I was horrified at how terrible the "Bikini-Girl" Minecraft skins were so I had a go at my own so I can work out if there's any excuse why they're so terrible.

(Can you find the creeper?)

Here is the skin's png file:

Here's a foxy one based on the source image:

And here's an instant fox layer for instant fox ears and tail!

So, what is wrong with the terrible skins? The bikini briefs are half-way down the poor character's legs! Legs are not where people wear briefs, so don't put them there, skinners!
Also: A lot of angles are used where they shouldn't be, what's wrong with attempting curves and using straight lines? It works pretty well.
Most people making bikini skins for some unknown reason choose terrible skin tones, I am going for an anime style so mine is pretty soft, but I've seen some very sunburn affected skins out there!

Tell me if you like them!

Much better than the other Bikini Girl skins! I just can't figure out why they're so popular when most are so... not great?

You need to get on Planet MC so I can watch your stuff; you are really good skin artist, a bit critical, but good!

I'd love to see more stuff from you!

Also, a theory I have with all the crappy girls skins; There arn't a lot of good skin artists who do a lot of female skins. When sites like Planet MC and skindex formed up there was only a few skins out there that were just like this skin (only in shit teir) so they downloaded those and that became the popular thing.

Plus, I've been critiqued by a lot of people (mostly girls, some guys) to keep the skins simple without any textures on the skin as it makes it look to "rough". This was more so when my skins where very awful though so it may of been the older way I was texturing? idk

Anyways, nice work man; I want to see more of your stuff <3

I have a lot of stuff, chances are if you play on a SMP server then you've already come across one of my skins, the most popular (And edited) is my French Maid skin, it was my first skin and it caught on, most French Maid skins are edits of it as a result.

Yeah, I think I've seen your skins in the Anime Skins thread, I really like them! Ditto Twidragon, you should consider getting a Planet Minecraft account. I'd definitely subscribe!

Why did you even have to say this?

Anyone find the creeper?

I made this goth girl character:

On my screen, the picture is spinning too fast to see.  Sorry, I thought it was like that for everyone, assumed it was a broken pic.

It takes more than a second to rotate all the way around which is pretty slow.
Unless you're on Opera, then it's blazing fast.

Here's the happy looking anime girl from above:

I've seen you post skins in more topics and I just need to say, you're the best skin maker I've seen so far.
Every single one of your skins is just gorgeous. <3

A small question though, could you post an instant layer of the cat one too? :3

And I'm not the best Skinner, I just kept perfecting a style, some people prefer noise added to skins which I never do so not everyone would like my skins
