You can download your existing skin here : www.minecraft.net/skin/USERNAME.png
The default skin is good place to start, but sometimes being begat by Steve is not a good place to start of personalizing your online character's appearance if you really want to be set appart from the crowd. Skins are simply .png format graphics as show above, and you can download one from a nubmer of different sites. The end result:
- MCSkinner and other editors all allow you to start from a skin you have snagged elsewhere on the web.
- So download a skin to your computer, and then load it up in the skin editor you have chosen.
- Save the skin as a file on disk, and then login to minecraft net to update with your new file.
- Fire up your Mminecraft client to see the fruits of your labour.
