male version and you can place the female touch. Pm me if your interested, My thread is lurking around the first/second page XD
We can also work on the same sprite and we can make a best version from both of our edits
I can has male version of the blue girl you posted?
It would be much appreciated<3
I can certainly give it a try. I had an idea for it, so I went to look and see if anyone else has done it. To my surprise, it exists--at least in fan artwork! :tongue.gif: And the design is not too different from what I was thinking. Would you like the flame on his eye to be blue just like hers? Or would you like it another color, like red? It would make him more distinct from her. Let me know! :smile.gif:
Quote from vobilli »
Someone has already requested Yako Katsuragi, so for my request could you make Yako Katsuragi with a Jayne hat (Jayne Cobb from Firefly)?
Oh, god, I LOVE Firefly! :biggrin.gif: So I will be more than happy to do it!
