In case you didn’t know, it is no longer necessary for you to be stealing someone else’s skin in Minecraft. Since there have been several editors for some time that allow you to create your own skin and upload it to the game. These are available for both PC and mobile devices, so you can unleash your creativity wherever you want.

Take into account that having done everything below, you will have your own skin, but nothing else will change. So if you want to further customize your world for a better experience, you must install mods on Minecraft PC Windows 10, Mac, Android and iPhone. 

Skin editor main tools

If you want to learn how to make or create a skin with a skin editor in Minecraft , you have to keep in mind that everything depends on you, because the programs are very easy to obtain. In this guide you will see the basics that you have to know to use these tools.

The program you will use is obviously the one with the title called skin editor, this can be found by simply typing its name in the web browser. Once you are inside it, you will notice that there are several options with which you can create your skin, and you will also get a 3D model of a Minecraft character.


To use a tool you just have to click on it or press the corresponding shortcut key on the keyboard, the ones that are available are: Pencil (which is the one that will create the colors inside the doll), eraser (allows you to delete everything that you apply).

Autotone (this also colors the pixels on top of the 3D model, but depending on the color you have chosen, it changes it automatically to give it shadow and shine), color selector or eyedropper (this lets you directly choose a color of the doll to use).

And finally the bucket, this will completely fill a section of the doll. In addition to these tools, you can also zoom and decrease it , as well as change the size of the pencil. In the same way you can remove a part of the body from the model with the squares that appear in the lower right corner.

Take into account before moving on to the creation part, that if you do not follow the steps as they are, then you will get the error “I do not see skins or my skin in Minecraft” , so be careful.

How to make or create a skin with skin editor in Minecraft?

Now that you have learned what the tools are, you are ready to make or create a skin with a skin editor in Minecraft. As in reality everything depends on you and your tastes, here what you will see is how to use each tool.

You just have to choose the brush from the list and then select a color , in the gradient circle that is on the right side. After this, you just have to touch one of the pixel boxes and the color will be there. If you want to rotate the doll to paint elsewhere, stand next to it without touching it and click, then rotate the mouse.


At the same time, complement the previous tool with the Autotone, when you go to make highlights and shadows, because it will choose the tones that are best seen according to your color. If you want to save time, first use the bucket to fill and then the Autotone to give consistency to the figure.

In the event that you have placed a color and you do not know what it is, but you want to use it again, use the dropper , since it will extract the exact extract. For your convenience and because they are small pixels, use the zoom magnifier so you don’t make mistakes.

When finished, simply hit the “Download” button and that’s it. Now you can say that you know everything you need to be able to make or create a skin with a skin editor in Minecraft, it is time for you to leave here and put your creativity and technique into practice.

In the event that you do not know how to place said skin on you and you have the doubt how to make my Minecraft skin look in multiplayer ?, then you must perform the same steps as in offline mode (if you do not know on the web you can find it )
